Ladies and gentlemen, it's finally happened; the iPhone 3GS has been jailbroken. The first pictures were posted here, and it didn't take long for excitement over the achievement to spread throughout the Internet.


Update:iPhone 3G S Jailbreak delayed by iPhone Dev Team.

Jailbreaking is a term that refers to hacking a phone in order to gain access to its Unix filesystem. When a handset has been jailbroken its owner has access to parts of the phone that are normally unavailable. This allows owners to unlock the handset for use with another mobile carrier, as well as tinker around and make custom programs for their smartphone. Jailbreaking an iPhone voids the warranty, so it's really the sort of thing you should only get up to if you know exactly what you're doing.

George Hotz, aka “geohot”, knew exactly what he was doing when he started trying to jailbreak his iPhone 3GS. That's because, in addition to being the first person to unlock a 3GS, he was also the first person to unlock an original iPhone. He and the other boys at Chronic Dev have been hard at work since the release of the 3GS, and it seems their efforts have finally paid off.

One jailbroken iPhone is just the prelude to many more. Expect to see a complete guide to unlocking the 3GS appear within the next few days, possibly weeks. Congratulations, geohot and friends!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
