If you’ve been living under a rock, the US Federal Appeals Court recently ruled that jailbreaking an electronic device (opening it to “outside” software) was legal, however your warranty through Apple will be void. Following up on this, a website was created that could jailbreak your phone by just visiting the website and following the dialog.
Following up on this, someone decided it would be great to go into the Apple lair <sarcasm> where Apple products descend from the heavens and are placed in mere mortal hands to free a phone. </sarcasm>
I can’t imagine how Apple is going to block access to this website on all of the store phones without just reving the firmware to block the jailbreaking exploit.
