    I have the exact same issue as you! However, mine is more narrow and longer. This is caused by the jailbreak and is nothing to worry about, as I have restored as a new phone and it went away!

    I get the same thing on the right side of my ipad after I jailbroke it. It only happens when I start it up. I have no clue what it is, but performance is not affected and I only see it at start up, so the hell with it as far as I am concerned.;)

    It reversed your apple logo too!


    The strip is fine, don't worry about it

    The glitches on the boot screen are normal. You're looking at the kernel shellcode jailbreakme uses (temporarily stored on the framebuffer)

    It is supposed to do that, it is part of the jailbreak.

    Comex's jailbreak is a high level userland jailbreak. The problem with userland jailbreaks is the runtime code has to be stored somewhere, and it's more difficult here. So comex and co did something clever. They encrypted the jailbreak payload as coloured pixels and stored it in the buffered frame that displays when iOS is starting up or respringing.

    To sum it up, those coloured pixels are the jailbreak code. If you had a good enough eye you could read off the RGB values of the colours and convert them to runtime code.

    I'm probably being naive, but is that true? LOL...because if it is, that's the coolest thing I've read in a while! But you're probably just pulling my leg and I'm just being gullible! Trust me, it's not like it's outside the realm of possibility for me to be :D

    It's true. That's how this JB works.
