    4.0.2, patches the PDF secutiy flaw and prevents users from (currently) jailbreaking and removes any current jailbreaks installed on the iDevice.

    4.0.2 fixes a security patch when trying to view pdfs in safari. Unfortunately, this exploit was used by jailbreakme.com, which means that now you have to jailbreak your phone the old fashion way.

    In other words nothing besides blocking the jb. No new features or fixes.

    Just for the 3G at this time. I don't recommend updating to to, as some things have issues running on 4.0.2.

    Yes, jailbreakme.com can jailbreak that. But if it's an iPhone 4, then chances are that it'll be 4.0.2.

    Nothing, and it's kinda pointless of an update IMO.

    Well, that's not true. It patches a PDF exploit. It's pointless if you're jailbroken.

    Actually 4.0.2 closes a huge exploit that would allow a malicious hacker to take over your phone via a website.

    Pointless ? Not hardly.

    There's PDF patch on cydia for the PDF exploit so you can stay jb and safe from the exploit.
    Not that there is any malicious tool that takes advantage of it at the moment.

    A Huge exploit that has been there for quite some time and known to many a hacker and never used maliciously. Sure it needs to be plugged but do you really think they fixed it now because it's a security risk?

    well myself for one I trust Saurik more then Apple because Comex found security hole that Apple missed. Saurik filled the hole Saurik did a simple patch where Apple has to release a whole new firmware release.

    Of course they did, especially considering that this exploit was talked about on a lot of major news programs and such, It wouldn't look good for Apple to leave something like this open. And the last thing they need is bad PR.

    How else would you like Apple to release an update? Magically?
