Not long after the latest update for the Verizon iPhone, the first untethered jailbreak is now available for Verizon iOS version 126.96.36.199 via Sn0wbreeze version 2.6.1. The jailbreak is also available on Cydia for those currently on the redSn0w tethered jailbreak solution via the Verizon Untether for 4.2.7 package. Below a statement from the developer, ih8Sn0w:
â€œsn0wbreeze 2.6.1: Verizon love!
Well, after i0n1c released his untether exploit for 4.3.1, Apple shortly pushed out 4.3.2 AND 4.2.7. i0n1câ€™s payload was ported over to 4.3.2 in a short period of time but not 4.2.7. This made Verizon users very frustrated.
I originally ordered a Verizon iPhone 4 for my upcoming SHSH blobs dumper. Then I + many others on twitter realized that an untether was not available for 4.2.7. Over the past few weeks, Iâ€™ve been sick and didnâ€™t do much, but today I was finally able to get the strength to work on this Verizon untether. Since i0n1câ€™s payload is not easily reversible, I went to previous exploits.
After trying, pod2gâ€™s + posixninjaâ€™s kernel exploit for 4.2.x is STILL in
4.2.7! After some more work, I managed to get this thing untethered! So, this new release includes that new payload to untether + jailbreak 4.2.7.
For users who currently have a tethered 4.2.7 jailbreak via redsn0w (by pointing to the 4.2.6 ipsw), I was able to contact my buddy @pushfix. Hes managed to put together a Cydia package to untether your currently tethered
Verizon 4.2.7 phone.
