    Default The Future of Jailbreaking: New Developments!


    Two big new developments concerning the future of jailbreaking and unlocking our iPhones have arisen recently. @Comex, the developer of the insanely-popular one-click Spirit jailbreak, has officially announced that a jailbreak for ALL iOS 4 devices has already been developed and will be made public in the very near future. As of right now, 4.0 can currently only be jailbroken by updating an already-jailbroken 3.1.2 device using PwnageTool or sn0wbreeze, so while 3G and iPod touch G2 owners can simply downgrade their devices to 3.1.2, devices that use the Apple update verification method (3G S or newer) can only downgrade with SHSHs on file, and therefore, have to have been jailbroken previously.

    iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) users must have an already jailbroken device on 3.1.2 or must downgrade to 3.1.2 with SHSHs on file with Cydia before jailbreaking up to 4.0 using PwnageTool (mac) or Snowbreeze (win). iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G (old bootrom) users can simply upgrade to 4.0 via iTunes and jailbreak with redsn0w. New bootrom iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 2G users can not currently jailbreak 4.0. There are guides for all the above in our guides section. Of course iPhone 4 users can not jailbreak right now.

    In addition, @MuscleNerd and @planetbeing are hard at work developing a carrier unlock for the new iPhone 4. Being in possession of the new iOS 4 jailbreak from comex, they can develop and ready an unlock before the new jailbreak is made public.

    The future of the jailbreaking scene is looking bright; be sure to thank and donate to these hard-working hackers!

    I still predict the jailbreak will be held until Apple releases their firmware update for the signal issue.

    Sounds awesome!

    Will also be donating!

    I hope they won't wait, I haven't noticed any real issues that would make me worry about updating anyway. I really hope they don't wait.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking as soon as Apple said they were releasing a fix. Either way at least we're getting closer to Jailbreaking our IP4's.

    I honestly dont think this is coming out "soon". We have heard this for a week or more that it's complete and soon to me means within the week. I dont see this being released until apple releases the first update which is coming in 2 to 3 weeks (rumored). I am not updating my firmware as because the signal issue is hardware not software...if you hold your phone and lose signal and drop a call how will a software prevent me from losing my signal completely? It wont so its a waste of time. Release the jailbreak now and get a ton of money from donations. When the new update hits in 3 weeks (you will have a ton of money by this time) start working on another jailbreak and take advantage of the idiots that "accidently" update and get more donations when you release another jailbreak. You have my 40 bucks when its released.

    It is userland but a JB none the less. It appears as if it is a different exploit however. If this is working I am curious as to why there is no release date yet...don't get me wrong I'm not one of those ***** holes that will just sit here and ***** but I am curious as to whether it's still too buggy and therefore dangerous, if @comex is waiting for 4.0.1/4.1 or whatever to avoid an Apple patch(which will be terribly easy for them considering it's not a BR exploit), if he's waiting for a BB unlock or a combination of the 3? Can't wait though, I feel so sandboxed :-(. Either way congrats and thanks to comex, musclenerd, planetbeing and others for all of your time and effort. As a side note it seems as if geohot is no longer active in deving JBs, rather unfortunate if that is in fact the case...I wish he would collab again with the dev team but sh!t happens I guess...
