Its funny how companies put sooo much money in to protecting their products and before or soon after some is released, it gets hacked. They cannot win so why do they bother.

first, i am assuming you are referring to Apple since this is an iOS thread.


Apple should just give up because people found and took advantage of a hole in the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch?


Apple is a publicity traded company worth billions of dollars, there's a clear and obvious reason they continue to patch the software, not to mention the number of people that would out of work if they were no longer writing and fixing the software

Meh... untethered or die! Seriously i'll stay on 4.0.1, unlock is to vital for me to lose it everytime the device reboots itself.
