No, I don't think so. But, just a warning, since Apple owns the software, they can still sue each and every person who Jailbroke for around $2,000 per Jailbreak... that means for every time you Jailbroke any one device, they can sue you, and they can sue you for more than one device. But they've never done it, and I don't think they will do it.

Yeah. There isn't anything illegal about jailbreaking (unless you use it to download "cracked" applications. Steve Jobs just wants people to think it is because usually an app that is not accepted into the AppStore will find its way into the jailbreak community via Cydia or Icy. Really it's all about Steve Jobs just wanting people to be afraid to do it.

Jailbreaking your phone is 100% legal in Canada. But be careful, it does void your warranty and there is a chip on the inside of the iPhone 4 that they can tell if it has been done. Even though it is "reversable", it can still be detected by Apple. If you paid for your phone outright or even on contract, be careful because $700 is a lot to lose if something were to happen to it on one drunk night (been there). Rogers and Bell will make you pay $400 to cancel your contract plus the additional $300 you had to pay to get your phone. Your out $700 no matter what you look at it.

I think its legal in us and canada because its free apps and most of the apps are just free online games!!! But theres a bad thing,it breaks your warranty!so if your warranty is already expird,then do it.

Who cares? Canadians can't enforce their own drug/gun laws, let alone policing anyone who wants to take control of a device that they OWN. Just do it. Fuck the DMCA and Fuck anybody who tells you otherwise.
