  1. Hi Cheese, no probs with the spelling, just thought you were a Harry Potter fan ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”tongue wink” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Here’s a free suggestion, if you aren’t sure what a particular software does after pwnage, don’t install it. I’d highly recommend not to install any 3rd party app during the unlocking/jailbreaking process with the pwnageTool. You don’t want an app, even if it’s the greatest ssh in colour, running in the background that may gain a lot of access and keep a monitor on you, while there is no more Apple watching over your back for you.

    Free advice, but the fries are extra.

  3. It is a bit too risky isn’t it? Personally, the only thing that would tempt me into doing a bit of jailbreaking would be if someone created an app that would download bittorrent files onto the iPhone ready to be transferred to the Mac. Imagine the savings on your power bill if it was only the iPhone running and downloading for a few hours rather than your full Mac setup. Nice.

    Talk about a great way to exhaust that iPhone battery that only Apple can replace.

  5. They are a bunch of hackers who have no known (or plausibe) connection with Apple since they are circumventing protection mechanisms put in place by Apple, enabling hackable software access and even independence from the official approved networks.
