    So a while ago when i first got my unibody macbook and had an iphone 3g i had read that there was a problem and something to do with the USB left you unable to use DEV team unlocks on them, has this changed. I ask because i have just gotten a 3GS and was deciding to jailbreak or not. Is jailbreaking worth it to you guys? What are some of the cool things you can do is there still Installer? Let me know please thanks!!

    You should be fine I believe. I think the problem was the 10.5.6 issue with the USB kext's. This was fixed in 10.5.7. I have a 13" MBP I bought in June and I am able to jailbreak my 3GS just fine. :)

    It totally is! Search the forums a bit as there are tons of threads on this topic. :)

    Using the Dev team method should be fine. I used it on my MacBook Pro and I jailbroke my phone in less than 10 minutes or so. It was pretty simple.

    Find a good instruction or better yet, find a good YouTube video which guides you through the process.
    Firmware 3.0.1 works fine, just make sure you download all the necessary files.

    My sole reason on jailbreak was for SBSettings. I think it's probably the most useful app. I don't bother with the theme changes or navigation tools. Just SBSettings was worth the jailbreak.
    I turn on and off 3G often and use WiFi whenever I'm at home or office. Same with Bluetooth and Location Services, I constantly go back and forth between switching on and off to have my battery last a little bit longer.

    But, my girlfriend who also owns an iPhone, doesn't bother with it. She just keeps whatever setting I put for her and doesn't switch around. For her, jailbreak was unnecessary.
    Jailbreak is for someone who requires or wants "special" things outside of what an iPhone offers as is. If you've just gotten it, try using it for awhile without jailbreaking it and see if you really need it.
    Besides, (I don't know when, but) iPhone OS 3.1 should be coming out soon. At least wait for that.
