    i think because largely not many people know how to go about JB their phones especially all the cool tweaks they can get like sbsettings and bitesms(with quickreply from lockscreen), winterboard, etc... I have personally helped like 30 people who never even knew what jb was and now they are diehard apple iphone users for life

    Maybe if the jb hackers would charge for the jb hacks we would see jb sooner. Still waiting for 4.3.1, I hear its out there in beta.

    Without JB the iPhone is a POS. The 3G is completely crippled.

My answer to apple is employ the brains behind the jailbreaks and hacks and manufacture your phones the way we want them. One's we can mod, customize etc.

    I can foresee a day when we will have to pay for our jailbreak. As much of a demand as it is for it, I'm not sure why a dev wouldn't charge people. I would pay for it (although I do like the fact that it's free) I also would like more hackers working towards getting it to us sooner and untethered. If a few guys are currently delivering the jailbreaks a few weeks after an iOS update just picture how fast we would get it if there were 10 times as many people working on it. Who would pay say $20 for their jailbreak within the 1st week of a major update? I would and I also would expect for them to get paid good money for their hard work. There is money to be made in this industry and this is just a scratch on the surface.

    I hope this starts a new trend for other companies. I would love to see Adobe adapt flash player to the iPhone, using Cydia as its main distributor. If Apple wants to have a stick up their *** over what can and cannot go on their precious device (that we own, not them), then I more than encourage major companies to bypass them using this method.

    Surely this will **** Steve Jobs off, and we can expect to see harsher attempts at blocking the JB on future iDevices if this does indeed take off. He's too much of a control freak to let this whole thing go.

    On a related note, if Company X makes an app that relies on JB, they can be held liable for anything that goes wrong in the system and Apple will be held blameless as they can say they had nothing to do with the app, it wasn't review/approved by them, it violates Apple API usage, etc. It will be difficult (read: not worth the investigation) for anyone to prove otherwise.

    A theme here & there, possibly... but what company wants to deal with the PR and legal nightmare of having their cute little app be used as a viral-hijack tool for the iDev community? Smaller companies, those kind which are little more than 3 college-age guys hacking some apps out, will see a better risk-reward ratio. Bigger companies likely won't.

    I made the mistake of getting an iPhone 4 and dumped my 3GS. It was the longest most boring time I had with the iPhone.
    Ip5 can come out but if there isn't a jb I will forego the upgrade until a jail break comes out.
    Having corporate backing in the jailbreak community may help speed up the process, especially if they can make money off the community.

    The percentage may still be small but the overall numbers of people that are jailbreaking is increasing.
    Influence a niche group, usually a more educated/informed group may be seen as a distribution channel.
    Think about modmyi, what's the percentage of jailbreakers that frequent this forum, I am sure its a small%. Yet information published here is disimenated to the rest of the community, rapidly at that.
    Let's not discount the influence the "minority of a community" can have on a product or service.

    What if apple bought Cydia and implemented it into the iOS and ran it like the app store kinda. That'd be sweet!!

    Like someone else said, I just hope this doesn't mean brutal and un-ignorable ad campaigns on Cydia. I do like the idea of wide corporate acceptance, as that can only broaden jailbreaking acceptability worldwide, but I still like it that many people avoid it because they think it's illegal. Kinda like if everyone else didn't like ice cream. More for me, you know?

    Bro I am glad you said that!

    The thing I just don't understand is why a company would spend millions of dollars on a trivial thing as jailbreaking and not spend it on things that would make there business better and their product more productive.

    Only reason I can think of is SJ is jealous of Saurik.

    He must want Saurik's profit from Cydia also.

    How come the lock screens don't look like your example?

    All they did was change the font, and the slide message. Disappointed. No picture of a car, no slider button that looks like a car.

    That would be horrible! Apple would destroy everything the devs have worked for years on. They would remove packages gradually until there was nothing left but the crApp Store.

    I would only support corporations using Cydia if the jailbreaks came out more consistently and a lot faster. Right now the people making them have real lives to tend to and thus leaving us without a jailbreak a lot longer than a team who perhaps if they were funded, would be able to release almost same-day jailbreaks.

    Major companies will be interested but soon realize that you can get everything free on Cydia but it's still exciting

    i think apple has to do something.

    maybe they should think about ther appstore policitys.
    e.g they could add a section to the app store as "non tested apps"
    for this section you have to agree something like apple is not responible for damages or additional coasts.

    and in this section everybody can release things.
