The reason is that there is a limited number of exploits to be found, and apple is working harder and harder with each release to close up bugs and holes. If a jailbreak was wasted(yes I mean wasted) before the iPhone HD(or 4th generation) apple would simply patch the hole and wed be high and dry. It is for this reason that the dev team, geohot, spirit, and chronic dev are waiting, they have worked hard and they do not want to see it be for nothing. So please stop asking.
    I agree with everything you said except with the jailbreaks. On this point, you are wrong. There will be a jailbreak released with the iPad 3G (comex's spirit). Spirit will jailbreak all devices untethered. Then when the new iPhone is released, geohot, dev team, and chronic dev will release their tools.

    Also the 4.0 betas will be jailbroken (not by any of the above teams), but the jailbreaks will only utilize previously released exploits.

    Flash will never come to Apple's touch screen devices. One of the essential elements of Flash is the ability to detect when the mouse pointer is hovering over parts of the animation - how do you hover a touch screen? It would be so hit and miss as to whether it would work or not.

    And besides, the iPhone isn't powerful enough to deal with Flash. If you look at old computers with similar power to the iPhone, you'll see just how shockingly bad it is on slow machines.

    I'm in the same boat as most. I purchased a 3GS with 3.1.3 so I can't jailbreak. I'm went from a HTC with windows mobile that you can customize anything you wanted on it to an Iphone you can barely change ringtones. This is my first idevice. I never even owned an iPod.
    I wish they would release the JB soon BUT I do understand that if it's released too soon Apple can get ahold of it and see what exploit it uses and make sure that all the future firmware and hardware will not have that in it.
    So, I'm patiently waiting . There's no need to get mad or upset at the people that can jailbreak. Make them too mad and they might not release it at all. And I don't blame them.

    It's funny how everyone thinks releasing a jb now would ruin it for 4.0 do you know how long it takes to package these phones lol they are DONE have the OS loaded on them right now and are in the packaging dept and getting ready to ship. Sure it might effect a later gen 4.0 phone with newer bootrom like 3gs but big whoop !! Everyone was saying there will never be a jb for 3.1.3 lol if it's gonna be made someone will "hack" it just my 2€

    i think this is the TRUEST reason why iphone will not have flash, i don't think most people realize this. also people don't realize that flash games will invade on apples terms. they are kinda communists about flash but they have to protect their investment and their customers from problems they don't need.

    who wants Flash anyway?

    ye guys should check about the real stuff.

    Everyday an increasingly growing number of websites are providing open video formats that can be directly viewed through the web browser interpreting the HTML code and not through any specific player that require additional third party software (i.e. Flash).

    As a very good example, the national TV channel in Spain (Radiotelevisión Española or RTVE) has an application which is downloaded through iTunes, streams TV in real time and completely free. Moreover, with this application, the live broadcast of the 24-hours channel can be accessed and also its Radio channel can be listened to while surfing the application for other written news.

    RTVE iPhone application

    BTW this is in Spanish, but they broadcast many sport events like Champions league, tennis matches...etc

    Haven't seen any other stuff like this around. This is really good stuff and super high quality and most important, it is FREE and with zero ads nor propaganda. See if you can find any other TV channels doing that around.

    who wants flash anyway when you can stream video over HTML with high quality...

    For further information I provide below a (crappy) web-translation version on a really interesting article titled "Apple can live without Flash"

    enjoy!

    I believe the early announcement is to hipe sales for a possible new iPhone in June/July as usual. I think they are trying to head off consumers from purchasing Android devices and getting licked into contracts that may have been iPhone contracts if it were available. If there is a new idevice that has some or most of the missing features, i am sure there will likely be consumers that will wait another 60 to 90 days to get the device if it will do what they want, if the announcement doesn't answer some of the " "Rumors of new hardware and features" or flat out says they will NOT be included i see many going to android based devices sooner than waiting

    Just my .02 cents

    Hopefully it will be able to use 1700 mhz and 2100 mhz so it will be compatible with AWS Spectrum

    Probably the same way 3G customers were treated on the upgrade.
