    This is great, it gives us a fair chance to learn more about our products and get more people involved in developing. This is definatly a great chance to keep all the great jailbreaking and mods going without legal worries, Great Job EFF and thanks.

    So those that modified their XBox 360 to expand their hard drive are allowed to have their XBox Live Accounts turned back on?
    MS didn't claim it was illegal, they are simply refusing a service that they offer to non modified devices, they are allowed to do this. Similar to apple refusing warranty when you jailbreak or requiring certain apps have newer firmware.

    IM not a troll. IM just sick of people asking "when is the jailbreak coming"! If you visit ModMyi often, you will know when its released!
    I've been a member for over 2years. I didn't ask when is it coming...I said release it. U are a troll. If ur tired of people asking than log off ur computer...

    I wish they would prevent Apple from trying to prevent jailbreak. Now that would be a big story!

    Are you expanding your hard drive to investigate security flaws? I don't think you'll get that one.

    So, does this mean Apple can no longer brick the phones if folks try to update the OS or apps through iTunes with the jailbreak applied? Can Apple be held liable for 'breaking' a phone that is jailbroken? (puns intended) t

    Why wouldn't you just restore the jailbroken device before sending it back to apple for warranty. Have done this 3 times and my sister has once. It's no big deal they don't have time to check each phone they send you the new one and it's in your hands 3 days later simple. Screw voiding the warranty blah blah everyone is so scared?
    So my wife had some problems with the original 2G iPhone and sent it back in as is. If your devices freezes on you, be sure to reset the phone by holding in both the home and power buttons before you decide to give your hopes up, and if all else fails hold them down until the phone reboots and let go of only the power button, it will go into DFU mode and will allow you to restore your phone. I only say this because I want to make sure that all people relatively new to jailbreaking are aware and don't have to throw away a couple hundred bucks.

    I would like to know more about how this applies to the JB iPad. I understand about the iPhone and other cell phones now being legal to BREAK. The iPad is not a cell phone! For that matter neither is the iPod touch. This ruling sounds like iPhones and cell phones are the only LEGAL exemption. iPad and iTouch are still in the gray area. Probably another 3 years of litigation before we find out that ruling. Great news regardless! Thanks Library of Congress for giving Apple the big Fa-Q!

    so if we jailbreak the phone and if there's something wrong with the phone,will its still cover with the warranty
    I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
    This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

    Hmm, Still voids the Warranty. For 3 years now I have been breaking the Law? Damm, this takes all the fun out of it if its legal now

    Like it really makes a difference if it was illegal. Don't ever remember hearing anyone getting arrested for jailbreaking a iphone.

    Wish I was, it would look great on my resume and background checks

    Oh well, still, its a feather in the hat for the Jailbreaking community !!!

    Hurray to the JB community!!!
    This should serve as a heads-up to Apple that their closed garden approach/ stance fools no one and harms rather than helps their business model...especially as a great number of "approved" apps are totally useless!!

    The jailbreak community lives on

    All I really hope is that this pushes Google to release their apps for the jailbroken community...

    I want Google Latitude and Google Voice!!!! Since they don't have to be Apple approved for legal use anymore, it seems like a fantastically awesome opportunity!!!

    So when does this law actually go into effect? I want to call AT&T and let them know that I am unlocking my phone unless they will do it for me. I wonder what they will say? Lol

    I hope you get a warning for saying that you were first!
    I think warning should go out to stupid people who think its funny to say "Release the Jailbreak" How was that funny? I am willing to bet no one else will "LOL" your stupid comment!
    LOL. So I'm assuming your two posts were much better than the other two you claim to be stupid huh? And I'm sure your going to lead with the "me having one post mess" but I am formerly known as SiLeNtKiLLa with tripple your posts. But anyhow, this is the best news I've heard all year. Now if only we can get a CDMA version of the iPhone, I'll be good.

    I suppose this federal law applies to the U.S. only iPhone owners.
