There Will Not Be a Jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2

There Will Not Be a Jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2

The iPhone Dev-Team has posted on their blog stating that they will not release a jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2.

Jailbreakme v2.0 was a great success, and it’s provided a nice leveling point for all jailbreakers and unlockers on all devices at firmware versions less than 4.0.2/3.2.2. We hope that everybody ever interested in jailbreaks or unlocks was able to join in on the jailbreakme bonanza. Those of you who had Cydia capture your SHSH blobs, or those of you who captured them locally, will always be able to benefit from the v2.0 release. Congratulations!

Now it’s a few weeks later, and Apple has closed the hole. They’re shipping devices with FW 4.0.2/3.2.2, impervious to this particular jailbreak. So now, people will begin to ask: will there be a jailbreak for devices that shipped with 4.0.2/3.2.2, out of the box?

No, there won’t be. FW 4.0.2/3.2.2 was *only* released to fix the jailbreakme hole. With FW 4.1 still in its beta stages, it makes no sense to escalate the “cat & mouse” with Apple for FW updates that only fix the jailbreak holes. To quote WOPR, “the only winning move is not to play”.

If the cat & mouse game escalates too quickly, especially during beta FW periods, nobody but Apple benefits. For this reason, there won’t be a 4.0.2/3.2.2 jailbreak specifically during the period where 4.0.2/3.2.2 is the latest public release. At best, some future 4.1x FW jailbreak *may* be compatible with 4.0.2/3.2.2 (but don’t count on that).

For those of you with the iPhone3G or iPod Touch 2G(not MC version) please not that you can still use redsn0w to jailbreak iOS 4.0.2. See the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard for more info.

Well, I used the RedSnow app on the Mac and it did a fine job on jailbreaking iOS 4.0.2 with the instructions of 4.0.1 No complains yet !!
