Breaking News: iPhone 4 Already Jailbroken
Comex, developer of popular jailbreaking tool, Spirit jailbreak for iPhone OS 3.1.3, iPhone OS 3.1.2 has discovered another userland jailbreak in iOS 4 similar to the one used in Spirit jailbreak.
iPhone hacking experts planetbeing, chpwn and MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team have managed to get root access on iPhone 4 using comex’s userland jailbreak.
planetbeing was the first to announce the breaking news on Twitter:
Think I’m the first one I know about to get a root shell (and SSH) on iPhone 4, using poor @comex’s code (since he has no iPhone 4)
MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team has confirmed the news and has followed it up with a screenshot of Cydia running on iPhone 4:
Congrats to @comex for another userland JB http://is.gd/d5N6I <– hi-res Cydia via @planetbeing & @chpwn iPhone4s
However, this does not mean that iPhone 4 can also be unlocked. iPhone 4 comes with a new baseband, which will require Ultrasn0w to be completely rewritten to work on iPhone 4.
Thanks Jasmart for the tip!
