    ceoSteveJobs:
    Can people please stop jailbreaking the iPhones on display at Apple Stores?


    I kind of see his point though...why do people have to be so immature? I mean is this supposed to be comical or what's the point? All it will do is piss Apple off and make future jailbreaks harder in my opinion.

    Although it isn't directly related, but Apple has made unlocking more difficult. There isn't a unlock for iPhone 3G or 3GS with the newest baseband (6.02 i think).

    Why would you assault someone over them jailbreaking a phone?

    The account may be fake, but I agree with the statement. I remember the same thing happened with the first gen iphone and the same exploit several years ago, and at the that time I had a friend who worked at the apple store and he was constantly having to work over time (or past his normal shift) just to reset every phone back to factory setting.

    Its cool if you jailbreak your own phone, but I don't see the need to drive down to an Apple Store to jailbreak a demo phone.

    i didnt know going to jailbreakme.com constitutes as a 'nerd' act. i didnt even know going to a website automatically qualifies an individual to 'nerd' status.

    are you in grade school?

    It may be a good thing to do. Apple need to address this security issue ASAP!
