JailbreakMe PDF Exploit to be Patched in iOS 4.0.2, Buy iPhone 4 in next 4 Days!

by Jeffry on August 4, 2010

Apparantly, Apple has developed a fix for iPhone mobile safari browser security hole that allows iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad to visit a Web site JailbreakMe.com, which hosts an exploit code written by comex to bypass the digital code signatures used by Apple in all iDevices. The method is being used to jailbreak all iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad including iPhone 4.

On Wednesday an Apple spokeswoman said in a statement,

“We’re aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update.”

Principal analyst Charlie Miller of Independent Security Evaluators added,

There are two distinct vulnerabilities in the iPhone uncovered with the jailbreak software’s release, One flaw is in the way the browser parses PDF files, enabling the code to get inside a protective sandbox, and the other hole allows code to break out of the sandbox and get root, or control, privileges on the device.

We all knew that the jailbreak using JailbreakMe would not last long. Planetbeing (iPhone 4 unlock fame) has tweeted an important information.

Apple has developed a fix for JailbreakMe (not released yet). Better buy your iPhone 4s soon if you want to use it.

Planetbeing is suggesting iPhone community members buying an iPhone 4 as soon as possible because once the new firmware is pushed, Apple will update all iDevices, and then you will not have any way to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad with JailbreakMe.

Yesterday, no one expected a new iOS 4.1 beta 3 firmware update and it seems that the release of this new software version has been pushed to put an end to JailbreakMe.

If you have already Jailbroken your iDevice with JailbreakMe 2.0 star software, you must also save SHSH Blobs to jailbreak in case you update to a new firmware. Taking backup of SHSH blobs is darn easy. Just follow our step by step tutorial on how to save or backup SHSH blobs for iPad 3.2.1 or any iDevice.
