These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 4 on the 4.2.1 firmware using RedSn0w for Mac. You will only be able to perform a tethered jailbreak at this time. This means you will need Redsn0w’s assistance to boot into your jailbroken device.

If you want to jailbreak a lower firmware version you can find the appropriate tutorial just keep scrolling down the page.

Make sure not to update to iOS 4.2.1 if you need an unlock as one is not yet available!

iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak and Unlock News

 Apple, hacks, ios 4, iphone, iphone os, News, unlock  Comments Off on iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak and Unlock News
Nov 222010
 

The iPhone Dev Team has released new information regarding iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak and unlock situation, which is as follows:

With Turkey Day a few days off, today Apple publicly released FW version 4.2.1. As always, ultrasn0w unlockers please stay far far away from this official firmware (and all official firmware). Wait for the ability to create custom 4.2.1. IPSWs that don’t update your baseband! If you’re not an unlocker, read on!

The best news of all is for owners of iPhone3G, older iPhone3GS, and non-MC iPod touch 2G. Due to a combination of our original pwnage2 exploit, the arm7_go exploit, 24kpwn, and limera1n, your device is “just as jailbreakable as ever.” You reap the full benefit of an untethered 4.2.1 jailbreak.

Next are the owners of all the more recent devices. The good news there is that due to geohot’s limera1n exploit, all recent devices can be jailbroken (this will be true until Apple released new hardware that fixes geohot’s limerain exploit in the bootrom). The bad news is that right now, the 4.2.1 jailbreak is *tethered* on all of these recent devices. A tethered jailbreak means that each time your device loses battery power or needs to be rebooted, you must attach it to a PC or Mac to boot into the jailbroken state. @comex is working hard on a method that may untether the 4.2.1 jailbreak, but it will require you to have your 4.1 SHSH blobs in order to use it. No word on how much more effort it will take though (please don’t bug @comex about it!). (We also have an alternative method that may work, but @comex’s method is much more elegant.)

As we posted in our guide on how to jailbreak iOS 4.2 GM on iPhone 3GS; Cydia and a lot of jailbreaking apps are completely broken. Both Cydia and JB apps will, of course, eventually start working and if MuscleNerd’s tweet is anything to go by, hackers chpwn and saurik are burning the midnight oil to get it working as soon as possible.

In a reply to one of his many followers on Twitter, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team has confirmed that ultrasn0w unlock for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G on iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2, with 05.14.02 baseband will be released in a day or two at most, once iOS 4.2 is released to public.

simplysaru: @MuscleNerd thanks.. how long would the wait be for 4.2 any approximate time

MuscleNerd: @simplysaru if you’re on 3G or 3GS, just a day or 2 at most after 4.2 is public (just enough time to verify stuff)

How To Jailbreak Your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G Using PwnageTool (iOS 4.1

iPhone Dev Team has released PwnageTool 4.1.2 to allow iPhone users to create and update their iPhone with a custom pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1.

This guide will provide iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G users with step-by-step instructions to update and jailbreak their iPhone with iOS 4.1.

Some important points before we proceed:

Please note that jailbreaking your iPhone may void its warranty so proceed with caution.
Don’t forget to backup your iPhone before you proceed. You can refer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iPhone.
Please ensure that your iPhone has enough charge.
This guide is only for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G users.
PwnageTool is only supported on Mac OS X and is not supported on Microsoft Windows. Windows users should wait for Sn0wbreeze that is expected to be released shortly.
Users who want to unlock their iPhone:
PwnageTool does not unlock your iPhone.
You can use Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone after you have successfully updated and jailbroken your iPhone with iOS 4.1.
But there is a catch. Ultrasn0w 1.1-1 can only unlock the following basebands (you can check the baseband by going to Settings –> General –> About –> Modem Firmware):
iPhone 4 baseband – 01.59.00
iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS basebands – 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04
So if your iPhone is currently on iOS 4.0.2 or lower then PwnageTool 4.1.x will allow you to create a custom pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1 and preserve the baseband so that you can unlock your iPhone using Ultrasn0w 1.1-1.
If you accidentally upgraded your iPhone 4 with iOS 4.1 then its baseband would have got upgraded to 02.10.04. Unfortunately, 02.10.04 baseband shipped with iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4 cannot be unlocked nor can it be downgraded.
Similarly, if you accidentally upgraded your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS with iOS 4.1 then its baseband would have got upgraded to 05.14.02. Unfortunately, 05.14.02 baseband shipped with iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G cannot be unlocked nor can it be downgraded.
Please read the instructions carefully especially the ones highlighted in bold.
If you meet the requirements mentioned above then you can proceed with the step-by-step instructions to jailbreak your iPhone using PwnageTool. Continue reading »

The iPhone Dev Team had released a beta version of Redsn0w for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G users to jailbreak iOS 4.1 couple of weeks back but it was only for Mac users.

They have just released the beta version of Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 for Windows users as well.

It uses the pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit and not the SHAtter exploit that was discovered by pod2g so it can be used to jailbreak only iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G.

They have posted the following update on their blog for Windows users: Continue reading »
