    As title says the expected 4.0.2 update, to fix the exploit used by jailbreakme.com, might be released today according to dev team member CPICH. Remember to save your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella if you haven't already. Since 4.1 will be released in a month or so I don't see the dev team wasting an exploit on 4.0.2, so anybody who accidently upgrades without their SHSH blobs will be unable to jailbreak till then.

    I hate small releases because it'd say something like "bug fixes". Blah Blah Blah, Apple, we all know why there is a 4.0.2. I hope 4.1 has more features than the betas have, because as of now, it should be a 4.0.2 release.

    Apple stopped allowing iPhone firmware downgrades. You now have to save a little file, called an SHSH blob which is unique for every iPhone, so you can downgrade.
    There is more to it than that, but that's the basic idea.

    I thought Cydia backed up your SHSH blob on their servers?

    Why would anyone who's jailbroken update to 4.0.2? There's already a fix for the exploit in Cydia. Unless we're talking about those people that must hit the Update button in iTunes while sleepwalking and afterwards have no recollection of how they possibly could have updated their phones.

    The 'Fix' just warns you you're about to open a PDF. You could still fall prey to a trusted source. As much as I would like a true fix yep it's not a good idea to update if you want a jailbreak

    Cydia backs them up for you automatically now, but some people aren't jailbroken currently and still may want to downgrade or jailbreak later. Tiny Umbrella doesn't require a jailbroken device.

    If you have already jailbroken you phone and said yes to the 'make my life easier' question in Cydia then you'll be fine. Otherwise just wait till the download links are back up

    try this instead.... load this plug iPhone in and click save my shsh once device is recognised, shsh files can take upto a week to make their way to the cydia server so try not to wipe your PC for atleast a week lol

    Looks like it may be too late. 4.0.2 is showing up in iTunes.
