A post over on the iPhone Dev blog suggests that they are now *really* close to releasing a working unlock for the 2.0 iPhone software.

This is spectacularly quickly considering public availability of the phone was only on Friday so congrats and I know that I can’t wait to get ahold of the release!

It’ll be interesting once the jailbroken and unlocked software is released to see how many people write apps for the app store and how many continue to write apps for the jailbroken phone. The app store has it’s obvious advantages and I’m sure that people looking to make money will favour the app store, along with the huge audience it affords but with Apple’s strict regulations and the inability to run background services with the SDK jailbroken apps look pretty favourable right about now.

Only time will tell,
