untethered

Currently iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS new bootrom, iPad, iPod 3G/4G is a tethered jailbreak. That means if you have to reboot your device, it will show a "connect to itunes" logo until you run the jailbreak software again. Musclenerd from iPhone DevTeam has announced that untethered jailbreak for iPhone iOS 4.2.1 is ready. Unfortunately this will be only for those who saved 4.2b3 SHSH keys via Cydia or tinyumbrella.

Got "backup plan" for untethered 4.2.1 JB working (video coming up). Uses mysterious 4.2b3 hashes Cydia kept for you.

"Backup plan" because hacker comex is working on a more extensible jailbreak. We'll keep you up to date with more information as it develops. For now you can watch the proof video:

Graviboard Lets Gravity Take Over Your Springboard



Graviboard is an upcoming interesting iOS jailbreak application, which will be soon available in the Cydia Store for $2.99. The application allows iDevice owners to set their icons free by abolishing the gravity that holds them on their places on the Springboard. You may drag these “floating” icons around the screen, and there still might open the apps by touching.

Jailbreak Hack Enables Landscape Springboard on iPhone



Everybody knows that the iPhone Springboard can’t be turned in landscape mode. Apple wants you to hold the device in portrait mode only. But some apps, like Mail, support the horizontal orientation. So, Cydia developers offer us the alternative solution, a new hack available in Cydia called “SBRotator” ($1.99). If you change your iPhone’s orientation, using the app, the Springboard will just follow it. But Springboard orientation change requires a proper layout change too. SBRotator puts an extra tab which enables you find the configuration that best suits your needs. Moreover, the program allows you to resize icons for landscape mode.

New Cydia v1.0.3366-1 is added to iPhoneRoot repo



iphoneroot-repo

We have already written about new Cydia version 1.0.3366-1 that was released recently. It is much faster and has many new other improvements.

The problem was that to install it users had to download deb package, install it manually in terminal, etc. It was hard. We have decided to make Cydia update easy, so we have added Cydia v1.0.3366-1 to our repository. To update Cydia just add our repository in Cydia: http://iphoneroot.com/repo/ and update.

To add repository run Cydia. Go to Manage -> Sources. Click Edit (top right corner), after that click Add (top left corner), type http://iphoneroot.com/repo/ and click Add Source button. Then click Return to Cydia and Done button. After that you can either click on iphoneroot.com select Cydia and install it or go to Changes and update it there.

Tutorial how to add iphoneroot repo with screenshots is available here.

New version of Cydia 1.0.3366-1 is ready



cydia3366

The new version 1.0.3366-1 of Cydia  is ready.

Commenting on the release Saurik said:

some of my long term performance plans are 'hitting pay dirt', and Cydia is much faster than it was before; that said, it isn't done yet: there's one more thing that I think is going to make a huge difference that isn't even in there yet but should be for the final release.

This version of Cydia is included in the latest release of RedSn0w, and can also be downloaded as deb file from here. But if you're on an iPhone 4 or other already jailbroken device, you can still install it. There are 4 different ways to do that:

HowTo bring the screen lock switch back to iPad iOS 4.2



1

In iPad OS 4.2 'Orientation Lock' was changed to 'Mute Switch'. If you want to change it back there is an app for that.

NoMute, a jailbreak only application, switches the controversial mute switch from iPad 4.2 into its former (and more useful) orientation lock. The plugin is free and you can get it from the BigBoss repository on Cydia.

no-mute

By the way you can lock screen orientation without jailbreaking through multitasking panel - just push Home button twice, slide to the left and hit lock icon.

RedSn0w 0.9.6b4: jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 released



Redsn0w-096B4

DevTeam worked hard for the last several hours and released jailbreak tool for iOS 4.2.1. It is redsn0w 0.9.6 b4.

As usual we remind all ultrasn0w unlockers please stay away from this official firmware. Wait for the ability to create custom 4.2.1 IPSWs that don’t update your baseband!

New redsn0w 0.9.6 b4 uses limera1n exploit and will successfully jailbreak all devices. The only problem is that it is a tethered jailbreak, which means you will have to plug it to a computer and rerun redsn0w on every reboot. This so called tethered or semi-tethered jailbreak. This condition applies to iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch 2G (MC model), iPod touch 3G and iPod touch 4G. Hackers are working hard to create untethered jailbreak for these devices. To use future untethered jailbreak you need to save SHSH keys for iOS 4.1 using TinyUmbrella utility or directly in Cydia.

Old devices like iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (non-MC model) can be jailbroken-untethered right now using this latest version of RedSn0w.

You can download RedSn0w 0.9.6 b4 here.
