    I'm in Japan and the new iPhone 3G is out. I know so far it can't be jailbreaked. So what if anything can be done so far to it? Are you able to change the theme, play any kind of homebrew? Sorry, but I am new to it.:rolleyes:

    Currently the 3G can be jailbroken, but it cannot be "Unlocked". As of right now a lot of the AppStore games have been cracked, but you won't find them here, as well as a few of the old 1.1.x apps are ready to be used with the new 2.0 firmware. You will be able to change the theme once all the bugs have been ironed out of the latest version of Customize.app, but for now it's not really up to par with the previous versions.

    Severed, the 3G cannot be unlocked or the FW? Cuz if the FW is "modifiable" then the hardware wouldnt be a big problem.
    So can you please explain a bit?

    Been out of the scene for a bit now so am not exactly up to date.

    there is a hardware unlock...but the software unlock should be coming soon

    3g cannot be unlocked...unlocked reefers to changing to carriers that usually cant use iphone

    jailbreaking refers to opening it up so yuu can modify the phone in many ways

    So if it has been jailbreaked already, what call can be done to it so far? I'm guessing not a whole lot? How do you go about jailbreaking a 3G model? I have seen alot about 2.0 jailbreaking, doe's that also refer to the 3G? Sorry for all these questions, but I'm new to the iPhones and use to modify the iPod videos like crazy.

    My post was stating that the iPhone 3G CAN be Jailbroken. This is completely different from being Unlocked.

    Oh yea I see. Alright cool cool. But cant one use it by turning off the 3G and using EDGE instead on non-3G carriers?

    And yes, jailbreaking is like half-way to the full unlock and I am quoting somebody on this forum but I dont recall who. Perhaps Severed but am not sure.
    By jailbreaking it you can modify it as you wish software-wise, if you know what am saying.
    Hope that helped.
