I don’t know if Fluther has any psychics or Apple employees (the latter wouldn’t divulge this info IAC), but most speculate that next Monday 6/9 there will be an announcement at the WorldWide Developer’s Conference (WWDC). An example of a noteworthy rumor site to aid you in your research:

It would be best to restore it first. I wouldn’t roll-the-dice with your fancy phone. The 2.0 firmware is a different beast. A lot has changed under the hood. I would revert back Sunday night if I was you. Just to be safe.

I realize now that I wasn’t being specific in my last post…the iPhone OS 2.0 should be announced on Monday, along with a possible announcement of a new 3G iPhone. Again, speculation at best.

It may be worth it to wait a couple of days, as some programmers out there are working on a jailbreak for 2.0.

I will add that the latest rumors indicate that the online app store is supposed to open this Monday as well, which will only be compatible with iPhone OS 2.0. So those who would want to access this new app store would first need to update their OS to 2.0.

I’ve already restored my hacked iPod to for update early just to be safe. App Store will be cooler than Jailbreak because…
1. Major companies working for apple such as Sega and Electronic Arts.
2. The official”Installer
3. Does not void your warranty and can be fixed if anything goes wrong.

Theotherkid nails it. And it would be foolish to think that all the people working on hacked apps haven’t spent the time getting a legit app working with the official SDK. You will see the same stuff and more. But it will be using documented API’s and will probably work better. The Jailbreak scene will probably be dead in a week.
