New Jailbreak for iOS 4, Coming Very Soon!

In a series of Tweets from comex, of the iPhone Dev Team, strong hints were dropped a new jailbreak could be coming very soon. Comex, the dev behind Spirit, has already confirmed that he was working on a new userland exploit, but there has been no release date announced. Today, comex said that he is not waiting for iOS 4.1, and everyone should get there SHSH blobs backed up, right away.

I’m not waiting for 4.1 so I hope everyone has SHSH blobs saved. :p

SHSH blobs for 4.0.1 or 4.0 are fine; AFAIK there are no substantive differences except the bars :)

To be clear: if I don’t run into problems, it will work on 4.0 or 4.0.1.  No need to update to 4.0.1.  SHSH blobs for either are fine.

It is not known if this will simply be an update to Spirit, or if the new jailbreak will have a brand new name. This tool will jailbreak iOS 4 and 4.0.1 for sure, but no mention has been made of iOS 3.2.1 (iPad). I’m guessing it will work across all devices, just like Spirit did. This includes all new bootrom devices, as well!

We’ll keep you posted! rorypiper

    You will need those files in case you update your fw version and want to downgrade it back to 4.0 or 4.0.1, without them you will not be able to downgrade your idevice and you will have to wait until a jailbreak for that version comes out

    oh right thanks you, so you dont actually need them its just alot better to have them backed up ? thanks again
