Podcast with Comex, Planetbeing, Chpwn and iH8sn0w – Comex said iPhone 4, iOS 4.x Jailbreak is “Pretty Close to Done”
I was just listening to “This Week in iPhone Podcast” interview which involved the very popular iPhone Devs like Comex, Planetbeing, Chpwn and iH8sn0w who are working on jailbreak and unlock, there was this question which the hosts asked the devs about when is the iPhone 4 and iOS 4.x jailbreak is expected to be out.
Specific release date for the new Jailbreak was not given, but they did say that jailbreak is “pretty close to be done”.
They are now waiting for Jay Freeman a.k.a Saurik (creator of Cydia) to fix couple of loose ends before it is released. Another question was asked about the iPhone 4 unlock and the answer was that it is 100 percent done and is waiting for jailbreak to be released.
Here are the answers…
Question: When is the iPhone 4 Jailbreak and Unlock is going to be released?
Comex: You will have to ask Saurik if he’s done with that bootstrap yet. Like I hate to say this because people will be complaining, but it is pretty close to done.
PlanetBeing: Unlock is done. Just waiting for the jailbreak to be released.
Chpwn: The jailbreak definitely needs a lot of testing before it is released, to make sure it works on everybody’s phone, and that there are no issues like Spirit had where it deleted all of your photos in the first few days of the release.
You can listen to the whole interview on iTuens here, or just skip to 43:45 to hear the part where this question was asked.
