As of last night, @iH8snow along with @pushfix released an untethered solution for Verizon iPhone users on 4.2.7. Sn0wbreeze v2.6.1 is now available on the iH8sn0w website at the following address:
It is currently only available for Windows users and hopefully will be transferred to a Mac client soon.
For those who are currently jailbroken on a tethered 4.2.7 can use a package by @pushfix to make it untethered. Follow the steps below to do this:
• Add this repo: http://cydia.pushfix.info
• Install the package “Verizon Untether for 4.2.7”
• And now you’re untethered
Following the release of the updated PwnageTool 4.3.2 jailbreak tool, the iPhone Dev Team has also pushed out an update to the UltraSn0w unlock in Cydia.
UltraSn0w 1.2.2 has been released to support the new iOS 4.3.2 firmware, as the previous version of UltraSn0w (1.2.1) was broken in iOS 4.3.2. Please note, this will only work for the older iPhone 4 baseband 1.59.00, and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 4.26.08, 5.11.07, 5.12.01, 5.13.04, and 6.15.00. It can not unlock newer basebands since there is currently no unlock available.
The Dev Team has provided the following information on their blog…
“Note that there’s a corresponding update to ultrasn0w, which has been bumped up to v1.2.2 to get along with iOS 4.3.2 (the ultrasn0w update does not include any new baseband support!). Please reboot your iPhone using the normal “slide to power off” swipe after installing ultrasn0w 1.2.2.”
Fans of jailbreaking have long known that Sundays are traditionally reserved for major iPhone jailbreaks. Following yesterday’s tweet by a team member MuscleNerd, Dev-team released a set of updated tools for an untethered jailbreak of iOS devices. The news comes a week following the release of tethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak via Pwnage Tool. Here’s what you need to know if you’re into jailbreaking plus a video right after the break…
Untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 supports iPhone 4 (GSM only, since iOS 4.3.1 isn’t available for the Verizon iPhone yet) and 3GS, third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, second-generation Apple TV (via PwnageTool only, for now) and the original iPad. New versions of Redsn0w for Windows and PwnageTool for Mac OS X are out to jailbreak those devices running iOS 4.3.1. Unlike a previous tethered jailbreak, this one doesn’t require you to tether the device to a computer each time it’s restarted. While the updated tools won’t let you jailbreak iOS 4.3 or 4.3.1 on iPad 2, a solutions is in the works and should be expected in the coming days.
Also, ultrasn0w users are advised against updating until Dev-team puts out an update to fix incompatibilities when iOS 4.3.1 is used on the older basebands supported by ultrasn0w.
Apple is taking an unusual step in the war again jailbreakers, and it’s not what you may think.
In the past, Apple has tried blocking jailbreakers by changing how iOS handles memory and has made changes to its mobile iOS in general many times. Now though they’re just trying to make life difficult even after you’ve jailbroken.
iPhoneDownloadBlog brings news that when attempting to access jailbreak App Store Cydia using an Apple Store’s WiFi, users are now finding the app loading Apple’s own website instead of the expected jailbreak goodness.
Of course this isn’t going to make the slightest bit of difference to the hardcore jailbreak community, but it’s interesting to see that Apple has taken these steps at all. By the time someone with a jailbroken iDevice access a WiFi hotspot, it’s a bit late to be trying to prove a point!
You go Apple, you sure told the jailbreakers there!
Comex has just confirmed via a series of tweets that his userland jailbreak he already showed off few days ago has already been patched by Apple in the newly released iOS 4.3.1. Well, hackers lose the war against Apple again.
Comex on his Twitter account:
yeah, uh. I can find kernel exploits, but this is ridiculous.
As noticed by @0naj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.
I try not to be paranoid, but it is really hard to explain this as anything but a leak.
It stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3, but was magically found in time for 4.3.1. well, go go @MuscleNerd and @i0n1c I guess
Interestingly, and as Comex notes, “is that my “new” kernel exploit is actually the kernel exploit used by JailbreakMe 2.0. It was never properly fixed.”
Now the only hope is from the iPhone hacker Stefan Esser who is the only one having untethered exploit right now which jailbreaks all iOS devices on iOS 4.3.1 except iPad 2. Yes, MuscleNerd and Stefan must find more exploits to jailbreak the iPad 2. [Twitter: 1,2,3,4]
