Jailbreaking made legal in the US
"Owners of iPhones and other smartphones are one step closer towards taking complete control of their gadgets, thanks to a new government ruling Monday on the practice of "jailbreaking."
This weekend has seen a flurry of activity about digital rights, but the biggest news dropped Monday morning, when the FCC announced that it had made the controversial practice of “jailbreaking” your iPhone — or any other cell phone — legal."

This doesn't mean that Apple has to make it easy to jailbreak. Just that they can't take legal action if you choose to do so.

This ain't true.
Saying it doesn't violate copyright doesn't mean it's legal, when you get your phone, you sign a contract, copyright is not the only thing protecting companies, plenty of laws are behind each phone and when you get the phone (from a carrier, or from an authorized store) you are suppose to respect them, sure this is a step towards the right direction, but it doesn't mean jailbreaking and flashing and all that stuff, is now legal....

Contracts can't override a law. Jailbreaking is perfectly legal, it just doesnt have to be supported by carriers/providersYou see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

Apples attitude towards jailbreaking is a bunch of BS, hence why I chose android
