Well folks, many weeks have passed since we reported the release of the iOS 4.2.7 for the Verizon iPhone 4 customers (CDMA iPhone 4). From that time on users are anxiously waiting for a untethered jailbreak solution for the iOS 4.2.7. Finally the wait is over as finally ih8sn0w has released an updated version of the Sn0wbreeze namely Sn0wbreeze 2.6.1 that allows to untethered jailbreak on Verizon iPhone4!
Note: In case you are still on the older iOS 4.2.6 you can always use the detailed guide that we posted earlier using Greenpois0n to do untethered Jailbreak on Verizon iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.6!
Here are the release notes:
sn0wbreeze 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. i0n1c’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, I’ve been sick and didn’t do much, but today I was finally able to get the strength to work on this Verizon untether. Since i0n1c’s payload is not easily reversible, I went to previous exploits.
After trying, pod2g’s + posixninja’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.
Note that the procedure to do the jailbreak your iPhone 4 on the Verizon is the same as for the GSM iPhone 4 on the iOS 4.3.2. So you can follow the detailed step-by-step procedure posted here to do the Jailbreak Verizon iPhone4 Untethered iOS 4.2.7. Simply use the iOS 4.2.7 instead of iOS 4.3.2.
