The news flashed across Twitter at around 5 AM EST, courtesy of Dev-Team member MuscleNerd.
First: Crazy timing that @pod2g got latest exploit just as 4.1 went public (lots of work left…keep away from 4.1 for now!)
Then: That latest exploit from @pod2g confirmed to work beyond iPhone4…also on at least iPad and yesterday's iPod4G too 🙂
@pod2g discovered a bootrom exploit that can't be fixed with a simple software patch, or even a re-flashed or patched bootrom; supposedly, the House of Jobs would have to install an entire new processor revision to combat this exploit. Talk about hacking down to the bare metal…
At this point, we can hope and wait for official iOS 4.1 jailbreak.
