"SHAtter" Will Jailbreak iPod Touch 4G, iPhone 4, and iPad
That's right, you read that correctly. In the recent flurry of the iOS 4.1 release, there has been some great breakthroughs in regards to jailbreaking your iDevice. posixninja and pod2g have discovered the first exploit of the S5L8930 chip, aka, the A4, which allows the use of unsigned code execution in order to create a tethered jailbreak, which as far as current hardware released is concerned, a jailbreak for life. This particular chip is used in the iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod Touch 4G. This same vulnerability is the one that was discovered independently by geohot, who abandoned the community a few months ago. However, his name lives on through new jailbreaks today, including the Playstation 3.
Respected members of the Dev Team, like MuscleNerd have also confirmed that this new exploit does indeed work on all of the currently available devices, and works with the newest iOS 4.1. He says on twitter, "That latest exploit from @pod2g confirmed to work beyond iPhone4...also on at least iPad and yesterday's iPod4G too ", which is a great confidence booster for the skeptical.
One should note however, that not everything is publicly available yet. These guys are hard at work trying to get everything ready. So if your thinking to update to iOS 4.1 assuming there is a jailbreak, you should slow down, as things take time and need to be released properly. Remember, what they are talking about here is a Tethered jailbreak, but that doesn't mean an untethered one will follow suit, as this exploit is an initial starting point for all new untethered exploits to come as well. My guess would be that when a release does come around, it will include the ability to be untethered, otherwise it would be much more ideal to stay on iOS 4.0.1.
Using this method means that Apple cannot fix this exploit without updating it's hardware first, just as they did with the iPhone 3GS bootrom exploit. So until they update the hardware, there is hope for all of us. Does this mean you should go out and buy your new iDevice before they fix this? It's not going to be any time soon that Apple will be doing hardware updates, so don't get too worried just yet.
Keep your eyes peeled, as you can bet we will be posting any updates here at MMi. It's a good time in the jailbreaking universe

So if I understand correctly, there's now this exploit, another userland exploit, AND a bootrom exploit? Heh, Apple don't stand a chance.

09-09-2010, 01:39 PM #10Great!!!!!
This is the best news I've heard since the i4 was jb. I would much rather an unteathered jb, but I'll definitely take what they are so nice to give. Very happy to hear this & excited too.
09-09-2010, 01:39 PM #11
I was under the impression this was a bootrom exploit as it is under the bootrom exploit section in the iphone wiki. Although at the time of writing this post all the info for SHATter has vanished. This is reported to be a tethered jailbreak. An iBoot exploit is needed for an untethered jailbreak, right?
09-09-2010, 01:41 PM #12
So the article states it is a tethered jailbreak which "is an initial starting point for all new untethered exploits to come as well."
Am I correct in assuming the dev team would probably wait to release an untethered jailbreak and it likely will be at least a month as there is still much work to be done.
Can't wait as the proximity sensor is annoying and I want Game Center, but no way I'm giving up my jailbreak.I thought my carrier was bad til I got a new web host
09-09-2010, 01:42 PM #13
Anyone heard a time-frame on release for this? I know they posted they had an exploit for 4.0 quickly but waited a while to release it. It'd be awesome if it was within the next few days. I'll donate either way tho, these guys are awesome.
09-09-2010, 01:42 PM #14
damn thats awesome, these guys be doing work!! And thank u for the jailbreaks guy!! Also i dont kno what the PS3 part is about but if it means there is a jailbreak for it, im checking it out
09-09-2010, 01:43 PM #15
this is great news. I have a 3Gs on 4.0.1 and i need to get a replacement phone through warranty cause my speaker sounds blown and i need an unlock and jailbreak to use on the new one. Keep up the great work guysi used to pray to the Lord every night and ask Him for a bicycle- but then i realized that God doesn't work that way, so I stole one and prayed for Him to forgive me...

Ugh so once again a tethered jailbreak
If I have helped you then thank me.

p0sixninja has posted a Wiki, which seems to be getting updated. I imagine the website is getting hit pretty hard right now.
yes remember that what is mentioned here is a tethered jailbreak, however, due to the nature of the exploit, you should see an untethered jailbreak released.
The A4, is a SoC, which is basically a system on a chip. So you can imagine what they have accomplished here can pretty much do anything you'd like. Which reminds me, keep an eye out for fakes.
