    The 4.1 beta's are already jailbroken...so most likely no.

    It will be patched before 4.1 is out.

    This has happened before kids. In the 1.x days. 3 years ago.

    So when someone with a JB phone updates to 4.1 to solve the prox issue does the phone update perfectly and stay JB?

    No. An Apple update erases all jailbreaks. The Dev Team will have to release a jailbreak for iOS 4.1 and then you'll have to re-jailbreak your phone.

    This has been answered many times already. Apple will not wait till 4.1, this is a very high priority exploit for them. Comex has just released an exploit that let's you run code and modify the iOS on all iPhones and iPods in the world by simply visiting a website from safari. Do you get how serious this exploit is? Once someone else figures out the exploit used (it's a matter of time) what's to stop people creating malicious websites that modify your phone and install malicious software simply by VISITING their site. Expect a 4.0.2 very soon.

    It is a fun cat and mouse game with every OS update. They patch something and then someone finds an exploit.
    Just remember if you want to keep your jailbreak don't update until another jailbreak comes out for the newest OS.

    I agree this is a massive and dangerous exploit Apple left opened.

    A very classy way that Comex used to jailbrake.

    It is not an exploit

    In a heavily promoted Press Conference in the near future, Steve Jobs will announce that it is not an exploit, it is a feature.

    And you are holding Safari wrong.
