apple is taking over the world

So let's say we have waited for 4.0.1 to be released and soon after the jailbreak is then released. What will stop apple from releasing 4.0.2 just days after that and patching it? The point is, apple will always patch exploits and people will update without thinking. Waiting isn't going to stop ether.

For me if I can't jailbreak it then it's not that compelling of a device and only reason I put up with at&t. I just bought an iPad but only after I was sure there was a jailbreak for it. So if Apple wants to be stupid and shoot themselves in the wallet ( will not be the first time) they are going in the right direction. It's just a matter of time before android phones are just as compelling device.
no more jailbreak = no more buy new apple products.I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

I don't really think ALL the people at Apple can understand this!
Also why does jailbreaking an Iphone bother Apple at all, other than its improving the quality of the Iphone?
Never mind I understand its just like a woman wanting to control a man!

To all the people saying release now cos apple will only release another update anyway. They may well do, but that will most likely be optional, bux fix, battery improvement etc. The release of the antenna fix is not optional really, most people will want it. Add to that the fact that we know it's definitely coming, and apart from those in the "big 4" countries the rest of the world don't even have 4 yet, it's highly selfish to insist on a release now. And you will be the first asking for a new one because you updated to 4.0.1 and lost the precious JB that you'd had for all of 2 weeks. The dev team aren't stupid, they will do what's right, for the majority of people. Just relax

*takes a deep breath*
There are at least three major errors in this idea...
1) Apple will certainly analyze any exploit that is made public and I have a feeling they've got a couple of iPhones in Cupertino that they could always test it on for further examination. They'll be able to spot a dummy jailbreak just as easily as the Devs and Geohot were able to spot 3.1.3 as being JB bait.
2) Why would the dev team search for and find an exploit only to use it as bait? Why wouldn't they save that exploit or the one they already have and thus be able to capitalize on two exploits rather than waisting both of them only to get one jailbreak released.
3) You want the dev team to release incomplete and buggy software to the public? Yeah, you think people complain about needing the Dev's help these days, just wait until the people get ahold of this "bait jailbreak" and it completely screws up their phones.
But I digress, you are absolutely right in one regard. All they've got to do is find another exploit, it's so simple!

Jailbreak devs will always beat Apple at the waiting game for one key reason: no economic pressure. If Apple waits too long to release an update people will get mad and possibly not buy or even return their iPhones. Jailbreaking is free, so geohot and those guys can wait as long as they want.

I've had my iPhone 3GS old bootrom + upgrade-trapped to 4.0 for about a week and a half now, and this suspense is killing me.
I'm getting jealous by how fast and smooth the 3GS is compared to my old iPhone 2G. I'm unable to unlock it let alone jailbreak since I'm on T-Mobile. With no SHSH's or previous jailbreaks, I'm up the creek without a paddle.
I even applied the full body Zagg kit on my iPhone 3GS. Now it just sits there on my desk, being shiny and alluring, mocking me after each passing day.

hey do you think the white iphones coming out will be released with the updatated software? i'm still wondering if there's any benefit to buying the black one now instead of waiting...i'm concerned things might get patched with the later released phones...
