The Dev Team has announced that there will be no jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2 or 3.2.2, which are the latest Apple firmware updates for the iPhone and iPad, respectively. 

Now it’s a few weeks later, and Apple has closed the jailbreakme.com hole.  They’re shipping devices with FW 4.0.2/3.2.2, impervious to this particular jailbreak.  So now, people will begin to ask: will there be a jailbreak for devices that shipped with 4.0.2/3.2.2, out of the box?

No, there won’t be.  FW 4.0.2/3.2.2 was *only* released to fix the jailbreakme hole.  With FW 4.1 still in its beta stages, it makes no sense to escalate the “cat & mouse” with Apple for FW updates that only fix the jailbreak holes. To quote WOPR, “the only winning move is not to play”.

Their full statement on this mentions that at best a future 4.1x jailbreak might be compatible with 4.0.2/3.2.2 (but also says not to count on that).

So if you were holing off on updating to 3.2.2 in hopes there might be a new jailbreak for it soon, you can stop waiting on that possibility.
