Would a pre-2.0 jailbroken iPod ever become Rare?

    Let's imagine its 1 year ahead from july 11th, i imagine alot of you have seen the light and gone with apples official appstore, also a year from now appstore is double the size of installer - although still has no illegal apps i.e. emulators.

    So now , july 11th 2009, would jailbreak programmers have packed in the game? If so this means no support for installer, which in turn means nobody has a jailbroken iPod.

    Now, lets imagine someone stook with the jailbreak regardless of whether new apps came out or not, and had almost every useful application (along with emulators + ROMs). Would the value of this iPod have increased - for the simple reason it would be impossible to get these applications anymore? Or do you think people won't care how rare the applications are.

    Please note: This is obviously all speculation, i doubt that 1 year from now people would have packed in installer alltogether. But perhaps 3 or 4 years down the line. Don't forget it's installer that needs the maintainence and who would pay to maintain installer when only a few people use it?


    p.s - by rare i also mean go up in value (eBay).

    p.p.s - we're also assuming there is no way to break the official 2.0 firmware (let's say wnPWN goes wrong).

    hmm, i really dont know whats going to happen. but we'll have to wait for 2.0 to come out to see if we can actually jailbreak it. but if it cant, i think a lot of people might stay on 1.1.4 for the emulators and themes. im sticking with it on my iPod till i get the iPhone 3G

    Oh, you raised a good point there. I totally forgot to take into consideration most of us will have 2 iPods : our 3G's and our Touches.

    You could simply go into DFU from 2.0, and restore to 1.1.4 and jailbreak again.
