Apple’s latest iOS 4 update dropped yesterday, which “fixes a security vulnerability with certificate validation.” Jailbreakers were initially advised not to update to the latest firmware, but as long as you’re happy with a tethered jailbreak for the foreseeable future, you’re safe to go ahead and update your device and then jailbreak with the latest RedSn0w release.

Apple released its promised iOS 4.3.4 software towards the end of last week to fix a security vulnerability in mobile Safari that made the latest JailbreakMe exploit possible. It goes without saying, then, that updating your device will eliminate the possibility of jailbreaking with JailbreakMe, but it will also kill all other untethered jailbreaks too!
Apple may have just released iOS 5 Beta 3 today, but the Dev Team never rests, and the beta has already been jailbroken using the popular tool, RedSn0w. The mouse hasn’t exactly gotten the cat by the tail this time around, though. If you jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 3, prepare to give up all of your third-party App Store apps as punishment.
In honour of the final day of this year’s WWDC today, the iPhone Dev-Team may have a little treat in store for those of you have are running the first iOS 5 beta.
It took the iPhone Dev-Team less than 24 hours to successfully perform a tethered jailbreak of the first iOS 5 beta, but hopes that an untethered jailbreak would be developed before iOS 5 goes public later this year have now been crushed.
Wow! That was fast. The first beta release of Apple’s iOS 5 firmware hasn’t even been available for 24 hours yet, and it has already been successfully jailbroken.
