    iOS 5 beta jailbroken in less than 24 hours

    iOS 5 beta jailbroken in less than 24 hours | Apple Talk - CNET News

    The next major version of Apple's iOS has been exploited less than a day after its beta release to developers.

    A member of the iPhone Dev Team--a group of hackers that targets Apple devices and is not to be confused with Apple's group that designs the iOS software--announced through a tweet last night that the developer beta release of iOS 5 was susceptible to limera1n, an exploit that targets a vulnerability in the iOS boot software.

    Unfortunately that only allows for a tethered jailbreak. The untethered jailbreak exploit has been patched in 5.

    Hi,

    this isn't a subject I know nothing about....but isn't patching something akin to throwing down the gauntlet in getting around the patch???

    Take care,

    Well, something else to consider as well is that limera1n takes advantage of a boot ROM exploit which a new software version can't fix. They may end up fixing that exploit in the next iPhone 4S/5/Whatchamacallit.
