    Ok, so I've quickpwned my phone before, but it was on windows and didnt have this problem....sorry if its a stupid question, but I cant figure it out. :p

    I downloaded quickpwn for Mac and it downloaded the .torrent file, but I cant open it! Do I need another program to "unzip" or open this torrent file? It asked me what program I wanted to open it with, Apple Script was highlighted so I chose that one and it says it cannot open.

    Can someone please tell me how to open this program. :rolleyes: Thanks! :eek:

    That's not a program, it's a torrent to get the program. Download a Torrent Client such as Azureus. :)

    Only if their content is illegal. Torrenting (and peer to peer networks) can be used to distribute open source material, freeware, and public domain files.

    But 99.7% of it is all illegal, yes.

    Not unless you're downloading pirated software. You can get anything on a torrent including freeware, which isn't illegal.

    There's nothing illegal about torrents.
    It's some of the content distributed via torrents that may be illegal.

    I'd cite my source, but the forum rules prohibit linking to that site... :D

    Must be, oh, I don't know... illegal? :p
