Be careful with this one. I've seen peoples phones cease to work and they had to restore (3GS had no mobile service, only wifi).

Also, as a note, this jailbreak is exploiting a security hole in Safari and malformed PDF's. Be careful what sites you visit guys until Apple fixes it (4.0.2 or 4.1 when it's out we can hope).

P.S. If your iPhone is bricked by this... there is NO warranty.

It doesn't brick it. A restore will bring things back. I have seen that if you try and restore a backup once you've re-installed the iOS that things break again, so it's simply a problem on something that is backed up. You'll just need to setup your phone as a new phone (although you'll lose game scores etc).

You cannot brick an iPhone from software. This is why I find Apple not offering warranty for jailbroken phones to make no difference. If you can't boot up just DFU mode restore. It's IMPOSSIBLE to brick your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad by jailbreaking!!!

Well this is a turn for the worse... someone can vandalize an entire Apple store with this exploit.

Yes it doesn't brick the device... but some of the available software that a person installs after jail breaking might...and without the user even knowing!... For example the radio chip controller might malfunction or power management chip set... then try to restore and whalah!

What if the jailbreak fails... which it does.

...Even the dev teams don't know all of the other members for this stuff... so how do they know that another is not writing malicious or back-door code?

I jailbroke mine too and I noticed a small thing...

If I switch the phone on I can see the typical initial black screen with the Apple logo in the middle, after 2 seconds the screen is the same but on the top I can see some small color lines. I feel like the DevTeam (or whoever did this jailbreak) didnīt fix properly the initial picture into the screen.

Then itīs all ok. Specially I like an app made in Australia, BiteSMS.

wrong, my iphone 2G got upgraded accidentally after JB the 2.x software. It is now stuck in some sort of hellish state where you cannot enter DFU mode.

Many have tried to get it up and running again including decryption. No go.

EDIT HELP: Just did the jailbrake and now I have "locked sim" appearing on the phone (4G running 4.01). Any ideas?

SIM PIN lock is not the same as carrier lock
