    New iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Discovered: Will Be Hard For Apple To Fight | Cult of Mac

    Just as Apple has released the iOS 4.1 update, iPhone hackers have found a new way to jailbreak the latest iOS that will be hard for Apple to patch.

    The Dev-Teams Musclenerd says his fellow hacker pod2g has found a boot ROM exploit in the iOS 4.1 as it goes live. Musclenerd advises iPhone users to stay away from the 4.1 update until work on the latest jailbreak is completed.

    Crazy timing that @pod2g got latest exploit just as 4.1 went public (lots of work leftkeep away from 4.1 for now!) Musclenerd tweeted.

    A low-level bootrom exploit will be hard for Apple to fight. Boot ROM exploits cannot be patched with a firmware update the way that Apple closed the PDF security hole that the iOS 4.0 JailbreakMe exploit relied on.

    Apple would have to make changes to the hardware of its iOS devices to fix the exploit. Previously, pod2g discovered the 24kpwn exploit, which allows older iOS devices to be jailbroken via PwnageTool, but has been patched by Apple in its latests devices.

    I wonder if it will be made available before next weekend. I would love to have a 4.1 jailbroken iPhone 4 when I go on a short road trip. Both HDR Camera app AND MyWi would be nice.

    As I understand it, yes.
    The dev team mentioned iOS 4.1
    They didn't mention iP4 specifically.
