Some devs are against making money. See: http://fsf.org
Most devs aren't. The JB Dev Team frown on people charging for: jailbreaking tools, jailbreaking info, jailbreaking as a commercial service. They dont frown on people selling software FOR jailbroken devices.
On the other hand, some devs are crazy, and charge more money than is reasonable. Frequent recurrent charges (like Intelliborn) are a great revenue stream, but make users unhappy. There is little to no recourse-
Your best bet is not buying it again, and warning other users not to make the same mistake. Unfortunately, "voting with your wallet" may not work either! When revenue starts dying off, the developer tends to look for other reasons- piracy, poor marketing, and not the ill will they may have created in the first place.
It's been said that any "price a customer is willing to pay" is the right price,
and good will certainly doesn't pay the bills,
but making a few extra bucks by pinching your customers where it hurts, is a bad business.

As I said, updating from 5.11 to 6.1 is free. jailbreaking is still free but updating an app is not free? Thats wrong and the dev should be kicked off Cydia for forcing people that updated to pay again.
Its looking like if you update and jailbreak and already paid for intelliscreenx then you have to pay again which indirectly is paying to jailbreak.
He's done this for each jailbreak. I think it was the last 3 jailbreaks there has always been a paid for update to intelliscreenX. The paid updates only come with each jailbreak. so which I see is if you use and already paid for IntelliscreenX you have to pay to jailbreak to keep using it.
If the devs of IntelliscreenX want to charge for this update then they cant complain about a pirated version getting released.

So everyone here knows that @planetbeing is one of the main creators of intelliscreenX right? And @planetbeing is also one of the main devs working on this upcoming jailbreak.

Well i dont think @planetbeing is in charge of what they charge, i think @intelliborn controls this. I dont agree with the update charge either. Especially when its half of what i originally paid. But i do agree in supporting the devs although id much rather give the money directly to @planetbeing.

But complaints about pricing are difficult to "hear", because customers always complain.
Once you learn to filter those out, its open sailing (until the cluebat whaps you upside the head).
Maybe they'll listen to data:

I support the devs too as I paid for it already.
And I keep supporting the devs as I just brought an app yesterday so I do pay for apps but I refuse to pay twice for the same app and refuse to pay for an update.

Woah! Need to pay another 4.99 for mywi? Well, your not getting my money...

This is straight BS!!! Having to pay for the ISX6 upgrade!!! Not getting anymore money from me!

I'm shocked at the amount of cheap people on this site! 5 bucks for a capatible update and mass hysteria ensues! Jesus! These are mostly independent developers who have taken their skill and time to create some great mobile applications! For every one person that supports their apps, you have 10 people who use cracked versions of their app. Is it fair that the person who pays get penalized? No. Though, the reality is, I'll support them no matter what because I appreciate their work and product! Plus, it's NOT THAT EXPENSIVE!
Btw, I use to use both(ISX and MYWI)of these products in the past, but i no longer find "jailbreaking" useful or needed anymore. I legitimately pay for my tethering services and frown that y'all are complaining about paying five dollars to circumvent paying your wireless provider.
