Apple Releases iOS 4.0.2 For iPhone, iPod Touch And iOS 3.2.2 For iPad To Fix Security Vulnerability Used By JailbreakMe


iPhone 4

Apple has just released iOS 4.0.2 for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G along with iOS 3.2.2 for iPad.

iOS 4.0.2 fixes the security vulnerability in iOS 4 and iOS 4.0.1 that was used by JailbreakMe 2.0 – the web-based to jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

According to the release notes, iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.2.2 includes fixes for the security vulnerability associated with viewing malicious PDF files.

Experts had raised concern that the security vulnerability in iOS could be exploited in a similar way by malicious websites to install malware.

If you have or planning to jailbreak and/or unlock your iPhone then you should NOT upgrade to iOS 4.0.2 as you will not be able to use JailbreakMe 2.0 to jailbreak it again.

iPhone Dev Team has also issued a warning:

iOS 4.0.2 is out. Don't accept it! Please wait for further details.

IPlease also remember that by not applying the patch it exposes you to the security hole. So if you plan to wait for iPhone Dev Team or Comex to provide an update then you can install PDF Loading warner – jailbreak app from Cydia to prevent malicious sites from using the security hole.

But if you don’t care about jailbreaking or unlocking your iPhone then you can update your iPhone with iOS 4.0.2 via iTunes.

We’ll let you know as soon as we’ve any further updates. So stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    no update for me …

  • iOS4

    Please stay away from the updates if you are not an official carrier or need your jailbreak. Also pass on to your friends and family that are too clicky to stay away.

    When is the iPhone 4 Proximity sensor issue fix is coming out? That's my only problem now.

  • j

    just updated phone

  • nastyy

    question –

    what if i ordered an iphone 4. it will probably come with 4.0.2. how do i jailbreak?

  • SiLeNcEbOnE

    I doubt it will come with 4.0.2, the ios has just been released. The phone has been on the market for a while now. Newly build phones would probably come with it.

    Just update my old iphone 3g. In Settings >>General>>You'll see new setting for "Home Button". you can choose for (only one)
    1.home
    2.Search
    3.Phone Favorites
    4.Camera
    5.Ipad
    It's work when you Double-click the Home Button.
    FYI Spotlight Search in same setting in Home Button

  • Desperat Dan

    We can still downgrade to 4.0.1 if we have ssh saved can't we?

  • Harsha

    Thanks but no thanks…
    I wonder how fast they come up with updates to beat the jailbreakers.. i guess, not the same with their own issues like sensor issues, and other..huhh..

  • D3@th

    Apple doesn't seems to give up 🙂

  • FredMc

    oh shit, I am picking up an iPhone 4 today…will it let me sync to iTunes without updating the iOS?

  • Mark

    Cydia just released Ultrasn0w 1.1-1 which improves battery performance in stand-by mode for the iphone. If I update my Ultrasn0w from Cydia, will this effect my jb and unlocked iphone and will I have to re-jail break and unlocke again? Will my contact lists and apps be effected?

  • Z

    probably yea, you'll be ok

  • cave

    dont update its pretty simple

  • F***Apple

    Fuck Apple, let us do whatever we want, you know that is going to take your warrenty off,
    I hope Jailbreakers will beat these fuckers everytime
    Love JB 4ever

  • KillerCheeze

    Who really gives a fuck? Enjoy your wank.

  • Coldstone

    First=Virgin. Coincidence?

  • Sean

    He was referring to updating Ultrasnow, not the iOS, Way off topic thou, and sorry, I don't know the answer.

  • Sean

    According to MuscleNerd, iPhone3G and ipt2G(non-MC) are safe to upgrade. See here for details:

    I was just about to update from 3.1.3 to 4.0.1 today. Is there a way I can still do that and not go all the way to the newest version?

  • Cooper

    No.

  • Db

    Can I restore to 4.0.1 and then just reinstall my apps and redo my settings? I would just need to download the 4.0.1 firmware right?

  • Yes you can restore to iOS 4.0.1 till Apple keeps signing them after that you will need the SHSH blobs to downgrade.

  • Moodi

    You are totally right F*** Apple .
    Our Dev-Team will keep kicking their Ass until they stop the shit they are doing . Don't worry Body Jailbrakers will beat them .

    Victory for JB and Dev-team

  • Propain111

    If anyone on iPhone 3G has upgraded to 4.0.2 have you noticed any performance improvements or is it just to patch the PDF deal? If not ima just wait till apple gets off their asses and fix it!

  • Big Ern

    Apple is still signing 4.0.1 at this very moment, for who knows how long. Back them up while you can.

  • I wanna update soon

  • Maplepie

    You got that right

  • Crazy Man

    You can upgrade to 4.0.1 if you have your shsh save on cydia. Just locate the 4.0.1 firmware nd do a restore via shift click and select your file and you will be ok. follow this guide. http://lifehacker.com/5572003/how-to-downgrade-your-iphone-3g%5Bs%5D-from-ios-4-to-ios-313 copy of recboot: http://lifehacker.com/5572003/how-to-downgrade-your-iphone-3g%5Bs%5D-from-ios-4-to-ios-313

  • AdamsMoon

  • radicaled321

    I can confirm that after updating to 4.0.2 on my 3G in dfu mode then jailbreaking with redsn0w while only ticking cydia then installing features there is improvement in apps opening and general icon scrolling animation looks and feels nice and zippy ^_~

  • Naco

    Would like it if Apple fixed my damn Google maps so that my current location isn't displayed elsewhere… Anyone else have this problem?

  • Playafied

    If you're jailbroken and want to patch the PDF exploit without having to update, saurik has made a patch on cydia. It's named PDF Patch. Search it in cydia

  • Thank you Crazy man!

    I am still using the iphone 3GS OS 3.1.3. I am not in a hurry to upgrade to iOS 4, because I heard that, with extra features such as multitasking(which I doubt I will ever use), the iOS 4 performance is actually worse than OS 3.1.3. So I think the OS 3.1.3 is very stable and fast, best for iphone 3GS.
