This morning, we learned that Fortune magazine named Steve Jobs as its CEO of the Decade. It is a tremendous honor and much deserving to such an individual. His innovation and brilliance has brought us the incredible iPod, iTunes music store, and iPhone. So what did the Apple CEO had to say about all of this? Luckily, Steve himself was kind enough to spend some of his precious time to write an email to LonePlacebo. Here now is the full, unaltered copy of the message:
What you need:
- Windows XP or Vista
- iPhone 3GS/3G, iPod Touch 1G/2G/3G
- 3.1.2 Firmware
- iTunes 9.0.1
Warnings and Potential Problems:
- iPod Touch 3G users: this jailbreak is tethered so you will have to re-jailbreak the device every time you turn it off.
- This will update your baseband, so if you need to unlock do not jailbreak if you own a iPhone 3G or 3GS. Source
