    I was curious as to how phablets would fit in with the new regulations, not being facetious.

    Ah, but I was. Mostly. :) I'm just guessing, of course, but I think it makes sense. After all, phablet is a term invented by the media. The actual devices are sold as phones.

    The first post has been updated, but probably not with the positive news folks were waiting for ;)


    However, on the bright side, analysis of the patches that have been made on 6.0.1 may well expose mechanisms to allow a 6.0 jailbreak to be developed and released sooner that would otherwise be possible. We can live in hope! :D

    Based on what we know at the moment, it is highly unlikely that and iPad2 or iPad3 owner currently enjoying a 5.1.1 jailbreak will be able to utilise a 6.0 jailbreak if that jailbreak is specifically for version 6.0 only, since there is not way known at present to get 6.0 onto the device now the signing window was closed. We will just have to hope that the jailbreak is for 6.0.1.

    Since IOS 6.1 is imminent too, the same situation will likely apply to 6.0.1. We can only wait and see, and hope for the best! But if you enjoy the features your jailbreak provides, you have the most appropriate configuration at the present time.

    Quick iOS updates from Apple make it harder for jailbreakers, which version do they concentrate on?

    It entirely depends on the nature of the update... ;)

    Since 6.0.1 is a bug fix update, the first thing they will do is look at what it is that Apple patched in each part of the 6.0.1 OS and look at the same files / libraries in 6.0. This may give clues to vulnerabilities which would make jailbreaking IOS 6.0 easier. In that regard they would stay concentrated on 6.0, which is why you should always wait to apply a minor point release unless you absolutely require one of the fixes it supplies!

    The flip side is that changes to the OS may actually introduce new vulnerabilities (although in a minor bug fix release, this is less likely), so again you look at everything that has changed in 6.0.1 but this time test the new 6.0.1 code for vulnerabilities. It is much more likely that a major point release, such as 6.1, will be looked at like this, since it will have new features, new code, and hopefully new vulnerabilities. Since 6.0.1 is mostly fixing bugs, its quite unlikely that there are new vulnerabilities to exploit in it.

    So, I'd imagine at the moment, iOS 6.0.1 is being used to identify potential weaknesses in 6.0 which may not already have been public. But once 6.1 is out, it may complicate things significantly. IMHO of course! :D

    Phone manufacturers and air-time sellers seem to have forgotten that - it's the ONE feature that no-one ever advertises. ;-)

    It would be a bit like advertising that your car is also a car, don't you think? ;)
