    Download it. It protects your iPhone from malicious codes using the PDF Exploit

    If you jailbroke your Iphone 4 the process in which that was done was you go to the website slide the bar and it used a pdf to do the jailbreaking.

    LUCKILY the person who figured this jailbreak out just wanted us to jailbreak. If someone wanted to do something harmful using this same process they could.

    Apple is releasing a new firmware that fixes this. If you update you will not be able to jailbreak.

    if you download the cydia version you will keep your jailbreak but protect your iphone from anyone using a similar way to get into your phones buisness.

    The PDF exploit can allow hackers into your iphone/ipod/ipad and steal information from it, by installing the patch, it closes the exploit which protects the devices from hackers without doing a itunes update

    no the hole was in the standard apple firmware itself. it is what allowed the jailbreak to happen in the first place.

    thats correct, but the patch fixes the hole in which apple had without affecting the jailbreak
