Anyone who downloads software via an unsolicited e-mail link, deserves what they get.

That said, my phone has been jailbroken for years now, with no issues.

true, if your dumb enough to download from an unsolicited email, you are getting what you deserve.... but there are some idiots out there.... I've met quite a few bmxer's whos web browsing habbits weren't very intelligent.... ya know the types that click on anything that says "click here" or "click me"....

Clearly, not saying people shouldn't be made aware, just saying that just because there is a malware related to jailbreaking doesn't mean jailbreaking is inherently insecure or bad.

Jailbreaking lets you get around Apple's security, and run un-approved apps, and otherwise modify your phone. For example, multitasking, which lets you run multiple apps simultaneously, Apple is only just now talking about releasing soon. I've had multitasking for over a year thanks to jailbreaking. I can use my phone however I want, not just how Apple wants me to. I basically have my phone setup to be a hand held computer, I can even make changes to Pedal's code from my phone.

Nick, do you remember way back on the og pedal, a conversation I had that I got laughed at for.... I remember being laughed at for telling people that phones would soon replace laptop computers..... HA!

you runnin the 3gs iphone nick? my buddy got one and jail broke it, but ever since he did that it runs really really hot.....

not sure if it has anything to do with the jailbreak, but he didn't do it right off the bat, and it wasn't hot before he did that... he had it for a month or 2 before he jail broke it... so I can only assume that the jailbreak is making his run hot....

do you know if the jailbreak does any kind of over clocking?

Nope, still rocking a 3G with a broken screen, haha.

They could be related, but probably not.

By default, all jailbreaking does is allow you to install unauthorized apps. You have to actually then install apps to see any real change. There are certain apps that could cause the processor to be worked harder than normal (for example, I use a program called Backgrounder, which isn't really a program, so much as it lets you run programs in the background (multi-tasking)). As far as I'm aware, there isn't anything that lets you actually overclock the processor, if there is, I'd love to know about it and try it out ;)

wasn't sure if it did any kind of overclocking.... hmmm, maybe the battery on his is just goin....

I know the droid can be overclocked, I have another friend with a droid(although overclocking it seems to just make it run hot, not faster).... thats why I wasn't sure if the jailbreak did something to the cpu....
