In a move to thwart hackers, Apple is shipping new iPhone 3GS units with a new Boot ROM that prevents the popular 24kpwn exploit from jailbreaking the iPhone. While the attempt to block jailbreaking is not a surprise move on Apple's part, it is amazing that it took this long for something to happen. MuscleNerd from the Dev-Team has confirmed that the current Boot ROM would make it impossible to jailbreak for the time being, and suggest anyone that wants to JB locate an older or refurbished iPhone 3GS.
