    Hi all,

    I've seen this statement on another site and wondered if this is the case?

    "As for DEV-Team and UltraSn0w we are not worried because Apple will not let that bug last for few days.. in fact they can kill your ultrasn0w anytime you connect to iTunes through Baseband Check"

    What do you think?

    Cheers

    I believe the only way it can be patched is if you (the user) updates your firmware. Other then that your baseband will stay on the one required for ultrasn0w.

    they might be able to do something with itunes so you cant "use" it anymore, but the only way your phone would "lose" its jailbreak is if you updated your firmware.

    just make sure that you dont let itunes "automatically" update your stuff and you should be ok.

    Cool, I wondered if Apple had a new trick up their sleeve.

    I'm with an alternative supplier so I need the unlock to make it worth while

    The next FW update will have a baseband update to plug the ultrasn0w exploit. Probably within a week or two after ultrasnow is released. Hopefully you will be able to build a custom FW with the BB update disabled.

    It's illegal for Apple, or any other manufactures, to do anything to the firmware of an iPhone, or software of any other devices, without the owners consent!

    thats why YOU, as the user, do not upgrade the firmware. the user must click the button to update. that is the "agreement".

    however, apple can do what ever they want to itunes to keep you from uploading and downloading stuff to and from your iphone. you didnt pay for itunes.

    itunes is a "privelege", not a right.
