Dev-Team has published a video demo of iPod Touch 4G Jailbreak with Shatter Based PwnageTool, means iOS 4.1 jailbreak release is imminent. MuscleNerd used the Shattered exploit in PwnageTool beta and has successfully jailbreak iPod Touch 4G. Video demo after the jump…
For those who don’t know, PwnageTool creates custom firmware to jailbreak iPod Touch and iPhone. PwnageTool is the best option for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G users who want to update firmware while preserving the baseband so that user may unlock iPhone using UltraSn0w unlock.
Cydia, customized preferences, root access, and all basic stuff is working fine on jailbroken iPod Touch 4G with SHAtter based PwnageTool. Dev-Team confirms that there’ll be faster tools for iPhone and iPod Touches (Greenpois0n?), however, PwnageTool will be beneficial for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G users. All these jailbreak will be based on a low level SHAtter exploit, found by ipod2g. When we talk about low-level exploit, it means Apple cannot fix it via firmware update. A new hardware revision will be required to patch the exploit.
Although PwnageTool was a useful first test of a full iPod 4G jailbreak via SHAtter, it’s really overkill compared to the faster tools being developed. Its main use in PwnageTool will be for those with iPhone4’s, to allow updates while preserving the baseband and ultrasn0w carrier unlock.
SHAtter based PwnageTool for iPod Touch 4G is not available to general public. Just like you guys, we’re eagerly waiting for the iOS 4.1 jailbreak to come out but there’s no ETA for the jailbreak tool. Hackers are working day and night to bring us the iOS 4.1 jailbreak and hopefully Greenpois0n and PwnageTool to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4G, 3GS, 3G and iPod Touch 4G, 3G and 2G will be out in a couple of weeks.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as the Greenpois0n / PwnageTool / any other legit jailbreak tool is out. Stay Tuned!
