Will you Jailbreak your new iPhone 4G/HD?
How many of you will jailbreak your new iphone once its released? What will be that one thing that's missing that will make you have to jailbreak it? For me its iBlacklist, if the app store had this app I would never jailbreak it.

BiteSMS. Being able to quickly reply to texts has reshaped my iPhone experience.
Infinidock. There's no reason to limit that dock to 4 icons. I have 5 first-party and 5 third-party apps that I use consistently throughout the day, and I'd like them all in the dock.
SBSettings. Apple needs a lesson on efficiency.
Lockinfo. There's no reason not to display information and notifications on the locks screen.
LiveClock and WeatherIcon. I hate looking at a fake temperature on the weather icon, and a static analog clock. It's irritating. The Calendar icon displays live info, why not the weather and clock icons?
However even if Apple solved all of these, I'd still jailbreak because I like being able to get waaaay too expensive apps for free.

I haven't ever jailbroken my iphone but if the final release of 4.0 lacks quick access to settings, a better notification system, and still doesn't allow info to be displayed on the lock screen then I'll be eagerly awaiting a jailbreak.
I can put up with most aspects of the closed experience but when it comes to just plain stupid censures I can't support it.

Well I didn't JB my 3GS so I'm not going to JB my HD/G4 either. I just do not see the point. The iPhone does what I need it to, that's why I bought it. OS 4 is going to give me even more things that I didn't so once again what's the point of a person like me doing a JB.

Also, I don't have a credit card, so when I want more iTunes credit to buy APPS... I have to buy a prepaid credit card. In Canada, you can't use iTunes cards to buy apps. It's much more difficult to buy apps in Canada than in America.

But, to each his/her own. That's just my opinion.

I REALLY want that new BMW, but they are asking too much money for it... maybe I should just steal it. People can try to justify stealing apps/music/software any way they want, but it doesn't make them any less of a thief. Just because you want something doesn't mean that you are entitled to it. The app is the developers property... they can set whatever price they want for it. You can decide whether or not it is worth it. If you don't want to pay the price, you can't have it. Just because you probably won't get caught doesn't make stealing OK. Character is how we behave when no one is watching. Come on people... show a little character.

As far as the new iPhone and jailbreaking, of course I'll be jailbreaking it. If you can't mod it, why own it?

The legality of it is very gray. Apple will tell you that it is against the law. There's no case of anyone being tried for a jailbroken device. There should actually be a ruling on this sometime this year. Jailbreaking for iPhone OS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
