    Rumors going around that greenposi0n will not allow cracked apps to run properly.

    Waiting 30 days plus for this JB and now it might be crippled.
    Wonderful. :mad:

    edit:

    Looks like they have decided against such restrictions:

    As much as we hate it, we cannot block piracy with the jailbreak. It's possible, but those methods will just be worked around by pirates.

    link doesn't work. i'm lost, are you saying that you can run unsigned codes or not? because part of jailbreaking for me is running unsigned codes, not meaning piracy though. i.e. stuff found on cydia, 3rd party apps that can't go on Apple's store.

    Let me see if I understand your logic...

    Because you may actually have to pay for apps instead stealing them, you consider this to be "crippled"?

    You can disregard this thread now. They have decided not to block installous which they wanted to do.

    musclenerd and others argued against the plan and they won out.

    btw, it seems that now progress is either they can not get the exploit working on 100% of the devices or everything is good but they are adding appleTV support now.
    Who knows...

    No, not saying that at all. This proposal would have enforced a limitation. I was not making a statement on piracy.

    you know, it' snot just about stealing. Running unsigned code is not stealing nor piracy. just, some people use it for piracy people.

    I guess it all depends on how you define "cracked". Generally speaking, a cracked piece of software is something that has been "acquired" by some means other than what the owner / author / publisher / developer intended and this usually means not paying for it. I am not a choir boy by any means, but let's call a spade a spade, shall we? I am not your mother, your priest or your lawyer so I personally don't care how you "acquire" your software, but regardless of your intentions, cracked software is theft, pure and simple.

    don't forget to include music. i'm positive that you'll have a hard time finding someone who hasn't stolen at least one song.
