Will There be a Jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2 ?

Recently I am flooded with questions from all my readers asking for the next release of Iphone 4 iOS 4.0.2 Jailbreak which patched the “PDF Exploit” , and all previous jailbroken iphone’s stopped working. I have been answering the same question repeated again and again in the forum and the main iPhone 4 Jailbreak blog , that a new JailbreakMe may be announced soon after iOS 4.0.3 launch after the Ipod touch 4 release in Sept 1st in the Official Apple Musical Event .

Iphone Dev Team published this message an hour ago in their official blog :

Apple has closed the jailbreakme.com hole.  They’re shipping devices with FW 4.0.2/3.2.2, impervious to this particular jailbreak.  So now, people will begin to ask: 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.  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”.

This now brings uncertainty cloud over next jailbreak announcement . Bad news for Iphone 4.0.2 users , there is no jailbreak for you now. The iOS patch jas just to cover the jailbreakMe hole , as said above.

However , stay tuned to this blog , as we bring you 24×7 Jailbreak Alerts via email for those who have subscribed to our updates , and you can get the jailbreak , before its fixed.

Note : Those with upgraded to iOS 4.0.2 version from iOS 4.0.1 , they still have a hope to downgrade . Please follow the Downgrade Tutorial in the blog for more details .
