Spirit 4.0 and 4.0.1 Jailbreak by Comex for all iDevices coming soon!

It’s has been quite a some time, since Apple released iOS 4 for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 2G, iPod touch 3G and iPhone 4.
iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G are currently “Jailbreakable” using Redsn0w 0.9.5.
iPhone 3GS is “Jailbreakable” using Sn0wbreeze v1.8BETA and Pwnage Tool (Unofficial Release). However, you must be “Pwned” or Jailbroken on 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 earlier.
Some people (including myself) just got a new iPhone 3GS, so they were not “Pwned” on 3.1.3. Therefore, till now iPhone 3GS users couldn’t Jailbreak and Unlock their devices.
Newly Released, iPhone 4, is totally “un-Jailbreakable” as if for now.

Comex, the developer of popular Userland Jailbreak, “Spirit” tweeted that he is no longer waiting for iOS 4.1 and will be releasing Spirit-like Jailbreak for all Devices mentioned above!
He did not state any particular date or time by when his new Spirit-like Jailbreak will be available.
He mentioned that his new Jailbreak will JAILBREAK iOS 4.0 and iOS 4.0.1.
@Comex is expected to release his Jailbreak today itself or by upcoming Weekend.
Finally, wait for all iPhone Users, who were waiting to Jailbreak and Unlock their iPhones using Ultrasn0w is over.
On the other hand, iPhone Dev Team announced that they will updating Ultrasn0w to include UNLOCK FOR iPHONE 4.

I think this week is going to be pretty busy and interesting.
Comex has suggested that everyone should save their iOS 4.0 and iOS 4.0.1 SHSH Blobs. (Incase of any future failure).
He doesn’t want people to be trapped and forced to update to iOS 4.1 by Apple and therefore making impossible to Jailbreak on 4.1.
The conclusion you can seek is that if you want to keep your Jailbreak (and your iPhones UNLOCKED) you SHOULDN’T update to iOS 4.1 (when it’s made available).

I will inform you when Spirit is available.

Follow @Comex or @amodkant for live Twitter feed about iPhone Jailbreak.

UPDATE: Comex says that his Jailbreak will take few more days.

UPDATE: All PMAPS are done. Jailbreak is 99.9% complete.

@iH8sn0w says that even though all PMAPS are done and Jailbreak is complete, Jailbreak won’t come out tonight or even tomorrow.
Because lots of Testing is required.
However, Sunday Night release is very much possible.
Stay tuned!

UPDATE: MuscleNerd says new Spirit won’t jailbreak iPhones STUCK at Emergency Call Screen.
This means that you WON’T be able to hacktivate your iPhone using Comex’s Jailbreak tool. 😦
Sorry Guys. 😦

UPDATE: According to an interview for a podcast, Comex said, that his Jailbreak is “next to done”. He was just waiting for Saurik to complete Bootstrap integration in Jailbreak. Once that is done, they will head over to Public Release!
Today I received a Direct Message from Saurik (Jay Freeman) saying that he had already provided Comex with completed Jailbreak.
Here is a picture for your reference:

So guys this is it!
Jailbreak should be made public this weekend itself!
Stay tuned!
Follow @amodkant for latest news!

UPDATE: “JailbreakMe” is OUT now!

Just SLIDE TO JAILBREAK and wait. Don’t touch anything in-between the process.

To Unlock iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS install Ultrasn0w 0.93 from Cydia.
Unlock for iPhone 4 will be out soon. (Ultrasn0w 1.0)

Good Luck! 😀

iOS 4 (Official) Jailbreak with Redsn0w!

Yes! This is TRUE! The new iOS 4 released about 5 hours ago, has been Jailbroken already and i am running a Jailbroken iPod touch 2G with Multitasking and Home Screen Wallpapers!

iOS 4 has been Jailbreaked!!!

Redsn0w Beta 5, 1 is working with iOS 4 (Official). When it asks for the .IPSW file, just feed in the ORIGINAL GOLDEN MASTER (GM) .IPSW file. It will continue to Jailbreak your Device and enable Multitasking and Homescreen Wallpapers!

While using Redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta 5,2, it crashed in between the Procedure.

Therefore, i was unable to activate Battery Percentage!

Download Golden Master (GM) .IPSW

Download Redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta 5, 1

Download Redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta 5, 2

Some people are facing problems with “iBooks App for iPhone” after using RedSn0w Beta, including myself.
All that you need to do, is download the latest (Redsn0w 0.9.5 Beta 5,4) and run it again. JUST UN-TICK THE ‘CYDIA’ OPTION. And you’re done!

Other Alternatives such as Sn0wbreeze and PwnageTool (Mac Only) are also out.

*Note
Redsn0w 0.9.5 Betas ONLY WORKS WITH iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G.
(Basically for enabling Multitasking and Home Screen Wallpapers).

Apple SURPRISES us again! iOS 4 issues! iBooks now available!

iOS 4 was made available to Public at 10:10 AM PST.

But, like always, Apple has surprised us again, though in a negative manner.

While Installing iOS 4, “Backing up…” your iPhone/iPod touch is COMPULSORY. However, many people around the world are reporting that, their iTunes is stuck at “Backing up…” and it shows them 72 Hours to Back up. This is highly unacceptable. Some People seems to look into the matter and want to wait until this “Backing up….” is over. Whereas, some have left their hopes and will wait until Apple looks into the matter and solves the Problem.

Then, again, iOS 4 Update doesn’t have “Game Center” Application that WAS present in iOS 4 Golden Master version. Reason is unknown for as to WHY Apple removed Game Center from OS.

Unexpectedly, Apple tells that this iOS 4 version is same as that of Golden Master version, however, when i tried to “Jailbreak” this iOS with Redsn0w 0.9.5, it failed to process the .IPSW file.

This proves it’s NOT the same OS.

iBooks is available in App Store now.

DVDs can hold 1,000x times more Data than the Blu-ray, according to Japanese Research.

While we’re waiting for the Blu-ray Disc Association to upgrade discs to 128GB capacity, Japanese scientists have found a way to increase DVD capacity by 1,000 times—using just a slick of metal material over each disc.

According to Shin-ichy Ohkoshi, the chemistry professor at the University of Tokyo leading the project, painting a variant of titanium oxide onto a DVD will conduct electricity when put under light, but when taken away from light it turns back into black metal.

Although it’s unlikely to hit the market—at least, not anytime before the BDA launches those new discs—the Japanese team’s claims of the DVDs holding 1,000 more data than a Blu-ray certainly are impressive.

Blu-rays hold about five times the data of DVDs currently (25GB per single-layered disc and 50GB for dual-layered discs, compared to 4.7GB for single-layered DVDs or 8.5GB for double-layered), and despite millions each year buying a Blu-ray player, plenty more still own DVD players and have no plans to upgrade.
