About the IOS 4.2 Jailbreak and Unlock

With iOS 4.2 release day right around the corner, there are a few things that you need to be reminded of. Most jailbreak veterans out there probably know this by now, but I’m worried that the jailbreak novices will make mistakes they might regret sooner rather than later.

The Dev Team just posted an update on their blog about what to expect, and most importantly about what to do and what not to do. Here is a quick summary…

* As confirmed before, all devices on all iOS firmwares can be jailbroken
* The untethered status of the jailbreak depends mostly on Comex to extend it to iOS 4.2. So far, his hack works with iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2 beta 3. There is good reasons to believe we will have an untethered 4.2 jailbreak.
* There will be an unlock for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. If you own one of those devices and want to unlock, make sure you do not update to iOS 4.2 wen it comes out. Wait until we give you the green light.
* So far there is no unlock for the iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2, but apparently a few holes have been found. We’ll know more after 4.2 comes out. Again, if you rely on an unlock for your iPhone 4, do not update to iOS 4.2.

These are the main points. As usual, it’s always safe to save your SHSH blobs if you haven’t already done so.
