Even though jailbreaking and unlocking has been 100% legal for over a week now , InformationWeek notes that Apple didn’t change their iPhone EULA. “Apple strongly cautions against installing any software that hacks the OS,” Apple says in a bulletin on its support forum.”
“It is also important to note that unauthorized modification of the iOS is a violation of the Phone end-user license agreement and because of this, Apple may deny service for an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that has installed any unauthorized software,” the note states.
The note was published last month, prior to the Library of Congress’ ruling that jailbreaking is not a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and is therefore legal. But the fact that the warning remains on Apple’s support site indicates the company does not believe the ruling supercedes the terms of the iPhone EULA.
So, bottom line… avoid ANY future iOS updates. DO NOT update until the community confirms 100% it’s safe to do so…
