    This 'announcement' is no different than an ad in the paper claiming, "All The Chicken You Can Eat for $1.99*" and the asterisk reads * - Note: We have determined all you can eat is one wing."

    This is a tethered jb now and there's no indication of when the untethered jb will be ready, if ever. All threads like this do are stoke up the idiots who think this means a 4.1 jb is just around the corner. To start a thread without indicating this is simply irresponsible.

    SHAtter isn't the jailbreak. It's the bootrom exploit they've found that enables code to be run. For now the exploit code needs to be uploaded with every reboot. The exploit allows them to mess around with the bootrom find a jailbreak, but it's not a jailbreak itself.

    This. An actual jailbreak will be better suited and better developed if it comes from the iPhone Dev Team.

    Still no reason to rain on the parade, the fact that all iDevices are vulnerable is such a great news for me, I was already given up to wait for 4.1 to JB my iPad, now i know i just have to wait just a few weeks maybe to get a full jailbreak (untethered). To me is great great news, no matter on how premature this really is. :D:D:D

    Why do people say it's a tethered jailbreak? Chronic Dev's blog specifically states, and I quote, "We have not yet announced if this is tethered or untethered," meaning it is possible it's untethered.

    Here's why;

    posixninja and pod2g have discovered the first exploit of the S5L8930 chip, aka, the A4, which allows the use of unsigned code execution in order to create a tethered jailbreak, which as far as current hardware released is concerned, a jailbreak for life.

    Dont they just mean you have to plug it in and run code from your computer as opposed to being wireless? Only do it once.

    What they got early today was tether, however I am pretty sure that the "release" is going to be untether, they are working hard on it.



    And yes bripab you can quote me in a few weeks :D

    Interesting. Can't wait to see how it all pans out.

    I had a tethered jailbreak on my 3Gs for ~6 months earlier this year. Wasn't a big deal. Between being able to respring and 'free memory' I only needed to 'reboot' maybe once a month, and most of those were self inflicted via a 'Reset Network Settings' or a Cydia App install/upgrade. Of those handful of times, only 2 were when I was 20 minutes away from my laptop.

    The problem is I don't ever want to get stuck in case something goes wrong.
