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!
Go to http://www.jailbreakme.com or http://www.jailbreakme.modmyi.com

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

If you are stuck on Purple Screen, RESET your Network Settings and try again.

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! 😀

UPDATE: iPhone 4 Unlock is finally out!

Ultrasn0w 1.0-1 is available at repo666.ultrasn0w.com

  1. What is the point of new jailbreak if it is not gonna help all iDevices which stuck in the Emergency Call screen?

    • Well, it simply means it won’t “Hacktivate” your iPhone. Thousands of users around the globe will be able to Unlock their Activated iPhones! Install Apps! Enable Tethering for free! Install tweaks! Change themes! It offers lots if things!
      Alas, but some people with inactivated iPhones will have to wait for a new tool to arrive. 😦

      • Just don’t get it! The whole point of Spirit tool is to make a iPhone work. The whole iPhone community has the problem of “emergency mode stucking” (excl. nevrlocks). That is pretty odd, I’m so disappointed 😦

      • Ya. I know. That sucks. But still, all people with Activated iPhones are way too happy!
        So, 50% users are NOT happy and other 50% are.

      • Oh yeah. I forgot about Phonebook SIM.
        Try it. I have never tried it though. But it does work. 🙂
        You can use that too!

    • Check out this YouTube tutorial. I activated my iPhone the same way, shouldn’t be too much of a hassle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igFQu_lZ2fg

  2. No it means that you would need to barrow a official s card real quick it’s not a big deal once it’s verified you can use it with out the official sim

    I have an iPhone 3GS with new bootrom. Running iOS 4.0. I’m wondering if @comex jailbreak will benefit me?

    • Yes!
      This Jailbreak is for you!
      It will jailbreak any device running iOS 4.0 or 4.0.1.
      I would suggest, once the JB is out. Update to 4.0.1, NOT 4.1 and then Jailbreak it.
      Comex’s Jailbreak will work on iPhone 3GS new bootroom/old bootroom 4.0 and 4.0.1.

  4. Will this help with iPad 3.2.1 too?

  5. Hi.
    I got an Orange UK simlocked iphone 3gs, with 4.0 and baseband 05.13.04 new bootrom.
    Will i be able to jailbreak and unlock my iphone for other network sim cards? such as o2 and others? Maybe if i activate it with a phonebook sim?

    • @Gabriel

      Yes. Definitely. I would recommend getting a Prepaid SIM (10£) from Qrange UK. Just put it in your iPhone and your iPhone will be activated. Then use the Jailbreak tool from Comex to Jailbreak and Unlock your iPhone and then you can use your favorite carrier.
      You can also use PhoneBook SIM instead of Prepaid SIM.
      Donot upgrade to iOS 4.1.
      You are safe to upgrade to iOS 4.0.1.

  6. Will this jailbreak my iPod touch 3rd Generation 32gb?

  7. Well, when is it comming then? and where can i download it from when it arrives?

  8. Can’t wAit

  9. I appreciate your piece of work, thanks for all the interesting articles .
