Thread: Proud Member of iFaith...

    Talking Proud Member of iFaith...
    It occurred to me recently, while attempting to discern why so many people are currently fighting so zealously over their respective positions regarding the current jailbreak efforts, that in many respects the jailbreak scene is like a religion.

    This is the most accurate analogy I can make concerning what I can only describe as the constant, childish bickering between the, "..these new jailbreaks are fake, even though I have no REAL proof.." crowd, and the, "..these new jailbreaks are real, even though I've no REAL proof.." crowd.

    Think about it for a second. For those who currently have non-jailbroken devices, the new jailbreak is like their coming salvation, and the day of it's release is like the second coming, "judgement day" if you will. The "iFaith" has it's prophets/saints - GeoHot, p0sixninja, MuscleNerd,...and it's false prophets - bluesn0w, SpartanBr3ak, etc. And some who were once jailbroken but mistakenly upgraded are now "lost" and wait eagerly for the new jailbreak to be released so they can be "reborn".

    People clamor after any shred of evidence of the coming day of jailbreak(youtube videos, blog postings, and poor quality jpegs). Some see this evidence and despite the lack of any first hand experience, will swear up and down that they KNOW the new jailbreaks are real and they will be released soon. They are certain that we live in the "end times". They base this on the fact that many people that have come before them believe the jailbreaks to be truthful, and have placed their trust in these well known hackers, these revered "saints". That being said, believing something just because others have believed it for some lengthy period of time prior is not justifiable...just look at christianity

    This is where the "unbelievers" jump in. They contend that just because there have been some youtube videos, and jpegs from "credible" sources, until something's actually released they see these examples as nothing more than a jesus in the grilled cheese kind of "prophecy".

    After all of this I guess you could say there are now three things you should never discuss in civil company...Religion, Politics, and Jailbreak Release Dates So please before anymore arguments get started over the SAME thing for the MILLIONTH time stop and consider how many other threads concerning the same argument there already are, and how pointless another would be.

    Although there are compelling arguments for both sides of the conflict, I guess that as of this moment, being a noob("neophyte") and trapped within a non-jailbroken iPod 3g 3.1.3 all I can do is remain faithful, and longingly gaze upon yonder shore.

    Add-On 1:

    "...Yea, though we walk through the vallley of the shadow of Apple, we shall fear no update, for GeoHot is with us, and in his efforts may we find comfort..."


    Add-On 2:

    Regarding the day of judgement/Jailbreak release date

    "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but the Father only." - Matthew 24:36

    "Don't ask about a release date. You won't make it happen any sooner." - George Hotz


    This was just meant as reductio ad absurdum, I hope this won't stir up any religious animosity, and if it does, I apologize in advance.


    Peace...

    Just seemed to me that maybe taking a satirical look at the situation could help calm the feud that seems to be coming to a slow boil.

    I think GeoHot is holding out for millions from Apple. I "pray" not though.
