The iPhone Dev Team releases the first jailbreak for the iPhone 4

It was just last week that jailbreaking was made legal by the Library of Congress. Apple was quick to make it thoughts known on the development. "We know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience," said Apple in a statement. "As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably."

Well, the folks at iPhone Dev Team obviously don't care about Apple's warnings and have delivered the first jailbreak for iPhone 4 smartphones running iOS 4 and iOS 4.01. In addition, the latest jailbreak -- which works via Mobile Safari -- also works on iPads.

According to 9to5mac.com, all users need to do is head on over to jailbreakme.com in order to initiate the jailbreak.

A word of warning to early adopters though -- there are some early reports that the server are currently overloaded (obviously) and some phones are being bricked by the jailbreak.

According to twitter updates by Dev Tem members, a carrier unlock for the iPhone 4 will be released within the next 48 hours

Anything would be an improvement. The threat of losing a worthless warranty is like threatening an 8-year-old with having to eat an ice cream cone on a hot day.

I would agree with you if the phone wasn't fully covered in the front and back with GLASS

Yes, but if you think Apple will cover that GLASS if you drop it, your in for a rude awakening. Accidental damage is usually not covered.

Jailbreak doesn't really change a thing about warranty:

If your phone isn't booting up, they can't tell you jailbroke it, if it boots up, you can easily restore the factory OS.

Didn't I read that Apple was watermarking the new phones somehow to show if they had EVER been jailbroken?

I get that everyone sees this as a non issue right now, but wouldn't it be possible for Apple to build in some type of key that would tell them if you have ever broken your phone....like the sh!tty moisture sensor that goes changes color with humidity?
