    I'm not sure on the specifics, cuz I'm no hacker, but jailbreak is like changing the phone from read-only so that you can change things. Once you jailbreak your phone, you can Unlock your phone, up/download stuff from there, etc...

    lol

    This jailbreak isn't qhat you need to unlock your iPhone. The iPhone dev team is working on a clean, user-friendly way to run jailbreak, and stated in Erica's blog on the TUAW, there's still a lot of kinks to work out, but it can be possible.

    I can assure though, sooner or later they'll find out how to unlock your iPhone, just gotta wait a little bit longer.


    As for future upgrades, I'm an employee of Apple, and some co-workers and I have been talking about future upgrades, and although our convos have nothing to do with apple, and we are merely speculating and have NO INSIDER INFORMATION (right now at least. . .), we think that future updates won't be as bad as this, as apple will surely get the hint that everyone is going to be wanting third party apps, etc., and with the lawsuits from this update, they certainly wouldn't want more.
    If they really wanted to shut down the iPhone to where you can't do anything with it, I'm sure everyone's iPhone would be bricked, which Apple doesn't want, I assure you

    Just remember to give give give to the dev team, they most definitely deserve it
