  • Beta Testers Needed for Untethered Jailbreak


    MuscleNerd is looking for Mac users to help test the "Jailbreak Monte" 4.2.1 untethered jailbreak, which the Dev-Team is pushing out this weekend ahead of @comex's more extensible method. If you have an iPhone4, iPad, or iPod touch 4G and are interested in redsn0w 0.9.7b1, be aware that it is beta code, and it's very possible that things can go wrong. Make sure you have all your media backed up just in case. You'll need to have 4.2b3 SHSH hashes saved on Cydia (no pirate versions!) and if you're using the ultrasn0w carrier unlock, you should avoid this beta.

    Here's some notes from the Dev-Team Blog:
    • This is a beta tester program. Itís not a general release! Things can go very wrong, so please donít even consider testing if you have pictures or other media on your device that you havenít backed up!
    • For the same reason, please donít participate if you rely on the ultrasn0w carrier unlock. Wait for the final version!
    • Until we fix some sandbox issues with bluetooth, the bluetooth functionality is disabled.
    • This very first beta1 is limited to iPhone4, iPad, and iPod touch 4G.
    • Cydia must have your 4.2b3 SHSH blobs saved on file. (As we approach a general release, weíll provide a way to let you use locally saved hashes too).
    • You must already have the usbmuxd software installed and running on your Mac (this requirement will eventually go away too). The correct invocation of the relay is just as that page says: ď./tcprelay.py -t 22:2222Ē. If the relay isnít installed or running correctly by the time the redsn0w ramdisk has started, youíll need to restore to stock FW again to try it again. Please test it beforehand to save yourself some time!

      They don't "just release the damn thing already" because there are still a lot of bugs. So unless you're ok with a glitchy JB I'd take up meditation and get some patience.

      Awesome that they're getting close.

      Is this even a good idea to be asking for testers to volunteer?

      What if apple secretly has someone here on modmyi and he volunteers and is given the JB. They will only patch that up a lot sooner and release the 4.3 firmware

I'm curious as to whether or not it's an issue with the beta jb or an incompatability issue with one of my cydia apps.
      Need for speed: Hot Pursuit Crashes at the EA Logo causing the iPad to go into safe mode. I dont really use any cydia apps other then winterboard ATM.

      Sucks for people like me who had to get their iPhone 4 replaced. No blobs saved for me

      Yea its definitely not worth it for the everyday user. That's why it says beta and wasnt posted on the dev teams main page. And to be honest it probably shouldn't be posted here on MMI's main page either.

      I can't find 4.2b3 for iPad, iPhone 4, or 3GS anywhere, so can't even try it. Any ideas?

      You are aware you can do a untethered jb on 4.1 to your I4 with greenpois0n or limera1n if you would like to get off 4.0.1

      Comex should be very close to a full untether release, I would say within the week considering his original eta was for xmass.

      I think I will wait for that one. This one seems like a lot of work for something that is buggy. But thats the point of betas I suppose.

      That iClarified walkthrough I posted earlier makes it a breeze to do. I was untethered in about ten minutes, and most (9 minutes) of that was just waiting for packages to install for usbmuxd and such.

      Ya. I saw the tutorial. I have no doubt I could do it easily. Just dont like the idea of the task switcher not working. Maybe I will give it a go on my iTouch 4G.
