Sn0wbreeze 2.6.1 brings untethered Jailbreak to Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2.7

ih8sn0w has just released sn0wbreeze 2.6.1, an untethered Jailbreak for the Verizon iPhone 4 on the latest iOS 4.2.7 firmware.

I originally ordered a Verizon iPhone 4 for my upcoming SHSH blobs dumper. Then I + many others on twitter realized that an untether was not available for 4.2.7. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been sick and didn’t do much, but today I was finally able to get the strength to work on this Verizon untether. Since i0n1c’s payload is not easily reversible, I went to previous exploits. After trying, pod2g’s + posixninja’s kernel exploit for 4.2.x is STILL in 4.2.7! After some more work, I managed to get this thing untethered. So, this new release includes that new payload to untether + jailbreak 4.2.7.

So if you’re a Verizon iPhone 4 user on the latest 4.2.7 firmware, you can now jailbreak untethered thanks to ih8sn0w. If you go ahead and use this, let us know how it works out in the comments! If you need any help, head over to our jailbreak forum!
