Thread: Is There a Spy on the Dev-Team?

The jailbreak is often the easier part. Getting the code to a spot where it will automatically execute on start so it doesn't need to be tethered is what is harder (I believe).

What I don't understand that it was never properly fixed 4.0.2 through 4.3 why not then?

Maybe they just went back and "properly fixed" the hole, afterall they already know about the hole just never properly fixed it.
If you really want to weed out the leak, look around and see who recently start pimpin phat gears around the office

Ok, this was coming anyway, I read last week on gizmodo that BGR was informed that 4.3.1 is coming in the next few days (it did) and its spesificly breaking a jailbreak which the dev team just reassured now, do you think that a lone wolf can't show up at the dev teams door (email) saying he's been tinkering around and found an exploit, feed them the exploit earning their trust with future exploits, now this lone wolf is an apple employee and an inside spy

Can't he still release it? I purposely haven't updated to iOS 4.3.1(still on 4.3) for this reasonmy SPOON is too big

The fact that a spy is the only explanation comex can come up with might speak more to his ego than anything else. He clearly thinks he is the only one, or one of a select few, who can find an exploit.

That would be a sad day If there were really an info leak...

Just read Geohot has released Rubyrain for untethered 4.3.1 to work on most devices. Anyone know if true? I'm driving so can't check too deeply?

What many people don't realize is that Jailbreakme 2.0 (and Star, and any other totally userland-based) jailbreaks are a combination of exploits and payloads. Star and JBME 2.0 both used three separate exploits. One exploit was used to deliver the code onto the device (FreeType font hole exploited via PDF in JBME), one was to get it running correctly on the device (Incomplete Codesign; ROP payload was shoved into launchd) and to patch the kernel on every boot without failing a sigcheck (IOSurface).
iOS 4.3.1 would be no different, perhaps harder (due to Address Space Layout Randomization, making the ROP attack possibly much more difficult to pull off). One exploit was re-used (the IOSurface one I bet), but the other two have long been patched.
Perhaps the other two "new" exploits (ingression method and running the payload) haven't been patched yet. Or they were leaked to Apple as well, and those in the know are being silent. Who knows?
