App release, flaw identified, revision of software released addressing flaw. Its not rocket science.
    Yes, but unlike a pc u can't individually update stock applications, they have to come with the full firmware update.

    Please, does anybody know what OSs PDF Loading Warner is compatible with? I haven't upgraded in a very long time because I didn't want to risk my JB.

    Thank you.

    Nevermind, I wrote to Mr. Strafach directly and his response was:

    "As a proactive measure, I actually "hook" two of the commonly used functions for showing PDFs, in hopes that it will help support people on other firmwares, in case Apple used the alternative one on an older firmware. Unfortunately, I have only been able to test it on my 4.0.1 device, so I am unsure as to whether it will work on your device or not :/

    Wish I could be of more assistance to you, but I do not have a device available on iOS 2 that I can test on. Sorry."

    GLITCH FOUND: after installing "PDF Loader Warning", repeated pop-ups of the PDF loader warning can be produced if accessing clock.app/world clock.

    I started a thread on this also. Please test on your devices..

    As said earlier in this thread by more than one, no you're not in the clear. The hole exists in 3.x as well.

    This really is a prime example of jailbreaking at it's finest. Apple is going to pay a group of people an unheard of amount of money to find this and fix in probably 2 month with an update but yet this fine dev team found a temporary solution to help the situation. Apply claims jailbreaking your phone is a security breach but in actuality they are fixing apples mistakes and making our phone MORE secure by jailbreaking. I think apple owes the dev team a thank you for mopping up their botched mistake.

    I also just want to take a second and thank the dev team for all their work they do....all for free. I will support you guys buy getting all paid apps they produce and really encourage everyone else to do the same.

    Also, on a side note, I know nobody really cares about what I think but no one wanted a i4 jailbreak more than me but I never once sent an e-mail or tweet about "hurrying" the jailbreak. This stuff takes time and I knew once a jailbreak was ready they would release. For all the people that bothered the dev team in this process please let the actions of geohot be a lesson. They don't need people DEMANDING a jailbreak every 5 minutes. Just let them do what they do and don't harass them.

    I tested this and the warning pops up 6 times then goes away and you can access the world clock app. If you ask me this is a SMALL sacrifice for a more secure phone. You don't lose the world time options just have to press load 6 times.

    This thread is about an app, not the iPhone 4 jailbreak.

    If Apple make someday the iphone un-jailbrekable the customers won't buy it:P Personally all of my friends who have ipod touch or iphone all are jailbroken

    Could this PDF exploit be replicated on any app on the iphone that runs pdf files or is only down to ibooks and safari?

    And I guess, if you want to remain having the ability to jailbreak your phone, dont update safari on your phone.
    Haha funny but it's impossible to update safari on the phone unless u update to a newer firmware
