What You Need To Know For 4.2

Nov 10, 2010 by

By all accounts, we’re within a few days of Apple’s official public release of iOS 4.2. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Thanks to geohot’s Limera1n exploit, the Dev Team’s pwnage2 exploit and @pod2g’s iPod 2G MC exploit, all devices on all iOS firmware versions can be jailbroken.
  • The untetheredness of the latest firmwares and devices depends on @comex‘s hacks. His hacks only go to 4.1 and 4.2 beta 3. He’s working on a way to extend it to 4.2 and beyond. Just wait for him to get it working.
  • iPhone 3G and 3GS unlockers will be covered by the latest Ultrasn0w.
  • Stay away from all iOS upgrades unless the Dev Team gives you the go ahead.
  • iPhone 4 unlockers are covered as well. @sherif_hashim has found some very useful things that could lead to an unlock after the 4.2 release.
