They really don't like GeoHot, don't they?
I think the DevTeam should be more respectful to geohot, he made the original iPhone 2G unlock, and he is a 1-man-band.
Whereas, the DevTeam have about 4 members working on the Unlock.
So they should still respect geohot, because he is a very clever person.

There are also some who also think that Geohot should be more respectful to the dev-team... respect works both ways...
Geohot has probably killed the 3.1 unlock as he released purplera1n while the dev-team were holding off, not realising that both of their exploits used the same vulnerability... thus a new hole will probably now need to be found for 3.1.
In fact more than respect, I think communication between them all is key to keep the cat and mouse game running, and that's an issue they seem to be working positively on.
Actually I do not care if they hate each other to the guts. Competition is always good for progress as you can see.
So how does this affect people who have already unlocked? Is it better to run this instead or if everything is working, just leave it?
Just gotta patch out the baseband.
I do admit, that geohot is immature at times, and wants to get things rolling, but iDevices don't work like that, you need to play the game with Apple, instead of completely against them (I can give a rather long anology to represent this)
I know that geohot used to be a member of the DevTeam, so did Zibri.
This is much better for people who want to unlock, less crashes etc etc, you gotta read the full DevTeam post to understand why this is a brilliant update.
But so far I've had no crashes on either Yellowsn0w or Ultrasn0w since they were released.
Competition is only financialy good for the consumer when the competing parties are trying to sell their product for the highest monetary gain, and as a result cut their cost of production\supply.
The only gain here is pride, to be the first, and being the first is not always in the interest of the consumer as it does not give sufficient time to the developers to thoroughly research their product.
In this case it means that a premature release may cause irreparable damage to a small number of devices due the reduced amount of testing that either party can under go.The possibility of this occurring however remote you may feel it is would be greatly reduced if the knowledge and workload was distributed among those under taking the task at hand.
Two heads are better than one.
