    I was wondering how much people donate to the developers of the jailbreak?

    The amount of hours put into cracking the code a multi billion dollar company PLUS coming out with a way that is pretty much idiot proof for people like me seems like a ton of work. For them to put it out there completely free seems like a huge gesture of good will that should be rewarded with donations. If I were them and didn't get enough donations for future jailbreaks I'd simply release a tethered version for free and a untethered version for $3.

    So, who is going to donate and how much? I'll personally be in for $10 :)

    I'm all about supporting but putting it out for free is what most hacks want to do , they could take there exploits to apple if they just wanted the cash.

    I'd say that's simply speculation to say Apple would pay them for the jailbreak. Who says Apple would even pay them for it?

    The facts are that:
    1) they put in a ton of hours to help out the entire iPhone community
    2) these are regular guys like you & me w/ bills to pay just like the rest of us but used their time helping us instead.

    I'd say it's a general expectation that people donate to them for their time they could have used working a job to make money to pay their bills if the jailbreak helped and so they continue to come out with jailbreaks in the future.

    I donated for the 5.0 jailbreak (4S), so I will be donating for this one. These guys don't need to do this at all for us, they deserve all they can get for the hard work.

    Also, OP, it does not matter how much others donate. You donate how much you feel they deserve.

    Different questions different threads, but nice try ;)

    I'm asking how much people donate with a poll of different donation amounts attached. If you can find me a thread with those two things on the front page I'm all ears but otherwise keep your negativity to yourself thanks :)

    To you this might make sense. To me I'd like to know amounts to get a basic idea, if you don't want to answer though that's fine just don't reply to the thread.

    What's the point of knowing how much was donated? If I can afford to donate 100 dollars and you can only afford a dollar, what makes me better than you? Or will you donate for others that can't? These are 2 of many questions that I could ask you besides, Whats the point of knowing how much everyone donated?

    I donated $600, but only because I didn't take delivery of my Lambo this morning.

    A personal curiosity to see a general idea of how much the Jailbreak Dev's get compensated.

    Don't want to answer? Don't answer :)

    Sorry, didn't attach a poll answer for bad sarcasm :rolleyes:

    You should start another poll:

    "How much are you personally offended when someone starts a thread you disapprove of?"
    1. None at all
    2. A bit, people should search more
    3. Frankly, it keeps me up at night.
    4. I have nothing better to do with my time and take personal offense when someone dares make a thread I disapprove of. These boards are MINE, you understand, MINE!! I will now be-little you.

    Thanks for the perspective Sedrick, hopefully the guys earlier who were getting their panties in a bunch read your response and learn to relax.

    I'll likely donate, but I have excess funds. I've donated in the past, so why not heh.

    Why do people make threads like this? What business is it of anyone's who donates and who doesn't? The Devs obviously make enough to keep providing us with Jailbreaks..is this just so some folks can pat themselves on the back and make it seem like they are "cool" for donating 10-20 measley bucks?

    Why do people make posts like this? What business is it of yours if I was curious? You assume the Devs make enough but as simply assuming. And so what if certain people want to pat themselves on the back for donating to a good cause?

    Get over it and have a nice day :)

    You didn't include an option for $0.00. What a useless poll.

    Learn to read then instead of assuming you know what a thread is about :rolleyes:

    I wanted to know the amount that is being given by the people donating. I don't care about the people who find $1 too expensive.

    Doesn't matter.

    I'm curious.

    I made a thread asking a question.

    If you don't like the thread and don't want to participate get lost.
