    Well I think apple has to "unlock" the feature in a firmware update before any dev can do anything. It was the same way with bluetooth on the 2g. 4!

    Think how hard that would be.

    Someone correct me, but that would be an entirely different type of programming than what they do now. They look for holes in firmware, or hardware, not creating drivers.

    Which is why they would release the activator for FM radio.

    LULZ HOW TOO BRAIN?

    Cydia devs develop the actual cydia app.
    Apple doesn't go around helping to make apps people on the store make, right?

    No, they develop the platform. What is distributed by the platform is made by other DEVS

    They actually work on Cydia? It hasn't changed much... Still slow. Still mediocre UI.
