Before I start, please moderators don't give me an infraction or anything, i have bought 3.0, though haven't yet installed it as i'm not ready to backup all my apps just yet! I'm not whining about paying the money or doing anything illegal or encouraging others to. But, I remember that it is possible to get the paid firmwares free DIRECT from apple's server. I was wondering, is that actually illegal or not? Some people would say it isn't, because they allow people to get access to it. But this are the argument for it being illegal. - They require you to pay for it - so any means of getting it free is illegal. If you think of it like a shop. Say a sports shop puts a rack of clothes or a thing full of footballs right outside their shop, to attract people's attention and get them inside, and you take one and walk off, it's still illegal. That is basically what people are doing when they get it from apple. I would say it IS illegal, but any other thoughts on the subject? P.S If you even ask how to get it, you will be banned by a mod so fast you won't even be able to say "jailbreak"
