    Thought this might be apt as the deluge of iPhones hits the world today. The only update I would add is that there is already a tethered but complicated jailbreak for A4 and older devices out there, but it is very un-official.

    Interesting.

    Especially the 'needs geohot' line. Also this is not one of the dev teams sites so take this info with a grain of salt.

    This is true, but Absynthe is a pretty big player, and I think their thinking is pretty rational. I, for one, will be watching to see how the jailbreak for the iPhone 4 works out.

    Well with chpwn twit last afternoon it seems things look nice for the iPhone 5.
    Since I'm skipping the iPhone5/iPad4 altogether, I expect to be running iOS6 on my A5* devices pretty soon.

    The nice thing is that with every new iteration of iOS new things get added and the need for jailbreak lowers (e.g Photo attachments on mail app!!!), of course, I don't know if I could live without my iFile/Activator/Springtomize at the very least.

    Kind of a sad state of affairs considering iPhone 4 users are the least likely to even want iOS 6.
