    Does Apple usually have a pattern of a certain week or date they release their new OS-es? Any idea when 4.2 will be out in November?

    Thanks in advance

    They probably will use the combination of Limera1n @comex and pownagetool first for JB...

    hmmm so that's Limera1n as in George Hotz
    Comex was Jailbreakme.com and
    pownagetool = PwnageTool from the Dev-team a tool used to help make custom firmware to preserve basebands!

    also fyi have to wait to see if Apple patches the limera1n hole which they probably will! in that case limera1n no longer works..

    I think you might have mis-understood the previous poster. The limera1n bootrom exploit cannot be patched. Comex has another userland he is holding on to. So I assume he mean't new versions of the same tools "Limera1n, greenpo1son and pwnage tool" but just replacing @comex userland with the new one.

    I believe the OP is just curious since supposedly the unlock for the current basebands won't be released until after 4.2 is out.

    you are really mistaken. limera1n uses two patches. one buy geohot and another by comex. the one by geo cant be fixed when the one by comex can. so like last year they can use pwnage tool to disable the fix for the comex patch in 4.2 similarly to a bb disable update. (tho you can downgrade this.) then you have a full 4.2 jb

    Yes...you are correct....that is the main concern regarding the question.


    Thanks for your constructive answer. I searched for 4.2 and came up dead, so I did not find any threads that suggested that "everyone asked this question"

    I have noticed your posts periodically on this forum. You are rather bitter, and it's a mystery as to why.
