You've misinterpreted my point.

I didn't say there's no need for jailbreaking; I said it's overrated. Big difference. Obviously I think there are times when one can benefit from jailbreaking, otherwise I wouldn't have done it myself! My old iPhone 2G increased in its value to me once I installed an "unofficial" app to activate the A2DP profile so I could use stereo Bluetooth, just as an example.

I've got nothing against jailbreaking at all. It's just that people have several misperceptions about it and most people really don't have any actual need to do it. Those that do, go right ahead.

Let me put this another way that may make my position clearer: I don't have anything against modding your computer -- but I think its dumb to do it while it's under warranty.

Likewise, jailbreaking is something best done (IMO) to give new life to old equipment -- because re-jailbreaking and re-installing stuff every time Apple updates the firmware is a PITA.
