    this was so people would stop saying i updated by accident. how long will a next jailbreak be

    if your gonna be like that go and make your own jailbreak you ***

    ---edit---
    to be honest a tethered jailbreak isnt that bad after you get every thing set up how you like it and not having to reboot all the time on 3.1.3 i think it was with the tethered blackra1n for the iphone 3gs i used the theme X for about a month with out rebooting my phone once so i had no trouble with a tethered jailbreak

    This means there's no need to wait for the iPad FW update to release the tool
    This is probably the most overlooked benefit of this exploit!


    Nick, where did you read that this exploit will jailbreak ALL iDevices? I'm not saying you are wrong, I've just only read that it works on the i4s and the iPad

    I was under the impression this was a bootrom exploit as it is under the bootrom exploit section in the iphone wiki. Although at the time of writing this post all the info for SHATter has vanished. This is reported to be a tethered jailbreak. An iBoot exploit is needed for an untethered jailbreak, right?
    any jailbreak we get is good news tethered or untethered bro lol.

    Awesome. I would be more down for a tethered than an untethered. I didn't care for jailbreakme.com. I prefer to have a computer do the break. Security.

    I suppose this means I will have to carry around a laptop in my back pocket in case i have to reboot on the go. I usually have no need of a reboot, but sometimes a respring isn't possible.
    I am preparing my bag again lol

    Lol, soorry. not this exploit exactly, but in general, SHAtter would bring us up to par on an "every device is compatible" point. good eye tho

    Tethered means you use a computer to jailbreak it. It will be jailbroken for life, so why would you need to connect it to a computer on every reboot? It's not the same tethered that applied to the 3gS. Untethered means something like jailbreakme, done OTA.

    No, just paranoid that a hacker could insert code into a web-based jailbreak.

    lol tethered just means that when you reboot the phone it must be connected to a computer to get around the intial boot exploits the jb needs in order to run....RAM disk...the jailbreakme.com was NOT an OTA jailbreak it was run through a hole in the pdf reader of the device. an OTA jailbreak would mean you could send the jailbreak OVER THE AIR from a computer to your phone without having to do anything on the phone...untethered means the ramdisk is fully updated to the jailbreak and that means you dont have to re jailbreak everytime u turn it off...please research before posting inane comments

    I would think jailbreakme.com was/is a safe website.

    After that you just download Sauriks update and done.

    I kind of read this in a hurry. So is the first 4.1 jb gonna be tethered, and if so will there be an untethered one later? I'm on a iPhone 4 by the way.

    Jailbroken for life means that the phone will be jailbreakable no matter what iOS updates apple releases.

    Tethered means being basically "attached" to your computer in a way; you must boot your device by running code on it (via the dock connector) to make use of an exploit.

    Damn I can't use a tethered jailbreak on my i4, what happens if I'm out an it starts acting up needing a reboot, fail. Still I'll have a go with it on my 3G mostly to see what difference 4.1 makes
    Great job once again devteam!!!

    Wait, will this be available for 3G? As it's a a4 chip exploit? I'm guessing they might bundle in a jailbreak for non i4, iPad, ipod4g owners on 4.1?
    What does everyone think???
