GeoHot May Have an Untethered Jailbreak Exploit for iOS 4.2.1

From a tweet by MuscleNerd, it looks like GeoHot may surprise us once again because he has an untethered jailbreak exploit for iOS 4.2.1. Before that GeoHot made a surprise come back and released Limera1n jailbreak for iOS 4.1.

ipodguy79 Tweeted: @sherif_hashim @MuscleNerd @iphone_dev @chpwn keep up with your soap opera and geo will be slapping another reality check on you
MuscleNerd responded: I hear geohot does have an untether actually! Though not for all devices.

In such a painful time of RedSn0w betas, it would sure be nice to have any other untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1. Share your thoughts in the comments section below. [via iphonedownloadblog]

I already mention this in my comment a couple of days ago. He is the best. New one will be called Rubyra1n and for info domain rubyra1n.com is already registrated on his name. So that is little bit more than rumors.
For those who don’t like him, all jailbreak tools uses his limera code. Go for it George.

It would surely be nice to have an iPhone 4.1/4.2.1 unlock in the mix of these jailbreak tools, but it’s good to see the competition and skills of these guys.

I’m referring to iPhone 4, that is

I believe majority need unlock new baseband more than jailbreak at this point.

true story

thats coz people are stupid and update without thinking and then loose their unlock.

SupremeMel January 7, 2011, 12:20 am

Yes some people should not have updated just for the sake of a few changes, but some people bought their phones with the latest software so they are stuck & need the unlock. Besides there are so many scams when trying to pay for an unlock.

there’s no way to unlock iphone4 with 03.10? is it impossible to downgrade the baseband and unlock it?
