iPhone No Jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2 or 3.2.2

iPhone Dev Team noted that there will be no jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2 (iPhone/iPod) or iOS 3.2.2 (iPad) — JailbreakMe 2.0 Star was a huge success and it was able to jailbreak mostly all firmwares with a PDF exploit found in MobileSafari, but Apple fixed that quickly on iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2.
Now it’s a few weeks later, and Apple has closed the jailbreakme.com hole. They’re shipping devices with FW 4.0.2/3.2.2, impervious to this particular jailbreak. So now, people will begin to ask: will there be a jailbreak for devices that shipped with 4.0.2/3.2.2, out of the box?

No, there won’t be. FW 4.0.2/3.2.2 was *only* released to fix the jailbreakme hole. With FW 4.1 still in its beta stages, it makes no sense to escalate the “cat & mouse” with Apple for FW updates that only fix the jailbreak holes. To quote WOPR, “the only winning move is not to play”.

Those of you who backed up your SHSH Blobs for 4.0/4.0.1/3.2.1 — you’re safe and you’ll always be able to use JailbreakMe 2.0.
