iOS 4.1 Jailbreak: New Bootrom Exploit Found, New Jailbreak Tools to Come!

Pod2g from Chronix Dev Team has found a new bootrom exploit that could bring iOS 4.1 jailbreak tool for all iPhones and iPod Touches. Unlike a userland jailbreak (Spirit/jailbreakme for example), Apple cannot fix a jailbreak based on a bootrom exploit with a new firmware update. A bootRom based exploit can only be patched with a new hardware revision.

jailbreak ios 4.1This is what MuscleNerd and Pod2g has tweeted about the new exploit:

ios 4.1 jailbreak pod2g

ios 4.1 jailbreak musclenerd

Apple has pushed the iOS 4.1 firmware update for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G and iPod Touch 4G 3G, 2G. If you depend on jailbreak and/or unlock, you’re strongly recommended to avoid iOS 4.1 until new jailbreak and unlock tools are released.

Stay tuned at iPhoneHeat.com. We’ll keep you posted on future developments.
