Some bad news if you were eagerly anticipating the release of an untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 4.2.1. The iPhone Dev Team has hinted that this solution – that was initially expected to launch by Christmas – could be delayed by a few days. In a message posted on Twitter, Comex from the iPhone Dev Team has said that he might be missing the Christmas deadline.
While there is an alternative solution available – one that the Dev Team may release if the current release fails to work appropriately – that solution may not be ideal considering that it will require users to take an SHSH blob backup for iOS 4.2b3. Also, the solution from Comex is expected to come with a univesal jailbreak tool that could help all iDevice owners including iPhone 4, Apple TV 2G and iPod Touch 4G.
