    HOLY SH*T !!! i nearly flipped when i saw this ! but it isnt ALL that bad.

    Well this basically means if you jailbreak your device, you "reveal" the digital watermark, and even if you do a full restore, the watermark is still there. Kind of like how the physical water damage indicator works.

    So, has Apple intimidated anyone here? i havent done anything stupid enough to make me go to the Apple Store for repairs, So to me this is just another feature Apple is dropping in. i'll surely be jailbreaking, unless the watermark is actually visible [ i.e. on the screen, an intentionally stuck pixel or something... ]

    Well if a iDevice is out of it's warranty I personal did really don't care unless the watermark is bother some. And doesn't apple need to add that into hardware and software not just software.

    Guys this is bullsh*t, already confirmed by musclenerd that went thru the code.

    There is no OTA upgrade code in iOS 4.0.

    Don't screw up your iPhone and you won't have to worry about it.

    That was OTA locking, where it was rumored that youre iDevice could be disabled if AT&T can see that your device was jailbroken. but that was proved wrong [ Look at the date of that tweet ]. This is different, this actually voids your warranty if you jailbreak. and your warranty is always void. its a feature built into iOS 4.1, unlike the previous rumored OTA locking.


    Agreed, i have one iPod touch that basically committed suicide after i was out of the warranty period. Now i have a new iPod touch thats only 4 months in, if i jailbreak and [ in the rare event that ] something goes wrong... im screwed.

    how many ppl jailbreak and how much AT&T would lose i would suspect that they wouldn't care.

    Just like ISP trying to stop you downloading movies they will never stop it.

    No, they arent.

    iPhone or iPod touch users both have the knife against their warranty's throat.

    But this is much different from the AT&T controlling issue. In fact, AT&T has nothing to do with it. its All Apple, all in iOS4.
