Tethered jailbreak works day after new Apple OS is announced

It's only been a day since Apple announced iOS 5 and the updated OS has already been jailbroken. 

IPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd posted evidential screenshots on his Twitter account depicting SSHing utility app iSSH successfully installed from Cydia on his 4th-generation iPod touch. 

According to Redmond Pie, the jailbreak is currently limited to tethered boot only, meaning the device has to be connected to a computer during every reboot. However, MuscleNerd and his crew are no doubt working on an untethered jailbreak (although it probably won’t be released until iOS 5 goes to Golden Master). 

IOS 5 is currently available to developers only in beta 1 form and is set to launch to the general public later this fall. It includes 1,500 new APIs and 200-some new features, the following 10 of which were highlighted yesterday: a new Notification Center, News Stand, integrated Twitter support, updated Mobile Safari, Reminders, some new functions in the Camera app, greater functionality in Mail, OTA software updates and activation, iMessage, and updates to Game Center.  

One other feature that wasn’t highlighted on stage yesterday was Wi-Fi Sync for iOS devices. Users will now be able to wirelessly sync with their Mac or PC (Hello, Microsoft Zune). Syncing (including apps, music, and backups) will take place when your iOS device is plugged into a wall charger.

Your such a dumbass, I could do that on my Blackberry phone and my Windows Based phones. Thats all depending on the network your in, try doing that on the iPhone on verizon YOU CANT! Its CDMA not GSM. GSM Allows you to check your email while talking on the phone among other things, CDMA does not.

Soooo ANY smartphone that was on TMobile/ATT could do this.

*You're, *you're. You got the 3rd 'your' right, somehow. Amazing.

The only dumbass I see is a kid who should have finished school and focused more on his studies, rather then belittling others.
