SHAtter iOS 4.1 Jailbreak: Tethered jailbreak for all current iOS devices

The new bootrom exploit now has a name. It’s called SHAtter. It’s a low-level exploit found in the bootrom section of all current iOS devices.

Yes, that includes the iPhone 4, iPad, and the new 4G iPod Touch. That’s great news, but the sad bit is it might be tethered unlike JailbreakMe which is a userland jailbreak that you can perform anywhere at anytime. It’s not that convenient to use, but on the good side, it won’t be that easy for Apple to patch as well. Apple will have to make hardware revisions in order to plug this new hole.

iOS firmware updates won’t be enough to patch this exploit. There’s still no new info yet as to when this SHAtter iOS 4.1 jailbreak will be released, but we do know that both the Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team are already hard at work in developing a tool to hack iOS 4.1 wide open.

That’s about it for now, but rest assured, we’ll be talking more about this SHAtter iOS jailbreak once new info becomes available.

iPhone 4 jailbreak (JailbreakMe) website Alternatives

We don’t know how widespread the problem is, but there reports coming in that users are having problems accessing the iPhone 4 jailbreak site jailbreakme.com.

If you’re one of those folks having issues with the site, here are some of the thing you can do to jailbreak your brand new iPhone 4. Instead of just typing in www.jailbreakme.com, try going to jailbreakme.com/index.html.

If that still doesn’t work, you can try the Canadian mirror of the web-based jailbreak site at jailbbreakme.ca. Just to remind you guys, while jailbreakme is compatible with all iDevices (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad), it only works with iOS 4.0.1/iOS 3.2.1 and older firmware. This can’t jailbreak iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.2.2 since this new iPhone/iPad firmware plugs the exploit used by this particular iPhone jailbreak.

This also isn’t compatible with beta versions of iOS 4.1. Once you’re done jailbreaking your iPhone, there’s ultrasn0w 1.0-1 you can use as an iPhone 4 unlock.

Downgrade iPhone 4 from iOS 4.0.2 to 4.0.1 sans SHSH blobs to Jailbreak

If you either have a new iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0.2 pre-installed by default or upgraded to the new firmware without saving your SHSH blobs first, here’s a trick that might allow you to downgrade to iOS 4.0.1 thus allowing you to jailbreak your iPhone via the JailbreakMe website. Emphasis on the word might as this hasn’t been confirmed to work as promised.

In a nutshell, you just have to slightly modify the official iOS 4.0.1 ipsw file, and then transfer all the contents to the iOS 4.0.2 ipsw file. This will allow you to fool your iPhone 4 and iTunes into believing that it’s installing iOS 4.0.2 while the truth is its iOS 4.0.1. Theoretically, it sounds plausible, but as we all know, plausible is not a guarantee that it’ll work.

For the full instructions on how to go about it, you can find it by going to Redmondpie’s site.
