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!
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):
- Educational uses by college and university professors and by college and university film and media studies students;
- Documentary filmmaking;
- Noncommercial videos
- 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
- 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.
In voila. Upgrejdal iPhona na 4.01 in ga jailbrejkal preko spletne strani http://www.jailbreakme.com. Deluje!
