4.2 due soon. Hold off

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak, News

4.2 is out. Most of you should hold off on the update for now. If you have some bug you are hoping is fixed by 4.2, it’s not.

Worse yet, while limera1n and greenpois0n allow for 4.2 to be jailbroken, in most cases this is a tethered jailbreak. That means if you have to reboot your device, it shows a “connect to itunes” logo until you run the jailbreak software again.  I suggest not updating until something changes and your device is in the untethered jailbreak list (once tools are out):

iphone3g - will run 4.2 untethered. Redsn0w or such will be updated
iphone 3gs – old bootrom will run 4.2 untethered if done via pwnage tool while updating from 4.1. Otherwise it will be tethered.
iPhone 4 – tethered
iPod 2g – 4.2 untethered.
ipod 3g and newer – tethered
iPad – tethered.

Tethered jailbreak isn’t that bad for ipads and ipods. But if something happens and your iphone reboots while you’re away from your computer, you cant use the device until you get home and run something on your computer again.  The community is working on a solution to this to either make the jailbreak untethered or at least semi-tethered. Semi-tethered means the device will at least reboot, but unjailbroken while on the road until you return to your computer.

    I’m not even sure I will upgrade to 4.2 anyway. The new features don’t seem suited for me. The lockscreen emergency call bug is maybe the ONLY reason I would upgrade to 4.2.

  4. Yasser Says:

    Thanks for you

  5. Mimu Says:

    Can’t apple just give up this “mouse/cat” game!
    They are spending money and time, and you guis can do something better then work on new jailbreaks.
    The iPhone device is totally cool but if I new what I know now about apple and there policy/strategy I would newer by the deam thing!
    One reason why I give up ms win for Linux is ms lack of respect to there cousomers. Now I feel that apple is 10 times worse.
    Sorry for bad spelling.
    Cheers 4 more freedom!

    Yah, you can jailbreak and it will be untethered, as long as you have your SHSH saved for IOS 4.1. It says that very clearly right above your question. LOL

  23. Jared Says:

    I think y’all should make your iPod touch company an copy the design And sell them pre jailbroken so if you restore it it will still be jailbroken post this if you think its a good idea

    How can I keep from updating to 4.2? It’s like it could happen by accident the way everyone is carrying on. Is Apple going to present me with some choice to make every time I turn on my phone, or better yet, every time the phone rings? Seriously please answer, I dunno.

  45. Pipi Says:

    How do I exactly prevent my iPod touch 4 from auto-update?
    After jealbraking and installing Cydia I clicked the “yes, make my life easier”. Does that already prevent my iPod from updating, when its connected ti ITunes?

  46. Anonymous Says:

    Simply make sure you don’t update the iOS firmware through iTunes.

  47. Thomas Says:

    “geohot” that’s fake. The real geohot published he won’t write sth about jailbreaking out of his sites. And redsn0w works on the gm, why not on the final release? And comex is working on an untethered

  48. Anonymous Says:

    ITunes will ask you to update like before, but you saved your shsh’s which means you can restore to the firmware which shsh’s you have (they’re displayed in cydia at home on the top). There are enough tutorials how to downgrade if you’ve installed iOS 4.2 and it’s not jailbreakable (but it will be, I think)

    That would be illegal redistributation. The Big Boss could get arrested. Though that would be kinda cool!

  67. Anonymis Says:

    If you are jailbroken running iOS 4.x, add the source hackulo.us to Cydia. Then go to Manage>Sources>Hackulo.us and find AppSync for iOS 4.1. After that is installed go back to the Hackulo.us repo and install the app Installous. Once it is finished, it will appear on your home screen! If it isn’t there, reboot or respring your device. Please note these apps from Installous are illigally cracked and you are at your own risk for downloading them. Good luck!

    If u have cydia go>cydia>manage>sources> add this source cydia.hackulo.us

    Try uninstalling some Cydia apps that you recently installed. Some apps don’t play well with certain IOS’s so your device will go into Safe Mode. Only install 1 or 2 things at a time and test them before you install more. That way if your device goes into Safe Mode you will know which app to uninstall. Hope this helps!

    You have to Jailbreak device now while it’s on iOS 4.1, it will be untethered while on iOS4.1, if you upgrade to 4.2 it will become tethered(if device is turned off or rebooted, you must
    Re-Jailbreak the device). Besides ipad is the only device that benefits from iOS 4.2 really. WAIT FOR AN UPDATED JAILBREAK!

    Yes– use pwnage tool for 4.1 if you know how,
    Or use limera1n for ease.

    If you are jailbroken and can’t get out of Safe Mode even on a reboot, go to Cydia (Cydia works in safe mode) and go to Manage>Packages and uninstall the most recent item you installed through Cydia. once it has uninstalled, reboot your device. It should run on Normal Mode. For more questions, contact Anonymis (me) at computergamer332@gmail.com. I will not spam any question replies.

    You can jailbreak your iPod 2g mc model but it will be teathered, meaning, as said up top, if for any reason, such as Cydia makes you reboot after downloading certain files, if you have to do this the connect to iTunes logo will show up on your screen. You have to run the jailbreak process again to fix this.
    I have figured out a new way to jailbreak your iPod, iPhone, or iPad, using older software jailbreaks with the new firmware. Contact me at my email and I would be happy to fill you in ASAP. My email is…play_my_epiphone_2009@yahoo.com feel free to ask. Thank you.

    Redsn0w jailbreaks 4.1 on iPhone 3G. The site “www.iClarified.com” is awesome for step by step instructions on jailbreaks. That how I learned.

  195. Ash Says:

    Hey geo hot, just wondered if there is anyway to unlock my 3GS on iOS 4.2 with 05.14.02 BB? I know ultrasn0w wont release the unlock until at least 2 days after iOS 4.2 release but perhaps theres another way? Thanks for yours and everyone elses jailbreaks n hacks, without you guys I would sell my iPhone without a doubt

    They will never stop because cydia and jailbroken devices can get free apps and unlock features that would normally Cost monet

    I’m probably the only person in the world who hasn’t jailbroken his iPhone because I’ve heard from Apple geeks, to Best Buy geeks, to friends of mine who use other services who swear to have switched to Android devices because they don’t want to screw around with their iPhone.

    My hesitation isn’t that I don’t trust a community of highly intelligent brainiacs who managed to make technology accessible to us less-than-able folks: my concern is that I don’t know enough about technology that I’m afraid I’m going to screw everything up, crash my computer, and not be able to use my phone again. Is there like an idiot-proof website, “iPhone for Dummies” book, or a reference guide that would literally take me step by step on how to jailbreak a phone and still be able to plug it into my Mac without having to reset the settings, upgrade the software or just freeze the entire system whenever I connect my phone?

    Sorry for the long-winded message — I just want to make sure I don’t sound too much like an idiot. : )

    Well my iPhone runs on the 4.1 and no bugs what so ever. I am really happy with how it works now and I don’t plan to upgrade until some good Jailbraik appears.
    Thank you all for sharing the information necessary to help us get a plus of what the iPhone is with just the apple store and let us use the iPhone’s real potential to it’s true level.

    Update to 4.2 request will happen when you’ll connect to iTunes your device once the 4.2 will be out: just answer “do not update” and you will be safe.

    If people wouldn’t use the Jailbreak for using pirated iTunes apps, I’m pretty sure Apple would make our lives much easier. As long as the Jailbreak is used by MANY for hacked iTunes apps, Apple will make it pretty difficult for us. That simple.

    Ok so I am jailbroken and all but I can’t find any apps whatsoever. I found themes and such. But so do I just go to the normal app store and download anything and it will be free? Or do I have to find it on here? And if so where the he’ll r they? Pls help and if it matters I used greenpois0n
