itunes can't tell if you've jailbroken the device or not

Exactly the reason I am not jailbroken.

But no, using iTunes and the App Store on a Jailbroken iPhone is just like using it on a normal iPhone. They can not trace it, that we know of at least.

Actually, iTunes can recognize jailbroken phone if you have a new Uni-Body MacBooks.

They built this recognition on the new MacBook to prevent jailbroken iPhone from syncing, and even CHARGING your phone.

However, PwnageTool people got it figured out, so it should be okay.

You are flat-out wrong.

1) The problems with entering DFU mode with unibody MacBooks have nothing to do with whether or not the phone is jailbroken. It's due to a bug in the USB drivers/chipsets that shipped with these models.

2) Charging can be done from any USB host, regardless of whether or not the software recognizes the phone. If it provides 5.5V@100mA-500mA over USB, then the iPhone can charge from it.

Thanks for playing.
