    My own hunch is that this is largely FUD. However, with the wide variety of general hacks and unlock tools out there, Apple is also covering their assets since it would be impossible to say for certain that some methods might not cause problems.

    i did the supersim unlock or i should say it was done for me. is that unlock as easily over-ridden as people seem to feel the software unlock will be?

    i'm very happy with the phone as is. i assume i can just disregard any firmware upgrades that aren't deemed secure and enjoy what i've got

    Almost everything depends on the jailbreak process. If they modify anything related to jailbreaking there will be a lot of trouble.

    Complete and utter proof that Steve Jobs is a total c*ckbag.

    I am feeling ready to go return my iPhone back to these idiots at Apple and tell them if they are this hostile to their own customers they don't deserve my money. I can live with my Treo again if I have to. At least I can have an unlocked Treo if I pay more for it, and Palm may be totally incompetent, but at least they don't threaten their own customers and treat them like criminals.

    This is Steve J.
    I am going to lock the iphone so all who have unlocked phone will loveme due to the increase in value of their iphones due to the imposibility of unlocking future phones.
    PS. Tell Bill to screw himself since I have employed both the DEV Team and the IPSF crew. so there will be no new unlocks.
    PSS. I will update the WIKI page to show that the unlock is marked RED again.

    Well, the part I was mostly referring to was the idea that a firmware update would cause permanent and irreperable damage.

    I don't doubt for a moment that the next firmware will render many of the existing hacks useless, but I doubt it will brick any iPhones permanently.

    I wonder if apple did something to deliberately harm the hacked phone with the firmware update.

    You, sir, are a dumbass.
    o yeah NOW i believe you.
    please , sir , pardon me for being skeptical earlier on. i did not realize i was talking to "THECOMPKID"
    btw, in these personal emails you and steve-o be sending eachother did he also tell you the truth about warranties. about how to the federal courts you "the consumer" are the victim and the maufacturers are the ones that have to prove they didnt do anything. as in: in a warranty claim, apple is the one thta has to prove everything. that you broke it and not them.
    "well your honor. the agreement of exclusivity was between apple and at&t. i had no part in it. i went down and bought me a product at full retail price with absolutely no subsidies whatsoever from any party and excersised me legal right , protected under federal law, to own an unlocked cell phone devise to use with the carrier of my choice. after the unlock my phone was working perfectly without any problems. it wasnt until i upgraded it with software from the manufacturer that my phone went dead"

    Seriously speaking they are correct legally.
    The hardware method makes you scrap the wires so that damage is not repairable unless you repace the bored.
    now the software method modifies the baseband, so even when you restore it is not repairable. (since it is still unlocked).
    now I heard that sometimes when people restore they might get an error that causes their device to freeze and give and error and end up bicked, If Apple tries to intentionally do this then I think they will be legally liable since they will have intensionally damaged a devicethat is by all legal aspects our property not thiers.

    My two cents....From a thread that I posted last week.

    "Don't know if many of you are like me, but since the unlock came out the whole iPhone subject is not as exciting as it used to be.

    I'm sure that many of you will agree that it was quite exciting to wake up in the morning for months and hit the refresh botton on your browser that was already connected to the Hackintosh site in hopes of discovering that a crack was discovered as you slept -- for those of us who did at the time (sleep that is). For nearly a month, I think that I spend every nonworking hour trying to crack this thing, which, upon reflection, is far from the most impressive phone I've ever owned in my life...at least not in it's present state and form. What makes the iPhone so incredible, I think, is the OS that's behind it and the fact that the skies the limit regarding what you add/modify/change/patch/install etc., etc. to it. To be perfectly honest with you all, I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be writing/modifying plists for a phone! And the fact that I can SSH/SCP and minicom to the BB and type "AT" commands that I haven't typed in years makes it all the more impressive. It's kind of like Hayes meets BSD...

    Call me a complete lunatic -- you wouldn't be the first -- but is there anyone out there that, like me, is hoping that 1.1.1 will lock us all completely out of the phone to the point that you can't even activate it anymore?

    Assuming this to be the case, Steve J, if you've got your ears on, give us your very worst! I'm looking forward to you bringing the fun back to the iPhone and the challenge of saying "close, but no cigar"!"

    Ladies and Gentlemen, men and women created the hardware and the software that is the iPhone. I'm not afraid of 1.1.1 and I will install it the moment that it is available -- probably tomorrow. This having been said, I think that in light of what has been reported I'd cancel those eBay sales of your old telephone!!!
