    Remember how, when 2.0 came out, they completely rewrote the framework and 1.1.X jb apps wouldn't work. Well, I was thinking and I don't think this will ever happen again, ecause think, if they did that now none of the 3000+ app store apps would be compatible and they'd have to port all of those.

    Just what I'm thinking anyone else think so?

    umm your wrong they prolly will and apple will supply a new SDK allowing smoother porting of apps, the reason 1.x.x apps aren't ported is that the dev. of the app are lacking a Mac. and the SDK

    Just because they provide a SDK to port them doesn't mean a lot of des aren't going to be pissed, and so many apps will be off for a while. Wont happen.

    If they do, Apple will launch a super-new SDK with like a million more features than the previous (latest version of the) iPhone SDK. But i highly doubt it'll be towards Firmware 3.x.x
