    AT&T told me it wasn't illegal so I'm going to believe them.

    Yeah but apple has never yet done in house work on devices with modified firmware.... Just because this might have been the first time apple mentioned anything doesn't mean they never had a problem with it cause it's obviouse they have.

    Oh well I don't mind staying jb'ed, because the standard OS is so bland, so when apple releases the stuff I have now in there 5.1.4 copy and paste update maybe it'll actually be a phone that users can customize to fit there lifestyles and daily routines.

    Does anyone know how to backup cydia apps to your mac's HD
    Trying to find a cydia back up solution thats more concrete then aptbackup

    get the semi-tethered redsn0w. this way; if it restarts instead of having to go to your computer it just boots up but u cant use the jailbrake stuff. u have to go to the computer and boot to use them.

    I will wait for the full. I would rather not get the lite version personally.

    The lite is OK. I might jailbreak with this new release. But I won't use cracked apps

    Apple grasping at straws, just because they say its illegal doesn't mean it is. Voiding the warranty: yes. Illegal: Give me a break.

    I'm not gonna bother reading all 27 pages of the PDF article, but it seems to me, as a completely legal layman, that jailbreaking itself is completely legal and there's nothing Apple can do about it. People bought their product and if they wanna jailbreak it and add custom themes,e tc, then Apple would be total jerks to do anything about it. (Using cracked apps,etc though...Well, yeah that is illegal). If they happen to break it in the process, then that's their problem, not Apple's.

    Now, what the Dev Team does, releasing programs to assist people in jailbreaking their devices, that could fall in a grey area perhaps.

    But like I said, layman. But Apple sure thinks awfully highly of themselves if they can legally force people to use their products exactly as they say they should be used. Welding the hood of your car indeed, it shows very little respect for the consumer.

    Of course, all Apple can really do is update firmware and plug all the holes to prevent jailbreaking, which is entirely within their right. But I can't see them realistic enforcing it, even if they do happen to win here.

    It is your right to modify any product that you paid your money for

    Sure, but it's not your right to expect any service after that. Once you're jailbroken, don't take it for granted that any of the official applications would work correctly, that your account in iTunes would be valid, or that games would run on it without problems (if at all).

    Currently none of that happens, but that may change.
