This iPhone I have now 3GS is the last one I will be buying, apple will eventually stop the JB and when they do only apple butters will buy the device.
Been playing with my m8s htc desire and am liking it alot super responsive screen and lovely colours they just pop out at you. Only thing is I will miss the games and all the stuff I have purchased on the AppStore (a lot of money) and cydia (about £70+ total)
How much would I get for a mint condition 3GS 16gb White with two cases, telescope (for super close pics) two pairs of apple head phones never used also USB cable never used cleaning cloth never used and original 4.26.0 basband and able to restore to any firmware from 3.0 to 4.0. Also it's unlocked I paid O2 (there terms and conditions were flawed lol so they had no choice but to unlock it)

I know... legalese yada yada, I'm sure there is a paragraph in the iphone saying that you cannot jailbreak it...
I would like to see this contract being forced on a court of law, the bandwidth you use is being used by the iphone, an extra app, in this case mywi, its allowing you to use it with other devices.
If you buy a wifi dongle Im sure they don't limit you what hardware uses it, a PC, a notebook or a 24x7 video streaming device...

Apple enabled tethering. It was a feature in 3.0. But for the rest of the world not ATT.

i think a person should have an option to rent an iPhone or buy it and own it, what apple is doing is not right. i am even thinking of getting rid of my iPhone.

"...Apple argued that because purchasers of an iPhone are licensees, not owners"

Yes we are purchasers but we purchased the phone and everything that comes in it. They would have a right to argue if we were renting these iPhones and modifying and then giving them back but apple will not get these phones back they will simply get thrown away or passed on when the next upgrade comes.

Great job Kyle, I must parrot this idea of yours.

I wonder what this means for syncing your iPhone with iTunes.
I never jailbroken my iPhone 3GS. But after being a long time blackberry user I definitely see the benefits to unrestricted access to your phone. Blackberry allowed users to download any app they pleased.

You can modify the physical phone all you want, and Apple couldn't care less... You mess with their copyrighted material, and they have the right to challenge it. In buying an iPhone, you are simply granted a license, or "permission" to use their copyrighted OS with that specific USER OWNED device.
If somehow you BOUGHT, and had legal ownership of YOUR copy of the OS that is on your phone.... you can bet your arse you'd be PAYING through the nose for every update they ever release!!
The same theory applies in reverse to explain why Apple doesn't issue you a free new iPhone every time they update it!
I'm quite sure that the case presented by the EFF was to prove that jailbreaking doesn't alter or otherwise compromise Apple's copyrighted OS code, it works WITH it. Much like installing any 3rd party software on any PC.
In terms of actual definition... jailbreaking isn't even considered "hacking"... Hence, the ruling was inevitable, because it is APPLE that took measures to prevent the installation of 3rd party apps on the iPhone... not federal or copyright law.
Apple and your boy Steve Jobs aren't losing a second of sleep over this, i'm sure they are well aware that a public jailbreak utility doesn't even exist!!! I for one took my iPhone 4 back to AT&T yesterday because I no longer believe a jailbreak will EVER be released.... Reluctantly for me, it looks like i'm stuck with my 3GS on 3.1.2 for life.

In response to "TheOnlyest"...
Not sure what rock you've been hiding under. But, it must be pretty big if you haven't noticed/heard what Comex, PlanetBeing, and MuscleNerd have been up to.
I can't wait!!! But I will. And I will do it patiently without asking the ETA.
If you were to follow their tweets, and have a clue about the scene... You can see how close they are to a public release!
Thanks Devs for all your hard work & dedication!!!!

good stuff TheOnlyest. people will whine, courts will rule, apple will shrug.
jb will be sweet, but i still like the phone as is, as i paid for.
07-29-2010, 02:08 AM #118
quite the opposite my friend, I follow all of them on Twitter, the sole reason I even have that app. I get the text's when they post too. I check into mmi 8-10 times a day also.
What I AM able to do better than you is read between the lines!! These guys are absolutely brilliant, and they are having fits trying to make this particular JB happen... Its never taken them in excess of 5 weeks to do it before. The tweets that I read scream nothing but one issue after another every time they make any progress. Comex hasn't tweeted much of anything encouraging or promising all week! BTW, thanks for totally missing the entire actual point of my post!

What I posted had NOTHING to do with "the rest of your post". Point being... It will be done! It may not be as fast as previous exploits. So, if you can "read between the lines", and know how long it "should take" to release a jailbreak, then what happened with 3.1.3? And who was it again??? Go figure.
Give the guy some time. They've already proven it can be done. Why wouldn't they release it?
One thing they will not do is release it publicly if it's NOT READY!!
07-29-2010, 11:43 AM #120Well Put
I Agree with you totally, in order to have some functions on my iphone 3G that apple, have deleted from there firmware, i have reverted to jailbreaking. Yet when i tell ppl about the enhancements ive achieved they believe im a pirate.
i dont agree with stealing, to that end i will live with the stigma in the knowledge that im not doing anything wrong..
