The NEW Jailbreak 4.1 explained!

Ok so the new jailbreak for iOS 4.1 is out! This one is a doozy because unlike for 4.0.1, it actually uses an exploit which makes it impossible to patch with a firmware update. This means ALL OF THESE DEVICES ARE JAILBREAKABLE FOR LIFE! The list is as follows:

>iPhone 3GS (any 3GS, old or new bootrom!)
>iPod Touch 3G
>iPhone 4
>iPod Touch 4G

The only way Apple can fix this exploit is by making the devices with new chips inside! So...what does this mean?

If you plan to get an iPhone 4/iPod Touch 4G and want to jailbreak, NOW IS THE BEST TIME !!!

Soon Apple will release all new stock of iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G with new bootroms (like the 3GS) and jailbreaking will once again become a long and arduous wait after each update is released.

I'm not going to bother with a tutorial, as redmondpie has already done a bang up job of it, click here

Tested by a friend on the iPhone 4 and deemed successful!

As a reminder, once you successfully jailbreak and want to get apps for free, go to my tutorial posted here

"JAILBREAKABLE FOR LIFE"? does that mean if i jailbreak it for fw4.1 then i can still update it to fw4.2 and still jailbroken?

Pretty much! I'm not 100% sure myself. If that's not the case, then at the very least, the hackers will be able to use the same exploit to jailbreak it, so it will always be called the limera1n exploit, not purplera1n or any other ra1n.

Jailbreaking is achieved by finding holes in the closed walls of the iPhone. Normally, jailbreak exploits get patched up with the 'cement' that is an updated firmware.

However, Limera1n's penetration is so low level that no change to software can eliminate this hole.
