    Default Apple Releases iTunes 8.2, Jailbreakers beware
    Apple released iTunes 8.2 early this afternoon, an update to its music jukebox software and online store interface for the Mac and Windows. It's available for download through the Software Update system preference.


    Apple notes that iTunes 8.2 now supports iPhones and iPod touches equipped with the iPhone 3.0 software update. Other accessibility improvements and bug fixes have also been made.

    Jailbreakers beware: Apple also improved security in iTunes 8.2. According to a notice, Apple has improved bounds checking in 8.2 to prevent a stack buffer overflow problem that could lead to unexpected app termination or arbitrary code execution.


    from MuscleNerd:
    Today's iTunes 8.2 update changes the way your computer talks to the device. This affects things like QuickPwn and PwnageTool when they try to identify what's connected. Also, ssh over usb breaks due to same reasons. Fixes are in the works but for now avoid 8.2(These are probably *not* anti-jailbreak maneuvers, just Apple changing protocols that normally only Apple cares about.) To fully uninstall iTunes 8.2 on Mac, close all iTunes and do this from Terminal.app. Do NOT mistype it .. https://twerbose.com/t8791
    from Chronic dev:

    iTunes 8.2 Update == Bad. It will check the hash of newer firmware images, call the mothership when restoring to beta firmwares, have updated MobileDevice so programs like QuickPwn and anything else that uses MD will get messed up, make sure your device has the correct security epoch, chipid, security domain, production mode, board id, bb chip id, etc. They can all be patched, but for now, hold back from updating.
    If you got too excited and installed the new iTunes grab this file to uninstall iTunes 8.2 on a Mac



    If you install iTunes 8.2, QuickPwn and PwnageTool will not be able to talk to your phone correctly. You can always jailbreak with iTunes 8.1 or iTunes 8.2 prerelease for beta 4.

    I updated hoping that it will fix some of the songs the won't play since the last iTunes update but I was wrong they still don't play, play fine on earlier versions of iTunes and WMP though.

    It should not effect anyone who is already jailbroken.
