    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".

    Looks good. Will it be for Mac, Windows, or both?

    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

    The current jailbreak does not currently work on OTB (Out of the Box) 3GS if it has 3.1 on it. This will fix that.

    Once the 3.1 OTB JB is complete will this enable us to unlock?

    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
