I would load *ANY* other OS on my iphone, just so I could get turn-by-turn navigation!!!

this will mean far more options for the jailbrake community. The devteam has no power over Apple's timelines to do things like copy paste.
What the devteam does is create ways for our hand held personal computer to be far more advanced than apple will allow us to be.

This is great news.... it means that we may (like people have said) have an alternative to iphoneOS.

I can't wait to put Windows Mobile on my iPhone!

Linux on the iPhone
Anyways, as much as I love my iPhone I am super happy to see this development. Android is likely no more than a few months away, and I'm excited to see how this all plays out. Can't wait to play HL1 on my iPhone!

I guess its cool for the nerds but there is no point in replacing the iPhone's already incredibly good OS.

^no point in jailbreaking at all then, eh? And yet we're still all here.

Congrats to the developers! Looking forward to whats to come....

I'm not looking to flame, I'm just wondering want people are actually impressed with.
I for one find it not only lacking but quite mediocre in terms of functionality. Hence why many of us Jailbreak.

Once this is developed a bit more we could start to see custom ROMs for the iPhone, including, but not limited to, Windows Mobile 6, which isn't for everyone but the "Touchflo" software would make it exponentially more practical to use on the iphone. Not to mention Windows Mobile inclusions such as MMS, video, cut, cop, paste, excel, word, phone as modem and a plethora of 3rd party softwares that has been developed for years. This could be incredible with the port of apple's keyboard, because the WiMo touch screen keyboard is 98% unusable, and a browser as good as safari (maybe deepfish). I haven't heard anything on that since I switched to the iPhone, but it was supposed to be pretty good.

Jailbreaking the OS on the iPhone and giving the iPhone a completely new OS are two completely different things. The iPhone's OS is way better than any Windows device i have ever used. It is lacking in some aspects but thats what jailbreaking is for. We jailbreak to enhance the already stellar OS, not to replace it. Even if this becomes so easy to use and so widespread that its as simple as jailbreaking i am still going to stick with Apple's OS, it is way better than any other OS i have ever usediLive an iLife

i just read the instructions on how to do it and it said that it could messup your phone to the point where it will never boot up properly and your computer will never recognize it. Thats way to risky
Jailbreakin since 1.1.1
man i wish we could just download the jailbreak from safari just like back in the day.
update: comex has answered my wish.
