    Not really.

    Would you care to explain, what in particular you want to hack?

    The young man asked a perfectly legitimate JB question which should always be asked when there is a new iTunes release.
    Some techniques rely on breaking the chain of trust between iTunes and iPad. IF, as Apple has done in the past, admittedly not since early firmware 3.x, they patch something at the iTunes level they could in theory scupper the JB process, particularly related to SHSH and DFU activities.

    If you are a really serious jailbreaker you should always double check that they haven't tried to sneak something nasty into iTunes, although it is quite unlikely...

    I can see reports from twitter that 10.2.2 is JB safe. Knock yourself out gs!

    That explains it all.

    Now we even know what Young One was asking for.

    I had no clue, but I knew Grayson knew what he was after. I am surprised YOU didn't know.

    There is something you don't know?:D
