Ok ok… it seems there is quite a bit of speculation going around as to what the SHAtter jailbreak is… tethered or untethered. (For those of your who are still catching up… SHAtter is the name of the jailbreak the Chronic Dev Team is currently working on for iOS 4.1). It seems that there is a bit of confusion. Honestly, I’m not sure it really matters too much since the jailbreak isn’t even out yet but, lets try to clarify the situation anyway.
SHAtter is neither confirmed to be tethered nor untethered. According to the Chronic Dev Team’s blog (which is currently down right now due to the amount of traffic it is receiving) says this, “Anything you read saying it is one of the above in definite terms is just speculation, again, we have not given official word about the tether status or any details regarding the exploit used.”
I’m sure they are doing their best and working hard to get a jailbreak out… we will keep you up-to-date on what happens. If I had my guess… I would think that they wouldn’t release a tethered jailbreak but, you never know!
