    Well there's only a week left in the month so.........let's just wait a little longer because there's nothing anyone can do about it except comex.

    I just going to predict jailbreak will be out when it's done. All this stuff is getting old and annoying.

    Meh, I'll wait to hear from Comex. People have been wrong about info from him before.

    I can't imagine what it must feel like to be comex, musclenerd, or any of those folks with the incessant requests and questions about when it will be ready. If it was me, I be just about ready to tell everyone to f-off.

    Also: Labman - It looks like there's a syntax problem with your signature. The link to the dev-team blog doesn't work.

    Is there a way to block tweets from people you haven't approved? If so, that's what I would do if I were these guys. People need to let them work in peace and learn some damn patience. Your worlds will continue on as normal with or without a jailbreak.

    I'd be happy if people on MR would stop starting threads every time someone supposedly 'in the know' posts on Twitter.

    People who are interested, including the MR mods and admins, are already following the dev-team on Twitter. there's absolutely no need to start threads on MR about it.

    The thing is they are fixing problems. It's no longer just wrapping it up in a nice little package as everyone was thinking before. There is no way they can come up with any type of ETA when they have to find the root cause of the problems and a solution for them as well.

    The same thing has been repeated everyday but I guess nobody is listening/ or they don't care if their iPhone works half ass.

    My sympathy for the devs is dwindling a little. They don't *have* to make appearances on twitter, and at this point acting surprised or aggrieved that it opens them up to a lot of whiny morons is a bit disingenuous.

    By which I mean to say: all our tsk-tsking isn't going to make any of the whiners stop. The only fix is for the devs to withdraw from the twitter scene, since there is no fix for human stupidity.

    I get that they are likely collaborating from different locations, but twitter can hardly be the best or most private way to do that. Twitter is mostly for ego-stroking.

    My prediction was August 15th. That's three more weeks to work out all the kinks.

    And I agree with a few of y'all. The Dev Team is "leading people on" by saying this and that on Twitter. Perhaps if they stop saying, "Oh, we have this done, but the jailbreak isn't finished" then people wouldn't bitch every two seconds. No one is telling them to update their progress on Twitter every time something is completed. And its not like they HAVE to check their @mentions & DM's.

    I agree, kinda. Everyone hates on Geohot for having a come-apart and your starting to see some of the others following the same road of frustration. I'm not saying they will not handle it with more more grace then George did but he was in a lot bigger spotlight then most of the others.

    You know the best solution to this especially for people who couldn't wait any longer is to put a hold on your twitter account and stop following the Dev people. This way it wont drive you insane. Enjoy your life. There's a lot of things we can do to keep us occupied. Get a hobby. A real hobby! Next thing u know the. JB an d unlock is plastered all over the internet.

    Whatever happened to the 'rebels' in the world?

    You know, those folks that actually work at Apple & believe that Steve "ding daing" Jobs had enough money (or enter obscure reason here) & this lowly research rebel type would sneak out the vitals plans for perpetual jailbreaking in his shorts.
    Kinda like Sandy Berger sneaking out documents from the National Archives.

    Ah, the good ol' days... :rolleyes:

    LOL...my sympathy for this crap disappeared two years ago. At this point, considering all the alternatives available at the click of a mouse, they deserve what they get, as does everyone else.

    Not sure why it's so taboo to ask the developers when it's going to be done. I haven't asked, but it'd be nice if they gave people updates as to what they've done and what they had left. No time frames or anything. Shrug. As long as they're in the scene people will always ask. Just how it is.

    i actually think they wont release anything any time soon i don't know why they even bother putting crap on twitter... i say that when and if they finish jailbreak they should post because this gets people more desperate... i really don't wanna know what they have accomplished till now if at the end of their post it says " NO JAILBREAK YET , NO JAILBREAK TODAY " ... i can wait forever but this kind of thing really pisses me off... Just don't say anything about the progress and if your gonna release it do it if your not planning on doing it don't be an ass like GEOHOT , who in my honest opinion was just looking to capture people's attention... ass
