@comex: By the way, iOS 4.3.2 is (as far as I can see) still vulnerable to @i0n1c’s untether vulnerability.

It will be interesting to see if Apple is able to cover up these vulnerabilities in the operating system to make these exploits and thus the jailbreaks impossible. But given how essential these are in making the device more usable [in my humble opinion], Apple should not resort to doing anything that angers its users. Read More »
