The first release of a jailbreak, for Apple's latest handset, the iPhone 4, is the software modification. And the most exciting part about it is that it does not require any unnecessary and time-consuming software’s, instead, it entirely works on the Safari browser.
This Sunday, the hackers have released the hack through a website, namely jailbreakme. com. This hacker is said to use the handle ‘comex’, a member of the iPhone Dev Team.
The users can now run the unauthorized code however, there have been some speculations that this might result in FaceTime functionality and broken MMS.
This jailbreak for the iPhone 4 though is not functional with the iPads running iOS 3.2.1, but is said to be miles away from the redundant trouble of first running the software on the Mac or PC and then, tethering the iPhone to the computer.
In fact, it entails a very simple process wherein initially, one just has to visit the URL. This will modify the iOS mobile operating system.
A week after the U. S. Library of Congress, announced that jailbreaking was legal for the users, Apple showed resentment over the proclamation.
“As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably”, said Apple.
The main reason behind the legalization of the iPhone 4 was to avert users from modifying and accessing copyrighted works.
