  • Jailbreak Meetups Coming to a Town Near You


    The jailbreak community is getting an opportunity to make interactions with fellow modders and hackers considerably more local and personal. MMi is leading the charge behind "Jailbreak Meetups," a new initiative that helps provide unique occasions for members of our increasingly expansive community to connect.

    Are you a jailbreaking aficionado? Do you love showing off your modded phone? Want to chat about tweaks, apps, and more? Now you can use this community to organize a Jailbreaking Meetup in your area!
    From Tampa, Florida and New York City, to Valparaiso, Indiana and Everett, Washington, jailbreak meetups are already taking root ahead of this summer's first ever "Global Jailbreak Meetup Day" - July 10, 2011 - a date set to commemorate the original iPhone jailbreak release.

    If you're unfamiliar with Meetup.com, it's an online destination for people (7.2 million strong) to organize a local group or find one of the many (thousands) that are already meeting face-to-face around the world. Signing up is free and creating an account is easy. Once you're logged in, you can either create your own jailbreak meetup location and time (say, Panera in Anytown, USA on May 5th at 3:00 pm), or you can find a scheduled jailbreak meetup that's already planned somewhere close by and click "count me in" to let the meeting organizer know you're attending.

    To find out more about Jailbreak Meetups, check out the official page and, if you're so inclined, sign up and connect with others in the jailbreak community. If you do, be sure to tag any relevant tweets, photos, and videos with #JailbreakMeetup

      Hope ur unlocked!
      I helped a soldier in Afghanistan JB & unlock his phone w/out any WiFi/cellular access! He had to go to the Base computers and download programs onto a CD then install them on his Mac back at camp. He even had to gain Root access so he could manually install ultrasn0w and Cydia!

      NYC is not that bad. I have spent a lot of time there and on Long Island. There is obviously places you don't want to go wandering into but most of Manhattan is safe.

      Just plan ahead and know the route you want to take and ways to get there. Use things like StopHop to plan your subway routes and be aware of your belongings. If you aren't familar with the area, dont go walking around with giant wallets hanging out of your pockets and too much stuff to carry. As it gets closer, I will decide if I be driving down from Western NY to White Plains and subway into the city or fly into JFK and subway into the city from there if I can get a cheap JetBlue flight. I can meet up with people along the way if people want an "escort".

      Star Trek is fantasy and not real.

      I wouldn't mind going. But I'm not driving 3hrs to Houston in a car that requires premium gas and gets marginally satisfactory gas mileage.

      Unless anyone plans on hosting one in San Antonio or Austin TX....that's do-able.

      Too far. It takes 5 hours. It's basically San Ant. to Dallas except Frisco is 30 min North of Dallas. Houston is closer to you but I just wanted to throw it out there!
      Ah well that is far

      What a small world!!! I used to live right next to where your kidS plays soccer at. Regardless of it being Warren sports complex, or pizza hut park, it's basically the same distance. I live on the border of Frisco/little Elm now, but it still blows my mind that you guys are this close. If only Stealth was closer than he is..... It would be awesome if he could make it this way!!!!!
