iPhone hacker, Comex has updated everyone with few unexpected tweets. According to his tweet, Apple has patched his untethered jailbreak exploit in iOS 4.3.1 firmware update. Hopefully, we have other solution coming soon!
Here’s the original tweet:
From his tweet:
As noticed by @0naj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.
I try not to be paranoid, but it is really hard to explain this as anything but a leak.
The funny thing is that my “new” kernel exploit is actually the kernel exploit used by JailbreakMe 2.0. It was never properly fixed.
It stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3, but was magically found in time for 4.3.1. well, go go @MuscleNerd and @i0n1c I guess
During the last days Comex looking for a new exploit to get an untethered jailbreak and he mentions some details about his “new” kernel exploit. He claims it is actually the same kernel exploit that was used in JailbreakMe 2.0.
Now, jailbreakers and unlockers will have to look out for another jailbreak tool, which will probably come out from Chronic Dev team. We can’t expect anything from GeoHot, as he is busy with his legal battle. Other jailbreak tool developers were also waiting for Comex, and now it looks like there won’t be any untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 4.3.1 firmware.
