    Engadget reports that this closes some loopholes that allowed homebrew to be installed.

    Actually you don’t have to be tethered to a computer for most of the jailbreaking. You only need to be tethered for a VERY short period. At this point in time I can SSH into my Pre from anywhere I have access to a telnet client, all I need to know is my Pre’s IP address.

    Of course, this loophole was MUCH easier for those that don’t know what “rooting” is. Hopefully Palm will give us a second option or get the App Catalog out of beta very soon!
