    Default Update from Chronic concerning 3.1 jailbreak
    Chronic took a moment today to give a little info on where things are with the 3.1 jailbreak:

    <chronic>
    Padraig: we have an exploit, but due to the nature of it, it requires extra work for each device
    <chronic>
    Padraig: dev team probably already has a jb solution using signed files
    <chronic>
    we are working on a different solution that will jb ipt3 and 3G[s], possibly other devices later on, that uses our exploit that works directly in 3.1 recovery mode, no dfu, no button pressing at all
    <chronic>
    just plug device in, in normal mode or recov, the tool will automatically put in recovery mode, an if needed, and then work its magic
    <chronic>
    Confucious: and probably will be ipt3 and 3G[s] at first
    <chronic>
    we are focused on 3.1 direct jb

    Chronic is working on an easy JB for 3.1
    If you only want a JB and not Unlock then I have no reason to doubt this will work - BUT if you want to be able to Unlock do NOT use this as it will involve updating to stock 3. which updates the BB and hence renders UltraSn0w useless.

    When can we expect this update to be released?
    Just upgraded to a 3GS yesterday and was bummed to see that I got it just in time to get the 3.1 already on it and was not able to jailbreak right away.

    patiently waiting....

    People don't half talk rubbish at times, don't they?

    U sure don't like searching nor reading don't you... If ur on 3GS stay where ur at, if ur on 3G, stay where your at...if ur on 2G, go have yourself a party. If ur on verizon, stick with ur wackberry. If on sprint , u know u want to trade ur palm pre, and I ur on metropcs, ur just edged up broke

    And if ur in 3.1 already , wait until u can downgrade but it's useless as when that is released I'm pretty sure there will be a jailbreak for 3.1 anyway so ur gonna have to update again
