  • 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.

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.
      I didn't know there might be a tweak, so you're saying I'm safe to get a new i4 and JB, then I can download a tweak to untether it? If it's not a cydia tweak then will we have to just run redsnow again or what? I just don't want to jailbreak tethered then have to restore my phone or anything later and redownload everything again...

      The dev team one will be a new setting in redsnow most likely (but you need at least 4.2b3 SHSH or 4.1SHSH). The comex one I have been hearing may be as simple as installing something in cydia after doing the initial redsnow tethered jailbreak.

      I have 4.2b3 SHSH, iPhone4 and do not need a unlock, just a untethered jb for 4.2. Does any one know where this beta is? I'll give it a shot. I also asked on Twitter but never got a response.

      Thx

      All I know from all the rumors going around of a delay in iOS 4.2 untethered JB is that I will be downgrading my iPod Touch 4G from 4.2 to 4.1. Even if the untethered JB is released I won't update because all my apps from Cydia that I love won't be compatible. I'll wait until iOS 4.3 or iOS 5, whenever that may come out.

      Why? Just about everything in Cydia has been updated to 4.2.1. Well, all of the main apps at least.

      That's true but not EVERYTHING will be updated. About everything is already good for 4.1 so why upgrade to 4.2 and lose some apps and tweaks. iOS 4.1 works fine so I'm staying with that.

      The beta redsnow is out now. But it requires quite a bit to get it working. Not for general use yet.

      There are 2 very useful things that need to be updated for the i4 or newer ios (not sure which), Transparent clock and transparent sliders, it enables you to take away the nasty looking bars on the top and bottom so you just have a nice clean lockscreen!! Either way I hope the 4.2 JB for new devices is out VERY soon. not sure how long I can handle having a stock iphone once I get my new one...

      It'd have to be for newer OS, because I had both on my iPhone 4 with 4.1 running.

      Not true... I have transparent clock and slider and I'm still on 4.0.1 (never saw a compelling reason to update and risk losing unlock).

      I'm talking about the people that are on 4.1 or later, I got an i4 last night luckily it was on 4.1 so I'm jailbroken untethered... they don't work...

      Well well,the latest news on jailbreak 4.2.1 will release on 30th Dec.(jailbreakme.com 3.0)!
      But I'm wondering will it be the same on 2.0; A big "hole" on the start-up screen??? Hope that it would be a more perfect on an "imperfect" device ^ ^,
