Comex Releases ‘PDF Patcher 2′ to Fix Security Exploit in iOS 4.3.3

by on July 6th, 2011

Late last evening Comex released his much anticipated JailbreakMe 3.0, another other the air jailbreak that is achieved through a PDF vulnerability via Mobile Safari. The biggest news was this release marked the first jailbreak for the iPad 2.

The PDF exploit Comex used to jailbreak your iPad or iDevice, is also a gaping security hole that allows users to take over your device. To close this exploit, Comex has released ‘PDF Patcher 2‘ via Cydia.

Just search for this in Cydia, and install it. Since this is a patch install, there won’t be any settings or icons on your Homescreen.

    I used redsn0w to jailbreak my iPhone. Would I need to install PDF Patcher 2 on my phone too?

    Thanks! I’m on 4.3.3 & I have patched both my iPhone 4 & iPad 2.

    Maybe it’s unrelated, but after installing this patch on my iphone I was getting sync errors with iTunes.. No errors on my iPad 2 though.. So maybe it’s unrelated.  Just finishing a restore re-jailbreak now…
