Chronic Dev Team still working on an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak

Chronic Dev Team member @pod2g sent out a tweet stating they are all still actively working on an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. After Comex's departure to Apple a lot of the jailbreak community is wondering how it affects future development of jailbreak tools. Even though Comex played a huge part in the jailbreak scene there will always be many others willing to step in and fill his shoes. The cat and mouse game will always continue.

Jailbreak developer comex to intern at Apple

Jailbreak developer Nicholas Allegra, better known as comex and best known for userland exploits that allowed untethered Jailbreaks, and the Jailbreakme.com web-based Jailbreak, has announced on Twitter that's he'll be taking an internship at Apple this fall.

It's been really, really fun, but it's also been a while and I've been getting bored. 3 hours ago

So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple.

iPad 2 Jailbreak beta leaked, best to stay away

Last night the iPad 2 Jailbreak that Comex has been working on for JailbreakMe.com was leaked online by a beta tester, and this morning it's all over the web in post and video form. And we're not going anywhere near it.

We've waited this long for an iPad 2 Jailbreak, we might as well wait the last few days for a well tested, verified, proper release version. Hacking iPad 2 was most likely non-trivial for Comex, and messing around with leaked betas seems needlessly risky, unless you have more time, spare iPad 2s, and urges to tinker than you know what to do with.

JailbreakMe.com updated with cryptic image.

JailbreakMe.com has been updated with an image, that could suggest a new PDF exploit.

JailbreakMe.com is famous for offering a simple way to jailbreak by using an exploit directly from within Mobile Safari without having to plug the iPhone/iPad into a computer. JailbreakMe developer, @Comex, has updated the site with a teaser for another potential exploit in iOS. According to Comex's Twitter, the image is of Mt. Snow ski slope with a sign that shows a 'black diamond' (which is a skiing symbol for 'advanced') and the word 'PDF'.

Is this for a long-awaited iPad 2 jailbreak? Or has a new exploit been found in iOS 5?

State of the iPhone iOS 4.3 Jailbreak

I've been receiving a lot of questions about the state of current jailbreaks, especially when it comes to the just released iOS 4.3 beta and the Verizon iPhone (demo models ran iOS 4.2.5). The jailbreak community is working on a jailbreak but they have stated it will not come out as long as iOS 4.3 is in beta. There's a good reason for this. Most jailbreakers already realize it's a cat and mouse game with Apple.

If one of the dev teams has an exploit, they don't want to burn it. If they release it now, Apple can patch it before the final release and it's of use to no one. Unlocker @MuscleNerd isn't planning on releasing an unlock until iOS 4.3 is official, and for good reason. Here's what he has to say -

Official iPhone unlock statement: no unlock will be released until after 4.2.5 or official 4.3 (whichever is last) is out

I can't imagine a general jailbreak tool being any different. No point burning exploits for no good reason. So on that front, just be patient. And as always, don't upgrade right away if you plan on jailbreaking.

In the mean time, you can make sure you save your SHSH blobs if you're already jailbroken. You can also read through our jailbreak starter's guide if you're curious but new to the jailbreak scene.

Click through for a current list of firmwares and what your jailbreak options are under each firmware. We've also got some links handy after the break to walkthroughs explaining each method.

SHAtter bootrom exploit possibly leaked, what it means for jailbreakers

The SHAtter exploit found by pod2g appears to have been leaked. Who leaked it and for what reason is still unclear. What is clear is that Apple will certainly find a way to patch the hardware if it did in fact leak. When Limera1n was released, it kept the SHAtter bootrom exploit safe for future jailbreaks as it would require a complete hardware revision to be done by Apple.

SHAtter basically used a hardware exploit in the A4 series of devices (iPhone 4, iPad, AppleTV 2nd generation, and iPod Touch 4G). You can bet Apple will make a hardware revision to patch SHAtter. It seems there is some drama between some members of the jailbreak community over who actually "leaked" the SHAtter exploit.

@P0isixninja of the Chronic Dev Team is pointing a blame finger to @Musclenerd. As Musclenerd concentrates on unlocks, it seems unreasonable to think he'd leak an exploit he would need in order to create an unlock. Click through for a response to the drama from @comex, who claims if it doesn't stop, he'll just e-mail the exploit directly to Apple. Not good news for the jailbreak community.
