Should this and the A4 page be merged? They're practically the same in content. --Dialexio 17:18, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
- A4 is just the public name for the s5l8930, no? I say we merge it and make A4 redirect to this page, with a /very minor/ explanation on why it redirects you to this page. ~Drake
- This was from when the pages were separate entities. The problem has since been resolved. :) --Dialexio 04:13, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
Is there an iBoot exploit?
Geohot got the iPad to boot verbosely, and the VFDecrypt and other fun keys.
This almost certainly means there is an iboot/llb exploit out there, no? Can the keys be gotten with just a tethered bootrom exploits?

it could be possible he found a bootrom exploit that was pwnage 2 like however the real pwnage exploits the unchecked LLB but apple could have made a mistake with the new shsh check --liamchat 19:20, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
Are we sure that geohot even had an untethered bootrom exploit? He had denied that "pwned4life" or whatever it was was real. LiNK 02:07, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
UPDATED:There /is/ a bootrom exploit. It's probably tethered (for now). It's a code-execution exploit, as you can't get keys without executing code. Hope this helps. ~Drake
- A bootrom exploit tethered or untethered can be used to boot verbosely, SIDEBAR: people take tethered/untethered as meaning far too much, all tethered/untethered means is you need to plug in to something to boot, it has absolutely NO bearing on any other capability --Lilstevie 14:26, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
New Untethered Kernel Exploit?
http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/1197198297/shattered-ipod-touch-4g If you look closely in this video, upon respring there is some distortion in the top left corner. I'm guessing there is another one of those Spirit/Star type exploits in one of the frameworks that allows some shellcode to get stuck into the framebuffer to provide an untethered jailbreak... Which is awesome... Iemit737 22:59, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
That's not correct at all. :/ It has to do with the exploit itself, not the program that is used to jailbreak. LiNK 22:40, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
The problem is not really with pwnageTool because they said they got the touch 4G to restore a custom IPSW. The issue is getting a nice exploit for the main boot chain that's not tethered Iemit737 22:08, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
