iPhone 4 Already Jailbroken, Tool Being Publicly Released Next Week

Looks like the iPhone 4 has already gotten the jailbreak treatment. There are images floating around showing a proper jailbreak using a new version of the Spirit tool which should be publicly released next week. Updated.

Update: Uh oh. Apparently we might not see this jailbreak tool all that soon after all:

Well there is now little twist to it, another iPhone hacker named p0sixninja has confirmed that [Spirit] can't be released in its current shape because it contains some of Apple's proprietary code.

dcogen002 posted this in tips. It seems like AT&T/Apple will be able to check the phones remotely and require an update (un-jailbreak) to keep the phone working. If this is true, you won't be able to jailbreak for more than a couple of weeks at a time.
