It's pointless advertising jb service on site where there are clear instructions on how to do it. I think the moon today is positioned to encourage maximum paranoia.
Jb for 2 is coming out, matter of time.
Any one of you could make money jailbreaking iOS and performing general software related fixes. Extra 1000 a month is always welcome. Especially now that iPad and iPhone are pretty much mainstream, a lot of people own them.
At that pretty much no competition, since most people adopt attitudes where they are sure jb is free since they did it. Thing that you all missing is that not everyone has the head for it.

I would go as much as $50 if it was the only alternative. To be able to have it a month in advance before free version is out there, probably $20 would be as high as I could pay.
EDIT: Not sure who is going into the JB business. I thought it was GMouse so I quoted him/her. Bob is confused apparently. Anyway, whoever it is, here you go.

You will find lots of folks addicted to free and when you dare to charge for something that is/will be available for free, darn you all to the hotter areas of Heck. You horrific old fart, how dare you? They might say that. Well except for Sweetpoison, she is a doll.
Hot, too. But I digress.
I say go for it, my man. Or girl, not sure of your gender. Make some big dollars, do not cheat, be sure to pay the tax man, and live the good life on your dollars. Earned honestly, Bob wishes you all the luck.
I am all for making dollars by the heap. Nothing wrong unless you FU a few iPads. So make sure you address the 'what if' issues. Also mange sure that you warn people that their warranty is null and void if Apple discovers the j/b.
Luck to Ya, Bob

Actually it is coming back slowly.
OK and thanks. Was not aware.

I also know those gathered here would likely never pay for a JB and I know that the moderators take a dim view of advertising such things on the forums.
From reading the comments, it appears some here would pay for a JB.
I also know that selling the software is likely wrong because it is offered by the developer(s) for free and selling it is almost always illegal unless you cut a deal with the developers. And they retain the right to start selling it on disk if they want to. Even though they also offer a free version to anyone and everyone.
And I know that it is simple to steal the programs and put them on a CD and resell them to the masses with very little chance they will be caught; if they are, not much will happen.
The Wallpapers part of this forum and other forums likely contains wallpapers that the poster has not right to offer to the masses without permission. Not wanting to argue that issue here, just saying.
But it is not illegal to charge for a service. We could argue the minutia and at what point do you cross the line between legal and helpful and outright theft. I say performing a JB for a fee is legal unless this is strictly prohibited by the developers. Then again, I am not so sure they would have a case if all the entrepreneur is doing is the physical JB.
That said, I know there are many people that want someone else to do the heavy lifting. Although they can get something like JB/unlock software on the net for nothing, and although it is easy to use, there are those skittish folks that still think a JB is best left to the experts and chances are, they simply believe that everyone offering such services is an expert.
Anyone want to discuss this? I can see it being legal or illegal depending on how you interpret the law. I can't, for example, buy one copy of Windows and offer installation as a service if I use the same disk thousands of times. Or once, if I have already installed the software.
I can offer Winders installation and setup services for the masses, however. Tens of thousands of people do this kind of thing.
