    Well... it's a cat & mouse game. There is no winner. Is there a jailbreak for the iPhone4? No! That means that in this specific area Apple it in the lead. Why should they give up? Why don't the hackers give up, if apple closes the holes over and over again?

    Apple has a reputation to protect, and as a pioneer in the mobile app world, they have a newly emerging marketplace that they want to nurture. Jailbreaking the phone releases their control on the apps that are released, allowing for dilution of the worth and value of their brand without the control that Apple's policies and procedures afford.

    From the perspective of the carrier unlock, Apple has contracts with AT&T to uphold and they have a responsibility to the carrier to ensure that their device works in the way that is advertised without the ability for the end-user to cause harm financially to the carrier. As such, Apple will continue to lock the baseband and police that as long as carrier exclusivity exists in the USA (which is pretty much the only place now that still clutches exclusivity like a weapon).

    As such, Apple will continue to do everything in their power to stop people from jailbreaking and unlocking as long as they can. Ultimately, however, some things they can't fix. For example, the iPhone 2G and 3G -- both of those are hardware hacks that cannot be fixed without physical modification to the device -- so Apple has lost the battle on those two fronts. The changes to the 3GS (especially the new bootrom), on the other hand, prove that they do have what it takes to put something out that provides quite a challenge for the people involved.

    So, in summation, they'll never stop trying to stop the hackers -- and the hackers will never stop trying to hack. I don't believe that they can create something that is 'hack proof', but they don't need to. All they need to do is make it so difficult to hack that most users cannot do it without the assistance of someone much more technically inclined -- this would reduce the prevalence of the jailbroken devices.

    A perfect example is jailbreaking your iPhone vs. installing Android on your iphone. Both are somewhat similar in that you're getting your phone to do something it wasn't intended to do, but installing OpeniBoot and Android on the phone is such an in-depth process that requires many more (dangerous) steps -- so you see a lot of people with jailbroken devices, but very few who have installed Android.

    If they make jailbreaking as difficult as installing OpeniBoot and Android, I'd be surprised if the same number of people complete the process.
