    Lets say a userland exploit is found (talking about the 2g). i know we wont be able to run our applications because of the kernel signature checking, but it should still be possible to change images correct? or are those also signed by apple? my other question is would it be possible to hex edit some files too? Or would that also not pass the signature checks?

    Userland exploits are no good. Even to change images, you would need to use bin utils, AFC, or SSH. All of which require the use of files, which would be killed by the kernel at execution.

    So, no, sorry.

    well hold on there...

    hex editting applications, well, they are signed, so the kernel check out fail and the application would not start

    replacing files / images, however, would work. See, AFC is actually a daemon that iTunes uses, it is not a custom jb thing. So this can definitely be utilized with the afc2 hack to replace anything you want. Images are not signed, so you can manually install a theme if you really wanted, same with sounds. hell, if you manually uploaded the plists for it one by one, you could install the extended preferences hack, as they are just replacing plists, not binaries.
