    Why censor the title?

    I'm sure something new will come after a jailbreak is released.

    It's done automatically. It's not censored on the front page.

    There is already a Chinese site that allows you to install pirated apps on a non jailbroken device, so jailbreaking doesn't cause piracy.

    People will still find a way to get paid apps for free. But this is surely a big knock down to a lot of those people.

    Hopefully now I'll stop seeing jailbreak ads on Craigslist saying "get any app for free (even paid one)". Definitely won't miss that.

    Good. My friends were playing with my old fourth gen iPod touch and they were all like "DURR HURR DURR HURR YOU'RE A PIRATE YOU JAILBROKE IT" [PIRACY]us (to uneducated people) is the only reason to jailbreak their iDevices. Honestly, I've tried the [PIRACY]us route and I can say that it is worth it paying for the app; because you can 1) download it as many times as you want afterwards and 2) you're giving the developer a reason to keep writing apps and improve on the one you bought (unless its a Gameloft game; I've never seen any major updates to old games like MC3 or MC2 or Asphalt 6)
