    Title, and when do you expect for it to be patched?

    Yep... that is the only reason we will have another update before 4.0 most likely. Maybe for the iPad because 4.0 isn't coming until the summer is over, but probably for the iPod/iPhone devices.

    Any jailbreak exploit can be easily patched to date.

    a userland jailbreak like this can easily be patched via software update. a bootrom level vulnerability/exploit cannot be patched without Apple shipping new devices with a new bootrom which lacked the vulnerability.

    I just ordered my 16gb WiFi Ipad. I just hope that when they do release a patch, it wont be included in my new Ipad

    I doubt they'll release a patch that soon. You should be fine.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I was on the fence of getting one, but as soon as I saw Spirit released I ordered. It should be fine, but you never know.

    Yeah..I just ordered it today and it says that it will be delivered between the 12th and 16th..a patch is something you have to download right, its not something they put into the IPad before shipping..if a patch comes out and it comes included in the Ipad I will just send it back and not even open it..without it being jailbroken its worthless to me
