iOS 4.2 features: Volume slider widget for iPhone and iPod touch

iOS 4.2 GM brings a volume slider widget to the iPhone and iPod touch, just like beta 1 did for iPad. Since iPhone and iPod touch have a no landscape view for home screen, and much narrower screen real estate in general, the volume slider isn't next to the other widgets like it is on iPad, and there's no brightness slider to go with it, but here's what you do get:

Jailbreak on iOS 4.2 will be untethered. Possible delay due to Cydia compatibility.

Comex has announced on his Twitter feed that iOS 4.2 will be an untethered jailbreak. While current devices can be exploited and jailbroken for their lifespan without the possibility of a patch, the ability of the jailbreak being untethered was still at issue.

An untethered jailbreak differs from a tethered jailbreak in that a tethered jailbreak must be connected with a computer after each and every reboot of the device. Comex has developed userland exploits for Star, Limera1n, and Greenpois0n, keeping them all untethered.

iOS 4.2 GM for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad released to developers

Now we know why Apple didn't release an updated iOS 4.2 beta for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad last week -- they just released the GM (Gold Master) for developers. This is the typically the final version given to developers ahead of time so they can test it on their apps and make sure everything is working before the release goes public.

No word yet on what if any changes or new features might have snuck into this iOS 4.2 build, but if you come across any let us know in comments or drop us a line.

Check out our complete iOS 4.2 beta walkthrough for the features so far.

UPDATE: AirPlay is still audio-only to Apple TV. Maybe iOS 4.2 for Apple TV will be required to enable that? There's a new AirPlay icon, however, and the multitasking dock has even more functionality than before. Pics after the break!

iOS 4.2 for iPad already Jailbroken

It looks like hackers have had their hands on the iOS 4.2 beta 3 for iPad long enough to jailbreak it. Last night, well-known iOS hacker @iH8sn0w tweeted a picture of an iPad running MobileTerminal, a jailbreak app giving the user full access to the terminal command line interface. From iH8sn0w:

Yay! iPad 4.2 b3 jailbroken -- Weird that MobileTerminal runs in simulator

Like clockwork Apple has released iOS 4.2 beta 3 for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad for developers, along with the requisite SDK and iTunes 10.1 beta 2.

As always, this is pre-release software meant for developers to test their applications and Apple warns it might prove too buggy or unstable for daily use on your main device. If you don't need it, wait for the general release.
