    Apple don't realise they aren't going to stop anyone Jailbreaking. Only 5% of people said they would stop Jailbreaking there devices if Apple made it illegal. Apple might as well give up.

    EDIT: To sum this article up, the developer licence agreement that app store developers have to agree to says that you cannot jailbreak.

    lawl.
    Apple's so desperate to have a monopoly when it comes to apps that it actually makes me laugh. In my opinion this makes apple look so insanely money hungry that its almost impossible to comprehend. I mean all people that are jailbreaking for is themes and emulators ( for the most part ). That does not affect the itunes app store AT ALL because they dont offer these two things... so they arent losing money.. but i guess the cydia store popped a few veins when they heard about it.

    They may not be. But the developers (mainly indie ones) sure are. And quite a lot of it. The App Store is not about Apple. Its about the developers who develop for it. They want to keep developers developing for the App Store.

    That's a bit excessive. I'm sure that people who develop Cydia apps will probably just start working under aliases.

    The only person I can see this affecting is Zottd.

    I was going to ask how this is legal, but I suppose Apple can do whatever they want with their own app store.

    SkylarEC summarizes it perfectly. It's nothing to worry about.

    Funny how people suddenly believe this is possible. Such a contract would violate the US constitution and would be viod if ever brought infront of a judge. However banning people from using apple software to do these things is perfectly legal

    i wonder how it hurts apple that cracked apps are fueled by apps on cydia...

    and if the apps on cydia where on the appstore, apple could make money off them.
