    Wow .. didnt even think about that .. Wonder how Apple is going to deal with all this ?? I think this jailbreak is going to push Apple into having to respond ( for security purposes )..

    I think this is very wrong. JB by nature isn't a big deal to me and I don't care if people do it to enhance their experience. However I don't like that they feel they should do it at the Apple stores. It creates unnecessary work for the staff and give people a false sense of what they can do on their phones if they aren't the wiser. Not only that, but Apple also can also start locking down the device to where you can't go anywhere on the net except to a restricted list. This also takes away from the shopper.

    The simple fix is of course to block the sites that host this JB. I also think the ones who JB those Apple store phones need to grow up. You gain nothing by doing this but creating unnecessary work for the staff. JB at your leisure on your own time. It's like going to the car dealership and taking a car for a test drive and tweaking the car before it's returned to the dealership. At least here in Texas, some dealers let you take the car by yourself for a test.

    Yup....not to mention that jailbreaking a phone YOU DON'T OWN is probably illegal, and you could theoretically be arrested if you're caught.

    ^^I didn't even think about that. I think the ruling only applies to your property, not someone else's.

    Funny, but so so wrong. Stunts like that just give Apple more ammunition to maybe have congress reverse their decision.

    I was thinking about this some more, and jailbreaking an iPhone in an Apple store is technically computer tampering, and that is a violation of both state and Federal law and could land you in prison for up to five years. If Apple really wanted to make an example of someone, they could. Not worth the risk, IMHO.

    Of course, Apple has blocked the jailbreak sites, so the issue is moot for now.

    It's hardly moot. Just bring in your android phone and make a hotspot and you can bypass their blocks.

    LOL I didn't think of that. The potential prison term isn't moot, either, though.
