    I've got an iPhone 4 running firmware 4.0. I haven't backed up my shsh things and now 4.0.1 is out. I would like to be able to jailbreak my device in the near future. Does the update kill any known exploits for the iPhone 4?

    The update fixes nothing

    it only swaps some graphics of the signal bar to fool users into thinking their signal is stronger -.-
    apple is making BS. not even the baseband was changed so nothing to worry about

    //EDIT: but from now on stay on 4.0.1 and save your SHSH strings

    unlikely.... since the jailbreak exploit hasn't been released, there's no way of patching. so the 4.0 exploit will likely to work on 4.0.1

    YES, it does!!! If you update now, you have to wait until the next JB is released which exploits the iOS 4.0.1

    4.0.1 Does NOT kill any exploits found on fw 4.0
    By the time devs release a jailbreak for 3rd gen devices and the iPhone 4 the tools will be ported to work on 4.0.1 with small to zero effort

    I'm confused. Will it fix it or won't it. I'm unable to save my shsh things now. Is it save to update and still be able to jailbreak. This comes from musclenerds twitter : "yes the upcoming new JB from @comex will be untethered and for all 4.x devices". Does that mean the jailbreak will work on 4.0.1?

    It changes the signal formula. The ipod touch doesn't have a cellular network
