    Just wondering, whats the point? If they are gonna use a userland exploit anyway, and you cant have custom boot/recovery logos?

    because now all the devices can be jailbroken for life no matter what which would be way better then a simple userland exploit

    With Bootrom/iBoot jailbreaks all devices with this particular bootrom are pwned4life and future iOS upgrades will only require a small recode to make limera1n, greenpois0n and Pwnage Tool work. Howeve, comex may need to supply a new userland exploit each time as Apple may close the hole associated with them, though @musclenerd said on twitter that he has a 'growing list' of vulnerabilities to be exploited.
