iOS 4.2 Jailbreak via Sn0wbreeze to come out on or near release date
Those who don’t know, Sn0wbreeze allows users to create custom iOS 4.x firmware so that they can update and jailbreak their iPhone and iPod Touch with iOS 4.x. Sn0wbreeze allows users to preserve the baseband so that it does not get updated while updating your iPhone with the custom iOS 4.x firmware. This is important for iPhone unlockers as 05.14 baseband that comes bundled with iOS 4.x cannot been unlocked.
Sn0wbreeze works on same exploit that was discovered by GeoHot, and is also used by all current jailbreak tools – PwnageTool, Limera1n and GreenPois0n. Check out the 2 screenshots below shared by iH8sn0w showing a jailbroken iPad iOS 4.2 beta 3 running the MobileTerminal app.
iOS 4.2 will be out in November as a universal firmware update for all iDevices (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad). Get ready to jailbreak iPad iOS 4.2 as soon as it’s out as many hackers are already working on iOS 4.2 jailbreak because of the GeoHot’s bootrom exploit “pwned4life.” which will jailbreak all current idevices.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as iOS 4.2 and the jailbreak for iOS 4.2 via Sn0wbreeze is out(we will also post an updated tutorial on how to use the new sn0wbreeze). As usual, if you aren’t a developer and you want to keep your jailbreak / unlock, DO NOT use this firmware. Keep in mind to backup your SHSH blobs.
