Can a UDID registration run jailbreak apps and/or tweaks?

    I recently had to replace my iPhone and the worst part is my new one can't be jailbroken :-(
    The main thing I use my jailbroken iPhone for was tethering because the built-in tethering reports to my carrier which is bad
    I used a program called PDAnet.
    i also bought auxo which was my favorite tweak ever

    the Internet is not helping me basically all unable to find out isUDID registrations can allow you to pirate apps I don't care about that.

    but basically it's because it allows to run unsigned code correct?

    My question is can jailbreak tweaks and or other apps like PDAnet run on a iphone with a UDID registration?
    Presumably any app that needs root access wouldn't work but not all tweaks and that would use that. correct?

    Unless you have the source code to compile and sign your own applications, the answer is no it doesn't let you do those things.

    i just figured people run unauthorized published apps with udid registered iPhones
    (either because they payed to be a dev from apple or payed to for a grey market registration from someone else)

    via apps like iresign which doesn't require source code

    Basically my newbie confusion comes from how come it's easier to pirate than it would be running legit jailbroken apps.

    To me it seems that being able to run one kind of unauthorized app would be the same as running another kind of unauthorized app

    Pirated apps are just regular App Store apps. They only use Apple approved APIs to do whatever they do.

    Jailbreak apps have functions that Apple doesn't approve of, so if you could somehow install a jailbreak app onto an unjailbroken device, it won't run, because it calls on functions that Apple won't allow. A jailbroken device, otoh, will allow such functions.

    Why would a lot of people work a lot of hours to develop a jailbreak if this were possible? Common sense should tell you it is not.

    because one would be a free and the other requires money?
    not to mention there is a hacker culture that promotes that stuff.
    why do people put huge man hours in getting linux on toasters and other impractical things

    so people could/probably would put the time in to making jailbreaks even if it was possible, common sense isn't always common

    You obviously missed my point.

    If running jailbreak apps were as simple as your first post implied, it would have been done that way long ago.

    And yes, hackers love spending hours and hours looking for security holes when all they needed to do was join the Apple developer program, something most of them are probably already a member of.
