Apple has now released the iOS 4.0.2 update (3.2.2 for iPad) that plugs the security hole found by JailbreakMe, a web based tool that enables untethered jailbreak via Mobile Safari. If you’re worried about vulnerability, by all means install the update. If however, you rely on your Jailbreak for Facetime over 3G, flash via Frash and of course, unlocking, then it’d be wise to hold off for the time being.[9to5mac via iphonedownloadblog]
Many of you may already have an iPhone 4, but there’s bound to be a number of users out there who opted not to purchase the phone outright as a factory unlocked model. If this is the case and you wish to use your iPhone 4 on another carrier (great for overseas travels – simply buy a local pay-as-you-go sim card to avoid exuberant roaming charges), you may now do so as the unlocking tool, Ultrasn0w, has just been updated to support the iPhone 4.
Version 1.0-1 of ultrasn0w works for:
- iPhone4 baseband 01.59
- 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04
Needless to say, you must have a jailbroken iPhone to install ultrasn0w, but thanks to Comex, jailbreaking is now as easy as visiting JailBreakMe.com on your mobile safari. Once the process is complete, all that needs to be done is to install ultrasn0w via Cydia. If you can’t find the tool under search, you can manually add the repo: repo666.ultrasn0w.com. Take a look at the step-by-step video from youtuber @AdamFromYT after the break.
The prolific Dev Team, or more specifically, Comex, have done it again, releasing the sequel to one of the oldest Jailbreaks for the iDevice. Veteran jailbreakers will remember an early iPhone OS 1.1.1 Safari exploit that allowed users to jailbreak their devices with the minimal toolbox of Mobile Safari and a Wifi connection. About two and a half years have passed since the days of iPhone OS 1.1.1 and predictably, history has repeated itself. Here’s to 2010 and the return of the untethered jailbreak! Of course, this news comes on the cusp of a new ruling in the USA that legalises jailbreaking.
I will post a detailed walkthrough of the new jailbreak very soon, but for those who don’t want to wait, make sure to backup your iDevice and then head over to JailbreakMe.com to experience a new iDevice! Veteran jailbreakers, this really is a momentous occasion!
