Finally, Jailbreaks are fair use - its always pissed me off that Apple was such a closed system.
having to download an app (and pay for a decent one) just to have voice dialing! in iphone 3g.. aargh
I am relieved...I feared to jail break my Iphone as I would lose out on warranty but had to do it as it was turning out to be a useless device without the third party applications.
But SF, does this ruling means that the warranty on jailbreak phone would be valid?
it means.. i can continue to sell jailbroke iphones
i was never worried - but its good to be legit.
and im happy about the principle... i always thought it was ludicrous that the original manufacturer had a legal right to tell me what i could do with my purchase.
i bought my apple products - i didnt lease them. if their product doesnt perform to my needs i should have the right to adapt and change in anyway i like for my personal use.
...squaretrade warranties are far superior to applecare anyway
Exactly my sentiments...Though selling is not much of a problem in India...Infact if you have a jailbroken Apple product with the latest application, it will fetch you more money than what a Apple reseller would give. I had a first generation Ipod touch which I had purchased when Ipod touch was just launched...I purchased the 8GB touch for Rs.17,333 and 3 months back I sold it for Rs.13000. I just upgraded it and installed some nice application and games.
And I wish if square trade warranties were available here. I came to know about it when some purchased it through my amazon link and I am sure it is probably from your post I have on my blog. I have even read your hub on it where you compare apple care v/s Square trade for Ipad.
