    Apple seems to have recently published a knowledge base article that strongly cautions users against jailbreaking their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. In the knowledge base article, Apple warns users that such ‘unauthorized modification of iPhone OS has been a major source of instability, disruption of services, and other issues’....

      In 6 month, i didn't have any troubles. I save a lot of money, something that apple don't want!

      while all this maybe true, i'll rather take the chance than to use their monotonous OS.. it becomes boring after a while..jailbreaking rocks!!

      If apple gave me the generally minor features I want, then there's a fair chance I wouldn't go down the jailbreak route personally. But they won't, so I feel the need to use a jailbroken iPhone for these reasons and to get the max from my phone for my use and enjoyment.
      Regardless of their warnings I might add.

      My Phone is truly a smart phone thanks to Jailbreaking. My Phone does tons more than the Brand New 4G can do and more!!!! Yeah, I have a hiccup or two but nothing a quick Google to find the solution can't handle. Thanks GeoHot!

      What jailbreak?There is no jailbreak for us who bought a 3gs on 3.1.3.

      I've jailbroken both of my iPhones (2G and 3GS) many times and have now stopped because I've noticed frequent stability issues, some of which were so bad that the phone would randomly become bricked and require a restore. I'm not the only one either, several of my friends have had the same problems.

      Jailbreak improved quality of my iphone in all regards. My brother's is not jailbroken and he has more problems with his. Plus he spends more money and his iphone is boring. Jailbreak all the way!!!!

      Well there's a jailbreak for me on my 3Gs :)
      I'm rolled back on 3.1.2 from 3.1.3 :)

      jailbreak ftw

      as long as you know what you are doing, your phone will run just fine. It is true that about a year ago some of the jailbroken software was a bit unstable.. but over the last year things have gotten much better and I am very glad I am jail broken, I am the official friend in my circle who jailbreaks everyones phones for them

      These are phantom threats with no basis in frequent or provable reality, and yet another attempt by Apple at whining over what people choose to do with the hardware they paid good money for. Get with the program Apple and people won't need to jailbreak. 4.0 still won't be able to replicate "QuickReply" which in and of itself makes not upgrading worth it.

      Yeah, right, LoneWaffle. You must work for apple.

      I mean.. pop up blocker, and i-protect - two simple jb apps that apple should integrate by default, they make ppl want to jailbreak by neglecting basic needs of their users.

      When they talk about updated software, do you they mean iphone os 4.o? The only problem I have noted is my battery drained a quarter faster. Even though I had a few problems I will jailbreak every iphone I ever own. Only then is the true potential of the iphone realized.

      I have no problems with anything Apple has said, I get all push notifications, good reception (better then my friends where they get at least 10 missed calls a day and the iphone is right next to them).
      The battery on the 3GS drains quickly anyway as another friend has non Jailbroken iPhone 3GS and he's always complaining about the battery.

      Apple are talking crap.

      B.S.!

      I've had mine Jailbroken now for 1.5 years and not one problem... ohhh wait yes reduced battery life because I use the thing so freaking much!!! I know at least 10 people who have jailbroken their and not had any problems.

      What sort of benefits do you get working for Apple?

      Wow I can't imagine having an Un-Jailbroken Iphone because when apple and at&t slowly spoon feed these so called features they need to do their due diligence on in order to assure quality control and performance, our Jailbroken iphones are working fine and I bet if you took a poll everyone and their mother! yes their mother! would rather be jailbroken and take their chances versus an expensive motorola razor by apple! Ok maybe I was harsh with the razor but you get the drift! Ten thumbs up for Jailbreaks! it's called testing! and we all use at our own risk! just show your Lockscreen (lockinfo) to a non jailbroken Iphone user and they will feel like they are being robbed! and if you show them anything else forget it they will feel like jerks!

      Did you JB your 3G with 3.1.3 and baseband 05.12.01?
      If so I beg of you to let me know how you did it....... Much obliged

      I read this article... and the message I understood was that Apple is afraid... very afraid... and they are trying to now make us afraid to resist them.

      Major fail again Apple... it's disappointing to hear that your warnings to us on why we shouldn't jailbreak are really nothing more than fear tactics based on generalizations that really probably apply more to your hardware than anything else. You remind me of Big Government, trying to scare the people into trusting that they should trust in it, instead of their own individualism and free choice.

      Booooo!

      Can't wait for the jailbreak!!!

      Are you related to Apple? Give me a break.

      Nice try Apple!! I've been so happy with my jailbroken iPhone. I use backgrounder, inSpell (Spell Checking), SSH daemon, ABSOLUTELY LOVE how SBSettings can force my 3G connection on a weak signal and keeps me off Edge when I'm trying to tether through MyWi and download large files on my laptop in a pinch! Love My3G for watching Youtube videos in higher quality on 3G.

      I will say my Visual Voice Mail doesn't work but that's because I was editing property lists through SSH before MMS came to iPhone trying to get MMS working. I succeeded but also screwed up my visual voice mail.

      All software available on Cydia, Rock App or Icy are signed. The software for the most part is good stuff! Whatever, Apple!!
