As many of us continue to wait for a stable release of an untethered jailbreak for current generation iPhones, iPods, and iPads on firmware 4.2.1, the iPhone Dev Team has announced that they are already at work on a jailbreak for the Verizon iPhone.
The team has been working on a jailbreak for firmware 4.2.5 (first seen on the Verizon iPhone 4) and 4.3 beta, which was just released to developers by Apple on Wedenesday. However, Dev Team member MuscleNerd has posted on his twitter that nothing will be released until after the current firmwares are out of beta, simply because "Most people can't take advantage of betas." We also suspect that it has something to do with the fact that they want to be extremely careful about the exploits they find, so that Apple will not patch them up before the update is released.
I'm sure the moment Verizon customers get their hands on the iPhone, there will be plenty of people chomping at the bit to get their brand new phone's jailbroken, so it is great news that initial progress is already being made, even before anyone's gotten their hands on one.
As reported earlier, MuscleNerd seems like a pretty busy guy these days, as he recently tweeted his progress on an unlock for the iphone 4. So, the JB and unlock community will continue to play the waiting game, while the Dev Team works their magic once again. We'll keep you posted as things continue to pan out.

Why do we need a second article on this?
MMi has seemed really redundant lately

It's "champing" or "chomping" at the bit, not "chopping."

Well, go dev team!You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

i just hope that they'll release it as soon as 4.3 is out of beta, and not delay it further for maybe iOS 5, so as to save the exploit for a more major iOS update...

Is it just me or does Apple seem to be gaining ground on the whole cat and mouse game with the Dev Team?
back in the iOS 1.x and 2.x days it felt like we had jailbreaks and new baseband unlocks on day one of a new iOS update. Even with 3.x they felt pretty quick, but since 4.0 it feels like the Dev Team seems to be always waiting until the next update.
I'm not complaining, I understand they want to save as many exploits as possible, and I'm happy to stay on 4.1, but it's almost as if Apple is announcing new iOS updates much more frequently now just to keep the Dev Team from releasing new jailbreaks.
What happened the exploit that would jailbreak all current iOS Devices? Was it not supposed to jailbreak all current hardware regardless of new software updates?

I write Mac only tutorials for the iPhone and own every model. My iPhones run on the following SIMs/networks: AT&T, GoPhone, H2O, O2, SimpleMobile, T-Mobile and Verizon.

Hello matt I'm pretty sure 2 of your 3 posts have been reports of previously mentioned topics, leaving your last post to be your greeting. Not trying to be a **** but you should check if the topic your about to post has been mentioned already

Sorry about the redundancy! Just wanted to point out the Verizon JB info, along with the unlock info already written on the site.
And "chopping" has been fixed to "chomping"
Thanks for keeping me on my toes on day 2
