    ... is someone developing a computer based JailBreak?

    As much as I love my Jailbroken iP4 and iPad, the method by which it was done kinda freaks me out me.

    So don't update! Also, save your SHSH blobs and you could always just revert to 4.0.1 and jailbreak that.

    Apple has said the next software update will close the hole because it is a pretty major security risk. It's just that we don't know if it will be an update in a day or two or it'll be included in 4.1 which is still off a bit.

    It's a security issue that freaks me out.

    Yeah, it's great!!! Just as good as Spirit, but at what cost?

    DevTeams have several methods to jailbreak and they release this one via the browser because it's the exploit that's been out for quite some time.

    They will probably use their other method in their bags for the next one...

    Relax... ;)

    You know you can install the PDF Warner from Cydia so your iPhone will warn you with a popup if any PDF tries to run from your browser.....

    Yeah, i'm sure the Dev Team has other exploits they can use for jailbreaks.

    Please read the posts !

    It's in Cydia, use Cydia search page to find it, then install it.

    There is no link ! :rolleyes:

    Then install the app that protects you against the vulnerability, jeez. Don't fear your shadow.

    Jailbreakme.com is not 'on it's last legs.' Every jailbreak, by it's nature, relies on a security hole which could allow malicious software to take complete control of your phone. And every such hole gets patched by Apple. This is no different than redsn0w, blackra1n, or Spirit in that respect. The only real difference is the amount of publicity it's getting.

    Thank you!!!

    Had a noob moment there.

    Funny, I just turned into the one thing I despise the most on MacRumors.

    I don't get it...why would ANY jailbreak be on its last legs? In order to close the hole, Apple has to release an update. In order to kill the jailbreak, you have to willingly run the upgrade. So...(egg timer ticking noise....ding!)...Don't run the upgrade? Unless Apple is going to start remotely forcing iPhone updates?

    I'm hoping I'm able to find another iPhone 4 in stock before the hole is closed. If anyone knows of a place that has a good inventory in (or near) Long Island, please let me know. (Want to buy one as a gift, and the giftee would definitely enjoy a jailbreak).
