Apple Patches iPad 2 Jailbreak Exploit by Comex !

Comex has just confirmed via a series of tweets that his userland jailbreak he already showed off few days ago has already been patched by Apple in the newly released iOS 4.3.1. Well, hackers lose the war against Apple again.

Comex on his Twitter account:

yeah, uh. I can find kernel exploits, but this is ridiculous.

As noticed by @0naj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.

I try not to be paranoid, but it is really hard to explain this as anything but a leak.

It stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3, but was magically found in time for 4.3.1. well, go go @MuscleNerd and @i0n1c I guess

Interestingly, and as Comex notes, “is that my “new” kernel exploit is actually the kernel exploit used by JailbreakMe 2.0. It was never properly fixed.”

Now the only hope is from the iPhone hacker Stefan Esser who is the only one having untethered exploit right now which jailbreaks all iOS devices on iOS 4.3.1 except iPad 2. Yes, MuscleNerd and Stefan must find more exploits to jailbreak the iPad 2. [Twitter: 1,2,3,4]

Comex’s Untethered Jailbreak to Release After Verizon iPhone?

Yesterday we reported you about the last estimates for untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 fromComex the well-known iPhone hacker. Apparently he still hesitated about releasing it, as he started his reply to someone asked him about the timing with “I don’t know”

i0n1c asking: so is not waiting for the next iOS for untethering?
Comex replying: I don’t know, I think I’m waiting for the Verizon iPhone.

Till know Comex isn’t able to give us an exact estimate for his long awaited untethered jailbreak, he may care about patching his jailbreak on Verizon iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.5, I think it’s an acceptable excuse for Comex to let Verizon iPhone 4 users able to jailbreak their devices once they got it.

Comex Fixes iBooks Crashes On Jailbroken iOS Device

The well-known iPhone hacker Comex and the guy behind Spirit and JailbreakMe, has just find a way to fix iBooks crash which occurs after jailbreaking you iOS device, if you saw this message “There is a problem with the configuration of your iOS Device. Please restore with iTunes and reinstall iBooks“ so your iOS device has been infected.

Comex has announced about this via his twitter by some techy words, anyway it’s expected that Comex will embed some new patches on the upcoming jailbreak tools to fix these crashes.

Comex Untethered Jailbreak Saved for iOS 4.3 !

Now it’s real ! Comex is saving his untethered hacks for iOS 4.3. Andrea Cervone of iPhoneItaliacontacted the popular iPhone hacker Comex behind JailbreakMe and Spirit asking him about the release of his next jailbreak tool. Comex responded to the guy just the same as Steve Jobs. He’s going to wait for Apple to release iOS 4.3 then push his next jailbreak to the world !

Cervone asking:
Just like Steve Job’s ones, I would like to really receive a short and direct answer to my question: your next tool will jailbreak ready for iOS 4.2.1 or the next iOS 4.3?

Comex replied:
Depends when 4.3 is out.

The e-mail address shown above in the screenshot is the same one he showed publicly on his Twitter account. Comex saved his jailbreak tool as the iPhone Dev Team has released a beta of their backup plan to untether iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak. Anyway, let’s wait and see. Stay tuned !
