    If the firmware isn't even out... (only the leaked version is out)... how is there already a jailbreak out? And wouldn't that be against the rules here to support a leaked firmware (since this is the only firmware available).

    I'm pretty sure the people that jailbroke the touch 2G were able to get it legally.Even if they did pirate it, they didn't release anything and are trusted members of this site.

    There is nothing wrong with them jailbreaking the Betas.

    The Dev Team has been working on a jailbreak for a while now, while the betas were out. They haven't bothered to release any jailbreak tools yet because new betas were still in the making. They would have to keep making new Quickpwns (or whatever it is they will use for 3.0).

    I can almost guarantee they will release the 3.0 jailbreak in less than a week.

    Hey, first time poster, it's not that hard to think the dev team has been piecing everything together from leaks, beta, and speculation. I have seen a few screenshots of a home page, I would guess that this firmware is out in about a week.

    there are no leaks. they are called BETAS.
    and dev team has not touched them. it has been individual coders and the quickpwn team
    dev team wants nothing to do with 3.0 until its released

    search.

    When you make the Dev agreement then release it on the internet it is called "Leaking" the firmware.

    Dev team jailbroke them and posted pictures showing that they can do it.

    The GM is the final release of the firmware so the Dev team probably already has it jailbroken and are just waiting for Apple to release it to the general public.

    oh, oops to the first point.

    they didnt do that to jailbreak it, they did it to ease people's worries and then stopped to the second point.
