When using the serial port - Yes.
Been that way for over a week now.

Gah, and I was hoping to be the second.
Roll on Saturday.
Is anyone who knows the process likely to be around on IRC at around 11am GMT?

Is it always possible to find a jailbreak through the usb port of every device? Or could it be that sometime the only way to jailbreak is through the serial port? Just to know

You may well have a "lock" on #3
(There are other jb kpw2 devices, owned by non-members, which I do not include in the listing. Not a member of our community. == No community bragging rights.)

That would be "day shift" for our members in England, France, Germany, ....

And "evening shift" for our members in the USA.

Seems likely there would be someone available.

The system internals, at a very low level, does provide the access required over the usb port.
So that is another possible vector for 'cracking' the device.

As an example: fastboot works over the USB port on the Kpw2, but currently it requires serial port access to put the device into 'fastboot mode'.

But maybe some day . . . .

Number 3 has arrived today.

With a nice solution to bring the serial port out of the case:
