    There is no such thing as a completely secure system, so there will always be hacks made if there is a high enough demand for them. If someone wrote a bruteforce program to bruteforce apple's signature on the firmware, it could eventually be cracked. It may take five years with 100,000 people running their gpus at max, but it could be done. I'm sure someone will break apples new updates either way, its just a matter of time.

    I'm glad Apple is so hard at work limiting what you can do with the hardware you bought.

    But then you can't blame them, 30% is a lot of money.
  6. pffftt ....why the heck would anyone buy a phone from their hard earned money and have to go through all this crap to just to get to use it the way they want ?!?!?! beats me...
  7. Pffftt probably the same reason people buy a car then add bigger alloys and a load of speakers, because they want to improve on something they already like ;)
  8. your example is deeply flawed my friend.
  9. yeah but a car at least has the basic features. this is like buying a car and it's locked to run at 25kmh while everything else is at 100kmh
  10. its more like a ferrari, that runs like a ferrari, but without a jailbreak you can't listen to certain radio stations on the radio or change the color of the pain on the exterior, and you have to pay for gas.
  11. don't mention "iPhone 4S" if you can't JB it. Thanks.

    Also your random question is bs.
