    Negative, it's been said that even though this is a bootrom exploit, there are still things that have to be done with new firmware that apple releases. They won't be wasting it but new releases require work so why do all the work all over again when 4.2 is around the corner?

    How is that negative? There are always things to be done with a jailbreak of this nature to update them to work with each new firmware (see pwnage tool and redsn0w). That doesn't mean they should hold it back if it is ready before 4.2 comes out.

    I wasn't saying that you were being negative, only that the devs will have to work on a JB as soon as 4.2 is out. So by releasing one now and then again soon, it's just a lot more work for them.

    I know you werent saying I was being negative, you were saying I was wrong. I see what you are saying by it giving them more work but 4.1 is what is released now so it gives them something real to work with. They would have to do all the work again anyways if they wait for 4.2 to go final so they may as well do it now.

    If they release it after 4.2, then apple will make 4.2.1 a week after to close it. So no point in waiting, they'll still have to work on the next firmware

    If this is indeed a bootrom exploit apple will not be able to simply patch it with a software update. It will take a new bootrom just like when the 3GS got a new one shortly after being released.

    Ur right but that doesn't mean it'll be jailbreakable as it is, they still need to do some updates to make it compatible. It just means they'll have less work to do. I think that's what mj2508 was referring to

    Ya I know what he was referring to, and agree with every firmware update they will have to update the jailbreak. I just dont think that is a good reason to hold back the jailbreak, and I dont believe they will hold it back.

    Just saying, only my opinion. Everyone expects the devs to work every waking moment on every firmware that's released! Must be exhausting to be a dev!

    Same here that is only my opinion. We are each entitled to our own . I agree though, it must be exhausting to be a dev. I know I couldn't do it, these guys are amazing.

    If you read the thread the only one he really has going is himself. Not many of us believe him.
