Comex Releases Security Patch for JailbreakMe 3.0 in Cydia

Late last night JailbreakMe 3.0 went live around the globe, allowing all iOS devices on iOS 4.3.3 to be jailbroken. The method to jailbreak your device relies on a malware exploit via an infected PDF. This gaping security hole does not have an unofficial fix from Apple yet (it will come in the next firmware update), but @comex has released one for everyone in Cydia.

Download PDF Patcher 2 to Fix the PDF Exploit

Here’s how to patch this exploit:

1. Launch Cydia. Search for ‘PDF Patcher 2’ and install it. Once it’s installed, no new icons will be added to your homescreen or options available. It’s a patch that just needs to be installed.

I suggest everyone with a jailbroken device via JailbreakMe.com to install this right away.
