    Here is a idea for a future jailbreak. everyone knows that itunes backups documents folders and that icloud also stores backups.
    What about if we use ifile to store exectuable code in an app store app? it will get backed up by itunes and restored by windows. then the app has to execute the code and install it.

    maybe this saves the hassle of finding some exploits?

    Nice idea, but code signing on Apple is the reason why jailbreaks take so long. The code uploaded could not be run because it would break the signature.

    To add to the info provided above, iOS apps run sandboxed and without direct access to the system. Even if such code could be run as part of an app, it would be severely limited with what it could do.
