“Well, that didn’t take long”, is something I have found myself saying after each iPhone software and hardware release, for the past year or so. It seems the current iPhone hackers know right where to look, when trying to find new exploits in the latest firmware and hardware.
comex, of theÂ The iPhone Dev Team, and creator of the Spirit jailbreak, has found another userland exploit in iOS 4. Just like Spirit, this could be used to jailbreak all devices on iOS 4, including iPhone 4!!Â planetbeing, andÂ musclenerd are reporting on Twitter, about the new exploit:
Planetbeing: Think I’m the first one I know about to get a root shell (and SSH) on iPhone 4, using poor @comex’s code (since he has no iPhone 4).
Musclenerd: Congrats to @comex for another userland JB http://is.gd/d5N6I <– hi-res Cydia via @planetbeing & @chpwn iPhone4s
This is the first Cydia screen shot from an iPhone 4! 640 x 960 resolution!
This is huge news! This will most likely come as an update to the current Spirit jailbreak tool, but we don’t have confirmation on that. There is no release date yet, but we’ll keep you updated.
