    This is interesting... What will SkylarEC do?

    This prospect is very disturbing and could have devastating repercussions throughout the community.

    this wont stop them...

    A) how would apple know?
    B) hasn't this always been accepted, or implied to be in the agreement?
    c) having it in writing wont change much.

    At least they admit it wont stop people. However devs may think twice before releasing a rejected app....instead they will prob just change the name and picture to throw apple off (like they'll decompile it).

    Still, Apple need to relaise that as long as the iphone is a closed platform this will continue....the day when everything that we can do on cydia can be done legally on the appstore (minus piracy of course) then it will be a good day.

    That only states three things:
    • An developer can not use Apple software to create jailbreaking utilities/tools.
    • A developer may not use Apple software to create code signing utilities (such as ldid).
    • A developer can not distribute iPhone/iPod touch applications created with Apple software via any other means but Apple themselves.


    Gcc is not Apple software, so I will continue to compile jb apps using it. If apple wants to complain about developing on OS X, then I will simply plug in my Linux machine that has the complete working/patched/upgraded toolchain on it and tell Apple I used that to develop.

    Honestly, this is nothing to really worry about.

    Thank you for clearing that up SkylarEC, I now feel so much more relieved that you'll keep developing for jailbroken devices
