    I'm sure glad I JB and unlocked my phones before I saw this news. I would have paniced and hesitated. So far I haven't had any issues myself that my own stupidity couldn't explain.

    I'm glad GeoHot is seeing the funny side of this, I just did some looking and I can see already that all of the 3.1.2 unlock tools are being provided at a cost.

    Jody Sanders web site which does not warrant a mention is selling these products as their own, telling everyone that comes to their web site that they have come to the rescue.

    I'll be Pi$$ed of for you!

    I'm new to the iPhone jailbreak, work in IT and found it extremely easy to jailbreak using these tools. I would not want a iPhone if I could not jailbreak either.

    Just my thoughts.

    ^agreed, My mom has been on 2.2.1fw since it came out early spring and she has not had one problem. My mom has arthritis and said the landscape sms and email would be better, so I updated 3.0 and she has noticed all kinds of things happening on her phone and possible battery difference. I am on 3.1.2 and I noticed this fw is not as stable as 3.0.1.

    Maybe they could remake the Hackers movie and Geohot can be the next Crash Override with Angelina Jolie as Acid Burn.

    I totally agree I think if Geo does make some kind of patch for this wifi issue it should only be available to Jailbroken iphone users lol. You know I really dont understand why every single iphone owner wouldnt want to jailbreak. I mean if you cant figure out how to download a program and click one god dam button that says make it rain you have no business owning an iphone in the first place or your to stupid for that matter. And now this Droid is out which in my opinion is another failed pathetic excuse to copy the iphone but it does have much more features then a non jailbroken iphone. Apple makes no sense there all jokes!

    ^ I don't understand how someone who spells so horribly runs around on the net calling other people stupid. Not everyone knows about jailbreaking. Not everyone is as savvy as yourself.

    Edit: Geohot will never be employed by Apple.

    Wait a minute, why would putting my iPhone in the freezer void the warranty?

    Does Apple not warranty products in places that get colder than 32 degrees Fahrenheit?

    Friend of mine had wifi go out immediately after the 3.1.2 upgrade on a STOCK iphone 3G that was NEVER jailbroken or hacked in any way. Apple replaced it under warranty. SOunds like they are trying to use hacking as an excuse for a problem with the firmware to me.

    Which is why George Hotz will never work for Apple! It's abundantly clear that he wants to keep the jailbreak community alive and for free because it flat out betters our phones. If he joins Apple not only will he not be able to help continue this dream, but given his amazing talents, would make it unbelievably hard for us to get any future jailbreaks unless we can keep out the baseband updates!

    P.S.
    I think he should patent his code or something so he can sue anybody that reaps the belefits from it by charging people...easy income!

    Or they could just as easily put a C&D out for reverse engineering their code.

    Patenting other people's code? Apple would hire the largest phallus in the nation and surgically implant it into his sphincter if he did that.
