Oh look, here’s a clever hacker who has managed to create a software-based jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS and iPod touch that doesn’t require tethering.
Hacker Geohot says this jailbreak should work on Apple’s incoming iPad, too. “The jailbreak is all software based, and is as simple to use as blackra1n. It is completely untethered, works on all current tethered models(ipt2, 3gs, ipt3), and will probably work on iPad too” George Hotz
