Verizon iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.6 Still Vulnerable To Limera1n Exploit
Back on January 11th, 2011, Apple announced the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 in a special event and mentioned the fact it is available for purchase starting February 10th, 2011. During the Verizon event, we had seen the Verizon iPhone 4 running on iOS 4.2.5 and today Apple seeded iOS 4.2.6 on their servers for the Verizon iPhone 4.
The Verizon iPhone 4 for iOS 4.2.6 is available for download from the Apple server, however the interesting thing to know is whether the new update has patched the limera1n bootrom exploit or not. As per MuscleNerd’s latest tweet, Version 4.2.6 still looks vulnerable to the Limera1n exploit:
MuscleNerd: If the i4 crypto engine couldn’t get those, it would have been bad sign for limera1n. But it did, so there’s still hope.
Verizon iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.6 jailbreak hugely depends on Limera1n exploit (considering SHAtter bootrom is leaked and patched), if its not patched then within weeks we will see jailbreak solution, if it is then we will have to wait till a new exploit for Verizon iPhone 4 is discovered.
MuscleNerd: @damon_taylor If limera1n is still there, it means at *least* tethered JB on 0-day (and for those who buy early, forever)
