    Has there been a known exploit for the iPad yet concerning OpeniBoot? I dont own an iPad, but it would be interesting to know.

    There probably will be one for 4.0.

    The iDroid community is playing it safe right now to see if the upcoming 4.0 firmware will restrict the openiboot exploit. That's why iDroid has been quite slow recently. If it doesn't restrict the exploit then expect to see more releases.

    Not necessarily waste a hardware exploit, but they have to reprogram it for 4.0. Thus making a waste of effort to port it to 3.2.

    Just imagine jailbreak being ported right now for the iPad 3.2 when 4.0 is down the line.

    Also this may sound retarded, but the feature to do unlock/jailbreak your iPhone has been disabled by software updates so couldn't they do the same with openiboot?

    They can only fix a bootrom exploit with new hardware, NOT with new software. The exploit will be still there, if 4.0 is not jailbreakable(the first week at max I think) that is because the security put in the software, once they get past that, a untethered jailbreak for all bootrom exploitable devices is easy..

    Yea that's what I kind meant to say, however we need to have the untethered jailbreak first.
