Poll: Do you jailbreak your iPhone?

7 December 2008

TechRadar ran a blog listing ten reasons to jailbreak your iPhone on Friday drawing some ire as well affirmation. We'd have to say about nine of the reasons are weak but being able to use the iPhone as a tethered modem is essential (it's shameful Apple banned NetShare from the app store).

So here's a quick poll for Bitterwallet readers. Considering the app store has stolen a lot of thunder from Cydia/Installer and the inability to soft unlock 3G, do you still jailbreak your iPhone?

    I used to jailbreak my Touch until the Apps Store launched. Now there's no point whatsoever. I can fill it with crap from the Apps Store and pay, too. It's like I'm blessed, or something.

    If I had an iPhone, (I haven't because I'm not in 'sales' and don't own an Audi/BMW) and I knew what the feck jailbreaking my iPhone was, then I perhaps would. Now lets look at Q4 matrix figures and 'touch-base' over G&T's with an iPhone conference call hey chaps? (losers)

    I'm 23, I don't own a car and I'm not in sales. I do know what jailbreaking is, and I own an iPhone. It is not jailbroken, no real necessity to do so.

    My ipod 1G is my primary iPod, Personal digital assistant and alot more, and has happen to be day that I recieved it. It still function the recent iPod system software, and also any application I need it to run. I'm using it to post this remark at the moment. I would point out you'll find it a lot more compared to simply an "excellent hobbyist system" -- you'll find it an excellent iPod
