Apple "Over the last half a week, Apple has been hit with the largest mass-hacking incident in its history. And the perpetrators were the company's own users. Nearly seven million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners have cracked Apple's restrictions on their devices using the jailbreaking tool Evasi0n since the tool was released Monday morning, according to the latest count from Jay Freeman, the administrator of the app store for jailbroken devices known as Cydia. That makes the iOS-hacking app the fastest-adopted jailbreak software of all time, Freeman says." Because, of course, only nerds and geeks jailbreak. There's also a technical analysis of the jailbreak.

My experience is about the same.

A lot was not useful, didn't work well, crashed or rebooted the phone.

Lucky I managed to grab the Transmission app before it got ejected from the app store so I can do torrents on a non-jailbreaked iPhone.

Yeah, I wish I'd been in time to do that. Oh well, running a torrent server with an auto-watch folder is a workable solution, though not ideal.

I wonder about one feature - can it add to iPod Touch internet access via Bluetooth? (so that an inexpensive Nokia phone with BT can act as a "modem")

I have no idea. If I'd power up my iPhone 3G and search around in Cydia I might fight an answer.
