  • 8.6% of iPhones Jailbroken and Rising

    In their most recent newsletter Pinch Media (aficionados of iPhone app analytics) published statistics regrading jailbroken iPhones.

    Out of all the millions upon millions of iPhones out there 8.6% of them are jailbroken. That's up from the previous report of 8.43%. Jailbreaking is becoming more and more popular while Apple continues to release anti-jailbreaking propaganda. Pinch Media recorded that out of the nearly 1 million new devices they saw last week 17.1% were jailbroken.

      I was expecting more, I thought it was about 20% but if is increasing I think we're going to get there before apple realize its useless "jailbreak has to be ilegal" project. it's just that; useless

      YAY for Jailbreak. If apple gives us more options (carriers), we dont have to go this way. I hope they realized that why we jailbreak our iphones because is cheaper for the same kind of service and i didnt mean the 3G service.

      I expected it to be more. Apple's Anti-Jailbreaking propaganda only advertises Jailbreaking to more and more people.

      Serioulsy, thats a small percentage at the present time. If it were 40-55% then I would say wow. The iphone has only existed for almost 2 full years??

      True how do they count. Maybe after you have jailbroken your phone and sync it, iTunes sends some information from your iPhone to Apple without us knowing...
