Thread: Jailbreaking/Unlocking exempt from DMCA, aka officially legal

  1. #121
    i am sure that there are some developers who work purely within the boundaries that Apple has set.

    With something like this appearing, it would essentially break these boundaries allowing developers to do as they please.

    /I could be wrong, I haven't been wrong this year, this may just be my time

    Great news! I see many porn apps on many iPhones in the near futue! LOL

    Also, it will make the JB scene bigger because now people who were scared of the Apple Squad coming down on them have no fears. It is now "ok" to JB an iPhone with no guilt! The JB scene is going to EXPLODE!

    Hmm, Still voids the Warranty. For 3 years now I have been breaking the Law? Damm, this takes all the fun out of it if its legal now now
    Like it really makes a difference if it was illegal. Don't ever remember hearing anyone getting arrested for jailbreaking a iphone.

    Wish I was, it would look great on my resume and background checks

    Oh well, still, its a feather in the hat for the Jailbreaking community !!!

    That's cool but who is getting arrested for jailbreaking iPhones? I never really worried about it. Lol

    All I really hope is that this pushes Google to release their apps for the jailbroken community...

    I want Google Latitude and Google Voice!!!! Since they don't have to be Apple approved for legal use anymore, it seems like a fantastically awesome opportunity!!!

    The new jailbreaking exemption deserves a celebration. But there are still some blocking bugs... 28 minutes ago via web

    I think it has been said over and over. But here's my two cents. Jailbreaking was never really "illegal" apple/AT&T just really preferred we did not

    Jail Breakers - 1
    AT&T & Apple - 0

    But I wonder if now AT&T or Apple has to provide an official way to unlock your iPhone.

    Well, if it were up to Apple, we'd all be driving Prius-like iCars running store approved driving apps to get home. We'd have to jailbreak our cars to speed...

    It should be interesting to see if this "legal freedom" produces any worthwhile apps or changes for we, the device owners. I for one would like the ability to use my device like a personal PC and not run an Apple OS or iTunes, or at least a highly modified version of one or both. That doesn't seem to crazy an idea, does it? Wish I knew how.

    At least now we can tell people that Jailbreaking is legal, and prove it. I have friends scared to it and tell them it was "Considered Legal" they said no and chickened out. At least they have nothing to be scared of now.

    Also: Since jailbreaking is legal, does Apple have to fix jailbroken iDevices without voiding warranties, or is this solely up to them?

    If you jailbreak your iPhone you automatically void your existing warranty with Apple. When you jailbreak you violate the EULA agreement you made with apple regarding the use of the iPhone. Although it's not illegal to jailbreak, it does void your warranty when you jailbreak. It's very similar to purchasing a new truck from a dealership, which comes with a manufactures warranty, but if you decide you want to raise your suspension or swap the engine, you there by void your warranty because the manufacturer will not honor any problems that my arise due the post purchase alterations to the vehicle and the manufacturers original spec's for the automobile. But unlike a vehicle, when you jailbreak and have issues with your phone you can always restore the phone back to it's original state. Although, from what I understand and have read in various places, Apple has ways to determine whether or not the device has been jailbroken even after it has been restored to it's original state. I could be wrong about the accuracy of the last part of
    My post but I am certain regarding the rest of about the part dealing with the voiding of ones warranty by jailbreaking their device.

    I hope this helps.

    It's just nice to have an official ruling on the matter. There may have been some people or institutions that have avoided engaging in jailbreaking or development because of the ambiguity involved and the possible negative connotations that came with it.

    This ruling certainly cannot hurt, and if it brings even one more person into the scene it's a good thing.
