    Well, IOS4.3.1 just around the corner. Promised unlock after IOS4.3 release nowhere to be seen. Do you think we've seen the end of jailbreaks and unlocks?

    Absolutely not. Work is progressing on an untethered 4.3 jailbreak as we speak, it can already be jailbroken. I'd imagine with 4.3.1 imminent nothing will happen until after that point. Best to keep Apple in the dark about any exploits so as not to waste them.

    Unlocks are another story entirely. I don't think we've seen the last of Ultrasn0w but I do think the release cycle will slow.

    Spoken like someone who has owned an iphone for a month and only just learned what jailbreaking and unlocking means.

    Yes, that’s it. Apple finally figured us out. Oh noooooo!

    Not that I was leaning one way or the other, just interesting that we're near another IOS update of which should require Dev folks to once more, put on the breaks. Maybe this is one of Apple's tactics, get the word out of upcoming update and make them frequent.

    I don't think there will be an end to jailbreak or unlocks for a long time at least. It's fact to say the release is getting longer and longer though.

    Point taken. But when you say slow; how different is slow vs losing ability to unlock. Are phones such a piece of tech that they have infinite holes and can always be unlocked?

    Far from truth. 1st gen iPhone owner, have had iPhone 4 since mid-January when I did the trade-in from 3GS. I'm currently stationed abroad, just looking to one day pull the sim card from my Nokia and use the 4.

    True, lets be honest here, back in the day, quick as Apple dropped an update, break & unlock quickly followed. So doesn't that mean Apple is getting the upper hand.

    I ask; how many times of your home being broken into before you eventually close all means. The point here is, the iPhone is Apple's product, sure it gets broken / unlocked, but wouldn't Apple eventually get the upper hand, completely.

    Maybe Dev hackers are sick of all the whinny bastards out there! ;) they decided to have lives instead. :eek: this is what I think will eventually kill the hacking scene. :( keep in mind there is 400-500mb of code to go though with he update looking for a hole in the program. Apple also learns from the hackers as well as the other way. it's on thing to find a exploit quite another to write software so any idiot can use it. they said a 4.3 jb was coming out end of the week, I gonna say postponed till 4.3.1 update in a week or two.

    Good God, that's some terrible English right there.

    I think the jb scene is just as active as it was before (im including tethered jailbreaks). Unlocks have always been rare but apparently with the newest iPhone, we may only see one per device. They are always more difficult to do.

    Wow, it's like im talking to a child.


    And for the record, im not particularly picky about these things but your post was just awful. A few misspelled words or lack of punctuation/capitalization is perfectly fine.

    But what you wrote is an ugly mix of smiley faces and run-on sentences that make no sense. Oh, and

    punctuation; Learn? To. Use, It!

    No.

    It's a double edge sword for Apple.

    On one hand a user unlocking the phone frees them to enjoy features that Apple does not offer. Thereby removing Apples control over the device, a real problem for Apple on a variety of levels. In this context it's something Apple dislikes.

    On the other hand, putting a stop to it would alienate Apple enthusiasts that buy Apples computers and other products. Upsetting these people would not be very wise.

    In addition sooner or later one can generally hack into any system, at least as far as we've witnessed to date. If Apple announced it was no longer possible, that would provide the highest level of motivation any hacker would need to redouble his or her efforts to gain access.

    It's the users desire to have complete control over the iPhone.

    Jailbreaking satisfies the tech enthusiasts craving for a customized Apple phone.

    Ironically it's that same desire to customize, that Apple lovers criticize about those who prefer Android.

    Good points. I'm just one of many personnel that own the iPhone, stationed overseas simply looking to use it with local companies then once back stateside, plop our ATT and/or Verizon sim cards back in.

    Kind of ironic that you're fighting so they can keep their freedom yet they lock your phone down so you can't use it during the fight.

    Its a chat room not a formal letter. I'm pretty sure the IQ level of this forum is above normal especially labman. This is the equivalent of speaking casually.

    Take jailbreak out of his post and he'd be quite sane.

    It would be foolish of anyone to think unlocking will be reliable going forward through new generations of the phone when it seems almost certain we will have went from iPhone 4 to 5+ without one.

    Still waiting for Musclenerd to save the day. :eek:

    Mainly because if they release a jailbreak now, it could easily be patched when Apple release 4.3.1. (We all know 4.3.0 has a battery issue that Apple has to fix)
