I knew jailbreaking was illegal last year when you read the terms and conditions of the iPhone software, jailbreaking violated the rules.

Ha... well, this still won't keep me from pwning my iPhone.
In that case... I will see you all in jail!

This is because of Yellowsn0w, they went too far and pissed Apple Off. They fingered the wrong hole. ever wondered why Apple made sudden and silent 2.2.1 update? YellowSn0w !

I'll tell you the one thing i don't get about this. People are seeing our jailbroken phones, seeing what cool stuff you can do with them and then buying their own. We're boosting apples sales and then their trying to stop us from jailbreaking even though we're helping them!!!

I notice it doesn't say anything about the iPod Touch. I wonder if Apple thinks jailbreaking that is illegal. I could somehow see what Apple is talking about with the iPhone (I still think it is bs though), but if they say jailbreakkng the iPod Touch is illegal, they are crazy. Your iPod Touch is no longer associated with Apple after you buy it (not like the iPhone with a contract), so there is no way Apple could justify jailbreaking the iPod Touch illegal.

02-13-2009, 01:15 PM #27Apple, are you serious?
If people buy your iPod Touches and/or iPhone or iPhone 3G, they are officially the consumer's property. They can do anything with it. It's not like you can take it back from them. They paid full value for your phone so you have no control over it. Apple, stop make ******** statements just so you can annoy people and get them to but new ones if it breaks. let them do what they want. especially since everyone pays at least 2/3/4/5 hundred dollars for the piece of technology in the first place. it's like hackintoshes. Psystar is finding a way to get back at you for setting such limits on Mac OS X.

maybe i'll care more about DMCA when they stop putting securom on video games when people who buy the games are unable to install them just because they have two cd rom drives, or damon tools installed.

oh my days.... What is it with corporations these days? Probably 95% of iPhone owners have no mobile technology related idea or don't even care about what jailbreaking enables. The 'hacking' community drives technology that much more forward and certainly won't adversly affect their sales, quite the contrary!
If Apple us as creative as we like to think they are, why not keep on seeking to innovate based on hackers successful findings and in turn create better devices and make more money??!! The iPhone is literally made up of hundreds of meta-technologies that Apple did NOT invent, but have copied and enhanced. Hypocrites I say!
I have at least 8 family members who have iPhones and only myself and one other have ours jailbroken. Most people will settle for the basic offerings and a few are willing to sacrifice their time to get more out of their gadgets ...so what?? Intellectual property rights has given way to too much monopolization in this world. I remember Microsoft doing the same thing.
Blow these large corporations. I will do whatever the he'll I want with my own property, as long as I don't hurt anyone in the process. Jailbreaking an iPhone hurts no one and certainly not Apples sales so screw you Apple. Love your products but hate YOU!

and they think this is going to fly? If I modify the engine in my car to make it faster, it will void the warrenty but GM has NO right, legal or otherwise to tell me that I cant (including replacing fuel management software). If I modify my laptop to give it a touch screen, including soldering it into the motherboard PCB, it will void the warrenty, but they cannot tell you no.
Apple was actually starting to turn me around (I'm a PC guy at heart) but if this is how they want to play, they can keep their crappy hardware/software. I'll go get a G1 and mod it to my hearts content

they are trying to put fear in all of us n at the same time they have a **** load of money because of who.....US... i am a Tmo customer and i know damn well i wouldnt have this phone that cost $400 n up if the jailbreak never happen..
apple can really suck it because they are on top of the cell phone game becuase people see what WE have done and can now do with the phones and ipods
02-13-2009, 01:27 PM #32Should agree...
Apple says right when they say that iPhone are the most sold cellphone in the world. What helped them to sell that much iPhones? JAILBREAK!! They should encourage and even make it more simple to jailbreak...

Applications available from Cydia that download and install paid for AppStore apps for free.
We all know what this app is.
Apple don't care if we unlock our iPhones or install Apps like cycorder/swirlymms, all these apps do is boost iPhone sales. That's all jailbreaking was until fairly recently.
The most comforting thing is, the fact that Apple has openly said something means that they can't stop it. If they have been letting it go on all this time and turning a blind eye, they would have said nothing and patched it with 2.2.2.

Apple just said "bug fixes" to hide the fact that it was to take down Yellowsn0w!
It could also be the fact that cracking apps is getting TOTALLY out of hand, I mean everyone I know is using cracked apps. The only way to use cracked apps is by jailbreaking. I read somewhere that more people are using the cracked version of an app than people who actually bought the app, upto 70-30 ratio. That must be a p*ss*ng Apple and the 3rd party devs off.
I would have NEVER bought the original iPhone(still got it ) if it couldn't have been jailbroken. It was too expensive for what it had back when it came out here in UK.

No matter what they say, in Countrys on the european continent Apples user agreement is illegal or better said null and void, because its here against consumers laws.
So it is legal to jailbreak your iphone.
Just to let you know.

the thing is that apple is probobly planning on adding all of the feature that we have eventually but they add them gradually over a bunch of devices so that they can get the money out of it so i can understand why apple is upset but if they still add these new features the truth is i would still buy them even if they are already available just because i love to support apple and they will probably tripple the quality of any of our apps
02-13-2009, 01:44 PM #39
Where in the hell does Apple think the AppStore came from? I've got a few JB apps that Apple will not allow, but are really productive, and Apple won't let them in the store because they violate blah, blah, blah? Apple must retract.
02-13-2009, 01:48 PM #40
oh well, I'd love to see them try to enforce this
