its just a rumor but it could be true i gues.
We already knew this!! Wragg is posting old news, jeez
PS: He got his info from these very forums, fanjita said this himself in our 2.71 downgrader thread
He's also jumping the gun somewhat, mostly in the interpretation of "soon".
As has been mentioned before - an eloader will come soon for the TIFF exploit. To expect decent 2.71 support (and especially kernel support) immediately would be naive.
2.7+ is very hard to work with, it's being worked on but you can't expect a high level of compatibility very soon.
Kernel support is being worked on, but it will still take some time. All this TIFF stuff has somewhat interrupted a lot of the kernel work.
Having said that, any eloader that is produced should support the kernel exploit in firmwares that the eloader can support, and that the kernel exploit is present in (i.e. 2.5 - 2.71). So tricks that already use the kernel exploit (like the downdater) will be possible - but again, they may require some adaptation, possibly.
