iOS 4.2 To Be Released On November 7, With Alarm Bug Fixed?

iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G unlockers are eagerly waiting for iOS 4.2 release, as a new Ultrasn0w unlock for baseband 05.14.02 is promised by the iPhone Dev Team within a day or two after iOS 4.2 is officially out. iOS 4.2 GM is already out, and here is some interesting news for all those who are waiting for iOS 4.2 final version.

As you are already aware, Apple is going to fix the day light savings bug which makes your iPhone alarm clock ring an hour late in iOS 4.2 (contrary to initial speculation of an iOS 4.1.1). A support document released by Apple regarding this bug states that ‘After November 7th 2010, you can set your alarms to repeat again’.


Well, does this mean that iOS 4.2 is going to be out on November 7 2010? We will have to wait and see.  iOS 4.2 is also expected to fix the security flaw that lets you make phone calls on locked iPhone. Before iOS 4.2 comes out, make sure you save SHSH for your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad on iOS 4.1.

The untethered exploit used in Limera1n, GreenPois0n, PwnageTool 4.1, and Redsn0w 0.9.6 Beta 2 is going to be patched in iOS 4.2. So saving your ECID SHSH will ensure a untethered iOS 4.2 jailbreak.

      The iPhone Dev Team stated that they need more time after iOS 4.2 release for the unlock for 2.10.04, as there are some things to figure out.
      So we will have to wait a while for the iPhone 4 unlock 🙂
