    if they release it before the sdk comes out, apple might be able to patch it.

    Because hacking is a freaking hard job, and your only money is donations (at least for jailbreaking I think.) They don't want apple to patch it and them having to jailbreak the SDK, and I guarantee you that apple will make it hard. Also, they are doing extra work for us. They are beginning to write scripts of all of the hard stuff, which will simplify our job.

    Doesn't everyone love all the deceptive titles that are posted around here? This one isn't too bad, but it's always fun.

    It's good to keep jailbreaking as an availible option, as we don't know the limits of the SDK yet.

    Their goal is to keep the iPod/iPhone an open platform as much as possible. If they release the jailbreak now, Apple will just release a patch and they'll have to work even longer. If they wait though, Apple will take longer to patch, leaving people to enjoy the SDK and jailbreaking.

    Terin7, this one's bad enough... I had a feeling it just may have been true that this thread was going to inform me that the jailbreak for 1.1.3 had been released...

    Boy was I wrong.
