Revenge of the iPhone jailbreak thread!

so i was doing a little googling out of curiosity today and saw a couple of interesting things: this and this.

my question to the Penny Arcade iPhone community is, has anyone messed around with these yet? are they legit (as far as jailbreaks go)?

i'm currently on a 3GS with AT&T, running 3.1.3. i'd love to finally be able to use themes and sounds and all the cool apps of which Apple disapproves. considering the news came just under a week ago, i'm still skeptical about this new Sprint thing.

also, what things should i be aware of for jailbreaking generally?

    I haven't used it myself, but my good friend just used it to complete success with his new 3.1.3 upgraded bootrom 3GS. Just make sure you follow instructions to the letter, and you should be fine.

    honestly, i jailbroke with spirit while i was inebriated

    all you have to do is plug in, open spirit, click jailbreak, in 2 seconds tops it is done

    that is it

    i've had 0 problems so far

    alright, i ran Spirit...which was incredibly easy.

    now i'm bewildered a bit by all the stuff out there. i'm on a Windows 7 machine...what do i need to use themes and customize ringtones and all that?

    I think this thread had some previous iPhone jailbreaking information. If that helps.

    I dunno. I think he got confused and equated something that might not square with a EULA to breaking the law - two different things.

    This is a very good article on Jailbreaking for Dummies: http://gizmodo.com/5533921/
