    So? Obviously the act of jail breaking alone is not illegal, it's what users usually do with a jail broken idevice that is illegal. How many people do you think jailbreak without stealing apps? :rolleyes:

    Whatever, I'm sure you agree with the act because you yourself are a thief.

    Wowzers.

    I don't know why I'm responding to this nonsense, but....

    I haven't jailbroken my iPhone since I had the 1st gen. I haven't had the need to do it. When I did jailbrake, I never stole apps, I never used Installus (sp?). I mostly did it for Winterboard and SBSettings.

    You should really learn a little restraint when it comes to hurling insults at people you don't know.:rolleyes:

    It would have been a little more mature to admit that you were wrong.

    Straight from Nintendo:

    Can I Download a Nintendo ROM from the Internet if I Already Own the Authentic Game?

    There is a good deal of misinformation on the Internet regarding the backup/archival copy exception. It is not a "second copy" rule and is often mistakenly cited for the proposition that if you have one lawful copy of a copyrighted work, you are entitled to have a second copy of the copyrighted work even if that second copy is an infringing copy. The backup/archival copy exception is a very narrow limitation relating to a copy being made by the rightful owner of an authentic game to ensure he or she has one in the event of damage or destruction of the authentic. Therefore, whether you have an authentic game or not, or whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet.


    Don't worry, I'm sure some thief on here will help you though.

    Actually, I was dead on and far from wrong. I accused him of using the jail break to download illegal apps, he than admitted it was used to illegally download a Pokemon game. See my previous post with a quote straight from Nintendo that downloading ROMS are illegal regardless of a physical ownership.

    So the real question is, maybe you should admit you were wrong which you clearly were. My hunch was dead on. :)

    No, you implied that the act of jailbreaking is breaking the law.

    Whatever dude, go cause trouble in another thread. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, one can always tell when a troll is cornered when he tries to put words in one's mouth. No where did I ever say jail breaking was illegal, you foolishly implied that from my comment. It's unfortunate you aren't mature enough to handle a conversation and resort to running away, alas, trolls usually do though. :rolleyes:

    To the OP, I don't know how to help, but your welcome for the free bumps I gave this thread. Happy holidays. :D

    Yes, I'm a troll. I've been a member here for 3 years leading up to this moment, so that I can troll this particular thread.:rolleyes:

    Please read how the thread progressed. The OP merely stated that he had issues with his jailbroken iPod touch. He did not discuss any of the game ROM stuff until after you told him what he was doing is illegal (all you knew up to that point was that he had a jailbroken iPod touch, which isn't illegal).

    I posted that the act of jailbreaking itself is not illegal, and even posted an article to back that claim up. The proper response from you would have been to clarify your statement, and to admit that your first post was inaccurate. Instead, you went on the offensive, called me a thief, called the OP a thief, and then called me a troll.

    I think everyone involved in this thread knows what you are. EDIT: and looking at your posting history confirmed it.

    If I read it correctly, you were trying to upgrade it when the process had a sh*tfit on you, are you able to re-download the correct IPSW to update the iPod, and then option+click and select it - it could have been an issue with the firmware download.
