But jailbreak and unlock at your own risk! It is prudent to share that on forums like this. I would agree with you there. I wonder if now that it's illegal if it's going to become off topic for discussion here at the forum… Interesting times ahead…

OK. Thanks. I forgot what key to hit to locate the ispw file I loaded on the desktop using itunes.

I preface this by saying it's a legitimate question and not an attempt to troll.
Why should it be standard protocol to send donations when they have not yet perfected the exploit? I can't think of a single product in the market today where you pay the developers BEFORE they actually make the product. Why should jailbreaking be any different?
In the rest of the market, the only time I can think of where you give the developers money before the product is actually finalized is if you're an invester...and in those cases you usually give them money ahead of time in exchange for a share of the profits if the product does indeed come to fruition.
The way I see it, these guys working on the jailbreak are trying to sell a product. When that product - the jailbreak - is finalized and functional I will be more than happy send a donation to reward them for the hard work. Likewise, if they jailbreak is never released then they wouldn't get the donation. Just like I wouldn't give a business man a donation just for working hard. There are tons of people out there who have great ideas and work really hard to make it happen and build a business, but it sometimes just doesn't happen and the business shuts down.
Why do the guys working on the jailbreak go by a different set of rules than everyone else?
Again, this is a legitimate question and I'm more than willing to change my opinion if you make a good case. I hope this leads to a good discussion and not a pissing match.

Don't worry anyways, pod2g says the team is not accepting donations at this point in time.

"Against THE law". It's not internationally against the law and never will be. The cases will get thrown out easily if ever tested in the courts.
The whole idea of making adjustments to your personal property being against the law is just ludicrous anyway.
Since its now against the law like piracy, the mods here should disallow any threads discussing iPad jailbreaking. Interesting.

I was just responding to you announcing that "jail breaking can never be made illegal".
These are your words my friend not mine haha.
Yes I realize the differences against international and national law. But just like saying national law does not make it international law, something that isn't international law but is national law doesn't make it any less illegal. It's just regional.
Was just busting your balls though.

Will an iPhone 5 jailbreak mean I would be able to unlock a natively Sprint iPhone 5 and use it on Verizons network?

Oh yeah, the courts never make mistakes:
Remember when they cracked down on Napster? How many teenagers got arrested?
There's no way they could take our rights away either (Patriot Act).
They could never violate the 2nd amendment (Assault Weapons Ban of 2013).
Innocent people never get put in jail (list too long).
If you don't think they could nail you on a copyright violation, especially to make a point
Man you are living in a fantasy land
