image thumb1 Jailbreak iOS 4.2.6 With Limera1n Possible On Verizon iPhone 4

We reported earlier in the day of Apple releasing the iOS 4.2.6 for the Verizon iPhone 4. The release was surprisingly made public a week before the launch date of the CDMA iPhone 4. There was one more bit on this, a possible loophole in the iOS release that made it vulnerable to the Limera1n exploit by Geohot.

This is of course not confirmed but the brains at the iPhone Dev Team think that this might be possible. The reason why this is possible was mentioned by MuscleNerd in his tweet stating:

If the i4 crypto engine couldn’t get those, it would have been bad sign for limera1n. But it did, so there’s still hope.

Just in case if the said engine was found missing, the possibility of a Verizon iPhone 4 jailbreak would have been a distant dream. At least till someone would have come across the bootrom exploit within the hardware and made the jailbreak possible.

That is all for now, we will be keeping an eye on this possibility of the jailbreak when Verizon launches the CDMA iPhone 4 on February 10.
