    What terrible English "Today, as ModMyi reported earlier today, Apple has released iOS 5 beta 4 for developer use via the iOS Developer Center. "

    Much better statement. "Today, as previously reported, Apple released IOS5........"

    Well if you were jailbroken then you'd have had to get the " beta 4 the old fashioned by using itunes". If you were not jailbroken and updated ota, then you can go ahead and still use this tethered redsn0w

    "In conjunction with iOS5 beta4 being released to iOS developers, redsn0w 0.9.8b4 is now available for jailbreak app developers (point the b4 redsn0w at the b4 IPSW). Remember, itís a tethered jailbreak right now so youíll need to use redsn0w to boot into a jailbroken state at each power cycle."

    But how many people using beta 3 trying to update to beta 4 OTA are non jailbroken?? As I stated before it will not work this way.

    But yes you are correct. Technically the jailbreak will work if you successfully updated OTA and want to jailbreak and weren't jailbroken before. It will work if you manually updated in itunes regardless.

    I think they changed the site to work with IDE ices better since it's an I site.

    LOL!!! ModMyI is usually last with news anyway. It couldn't possibly hurt to add some proofreading.

    Since Jailbreaking has been deemed legal by a branch of the US Government, isn't what Apple doing then illegal, by interfering with a legal process?

    Jailbreaking is deemed legal but the software (firmware) still belongs to Apple and so they are gonna try every effort to block jailbreaking it.

    Its all for personal gain if you ask me.

    Because when you install a custom firmware there are no unusual apps in /Applicatons, until after cydia is installed, by that time it's to late to check & the with OTA updates you already have cydia installed, so they can check.
    Apple are Control freaks we need to stop them before they take over the world!!

    There wasn't ever anything to check. before, all updates required essentially reinstalling the entire OS. None of your settings were saved (that was up to your iTunes account on your computer).

    absolutely not. Jailbreaking is legal, so they can;t sue you for jailbreaking. They can do whatever they want in terms of updates. Your warranty is still (technically) voided when you jailbreak, and no law is going to change that.
