Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 May Not Be Ready For Christmas Release, Comex Will Miss His Deadline
Hey guys, I have some bad news for all of you (and Me), Initially it was expected for the untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak to be released somewhere around the Christmas Eve. But if this latest tweet by Comex is anything to go by, we may not see an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 by this Christmas.
Comex has tweeted saying that he may not be able to complete his untethering of the current jailbreak by Christmas.
I think I’m going to miss my Christmas deadline…
On Tuesday the iPhone Dev-Team announced that their ‘backup plan’ untethered jailbreak is nearly ready and will not require a restore of your device.
Comex’s untether is more extensible and should not require access to the developer only 4.2b3 IPSW; thus, it’s suggested that users wait for his.
Comex is said to have a more efficient userland-based untethered jailbreak method for iOS 4.2.1. This untethered solution will almost certainly be applicable to all current iOS 4.2.1 devices, including the new A4-based ones which includes iPhone 4, iPad, Apple TV 2G and iPod touch 4G.
