iPhone 4 Jailbreak: JailbreakMe 2.0 for iOS 4.0 is Here to Stay, Or is it a Security Threat?

August 3, 2010, By Atul Roach

The iPhone developers over at Comex have succeeded in developing the web based Jailbreaking option for iOS 4 for iPhone and iPod touch and iOS 3.2 for iPad, but what happens to your Apple thingamajig once JailbreakMe 2.0 successfully starts running on it.

The option is definitely tempting, but you need to bear in mind that if something goes wrong on a jail broken Apple device, with reference to the revamped Apple terms and conditions, Apple will hold no responsibility to help you as the warranty will be voided.

Apple has thrown its dice after the so called personally motivated hacking went legal and therefore making use of JailbreakMe 2.0 is your own choice. Also take into note the fact that iOS 4.0 is not completely secure and even this Comex JailbreakMe 2.0 has been probably made possible using a flaw in the iOS PDF viewer.

Apple will also soon find a way to patch this PDF flaw despite Comex claiming that the bug it has explored to gain access into the device is still a mystery to the world. This implies that there is not one but two shortcomings which we have discovered.

Jailbreaking an incompletely secure OS and then also loosing the warranty therefore is too risky an affair as far as I see it. What say the hackers?
