New Baseband Exploit Found; Unlock For iOS 4.1/4.2 Coming Soon
Earlier today, developer Sherif Hashim announced that he has found a new exploitable crash in iPhone baseband which may lead to and unlock for iOS 4.2 and iOS 4.1 Baseband 05.14.02 and 02.10.04.
As per Sherif Hashim’s tweet:
hmm.., 95% of the tweets i get (at least the last 500) are either about 5.14 or 2.10
since nearly all my received tweets ask about both BB, I can report very early “initial” 1st step success on both sides, calmed down?
this won’t be feasible before the official 4.2 release at the earliest if everything went fine
For those who don’t know Sherif Hashim is the infamous developer who found the exploit in Baseband 05.13.04 (iOS 4.0/4.0.1), and iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00 which resulted in UltraSn0w 1.0-1 release.
MuscleNerd also confirmed the iOS 4.2 unlock in a tweet stating:
There is an unlock on the horizon for both new jailbreakers and old, possibly not released until 4.2 though.
iPhone 4 users, however, can still update to iOS 4.1 without updating baseband, a step by step guide can be found here. Limera1n and Greenpois0n jailbreak are already out to jailbreak iOS 4.1 for all iOs devices. Follow the guides linked below to jailbreak iOS 4.1:
