    wow, JB via safari browser? That means anyone can go to an apple retail store, use any of their many iPhone 4 demo stations and jailbreak their entire fleet of iPhone 4 demos for sh*ts and giggles.

    Just lettin' ya'll know.
    :cool:

    I can't seem to find the article, but I remember that there were four guys who jailbroke iPhones in an Apple store, and got banned from the store.

    Would be funny, but Ironically there are already a good deal of jailbroken devices in the apple store, since generally alot of the employees phones are jailbroken and often the point of sale phones they use are as well.

    Really? I remember reading an article a while ago where an Apple employee tried to get a customer "arrested" when he had a jailbroken iPhone in the store.

    Only possible way would be DCMA - circumvention of copyright protections.

    Which has just be shot down permanently.

    Yeah. I don't think there are any grounds for jailing a jailbreaker. Lol. But maybe there was an argument that turned into a "you're fired get out of the store" to escorted out of the store.

    This is tempting....I might head up to the Apple Store tomorrow...

    If they catch me, what's the worse they can do other than call the Party Van on me?

    It'll probably go as well for you as it did for the morons that tried this with 1.1.1 or whichever 1.x was able to do the same via safari.

    Yeah, I remember people did this back in the 1.1.1 days. I don't think any thing came of it except for frustrated Apple Store employees who were forced to setup the phones again.

    I'm no lawyer, however I can see "vandalism" accusations coming from this.

    You kids have fun, though the question arises, "what's the point"?

    I live in the UK, but i saw this and thought that it would be good for you US people to use.

    Its now Legal to jailbrake your iPhone.

    No need to be such a downer, just making uninformed people aware.

    Could they potentially block jailbreakme.com on their demo models?

    I'm sure they could restrict web access on their iPhones
