    I'm sure lots of us are very happy with the jailbreak, and we have reason to be. People having been asking about the jailbreak since the day that the 2G's came out. Now that the day is finally upon us, we should be ecstatic, right?

    Wrong. For all any of us know, apple is likely reading these threads right now and saying that they are going to have to fix this in the new models. Or maybe they aren't, but who really knows.

    It truly is a shame that the Untethered JB was released under these circumstances. It is very much possible that we will all have to be under the same circumstances as last time, waiting for the next generation of jailbreaking...

    So everyone, enjoy the untethered jailbreak and a short lived victory. But be ready for the consequences. And realize that a certain company's greed and ignorance might have crippled the next generation of jailbreaking.

    Thank you for reading.

    Just because we're happy that Untethered has been released, doesn't mean we don't understand the implications of it on future generations of iPhones/iPod Touches. NitroKey did this, not us. No need to be spoil sport on a very joyous occasion

    True, but look at how long it took to make this jailbreak...

    I would learn a little more before saying that. Sure some things are un-hackable. It's just that the more complicated the device (iPhone/Touch) the more hackable it becomes.

    Like 6 months or so. That's not that bad.

    Maybe you should change it to Nitro Key's greed and ignorance instead of people in general.

    It's all an adventure! Not only for us, users, but for the iPhone Dev-Team/chronic/ and others!

    I kind of agree, but by the same token there will always be exploits to find in later versions... and yes, NitroKey spilled the beans here..
