Wow. This JB world just fascinates me to no end. Leigh ~ so you expected this? Was it fast or took longer than you would expect?

I thought given the drama around the jailbreak leak that it might have been out last weekend, but I guess there are more devices to test these days...
It's not as though Comex hid the fact the exploit was in the PDF engine, so I though they would have had it identified, tested, and out the door in double quick time! Guess not.

I'm looking for info on the iPad2 baseband at the moment. IF Apple has been foolish and not updated the version number, then iPad2 3G users may be able to use their blobs. I'm researching this at the moment...

Well, I don't twit either, but I just use it for updates. I hate Facebook too. Go on there for 2 minutes once a week.

I was surprised it took them this long to come out with the update given how the JB worked. I really wish Apple would stop blocking it, it's my device and I should be able to use it any way I see fit (providing it's legal).

Well the pdf exploit which was found by comex cant just be left alone. Apple has to patch these, so nobody uses the exploit for malicious purposes.

Looks like i0n1c's untether exploit has also been patched, so 4.3.4 will be a thethered jailbreak for devices susceptible to limera1n (inc. iPad1) unless a new untether exploit can be discovered...

And it seems confirmed that iPad2 3G GSM & CDMA owners are indeed out of luck as suspected if they update to 4.3.4 by accident. Blobs will not work to downgrade.

You have been warned folks! ;)

Please forgive my noob question, but does this mean we have to be patient for a workaround for the 3G's, or is this likely a dead end.

Thanks.

I hope everyone gets the warning in time; but, I'm afraid a lot of people will be shut out and in pain over the enormous amount of time lost configuring their systems. I was just thinking of jailbreaking my own iPad. :(

It's been all over the blogs and Apple news sites. The headlines are funny. Some are reporting it as a fix for the PDF vulnerably the German government warned everyone about, others are calling it yet another attempt by Apple to block jailbreaking.

All a matter of perspective, I suppose. :D

I'm curious, how careful do we have to be so we don't have this happen by accident??

Don't you have to say OK to the update, or can it be applied without your knowledge??

I'm more woried about installing an app that conflicts with the others to the point that I'm forced to reload the OS.

Yes, I was convinced it was a simple fix as most of the news revolved around the potential PDF vulnerability. Then I saw all these threads appearing on IPF. I suppose that not much imagination is required to see that patching the vulnerability locked out potential jailbreakers but, I didn't put two and two together.
