    Edit:

    already here. ipt3 has the new bootrom already, and this is why the JB requires a tether.
    I'm afraid this entire post/thread was based on a misunderstanding.
    Please disregard.

    Sorry

    It appears the very latest iPhone 3GS are shipping with new bootrom code-
    and are not vulnerable to the 24kpwn, and (for the moment) not JB'able.

    http://www.ifans.com/2009/10/14/new-iphone-3gs-units-jailbreak-resistant/

    What's new is, Apple has never switched bootroms in midstream before;
    they have waited for a new hardware generation to come around.

    Considering how similar the 3GS and ipt 3G internals are, is it likely
    that Apple is also planning to (or is already) shoveling out a new bootrom,
    that would break the current JB on upcoming units?

    Just wondering, so far. Its idle speculation, but I'm trying to imagine how this would (or would not) complicate the situation with blackra1n/greenpo1son having a successful, working JB. (tethered or untethered)

    From user reports so far, it looks like at least *some* ipt 3G still have the older bootroms, and blackra1n gives a nice tethered JB.

    A bootrom is hardware and has nothing to do with your firmware number.

    different issue.

    The bootrom (not user-modifiable) in your old 1G never changed.
    The bootrom in your new 3G, never changed.

    (hm. I wonder if bootrom has anything to do with the issue
    2/3g 8GB ipod touches are having with blackra1n)

    so that technically means w/e apple to to my 3G its still gonna be vulnerable to the 24Kpwn exploit? or at least some portion of the exploit...just assumed with all the checks apple are doing now with the ECIDs they would update the bootROM during FW update....kinda like sony did with the psp

    if you were around for the 2.0 release, you would understand. It was like Windows Vista. That bad...
