    Will you ever be able to update?

    What did people who had jailbroken iOS3 do when iOS4 came out?

    We waited for an iOS 4 jailbreak before we updated. Or we got iPhone 4s and lived with a virgin phone for a few weeks.

    We don't support piracy on MacRumors.

    As mention in every every jb guide;

    1. Wait for there to be a jb for the new release.
    2. Install and run pkgbkup from Cydia
    3. Backup your phone.
    4. Upgrade
    5. jb
    6. Install pkgbkup from Cydia and use it to reinstall your Cydia packages

    The only apps on Cydia that are free are marked free. If you want to talk about stealing apps from developers, find another web site, e.g., stealingappsisforlosers.com. Talking about that on MR violates the MR rules.

    And if there was more wireless providers owners posting here then talk of tethering apps would be taboo too. Stick it to the man, oh but talk about trying to fraudulently exchanging damaged iphones are also taboo. So SJ isn't the man:confused:

    That's a good point. Lots of people here discuss using MyWi, which can be viewed as stealing a paid service offered by AT&T.

    Wow, I think your the first person to ever agree with me on that. Personally I don't condone either action but find it funny when people demean one behavior while boosting another. Yet they are the same thing.

    When I pay $30 a month for unlimited data, I should get unlimited data no matter if I use it on my phone or my computer. It doesn't cost AT&T anything to give me an extra gig every month. With an app, the developer put hours, days, and even months of their life into making the app and they need the money from those sales to make a living.

    Yeah, you should be able to use your data how you want, I agree. I'm all for regulations that allow for that. The fact is though, that isn't how it is as of right now. That 1 gig of data does cost AT&T. It cost the for the data plus the $20 you are depriving (when you deprive someone of something that's stealing) them of. Do you condone credit fraud as well? It's just a drop in the bucket for what credit and insurance companies make. Still doesn't make it right. Is it OK if I water damage my phone and and bleach/color the sensors back white for an exchange? Apple isn't going to really miss the $200-300.

    Or you can update and then start a new thread titled "I accidentally updated my phone, please help me!"

    I like this idea better. I haven't seen one of these threads in a while.
