  • Apple to Combat Jailbreaking with iOS 4.3.1 Update, Says BGR


    A slight iOS "tweak" is expected to be rolled out from Apple within the next two weeks, says a new report from BGR. iOS 4.3.1 for the iPhone and iPad could be available around the 1st of April. The update will supposedly address minor bugs and security holes. The "minor bug fixes," however, allude to a fix that would patch a vulnerability that enabled the freshly unveiled iPad 2 to be jailbroken so quickly after its release just ten short days ago.

    Also on tap for iOS 4.3.1 are:
    • Baseband updates for the 3GS and 1st generation iPad
    • Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
    • Fixed problem with NTLM authentication in apps and on websites
    • Fixed issue with the Springboard and 3rd party apps not recognizing the gyroscope on the iPad 2
    Few other details about the rumored iOS update are known, particularly with regard to Apple possibly bringing its updated OS to Verizon iPhone's 4. Only weeks old itself, iOS 4.3 serves up a host of improvements, ranging from more secure in-app purchase controls and beefed-up Safari Web browser, to personal hotspots for tethering a 3G data connection over Wi-Fi and support for AirPlay in third-party apps. Such a prompt update to 4.3.1 likely suggests a knee-jerk reaction on the part of Apple to patch the vulnerabilities that continue to be exploited for jailbreaking purposes.

      I believe you are referring to people who have opted into the storing of SHSH's. Either way, even if saurik did have an accurate count of ALL jail-broken devices (including the ones that do not have Cydia), unless you can accurately come up with the total number of of jail-breakable devices that exist, you still cannot yield a meaningful percentage.

      No, I was not referring to shsh files. And yes, I understand not all use Cydia (especially back when icy, rock, etc. were around), but the overwhelming majority do. It's the only option on redsnow, limerain, and greenpoison for a reason.

      A total number of jailbreakable devices is easy, it's merely all devices sold to date outside of the iPad 2 as all others have known bootrom exploits.

      So when do we, at the very least, get to see a proof of concept video?

      whatever it is. Then we'll post on youtube.

      If you're referring to religion, there has yet to be proof that any "god" exist.

      Off-topic: Religion != God. Go take some mescaline, you'll have the existence of a higher power proven to you.

      On topic: I believe he was pointing out that there's no logical reason to believe any of his claims of a jailbreak until he provides a proof of concept video. Up to this point, nothing at all has been shown that I could not do myself without even writing a single line of code.

      I can write code ill write objective c, c:

      C:

      int main()
      int x= 0
      int y= 7

      (x>y) x++

      printf( " Finished!\n" )
      }
      return 0;

      Let me ask you question. Why are so critical. Why so rude? What
      have I done to you that's so bad you feel the need to be extremely rude?

      Objective C and Cocoa64-BIT)

      @interface Truck : NSObject
      NSString* model
      NSString* make
      NSNumber* year

      model[NSString alloc]

      We're not trying to be rude, but we deal with this kinda stuff on a daily basis. Someone claims they have a jailbreak that will own all others, yada yada yada. But no proof is ever given. I believe that you may have something, but I'm going to get my hopes up (not that I really care about having a jailbreak anymore, there are only two things I do it for).
