  • iOS 4.2 Now Available : Not Ready For Jailbreak


    Just as Paul had said early this morning, iOS 4.2 has now been greenlit to go live and is available for download to the public. Many iPad users will be excited for this, of course that is unless you require/love/need/want a jailbreak.

    If your hoping to jump on the iOS 4.2 firmware, do not expect a jailbreak to be ready just yet. This may take a few weeks to a month, or even a day. What's important right now, is to stay on iOS 4.1 and make sure your SHSH Blobs are saved. This will ensure you can always preform a jailbreak on your device at this firmware version. If you do not want to lose your jailbreak, DO NOT UPDATE to iOS 4.2 yet. Pleas wait until official tools have been updated/released.

    While the new features look great, be patient, and in time you will be able to upgrade. But for now, play safe, and stay away from that update.

    Of course, we will let you know when a new tool surfaces to be used with iOS 4.2.

    For those waiting for an unlock on iOS 4.1, this is good news, as you can bet there will be one shortly, now that iOS 4.2 is available.

      iOS 4.2.1 has already been jailbroken, its just not an untethered jailbreak - AS REPORTED ON GIZMODO YESTERDAY. I'll be looking forward to your comments about yesterday's development in 36-48 hours! See you then, ModMyi Staff Writers!

      That jailbreak that was released (redsn0w 0.9.6b3) is not a jailbreak for the masses for 4.2.1. Cydia does not open on it so it should not be used by anyone that doesn't know how to fix that or use command line to use cydia. Once one of the jailbreaks come out that support 4.2.1 and install a updated cydia then this article is accurate.

      It breaks Cydia right now for some reason iirc, but the whole point of the tethered jailbreak as released yesterday is just so that developers for Cydia have a chance to make sure their apps are compatible with the new firmware ASAP before the whole scene updates to 4.2.1 and gets a working Cydia.

      And its also for very impatient people.

      you can downgrade back to 3.2.2 or 4.1 from 4.2 or 4.2.1 with itunes 10.1 very easily. If you update, you go back to 3.2.2 anytime you want. Its not that big of a deal

      Airplay is actually pretty cool. Streaming from iPhone 3Gs to AppleTV 2nd Gen is pretty hot. Remember, with the iOS4.2.1 release, 2nd Gen AppleTV also gets updated as this update unifies all iOS devices.

      I originally heard that we would be able to customize our text message sound as it seems everyone in the world is using the same sound and it gets annoying in crowded places, however I have not seen where or how this can be done, it still looks like the same old sound selector in the message notification settings.

      AirPrint looks like it needs an AirPrint printer, so the sad rumors are true. Just because your printer is shared on your network, doesn't make it an AirPrint printer.
