    "According to GeoHot, a former member of the Dev Team, has announced that Apple have apparently added a new layer of security to the iPhone 3GS called the ECID field. He recommends us all to ‘dump’ the contents of this so that we all have a copy before the next firmware comes out. Without this, you may not be able to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS in the future."

    Wait wait wait wait wait.
    What does this mean??? Will iPhone 3GS be unjailbreakable in the future??

    1- I have NOT got an iphone 3GS yet, because fido has ran out of stock, etc.
    Will it be too late for me???

    Just follow the tutorials on iClarified.com and you'll be fine, that's if you get your iPhone 3GS before the 3.1 update, then you'll be screwed because the iPhone will most likely come in your hands running 3.1, unjailbreakable. The team may come up with a easier solution, but it may take months. If I were you, if you really want the new iPhone, get it now and dump the iBSS and iBEC file so you can jailbreak! Good luck.

    There's a tutorial on the main page for windows which doesn't require a restore

    No you guys im asking if its still possible to do this in the future.

    I don't have the iPhone yet, and since its out of stock, i have to wait.

    Will i still be able to do this when i get my iPhone 3GS in the future, say 1-2 months?

    As long as you get yours before they start shipping them with 3.1, you will be able to jailbreak forever. Say they release 3.1 on July 6 (Monday). They probably won't start shipping (or you wouldn't get one) with 3.1 until at least 2 weeks later. However, I would get one as soon as possible just so you don't chance it.
