"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" - iPhone Dev TeamSubmitted by admin on Thu, 08/26/2010 - 09:03
Apple has closed the PDF security vulnerability which is being exploited by the easiest jailbreak ever at jailbreakme.com and new iDevices are now being shipped with secure iOS Firmware 4.0.2/3.2.2, moments ago the iPhone Dev Team has posted the answer to the obvious question users were thinking of "What Now, will there be a jailbreak for iOS 4.02/3.2.2 ?" and the answer from The Dev team is :
"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).
Apple iPhone 4 got jailbreaked yesterday and withing 24 Hours we have an exciting new application on Cydia which enables FaceTime chat over 3G, the application named My3G tricks the iPhone into believing that it’s on a Wi-Fi connection instead of 3G.

Although very simple Spirit jailbreak did not ended up as an browser exploit as earlier expected which only required users to point their iOS Mobile Safari browser to an webpage and get an instant no hassle jailbreak.

Apple iOS4 is finally out and so does the jailbreaking and unlocking utilities, the iPhone Dev Team has posted updates to their iPhone Jailbreaking utility redsn0w and carrier unlock ultrasn0w to support the newest iOS version with latest baseband (05.13.04) - this means that users can now safely update their iDevices to current iOS version without worrying about loosing there unlock and jailbreak ability.
