MuscleNerd confirms via Twitter that they have figured out a way to extend PwnageTool support to iOS 4.2 and beyond, with the help of Limera1n and Comex’s hack, for all A4 based devices which include iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad. It will be an untethered jailbreak.
This is what MuscleNerd Tweeted:
Think we’ve figured out a way to extend PwnageTool + limera1n + @comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares 🙂
Limera1n and Greenpois0n jailbreaks (untethered) for iOS 4.1 are loaded with GeoHot’s bootrom exploit + Comex’s userland hack which “pwn for life” the iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G and iPad. The exploit itself can only tether jailbreak, it’s Comex’s userland hack which makes it untethered for all devices. It was being said that as soon as Apple pushes a new firmware update, the Comex’s userland hack will be patched thus Limera1n and Greepois0n will become tethered jailbreak for future firmwares.
But now, MuscleNerd confirms that after playing with PwnageTool + Limera1n + Comex’s hack, their team has figured out a way to extend untethered jailbreaks to iOS 4.2 and beyond for all A4 processor based devices (iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G, and iPad).
This is indeed a great news because it would mean that all A4 processor based devices (iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G, and iPad) will get untethered jailbreak treatment for life. PwnageTool for iOS 4.1 is expected this Sunday.
Thanks to the legendary Dev-Team for their hard work and quality jailbreak and unlock tools. We will keep you posted as soon as more information is available.
