Should add iPads and iPods to that list. But guaranteed, even with the sticky people are still going to make threads.

Most of the time, this question comes up from newbies. I can guarantee you that half of these are trolls. If this forum had a rule where newbies needed at least 10 or so posts before they could create a new thread then it would eliminate many of these threads. I even suggested this to the mods but never heard anything back.

Jailbreaks/IOS Hacks
the jailbreaking forum should have a survey to fill out before you can post here, like "have you googled for the answer?" "are you asking if a device can be jailbroken? if so, please check this link: (link here to if your device can be jailbroken)" and something like "if you are asking about an upcoming jailbreak, please dont. we know no more than you"

just my two cents...

At the iPhone hacks section.
And also there's nothing you can do to downgrade your 4S or i5.
Sorry, no matter how many different ways you ask the same question or how many fake sites and youtube videos you came across its still a NO.

I think we're getting trolled, with people making brand new accounts just to ask the question. New posters should need like 10-20 posts to start a thread or it should show a warning before it's postable with what ios versions are jailbreakable

Guess the summer is coming and nicer weather.
Not many want to sit behind their computers all day moderating posts and threads:D

They don't actually have to moderate if they make newbies to make 10 posts before creating a thread.

If they did this, the posts and new threads would go down dramatically, which is why they don't do it. They'd lose money.

Not every n00b starts threads without searching.

Very try, but in my years in the computer industry, you have to realize that too many people don't know how to conduct a proper search. Well, and many are just lazy... Still, ignoring them works well, or kindly pointing them to the information they are seeking does to. Often they don't return, but some I'm sure stay and join. Flaming them doesn't help them, or the flamer. Common sense isn't widespread across the species, sadly...

I remember back in the beginning when I was a 'n00b', looking for software updates and being told 'it's available via anonymous FTP'. I knew what FTP was, but not 'anonymous ftp'. I asked, and was immediately descended on and ripped to shreds by several people, one declaring that I 'should just stop trying to use a computer and stick to jerking off'. Yeah, very creative, and extra helpful... Someone finally explained it to me, and roasted the roasters in the process. I try to never forget that experience. But I see your point to that too many people don't RTFM or exploit common tools to find answers. Those types will never disappear.

I'd also like to suggest a change in your sig: trag·e·dy /ˈtrajidē/ Noun - 1. An event politicians from both parties exploit to reduce liberty and grow government. See 'Transportation Security Administration', and 'Department of Homeland Security'.
