Question by Cheerbear11: I heard that jailbreaking an iPad is now becoming illegal. What are the legal consequences?
I heard that jailbreaking an iPad is now illegal. What are the legal consequences of jailbreaking one? Can they throw you in jail for it or make you pay a fine? And what if a peron already has a Jailbroken iPad?
Answer by Vern86
No. Why would it be illegal? It will void the Apple warranty, but just like you can take out a stock car engine, and put in a new one, same thing with changing the default settings on the iPad.

This week, azrienoch and SassiBoB are joined by samcaplat to talk about the WP7 Developer Contest, jailbreaking Omnia 7 Mango, the rooted Android 3.2 for Motorola XOOM, and the stable Perma-Temp Root for EVO 3D. Then SassiBoB features Navy Wars by BootsSiR, and we hear about a couple contests for the Big Android BBQ. And finally, azrienoch delivers his second message for HTC regarding their promise to unlock bootloaders for the EVO 3D and Sensation. We hope it stings a little.

Question by : Whats the difference between Jailbreaking an iPhone and Unlocking a iPhone?
What’s the difference I know how to jailbreak but how do you unlock. I really need an iPhone to T-Mobile but what do I need to do it. It needs to be free though.
Answer by kawther
Unlocking is lifting the bar that your service provider has induced on your phone which restrict the use of other providers usim cards.
Jailbreaking is tampering or exploiting the operating firmware of the iPhone in order to crack apple’s mandate on the phones applications and media.
jailbreaking allows having iPhone apps for free and having apps from cydia that AppStore doesn’t have. Majority of jailbreaks make unlocking the iPhone possible
unlocking by exploiting the firmware works as ling as the firmware is running. Restoring the iPhone will need new jailbreaking and then unlocking again.
Unlocking performed via the service provider or via apple is permanent.
There is certain procedure for jailbreaking and unlocking for each iPhone (iPod or ipad) depending on the model, firmware and sometimes even the date of manufacturing.

Jailbreaking, a term that has come to encompass several practices but generally refers to a user obtaining root access on their device, is controversial in a strange way. Companies like Apple and Nintendo hate it, and most users don’t care about it. Yet it’s constantly in the news because it is, in fact, a philosophical conflict.
RIM has posted an official response to the habit of jailbreaking BlackBerry devices, particularly PlayBooks, though the post doesn’t mention the product by name. Probably because it would be hard to argue against users creating functionality for the device that should have existed there in the first place.
It’s really not a bad or hostile post; penned by BlackBerry Security Incident Response Team Director Adrian Stone (his business cards are extra-large), it’s really more of an assurance that RIM is aware of and responding to the fact that root access is being sought and acquired.
As much as users would like to say that a company should be embracing jailbreakers (Microsoft is probably the closest big company to this ideal right now with WP7 and Kinect), it does make sense for a company like RIM, which prides itself on its ostensibly impregnable communications infrastructure, to assure its customers that it’s not going to let a few code monkeys destabilize the whole platform.
Yet considering the painfully incomplete state in which the PlayBook shipped, RIM might do well to consider the early adopters and hackers as their most loyal and dedicated customers. Apple doesn’t have that dubious luxury, so it can take an adversarial stance, but RIM should be patting these guys on the back — if for no other reason than that many of them paid full price for a device that they have since had to offload at bargain-bin prices.
It’s a prickly position they’re in, but embracing hackers could be perceived as the security-savvy thing to do. As it is, they’re essentially acknowledging that they will constantly be playing catch-up, when they could be saying they’re proactively addressing the security concerns, the way Google does with Chrome’s exploit bounty.

Look, we understand, some of you are a little timid about jailbreaking your iPhone. You’ve looked on in envy as your contemporaries have thrown warranties to the wind and enjoyed the convenience of turning on and off their WiFi from the homescreen. But, be jealous no longer. A crafty developer has figured out how to bring the same capabilities your iDevice with little more than a browser bookmark — no jailbreaking required. IconSettings lets you quickly access or toggle various settings on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, provided its running iOS 5. Setting it up is as simple as saving a bookmark to your home screen. Then you just tap the links and, voilà, you can turn on and off Bluetooth, change brightness levels, or disengage autolock. You’ll find full instructions and the appropriate bookmarks at the source links.
