    Default Is this illegal?
    I jailbroke my iPod touch and got Installer. Is it illegal if I download apps that you would have to pay for in the App Store? Or will I get in trouble with Apple or anything?

    There are several companies that can block you from using the app if it was pirated. Look at BeeJive, it will block your device and even if you buy the app later on your device is still blocked till you contact them.

    Did you seriously ask if taking something that is supposed to be paid for is illegal? That would be like asking if you walked into Walmart and grabbed a TV and walked out without paying, if it was stealing

    At least it is not like other posts like "******** is not working! HELP ME!"

    Still, everyone needs to read the forum rules.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    Ok let me clear it up for you, developers spend most of their time and skills to make an app for one reason only...so you can steal it :-) that's why I make apps...in hopes that I can make $0.00 dollars because of piracy (sarcasm) lol

    Sorry. I know that was a really stupid question, but I wasn't really sure.

    Your fine Tanner, we also love to have fun and you may have been teased a bit about it.
    The fact that you asked the question is fine, shows that you believed it may be wrong, and yes it is, yes you could get in trouble for doing so. Our forum does not promote the use of them, allow discussion or links to them.
