I wish they would prevent Apple from trying to prevent jailbreak. Now that would be a big story!

Apple is not gonna take this slightly. Good news for us.

Are you expanding your hard drive to investigate security flaws? I don't think you'll get that one.

So, does this mean Apple can no longer brick the phones if folks try to update the OS or apps through iTunes with the jailbreak applied? Can Apple be held liable for 'breaking' a phone that is jailbroken? (puns intended) t

I would like to know more about how this applies to the JB iPad. I understand about the iPhone and other cell phones now being legal to BREAK. The iPad is not a cell phone! For that matter neither is the iPod touch. This ruling sounds like iPhones and cell phones are the only LEGAL exemption. iPad and iTouch are still in the gray area. Probably another 3 years of litigation before we find out that ruling. Great news regardless! Thanks Library of Congress for giving Apple the big Fa-Q!

Hmm, Still voids the Warranty. For 3 years now I have been breaking the Law? Damm, this takes all the fun out of it if its legal now
Like it really makes a difference if it was illegal. Don't ever remember hearing anyone getting arrested for jailbreaking a iphone.
Wish I was, it would look great on my resume and background checks
Oh well, still, its a feather in the hat for the Jailbreaking community !!!

Hurray to the JB community!!!
This should serve as a heads-up to Apple that their closed garden approach/ stance fools no one and harms rather than helps their business model...especially as a great number of "approved" apps are totally useless!!
The jailbreak community lives on

All I really hope is that this pushes Google to release their apps for the jailbroken community...
I want Google Latitude and Google Voice!!!! Since they don't have to be Apple approved for legal use anymore, it seems like a fantastically awesome opportunity!!!

So when does this law actually go into effect? I want to call AT&T and let them know that I am unlocking my phone unless they will do it for me. I wonder what they will say? Lol

I suppose this federal law applies to the U.S. only iPhone owners.
