The first iOS 4 update available in iTunes, jailbreak still on the menu

The first iOS 4 update available in iTunes, jailbreak still on the menu
The iOS 4.0.1 update that hit iTunes last night “improves the formula to determine how many bars of signal strength to display”. It doesn't seem to do anything else for now, and is available for the iPhone 4, the 3GS and the 3G, too. It also doesn't affect the jailbreaking procedure on the iPhone 3G with iOS 4, so it is safe to assume no additional precautions are inserted by Apple into the 4.0.1 edition.

This makes all users who are waiting for a jailbreaking solution for the iPhone 4 and the 3GS remain optimistic, as iOS 4.0.1 hasn't hindered the efforts of the usual suspects (cough, Comex, cough, iPhone Dev Team), working on an iOS 4 exploit, to deliver the jailbreak. Developers got the more feature-filled iOS 4.1 update the other day, and this one might be a tougher nut to crack by the time it is released on iTunes, if Apple closes the exploit.
