    If the rumors that we are hearing are to be believed iOS 7 is a major overhaul and the key people who designed the original iOS are either dead (Steve Jobs) or were fired.

    So if it turns out that iOS 7 is unrecognizeable from iOS 6 do you think this could possibly even eliminate Jailbreaking?

    Also if the rumors are true are the exploits that the hackers are holding on to still relevant?

    OP, do you know how jailbreaking works? In a simple language, the way it works is by finding loopholes/exploits and using them to inject codes. Just because iOS 7 is going to be different from iOS 6 does not mean that jailbreaking will cease to exist. Yes, it may be even more secure but humans make mistakes and there will always be loopholes/exploits. No operating systems out there is perfect. Software will always have bugs/loopholes/exploits. I hope that clears up your confusion.

    Now, with all that said, it is possible that people may give up finding exploits or it may take a really long time.

    If there are significant re-writes--meaning new code--then there could be a whole bunch of new vulnerabilities. If anything, the changes in iOS 7 bode well for JBing. Further refinement of the iOS 6 infrastructure would mean better-hardened and de-bugged code, and more difficulty for jailbreaking.

    Oh yeah. I didn't even think about that when I posted earlier.
