    Bigger than a jail break. My guess is you can update any firmware and not lose your jailbreak.

    The only thing which could be greater than a jailbreak at this point would either be a bootrom exploit, multiboot options or adding the possibility to do as Android does with custom roms: Change power consumption through optimalizing processes and kernels etc.

    I'm definitely stoked about what it could be. Let the daydreaming commense!

    Basically what it means is that to patch it Apple would have to change the hardware on their devices, they couldn't simply patch it with a software update like the more recent jailbreaks.

    i think he figured out how to have an ipsw installed in a way on the device that there is no need for JB after that.. It perhaps gets installed as a fully open OS on the device.

    I am kind of hoping for the ability to run Android. A few have tried in the past but that would be epic.

    People are tweeting 'bootrom exploit' but I have a feeling this is deeper than that...

    I'm wondering if he's discovered an unpatchable exploit that's found in all firmwares and is required by Apple when they create their ipsw file. Apple would have to completely rewrite how they create firmwares which would be counterproductive considering all the iDevices already sold. Lastly, Apple might not even be able to locate the exploit!
    I don't think it is that because that still has to do with jailbreak and is very similar. I think it's something different and a lot bigger then jailbreak.

    For A5 devices up e.g 4S/ipad3/iPhone5 have required Userland exploits e.g bugs/holes/vulns in the actual firmware (software) . Apple just have their chip architecture so dam tight that Bootrom exploits cannot be found in the chips/hardware ATM. Or if they have been found have been kept quiet/private to the JB Devs themselves.Which is understandable really.

    A Bootrom exploit would be a jailbreak users dream come true. Plus with the VFDecrypt keys u could extract that devices firmware (IPSW) & get a look in before a public JB is released. This is easily possible with the A4 IPSW. But it's getting outdated with no SIRI support & additional features/functionality. 12hrs after iOS7 Beta dropped the VFDecrypt Keys were up (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/Main_Page) you could pull the entire A4 IPSW to pieces...via the limera1n bootrom exploit.

    Sadly a Bootrom exploit hasn't been found since 2010 and with no VFDecrypt keys. So it's looking unlikely but not impossible.

    He's figured out a way to let everyone downgrade when needed.
    Now that I think about this, it could have something to do w/ downgrading. He has signed versions of all iOS firmwares which he might be able to distribute legally. Good call!

    I am guessing he found a way to customize the iOS and a way to load it on your iPhone without needing to be signed. Similar to the android ROM software..

    It would be like going to Cydia and looking at the themes to download but instead you have the option to change your stock rom to a customized rom from other developers.

    If this guy can get this this going he deserves a large donation from everyone!!
    Time release the beast on this iPhone.

    Hypothetically, if my idea was correct, its not just for jailbreaking (or Cydia, as you might be referring to). It would allow Root access whenever a firmware is released. This immediately gives full control of the system...with or without Cydia.

    Perhaps he is working with Apple to create a "jailbreak" that does not exploit a security hole. This would be a lot bigger than a jailbreak. And it would explain how he can get signed versions of internal software.

    Listen to that. He's a knob and so are you judging by that response. We must all draw the line somewhere, and he's crossed it.

    I know I'm a little late to the thread, but if it were some miracle all firmware jailbreak wouldn't he just say that?
    A bootrom exploit would be patchable so why would he just say that too, (possible 5s), my biggest concern is bigger than jailbreak! This is a bold claim, I've been doing this since the command prompt days and I'll be damned if i ever heard the day something would top this, alas I shall sit back and wait to have my mind blown. or be instilled with disappointment. (remember the biggest thing to happen with Apple, the Beatles?!?! )
