    So I see a lot of topics wondering about the dev team's jailbreak of 3.0, and why it's not released for the 2g touch yet. Well here's a few reasons.

    1) The dev team needs the keys and IV's of the 3.0 GM, which they might not have gotten yet. [Unlikely to be the reason that the jailbreak isn't out yet.]
    2) The 3.0 that is available in the dev center is not necessarily the actual file that will be released via iTunes. Apple could update the keys and IV's one more time. Most likely this has already been determined because iTunes must have those keys and IV's on hand.
    3) If the dev team were to create a jailbreak now and release it, it a) promotes the idea of stealing the 3.0 firmware as many people would be anxious to get their hands on it and b) would require access to the 3.0 firmware, which they have no right to redistribute.

    Wait a week for the real 3.0 to come out, and the dev team will most likely have a jailbreak released within a day. Be patient.
