    Then we would waste an exploit on a moron-catching firmware.

    Seriously, there's heaps of threads discussing this. Use the other ones...

    Apple would patch up 4.0 and we would be upset with ourselves for causing it. Well that all depends on the new features. I mean, 3.0 was a HUGE step. So we should defenitly hold out otherwise we will be upset... plus they would patch up the iPad 3G and release updates for the original iPad(WiFi Only).

    All In All.

    3.1.3 Jailbreak Before 4.0's release= BAD.

    yeah the exploit would only be for a short time and everyone would somehow be forced/accidently update, so tapple will patch it in the 4.0. Then the 4.0 might be impoossible to crack, as you can see how hard it was for people to crack the 3.1.3

    basically i dont think the Devs will release it until the 4.0 comes, cause there smarter than that. ( unless Apple finds the crash by themselves )

    The trick is to wade it out until apple has no chice but to release their update.

    wasent 1.0 to 2.0 and 3.0 completely re written firmwares? if i remember correctly they had completely different directories and codes etc

    . if this is the case, the exploit we have now will not work for 4.0 if its a all new firmware.

    You're assuming the exploit works at the same level a user program works at, and that the frameworks it depends on will be affected. I feel compelled to point out that the software 'breaking' in the past was not due to the firmware change so much as the fact that Firmware 2.0 introduced new, official frameworks for programmers to use and consolidated some of the old functions into one feature. 3.0 added the cut and paste framework to enable the feature across the board for all programs, whereas previous jailbreak attempts at this would only work with programs that the cut and paste program could interface with.

    The vulnerabilities that have been discussed don't appear to be framework-dependent, which means we're not screwed if Firmware 4.0 has new framework X which allows multitasking, for example; the main concern is whether the firmware itself has been reworked enough to remove the vulnerability which currently exists. The problem is we don't know if it has been - the vulnerability may still be there, but may not be.

    You release the thing now for a sh*tty version-number-change firmware release, and you KNOW it'll be gone for the next one, just as the holes used for 3.1.2 jailbreaks were closed in 3.1.3. As stated when the firmware first released, this was an idiot-trap revision; if you knowingly upgraded to it, you were an idiot. If you accidentally upgraded, then provided you were jailbroken before and had saved your SHSH keys, you weren't stuck on it. If you were one of the poor saps who bought their iPod 3G two months down the road knowing that 3.1.3 had been released 8 weeks before and did so anyways expecting to be able to jailbreak it that very minute, then you have my pity.

    For f***'s sake, show some patience; we don't know if the holes are still there in 4.0 now... but if it's released this very minute, we know they won't be there for sure when we need them with 4.0. Even if they're patched, surely you won't be so stupid as to upgrade immediately to Firmware 4.0.whatever, and they can still release the untethered jailbreak for anyone who was smart enough to stay on 3.1.x.
