Does anyone else find it kinda odd that so many people willingly buy an iPhone and then have to fight the OS to make it do what they want?

If Apple would get their heads out of their asses, and decide that seeing a db reading on available wifi networks was not a "hacking tool" I wouldn't have to jailbreak.

Valarius: I've never really understood this whole smart phone culture craze. Not just the Apple fandom, but I mean ALL of it. I look at it as a phone where you can connect to the internet and download pictures and stuff. Great. But it doesn't do internet or pictures or games or anything as fast and well as a laptop computer. And apparently you have to hit a button to reach the number pad in order to make an actual call, as opposed to the four year old flip phone I'm using for that purpose.

Can someone explain this to me, please?


Sure. You're old.

I swear by the beard of Gates and Torvald's muscular buttocks I'm not an Apple fanboi*. But at this point, it's not like Apple is seriously trying to prevent jailbreaking, is it? (Not that they'd be likely to have much luck in any event.) I mean yeah, sure, you void your warranty and such, but that's basically the industry standard. This seems more like MEH on Apple's part than FAIL.

All the "eight hours" figure tells me is that no sufficiently wizard-like person got their hands on an iPhone 5 before they were generally released.

* posted from my orgasmically awesome new iPhone 5 SQUEEEEEE!

nanim: Can you 'jailbreak' an iPad, and use those apps on it?

/just curious - has no iWare


Yes. It varies on the iOS version and the hardware under the hood. The iOS 6 jailbreak is in its infancy and not released for the masses yet, though.

Moopy Mac: Latinwolf: Yea, another iThread where the iFans start whining about people picking on their favorite product.

75% of posters in all of these threads are so emotionally invested in Android (or at least anti-Apple), that your comment doesn't seem very grounded in reality.


Where? I'm looking at all the posts previous to yours, and I'm seeing jailbreak discussion, talk of Optimus Prime, and one vaguely kinda anti-Apple statement if you're easily offended... I think you're manufacturing your own persecution. Like some kind of cultist.

Mercutio74: Tax Boy: I *had* to root and install a third-party firmware in order to make my old Optimus V actually usable.

But does it still transform into an 18 wheeler?

/And where the fark does the trailer go when it's in robot form?!?!?!?


I spent my childhood watching them ever Saturday morning and never once wondered what happened to the farking trailer. Now, after reading your post, I'll be obsessing over that question all morning.

It's not just a product. It defines them as a person.

We cannot begin to understand how complete they feel after buying an Apple brand product.

Mercutio74: Egoy3k: That would be a great point if only a large percentage of iphone users jail broke their phone. Also if a large percentage of the jail broken phones were jail broke simply for the purpose of making the OS function differently instead of, you know, piracy.

I'll grant you that, but there are a significant number of people who DO jailbreak their iPhones.

That being said, I guess I'm not above my own criticism. I have a 5th generation iPod and I love the hardware, but run Rockbox on it just so I'm not constantly annoyed.


I have an iPhone 4S and it's a company phone (and no they didn't let me choose my phone) so no jailbreak for me.

That's good news except Apple will have 6.0.1 out soon to fix their map debacle I'm sure.
