iPhone 4 iOS 4 Jailbreak

A recent update from @MuscleNerd, one of the guys behind the Dev team who develop iPhone jailbreaks recently posted a picture which shows a successful Userland Jailbreak on the iPhone 4 by @comex who developed Spirit.

A userland jailbreak exploits the software or firmware on the phone and the exploit can be executed through a web browser by visiting a website, however, these kind of exploits can be patched out using firmware upgrades.

On the other hand normal jailbreaks is usually at boot level and cannot be patched using a firmware upgrade and will require an hardware upgrade, which usually happens in newer versions of the device only.

This would mean that the iPhone 4 jailbreak is just around the corner, however, it might be delayed because of an impending iOS 4.0.1 update coming on Monday to fix the Antennae issue with the newer devices.
