Why? It is a stunningly elegant solution that works - if it hasn't for you then please let people know what the problem is rather than just post that.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

It's not a full update. Full updates are basically restores without the settings and media reset. A regular update uses the [huge] ipsw and it replaces all system files and apps. The OTA updates only update files that have been updated. That keeps the update size much smaller than the usual 700+mb. So the hope is that they can bypass any checks and still get the updates. Only problem is that apple will start updating core files to intentionally break the jailbreak. Fingers crossed for something good...
ZiPhones 1-Pass method stuffed everything into the ramdisk, this led to memory corruption, like grayed out Wi-Fi or bluetooth.
ZiPhone automatically downgraded your bootloader to 3.9, which thankfully could be updated again using Bootneuter. The reason this was bad was that if your iPhone was 1.1.2 or higher, you were screwed permanently, thanks to the Dev team though Bootneuter was an amazing (but again, dangerous if not used properly) tool.
That's enough about ziphone. It's the most unstable jailbreak though. Just sayin. Haha.
ANYWAY back on topic here.
Addressing the stability of JBM3.0, let's go to one of our experts, jay freeman aka Saurik.
-Me: Jay, what do you think of JBM3.0's stability?
-Jay: comex is in /such/ a hurry that his new jailbreak will have a poorly tested kernel driver in it. I'd wait [...] to use it.

Well that's what Saurik thinks. If you want to disagree with him then I call 'ignorance'.

OTA updates don't work on any modified device. Its across the board with Android/iOS/BlackBerry. If you mess with your OS, the check fails and Apple won't update it. Simple.

That indeed would be useful to most iDevice users; but no loss at all, it only takes approximately 20 minutes to achieve the same thing over a wire, so long as you have all you jailbroken apps/tweaks backed up with something like PkgBackup

Yep, have to make careful steps to play the game and not get in trouble. Much like large corporations do also.
