iPhone iOS 4.1: Jailbreak and Unlock – Bootrom Exploit Confirmed

For those of you who listened to the warning from the iPhone Dev Team and didn’t update to iOS 4.1, we have some good news for you. It has been confirmed that an iPhone hacker has managed to find a bootrom exploit for iOS 4.1.

As reported from RedmondPie, this means that a jailbreak and unlock solution is now likely to follow, once pod2g (the person responsible) posts full instructions and download links for the exploit.

For those of you who are familiar with a bootrom exploit, here is the message that Pod2g posted on Twitter, confirming that the method works on iOS 4.1:

”Works on 4.1 (!) iBSS iv=c2c5416472e5a0d6f0a25a123d5a2b1c key=1fbc7dcafaec21a150a51eb0eb99367550e24a077b128831b28c065e61f894a0”

It is another headache for Apple, since Pod2g decided to announce the bootrom exploit shortly after Apple posted the official update on iTunes – a bit of a coincidence don’t you think?

Either way, consider this a victory for the jailbreak team. We’ll let you know once a download becomes available.

iPhone 3G, updated to 4.1, and jailbroken with Redsn0w. Do you think that I have any chance to unlock my phone before New Years ? It was unlocked before but I was so stupid and I updated… Do you think there's a chance to unlock already updated to 4.1 ? Thanks so much. And btw, I cannot revert baseband, it's the new one.

4.1 is not breakable unless it’s already jailbroke on previous version.
