    Default Jailbreak Impostors On The Loose: Fake Facebook Fan Pages


    Over the last week I have seen many users and developers warning us of fake Facebook Fan pages. First it was a fake Musclenerd Facebook Page, and later to follow, @saurik warned us of a fake Cydia Facebook page. And the latest to trickle in now, is a fake @geohot Facebook Page.

    This seems to be a trend lately, people imposing to be the hard working developers and trying to cash in on their fame. In light of all of this, the developers have all taken steps to create official pages so that nobody is confused on what is real and fake. @Saurik recently added a link to his official Cydia Facebook Page right inside of Cydia's homepage, so you can't miss it. As for MuscleNerd and Geohot, I have yet to see announcements for an official Facebook Page but I'm sure this thread will grow with more information.

    Other than that, keep a look out for anything suspicious and report it to any respected community user, as the networking will spread the news and correct anything that is misleading.

    In a related note, why not join the ModMyi.com Facebook Page.

    If you play Farmville or any other games on FB, you'll notice there are tons of fake pages that promise hacks and cheats for those games. Of course, none of them works. What FB needs to do is let us block those pages especially the "page suggestion" messages by other people.

    ok, we really dont need a jailbreak for 3.1.3, so why did people go through the trouble of making a fan page saying that it is coming?

    Hey....I for one would not follow any jailbreak that's not posted here, however I AM STILL one that would love to see the jailbreak for 3.1.3. I know it won't happen any time soon, if at all, but I'm still hoping!!

    this isn't aimed at you, as we are all guilty of it.

    but we're not much better for just sitting around rumor sites all day.

    Jailbreakers Newaflash - Apple hates you!!! Why do you pay allegiance to people who think all day about thwarting your efforts to use your phone the way you want to? It just works? What about multitasking? That doesn't work. Theres not an app for that! Compliments of Steve Jobs.
    wow.

    i've never complained, because those of us were smart enough not to go to 3.1.1

    the hardware is only slightly better for the nexus one, and that won't last past the summer update.

    again, recovery mode is only for tethered, and i am not tethered

    i don't use twitter, as it's lame sh!t

    i am not loyal to apple. i use an ipod touch because it is the best portable pocket computer for my 200 dollars. email, internet, no android device can do that without a shity contract.

    there are you answers, now go cry

    I think the Android is just too plastic. The iphone is just soo easy to use and who wants a bunch of complications in Android. I say all 3G and 3GS owners should go back to the original iphone and enjoy the phone cuz it seems the newest iphone has got issues.
