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.
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!
Follow @amodkant for latest news!
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
The iPhone Dev Team are the first out of the gate, to release a jailbreak tool for iPhone OS 4.0.
MuscleNerd announced, on Twitter, that they have released redsn0w 0.9.5, for Mac.
Redsn0w 0.9.5 supports iPhone 3G, on iPhone OS 4.0. This is for developers only, though, as you still need to have your iPhone 3G’s UDID properly registered with a Apple Developer account. This is basically a pre-release, so that devs can get their jailbroken apps ready for the official OS 4.0 release.
The Dev Team warns that the normal user should stay away from this, as there is not a lot of jailbreak apps that work with OS 4.0. Also, your baseband will be upgraded to 05.13, cannot be unlocked, and cannot be downgraded. YOU ARE WARNED!!
Here’s some details, from the iPhone Dev Team:
“”This is a beta release of redsn0w targeted at developers of jailbroken apps. It uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that we’ve been using since the 2.x days. Nothing new is revealed to Apple, and it’s not applicable to the iPad. Don’t go near it if you use yellowsn0w, ultrasn0w, or blacksn0w.
Please not that this beta is not meant for the average end-user. There are many things “broken” with jailbroken apps in the 4.0beta1 environment right now (that’s the real reason we showed “Veency” in the 4.0 jailbreak demo video last week, instead of say MobileTerminal.app, which is broken!). This beta redsn0w allows the developers behind those jailbroken apps (like MobileTerminal.app!) to fix their software before the general public gets iphoneOS 4.0.
Because it’s meant for JB app developers, this beta redsn0w does not perform hactivation. You’ll need a properly-registered developer UDID with Apple to get past the activation screen. For similar reasons, there is no Windows version of this beta redsn0w (since apps are developed on MacOSX). Please don’t pirate Apple software.
Anyone other than developers of jailbroken apps porting their software to 4.0beta1 should still be using our previously-released redsn0ws for 3.0 through 3.1.3″”
