    Would the ATT jailbreak work for the verizon phone or would there have to be some changes involved done by the dev team?

    you mean ATT unlock or Software unlock. I'd say unlikely but there are already threads on it started. that day it was announced! ;)

    Iphone 4 on 4.2.1 =\= an iphone 4 on 4.2.5

    And since the iphone is not even out, this build of iOS is not either. Also, hardware is not the same.


    Happy sir ?

    before you ask: No we don't know if there will be a jb for iOS 5

    Jailbreak is software-based. Probably Verizon phone will come with iOS 4.3 and for all of us on GSM carriers a update to 4.3 (from 4.2.1).

    With the risk of sounding sarcastic, I don't think anyone knows until it comes out.

    but to address you, i asked this SAME question not too long ago and a guy in there said that the 4.2.5 was not going to be the software version that the phones shipped with which means they would most likely ship with 4.2.1 = same as the GSM version.

    i seriously dont understand the attitude some people have on here...i thought this message board was to help people...:confused:

    Well I thought the Verizon version was going to have the "mobile hotspot" so it cannot be the 4.2.1 version. It's probably going to be some version similar to the 4.3 in beta right now. But that's part of the problem... since the version is not known, it is hard to say whether or not the phone can be jb using the existing tools. But the version has to be similar to what is available to developers right now, since the software has to work for the Verizon launch. Also, apple can make some tweaks on the hardware to invalidate some of the previous exposures. Only time will tell...

    Man so many tool bags on this site. Geeze relax, if you don't like the thread topic just stay out. Instead of answering like a douche.

    Android sites are very helpful, people always ask about an upcoming Rom or root for a new android OS update coming in the future, and everyone replies professionally with good guesses or opinions.

    Also, one of the JB exploits is, as I recall, hardware based. If Apple's changed the right bits of hardware, it probably won't work now.

    that jb is yet to be released so Apple doesn't know how it was exploited yet. also it is the Main processor the A4 as long as they use that it's fine. however still not sure what TS means since there is no ATT jailbreak. might be referring to unlock a whole other animal.

    Each fw jb is unique to its own. Not to mention the actual hardware is different. Plus no one has access to this phone yet. How do you expect anyone to make even an educated guess as to what to expect?:confused:

    To everyone complaining about the attitude of some of those who replied:

    The OP's question has an obvious answer. Obvious, that is, to anyone willing to think it through. But okay, some people just don't get things too easily. In that case, a simple Google search, or even a search of this forum, would have turned up the same question being asked and answered hundreds of times before.

    Instead of doing either of these things, however, the OP decided to create a topic and ask this weary community the same damn stupid question yet again. This is what irritates people. They come here to read interesting topics, only to find the board filled with worthless pap such as this.

    Some people just ignore it; it's just a message board, after all.
    Others give up on the board and move to one that isn't crowded with morons who haven't heard of Google.
    And finally, some people decide to go into the topic and yell at the poor, confused OP.

    None of these actions actually address the root problem. The solution to this problem is to calmly and politely request the OP of topics such as this one to keep this in mind:
    When you have a question, think on it first, Google it second, and only then post about it. If you refuse to do this, or do so only halfheartedly before giving up, you will continue to be yelled at every time you ask a question, because you will be wasting people's time. And at that point, frankly, you'll deserve it.

    To the OP or other people like him: Keep asking your questions, and if they don't get answered, keep asking them. Ignore anyone who doesn't answer your questions; they are smucks.

    To the smucks: The OP's question is not stupid and couldn't be "reasoned" through ahead of time. The only reason why most of us know the answer is obvious is because we are familiar with how Apple operates. To someone new to the Apple community, they might not know that Apple never releases preview models or testers to small groups of people before a major release like many other companies do. So they obviously don't know that no Jailbreaker would have got his hands on a Verizon model of the iphone to let us know if it is jailbreakable or not with the current tools. So the question makes sense. From the perspective of someone new to Apple, they might think Apple works like other companies. Now that we rudely let him know that there are never advance models with Apple (unless one is lost by an engineer which is very very rare), he can figure out that we won't know about the status of the jailbreaking until the Verizon model is released and a jealbreaker gets his hands on one. Way to welcome people to the community. You guys are a real inspiration.

    I addressed your point in my post. Yes, there are many cases where someone might not be able to figure out the answer to their question on their own, even if it's something which would seem simple to someone familiar with the subject. But there is absolutely nothing stopping anyone from searching for a few key words in their question and finding that it's already been answered a million times before.

    Chewing people out for this won't help a damned thing, you're right. That doesn't mean it should be ignored or encouraged, however. Flooding the board with the same few dozen previously answered questions does just as much damage to the community as yelling at every ignorant newcomer.

    So any chance of a jailbreak for the new Verizon iPhone ? Or just wait for patch 4.3 and hope a release comes shortly afterwards ? 4.3 is due out very soon I heard ?
