More than 11 years since Apple’s first release, the iPod touch where the firmware 1.1, with a team of jailbreak developers, calls themselves the “iPhone 1337 Team” have allegedly produced a working jailbreak for it.
With a decade or more later, most of the people using at least iOS 10 or later, with the circumstances surrounding this news as it gets. Nevertheless, we felt a worthy mention of consideration is how we respect the jailbreak here at iDB.
Citing the Reddit post, one to note the iPhone 1337 Team calls with their solution the “4039 Jailbreak.” Hence with the name almost seeming as peculiar, there is the timeframe of the launch, with a good reason for it: Hence it has been 4,039 days since the launch of Apple firmware 1.1.
As most folks have a working iPod unlikely touches the running firmware 1.1 which lays around, the 4039 Jailbreak requires a Windows XP machine. With a working USB dock cable, are being both of which challenges to come these days. In fact, one should note a consideration upon yourself lucky is, you need to meet all the requirements.
Obviously, with no way of testing and validating the 4039 Jailbreak, but the iPhone 1337 Team provides a download link with a detailed enumerated list of steps in their post describing the jailbreak process.
How did this work?
With modified payloads, one builds the touch-free 111 sources. The payloads, however, has no longer patch SpringBoard, as well as no longer checks and requires firmware 1.1.1. This uses the libTiff exploit around SpringBoard unpatched. SSH is the only method available for the launch of your 3rd party apps. Thus with this, improves any help is greatly appreciated.
At the near end of the post, the iPhone 1337 Team expresses its interest. This can maintain the 4039 Jailbreak along with improvement via updates. This might be a good thing if you ever plan on using it.
It may seem laughable for someone seeing a firmware 1.1 jailbreak in 2018. Others appreciate having another jail-breaking option on the table.
