I wonder is this going to tethered or untethered jailbreak?

Why don't you try reading that again (maybe slower) & you'll answer your own question.

but how many of them getting ios 8?

Me unless this idea of iOS 6 being unincluded is not being accepted.

APPLE WHEN IS iBOOT COMING? TO BOSTON. I LOVE APPLE. FAX ME.
ISMAEL SANTOS - February 2, 2014 at 4:26am
APPLE. WILL iBOOT WORK ON iPHONE 3G? WILL IT SHUT K UP ABOUT iOS 6? FAX ME. I LOVE APPLE.

How about an iShut for your mouth, the iBoot for your iFeet is going to have to iWait.

What Ive learned is there is no absolutes. There is no such thing as "unexploitable". So for hackers and developers, the claim of "permanent" jailbreak is merely an understanding rather than a set in stone concept. Its not that Apple cant eliminate such an exploit, it's that they would have to change the structure of the boot process, which is something that is generally a constant with little variable.

I guess I don't see the importance of this when these devices will plateau soon in terms of OS upgradability. If I can't upgrade beyond iOS 7.0.4 and it's already jailbroken, I'm essentially already jailbroken for life, right? Does Apple go back and patch old versions of iOS? No, right? And the average iPhone user will upgrade their device in 3-4 years, if not sooner, so you'll be back to square one then anyway...Still, short term benefits are good, I suppose.

so what ur saying is apple have no way, to access this hardcoded key, even though they designed and know every there is to know? if i designed something anything im sure i would know how to flush out what i don't want there! until i fully know how it works, i doubt everything i read or hear! unless its proven! plus tomorrow is another day who knows what comes next, these guys are at the top, and do what they like when they like!

Read this in a book i have and thought it might help explain in more detail. "Vulnerabilities inside iBoot are nearly as powerful as vulnerabilities inside the bootrom when it comes to features they can provide. These vulnerabilities have the downside that iBoot is not baked into the hardware and therefore they can be fixed by a simple software upgrade. Aside from this, iBoot is still early enough in the bootchain that boot arguments can be given to the kernel, the kernel can be patched, or the hardware can be used directly to perform GID key AES operations"

Hooray!!! Hope it works for my Apple TV 3!

Its possible if it goes into the kernel (which more than likely does) and is inserted into the actual boot processes itself. Any code bootable code can be entered into the boot process, this is how Apple or any OS is able to load an OS in the first place

Does this also allow downgrading?
