Hackers have recently begun exploring the capabilities of the Apple Watch. The wearable gadget launched in the USA and a number of other countries on April 24th has already been hacked to run a web browser. Below you may take a look at the short video showing Google’s start page right on the screen of the smartwatch. Although using a web-browser on a device with the screen size like this does not seem a very convenient thing, the fact remains: you can use a browser on your Apple Watch.
A well-known member of the jailbreak community nicknamed Winocm will soon start working at Apple. As he tweeted a couple of hours ago, he’ll take up his new duties “later this year”. As to his position at the company, it remains unknown.
iOS 7 has been jailbroken. Popular iOS developer Ryan Petrich has posted a screenshot which appears to show Activator running on iOS 7.
Earlier today Petrich tweeted saying, "System version too new?". Alongside the tweet was the picture below. The picture shows the Springboard of an iPod touch with an Activator icon and a UIAlert window which reads:
System Version Too New
Activator has not been tested to work with this version of iOS. Some features may not work as designed.
Notably, this alert does not seem to be a UIAlert that could be generated from within a sandboxed application, suggesting that device may be jailbroken.

The founder of Jailbreakme.com Comex has said on Twitter that he is joining Apple as an intern. Site JailbreakMe.com greatly facilitates jailbreaking for users. He said about the hiring on Twitter:
“It's been really, really fun, but it's also been a while and I've been getting bored. So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple”.
The iPhone Dev-Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.8b3 which can perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.4. This means that you will have to connect your device to a computer and run redsn0w each time you restart.
For the convenience of kernel hackers like @comex and @i0n1c, we have a new redsn0w 0.9.8b3 that supports a TETHERED jailbreak for iOS 4.3.4 on all devices that have 4.3.4 except the iPad2. The vast majority of people will want to stay back at 4.3.3 because that's where the untethered jailbreak is! There are no new features in 4.3.4 - only fixes for jailbreak exploits.
Also, this is a good time to remind everyone (since we're still seeing confusion about this): iPad2 owners with a baseband (3G or CDMA) cannot currently use saved blobs to go back to 4.3.3 once the signing window is closed. This is unlike every other device, so don't be confused! iPad2 owners with basebands should stay away from all updates to maintain your jailbreak!
This jailbreak works with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G. It does not work with iPad 2.
Apple today released iOS 4.3.4 to block the recent jailbreak released by comex. Do not update if you want to remain jailbroken.

Comex's jailbreak based on new PDF exploit was unofficially leaked recently. It looks like it will be released quite soon. Currently
The new jailbreak is mostly for Apple iPad 2 users, because all other devices can be jailbroken with existing tools.
Comex's jailbreak for the iPad 2 has been stolen from secret website and later published on different sites. The jailbreak uses a PDF exploit similar to how JailbreakMe worked in the past.
User AppReviewerWill even posted a video showing working iPad 2 jailbreak on iOS 4.3. The video is currently unavailable.
This is quite sad, because now Apple is aware of the vulnerability and will probably release the fixed iOS 4.3.4. If now this will be fixed in iOS 5 for sure.
We strongly suggest that you wait for official release by Comex. Now you should just save your SHSH blobs using
Hacker Comex has updated JailbreakMe.com site, which might mean that much anticipated iPad 2 jailbreak is on its way.
