Why does 4.0 have so many compatibility problems?

    None of the older versions have had this many problems with jailbreaking than iOS 4.0 has. This time, we actually need a compatibility list! Has Apple actually tightened the firmware's security this time? Or just changed too much of the actual system so the apps in cydia don't work?

    I reckon they have just found a way to stop apps not approved by them working on a 4.0 device...

    3.0 had compatibility issues, I remember all the threads that made a list of which apps do/don't work. Every new firmware means all the apps for iPhone/iPod touch need to be updated, including jailbreak applications.

    Because iOS4 includes new Frameworks and visuals, they changed the actual system files too much so the Cydia tweaks won't work. Wait for updates. Patients is important.

    I think its most likely because developers cant jailbreak yet if they only have the newer idevices thus they can't provide a fix. After spirit jailbreak when devs will have total access the mess will be cleared up
