RubyRa1n; iOS 4.2/4.3 Jailbreak To Be Announced?

Posted In iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Jailbreak News - By Greg On Friday, December 31st, 2010 With 6 Comments

Ok so we can all agree that when it rains, it usually sucks. In the jailbreak scene, this isn’t the case. In the jailbreak scene, when it Ra1ns, we rejoice. We dance. We worship the Ra1n…maybe not, but I think you get the point.

Just a day or so ago we learned that GeoHot has forecasted another rainstorm, named RubyRa1n.

Now, I’m not saying another 4.2 untethered jailbreak has been released, but we’ve learned that GeoHot registered the domain name RubyRa1n the same day that he registered his most recently released jailbreak tool, LimeRa1n.

LimeRa1n was released back on October 9th ahead of CDev’s jailbreak, GreenPoisOn. Now, just to speculate, there was quite some time between his registering of LimeRa1n’s domain name and the eventual release, and even more time has passed since RubyRa1n. I would venture to say that this provides sufficient enough evidence to hint at RubyRa1n being an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2, or possibly even iOS 4.3. (Or iOS 5?)

There has been no word from GeoHot, as he was rumored to have washed his hands of jailbreaking, which LimeRa1n clearly disproved, but I am nearly willing to bet we see another jailbreak from him soon.

SO, what do you think? Did you use LimeRa1n? Or were you against it like me, after GeoHot jumped the gun on the Chronic Dev Team? Let us know!

      i was informed directly from a member of the CDev team that Pinkra1n is a fake jailbreak. An unlock for iOS 4.2 is not out yet, however there may be one for iOS 4.1
