SHAtter Jailbreak for ALL Apple iDevices is Growing and will become reality soon enough
Just a quick little heads-up chronic-dev, the guys behind the SHAtter Jailbreak just added a new update in the official blog, confirmed that they are making steady progress with the new jailbreak tool, also they have been much asked about the release date but till now they still can”t give an estimate for this date.
SHAttered Jailbreak solution will Jailbreak all existing devices forever as it’s a bootrombased jailbreak which acts on the hardware of the device.
Unfortunately, there’s a semi-confirm floating on the web today. p0sixninja may be sending a message to tell people that SHAtter is a tethered jailbreak (i.e. you will be required to connect your iOS device to your computer on every reboot).
Although we still can’t give any details of the exploit(s) that need to be used, I figured I’d make an update here to just let you guys know that we are still working hard on the jailbreak and making steady progress.
Please keep in mind that even though we have had the method for awhile, there was a certain very key element that we (or rather, pod2g the great) only got working a few days ago, so it’s not like we have this packaged up and we are just sitting on it.
It is being actively worked on as I type this (the loader, the payload itself, the easy to use computer-side tools, the payload, the patches, etc. Just hang tight, it will definitely be worth it.
Just so you know the new SHAtter Jailbreak solution will jailbreak all iOS devices for ever, so we have to wait and see, keep tuned for immediate updates. Another thing to remember and keep in mind is the fact that this Jailbreak will be TETHERED so you will have to re-jailbreak your device everytime you turn it OFF or if the battery dies on it.
THIS SUCKS but hopefully there will be another solution like Spirit or JailbreakMe which will be UNTETHERED.
