    Default fishy
    it all sounds a bit fishy to me...

    if this was an 'April Fools' joke it seems like quite an idiotic move on their part. what with iplus and iliberty teaming up to produce an amazing unlock and jailbreak tool. and pesky zibri releasing an updated version of his unlock tool this week as well. it makes no business sense that on the eve of the most talked about DevTeam release, it would be sabotaged by the very people releasing it.

    on the other hand, maybe the 'April Fools' rumors are true to an extent. Maybe the DevTeam did sell out. maybe they sold out to the likes of Apple, or an Apple partner hoping to brick unlocked iphones. maybe pwnage will come out tomorrow with the DevTeam claiming it was all a joke. but maybe its not the DevTeam at all, but the company they sold out too.

    regardless of what happens tomorrow or in the days to come, i will not be pwning my phone for a long time to come, if ever. i am more than happy where i'm at, and because of this latest development i would urge other iphone users to be careful. it seems as though darkness lies ahead. if the iphone can be pwned so easily, who's to say it can't be wormed too or hit with any number of viruses.

    paranoid or cautious, you decide...

    I do really hope it was april's fool. If not, i can only wish teh dev team the best. after all, these groups of dedicated brains allowed us (and that means millions) to enjoy the iphone and ignited a competition that lead to all the other applications jailbreaking and unlocking the iphone. best of luck guys.

    Something sounded strange when they announced a delay in the release of the tool. But we know they've fought internally about selling the product of their efforts before. Some parted ways with the dev team over this kind of stuff. For those that donated, it is a hard pill to swallow. Assuming the tool is real, you would think it should be possible for others to figure it out.

    Engadget and TUAW just broke the story that it is indeed an April Fools Joke....

    Gotta love the Dev-team.

    thank god for capitalism. i hope the dev team can retire. they have done us all a good turn and "when the bough breaks". they need to understand that they will eventually be one upped!
    but on the same token, apple is paying them alot of $$$$$$. thank you for all of your work and good luck!

    we'll be back.............
