Geohot showed us a video demo of untethered jailbreak for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad during the same time period when the iPhone’s SMS database was hacked by two amazing geniuses at Pwn2Own hacking contest. The hack really spread hope in masses that we can use the same technique back from iPhone OS 1.x days to jailbreak our iPhone/iPod touch and iPad.
And now a hacker by the name of “comex” has managed to bring first userland (browser based) untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3.1.3 on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. This jailbreak feat has also been confirmed by a member of iPhone Dev-Team on Twitter.
Apple, like always does what it can to close all the holes in it’s OS so people don’t attempt such feats. The upcoming iPhone OS 3.1.4 or iPhone 3.2 will for sure disable and keep us from using the userland hack to jailbreak our iPhone. Well anyways, here’s a demo video showing the untethered jailbreak in action.
By the way, there’s no ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) given on when the userland jailbreak would be released. So stay tuned as we’ll keep you posted whenever it is released.
