    It looks as though Apple may have finally got around to fixing the bootrom vulnerabililty played on by the 24kPwn exploit.

    Tweets by @Mathieulh and backed up by Dev Team mebers show that 3GS units are now shipping with a new bootrom version iBoot-359.3.2.

    The new bootrom at the very least means that current jailbreak tools don't work and may need to be modified and at worst and most probable is that Apple have patched out the bootrom vulnerabliity that the 24kPwn exploit played on. The latter case would mean that new 3GS units are unjailbreakable until one of the hacking teams finds a new vulnerability and is able to exploit it.

    Well, it was gonna happen anytime now that geohot and devteam won another battle. And this is apple's answer...something like..."Crack this, b*tches". I am 99% sure that devteam and/or geohot will strike back with..."We did!"

    But I think apple doesn't really want to take total control over the iPhones, because they could...very easy with over the air upgrade. Like the G1 had. The phone will not work anymore until it's updated. I am still praying for the devteam and geohot to release an unlock for the new baseband.

    Oh no..... this got to be a lie.... ive going to buy one in about 4 days... lets hope the danish carriers doesn't have the fix'd ones.... damm why does this happend right before the time where ive planned to buy one?

    Lets just hope the 16GB black's ive seen them have on stock for quite a while doesn't contain this new bootrom.

    I may be getting one in jan, I hope they can find a fix.

    Still, Normally I wouldn't expect this until the 4G model came out.

    GeoHot will find a new way to hack in I'm sure. Besides there are tons of 3GS iPhones out there already that can be jailbroken. I'm sure Apple's new iPhone in the summer still won't be as good as a jailbroken 3GS despite the bigger drive and slightly higher megapixel camera.

    Didn't we have a chat recently about this kind of posting? Did you not bother to read all the details?

    No, not really. Those that buys it strictly for the purpose of jailbreaking are not really part of Apple's intended customers anyways.
