Apple is all set to release iOS 4.2 for iPhone, iPod and iPad. Recent rumors suggest Apple plans to release iTunes 10.1 with Mac OS X 10.6.5 tomorrow, while iOS 4.2 should be released sometime on Friday. Mac OS X 10.6.5 and iTunes 10.1 will support AirPlay and AirPrint. Other hand iPhone Dev Team also released an update to hold your horses and wait for their confirmation before attempting any update.
Update by Dev Team: By all accounts, we’re within a few days of Apple’s official public release of Firmware 4.2. Here’s what you need to know:
- Thanks to geohot’s limera1n exploit, and our original pwnage2 exploit, and pod2g’s ipod2g-MC exploit, absolutely all devices at all iOS devices at all firmware versions are capable of being jailbroken.
- The untethered jailbreak of the very latest FWs and devices depends on @comex hacks. His hacks so far extend only to 4.1 and 4.2beta3. He’s working on a way to extend it to 4.2 and beyond. Just wait for him to work out his method.
- iPhone 3G and 3GS unlockers will be covered by our upcoming unlock. Stay away from any updates to Apple FW until our official release and you’ll be okay. Just stay away from all Apple IPSWs 🙂
- iPhone4 unlockers are not left out in the cold. @sherif_hashim has found some very promising avenues to pursue. Those will be explored as soon as possible after all the 4.2 madness.
