    most likely there are several dev teams who devote tons of time to insuring that it will be

    are dev teams like software engineers or just regular people? It'd be cool to learn how to do this stuff....

    Hate to rain on your parade, but...

    No, That's not true. If you had correctly quoted:

    (http://blog.iphone-dev.org/page/2)

    They mean that if you can jailbreak a specific iPod Touch/iPhone generation, it will always be Jailbreakable, regardless of Apple software updates. This is because of hardware-level exploits they need to find.
    Apple has no doubt found out 24kpwn etc. and has most probably corrected them. It will most likely take dev teams much longer to Jailbreak the third generation iPhone, >2G iPod Touches than it took the iPT2G to be Jailbroken.

    It most likely will be, but how long it will take will depend on if the Dev teams are able to use their 24kpwn patch or if apple has patched it.

    theres a good chance it will be jailbroken. but as mentioned in previous posts, it will take longer to jailbreak due to Apple's smartnessnessnessness (jeez thats a mouthful).

    No, it will not be able to be jailbroken, if Apple has ANY oversight at all, it will never be able to be jailbroken. One of the advantages of new hardware IMO.

    I would NEVER jailbreak an iPhone. It offers few advantages on that front. It does offer advantages on the iPod.

    But, it is technically possible that we will get some rigged up jailbreak. I do think that they won't be able to do anything but tethered, with some rigged up dongle. Apple is smarter than that. They will have every hole closed, every oversight taken care of. Jailbreak will be impossible in a permanent manner, and it takes nothing at all for Apple to make the last OS version obsolete, so yea. You may get a tethered, firmware specific, but it'll be closed faster than you can think. I don't see any advantage. You have a productivity device in an iPhone, which it kills me that most people take it as otherwise. Gaming is primary on iPhones, when it is made for productivity. My use of an iPhone will be email and calendaring. I don't want to hear that that's boring, it's what it was MADE for. I'd be happy if 3rd party apps couldn't run on an iPhone.

    Dude wtf are you talking about? The new iPhone will be jailbreakable but it may take time. All software and hardware do have holes and expolitable things. As you can see, every single OS has some sort of exploit. There is no way that Apple can make any iPhone unjailbreakable. They cannot close every hole or exploit. And if there is a tethered firmware specific exploit, it will be temporary and Apple cant close it (unless they use their kill switch), use can always keep the same firmware and just use that. If Apple does use their kill switch then I can see a lot of outrage.
