Is Verizon iPhone on iOS 4.2.6 Susceptible to Limera1n Exploit?

Moments ago, Apple seeded iOS 4.2.6 to public for Verizon’s CDMA iPhone 4 ahead of its launch date, that is February 10th, 2011.


Now the real question is that whether iOS 4.2.6 is vulnerable to Geohot’s Limera1n exploit or not? MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team thinks it probably is:

MuscleNerd: If the i4 crypto engine couldn’t get those, it would have been bad sign for limera1n. But it did, so there’s still hope.

Cause If it isn’t, then Verizon iPhone 4 users wont be able to jailbreak until and unless someone finds another bootrom exploit in the new hardware.

MuscleNerd: @damon_taylor If limera1n is still there, it means at *least* tethered JB on 0-day (and for those who buy early, forever)

We will of course get to know more about this come February 10th. Till then, stay tuned.
