    This was awesome.

    A factory unlock means the phone comes unlocked. This is only available for iPhones from certain countries, such as Hong Kong. This is an officially supported unlock.

    A jailbroken unlock is a hacked unlock. You need to 'jailbreak' the phone in order to install various software to unlock the phone.

    jailbroke unlock = manufacturer unlock
    manufacturer unlock = jailbroke unlock

    The only difference being manufacturer version is done by the manufacturer and jailbroke version is done by the owner.

    The Pineapple boot logo is installed when you jailbreak with quickpwn I believe. I know I had it in the past, but it doesn't show up in the 3.0 jailbreak.

    There is a difference, thought, right? Because with new software updates, there's the potential for it to relock it when it was a jailbroken lock, thus requiring a rejailbreak (which may or may not be available). Basically, you have to be careful with firmware updates, modem updates etc.

    With a manufacturer's unlock, it is supported by the manufacturer, so updating is pretty much an all clear zone.
