    Anybody have people that get all mad at you because you jailbroke? My brother keeps getting mad at me for jailbreaking and I keep telling him that he can jailbreak his iPod touch too but he just likes to complain. Does anyone else have a problem with jailbreaking? It's legal so whats the big deal? I paid $500 for an iPad and I will do with it what I wish.

    a friend of mine is the exact same... He gets all freaked out, like he's an Apple purist and always complains that the one time he tried it, Winterboard slowed down his 3g..

    People think that it will hurt their device.. cuz of the break part of the word jailbreak. They feel like they have spend so much $$ on their device that the warranty will be voided!

    Yes it's your choice however many get into trouble in jail breaking and then. Hve to try to revert back to original state and for some people that is a pain as it does not always go as expected. Some users start discussing pirate software that's where it ends in this and also iphone4 can lead to banning. No matter what type of device is sold there are always a small percentage that want to break it open and push the limits to get extra features.

    To be fair, consider the words, Greenpois0n and Jailbreak, the word you mentioned. Both bad words with negative connotations. Add to it what Apple says about it and many people will likely think it is bad. We are here reading the Hacker section of the forum and that word is often considered to represent a bad thing.

    All in all, it is indeed a bad thing as far as most users are concerned. No wonder the public has a concern.

    Purists will be purists. However, I respect those that have been able to do this. I tend to me more on cautious side cause I know Murphy's Law follows me around and I can't go w/o my blessed iPad.

    I haven't had that problem yet. The most common reaction I get is wonder, especially when they see my wifi iPad doing mapping GPS. One of my students is the founder of the ModMyI site, so I've seen him playing with the jail broken stuff for a long time. In fact, being around the college-aged folks, most do have a positive outlook on jailbreaking.

    I love having jailbroken and have no regrets. People who have issues with it are too scared to try it themselves :)

    Exactly. They think it will kill their device so they never try. If they would try then they would love it!

    Why should anyone really care what you have done to your Ipad. You brought it and as far as I am concerned you aren't stealing anything, so what's the big deal.:eek:

    Sorry, I left out the part where I have a bluetooth GPS puck, but it isn't recognized by the stock iOS. Mapping GPS was the only reason I was still using my old HP Ipaq 2215 PDA. loving that I can GPS with my iPad now.

    I hear more and more about people getting worried about all this hacking and jailbreak stuff...well I'm a pretty lay type of person...gues you'd call me a layman, or however it's spelled but I got iPad Video Lesson Offer Video Lessons - The Fast & Easy Way to Learn Your iPad! and with some of the tutorials in this video I think I really am a master of my iPad. Of course, I still mainly use it for movies and games and just playing around in general...but I love it!!!!

    I have to admit, the online marketers are getting a lot more creative these days.
