With pod2g ( iPhone Dev-team member ) announcing the exploit in the boot ROM of iOS devices. He also states that Apple will not be able to stop the hackers unless hardware changes are made.
Venture Beats, Dean Takahashi adds that hackers almost immediately try to jailbreak any new release from Apple with the intention of running unauthorized software. He adds that over a million owners having already jailbroken their devices in order to get apps from other sources rather than paying for them through Apple’s iTunes Store.
Darren Allan of Tech Watch gives a similar account of the speed in which hackers have operated on the latest Apple device. But does say that there is still alot of work to be done before a functioning jailbreak is ready, though it wont take long. He does give a simple solution for Apple, and that is to let users run whatever they want on their iPhones.
