and jailbreak the demo units. It should be interesting to see what the apple stores start doing once they realize their demo units have been hacked, which.... come to think of it... would probably make Apple quite upset.


Oh well, what's a few days of fun before the banhammer gets dropped on us all?

Install all the applications you can, mess with the springboard, play a little lights out- But don't get caught.

You do realize that workers have to clean that up don't you? They are going to have to reset the iPod to factory default, set up the display again etc.

You are taking time out of their day for, I'm not even sure what you are trying to prove, but anyway please think of others before doing stuff like this.

I assure you I have no real ill intent here. I merely think it would be neat to walk into an apple store and be able to see the ipod touch with its potential unlocked.


Now, what I was really interested in seeing if Apple actually WOULD restore the iPods to their default settings, since jailbreaking according to them causes irreparable damage to the devices. Most of you will probably think I'm an ******* for suggesting this, but some people like me think Apple dug themselves into a bit of a hole with their core fanbase, and a little tom-foolery should be expected.

This is actually the best idea I've heard all day. I'm totally doing this when I go in to get my touch looked at.

It's not like they are doing anything important, other than catching flies...

Beside, that would give them something to ponder on....

There's nothing even remotely interesting about this idea...

Yeah and then maybe after that we can all go to best buy and turn all the TVs all the way up, and then we can put stink bombs in cloths at Macy's....oh wow, and then put dirty magazines in with the kids books at the book store. Wow, the teenaged aggression is overwhelming..

actually it doesnt matter, all hardware except for the ?tvs (they cant be edited without a pasword) are restored to "Apple Store Demo" every day, as users can edit and deliete cirtain things on the ipod anyway, although i cant quite imagine what would happen if they where jailbroken...

Gawd, would that be priceless. Someone not knowing anything about an iPhone rolls into the store and exclaims, "I can get the iPhone on T-Mobile?!" A mob of people, and more. I would pay money to see that.

But, I don't think its a bad idea. Because, do you sometimes see the junk that people put on the computers there? Besides, the Apple Geeks won't notice until someone points it out to them.:D:apple:

This would be awesome fun... if we were all still 12 years old.

Oh well, back to the grown up fun.

:rolleyes:

See, that's funny to me. I'm not quite sure where all of you go off saying this is a ridiculous and immature idea, it makes me think half of you consider jailbreaking the iPod touch or iPhone a bad thing, which we all know it isn't.

Not trying to bash anyone, but have a little whimsy in your life, it isn't like you'll be less of a good person for it.



Also, I do appreciate the people who are against the idea remaining civil about disagreeing with me, it's good to see a forum where someone isn't instantly torn apart, even if some of the comments were a bit sarcastic.
