    I was wonder if pwned firmwares are known as cracked/illegal firmwares. I see it as copy of a firmware, in a sense all that is different is jailbreaking and iptf is a jialbreak supporting community....

    It is a copy of a Firmware that you do not hold the copyrights to.

    Then customizing it without consent, that makes it worse.

    Then sharing it, makes more worse.

    Umm. No. If you buy a CD, you have a right to that CD. If you rip the music off of it, you don't have the right to that Music. Only the CD.

    It's almost the same principles. I think.

    Ow. I think my Brain just imploded.

    Now it's seeping out my funholes. This fails...

    Does that mean iTunes is illegal, cause it rips the music off CD's, and makes a copy on your Harddrive =O!!

    I think iTunes makes contracts with record companies
