In case you haven’t been following this space much, a jailbreak solution for the recently launched iOS 4.2.1 is already available and is being used by a lot of iPhone users. However, it is currently a tethered jailbreak which means users will have to tether their iPhone to a computer every time they need to reboot their device.
Comex from the iPhone Dev Team has revealed that his team has been working on launching an untethered jailbreak system that could greatly simplify the iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak process. This was revealed in a series of tweets posted by Comex from his account.
The new release can be used on the newer iOS models like iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (with newer bootrom) as well as iPod Touch 4G. The presently available untethered jailbreak techniques are only available for the older models like iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS with older bootrom.
We will let you know when this new jailbreak software launches.
