i've been doing research and it appears everyone across the mac and iPhone world are asking the same question "does the 10.5.7 update fix the dfu mode bug?". well nobody has confirmed it as of yet, so i guess only time will tell. i would guess we'll have our answer in a couple days. i'll keep this thread updated once i find some concrete information one way or the other.

nice first post.


even though you have instant credibility just from signing up here, putting up an avatar, and making a post consisting of a few words. could you please cite whatever source has helped you arrive at this claim?

because re-jailbreaking is a PITA.

why haven't YOU tried it yet?

i would be happy to update my macbook pro to 10.5.7 and restore my iPhone and then test this out by rejailbreaking. the problem is i'm too lazy to get a usb hub in case it does not work. if anyone wants to get me one i'll be happy to test it out and if it does work i'll send the hub back to you.

MuscleNerd posted on twitter saying it was safe; safer to jailbreak on 10.5.7 than 10.5.6 cause the DFU bug was fixed.

I can verify that DFU works on 10.5.7 as well :)

I just restored, updated to 2.2.1, and rejailbroke.
