  1. Just days after the U.S. Copyright Office made cell phone jailbreaking legal, the folks over at iPhone Dev Team have made it easy for the average user to set their Apple smartphones free and install apps that aren't available through the iTunes-based App Store. The hack is accessible to anyone through the website JailbreakMe.com, via the Mobile Safari browser, and can be used with an iPod touch or iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G running iOS 4 and 4.0.1.

    in the amount of time it took me to read this article I jailbroke my phone :D. Bloody insane how quickly Jailbreaking is spreading. If smart Cydia should just join Apple and make a real profit

    lol **** ton? does **** weigh more than other tons?

    but yah... little chance of Apple sharing their game with anyone, much less upstarts who they see as thieving from them. ;)

    Even with a jailbroken iphone 4, doesn't the new type of simcard prevent using the phone with another carrier?

    @recipe7
    this is jailbreaking not unlocking, although supposedly a unlock to all carriers is on its way in a few days

    the cited code is reported to do BOTH jailbreak (allow install of oem software) and unlock (allow access to multiple GSM providers)

    All sounds good, the real question is there a hack out there that can make the iphone 4 work like its supposed to without a case on it?
