You guys need to shut the hell up you guys sound like a bunch of over grown crying babies. who gives a f it that crap is stolen his ass was dumb enough to come out with a 5 second demo instead of coming out with the real thing and someone smarter came out with a longer version and now he's crying someone stole his idea, and u guys talking about not doing things illegal don't you know jailbreaking a phone unauthorized by the company is illegal? So think about the dumb crap say before u put it out there! Sorry people for the incovenient i had to check these dumb kids
Uh, where does it say that it is illegal for me to do whatever the hell I want to do with my iPhone that I purchased with my money? At most my warranty would be void. Who cares. Unless I'm missing something here, if i want to use my iPhone to wipe my ass, that is my god given right. And if I'm ignorant about these laws, then I apologize.
Oh and just to clarify, I'm talking about jailbreaking to add 3rd party apps, not unlocking to use with another carrier. I have ATT.
"the iPhone's firmware is protected by the Copyright Act, and circumventing the access controls in place to get at that code is a voilation of the DMCA. However, the Copyright Office issued six exemptions to the DMCA last year, one of which allows consumers to unlock their cellphones "for the sole purpose of lawfuly connecting to a wireless telephone communication network."
It's not even against the law to unlock the phone. Engadget has some articles related to it and all say that as long as it is for your own personal use, then go right ahead.
If he stole the code from the other guy (highly doubtful) then that would be immoral and probably illegal. If he just copied the guys idea (everyone already thought of it anyways) there shouldn't be a problem. I just don't think he stole the source because you can't get that through installer. And the guy wouldn't have released it if he wanted to make a shareware version. The whole thing just doesn't make any sense.
well we never no what each update will bring or Apple could just b waiting for the sdk to release in feb so they can make a few bucks off everyone downloading somthing that should have been included on day one
