    Any day? Any week? Or are they on AT&T time and not till next year sometime?
    Wasnt JB out for the 3G the day of the release. Or even a day or two before?

    Realistically they will do it if/when they can. They've had the hardware for 2 days. Unfortunately for us, the dev team has lives, I hope. :)

    The jailbreak for 3G came out 5 days after the 3G was released, so I'd say in the next 2-3 days there will be a 3G S jailbreak released.

    Yes, the apps just have to be made compatible with 3.0.

    My guess is they are still working on Ultrasn0w, so the 3GS may have to wait.

    This is a bad assumption. The reason for the quick 3G jailbreak was that the 3G used the same processor as before and therefore had the same security hole. A look at the time to crack the 2G Touch would give a more realistic analogy as to the time for the 3GS.

    The Touch 2G was released in August 2008. It was officially jailbroken in January-Feburary 2009. Expect a similar time frame for the 3GS.

    Yeah, I just realized that the 3G had the same hardware whereas the 3G S does not. However, the 3G and the 3G S do share the same BaseBand, the X Gold 608. The 3G jailbreak can use the same payload and injection vector to jailbreak the 3G S, there just needs to be a suitable exploit found, and that's the hard part. This could take weeks or more likely, months. So, I'm not going to expect it for a while.

    EDIT: By the way, the iPod touch 2G was released in September 2008.

    I would have to say that too. They want to finish up Ultrasn0w and then fix major bugs on it. Then they will hopefully start on 3GS jailbreaking.

    The also stated on there blog that they won't be releasing periodic updates on how they're doing with the 3GS. Which saddens me, but as long as it comes out I'm fine.

    I just hope it doesn't take as long as the iPod Touch 2G jailbreak.

    Ironic that there's FINALLY an iPhone with enough processing power/RAM to jailbreak without massive slowdowns but it can't actually be jailbroken. Too funny.

    I bet a lot of owners with phones on Ebay expecting to unlock it before shipping are getting a wee bit nervous.

    Any month ?
    Any year ?
