First iPhone OS 4.0 beta jailbreak hits

First iPhone OS 4.0 beta jailbreak hits MuscleNerd has just Tweeted that the first iPhone OS 4.0 beta jailbreak is now available, using the same pwnage2 DFU exploit that has been available since 2008.
Reads the Tweet: "1st public 4.0b1 jailbreak [link] ..Only JB devs til they fix their SW! iPhone3G+Mac only til more is working."

That link leads to the redsn0w 0.9.5 BETA page which now says "4.0beta1 FW only (for now)" under the supported firmwares list. On the page comes a note however: YOU SHOULD STAY CLEAR OF THIS BETA SOFTWARE IF YOU RELY ON A CARRIER UNLOCK. That's because the beta redsn0w works only if your device has already been upgraded to the stock 4.0beta1 IPSW from Apple, which contains a baseband update. If you installed that IPSW, you've already lost the carrier unlock until the next planned release of ultrasn0w and blacksn0w.

Last week, hacker iH8sn0w said that he has already jailbroken the brand new iPhone 4.0 OS beta, posting the keys and claiming that he will be releasing the jailbreak in the near future.

MuscleNerd, of the iPhone Dev Team had previously released a video showing off the iPad, already jailbroken, giving users access to the iPad software. It is now public.
