    I think I have an idea (I'll do it once I get home and post the results). Until 3.1 is released, just delete the SMS app. This might prevent the iPhone from processing the text and allowing it to be taken over.

    If this does work by gaining root control, it is possible that simply changing the root password would work. But, if it works on another exploit, it is possible that this could be much harder to combat.

    Moved MobileSMS.app to /var/mobile/Documents, messages icon gone, but iPhone continues to work perfectly, without the risk of exploit.

    Default this is BS
    ok before anyone else goes mad with SSH and passwd on their iPhone I'd like to give you what I think about this "exploit" from a developers point of view. The square described in the post is a character that the iphone cannot display. The likelihood that this will do anything more than at the absolute most crash the messages app is extremely minimal. If your phone is unjailbroken the kernel will not execute unsigned code even through an overflow of some kind so this mythical "root access" is total BS. As for jailbroken phones, code just maybe could be executed but its very unlikely. The risk is just not there. I will sleep soundly with my iPhone on and working not afraid of it being hijacked and come Thursday when nothing happens I'll be here to say I told you so. My guess is someone just came up with this mildly believable stunt to get attention. (probably a Verizon customer). Thank you for your time and happy jailbreaking.

    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something
