We already know it won't work. Apple's own release notes for this update say that they patched the USB control message overflow bug that both blackra1n and redsn0w 0.9.x exploit in order to accomplish their jailbreaks.Who wants to test blackra1n with this update??
Not really and this isnt even a big update. It will only matter when devs start making 3.1.3 apps.Looks like the iPhone JB days are coming to an end if you want the latest and greatest software, however if you are like me and happy with 3.1.2 you can stay with what you have
I would be inclined to agree with wicked.Not really and this isnt even a big update. It will only matter when devs start making 3.1.3 apps.Looks like the iPhone JB days are coming to an end if you want the latest and greatest software, however if you are like me and happy with 3.1.2 you can stay with what you have
And if they continue to leave out basic functionality in 4.0 like they have in the past, I will be moving to Android. I'm hoping that 4.0 eliminates the need for jailbreaking.
It's theoretically impossible to prevent jailbreaking. If it possible to install Apple OS updates, then it's theoretically possible to install unofficial ones too (by making your updates look like Apple ones).
Too bad many won't know about this until it's too late. I've got to where I don't update anything from Apple until months later.Blackra1n does not work on 3.1.3. Someone on the Dev-Team blog said that Redsn0w does if you point to the previous 3.1.2 ipsw, but Musclenerd hasn't confirmed yet, so I would wait. Also be warned that there is a new baseband update which blacksn0w will NOT unlock.
George Hotz already claims to have found a hardware exploit in the next iPhone. How he knows this, I have no clue.
Geohot loves the spotlight, so...George Hotz already claims to have found an hardware exploit in the next iPhone. How he knows this, I have no clue.
Unfortunately he made it clear on Twitter a few weeks ago that he was sick of the iPhone and it's user and was moving on. Apparently he found what he was looking for in the PS3.
We'll see if he comes to the rescue with 4.0...
Really? It's definitely case by case because I've been jailbroken with blackra1n since the day it was released and haven't had a single issue. Not to mention it was the quickest and easiest to date.I'd rather wait for the dev team to do it right than for Geohot to do it first. Nothing but problems with blackra1n that immediately went away when I rejailbroke using redsn0w.
Nothing except for removing the chroot jail from the software and doing away with the requirement for your apps to be cryptographically signed by Apple will eliminate the "need" for jailbreaking. As long as Apple dictates that there is only one sanctioned channel for sideloading third-party software onto the phone (the App Store), a need to jailbreak will exist.I'm hoping that 4.0 eliminates the need for jailbreaking.
