The illustri-notorious Dev Team has blogged about Jailbreaking iPhone OS 2.2.1, released by Apple earlier this week.

Simple version: You can now Jailbreak, if you haven't already upgraded to 2.2.1 via iTunes, are using a Mac, aren't affected by the OS X 10.6 DFU-mode bug, and -- if you want to keep using yellowSn0w for unlock -- are happy to spin your own custom firmware.

Complex version: involves closing the barn door -- see here.

Hopefully an easier solution will surface when the Dev Team has spent more time hacking away at iPhone OS 2.2.1. Until then, the cat and mouse game continues!
