Hackers Find iOS 4.1 Jailbreak

iOS 4.1 is less than a day old, and the iPhone Dev Team has already found an exploit they can use in a new jailbreak utility. The hack isn’t available yet, but coders are already working on the project.

Jailbreaking is the process of hacking your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad so apps that aren’t available through Apple’s App Store can be installed. Apple doesn’t approve of jailbreaking or support jailbroken devices.

The latest exploit hackers have found takes advantage of bootrom code, and apparently works with devices that have been updated to iOS 4.1.

The group isn’t saying yet when users can expect to new jailbreak tools to be available.
