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, all users need to do is head on over to 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.

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.

Jeez - what pompous tosh. Apple is not chasing anyone with any punishments or threats, frankly I can't imagine it cares about this trivial stuff that much. Apple just states the obvious - fucking about with your iPhone might break it and if you do its your problem.
