    3.0 Jailbreak
    In the past I've jailbroken my 3g using pwntool. Since the 3.0 upgrade, I am wondering if anyone has been able to jailbreak the 3g and if so, what the experience with the new platform has been.

    Many people have jailbroken their phones for apps like cycorder and mms, cut/paste. Is there still a strong demand for jailbreaking?

    From what I've read, the 3.0 upgrade can be jailbroken on a 3G but not yet on the 3GS. It really doesn't seem necessary now though--Especially since you can tether without jailbraking.

    As a slingbox owner, jailbreaking is a must...

    If your in for customization such as themes and what not then go for it. Other than that I don't see it much necessary as before since we got cut copy and paste and other big features with the 3.0 firmware.

    Apparently George Hotz just released his version of the Jailbreak/unlock software for the iPhone 3GS. Check out his blog On the iPhone

    for those that don't know this is the first guy to unlock the original iPhone.

    Yes, I don't doubt that you can jailbreak 3.0, my question is do you feel compelled to do it with all the added features? I believe that many have even tethered with 3.0...Why are you still Jailbreaking?

    Custom themes, video recording on non 3GS phones, MMS messaging (since it is still not enabled by ATT), custom text notifications, free tethering, unrestricted apps

    More? There's tons of reasons.

    I use it mainly for the theme, the HUD, the notification icon, and there's this one app that lets me back up my SMS messages in a way that lets me view them on my computer. That's worth it alone.

    Jailbreaking is not going anywhere, I mainly use it for winterboard customizing my themes.

    Then there are those of us that refuse to use AT&T and MUST jailbreak in some shape/way/form in order to unlock their phones. My jailbroken 3GS is running on T-Mobile very well, thankyouverymuch. :-D

    Cycorder (on 3G), Srobblr (for back ground last.fm scrobbling), Spot (unofficial spotify client), PPUploader (upload to youtube from cycorder), and not forgetting the numerical battery indicator (via Boss Prefs).

    I haven't seen an advantage to jailbreaking yet. There's nothing I want my phone to do that it doesn't do already.

    Not to mention the security flaw Jailbreaking opens.

    I too have a jailbroken 3G running 3.0, and I must say it's running great.
    I have put this nav program on there called Navigon and it's beautiful, and free.
    Live in a low populated area so I probably won't be bothered by too much hackers.
