It looks like the PwnageTool jailbreak is getting better by the day, especially for those who haven’t already jailbroken their device on iOS 4.1, as it has just been reported that the tool will be untethered, and that it will jailbreak iOS 4.2 too!
As reported from RedmondPie, it was previously thought that an untethered option wouldn’t be available on iOS 4.2, as Apple would of patched things up by then, but a recent tweet by iPhone Dev-Team member Musclenerd suggests otherwise.
”Think we’ve figured out a way to extend PwnageTool + limera1n + @comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares :)”
In simpler terms, it is great news for those of you who are yet to jailbreak. It means that even if Apple come up with a solution to block the likes of GreenPois0n and Limera1n on iOS 4.2, users can still use the upcoming PwnageTool jailbreak to remain untethered on iOS 4.2.
As for release, it is still planned for Sunday unless things change dramatically. For those that are still asking for an unlock method on iOS 4.1, once you jailbreak with PwnageTool you can then unlock using ultrasn0w.
