No iOS 4.0.2 jailbreak solution to be made

Did you line up for hours on end to get your hands on a shiny new Apple iPhone 4? Are you anxious to jailbreak it so that you can access all the cool Cydia apps (and other things) that aren’t available to non-jailbroken iPhones? Well, you’ll want to avoid updating to iOS 4.0.2 then.

That’s because the Dev-Team have made a rather important announcement. They’re not going to make a jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2. It’s not that they’re working on it and having trouble, per se; it’s that they’re not going to bother making one at all.

If you managed to get an iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0.1 and earlier, you can still use the remarkably simple and straightforward solution at Jailbreakme.com to break through the shackles. That still works. However, if you’ve upgraded to iOS 4.0.2 (or you bought a device that came preloaded with it), you’re pretty much out of luck.

For the more patient people in the audience, you’re probably best sticking with iOS 4.0.1 for now and waiting for the next iOS 4.1 update. At that time, the Dev-Team will work on a new jailbreak for the newly updated OS.

    Why is it that all Jailbreak Method have were the user had to download the firmware and then change it themselves.

    It would be a lot easier if the people who come up with Jailbreak Methods upload the file instead of JailBreak Users download 2 300mb sized files

    • http://www.ndsr.net Lukong

      @Lukong, I mean upload the full package. Changed and all. That is the reason Spirt.exe is so much better to use, and it can’t downgrade, but it can Jailbreak and the fact that its only 4.4mb

    To the iOS 4.0.2 community:

    The jailbreak developers think they hold all the keys to all the gates, maybe for one more week. Once IPA God is released, they will be distant memory.

    To the JB developers:

    Thanks for keeping all of us waiting so long, now your life is out of season. If any of you had half a brain, you would have a new version of Jailbreak released within 24 hours and you could charge $9.99 for it. Such a shame someone else is going to make all that money. Fuck you and the god you believe in.

    Damn, i was waiting for the 4.0.2 jailbreak i hope somone makes one :(

  • Laurent

    No it certainly won’t, just tried it !

    Once you upgrade your brand new iPhone 4 w/ 4.0.1 firmware to 4.0.2 (w/out jailbreaking the 4.0.1 in-between) you are out of luck and can NEITHER jailbreak, NOR even downgrade to 4.0.1, AFAIK.

    This is until some other hack appears for 4.0.2 fw, or until 4.1 is out and cracked.

  • bo

    the old jailbreakme will work for 4.02 as long as you only want a jailbreak not an unlock.

    • http://Enteryourwebsite... Louis

      What version of Jailbreakme can still do 4.0.2?

  • Zee

    Does anyone know if there is a jailbreak out for the ios 4.0.2 yet or is there any way to downgrade to 4.0.1

  • http://Lol.com Lol

    Fuck these lazy nerds for not making jailbreak 4.0.2

  • vinay

    im frm india…jus called for an ip4 for my self.
    wnt be able to use the phone if the jailbreak is nt availible for 4.2 update.

  • Tor

    Well, I think it would be nice if they at least made some kind of hack to downgrade from 4.0.2 to 4.0.1. I really do not care about new apple updates right now, I just want to be able to jailbreak/unlock the phone.
    I have a AT&T sim card so I can use the phone in the same way as a “Ipod Touch”, but I want to be able to use it as phone to.

    on vacation with a brick. FML.

  • Ali

    Damn… Hopefully some other team will jailbreak it soon!
