iTunes 8.2 breaks jailbreaking

The iPhone Dev Team reports that iTunes 8.2 breaks the jailbreaking process and warns users interested in jailbreaking not to upgrade their iTunes.

Apple, Inc.
Apple recently released iTunes 8.2 and, as expected, the update disables jailbreaking. As a result, the iPhone Dev Team issued a warning to users about updating:

This update is one of those that incidentally breaks QuickPwn and PwnageTool. It doesn't seem like an anti-jailbreak. But nonetheless, it will break your ability to re-run QuickPwn or PwnageTool's dfu-entry.

The iPhone Dev Team has a fix planned, but it will not be available until Apple publicly releases Firmware 3.0.
