Listening to an all-star podcast interview which involved iPhone devs like Comex, Planetbeing, Chpwn and iH8sn0w who are working on jailbreak and unlock scene, there was this question which the hosts asked the devs about when is the iPhone 4 and iOS 4.x jailbreak is expected to be out. While no specific release date was given, they did said that jailbreak is “pretty close to done”. They are now waiting for Saurik (creator of Cydia) to fix couple of loose ends before it is released. iPhone 4 unlock on the other hand is 100 percent done and is waiting for jailbreak to be released.

Jailbreaking iPhone

The exact answers were..

Question: When is the iPhone 4 Jailbreak and Unlock is going to be released?

Comex: You will have to ask Saurik if he’s done with that bootstrap yet. Like I hate to say this because people will be complaining, but it is pretty close to done.

PlanetBeing: Unlock is done. Just waiting for the jailbreak to be released.

Chpwn: The jailbreak definitely needs a lot of testing before it is released, to make sure it works on everybody’s phone, and that there are no issues like Spirit had where it deleted all of your photos in the first few days of the release.

So there you go.. it is nearly finished, and hopefully will be released very soon. You can listen to the whole interview on iTunes here, or just skip to 43:45 to hear the part where this question was asked.

The newly released iOS 4.1 Beta 2 features new baseband for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G which makes these mentioned phones locked on this new firmware. The guy who found the exploit used in Ultrasn0w 0.93 has confirmed that this new baseband patches the exploit and therefore it is highly recommended to stay away from this firmware for now if you rely on an carrier unlock.

iOS 4.1 05.14.01_BL01 Baseband

confirmed , the exploit used for ultrasn0w0.93 has been completely dismissed from 05.14.01 :( , 3g & 3gs unlockers NEVER go past 4.0.1

You have been warned ! Don’t go past iOS 4.0.1 if you want your unlock!

Here are Photos/Pictures of iPhone DSLR Prototype 1.0 This is the first attempt at putting together an iPhone DSLR. You might ask… Why pair an iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 4 with a DSLR lens? Why not!

Apple has updated its iPhone 4 camera and now has 5-megapixels still frames, HD video, and an LED flash. Put that together with a DSLR lens, and you’ve got a device that can shoot amazing images/video with SLR lenses, edit them on the fly, and share them on the internet all in one device.

Mount:
The mount currently fits only Canon EF lenses. Eventually, with the right adaptors, It should be able to fit Canon FD lenses, Nikon lenses, and M42 lenses.

Housing:
The housing is a solid piece of anodized billet aluminum. It weigths about 1.1 lbs, has two handle grips, and 4 x 1/4″-20 female threaded mounting holes so you can actually screw this thing into a standard tripod. The housing can fit any iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 4.

The newly released iOS 4.1 Beta 2 is jailbreakable using the existing version 0.9.5b5 of Redsn0w. However this Redsn0w jailbreak is supported on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G only. Here is the update on this from the iPhone Dev-Team blog:

Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5

If you’ve updated to 4.1beta2 on iPhone3G or iPod2G(non-MC), you can use this redsn0w from June to jailbreak. Just point it at the 4.0 IPSW (the public one, not the developer GM one).

(Yes – point it at the 4.0 IPSW even though you’re at 4.1beta2).

Don’t do this if you need the ultrasn0w carrier unlock!!

Note 1: This won’t hacktivate your iPhone3G – but for those with legit access to the 4.1beta2 this shouldn’t matter. Please don’t pirate Apple software

Note 2: If you’re at 4.1beta2 you’ll probably experience network problems after jailbreaking. Until a new version of redsn0w is released, you may need to rely on afc2 access (such as FunBox-like file browser programs) to manipulate your filesystem.

Note 3: This is recommended only for power users who can deal with the problems that will pop up as the JB apps fall further behind the beta firmwares.

So all you need is the latest iOS 4.1 Beta 2 firmware for iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2G (non-MC Models) and you can jailbreak it using Redsn0w on Windows and Mac. Again, this is strictly for iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (non-MC models) only. If your iPhone 3G relies on an unlock, you MUST STAY AWAY from iOS 4.1 for now.

Full set of instructions on how to to jailbreak iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G on iOS 4.1 using Redsn0w 0.9.5 can be found here. Please read all the instructions carefully before upgrading and jailbreaking your phone on iOS 4.1.

iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 3G and 2G (MC models) users will have to wait for the new all iOS device jailbreak by Comex, which is currently in testing stages and will be out as soon as all the bugs have been ironed out.

Download iOS 4.1 Beta 2

Yesterday, a court in United States ruled jailbreaking and unlocking iPhones as 100 percent legal as long as it does not violate any copyright laws. This decision was a blow for Apple who has always been against jailbreaking of iPhones. When asked about this ruling, Apple at the moment at least has adopted defensive strategy, saying that jailbreaking may have been declared as legal but it will still void your iPhone’s warranty with Apple.

Apple

This what an Apple spokesperson said to the Cult of Mac site:

Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.

Well there is nothing wrong with Apple’s spokesperson statement above, but that last remark that jailbreaking will cause your iPhone to become unstable and unreliable is a bit too much in my opinion. After all, if jailbreaking iPhone was so problematic, you wouldn’t have an estimated 10 percent of jailbroken iPhones. And now since the jailbreaking has gone officially legal, expect this number to go even higher in the coming months!

So there you go.. if you have a jailbroken iPhone and for some reason you are in need to take it to Apple Store, make sure you restore it back to factory settings by simply restoring it to the official firmware via iTunes.
