    Finally, Jailbreaks are fair use - its always pissed me off that Apple was such a closed system.

    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?

      No.  It still voids the warranty and if the phone comes with a built in service prover fee, you still have to pay it.

    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.
