After releasing PwnageTool 4.1.1 yesterday, the iPhone Dev Team today has silently updated PwnageTool to 4.1.2 to fix jailbreaking issues for OS X 1.5.x Leopard users. Again, as far as the jailbreak, compatibility and the exploit is concerned, this release offers nothing new except for this bug fix.
PwnageTool 4.1 has been released. You can use it to cook custom firmware files without the upgraded (2.10.4 / 05.14.02) baseband for iPhone 4, 3GS and iPhone 3G running on iOS 4.1 so that you can unlock it using the existing version of Ultrasn0w. This version of PwnageTool also supports hacktivation.
The iPhone Dev Team has finally teased us with a screenshot of the upcoming PwnageTool 4.1 for all iOS devices. This new version of PwnageTool is based on Geohot’s Limera1n bootrom exploit which will allow us to restore custom cooked firmwares (without the upgraded 05.14.04 / 2.10.4 basebands) on almost all the current iOS devices, including: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 3G, Apple TV, iPad and iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G. This will enable all iPhone users to unlock using the current version of Ultrasn0w so that they can use the phone on any carrier they like!
The following step by step instructions are going to help you jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPod touch 4G / 3G using GreenPois0n on Mac OS X. Support for Apple TV and iPod touch 2G will be added soon.
Mac version of Limera1n is now available for download. Even though the instructions for Mac are exactly the same as the one for Windows, I thought I would do the guide again for our Mac users who come here, searching for the Mac version of the instructions.
The new all iOS device jailbreak Limera1n is now available for download. It can jailbreak iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G on iOS 4.0 - 4.1 and beyond. Following instructions will help you jailbreak iPad on iOS 3.2.2.
A new useful add-on which goes by the name of “Home Page in Safari” has been released on Cydia which allows jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users to set their favorite website as home page in Mobile Safari browser. This could specially come in handy on the larger, more spacious screen of iPad !
Next week, Apple will roll-out the new iOS 4.1 firmware for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G, iPad and iPod touch. This new firmware like iOS 4.0.2 will require another exploit for jailbreak as the loophole which was found in iOS 4.0.1 was quickly fixed by Apple in iOS 4.0.2. Comex will be on it once Apple releases the firmware to public early next week.
We have been constantly getting reports from our readers, both by email and in comments about JailbreakMe.com being down for them. If you are unable to access JailbreakMe.com on any if your iOS device, try out the following fixes. One of these will hopefully fix the problem for you so that you can jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
iOS 3.2.2 has been released to patch the PDF exploit used by JailbreakMe. If you love your jailbroken iPad on iOS 3.2.1 and want to keep the jailbreak, DO NOT update to this new firmware yet or you’ll lose the jailbreak because there is currently no tool available yet which can jailbreak iPad, iPhone and iPod touches on their respective new firmwares.
