    Apple says jailbreaking causes Device and application instability, Unreliable voice and data, Disruption of services, Shortened battery life and Inability to apply future software updates.

    Fear mongering much? We take the same risks with our MacBooks when installing unauthorized applications or modifications to our macbooks. Maybe you should put a warning up for MacBook owners too? They may not know the risks.

    Sometimes I think Apple don't even know about their own DFU mode. :/

    Really, i think this is all BS.
    I think this is just to stop people from using cracked apps..
    Apple: if you want to stop people from jailbreaking, add more features to the OS.

    I think its more to do with stopping unlocking than anything else. They could and still have the ability to stop cracked apps, but, they are ignoring it because it makes their case against jailbreaking look better.

    Their so limiting when it comes to their software, it's disgusting and unprofessional. If they were professional, they would care about what the comsumer wants, instead of their wallets.
