    You could now. There will most likey be a jailbreak out around 4.1. But getting the phone early you can have the phone before the next item is patched. The people that bought it day 1 and waited are able to downgrade if they want back to 4.0 since they have the SHSH saved.
    Good idea , guess I'll order one from the online store ( can't stand the retail) and put it on the shelf. Then when jailbreak is near activate it.
    I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
    This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

    i dont know who is the most clever the dev teams or saurik

    this pdf patch ive just installed, it wont block the jailbreakme should i need to jailbreakme again will it ?
    Nope! The vulnerability is part of the firmware itself so the hole will always be a part of 4.0.1. Make sure you got the SHSH's though else you wouldn't be able to downgrade/restore in the first place.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Ok. Now... When will MMI updated their broken link in cydia. Talk about annoying to get the broken/missing link everytime I login.
    MMI server is getting hammered and cannot handle the band with!

    I don't think I have open Cydia over 5 in the last month that some repo failed!

    It's something that we are going to have to put up with as I don't think any of the repos are going to update there servers just to accommodate us probality a money thing!

    RedSn0w is updated to jailbreak 4.0.2 according to musclenerd's tweet. Update if you wish.... ONLY IPHONE 3G AND IPOD TOUCH 2G (NON-MC) SUPPORTED AT THIS TIME FOR 4.0.2.

    Note: Point RedSn0w to a 4.0 IPSW, NOT a 4.0.2 IPSW. You must be on 4.0.2 for this to work

    Is anybody gonna answer my f**kin question? Or should I just tank this jailbreak and restore. I've got the majority of people saying that the PDF Patch fixes the security issue. And now Happy Noodle Boy is saying that the hole will ALWAYS be apart of the iOS 4.0.1

    So what's the deal? Which is it?

    As long as you are on 4.0.1 and below and I do not know all of the below, you WILL ALWAYS have this hole!

    You can find the patch in Cydia and it is named


    PDF Patch (CVE-2010-17..

    The fix is already in 4.0.2

    Hope this help!

    Questions from a n00b. I just got 2 iP4s this morning so they should still have 4.0.1. I'll jailbreak them tonight, but is it too late for Cydia to "Make my life easier" and save my SHSHs?

    And a very big thank you to Saurik, at least my other phones are safe now that I've dl'd the PDF patch.

    I'm still a bit confuzled. If the hole is always there....what is the point of the "PDF Patch" from Saurik?

    Maybe I missed something.

    It was there all along. The patch Saurik did fixes it with the older devices that are at end of life on 3.1.3 also. Like first gen iPod Touch and 2G iPhone.

    Apple patched it with 4.0.2 but not all iDevices can be upgraded to 4.0. It is also there for jailbreakers because there is no need to go to 4.0.2 because thats all it does and Saurik fixed that for us with this.

    The patch closes the hole.

    But stock 4.0.1 and below will still have the hole or better words the security flaw, unless the patch has been applied!
