Well, we already knew iPhone 4 was jailbroken with a new exploit found by comex, the guy who brought us the Spirit jailbreak, for iOS 3.1.3. What we didn’t know for sure, is if they were going to release it or not. In a recent post from iPhone Dev Team member, Musclenerd, we have learned that there is definitely a release coming soon.
jailbreak for all devices at 4.0 is already handled by upcoming @comex release so, good time for iphone4 unlock stuff
It is still unclear if this will simply be an update to Spirit, or a new tool all together, but we do know that it will use another userland exploit, so the jailbreak process will probably be a simple one button solution. There is no release date for this new tool. The iPhone Dev Team tends to not give release dates, in case they hit a snag, and can’t release on time. Please don’t bother them about it. We’ll get it when they’re good and ready.
Apple recently announced an update to iOS4 that will be released in the coming weeks, so they will probably wait to make sure it is still compatible.
