The exploit limera1n uses was fixed in the iBoot revision found in iOS 4. Chronic Dev Team officialy anounces that, in order to keep SHAtter undisclosed and possibly preserve it for 5th generation devices, greenpois0n would be delayed in order to incorporate this new exploit limera1n uses. He prompts Chronic Dev Team to use his exploit instead of SHAtter , but, since greenpois0n is already scheduled to October 10, it may be not possible.
Geohot ETA’d his limera1n release to October 11, if greenpois0n can’t be changed to use this new exploit. This decision, however, would burn 2 bootrom exploits: SHAtter itself and the one used by limera1n , which is unpatchable by firmware updates.

While there’s only so much Apple can do to optimize its software for old hardware, we hoped it would improve the iPhone 4’s performance enough to make things pleasant for people squeezing another year out of their phones.
