    Seems like the DarkApples team is working on how to install Cydia onto a non-jailbroken device. So far their progress is this:

    They've converted the Cydia Deb into a ipa file
    Using the ipa file they drag it into itunes and then sync into the device
    Their device now has Cydia

    Problems:
    Packages that require Mobile Substrate can't run yet such as Winterboard, SBsettings, ect. Other apps that don't run on mobile substrate run well.

    That is awesome! And will be really convenient to use instead of redsn0w or whatever.

    Wow, I didn't even think this was possible.
    That's pretty cool, would be nice for people who don't want to go the the hassle of a jailbreak or are worried about it. They should make a version that only includes apps that work on it without Mobile Substrate.
    Very nice find.

    But, if it doesn't have MobileSubstrate, then what's the point?

    well it's completely pointless because it would need root privileges to edit ANYTHING... And that's basically what a jailbreak does, gives the user root privileges to modify anything they want.

    And how do we know there just not jailbroken? I mean there IS NO DIFFERENCE between a non-jb device and a jb device, the only one is root access. Having Cydia only makes it look like it's jailbroken.
