Well some more bad news for early adaptors of iPad 2 who wants to jailbreak their shiny new device. After the confirmation of Limera1n being patched in iPad 2’s bootrom, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team has now confirmed that early testing of SHAtter shows that it has also been patched by Apple in iPad 2.
Moments ago, Apple seeded iOS 4.2.6 to public for Verizon’s CDMA iPhone 4 ahead of its launch date, that is February 10th, 2011.
We have just been tipped off about the possible name for the next jailbreak by Geohot, called Rubyra1n. The domain Rubyra1n.com was registered by the iPhone hacker named George Hotz (aka geohot) on 27th March 2010.
Apple today has released iOS 4.2.1 GM for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G, iPad and iPod touches. This build which is currently available to developers only can be jailbroken using the current version 0.9.6b2 of Redsn0w. For those of you who don’t know, Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 is based on Geohot’s Limera1n exploit which can pwn all iOS devices for life.
iOS 4.2, at least from what information we have so far, is slated for release this Friday and it’s going to be a significant update for iPad (not so much for iPhone / iPod touch, though). And of course, there’s going to be a jailbreak to accompany the new iOS version. Here’s all you need to know.

Besides, this new version also offers custom boot land recovery logos for the older devices like iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) iPod touch 2G (Non MC), and iPhone 3G, along with the ability to let Windows users restore to a custom IPSW files that are cooked using PwnageTool for Mac.
