As long as apple allows all the apps to run as root we'll have a relatively easy way to gain r/w access and have our phones out of jail. We'll see with the February release I guess...iPhone 3G
Please read again I only give one warning - thanks!

OK think about this: After the SDK comes out and Apple starts selling these apps via iTunes the Dev team will have some new things to work on like digital sig simulation. If we are able to fool iTunes now into letting us change the extension on ringtones so they sync to the phone for free, maybe the Dev team will be able to fake the digital sig on their apps and we import the apps into iTunes and sync to the phone for free, no jailbreaking necessary.

I think that come February, we will see a completely different landscape for third party apps. IMHO, we will be facing two possible scenarios, depending on whether the the SDK will be freely available (incorporated into XCode) or needs to be purchased for a premium.
1. SDK is free: Everybody and their grandma will develop apps for the iPhone. The serious apps will be commercial, the good apps will be shareware, and the crap will be free. There will not be a need for AppTapp, except for maybe pirating the commercial and shareware apps.
2. SDK will cost: Pretty much the same for the serious apps, since they do that for a living. As to shareware, the SDK at cost may kill that (at least severely limit it). Obviously, you need to have a pretty good app that sells to justify investing in the SDK. Sure, you'll be able to torrent the SDK on or the day after its release, but you can't expect Apple to sanction your app if it was developed without a valid SDK. So AppTapp again becomes an accessory to pirated and/or unlawfully acquired apps.
As I see it, it all depends on whether or not the SDK costs you. Even if it doesn't most useful apps will go shareware or commercial. I'm not judging this, I'm just musing what it might look like in two months time.Come visit AlohaSoft

I wonder this though.... Let's assume Apple's sold ?? 5 million phones. How many are like us? I can't imagine it's a massive group and I question to which extent Apple is concerned about us. Just thinking....
Also, would it be safe to imagine that without the Sim unlock issue, the jailbreak would've been set free if it were just for apps/customizing the screen? Maybe (?)

Couldn't once the SDK is out someone make a nice program, a messenger program similar to yahoo messenger or something and on purpose put a very good hidden backdoor for jailbreaking the phone in it? So good hidden that apple wont find it. Then once apple allows it we just buy this application through Itunes and use the hidden backdoor to jailbreak our phones.

Anyway, I think that it having a jailbroken 1.1.3 will be excellent, you can have a combination of apple-apps, and a combination of jailbroken-3rd party apps. We still have all that we have now, but we can add on more of what we want from apple if we decide to. So I personally don't see it as a threat.

Go figure....... I never could understand those working at the apple store. Its like Steve Jobs is at there house every night. I wouldn't buy a phone from them if they wouldn't tell me the firmware. Hats off to the DEV's. I am constantly blown away by there intelligence and devotion. Regular donations come from me . Thx again guy's.........

Cool, I noticed it changes the icon from the web clip to a black icon that says deviant power, just like the google one does, pretty cool, how is that possible? I want to do that with my website, gershoits.com

There are reports that this is a hardware jailbreak (requires you to hack the hardware). Is this true?
