So Why do People Jailbreak / Upgrade / Install Add-Ons Anyway?

windows7news.com: Microsoft have this week formally approved a tool that can set things right if you jailbreak your shiny new Windows Phone and then find that the process has broken the updater, so you can’t get the latest updates and patches from Microsoft. It’s a smart move and one that is surely going to win the company fans among the jailbreaking community.

Jailbreaking isn’t confined to Windows Phone though. It’s always been going on with the iPhone, the Playstation 3 and just about every locked down operating system on any device on the planet.

Because people like doing things with their devices that aren't officially supported by the manufacturers.

Hey, just keepin it real.

"Because people like doing things with their devices that aren't officially supported by the manufacturers."
So true, I'm loving the transparent themes for the WP7. I'm also waiting for the right unofficial(hack/mod) Honeycomb update, so i can update my Galaxy Tab.

The more some people are told not to do something the more they want to...

...its human nature i guess.

xtremexx1902d ago

Some stuff is quite cool (mainly the jail broken stuff). I personally do not do it but I can see the appeal

Because greedy companies lock their devices so that you will have to either pay for what they "allow" or do without it. And im not just talking about Sony... almost all companies are guilty of this.

Now watch me get disagrees.

iamnsuperman1902d ago

Some stuff seams really neat and surprising that they do not release it. I am mainly talking about the Iphone/Ipad. There was a way to wireless sync stuff to Itunes ( http://www.tuaw.com/2010/05... You would think Apple would introduce this but so far hasn't

OR you could buy the product that gives you more of what you want. What greedy company is forcing you to buy their product? They aren't. This is easily the worst argument ever.

If you want a massively feature packed system, buy a PC.

Consoles are made to be limited and every single person in the world knows this. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are offering us things we never thought we could have at the same price of a PSOne or N64 when they first launched. So don't even give me "greedy companies". That's absolute BS.

Like my post below, the only greedy people are those who crack the systems, or products without any consideration of those who buy the product for what it is. Because all they care about is their personal gain.

I'll disagree with a damn good reason. As your views are messed up and people like you are going to be this worlds downfall.

Damn right I crack my product and dont care about other people who buy it. Why should I? If I crack my iphone why should I care if you do or dont? People are salivating over the Transparent wallpapers on WP7. Some people are looking into hacking Ipad/iphone to be able to allow this. Are they big bad criminals?

you cant lump all people into the same category. Thats like saying all blacks are thugs. All whites are red-knecks. All people who crack/hack dont have criminal intentions.

What has overclocking done for the pc industry? Intel/AMD embraced it.

That's a bit dramatic, Tron.

Many people modify what they own to fit their needs better. From the guy upgrading his brake pads to the programmer creating custom software for a team of designers... the world hasn't crumbled yet.

gamingdroid1902d ago

I suppose you are one of those people that only do "what these companies want you to do".

I'm for freedom to use my property in a manner I see fit, and not to be told otherwise under the guise of "all hackers are evil".

Ignorance is a bliss! EOL....
