  • Untethered Jailbreak by Christmas?


    A now-you-see-it, now-you-don't tweet from @MuscleNerd has again raised hopes that we'll see an untethered 4.2.1 jailbreak by Christmas. Having responded to someone asking about the JB that Christmas was "an achievable deadline," he then deleted the tweet, leaving open questions as to whether he thought that was too confident a statement.

    Earlier this month, @comex had promised a untethered jailbreak by Christmas in a tweet. Soon thereafter, @MuscleNerd showed off a video of just such a jailbreak that used "mysterious 4.2b3 hashes Cydia kept for you." In a tweet announcing the video, @MuscleNerd called it a "backup plan" to the more extensible jailbreak @comex is working on.

    In any case, it looks like the Dev-Team guys are feeling confident about their progress, so chances are good that we'll see an untethered jailbreak for 4.2.1 in our stocking sometime in the week to come.

      The released may be delayed because the exploit has been leaked.
      Here it is :

      The SHAtter jailbreak which was being saved for the next iPhone update has been leaked, according to tweets by MuscleNerd and p0sixninja.

      P0sixninja is publicly accusing MuscleNerd of leaking the exploit; however, MuscleNerd states this is not the case and would be illogical for him to leak the exploit since he needs the jailbreak to perform an unlock for the next device. He also notes that there were 15 others in the room when the code was posted by pod2g.

      Unfortunately, this likely means Apple will block the exploit by the time any new iDevices are released.

      The exploit (and payload) was developed by @pod2g a few months after @p0sixninja discovered the crash. You can watch the jailbreak demonstrated below.

      Also of interest, p0sixninja says that an untethered bootrom exploit is still on the way. You can read more of the discussion from both sides via the link to their twitter accounts below...

      That doesnt really have anything to do with the untethered release though Yeow. The untethered release may be delayed because comex tweeted earlier that he may not make his xmas deadline.

      I don't know if this is old news to you guys, but it's news to me: It looks like redsn0w are aiming for a release (untethered 4.2.1 that is) this Christmas Weekend, that's THIS WEEKEND! WooHOO! Check it out here They're looking for MAC testers at the moment.

      Confirmed! They're looking for Mac Testers and have a notice up on the devteam blog I don't know what they mean by "backup plan" but it's a step in the right direction anyway. I guess the rumours that it wouldn't be finished for christmas are unfounded.

      Well, if you're a Mac owner, and have the proper shsh blobs saved. Merry Christmas to you via MuscleNerd. He has released a testing jailbreak for those who qualify. Not sure if anyone knew already. I had to work all day, and just got home and checked out twitter. Hope all goes well, so that the windows version can come by New Years.

      Merry Christmas to you all!!! Regardless of the jailbreak being released in time.

      Can anyone tell me why my(iPhone 4) ShSh on cydia is juz only 4.2.1 yet my current fw is 4.1
      And the most interesting part was my new i4 actual version was 4.2.1 but after I restored my info/data from iTunes,it 'really' restore back to 4.1 so I again jailbreak it with limera1n...
      So can I upgrade to 4.2 or how I can shsh my current 4.1??

      Don't trust any jailbreaks unless they come from the Dev's....there are plenty of fake jailbreaks sites out there.

      That video doesnt prove anything. He doesnt even try to open up cydia after rebooting. It is a semi-tethered jailbreak so as long as certain things are not installed from cydia the phone can still boot fine. I bet any money if he had tried to open cydia it would have crashed.

      Everybody does the jailbreak that way as shown in that video. Doesnt mean it is untethered. There are two untethered hacks in the works. The dev team should be releasing a beta of their backup plan one that requires 4.2b3 SHSH this weekend. Comex is working on his which will probably be as simple as installing a tweak in cydia to become untethered, he was trying for xmas but is running a bit behind, should be soon though. Anyone else claiming to have a untethered jailbreak for new devices on 4.2.1 is just BSing.
