  • iOS Update Imminent? Back Up Your SHSH Blobs Anyway...


    [UPDATE: the rumors were right and iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2 are out there. Jailbreakers DO NOT UPGRADE.]

    Unsubstantiated rumors are flying around the interwebs about iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.2.2 updates to be released within hours that will close the PDF hole and root escalation bug that made jailbreakMe possible. No idea if it's true, but we know that Apple claims to have an upgrade in the pipeline, and no less of a personage than the Dev-Team's @cpich3g hints that it's about to drop, so better safe than sorry.

    Obviously, if you're prompted to update firmware, don't do it. But to avoid any possibility of losing your jailbreak and apps, back up your SHSH blobs now if you haven't already done so, before the saving window closes.

      The 4.0.2 is out now. I just plugged my phone in and it prompted me for it.

      Any chance someone could reverse-engineer this upgrade and release a PDF exploit fix for jailbroken users?
      The current "fix" breaks several ebook readers.

      if you press the check for update button then it will prompt you with the message to cancel, download and install, or download only. obviously if you want to keep your JB then press cancel

      You know what this means though, the Apple d0uches will open up your box say its required to update due to a "major" security threat blah bla bla

      sucks for those just getting the phone

      video zoom would be nice
      question.......
      i jailbrokeme last night then restored after about 5 hours to 4.0.1
      if i JBme again now, then at some point update to 4.0.2, could apple with all their evil prevent me from upgrading due to JB and possibly send my IP4 into the relms of evil via invinate loop or something?
      can apple see via itunes that your JB ?

      You assume wrong...no way JailbreakMe works on 4.0.2. That's the whole point of Apple releasing the patch...it closes the hole that they exposed.

      Oh S...t...

      I downloaded-ONLY the 4.0.1 YESTERDAY, and got iPhone2,1_4.0.1_8A306_Restore.ipsw file.
      Luckily I did not update, and found the file in the recycle bin and restored it.
      Is this the last "good" release for jailbreaking/unlocking a 3GS iPhone?

      Thx

      more likely it will have the same baseband and be unlockable. what the worry is, is that you have to jailbreak b4 unlock.
