    I don't think he missed your point. I think he's trying too hard to be a parody account.

    I have a question.. Can't they modify and make a custom IPSW with their own security holes so they can inject the code? Why does it have to be the original & clean firmware?

    There would be no way to install custom firmware on a iPhone 4S or 5 to begin with.

    Haha there no way u can put bugs in apples operating system... Although i wish it was that easy :/
    Best thing u can wish for the devs to find a botroom exploit that would make the jailbreak last for years ( just like with 3gs --> theres always an untethered JB for 3gs :/ )

    Not yet, but why take the chance of potentially screwing yourself for the future. It's just throwing another unknown variable into the mix.

    No the iphone 4 doesnt have a botroom exploit... However u can jailbreak it but its only tethered... A botroom exploit means that u can jb the phone through the hardware and not the software so no matter what apple does to the software there will always be a jailbreak for them and this is the best kind of JB coz it last for a long time ( as long as u have the phone with u )

    Yes, it does. limera1n - The iPhone Wiki
    bootrom exploit doesn't automatically mean always untethered though. It does mean it can always be jailbroken (in the case of the limera1n exploit it being tethered).

    Yes the iPhone 4 does have a bootrom exploit. It's available in all A4 devices and it's called limera1n. The bootrom exploit is the whole reason we have the tethered jailbreak.

    Not sure of the actual figures now as new devices have been released that can't be JB but in the past it was a fairly steady 6-12% 12% was what it went up to until a newdevice was released when it dropped as low as 6% until the new JB was released when it went back up to 12%

    With the release of A5 devices it has probably gone down so 5% probably isn't to wide of the mark.

    If a new JB is released for all devices then I would expect to see it head back up to the 12% mark.

    I believe jay freeman said himself around 1 percent of iDevices are jailbroken.

    It's just funny when people throw out numbers no one really knows

    The reduced ability to Pirate may affect that 12%. Not that I want those kind of users in the community anyway.

    I hope that pirates account for a very small percentage of jailbreakers.most people are not that stupid.
