Dev Team has found an exploit for iOS 4.1

When the iPhone 4 and iOS 4.0 was released, the Dev Team was able to relatively easily develop a browser-based jailbreak using The jailbreak made use of an vulnerability in the way that Mobile Safari handled PDF documents.

Now, just hours after the official iOS 4.1 ipsw was posted to Apple's servers, the Dev Team has discovered a bootrom exploit that will used in the iOS 4.1 jailbreak. The Dev Team's Musclenerd tweeted, "Crazy timing that @pod2g got latest exploit just as 4.1 went public (lots of work left…keep away from 4.1 for now!)."

According to Redmond Pie, this exploit won't be something that Apple will be able to patch as quickly as the previous PDF exploit:

Also, the best thing about a low-level bootrom exploit is that Apple wont be able to patch it simply by releasing a new firmware update. Instead, it will require Apple to release a revised hardware version of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad and the iPod touches with new bootroms in order to patch the bootrom exploit.

This is good news for iPhone 4 users that want the fixes included in the iOS 4.1 update (proximity sensor, Bluetooth connection issues), while at the same time providing access to the wealth of "underground apps" and customizations that can be had with unauthorized app stores like Cydia.

You'll just have to be patient as the Dev Team works its magic to complete work on the iOS 4.1 jailbreak.

Okay. How about this.

You need an account to post on DailyTech. Do they have a right to make you open an account to post free speech?

DailyTech does not let you edit your commments. Do they have a right to keep you from changing your word?

DailyTech has a rating system that singles-out your comment if others don't like it. Do they have a right to highlight unpopular comments only not other comments?

DailyTech attempts censorship, but do they turn away accounts if it's known the user has accounts at other websites?

Some people that post on DailyTech play by DailyTech's rules, yet find it difficult to accept the rules that others ask them to play by.

You created your account on DailyTech. You have the the right to adjust your account the way you like it. As with jailbreaking, I don't think there is a law against hacking a website and editing your own personal information. The account is for your benefit not the benefit of DailyTech.

Yet, your quick to point out ownership of something but accept the rules of some but ignore others. Hypocracy and hate, in your terms, are nearly indistinguishable. Hating Apple for something is wishes to maintain tight control over is nothing different than you accepting DailyTech's term of service and abiding by them.

Yes you can pick and chose whom you dislike, but you must also live with your choices. When you exclude yourself from the masses and decide free-reign is more enjoyable that is your right. Don't blame the world because you chose a different path and that path is hard.

Do you take issue with what I posted or Dailytech and their commenting system?
