    Why do you jailbreak (or not)?

    I'm currently not liking jailbreaking because it's been giving me very long load times and my iPod is very unstable. I'm using the Offical QuickPWN and I've done it several times and I get the same results. I do like the fact that you can theme.

    Because without it, you're truly not using your device to it's fullest capabilites.

    I used to jailbreak all of the time.... Now I really don't see a need too.

    My iPod was pretty stable when it came to running apps, loading times for things were just a little bogged down, defiantly not enough to complain about.

    With 2.1's features, including the App Store, the need to jailbreak was pretty much eradicated. Developers of cool applications and homebrew for the iPod eventually moved onto the App Store for either more downloads, or for money, which is completely understandable. There are some great games and applications on the App Store.

    I also realize there will always be Jailbreak-exclusive applications and games, such as emulators and different system-altering tweaks, but I don't think it's worth restoring 2.1 on another 3 times to get everything working properly. Don't get me wrong, those are awesome applications, and I applaud the creators of those packages.

    The only reason I still see why people jailbreak:

    Extra Apps
    Themes
    Cracked Apps

    I'm fine with the original theme of the iPod. While I would personally rather have a better-looking theme, I have noticed a slight slow down, which draws me away from the whole theme idea, unless it is something as simple as a background.

    I really don't see a need for cracked applications... I assume many people here bought their own iPod/iPhone, which leads me to think that people are just too lazy/greedy to actually buy a good application that a smart developer deserves. Yeah, I agree that some may be a bit on the expensive side, but that's how it is-- Just because you are able to pirate it doesn't mean you should, unless you were completely desperate and were cutting body parts off for money, of course

    Right, that is the only reason one needs to Jailbreak.
    Here is an equation for you boring people = Non Jailbreak.
    Cool/Awesome/ Been here since the beginning = Jailbreak.

    Simple, No???
