SHAtter Jailbreak coming soon? (JB 4.1, 4.2, and more)
Caught someone mentioning this on Twitter:
SHAtter Jailbreak: Jailbreak iOS 4.1, 4.2, and ABOVE for LIFE
I'm assuming this is the bootrom/firmware exploit mentioned last week.

I don't think we'll see the jb for a long time, if it was so easy I think it would be out already, the jb for 4.0 didn't come out for over 5 weeks since 4.0 came out, so don't get your hopes up.
I wish it would come out asap since my proximity sensor is driving me nuts..

I heard that its a tethered jailbreak, which means that every time you reeboot your phone or power it off, you will have to re-jb it. If this is the case then I will not bother and stay on 4.0.1 or at least until an untethered jb is found. Don't want the bloody hassle of having to connect it to my pc/laptop everytime it goes off!

Its a different type of JB redbeard. The last one was a pdf exploit and this one is a bootrom exploit. Last one was a totally different iOS series, this is a much smaller update. Im guessing in a week or two max. Also, as stated above, this will only work until new hardware is issued. Hence I believe the exploit will be patched up when iphone 5 is released.
As far as it being tethered or not, from what I understand, it is already at the tethered stage, what they are currently working on is making it untethered.

So if this happens to be the case and I've interpreted the info correctly, then I will be updating to 4.1 and jailbreaking again, because I really missed my Jailbreak when I was on 4.0 before the Jailbreakme was realeased.
