Thread: Saurik Patches PDF Security Holes, Fixes What Apple Can't

  1. #1
    Default Saurik Patches PDF Security Holes, Fixes What Apple Can't


    iOS 4.0.2 was released yesterday, ending the short lived JailbreakMe.com method to jailbreaking. However, in the process, Apple decided to neglect devices such as the iPhone2G and iPod Touch 1G for this update. Even though Apple claims to knowingly be excluding these devices, they don't seem to care that these users have no protection over future malicious attempts.

    Here in the Jailbreaking community, we're are a little more passionate about such things. The almighty Cydia god, @saurik, has spent hours coding a Cydia package, called "PDF Patch", that fixes these holes, and it works for all devices and all firmware versions (including version 2.x!). The patch is available through Cydia free of charge.

    The only thing that iOS 4.0.2 does is patch the security holes, and now that Saurik has released this patch, there is no reason for anyone to updated to 4.0.2. The best advice we have for you is to stay on 4.0.1 (or lower) and install the Cydia package right away. Or if you're feeling lucky, don't do it at all, but I don't recommend it.

    Thanks to the Dev Team for the heads up.

    Big Thanks to Saurik for all his hard work!!

    Thank you Saurik and the Dev Team.
    Don't take life too seriously -- you'll never get out of it alive.

    Downloading right away, as always Saurik is there looking out for the jailbreaking community.

    PS: Don't update your firmware unless you have an iPhone 3G.

    Does this mean, a negative effect on battery life?

    what will this do to a jailbroken phone? take the jailbreak away or just patch the hole add new security and then keep your jailbreak?

    Patches the hole which creates the security. Thus not having to update and maintaining jailbreak status!

    what happen if i use jailbreakme.com to jailbreak, then apply this patch. If in the future i restore my phone, am i still able to use jailbreakme.com? and what's the advantage of patching it? prevent future malicous software?

    I am soo f'ing lucky, I went to Appld yesterday and got my 3GS replaced due to a broken silent switch. If I had done it like 2 hours later, I wouldve been stuck without an iPhone because I'm on T-Mobile

    If you restore your phone, you'll lose the jailbreak and the patch, thus beeing able again to use jailbreakme.com
