    Perhaps the topic header should be "Apple WILL fix iOS PDF Vulnerability", just saying. :)

    Yes. I agree. Maybe Forum Admin can change the title.

    However, this is a question I have. I have no idea how easy or how difficult it was for the Dev Team to setup the website, write the html pages, do testing etc. etc. for this great one-step jailbreak, but I am sure they knew at some point Apple would fix the security hole. After Apple releases the fix all this work (the website thing) goes out of the window?

    I have no idea how these stuff working so maybe this is stupid question.

    Since Apple will fix it in the next firmware update, if you don't update to that firmware, you won't lose the JB or the exploit.

    Apple fixes every exploit the dev team find in the next firmware release. This is no different. As long as you stay at your current firmware or downgrade back to it, you'll be able to jailbreak.

    The difference with this jailbreak is comex found a very dangerous exploit that allows anyone remote access to the phone through a pdf exploit. I would like to keep the jailbreak but at the same time I want the fix. Saying that, the dev team have another exploit ready for 4.1

    How about YOU change the title? Go to Edit>Go Advanced in the OP and edit the title.
