    Currently this is all the info I can get, but isn't it obvious what it is. It's a tethered jailbreak that stays when you update, so your iphone is always jailbroken

    No. It just means that they wont ever have to look for a way to jailbreak inside the software anymore, instead they can just use the hardware DFU mode directly with every firmware. This is nice because we will then allways be able with these newer devices to install custom firmware, currently with the newer ones its only posiple if the device is allready jailbroken... i wonder if this also breaks Apple's SHSH system?

    Hmm and since it got the name "SHAtter" i asume they found a bug in the way that Apple signerature checks the firmware files while in DFU mode? Kinda like the old certificate stack smash.

    It's not known whether it is tethered or not.

    Every time Apple updates, this exploit stays, but I think they have to release something to untether it. I'm not sure about this...
    But anyway, low level boot access = [​IMG] . Custom boot logos and verbose on iPad
    There should really be an iDevice smiley

    It was on the wiki that it's tethered but the wikis disappeared, the only way apple can patch it is to release new hardware
