    Hi,

    I cant find a definite answer on Google so I was wondering can it be done and with what tool?

    Thanks for your help :)

    The GM has only been out for about three minutes and the official release is a week or two away. Give the jailbreaking world a few minutes to react, okay?

    Patience... The hacking teams will need time to work out how to JB it. Could be weeks!

    *facepalm* Don't trust everything you see on Google. Only trust what you see at the Dev Team blog.

    Actually, you just linked to the answer OP is looking for. Read "Update#1" to the latest blog entry. ;)

    From the site:

    In other words, it'd be a bad idea for OP to do it. If they needed to ask on this forum whether it was possible, I doubt they're a developer.

    Agreed. But the question was, can it be done, and the answer is, yes. In this case, it appears Google was correct in giving an indefinite answer. It can be done, but it's not very useful at the moment.

    A claim that are Aliens walking among us would be an extraordinary statement which I would want backing up with some equally extraordinary evidence, a tech news site saying 4.2gm is jail-breakable wouldn't come under the same scrutiny.
