The article states that he managed to find a new exploit, which is not true. It is the same exploit. He also didn't say that it will work for "all versions ever".

Ooh, an ETA of 2 days 2 days ago would make that tonight over here. I do hope so. Luckily for me though, just because I want to, and not that I need to.

I want to customise my phone, as the HTC Hero is turning my head, and I am sick of the bastardisation Apple have enforced upon us, i.e. not being able to set my phone up how I want it.

Once I can do what I like, I will be content again, as I will be safe in the knowledge that I have the best mobile phone out there!

Not looking good! Check the news site I linked a few posts ago. Looks like they've had a big ruck and geohot has said he's not going to release a break :"(

Why is Geohot working on a 3.1 jailbreak if the Dev Team already released their tool that does it....? Thanks

If you read the tweets, if I understand them, he is struggling to get this to work.

So, those of you holding your breath and banking on his 2 day promise, take a few deep breaths.

We shall see.

Edit: As I predicted -----> From GeoHot's twitter -----> i'm sorry to say the release won't be tonight though, still got 4 more devices to make it work on...and a little remaining problem with ipt3

hmm... I wonder if we'll see any lawsuits coming since it wasn't released in "2 days" like AT$T's MMS release :D
