Redsn0w_jailbreak_for_iOS_4_3_4.JPG

No sooner has Apple released iOS 4.3.4 to plug the iOS security hole used by JailbreakMe.com, Redmond Pie reports that the iPhone Dev Team has released an update for Redsn0w, which it says will be able to tether jailbreak the majority of iOS devices running iOS 4.3.4. Unfortunately the iPad 2 is not currently supported by the update, however. According to Redmond Pie, the new update should only take a “few minutes to get Cydia up and running.” Redmond Pie has full instructions to help you install the new update via the link below. Redmond Pie also warns that if you are using a carrier unlock, you should avoid Redsn0w as it will revert your jailbreak. Go for PwnageTools bundles instead. As ever, you’ll find plenty of help in our forums regarding this latest news, so be sure to check them out for all the very latest help and tips from the experts. [/FONT]

But what is the point in all this anyway? Is it to patch all holes possible in the 5 prevent it to be jailbreakable?

it was to patch up the pdf exploit used on the jailbreakme site that gave any one root access using .pdf files and its something that made apple release a new firmware half way through the stages of the ios 5 beta, i have never seen apple do that for a jailbreak hole.
