    I think you need to get a life! And how do you even know he has multiple IDs. Plus, one1 is MMi's Chuck Norris so don't even mess with him.

    Back on topic. Why does Apple have to ruin everything? If I get something, I can do anything I want like make a bomb out of an iPhone. The good news is there is a way to jailbreak. I hope it doesn't happen to the older generations as well.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    I am sure they will find a way it is just matter of time even it kinda sucks as we have to wait for a new method to unlock. I am wondering if I am gonna order it online now if they will ship it out with the new iBoot.

    Just be glad Apple isn't getting help from Sony or the iPhone will be unhackable like the PS3!!
    Besides there's GeoHot, so it's going to be hacked!
    Remember no one could hack BL4.6 and people like me were waiting for an unlock and when GeoHot tried, took him less than 24 hours to unlock the iPhone 2G!

    Everyone who needs to exchange their 3GS for whatever reason is taking a big chance now.

    Don't drop it.

    personally if it wasn't for jailbreaking I would not mess with the Iphone nor AT&T, If I can't jailbreak Apple, iphone and myself must part ways.

    Does anyone else think this might actually be a way for Apple to just get all the unsold iPhones sold? Like it was mentioned this is the first time they have ever done this without releasing a whole new version of the iPhone. I honestly think they know the new one will get hacked and figured they would use that to get rid of the current phones already out that can be hacked (everyone will rush to the stores to get one of the only hackable phones left)

    They basically kill 2 birds with one stone make a bunch of money off the phones that still haven't sold and put a limit on the Jailbroken phones for a while (even though they know it will get hacked).

    Default Advice for purchasers of new 3GS?
    So I've read that the refurbished and older phones are obviously more likely to have the older bootrom. But how would one find these phones? I can't find a way to officially buy a refurbished 3GS. I don't want to do ebay because I need the AT&T subsidy. But I don't see how one could know how old the stock is at an AT&T store. They don't have dates on the boxes, do they? And even once the phone is in your hands, you can't tell the bootrom version unless you connect it to a computer in DFU mode, right?

    So far, the only one I've seem saying they personally got burned by this new rom is this guy. And I think he's in Hong Kong. Is this hitting new iPhone users in the US yet? I can't get my iPhone until Monday when my t-mobile contract is up. I'm afraid it will be too late by then.

    Angry I Spy Liquid In My Future...
    If Apple has finally devised a way to beat GeoHot, The DevTeam, and Saurik (which I highly doubt) I think it will be time to part ways when my contract is up on my iPhone next year.

    And if it has to come to that, I am pretty sure that I spy Liquid in my future...

    I understand the reasons for Apple to want to stop people from jailbreaking...but I am struggling to understand why they won't learn from us jailbreakers and allow us the ability to do the things that we know the iPhone can do.

    Why do they want to push a sub-par device on us when we all know that the iPhone is so much more than that???

    If Apple keeps up these shenanigans and refuses to listen to the most educated segment of iPhone owners...I will be taking my business elsewhere.

    Google is the company of the future, and I am afraid Apple will be left in a cloud of dust if they don't make some radical changes to how they do business.

    Android Liquid is sexy though isn't it???

    I understand why Apple wants to prohibit jailbreaking but I don't understand why they refuse to allow factory unlocked iPhones onto the American market. I know ATT has their exclusive contract but I see people all over ebay and craigslist selling iPhones for full retail price OR MORE-- if you pay an unsubsidized price for an iPhone from Apple it should come factory unlocked to be used with any carrier. Maybe some people (like me) just want the iPhone for it's phone/ipod functions and don't even need the internet at all. I'm just saying. If jailbreaking it out, so is unlocking... and it seems like this will just decrease iPhone sales than boost them. (Because the other alternative is what, switch to ATT so I can pay twice as much for cellular service per month on top of paying $300 for a phone with no insurance?.... no thanks...)

    Wasn't there a stat on here a while ago that said almost 25% of iPhone users IN THE US are not on ATT? That's 25% of iPhone users who will soon be locked out... unless they paid crasy ca$h for a factory unlocked....
