4.2 Delayed

Nov 13, 2010 by

Contrary to rumours slating the release for Apple’s iOS 4.2 firmware for iPads, iPhones and iPods for Friday, November the 12th, the release of this major firmware version was delayed due to last minute issues with WiFi.

Beta testers of the latest 4.2 GM reported issues with the WiFi on the iPad and in rare cases, the iPhone. This being a big issue, the firmware was not released on the purported date and has been delayed. According to sources, it may be weeks before the bug is fixed. All this comes after a string of updates from Apple (Mac OS X 10.6.5, and iTunes 10.1 adding support for iOS 4.2). Also according to people who’ve used the GM, it is said that it patches comex’s userland exploit keeping the Limera1n exploit untethered. With developments this big, we’ll notify you of new changes in this strange situation.
