    DO you think that this new iOS to be released in march will have an effect on the release of unlocks and jailbreaks that we are waiting for since a lot of time ?

    According to Comex:
    I don't know, I think I'm waiting for the Verizon iPhone.

    So, it's going to be at least another few weeks.

    It's a shame that Geohot is in so much legal trouble, he actually delivers instead of waiting for every insignificant update. go greenpoison!

    Now, it seems my brother iPhone 4 that he got since early Nov. will be a brick for a lot longer.

    If the phone is brick = dead, should return it since it's still under warranty, but I am going to assume you are using the term "Brick" incorrectly and that's not the case.

    Let me guess - he's not on AT&T and needs an unlock to use it on T-Mobile?

    I disagreed, Wasting a exploit with such a imminent release is a bad idea.

    it also make sense to delay the unlock since currently you cannot upgrade without updating the baseband, they need to overcome the baseband check first.

    I'd hardly call it imminent.

    Delaying the unlock is fine since that is much more difficult to create.

    Can't blame him.
    I'd wait for the verizon iPhones and 4.3 also to get on the jb train.

    May as well as wait for IOS5. After all, its just a few months after that. And a much bigger release.

    Or perhaps 5.1 as well, because it's only a few months after that.

    I agree, there isn't one even a useable jailbreak for the current firmware in the pipeline yet. (I'm aware of the tethered jailbreak).
    I think they're having a hard time of it it this time and it's only going to get harder in the future.

    What did Geohot do that got him in legal trouble? because jailbreaking is legal

    Well fair enough, my guess is that the CDMA iphone will ship with 4.3 so I put the release to early Feb, From Jan 12 to early Feb is a short period of time, which in my book is pretty imminent

    Guess what ? after 4.3 there will be iOS 4.4 or iOS 5 !

    We should wait for iOS 19 in my opinion in order to save ALL TEH exploits. Make sens obviously.

    Also, iOS 4.3 is planned for march 2011 according to dif. sources.

    Stolen....... ??!

    Unless you or someone else can code an unlock faster all we have left is wait and be thankful that at least someone is willing to work on it.


    Yes stolen.....

    Yeah i 'll wait :D I was just pointing that this logic doesnt work because there will always be another update.

    Geohot did not steal anything.

    This is besides the point and no related to this thread, but he himself said he "used" Sony's key to sign his code. "Sony's key" AKA Code no belong to him..... AKA he STOLE Sony's code and used it on his own release. That simple.

    He did not break their ToS and he did not steal anything according to the law.

    You'll see you are wrong when Sony will lose the case.

    Yes, that's correct. He got the 4.1 before the release of 4.2. He thought that the new unlock would be released after 4.2.;)

    The point is, is that there will always be a new OS update in the wings, so waiting for the next update to release a jailbreak would mean we'd never see another JB. I'm looking forward to airplay and airprint, and I have no use for tethering, so 4.3 is pretty pointless.
