Thread: "jailbreak" mac
10-20-2010, 07:56 PM #1"jailbreak" mac
i just saw the keynote from apple. they are making an app store for macs: i was thinking saurik should hop on this, along with jailbreak devs and create a cydia for mac. i guarantee the app store on the mac will have strict rules for apps. if they were to make a cydia for mac you could possibly have just as big of a hacking/modding base as the iDevices.
considering the base of jailbreak is obtaining root access, and you obviously have root access on your computer, then you should be able to create a secondary store with the freedom of cydia. also with this development you could have it install the same way (just like the app store), which way more people would like.
please say what you think about this in the comments, I really hope this is possible.
if this happens steve jobs may just break out in butt hurt tears on stage who doesnt want to see that?!

You can still install programs normally and still have regular user priveleges with osx lion. AppStore is a secondary way to install programs.

Yes this would be cool so you don't have to hunt for cool hacking/modding software. And there could be a mac theme section? That would be sweet!

Cydia is coming to mac, including cydia substrate which will allow for a whole new variety of tweaking opportunity on Mac OS X, just as it has for iOS, it's just a matter of time before it's released: Cydia For Mac OS X To Come Out Soon, Will Use CydiaSubstrate

why would there be a cydia for mac when you can instal third party software without it?Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.

Good point seems like that, even if someone did an online webpage of all the mods like a digital hub it would be good?
