Tethered iOS 4 jailbreak for iPhone 3GS with new bootrom



iH8Sn0w has successfully performed a tethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS with new firmware  iOS 4 and the new bootrom. Unfortunately this jailbreak requires users to have 3.1.2 SHSH blobs saved.

Alright... If anyone has their 3.1.2 SHSH blobs, NOT 3.1.3. Then I'll see if I can produce a tool that will do this job...

Here is a video demo posted by AKinGdom1:

The utility will be available soon. Might be as soon as tomorrow.

RedSn0w 0.9.5b5-5: iOS 4 jailbreak updated



DevTeam updated iOS 4 jailbreak utility redsn0w to version 0.9.5b5-5. That should fix any APN or MMS issues that users were seeing. It’s safe to re-run it on an already jailbroken iPhone without restoring. Just deselect "Install Cydia" if you do that.

Supported devices are still only iPhone3G and iPod Touch 2G (not MC)

You can download the latest version here.

Congratulations to all iPhone users. iPhone 4 has been successfully jailbroken. iPhone hackers @planetbeing and @chpwn has managed to get root access on the device using @comex’s userland jailbreak method.
