How much would you be willing to pay for an untethered jailbreak?
IF it were to ever be commercialized how much do you be willing to pay?
liked discussed in other threads, i think there are some, if not most, that would be willing to pay to get an untethered jailbreak in a "timely manner"
how deep are your pockets?

I've been JB'd for a couple of months now, and I know that I haven't taken advantage of even 5% of what I can do with a JB iP4, but I'm really not that impressed at this point. Now that 4.2 is out, every time I connect to iTunes it asks me to update, but I haven't yet. Some apps say that I have to update to 4.2 to use them now, but I'm having to wait until 4.2 is jailbroken (don't want to now since it's tethered and I'd just have to do it again). Since it looks like I have to JB every time a new version comes out, it looks to be a bit hassle.
So to answer the question, $5 tops.

There can be so many JBs based on the number of firmware updates so if I paid once and was able to get the new JBs then 50 and above would be fine. I would also be open to an upgrade price like going from 3.x to iOS 4 I'd also be open again to $40 with a $5 upgrade etc. The problem is after being free and with Apple's firmware being free it's going to be hard to justify.

Would i pay for one? Sure. A jailbreak easily worth it.
But I don't see it happening. Doesn't keep with the hacker mentality. Plus, they'd have to organize into a business, pay taxes, set up a target for Apple, deal with customers :P, etc. Good luck with that.
And then someone else will come along (geohot, geekynerdx or whatever) and release a free one. Heck, i expect someone else to release something before the devteam gets its act together.

Although my iP4 is jailbroken, I still thought the iPhone 4 was already a good piece of kit out of the box. The JB just enhances it; with some cool and most importantly some useful tweaks.
But I doubt I would pay upwards of $40. ..$100 is just crazy!
If developers want to go into that territory by charging for the JB, I think they would do better in making it donation based. Therefore those who WANT to pay more they can. Don't forget not everyone JB's for the same reasons.
