Counter Strike: Apple Fires Back at Jailbreakers!
ZOMG! Apple has fought back! The only way Apple can fix the exploit that the iPhone Dev Team has been using to Jailbreak iPhone's and iPod Touch's (check out our forums for more on that) is to fix their hardware, but it seems Apple has figured out a way to program iTunes 8 to detect and prevent the Pwnage exploit.
Apple may have won that battle but they have not won the war. The Dev Team reacted promptly:
blockquote>"The nice thing about iTunes decisions is that we can provide you with patches to counter them. We have one such patch already for Mac iTunes 8 for iPod touch. We’ll be working out the full suite of patches for all the combinations over the next week."
So take heed fellow Jailbreakers... it is not wise to jump all over that 2.1 firmware update coming this Friday. Best to wait it out until the Dev Team puts out that patch. Again this warning is for Jailbreakers only.
