Will JailbreakMe Ever Support iOS 5 and iPhone 4S in The Future?

Hello guys, do you any idea if JailbreakMe 3.0 will get updated to jailbreak iOS 5 untethered on iPhone 4S? Will Comex release an update? I am currently using an iPhone 3GS which was previously jailbroken using JailbreakMe 3.0 until I accidentally restored it to iOS 4.3.5. Thanks.

Asked by: Topher from Reno, Nevada

Hello Topher, nice question, but at the moment, we don’t have definite answer for this specially now that the popular jailbreak hacker behind the web-based JailbreakMe tool has already announced that he’s going to join Apple in kind of work. Meaning, Comex will not work on any iOS jailbreaking / hacking projects as long as he is working for Apple.

But there are still possibilities that JailbreakMe will get updated in order to jailbreak iPhones (including the new iPhone 4S), iPod Touches, and iPads running on iOS 5 firmware because of the fact that JailbreakMe doesn’t get abandoned. In fact, Comex also announced that he will going to hand the JailbreakMe project to MuscleNerd or chpwn or whoever will take care of them. If you aren’t aware, JailbreakMe is based on userland jailbreak exploit. So far, the Chronic-Dev Team (presumably the iPhone Dev-Team as well) is working on a userland exploit that could be used to develop a new JailbreakMe tool. So, we may say that new JailbreakMe will be developed and released by MuscleNerd once iOS 5 final build make its way to the public. So let’s just keep our fingers crossed and wait for the announcement of the iPhone Dev-Team.
JailbreakMe 4.0 iOS 5
