i hope they can figure out how to activate 1.1.3 aswel for us sim unlocked people coz i use turbosim and i really want 1.1.3 but need the activation & jailbreaking to get going

There is no messing around with hardware required. It has been confirmed.
For my question, so basically if we upgrade now then jailbreak the phone or if we wait and jailbreak it we will lose all our apps and have to reinstall them either way.

Is there a chance that the jailbreak method with be released before the SDK.Cheers mate!

Don't underestimate the amount of foreigners buying an iPhone, and the amount Americans that bought one to use it on their own network. Apple probably makes more money on these extra sales than they do on the (compared) "pocket change" they get from AT&T for an activated iphone.
That's also why Apple has no problem selling iPhones (even more than one) to tourists, while AT&T requires activation at the store, or a $500 deposit if you want to take the phone home without becoming a customer at that moment.
@Macisbetter, if you'd read the thread you'd known that there actually IS a chance that they'll release it before february
The Dev's are cleaning up the code right now and preparing the release.

I am sure they will hold off releasing the jailbreak to the public until after the SDK is released... they dont want to have apple get their hands on this yet

i think its kind of stupid to wait...as every update from Apple will likely break the jailbreak as they have on every other update
and when the SDK is released...there will most likely be another update to coincide

im not impatient at all... im still happily on 1.1.1
i just dont understand the logic behind the wait....
they say they want to wait so that apple doesnt change something in the next update (at time of SDK).... problem is that they WILL change things in the update regardless of if we release the jailbreak or not.
so why wait?

hi could you tell me the name of that file?

They next update may change things, but Apple didn't fix the TIFF exploit until it was publicly being used for jailbreak.
Software is too complicated for there to be much probability they will find the jailbreak if it isn't public.
Even with third-party apps (which won't run as root btw) the ability to run Customize or iSwitcher or SummerBoard to theme the phone will require jailbreak.Starlight Computer Wizardry

I seem to remember that the $280 was for 5 years not for just 1 year - actually $280 for 1 year seems excessive anyway .... as for the $400 for the iPhone, only $80 is profit.
This would indicate that Apple would want every iphone to be locked under contract but there is also room for those phones that are being sold to markets where Apple does not have a deal in place with a particular phone provider.

Stop bickering please
a.) thats not the point of this thread
b.) apple has a reputation to keep. if anyone found out apple was only here to make money, they wouldn't have any business. apple kept a word with att and they have to keep true to it.

Simply because people want to feel "elite". They damn near have the right to be since they came up with it BUT seriously why feed some silly excuse about apple doing something to the sdk if you release this too soon. This holds no water in my mind. Tell it like it is...
They want to have the software on their phones for the next 3 weeks and show off that they are the creme of the crop when it comes to iphone hacking.
I'd love to see what happens when you nerdtards release a jailbreak in Feb that gets screwed when they release the sdk (& possible update) you are so impatiently waiting for. Give the people what they want. Witholding information to the public is exactly what apple does so why be like them? Take strides toward your goal don't stop to take breathers and celebrate before you cross the finish line. Before you know it the race will be over and you will have lost.

to anyone whining about the hacks release... it's not rocket science. Have you notice every update that apple has released killed the jailbreak. If they release the hack right now, apple will change the sdk to block the hack. Then we will have to wait even longer for another hack. so STFU already, do you whiners even understand what the SDK is?
