As the new untethered jailbreaks are currently more important to 3GS owners, I figured this is a good place to post this:
- 1st there is a userland jailbreak "spirit" which was due to be released very soon (according to p0sixninja).
- At the same time there is an iBoot exploit, but everyone wants to keep it hidden until the next major hardware release.
- Then suddenly geohot discovers another exploit and according to p0sixninja, it will delay the release of spirit. (for unknown reasons).
So now we have 3 exploits. 2 of them actually work on the ipad too (as demonstrated by MuscleNerd and later by GeoHot).
And at the end a promise from p0sixninja of a release of the userland jailbreak soon. (in his blog he mentions end of the month) and on twitter he is making several suggestions to hold on to 3.1.3 as the release is coming soon.

The only thing i fail to understand, is why geohot's new explot will delay the release of spirit:
Everything was progressing smoothly until yesterday. The boy-wonder Geohot threw a wrench in our gears once again after discovering a NEW exploit that pretty much blows everything we've got out of the water. So now we're forced to reconsider our release plans once again.
