According to a recent tweet from well-known iPhone hacker Comex, the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 might be released after the Verizon iPhone’s debut. In reply to a tweet asking if Comex would wait for iOS 4.3 to release his untethered jailbreak, Comex replied:

“I don’t know, I think I’m waiting for the Verizon iPhone.”

So far, the only untethered jailbreak method available for 4.2.1 is the iPhone Dev-Team’s redsn0w 0.9.7beta6 which is currently Mac only…

If you were patiently waiting for this untethered jailbreak, it looks like you might have to wait a little longer.

What’s your take on all this?

    Just a few days ago this was posted on Redmond Pie.
    Are these guys seriously just fooling around now?

  • Bradibiza

    4.3 is out to developers this has to mean comex can now drop SHAtter or do we wait till iPhone 5?

    • Burge

      SHAter is for only the A4 chip i4 ipt4 or iPad and that’s not his jailbreak

      • Brad

        Well who’s jailbreak is it for the a4 chip? As i thought that what shatter was. And that comex was not releasing it until 4.3 and why such a problem when p0sixninja and musclenerd had a paddy about the leak, potentially ruining exploit on ip5.

      • Burge

        It’s the chronic dev teams.. It was ment for there jailbreak GREENPOISON..and only on the i4 ipt4 and iPad all of them have the A4 chip

  • Burge

    I’am happy on 4.1 and can wait for 4.3 or the verizon iPhone . His jailbreak so its up to him , I’am just happy that he has one for us to use 

    • iMex

      It’s not that I’m not happy he’ll eventually release it. Just been waiting for some time now.

  • Ernesto Castellanos

    I can wait. I’ve been on tethered for quite a while now. So, I think I can wait a little longer.

  • vareniskis

    “little longer” – is how much?

    • Kickstar13

      Until after the Verizon iPhone is released (February 10th).

  • DefJamz

    got an idea.. how about next year in december 2012.. there’s ALWAYS going to be newer products/versions released. the ‘hold back and see’ has been getting old already..

  • Byrd

    So screw those of us who’s been waiting this long??!!

  • binky73

    so does this mean that the new ipod touch 2g mc that my daughter JUST got for Christmas will never have an untethered jailbreak if comex won’t come up with untethered 4.2.1 or maybe possibly redsn0w will have the untethered for windows???

    • Burge

      What works for 4.3 should work for 4.2.1

  • Coochy78

    I’m also getting tired of waiting I’m on td jb yes I’m happy with what I got . But this whole rumor this rumor that it gets old fast.

  • Darkhorse

    Well I guess I’ll have to get rid of my jb it’s a pain in the a** to keep on checking on battery while u r at work. Been waited too long.

  • Darkhorse

    Well I guess I’ll have to get rid of my jb it’s a hassle to keep on checking on battery while u r at work. Been waited too long.

  • JimboSlice

    Taking the piss now imo, they mite well do it for free and have other stuff to do but seriously, hurry the **** up, we’ve been waiting now for like 2 month for a jailbreak on this firmware and now theres talk of a jailbreak already on a beta of 4.3 !!!! Jailbreak 4.2.1 on iphone4 and ipod touch 4 already !!!!

    • Burge

      Welcome to the world of I want my jailbreak … For fucks sake what do these people owe you ? Oh that’s right fuck all … You will just have to wait like everyone else .. And before you reply I’ve been where you are now and I’ve never said I want my jailbreak and there taking the piss …it’s out when it’s out and that’s it…It’s there choice..

  • John

    You couldn’t be more right Burge.

  • SueJ

    I’m seriously considering switching to Android!! I love my iPhone but none of my commonly used apps are exclusive to it!! I really appreciate everything the dev team does for us but it seems to me that it’s Apple that benefit in the end cos they incorporate the code the JB’ers have developed into their own! I wNt my phone my way not steves way …. I paid for it …. It’s my property I should be able to do with it whatever I want! I’m getting. Little fed up of waiting for the iPad jailbreak though …. Think I just might upgrade anyway ….. I really want multitasking!!

  • KraftWiz

    Wait until this weekend … ?!!? @Comex ??

    • iMex

      Nope. No new jailbreak until 4.3 comes out. These guys are full of shit. We’ll probably be waiting another month after 4.3 is released for a solid jailbreak.

  • KraftWiz

    well., how about purchasing a paid jailbreak & unlock. I guess they go for $30 !

    I’d pay for it, if it works…

    • Burge

      And all they give you is the that the dev team release …it’s a scam ..

  • KraftWiz

    well…, then @Comex… Pls take your time !! all the best!

  • Tomie

    Seriously, just shut the fuck up will ya!. First it was “BEFORE Christmas”, then it was “FOR Christmas”, then it was “well maybe right after Christmas”, then it was “I’m waiting for 4.3”, then it was “No that’s to long to wait” now it’s something else. Jeezus christ dude, either do it or shut the fuck up will ya!..Fucking posser

  • Tomie

    Hey Burge, no one is saying they owe us, or anyone, ANYTHING. We know they don’t, you idiot. All we’re saying is either DO IT, OR SHUT THE FUCK UP TALKING ABOUT IT! Fuck every other day it’s something else…I’m waiting…NO I’m not…It’ll be out on this date…No, now it’s this date. This guy is starting to sound retard…

    • Burge

      For all I care they can hold out for 5.0 .. I don’t need my phone jailbroke just because a new iOS has come out I will stick with 4.1 .. If a new jailbreak comes out of cause I will upgrade and jailbreak. These people ( dev team ) have lives aswel and if that want to change the release date that’s up to them…and to say he’s starting to sound a retard is a bit rich for you, cause I bet you use his jailbreak ! And then it will be thank you comex your the best … It’s you to them when it’s out and if that want to keep changing the date then so be it … There the ones doing the jailbreak / unlock for use to use, so you should give them respect .. Or if your not happy about waiting for the jailbreak …. MAKE YOUR OWN …

  • Ibnusulis

    Its never these devs’ fault if many depend on them for JB or UL or even make business out of their work. The most pissed are this latter bunch. So i say to these haters shove those phones of yours somewhere in your ugly organ until the day you learn to code and are able to make your own sh*t. Quit making stuff up about ETAs!
