I don't jailbreak, but I fail to see why it's a problem for some people that other people do it. I put countless engine parts on my 2008 Daytona and blew the warranty within the first 6 months. I know how to fix cars so it doesn't bother me. I don't expect Dodge to fix it for me either. I also don't expect other Dodge owners to get mad at me for choosing to make my vehicle more than what it was originally. Trite analogy, but it works for me. I like it better with 456hp and no warranty than with 345hp and a warranty.

I find that every time I jailbreak an iPhone it slows it WAY down. Maybe I am doing something wrong but I can't personally handle a slow electronic device it drives me nuts. So in the end I pass on the jailbreaking.

And that's perfectly acceptable. I just have a feeling that a majority of iPhone iOS 4 users won't really feel the need to jailbreak.

And to back that up, there are stats online that state 90%+ of iPhone users have never even heard of jailbreaking and only a fraction of that 10% have actually done it to date.

If they do it, that's their choice, but let's not get upset at those that choose not to.

That is an excellent way to put it. Great analogy!
I don't fault anyone who does jailbreak their phone because they probably have a reason for doing it (usually functionality) and they know the risks they are taking. Even if they just do it out of curiosity. Whatever. It doesn't hurt me.

We will know that hopefully by the end of the summer when the Quaife LSD and the 3.21's arrive. After I can get it all jammed in there, I plan to hit the 1/4 mile track. Currently, she's a Dynojet queen that occasionally likes to embarrass SRT-8's, G8's and GTO's at stoplights.

I will definitely will try the next jailbreak update, not because it has anything special on top of os4, but for simply ONE app, MyWi! Best app ever! I could care less about being able to get hacked apps for free. I like to support all those app developers who helped to make the iphone what it is.
