Now NBC is reporting that Apple has asked the federal government to help crack down on hackers “jailbreaking” the iPhone.
Jailbreaking is the hacker term for cracking software restrictions so the iPhone will work on other wireless carriers and allow any apps to be installed, not just those approved by Apple.
Apple is fighting the practice.
“Current jailbreak technologies now in widespread use utilize unauthorized modifications to the copyrighted bootloader and operating system, resulting in the infringement of the copyrights in those programs,” Apple told the U.S. Copyright Office.
But if we are not forgetting so this request comes despite the Library of Congress having deemed that jailbreaking your iPhone in order to install applications not approved by Apple and/or to unlock is legal.
Why Apple is playing this Drama with his Millions of iDevice users. If Apple stops Jailbreaking so will it provide with us the features which we can enjoy on Jailbroken iDevices.Like Themes, Tweaks, Wallpapers and e.t.c. So what you people think about it?
