    Ok I know another thread exist with the same subject but it is talking about postings on this form and not about 7.7.1. We have all read that apple has just said that 7.7.1 is a bug fix.

    My question is has anyone who has 7.7.1 been able to upload a jailbroken firmware to there devices using the new itunes or seen any other behavior that could have a negative or positive impact on anyone who is using the any of the Jailbreak process?

    Thank you in advance.

    Apple could make 7.7.1 only upload valid flash files. It would be easy for them to check if when you hit shift and the restore button if the file your picking is the one THEY approve. I was wondering if they have done this or anything else like this in 7.7.1.

    I have 7.7.1 and have restored to a custom firmware easily. The new update has no affect on jailbreaking 2.0. So no worries.

    All they need to do is a quick MD5 check, then validate whether or not it is a genuine firmware or not. Really not that hard to do.

    an md5 check would be ok, but how would they verify it if you turned off your internet connection?

    Well they could always build it into iTunes, but that would leave it open to hackers, which would mean bigger trouble for apple.

    This is what pwning does... It makes it always say "Yes" to any firmware.
