Most of those interested in jailbreaking have migrated to Android.

The issue isn't why, it's how! Jailbreaking feature are worth 6 or 7 figures - so why share when the result is worthless? I'd rather get paid!

Can you translate that to a language other than gibberish?

I jailbroke my iPhone 3G so I could do tethering. Then we got it officially, and I stopped.

It's the same issue with Hackintoshes. They work fine, but they're just too much of a hassle. It's easier to go Android or Wintel box and put Linux on it if you need that flexibility. I've got better things to do.

>I can’t see why anyone would want to jailbreak an iOS device today, other than a spare device for goofing around on. The security implications are severe and the advantages negligible.

Spoken like a true cuck with no balls and even less brain.

In 2007 when the iPod touch and iPhone did nothing outside of web apps, it was necessary even to read books offline. I jumped on jailbreaking as soon as possible.

I was also younger and more interested in trying hardware mods, etcetera. The phone works pretty well today, and while I realise there are some cool things made possible through jailbreaking, but I'm no longer bothered. I expect that loads out there think the same.

sincere question: what does 'cuck' even mean in this context?

The rest of us discovered girls.

Average Citizen:
Can't Gruber make an exception and use a lower-case "i" in the title of this piece for "iOS"? It looks so weird capitalized.

I agree with anon, I'd rather get laid.

Hey, I spent the 90s endlessly fiddling with Linux (configuring/personalizing, recompiling the kernel). Hundreds of hours. In 1997, I bought a PowerBook G3 (Pismo) and promptly installed Linux on it. Same story, incessant tweaking. Then, in 2000, I discovered OS X. And I could finally get some WORK done. Never looked back.

Yes, if you're a male.

What I think he means is that holding the secret to jailbreaking iOS means you can charge the FBI and other agencies access to iOS devices that they want into.

Gruber the Booger:
Using the word "cuck" certainly gets a rise out of some of you cucks.

I had no idea that you were such delicate snowflake pieces of shit.

What do you want, an apology?
1:11 am — Tuesday, 28 November 2017
chad:
The problem with the word cuck is that it's meaningless. An insult for people too lazy to actually come up with something original.
2:09 am — Tuesday, 28 November 2017
Gruber the Booger:
So meaningless that you felt the need to respond?

Why don't YOU come up with some original chad?

How about you, chad, are a worthless piece of dog shit that I would not give the time to wipe off the soul of my shoe.

I'd prefer to just throw chad shit shoe away and buy a new pair.

Creative enough? Original enough for your oh so discriminating taste?

Or maybe you are the high falutin type with no sense of humor.

Fuck off.

I wonder what side project Gruber is working on. He doesn't really write anymore.

Big talk coming from "Gruber the Booger". Been saving that one since your playground days?

@Ming Chi Kuo's posts slay me.

Also, calm down Booger. We know you love Trump, and he's made you think it's okay to treat people who disagree with you like sub-human garbage. But that toxicity is going to eat away your soul. We're all just people, you know, with hearts and thoughts and feelings...

@anonymous

Probably the iPhone X review. Considering it's been a month and his writing output has dropped to near-zero in the meantime, it'd better be some Ars Technica level shit.

>We know you love Trump

Citation please.

So am I to assume you love Hillary or Bernie?

You know nothing about me. Your assumptions are founded on what?

That I am an asshole? OK fine. I am an asshole. That makes me a Trump Supporter?

Fuck off. You know nothing about me.

I would say we know nothing about each other because both of us know nothing about the other.

Fuck your feelings.

Your thoughts however matter.

Think more, feel and assume less.
