[Updated] iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Tool Coming Soon, Exploit Found

With today’s release of iOS 4.1, jailbreakers have been warned repeatedly (to the point where if you update, it’s your own fault!) to NOT update via iTunes. This game of ‘cat and mouse’ has been ongoing since the iPhone was first released. Let the games continue, right?

For those who have invested in SBSettings, MyWi, My3G, and other tweaks, it’s hard to go back to a ‘stock’ iPhone. Hence, that’s why it’s worth the wait to hear from the Dev Team.

MuscleNerd Sends an Important “Discovery” Update via Twitter

It looks like an extremely important exploit has been discovered by @pod2g, as described by @musclenerd on twitter:

Crazy timing that @pod2g got latest exploit just as 4.1 went public (lots of work left…keep away from 4.1 for now!)

Looks like the iOS 4.1 jailbreak is going to come sooner than expected–well done guys!

Update 1– Sept.9/10: It looks like more progress has been made towards an iOS 4.1 jailbreak. Musclenerd tweeted the following yesterday:

That latest exploit from @pod2gconfirmed to work beyond iPhone4…also on at least iPad and yesterday’s iPod4G too 🙂

In a nutshell, this current exploit seems to work on all current iDevices and cannot be blocked unless Apple alters production and inserts new bootrom hardware into devices. Looks like this ‘cat and mouse’ game is heating up, once again!
