    The day that Apple released iOS4 firmware for the iPod Touch and iPhone. Many users were extremley excited, constantly refreshing online forums trying to find release times and clicking the 'check for update' button in iTunes. The time finally came, the software was available - people had read about the multitasking, folders, playlists, background images, iBooks and many other new features.

    Some people had been sensible, and backed up their 3.1.3 shsh blobs - some had not. Many of us ignored the warning from the DevTeam and Cydia 'not to update' and carried on anyway. Maybe it was because we thought a new jailbreak would be days away, or maybe we had forgotten how cydia would be deleted.

    I'm sure apple employee's faces lit up with delight as they saw how popular iOS4 really was, as they knew users would not be able to jailbreak.

    iOS4 user's delight soon turned to disappointment, as they missed all the benefits and features that jail breaking provided. Not only this, but some felt iOS4 was terrible and a let down.

    July 18th 2010

    A few days from one month on, and still no iOS4 jailbreak - users who have 3.1.2 SHSH blobs have been given the opportunity to jailbreak on iOS4 however many users who bought the iPod Touch and iPhone MC Model in early 2010 had it pre-loaded with 3.1.3 - meaning that 3.1.2 shsh blobs were non-existant.

    More recent was the release of the iPhone 4 - which along with other iOS4 devices remain un-jailbroken. Comex is the one who is most likely to release a spirit like jailbreak for iOS4 - and he reports that it he is working on it.

    For now though, our devices will have to remain un-freed.
    The question that is on everyones minds is
    'How much longer?'

    WRONG! He was on vacation (according to p0sixninja). p0sixninja's tweet clearly states that he was on vacation- past tense. Also, comex tweeted recently that he was on vacation ending a few days ago.

    There was never a guarantee that it was gonna come out in the days or weeks after 4.0 was released. A huge amount of work goes into it and the devs have lives (and holidays

    Even though I had a jailbreak available almost immediately, I would have been fine without after moving to 4.0. The benifits are worth the loss of Cydia.

    There was never a guarantee, but I remember people posting they thought it would though.
