Apple [AAPL] released the latest version of their iPhone and iPod Touch OS yesterday, iOS 4.1. The update was designed to fix a number of security bugs as well as bring new features and enhancements to iOS.
Just a couple of hours after Apple released iOS 4.1, hackers have already found a security hole, that can be used to run a jailbreak on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The hole was found by pod2g, a member of the iPhone Dev Team, and it has subsiquently been confirmed by other members of the iPhone Dev Team.
According to the hackers, this new exploit is going to be hard for Apple to close, as it targets a low level part of the operating system, and Apple wont be able to stop the jailbreakers without making some hardware changes.
There are no details as yet on when the iPhone Dev Team will release the jailbreak for iOS 4.1, as soon as we get more information we will let you guys know.
