So - my iPhone 4, 4.0.1, is already jailbroken. But I believe mine is a software exploit, isn't that right? So when the new jailbreak comes out, what should I do? Unjailbreak and then update to 4.2 and re-jailbreak?

If you need an unlock, it means you will build a custom ipsw via PwnageTool (new version, that supports SHAtter exploit) and get 4.1 with old baseband version. If you do not need an unlock, you just update to 4.1 and then jailbreak it with SHAtter. :)

Gosh, I'm really anxious for this one. My brand new iPhone 4 thanks you. Great work guys!

So nice of the hackers to give Apple the exact items to fix.

It's a hardware exploit, so until they change the hardware, the exploit will remain

I know right. Why would they want to post this to the whole world? I know the shatter exploit is suppose to be very difficult for apple to patch... but aren't jailbreakers better off with apple not knowing?

I think I accidentally marked an item as spam... So sorry, trying to respond from iPhone and finger slipped... But it will take a hardware refresh with will likely happen in new lot numbers but for now there's not much apple can do about it.

To reiterate: it is a HARDWARE EXPLOIT. Meaning, until a new device. iPhone 4 is set for life.

what bothers me about a hardware exploit, is it's harder to cover that you've jailbroken your iphone (invalidating your apple warranty). yes I've read everywhere that jailbreaking is no longer illegal, but it still invalidates your warranty! now you can't just restore and leave no trace of it since it is a permanent hardware exploit.......
