Hey all,

Yes I'm a newbie. Please don't give me "why didn't you read the forum first" comments, because I've looked for some of these answers and haven't found them. I have a few questions about jailbreaking using 'jailbreakme.com.'

1) When you update to a new software version that is released by Apple, does your jailbreak disappear?
2) Has anyone had vulnerability problems with the PDF hack problem or anything like that using this jailbreak?
3) Can anyone recommend and confirm that this jailbreak is safe?

Thanks much in advance.

this is a trick question, the PDF issue is there on the stock firmware, have nothing to do with this jailbreak (besides the fact that the jailbreak use it). Now as right now only the Jailbreak use it, but someone could use it anytime for bad things.

once Jailbroken you can install a supervisor that will ask you when someone is trying to use the PDF vulnerability

3) Can anyone recommend and confirm that this jailbreak is safe?
