Oh stop it already!
Apple is making another feeble attempt to shut out jailbreakers around the world. MobileCrunch informs us that iTunes has seen another update today and it’s reportedly preventing jailbreaking and tethered jailbreaking for all iPhone users.
As it turns out, most of the issues with jailbreakers is when they try to sync their iPhones with the new iTunes 9.1. But only if you are using blackra1n and are running Windows on your computer. iPhone hacker ih8snow claims you should not experience any issues if you are using OS X to sync your iPhone.
So should iPhone hackers be shaking in their boots over this? Of course not. The jailbreaking community has seen many updates come and go with both iTunes and iPhone software. It truly has not stopped us in the past, so why should this be any different now? Just don’t update. I repeat, don’t update to the newest version of iTunes.
There, problem solved!
Tell us what your thoughts are regarding this new update. Are you concerned? Or is this newest update really that important?
Update: Redmondpie is now reporting that a fix has already been found. ih8snow delivers us the fix in the form of BlackBreeze. Just as we have seen in the past, Apple tries to take make it difficult for jailbreakers and then they find a solution.
