Well if this is not a bit of foreshadowing I don't know what is. The Dev Team just posted a update on their website with a "warning" to would be unlockers.

<

blockquote>Update warning! Now for something a bit more serious, we’ve explained about the pros and cons of applying Apple’s updates in the past and we’ve warned against the immediate installation of these updates without knowing what they do to your device. This is indeed true of the iPhone 3G’s upcoming 2.2 release. Installing ‘2.2’ straight away on the iPhone 3G using the iTunes auto-updater could affect your chances of any software unlock in the near future (should one be found and released), so when you see an update in iTunes await our instructions first! Please don’t blindly install the update and then complain about it later ;-)

Did any of you happen to notice the "software unlock in the near future" part? Yeah, so did we here at TiPb. Looks like if you have been waiting for a unlock for the iPhone 3G your patience may be paying off.

Stay tuned in the upcoming few weeks... I think Christmas may be earlier for some of you!
