    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.
