Ko sem pisal prva navodila za odklep in aktivacijo OOT Apple iPhone – Firmware 1.1.2, me je v komentarjih Imamac spomnil, da je v iPhone-ovem Software License Agreement-u zapisano: “You own the media on which the iPhone Software is recorded but Apple and/or Apple’s licensor(s) retain ownership of the iPhone Software itself.” …. “you may not copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, decrypt, modify, or create derivative works of the iPhone Software”.

Kasneje sem objavil še novejša navodila za Jailbreak iPhona in iPada in vedno se je našel nekdo, ki je trdil, da tega ne bi smel početi!

  • Apple iPad Jailbreak – Spirit
  • Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.2 – PwnageTool 3.1.4
  • Pred mesecem dni pa sem dobil “dokaz”, spremenjen Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), da to lahko počnem mirne duše – torej tudi objavljam navodila kako se to počne:

    Owners of the iPhone will be able to legally unlock their devices so they can run software applications that haven’t been approved by Apple Inc., according to new government rules announced Monday (vir CNN)

    The U.S. government has said that iPhone owners are officially allowed to “jailbreak” their devices for “educational purposes.” The new rule was one of a number of exemptions to 1998’s Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) anti-circumvention protections. These exemptions are reviewed and authorized every three years to ensure that work protected by copyright can be used in non-infringing ways. (vir Mashable)


    In kaj to spremeni? Praktično vse. Sedaj je namreč dovoljeno slednje (vir Library of Congress):

  • Motion pictures on DVDs that are lawfully made and acquired and that are protected by the Content Scrambling System when circumvention is accomplished solely in order to accomplish the incorporation of short portions of motion pictures into new works for the purpose of criticism or comment, and where the person engaging in circumvention believes and has reasonable grounds for believing that circumvention is necessary to fulfill the purpose of the use in the following instances:
    1. Educational uses by college and university professors and by college and university film and media studies students;
    2. Documentary filmmaking;
    3. Noncommercial videos
  • Computer programs that enable wireless telephone handsets to execute software applications, where circumvention is accomplished for the sole purpose of enabling interoperability of such applications, when they have been lawfully obtained, with computer programs on the telephone handset.
  • Computer programs, in the form of firmware or software, that enable used wireless telephone handsets to connect to a wireless telecommunications network, when circumvention is initiated by the owner of the copy of the computer program solely in order to connect to a wireless telecommunications network and access to the network is authorized by the operator of the network.
  • Video games accessible on personal computers and protected by technological protection measures that control access to lawfully obtained works, when circumvention is accomplished solely for the purpose of good faith testing for, investigating, or correcting security flaws or vulnerabilities, if:
    1. The information derived from the security testing is used primarily to promote the security of the owner or operator of a computer, computer system, or computer network; and
    2. The information derived from the security testing is used or maintained in a manner that does not facilitate copyright infringement or a violation of applicable law.
  • Computer programs protected by dongles that prevent access due to malfunction or damage and which are obsolete. A dongle shall be considered obsolete if it is no longer manufactured or if a replacement or repair is no longer reasonably available in the commercial marketplace; and
  • Literary works distributed in ebook format when all existing ebook editions of the work (including digital text editions made available by authorized entities) contain access controls that prevent the enabling either of the book’s read-aloud function or of screen readers that render the text into a specialized format.
  • In voila. Upgrejdal iPhona na 4.01 in ga jailbrejkal preko spletne strani http://www.jailbreakme.com. Deluje!

      Sorry, ampak kakšno vezo ima za TEBE kar sprejmejo ameriški zakonodajalci?

      Ameriška zakonodaja ne omejuje TVOJEGA dogovora z Applom. Apple še vedno lahko s TABO sklene pogodbo, ki bo v nasprotju z ameriško zakonodajo. Res takšne pogodbe ne bo mogel uveljavljati na ameriškem sodišču, lahko jo bo pa na naših sodiščih.

      Skratka precej mimo se mi zdi da omenjaš da je nekaj LEGALNO, da sedaj nekaj počneš LEGALNO ipd…. če se nahajaš v Sloveniji, zadevo so pa legalizirali v ZDA.

      PS: Sanja se mi ne kaj slovenska zakonodaja določa na tem področju.

      v 12. tocki eula za iphone je zapisano – this license will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California….

      torej veljajo njihova pravila.. in zato se veselim le tega :)

    3. (jm) says:

      :-)))

      Bi bilo zabavno, če bi te na slovenskem sodišču obtožili po Kalifornijskem zakonu.

      Seveda pa bi te lahko med obiskom v ZDA.

    4. McFly says:

      Si prepričan da lahko Apple določa čigava pravila se izvajajo v kateri državi in da se upoštevajo tuja sodišča?

      Kaj če bi na Prešercu prodajal zavitke trave in zraven dal vsakemu za podpisat da se prodaja regulira po zakonih Nizozemske?

    5. had says:

      @mcfly, jm: v bistvu sta odprla zanimivo debato :)

      glede na to, da se iphone ne prodaja v sloveniji, torej sploh ne more biti ukrepov :)

      bom pa za tole rec povprasal malce naokoli.. ker me resnicno zanima kako se to resuje..

      p.s.: sem bil preprican, da se je s tem kaj spremenilo tudi za nas :( ocitno sem salabajzer :)

    6. McFly says:

      Recimo v Ameriki v zakonih lahko 100x prepovejo kopiranje in download avtorsko zaščitene lastnine, pri nas je kršitev samo če je posledica kršenja “omembe vredna” finančno pridobitev, če te ni ali ni dokazljiva ti lahko samo težijo, obtožiti te pa ne morejo. Sklicevanje na zakone ZDA ne pomaga.

    7. (jm) says:

      Vprašanje je, ali lahko v “dogovor med tabo in Applom” Apple vključi tudi sklicevanje na njihov zakon, pa ne v smislu zakona, ampak besedila zakona (tako kot turistične agencije ali zavarovalnice vključujejo splošne pogoje). S tem si ti prostovoljno sprejel kar si pač sprejel, in je sedaj vprašanje, ali bi tudi slovensko sodišče po slovenskih zakonih te lahko kaznovalo zaradi nespoštovanja sprejetega dogovora – pogodbe.

      Ker ne verjamem, da slovesnak zakonodaja na tem področju sploh karkoli ddoloča, torej takšen dogovor ni v nasprotju s slovensko zakonodajo (kar bi naredilo dogovor ničen).

      Vprašljivo je recimo tudi vprašanje garancije. Recimo ko so na računalnike lepili nalepke, da ni garancije, če je nalepka strgana, sem se na to požvižgal. Garancije na disk ne more strgana nalepka na računaniku izničiti, pa naj 100x piše gor kar hoče.

    8. Žiga says:

      tako in tako ne boš mogel kupit iphona če se ne boš strinjal z njihovimi pogoji. sicer pa v pravu vedno veljajo lokalni zakoni proizvajalca torej ameriški zakoni. in če te bodo tožil za karkoli pač že bodo tožbo vložili tam. zagotovo ne tukaj na nekem lokalnem sodišču kjer ne znajo uredit niti družinskih zadev. sicer te pa nikol ne bodo tožil razn če začneš njihove software razpečevat, prodajat al jim kako drugač finančno škodit. kaj ti privat počneš nikogar ne briga. edin glede garancij.

      DMCA velja v ZDA, pri nas nima pravne veljave in v slovenskem pravnem redu vse te EULA in podobne klobase, ki vam jih vsiljujejo lopovi tipa Apple in Microsoft so v SLoveniji nične.

      Ne glede na ameriški DMCA, jailbreakajte kolikor vam srce poželi.
