I'm just jailbreaking my iPod Touch (3rd gen)... will I get into trouble by Apple?!

I'm really scared now... should have thought of this before...

EDIT: I did it through this: jailbreakme.com/

Yes, Apple will hunt you down and confiscate your iPod touch.

Just kidding, nothing will happen.

Don't worry about it! Jailbreaking isn't illegal. Also, you can restore your iPod any time, and therefore destroying all the evidence from Apple that you jailbroke your iPod.

Oh thank god for that! :') I'm a worrier...



Just restoring now... I'm too scared heh
I've been jailbreaking since 2007 without an issue. 1 million people jailbroke 4.3.3 using comex's exploit just between now and yesterday. Do you really think Apple cares or can do anything about it? If you look at the notifications in iOS5, I'd argue that they encourage it.

You will not get in trouble by jailbreaking because it is a legal process to do in the U.S., by a DMCA ruling. However, if you should bring your iPod Touch into the Apple store being jailbroken, they will refuse to fix it if anything is wrong with it because you have void your warranty.

Besides that, you are a free man to do what you want with it at your own risk. :):)

?!?

With all due respect, is this a REAL post? "In trouble"? "Too Scared" Really? How old is this person?

I JB my iPod Touch 1G on 1.1.3, and have NEVER regretted it, let alone got "in trouble" or "scared". Every iOS device I have owned since has also been JB.

Worst possible action you will have to take is restore to factory. This post doesn't feel genuine.

I thought I heard someone outside my apartment last night, so I restored just in case. I think they left now...

Official iOS firmware is fine with me. I do not need all these extra things from jailbreaking. The only thing that I have come close to keeping a jailbreak is using whited00r on my iPhone 3G. Then again, I remove the Cydia app because I do not need.
