    exploit is the method they used to hack the iPod touch (and iPhone) something like being able to create a buffer overflow using the process by which safari opens up .Tiff image files :confused:

    Anyway it's the way to get inside the mobile OS X - so far hackers have been using ti for good...but someone could also use it to insert say a virus into your touch or iPhone, so they created a patch that removes the exploit AFTER you use it or hacking of course ;)

    there isn't a reason, you have already done everything that you need it for when you are able to install it.
