    i think it would make sense for appel to get rid of DFU mode or put some kind of protection on it like you have to enter some long code or plug in a dogel. because without DFU mode we couldn't jailbreak. just wondering if thay might do this??

    Probably not, because DFU is like a 'last resort' type thing. Apple even uses it.

    Why would Apple only have access to it. That way they will have 5x more people coming in for help, instead of just the norm. I disagree with Apple getting rid of it, unless they have a better alternative, which I don't see right now.

    ok cool thanks for the quick repliys and even if appel got rid of DFU mode a bet the dev team would find another way to jailbreak.

    No, because it's in the Boot ROM.
    See: Read-Only Memory. Not even Apple can edit it.

    that makes no sense, because thats a last resort for a lot of people to restore their ipods even if they aren't jailbroken

    your original post kinda contradicts itself, you go on about it making sense to remove it then go on about how we need it to do the whole jailbreak process
