This is their “back up” jailbreak. MuscleNerd was quick to comment and said that the jailbreak WILL NOT require a restore. All it will require is a run of redsn0w.
This is great news for people that don’t want to restore their iOS devices. I’ve learned to deal with restores. I used to be the same, but not anymore. If a restore is necessary, then I’ll just do it and just start a fresh sync.

Clear.com is offering their iSpot 4G wireless modem for only $20. Price of the iSpot is normally $99. This sale is today only and is a great deal. It is similar to Verizon’s MiFi but you get unlimited 4G access for only $25 per month.
The iSpot is restricted for use with only Apple iDevices like the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, but with a tweaked firmware version, you can jailbreak the modem to use with any wireless device.
In order to jailbreak the iSpot all you have to do is visit the site http://ispotunrestricted.com/2.0/ and the tweaked firmware will be automatically applied to the iSpot. (Please note that with all jailbreaks, you will void your warranty)
This seems like a great deal if there is coverage in your area. Clear has a lot of major cities covered worldwide and you can check your coverage here: Clear 4G Coverage Map
Remember you can save a lot of money today ($79). This service is a no contract pay monthly plan. You can cancel anytime and they also give you a 14 day trial. If you are not happy, you can return it all for a full refund.
So to recap it is $45 for the first month, which includes the wireless 4G iSpot modem, and then $25 every month with no contract.

Hey guys, looks like the iPhone Dev Team has indeed 2 options for an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1. Last night, I was on Twitter when MuscleNerd tweeted that he was preparing to use the mysterious iOS 4.2.1 beta 3 kernel hack that they had been keeping a secret.
Looks like Apple had messed up with iOS 4.2.1 beta 3 in which there seems to be a vulnerability in the kernel (which also does the checks at boot of whether it’s a jailbroken or stock file system).
Now, comex is still working on his untethered exploit, but it seems that what he is working on is a more permanent solution for the future of A4 devices, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled on that.
So for everyone on iOS 4.2.1 (especially iPad users) there is good news, it’s not just Santa Clause thats coming to town, looks like the Jailbreak Train is coming as well, and it looks like they’ve cut the tether.
Here’s what MuscleNerd had to say:
Got “backup plan” for untethered 4.2.1 JB working (video coming up). Uses mysterious 4.2b3 hashes Cydia kept for you.
(It’s a “backup plan” because comex is working on a more extensible one, but this method is also generalizable)

Hey guys, looks like Apple wasn’t very fond of people using the camera connection kit to use wired keyboards, USB flash drives, and microphones with the iPad. As of iOS 4.2, Apple has cut the amount of power that the 30-pin dock connector gives off to external devices.
The iPad used to output 100mA, but as of iOS 4.2, it only gives off a mere 20mA. While this is great for battery life, this is not so great for people who had the extra functionality given by Apple’s own camera connection kit, which retailed for $29.
I honestly could see this happening when people discovered that you could connect other things to the iPad besides an SD card or a camera.
I’m also sure that we will see a hack that solves this issue soon. It may be sooner rather than later.
More to come…

UPDATE 2: Looks like a lot of us fell for “Alpha”‘s “leak”. Many websites were fed the same story, but MuscleNerd has said that there is no “Over-The-Air-Relocking” code in the baseband, but says little else. Is it possible that this really is true? I’m not sure either way.
Everyone who got tipped off of “Apple’s secret plans” also believes that this info is true, but if MuscleNerd (a respected member of the iPhone Dev Team) says theres nothing like that, then I am inclined to believe him. He also debunked their downgrading procedures and has said that you will recieve iTunes error 1015 if you do this as described.
However, remember the Apple killswitch last year? The one that was discovered by someone else entirely who was also tipped off? Well, that turned out to be absolutely true and you can disable Apple’s not-so-secret-anymore switch from SBSettings today.
The situation today and from last year was very similar, so that’s why I still theres a chance this may be (even one day) the case.
UPDATE: If this “leak” is untrue, I appologize for this. This seemed highly credible, we all make mistakes, and I do appologize, I thought this to be true, however, this doesnt mean that they may not do this at some point or have considered this. This just brings up the issue of privacy and Apple’s limits once more.
We will see if this is fake or not in 2 weeks time. There is a task on the iPhone that hasn’t been proven to do or not to do anything. It’s called “daily”. No one knows what it does.
I hope i was wrong, but just keep an eye out. If it is fake, all I can ask is that u forgive me. I wanted to spread the word as soon as I could because this seemed credible enough to post.
I think we all secretly think Apple is doing these things in the background with no knowledge.
If MuscleNerd is right, I deeply appologize. I’m stressed about this too. I breathed a sigh of relieve when MuscleNerd said this but the info provided was just so perfect and believeable.
However, this happens in our field. Rumors get started, ones that seem so true and sophisticated that they can make us believe that they are credible.
I hope I didn’t ruin my 3 years of work and soiled your beliefs in me and how accurate I and LEI Mobile is.
Again, I am very sorry for this. It was an honest mistake, but I had my reasons for believing it myself.
Well we have just received some information from inside Apple. An Apple engineer, which wishes to be named as “Alpha”, has disclosed some pretty disturbing secrets of the iPhone 4 and iOS 4. Now, the following information is very disturbing to me.
The following are some secrets that the iPhone 4 and iOS 4 hold:
1) iOS4 has code which sends updates to the user every 1-2 weeks and locks their system if they are not using AT&T as their carrier.
2) Apple can check users’ baseband and carrier information and also see whether or not they are jailbroken when they call Apple Care Support. Apple can also void users’ warranty once they find out if they have jailbroken iOS 4.
3) On iPhone 4, when you use FaceTime Apple can check what two phones are communicating with each other and also see what location these phones are communicating from.
4) Apple employees who are aware of the situation have downgraded to iOS 3.1.3 because they are afraid of what’s going on.
Here’s what he said:
As far as Base Bands go it does not matter what baseband you TRY to get on the iPhone cause in the iOS4 there is a line of code we wrote that stands for OAU also known as “Over Air Updates”. How it works is every 7 to 14 days We (Apple) and AT&T send a message to your iPhone that gathers some data from your iPhone without you knowing and we see what is running, baseband and firmware. We then send a following message. “There are optional updates for your iPhone, Would you like to install them now?” two options “Yes” or “Later”. Those are what we would call “OPTIONAL UPDATES” Now there are things called “MANDATORY UPDATES”. They tend to work the same way, grab data from the iPhones sends it to AT&T and us then back to your iPhone with the message, “Your iPhone (name of iphone) must be updated to the current AT&T standards to run”, your only option is to “Accept” Now you can try to work your way around it until you get the second mandatory message again “You must plug iPhone into iTunes and update” If you don’t do this you will then receive no Signal from the network anymore and your iPhone will potentially lock up with no signs of use until you update your iPhone via iTunes. You all agreed to this terms and condition when you installed iTunes 9.2 and then again once you updated to iOS4.
He goes on to say:
The reason why I am leaking some of this info is cause I don’t think its right that we are essentially controlling peoples iPhones.
Its their property once it leaves our retail stores and people need to know what they are getting into.
This is scary to me. I am on iOS 4. I am calling to the iPhone Dev Team to figure this out. This is insane. Just like they killed Apple’s killswitch, I’m sure they can figure this out as well.
Also, Alpha goes on to say why some iPhone 4s were sent to users early. This was in a chat with him:
He goes on to talk about downgrading and Apple employees not updating:
if you plug in a flash drive to any MAC in our building within 30 seconds people will show up there and stop you. Also you will be terminated on the spot.
This is the most frightening thing I have had to write in my 3 years of being here at LEI Mobile and Limited Edition iPhone. I am freaking out. This is insane. Spread the word as fast as you can. We have 7-14 days to stop this.
