    You know this isn't going to help, right? The n00bs will still ask n00bish questions.

    Here's a question: if I bought the latest iPhone/iPad today (insert today's date), could I jailbreak it still?

    If it comes with iOS 6.1.2 or lower, yes. Otherwise, no.

    It all rests on what model of idevice you purchased to what iOS is currently on it.

    To slim down the dumbass questions like "my iPhone is in safe mode after installing a tweak what did I do wrong???" or "I'm on 6.1.3 can I jailbreak?". By having threads like this at the top it'll hopefully reduce the volume of questions being asked.

    The only 'someone' who can sticky a threads are admins and moderators and they have zero interest in doing so.

    I would say get off macrumors if you can't handle people asking questions. It's what the forum is for and if you don't like it move on. We have all been "there" and needed help. Give help when someone needs it but making this a sticky seems pointless.

    You've missed the point entirely. It's not people asking questions, it is people asking the same questions over and over again. And 'no', we have not all been "there", I always search before asking a question and I always read the threads on the first page to make sure I am not duplicating any other thread. Obviously, the MR powers that be do not have a problem with this, with one exception. If someone starts a thread that duplicates what's in the News forum, they shut those threads down in a nanosecond.

    I do agree with your point that making this thread a sticky. People who are too lazy to search or even read the titles of existing threads will simply ignore a sticky thread.

    So it doesn't bother you when people go through the whole account creation process just to ask a question that can be answered by googling for 3 seconds?

    Like making a yahoo account just to ask a question like "why is the sky blue"

    No it doesn't "bother" me. If it bothers you maybe you have some unaddressed underlying issues.

    everyday there is a new account asking the same question with a new link.



    people get annoyed. its just human nature.


    the point of this thread is not to bash new members is to help them find the answers they seek to their "genuine" doubt.



    now stop trolling for someone with infinite patience such as yourself i find it curious this well-intended helpful thread rattles your cage.

    Good intentions or not, this won't be stickied. An idea similar to this would have been done by mods by now, if statistically it would deture said topics.
    Sad to say, the majority of the people that make those topics wouldn't search or even scan the first page before making a topic.
    Its human nature to be lazy and expect answers to be brought to you. The users that actually would search, likely already have.
