iPhone 4.0 jailbroken on the same day it's released
Just hours after it's beta release, iPhone OS 4.0 has been jailbroken and iPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd has the video to prove it. The method of which this was done will remain kept under lock and key until it's release this summer. Something else to keep in mind is that there is no guarantee that Apple won't throw in a monkey wrench to shake things up between now and the final build.
How many of you are already thinking about jailbreaking 4.0 when it goes live?

I just don't understand why they couldn't of waited to show until after the final beta
While I'm not naive enough to think that Apple doesn't know that someone is going to jail break 4.0, let's just keep the "bragging" down and not throw it in their face. The best marketing decision Apple could make would be to jump on the jail break band wagon and just let their customers do what they want with their property. Why such a bunch of paranoid control-freaks? (Unless this is a reflection of mental state of the man "at the top.")
Come on June and version 4.0!!!
As seen before apple fix exploits only after they are revealed by the jailbreak/unlock methods.
I just cross fingera that this infos is not published before this summer, in order for us to be able to havw te jailbreak.
Personnaly i will jailbreak it in the hour the solution is released.
I just didn't find a use for the other stuff.
Jailbreaking for... Status Notifier SBSettings Lockinfo Thats pretty much it, Apple took care of the rest.
I probably won't be jailbreaking 4.0 just for SBSettings (though I'll sure miss it). The whole management part of jailbreak is just getting to be too much trouble. I'll most likely just leave everything running all the time and deal with the battery life so I don't have to access Settings the old way every half hour.
and wow the new os can give you a wallpaper, with bosspaper i have 100 wallpapers randomly changing on my springboard :-)
Personally, 90% of why i jailbreak is taken care of by apple, and in a cleaner way. But i'll still be breaking ;)....MyWi is a beautiful wireless tethering app, and then i have so many little tweaks that i'd go crazy without. Not to mention Cydgets and Lock Info.
Granted, most of the new 4.0 features do look to be nice additions for a non-JB iPhone, but the omission of an SBSettings replacement just might be enough of a show stopper for me.
I have seen several apps pop-up in app store that replace some of the JB-apps I've been relying on for so long now. But to be able to customize ringtones for SMS, Calendar, etc., tweak themes & fonts...these are all things I'm used to. Would hate to lose them also.
This is music to my ears....I love you Musclenerd tear
