    Comexs' patch

    Comex states on the jb site: Along with the jailbreak, I am releasing a patch for the main vulnerability which anyone especially security conscious can install to render themselves immune; due to the nature of iOS, this patch can only be installed on a jailbroken device. Until Apple releases an update, jailbreaking will ironically be the best way to remain secure.

    If I install this patch and then have to restore my iPad 2, will I be able to re-jailbreak? I have wifi only ipad 2 with 4.3.3 blobs backed up.

    If you restore, the patch and the jailbreak will all be gone. So yes, you can jailbreak again.

    Given that the jailbreak itself exploits a security feature in your iPad? Yeah, I would (and did).

    Here are some comments from comex himself:

    So really, only you can make that decision for yourself (and your iPad).

    Hope this helps.

    P.S. And it's still there. Search for "PDF Patcher 2"
    Space Gray 32GB WiFi-only iPad Air & Black 32GB iPhone 5 (both jailbroken on iOS 7.0.6 w/evasi0n7)

    I did search that and still not showing up, I am getting a posix timeout error sometimes when cydia loads so that may be it. The servers are probably overloaded, I can only imagine how many people are doin jailbreak stuff right now

    I have found the pdf patcher 2 on cydia but when i go to install it, I get an error saying the file is missing. Anyone else having any problems?

    Thanks

    edit: NVM a reboot cleared the issue up. I'm not patched up with no problems
