How many more iPhone generations until jailbreaking no longer exists? Personally I want to be able to jailbreak forever... but it is just not realistic over time to think the jailbreak devs, even as great as they are, to keep putting in ungodly hours purely out of good will without getting paid for it as a real job So basically you have the resources of the richest company on earth hiring people at great wages to patch jailbreak exploits in ios, and you have jailbreak devs that aren't taken care of by anyone except themselves. I wonder who wins this long term battle? Eventually Apple's cash flow will continue to hire great software engineers who will continue to make things harder and harder to jailbreak until eventually, one day, the jailbreak devs say "%#$! it!" and move on to more important things in life. The only question is: When?
