"Sometimes average users need a bit of a slap to get them to comprehend why they're doing something...." - Aduumzor (I don't know if the quotes been actually used but its mine now Please Register or Log in to view images ) Recently Pwnage 2.0 was released to Mac users a couple hours ago. I didn't notice until tonight that it was released. When I found out Pwnage 2.0 was released I hopped on the band wagon and started the download as fast as possible with speeds at 15 kbs/s. I didn't realize what I was doing until the download was down at 67%. Why was I downloading this? First I don't have a Mac, I have a Hackintosh instead but I won't go into that. Second, I'm truthfully admitting, that I don't need a jailbreak. Like really, when I was back in the jailbroken 1.1.x (replace x with whatever number from 1 - 4) I was joyed with excitement. Playing games on my iPod, now that was epic. The applications were alright, but after time played out, I ended up barely using them, just something to slow down the OS and clutter my springboard. The application I really ever utilized was the Maps Offline as a very cheap map source. The rest just sat there, doing nothing. I'm not saying jailbreaking is a wrong thing, surely for iPhone users jailbreaking is only the beginning process of getting their precious mobile phone unlocked. But really other than that, it's lost its rep. Wasn't Installer/Cydia the temporary replacement for the App Store until Apple allowed third legal distribution of third party applications? Now that the App Store is here, we can all tell that its going to beat down Installer/Cydia in the long run.The quality is just too superior than jailbroken applications. Little to no applications ever released on Installer or Cydia have the near quality of some of the good applications currently in the App Store. But what about emulators you ask? Emulators only bring pirated software and games, like we don't have enough on our iPods? But what about customization? That's probably one of the biggest reason anybody would go to jailbreaking because you can customize your baby. I'll give you that. "But what about cracking App Store apps?" Your despicable for saying. You've bought an iPhone/iPod Touch thats at least a $200+ piece of hardware. You're saying you can't squeeze a couple dollars to get some top grade applications? Give me a break! That's not only pirating but that's being senseless. More items to add to the pirated list of music, movies, and emulation software? I realize now that I don't need a jailbreak unless something extraordinary comes up. App Store fulfilled my request for third party applications and I don't need to go and risking my iPod to get more pirated items on it. Pay for an application once, it'll feel good. Not just for the developer but for the satisfaction that the application will give you and how high the quality is. In no way I'm against jailbreaking. I just see that Installer/Cydia is more wrong than right. Jailbreaking unlocks limits to controlling your iPod/iPhone. From tests before, we see that jailbreaking sometimes messes with iPods giving them bad results. I see why Apple controls what goes into their products. Why you can't just buy parts and build a Mac or an iPod. The software is amazing, and shouldn't be tempered with for absolute fun. Apple tries to give users the maximum efficiency their products can go and it works. Again, I say I'm not against jailbreaking but rather see it as a more of an iPhone directed feature for mostly unlocking rather than an iPod Touch.
