iOS is brilliant as it is. There is no need to do it.

Even if I had an iPhone/iPod touch I wouldn't jailbreak it. I'd be quite happy with iOS. I've heard jailbreaking just makes the device lag.

The act of jailbreaking itself may be legal, but what most people do with their jailbroken device is illegal. Most forms of jailbreaking are mainly just for free apps and other media. That is illegal.

Let's say that you are a developer, and you make a popular app. How would you feel if someone bought it, and through that single purchase, thousands of people are going to download it for free. You are going to be losing a whole lot of money.

So please be courteous and not participate in that illegal activity through "legal" means.

With the current state of IOS I have no need to jailbreak, it is stable and works and I rather not risk any possible issues by jailbreaking.

I think jailbreaking is something every user should look at. I took a look at some of the neet things as well as how unstable the device becomes. Jailbreaking is awesome for some and terrible and scary for others. I am in between those. I prefer a non-jailbroken device. However I don't have anything against jailbreaking.

Im with Chris on this one, i'd rather have a solid device with the least amount of security breach as possible. It just feels better using the phone how it was designed to be used and makes things easier when something goes wrong.
