So what you're really trying to say is that you are banging the maid and trying not to get caught by your wife? Your conscience eating you up much? And to be honest with you, in this day in age anyone can find out whatever they want about you. Government or not.

Oh Man, we are living in a different world now. A world where hackers are collaborating with the product manufacturer and in return the company giving a public shout out to the hacker.

that's actually kind of scary, to know my phone has these many holes (now public!!!) to be taken advantage of, if I don't upgrade in order to keep my jailbreak.

odedoo1 - March 11, 2014 at 2:48am
there will always be that many holes and what do you think Android is? it's one big hole all together it's an open system so I don't see what the big deal is, it's not like anybody cares.

That's not Ismael Santos. He didn't type in all caps and use periods after every word.
gamerscul9870
gamerscul9870 - March 11, 2014 at 2:59am
Yet he always asks when it's coming out. That's also why I pointed out "hidden" identity, may not be caps and all, but still asking those questions.

A new Jb would be really good for people using older devices, like iPhone4. The performance of iOS 7 on those devices has dropped, it's really sluggish...
iDontKnow
iDontKnow - March 12, 2014 at 1:16pm
They forgot to thank them for JB the device. Owner should have control on their device and not them controling you. Without JB you will lost the flexibility.
Nitro Junkie
Nitro Junkie - March 12, 2014 at 2:22pm
And a jail brake is going to make older devices faster. Lol. Please. If anything jail braking makes performance slower and has a lot of lag. This last iOS update actually made performance on older iPhone 4's a lot faster.
