    Now that jail breaking is legal, what do we get to look forward to? Are we going to see more APP sites with better deals on APPS? Are we going to see more free APPS ? I'm just curious what benefit of being legal will do. :confused:

    I've heard people saying this and it makes this subject more confusing. What did the recent ruling making jail breaking legal actually mean. Did the ruling just validate and confirm jail breaking legal :confused:

    Someone explained to me jb is legal while installous is not. As installous is like torrentz. It's piracy.

    Installous and Cydia and some others are hacking software to put it on the free market and that i believe this is the illegal aspect of jail breaking.. just my guess, this whole jailbreak business confess the heck out of me:confused:

    Nothing has changed.

    Jailbreaking is STILL legal. Installing paid apps for free is still illegal.

    Jailbreaking is changing the ipad that you own to allow new features.


    installing paid apps for free is stealing, not much to be confused about.

    Legality is not the only problem with jailbreaking.
    Remember jb apps are non curated.
    Android had a recent scare about an app forwarding users details to a Chinese website.

    Yeah well you know what your getting yourself into when you JB. When you jailbreak your device your are actually removing some of apples security checks and allowing any app to do whatever it wants (even app store apps that have been through the review process can be of some danger after JB).
