Excellent job, I think this is an important topic that can be well addressed on this wiki. Copy protection contains controversial subject matter; the way I see it, as long as the information here remains academic, this is very much in the spirit of theiphonewiki. --geohot 03:49, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

O_o Just opened this page accidentally (don't own an iPhone), and was very sad about that its author writes about protecting DRM and, probably, doesn't think that soft must be free and that copyright is bad and DRM of course is bad too. Apple fans such Apple fans. But the page is of some interest, yeah. --VitaliyFilippov 21:58, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

It's not a case of being an Apple fanboy. Fact is, there's no valid reason to circumvent the DRM on iOS apps. (The only reason I can think of would be for piracy, which we're opposed to.) The App Store DRM is very flexible; you can install apps that you've purchased on every device you own. --Dialexio 23:12, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

One reason I can think of is to un-DRM free (and always free) apps built for 3.1.x. So that way far into the future (or a year, at technology's pace...) you will be able to pick from and run a ton of the apps built for the original iPhone. Probably not legally OK, but no financial loss so legal arguments are null. Kind of. --Iemit737 02:22, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
