iOS 4.0.2 patches iPhone 4 Jailbreak, JailbreakMe PDF exploit; Redsn0w, Ultrasn0w compatible
Apple has released iOS 4.0.2 for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3G/S, iPod Touch, and iOS 3.2.2 for the iPad which, as promised, comes with the necessary fix to plug the jailbreakme PDF exploit we mentioned a while back.
Unfortunately, while it does manage to address that security hole, it also means the end for the convenient web-based iPhone 4 jailbreak weâ€™ve grown to love. On a good note, however, it’s confirmed that redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 can jailbreak this latest firmware on the iPhone 3G which means this might work as an iOS 4.0.2 jailbreak for other iPhone versions as well. Weâ€™ll just have to wait for an announcement from the Dev Team about this.
Another bit of good news is that Apple still hasnâ€™t changed the baseband making it still unlockable via the latest build of ultrasn0w. Apple may have put a stop to Jailbreakme.com, but as evidenced by the success rate of redsn0w, they certainly havenâ€™t put a stop to the jailbreak train.
Just remember, when you use redsn0w, you should point to the official iOS 4 firmware, not iOS 4.0.2, and you should connect your iPhone to your PC/Mac while it’s off.
