Blobs are fetched, IPSWs Downloaded, iDevices Backed Up! Now the wait for the latest public jailbreak continues. The latest team includes @pimskeks, @planetbeing, @pod2g, and of course @MuscleNerd. Supposed to drop early tomorrow, but some suspected (myself included) that it might get released on “Funday.”
This jailbreak will support EVERY iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad, or iPad Mini running iOS 6.0-6.1. No doubt that atv2 support will come quickly after. No news yet about atv3.
Despite numerous problems and unrelenting deadlines @comex has come through yet again with another fantastic jailbreak! When an unfinished beta of the latest iPad2 jailbreak was leaked, we all new that the window for this exploit was rapidly closing. Apple simply cannot allow userland exploits to exist (for obvious reasons). I am delighted that all the iPhone-dev guys got their act together and released. What are you waiting for JailbreakMe.com.
Or should i say toys? Pwnage Tool is added to greenpois0n and limera1n. So now anyone can update their iOS devise without updating the baseband. Apple TV 2 even added to it’s mighty pwnage!
Ever since @pod2g discovered a new bootrom exploit we’ve all been patiently waiting for an update to our favorite tools. Well, @MuscleNerd announced today that a beta of PwnageTool has already been developed to utilize the exploit. @chronicdevteam has tools in the works as well. Though i anxiously await the release of @greenpois0n, it is PwnageTool that will allow me to update my iPhone4 without endangering my baseband and killing my unlock.
What does this mean to you? well, i’ll tell you since you asked. It means that
EVERY iOS devise ALL A4 devices (iPhone 4, Tough 4g, iPad, Apple TV 2) will be jailbreakable regardless of iOS version. This is good news for anyone who “accidentally” updated or who purchased their device after apple fixed the jailbreakme.com exploit. Now although this exploit cannot be fixed with an iOS update, it is still very important to back up your shsh blobs to ensure that you can utilize the tools that all these guys have worked so hard on. Don’t get too excited. No new baseband exploit has yet been announced, so all you unlockers running 4.0.2 or greater are still doomed. lets hope they’re sitting on one for 4.2 or it’s going to be a cold and lonely winter.
New iOS versions today. as usual, stay away if you like unlocks. I thought I’d have more time to back up my blobs (still waiting for delivery). I hope this doesn’t effect my jailbreakability. I’d hate to have a new phone that I can’t use due to software limitations.
@comex reports that there is no significant change in 4.0.1 and nothing exploit, jailbreak, or unlock related was effected.
i’ve been so busy that i’ve scarcely had time to mention that Apple released it’s new OS as well as the long awaited iphone 4 (just a few hours away). got yours yet? haven’t got hands on the new devise yet, but i finally installed 4 on my 3gs. If you’ve been waiting to upgrade because you unlock, or if you lost your unlock because of “accidentally” upgrading then you are in luck. Unless your a new bootlrom 3GS or you didn’t back up your blobs, you are most certainly stoked right now. 3G iphone and Touch 2g are upgradable, jailbreakable, and unlockable. the new base band (and all previous) have been unlocked. great work by @iphone_dev. Touch 3g users and new bootrom 3gs users are doomed for the moment, so be careful about “accidentally” upgrading. for now. once the new device gets in the right hands, it’s only a matter of time. and if you haven’t learned by now, BACK UP YOUR BLOBS!
download it now! developers are still catching up, so not everything is compatible with 3.2.
Spirit, the new jailbreak for ALL the latest apple toys is about to be released! BACKUP your blobs! expect an apple update immediately following the release! Spirit could be released as soon as tomorrow! To summarize, Spirit is an untethered jailbreak for all iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads.
you only need to backup your blobs if you have one of the newest devices like iPhone 3gs, the Touch 3gen, and any iPad. If you’ve been avoiding a jailbreak, you can use Umbrella to backup the pertinent info without modifying the device. I’ll write up a howto when I get a sec, but there are plenty out there.
iPhone 3gs and Touch 3g users should have their shsh blobs backed up by now! Even if you are not jailbroken!
the easiest way is with umbrella. the hardest part is to put your phone in restore mode and plug it into a computer to get it’s unique id. after that, you reboot your phone normally and put it away. it is never modified. Umbrella is run on a computer and it requires that unique id. the data is actually retrieved directly from apple’s servers and may differ in version from the software on your devise. you can even cache your blobs on saurik’s server right form umbrella without ever violating your apple warrantee or modifying your devise in any way.
overview of the process and reasons:
official umbrella site:
@geohot did it again! in a video that meets @Musclenerd strict standards. This works with the newest 3gs as well as all iPod Touches we’ve seen thus far. no release date yet, but we’d expect it after the upcoming hardware and software updates. 3.2 or 4.0? iPad or new iPhone. we’ll just have to wait and see.
this may mean that a day 1 iPad jailbreak is possible!
closer inspection of the spirit exploit, not a bootrom exploit. The title was wrong. Still no 359.3.2 exploit.
finally goes down with the release of limera1n. (limera1n-on-our-parade)
