It's a security issue that freaks me out.So don't update! Also, save your SHSH blobs and you could always just revert to 4.0.1 and jailbreak that.
Yeah, it's great!!! Just as good as Spirit, but at what cost?Whew, well jailbreakme had a good run. What a four-day blast it was! I actually prefer the web method over the download several files, large ISPWs, multi-step desktop software, restores, etc. of the olden days.
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, it's great!!! Just as good as Spirit, but at what cost?
Very well said.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.
BingoI 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?
