    Default [APPLE] Jaibreaking Breaks the iPhone, Ends the World


    Apple has ampd up their Jailbreaking attacks once again publishing a list of ways jailbreaking is a "major source of instability, disruption of services, and other issues." This follows just a few short days after Apple's claims that jailbreaking is for drug dealers and continues Apple's anti-jailbreak propaganda in their effort to make jailbreaking illegal.

    Lets examine all of Apple's claims:
    Device and application instability: Frequent and unexpected crashes of the device, crashes and freezes of built-in apps and third-party apps, and loss of data.
    Yes this rarely happens through bad combinations of apps off of Cydia. As the jailbreak community grows older these issues occur less and less and when they are identified they are typically fixed asap by devs. That is a risk you take when installing third party software, albeit a minor one.
    Unreliable voice and data: Dropped calls, slow or unreliable data connections, and delayed or inaccurate location data.
    What does this have to do with jailbreaking exactly? There are plenty of people with non-jailbroken iPhones experiencing these problems. BS.
    Disruption of services: Services such as Visual Voicemail, YouTube, Weather, and Stocks have been disrupted or no longer work on the device. Additionally, third-party apps that use the Apple Push Notification Service have had difficulty receiving notifications or received notifications that were intended for a different hacked device. Other push-based services such as MobileMe and Exchange have experienced problems synchronizing data with their respective servers.
    This concerning hacktivated unlocked iPhones on networks that aren't "approved" by Apple. Jailbroken iPhones that are on "legitimate" carriers and aren't hacktivated don't appear to have this issue at all (mine doesn't). This stems back to the dev team's push fix for the hacktivated iPhones on non-Apple carriers and I'll have to point out that that push fix is still in alpha, and it is likely that some devs are working on addressing the issue.

    The issue has nothing to do with jailbreaking and everything to do with unlocking. Since unlocking is perfectly legal in the US Apple is trying to attack jailbreaking instead. Ya know, cloak and dagger, smoke and mirrors, BS.
    Compromised security: Security compromises have been introduced by these modifications that could allow hackers to steal personal information, damage the device, attack the wireless network, or introduce malware or viruses.
    Using computers or nearly anything electronic increases your odds of allowing hackers to steal personal information. That is like saying using a windows computer to download porn could possible introduce malware and viruses. Solution? Make Windows illegal. Once again ridiculous. Maybe Apple should worry about things like an SMS vulnerability that affects all iPhones instead of just jailbroken ones.
    Shortened battery life: The hacked software has caused an accelerated battery drain that shortens the operation of an iPhone or iPod touch on a single battery charge.
    Running applications shortens battery life. Any application jailbroken or not. On any operating system. Anywhere. That's why Apple battery life specs for all of its devices including computers are higher than real life.

    I for one enjoy being able to do other things on my iPhone while listening to Pandora. The shortened battery life is an trivial consequence that I'm aware of and accept.
    Inability to apply future software updates: Some unauthorized modifications have caused damage to the iPhone OS that is not repairable. This can result in the hacked iPhone or iPod touch becoming permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iPhone OS update is installed.
    Jailbreaking is extremely safe. There are millions of Jailbroken iPhones in the world that are operating just fine with out any permanent damage. I'd argue that 99.9% of the .01% of cases where an iPhone is "permanently damaged" because of Jailbreaking is the result of a user not understanding how to restore properly.

    This looks like more of a warning that Apple intends to purposely create an update designed to break Jailbroken devices than current fact.

    Ahhhh... The 900lb gorilla rears his ugly head again. Jailbreaking will never be illegal, and when pigs do finally fly, I'll do it illegally then. Go ahead, read me my rights...

    I ain't skeered..... Thank you Apple for a wonderful device. I as most of us
    have been on the iPhone band wagon sense the start. Please just concentrate
    on building great things and stop worring about what we do with them.
    You know what's funny, I came from ModMyMoto where I modded the
    crap out of all my Motorola V3's and I don't remember Motorola saying
    one word about it. What's up with that? Are people getting flak for modding
    the GPhone???

    P.S. If you would stop kicking back perfectly good apps and just leave the
    iPhone open there wouldn't be any problems.

    well if apple gave us everything that should be on any phone, especially a phone like the iphone like, mms,ringtone,themes,bluetooth e.c.t and wernt so picky about what goes in the app store then there would be no need for jailbreaking and therefor apple and us would be happy. so the answer is to give us what we want!!!

    I would bet it's pressure from AT&T more so then Apple. Why would Apple care? The sell more due to jailbreaking.
