Just seen this on DevTeams site:

Jailbreakme v2.0 was a great success, and it’s provided a nice leveling point for all jailbreakers and unlockers on all devices at firmware versions less than 4.0.2/3.2.2. We hope that everybody ever interested in jailbreaks or unlocks was able to join in on the jailbreakme bonanza. Those of you who had Cydia capture your SHSH blobs, or those of you who captured them locally, will always be able to benefit from the jailbreakme.com v2.0 release. Congratulations!
Now it’s a few weeks later, and Apple has closed the jailbreakme.com hole. They’re shipping devices with FW 4.0.2/3.2.2, impervious to this particular jailbreak. So now, people will begin to ask: will there be a jailbreak for devices that shipped with 4.0.2/3.2.2, out of the box?
No, there won’t be. FW 4.0.2/3.2.2 was *only* released to fix the jailbreakme hole. With FW 4.1 still in its beta stages, it makes no sense to escalate the “cat & mouse” with Apple for FW updates that only fix the jailbreak holes. To quote WOPR, “the only winning move is not to play”.


If the cat & mouse game escalates too quickly, especially during beta FW periods, nobody but Apple benefits. For this reason, there won’t be a 4.0.2/3.2.2 jailbreak specifically during the period where 4.0.2/3.2.2 is the latest public release. At best, some future 4.1x FW jailbreak *may* be compatible with 4.0.2/3.2.2 (but don’t count on that).
If any of this is confusing, please ask below in our comments section!
P.S.: For those of you with iPhone3G or iPod Touch 2G(not MC version), it’s true you can always use redsn0w to jailbreak your 4.x devices. Don’t let that dilute the above message, though :)

Now I have to be honest, I am not suprised by this. I think they are being smart waiting for 4.1

At Least this answers everybodys questions now....
 
"Thankfully"??, My iPhone is not yet sent from apple. This is my first iPhone and therefore I'm gonna play with it a bit before jailbraking it, but rest assure, I'm gonna free it :)
 
This News Sucks!! what about all us iPad owners? Even when FW4.1 comes out were still screwed;[ Come on Man, grow some Grapes!!!

The point is 4.0.2 doesn't offer any fixes besides blocking the jailbreak. So as soon as 4.1 is out there will be a jailbreak for it. So you won't need or care about 4.0.2.....
 
suck....

Nope, there will always be a jailbreak. Just takes time and the DevTeam doesn't want to wast their time on a firmware that doesn't offer anything but jailbreak patches...
 
Does anyone know when the 4.1 will be released? :) "Soon" means different things.
