    Why wont apple just make a script that if it detects a Jailbreak.app or anything like it on the springboard it bricks your iPod touch... so you would need to unbrick it and if you JB again you get the sack of bricks! I meen are they really that stupid? Even thought I want the Jailbreak but...

    I think then peopole would just downgrade to 1.1.1-1.1.4
    I think they would need a new version or whatever its called

    because they arent allowed to do that, they dont like us jailbreaking but its not illegal. If they were to brick our ipods we have like every to kill them lol. If its not illegal then they cant brick our ipods and then they would have to pay money to fix or give us another one

    Actually its illeagal if apple bricks out ipod touch's because its jailbroken. We paid $300-$500 for it, so we can do whatever we want with it.

    that is exactly true. they cant purposely sabotage a device of some one else, who has bought it and owns it, just because they want to make more money by having them buy their stuff instead.

    once someone buys it from apple, its theirs, and they have no right restricting that person's personal use of that item.

    if we own it then they can only do stuff to it with our permision. If they put it in a new fw and told people it was in there than they could do it because you downloaded the fw with the knowlage that it is going to happen

    if im not mistaken (probably am) Jailbreaking isnt "illegal" but it just voids your warranty so they can care less....Jailbreaking just makes more people buy ipod touches!

    You don't "own" the firmware. You own a license to use it, just like pretty much any other intellectual property.

    We also own our computers, but only own a liscence to use the software we put on it.... that doesn't mean we can't freely add stuff to it, or modify the software to suit our needs. Unless it is clearly stipulated in the liscencing agreement that modifications to the software may void your warranty of it.
