    Jailbreakers think ahead of time

    As for Apple, they can just call up their lawyers and sue us all. Do you know how bad it would make them? Sueing a 13 year old for just wanting to customize his device. Ha. The media would be all over that. Good luck, Apple. You can just get back in the draw in my refrigerator, because your gonna be spoiled soon! (Plays dramatic music)

    As for Apple trying to prevent JBing on their devices its near-imposslbe. Just as the new boot came for the iPhone, sooner or later a new hacking software will come.

    And besides...If Apple wishes to "Protect" their device, how else would they do it if they "don't" have JB'ed devices?

    Cough- http://media.bestofmicro.com/D/C/193...epatentjbc.jpg

    Dun Dun Dun. Shame on you Apple and your hypocrites. You say it's "Illegal", when your own lawyers have been caught using them. Shame on you.

    I call this IRONY
    they are not going to protect in the way of suing everyone... they will protect in a different way such as new signature updates whenever you connect to itunes.. and than phone will be locked again and couldn't be jailbreak..
    i think that's what their meaning of protecting is....

    Well it's about time Apple took a stand! Well done.

    Actually you probably bought a subsidized iPhone. (they don't really cost $199 dollars). If you want to claim "I paid for it I'll do what I want" maybe you should look into buying one imported from Italy that is factory unlocked?

    Lets be real, ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END

    Quite often I think that the iPhone is a great device, and as of right now, there is no option better in terms of a telephone. But who honestly believes that the iPhone will NEVER lose the pedastal as the number one phone? Na, I dont think so...

    I think that this may be the first step in apple losing its grip on the cellular market. not completely letting go, but has anyone notice the large amount of phones carrying the Android OS? Hmmm... Is this possibly the setting of the platform that every phone worth mentioning is either an Android phone or iPhone? And then the phone with the exclusively released AOS version XX is brought out on the scene and dominates the market?

    Google has it right, and has for a long time. Lets be honest, the GUI for iphone and lets say HTC Hero are day and night, mytouch emphasizes customization. Android market has a lot of the same apps that you see on cydia. Yes, an open source OS is the ish.

    I'm telling you, with more phones that actually do more, apple is going to have competition. Apple made a product that was so over the top and before its time that people couldnt help but buy it. Apply that to a good OS and features that iphone can't touch, and the mobile phone market will be light years ahead.

    Think about it like this. Active Jailbreakers dont make up a large percentage of the iphone community. Thats the truth. But Jailbreakers and unlocked people make up a percentage large enough to hurt sales for when a new phone with a good hype aroudn it is released for apple to notice.

    Our outrage on this board equals in a decision to switch phones. I'm with all of you. Imagine that plus all the other message boards.

    apple, you guys are idiots. you're pushing your users to an open source platform. something that has already been proven to be better than the bull$hit you keep dishing out...

    if apple does succeed, it'll be the equivalent of shooting yourself in the foot..

    good thing i didn't renew with att or get the 3gs...

    what exactly do they mean with jailbreaking cops?
    I guess all this will also mean that the future 4g iphones will probably be built from the ground and up to be jailbreak proof.

    God! I SO!!! ******* HATE APPLE, if wasn't for the iphone's usefulness, I would have dropped their azz long time ago.

    if apple will add all the features and functionalities of Jailbroken iDevices to the official OS,then it's ok to stop jailbreaking,but...the hell,many people don't like iPhone as is,everything can be done with Jailbreaking,i reallt don't know about this Apple.
    maybe they should put their concentration on apps piracy not jailbreaking
    Piracy=Jailbreak is always true but
    Jailbreak=Piracy is not always true!

As much as we hate the idea of losing JBing, which I doubt we ever will,I understand why Apple would want to do it. If you had a company and were making insane profits from product sales, and then someone figured out a way to crawl into your store through a tunnel and steal your products, you would close the tunnel and hire security personnel to ensure the tunnel stays closed.....

    Furthermore, the developers of a majority of these apps are also complaining. Yes apple gets 30% of sales, but the other 70% belongs to some guy/girl trying to feed their family. This is why we have a strong stance against illegal/cracked apps here at ModMyi. Hopefully what Apple is working on is a way to close the door on cracked apps by some sort of encryption or signature, similar to the firmware signing and verification.
    There is also a large assumption here that "when people can no longer pirate it, they will buy it" I REALLY doubt this is the case. People will move on to wherever else they can get what they want for "free" if that was their goal to begin with or simply just live without it. Case in point I am REALLY happy I didn't pay for the POS TomTom app. On the other hand there are plenty of apps I DID buy (such as Beejive) because they were THAT good. Will profits increase if piracy is completely eliminated? Probably, but more money will be pumped into fighting it than is made.

    I will also add that many (note I didn't say most or all) of these people who "are trying to feed their family" as you put it are taking this appstore as a get rich quick scheme in that they are shoveling trash into the appstore to hope it sells. Look at the TOP SELLERS. They are not complaining about piracy (or at least I see way more of those who are butthurt that 500 people are using their app and only 200 paid. I think we can all agree that even 500 people using your app does not equal success/good app.). Why do the ones that make goods apps not complain? Simply because they made something that people are willing to pay for. It is just as important to put piracy into your profit margin as it is for any retail store to put shoplifting into theirs. Obviously shoplifting losses vary by area, but I am still astounded at the losses my girlfriend reports at the local Best Buy monthly in a small town in Iowa.

    If Apple were interested in stopping pirating they should just ask. Neither the Dev Team nor Geohot condone pirating apps.
    I am sure Apple have read Oh no! Complicated stuff!
    Apple are, IMHO, concentrating on the wrong things but it's Cat & Mouse....
    Geohot has already said that he has applied and under qualifications he listed BlackSn0w....
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    I doubt they'll stop the train. They especially cannot do it from a "legal" standpoint. Remember when Metallica sued their fans and they lost like half their fanbase? Same rules apply here. IF Apple did succeed in stopping jailbreaking, whatever Apple won't let us do,.......... Droid does.

    maybe if apple made the phone themeable and many other features by default we wouldnt need to jailbrake to make the phone do what it shoudl out of the box.

    The day I can't jailbreak my iphone will be the day I stop using it. I am preemptively looking for alternative phones already just in case that day comes sooner than anticipated.
