    • Can anyone tell me or Does anyone know why the iPhone Dev Team caved in and released the tethered jailbreak?

    Maybe they are losing hope in a non-tethered version?

    How does that happen? Now they're going to be stormed with idiots who messed up their devices. Even though they ignored the warning given to them.

    people will make a GUI for the teatherd so all people need to do it press patch.
    should be fine with a GUI IMO.

    The dev team don't choose to make you wait for it. It's just hard to find an exploit to make the jailbreak work.

    Why is it so hard for some people to get that through their thick heads?

    When the redsn0w lite video was posted on the dev team blog people were moaning because it's not released. Now that they've released it to shut people up they still moan because they can't do it right EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE WARNED. There's just no pleasing some people..

    Probably so we could replace the "when will they release" crying threads with the "I can't get it to work" and "I bricked my ipod" crying threads. It was a nice change.

    I was thinking the same thing. Did they just give up hope on an untethered version or did they just want to get people to shut up. (Now some people will mess up thier ipods and complain though.)

    it was most likely an attempt to make people shut the f*** up about tethered, although now those people know why a tethered was not released.
