I downloaded this, as will other jailbreakers because its wrong for them to do this without asking. If a game asked me before starting it, if i wanted to allow them to check my game play times, and what i did etc,and listed EVERYTHING, and said it would be anonymous, well id deff think about it.But its the almost Trickery that Angers me.
IMHO these services have no right to take statistics and useage on 90% of the data. Things like Jailbroken or not are completely pointless and must have some anterior motive.I look at this almost as ads on a website or iphone app. They are distracting and used to make a cheap buck by tricking us into clicking a link by accident. Thats why many people block them. Because they are intrusive and quite frankly pointless, very few people look at a ad and say "Boy howdie, id love to spend my money on that" ( having no prior interest in that item.
Oh and now i know some ******* is gonna mention that games and web browsers currently do this and that we've been pray to this for a long time now,So just deal with it. I feel like this is a great step twords giving us a choice in our privacy.
Oh and to the other user or future poster who said, "that now devs wont have any info." Jailbroken iphones take up less than 20 percent of the iphone market, Im Positive they will have plenty of data. And maybe now developers will start giving us a choice in the matter.

i'm pretty sure that technically we are given the choice to allow spying on us or not... kinda like the outrage when they said security checks at airports in the US can look at your phone and laptop for sensitive info about weapons of mass destruction, the whereabouts of bin laden, like the whereabouts of elvis without our consent
either way, i'm glad they are giving us what we should have, the ability to disable spying if we choose.

I can't get PRIVACY, when I select PrivaCy"Opt-Out" on the home screen, I get this message "The Package com.saurik.privacy cannot be found in your current sources. I might recommend installing more sources."
I also cannot locate PreferenceLoader under Packages.
what should I do? which repo should I install?
from where can I install preferenceloader?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
is there a site where I can download the ipa directly?
