No New iOS 4 Jailbreak Yet, But Devs Still Working Hard

As we heard last week, the iPhone Dev Team have nailed the the iPhone 4 unlock, and are saying they will have it ready to go with the new jailbreak for iOS 4, that comex has been working on.

There has never been an official release date for the new jailbreak, but from some fake Twitter accounts, and from some comments on certain blogs, it was believed that the new jailbreak would be released this weekend. Well, this is false information, and is not the case. The new jailbreak is not coming out this weekend. This was confirmed by Musclenerd, on Twitter:

Not to make it a daily thing, but since somehow people thought it would be today: the new JB+unlock won’t be out today

A few members of the iPhone Dev Team have been very public in saying the new jailbreak isn’t finished yet and is not ready for release. Jay Freeman (saurik) has gone as far as being interviewed by Make it Work, and explaining what is holding up the new jailbreak, on video.

Apparently, the issue is with Apple’s signature process, and the way Apple can tell which iDevice it’s connecting to. This is causing issues in the App Store and with FaceTime, among others. The iPhone Dev Team are not about to release a sub-par jailbreak tool, so we just have to wait a bit longer.

For legit updates on the release of the new, (yet to be named), jailbreak tool, you should check out these links:

    I've got an article that “Jailbreak/unlock iPhone 3GS for iOS 4 on Mac“, which is clear that they will install unapproved, third-party applications after Jailbreak it. But i want to know what's mean of “iOS 4 Jailbreak”.

    they better hurry up tho, but i guess they are taking time on it so our phones dont crash, but we have been waiting an awful long time !

    Not suprise at all. I think Apple made their job to make difficult future jailbreak. Dev Team guys are making a great job anayway, and I am confident they will succeed this next step. Don<t give up guys, and thanks again for everything you are doing. It is easier to be impatient than working on this complexe softwares to open our Iphone. Yes, we would like to have it fastest as possible, but it is better to wait and have a great product from guys who do their possible. Their past is the best proof that we we will be able to have something great …. Don't give up guys and thanks again !
