It was just last week that jailbreaking
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
quote: If, and it now a fact jail breaking is ok--it then follows that Apple does not have a right to punish those who do it--take a minute and Google the fifth amendment--not the part about self incrimination, but the last part which very clearly says that you can not punish without due process of law--Steve would probably rather reject his liver than treat customers with respect--but the ruling is in place, and Apple needs to respect our right to do that which is legal.
