It has been just a few days since the iPhone 4 was launched, and it has been jailbroken already. Mr. MuscleNerd has posted on his Twitter account a screenshot from a jailbroken iPhone 4.
Paul Miller over at Engadget.com is reporting in an article that this latest hack is just a preliminary “userland” jailbreak that uses Apple software to achieve this. Apple could easily do a patch, and because it is not of a level low enough the jailbreak will probably not be released.
It can only be a matter of time before someone does release a full jailbreak, but in the meantime international users are best to go with unlocked iPhone 4 units. Unfortunately US customers will probably have to wait a while longer before they can use an iPhone 4 on any other carriers beside AT&T.
We have spoken before about the iPhone iOS 4 Golden Master Candidate jailbreak and it don’t seem to take long before hackers work their way round new software releases.
Are you going to purchase an iPhone 4 when it is fully jailbroken?
