Unlocking aka jailbreaking the iPhone is similar to a war. Now the iPhone Dev Team has made a strategic decision to not release the jailbreak solution for the new iPhone 3G S to not give Apple a chance to fix the security hole too early.
As reported yesterday the first images of a jailbroken iPhone 3GS appeared. The iPhone Dev Team says that jailbreaking the iPhone 3G S is technically no problem, but Apple could spoil the party very easily.
The hacker group argues several reasons to hold off on the release, which will not comfort current iPhone 3G S owners who would like to unlock their new device. The argument that makes the most sense is that pretty soon Apple will update the iPhone firmware 3.0 and the group wants to at least wait for that release to see if something changed.
