iPhone OS 4.0 Jailbreak!
As you probably know iPhone OS 4.0 was unveiled in the US yesterday, and was made available for download immediately as a Developer Preview. If you want to have a go then you need to sign up as an Apple Developer, pay $99 and then you’re good to go.
I have it installed on my 3G iPod right now, and it’s fun to play with a new OS, even if it is an early version. General release of the full OS is expected to be in the Summer of 2010.
iPhone hacker “iH8sn0w” has apparently already downloaded the the Developer Preview and said that a jailbreak is possible. At the moment the only details we have are that this hacker might be working on a jailbreak solution for the new OS in it’s preview form and he has posted the keys online here : [pastie.org]
I suspect a similar solution to the one that other hackers have used to jailbreak iPhone OS3.2 on the iPad and 3.1.3 on the iPod and iPhone.
It’s very unlikely that the actual jailbreak will be made available online until Apple officially launches the new OS to the public though. As I have mentioned before, any time a jailbreak method is made public Apple plugs it pretty quick.
Anyone else out there playing with iPhone OS 4.0? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. I am preparing an analysis for Touch Reviews which should go online layer today, subscribe to our email updates to know when it goes live!
