Your opinion on jailbreaking/homebrew?
« on: April 13, 2017, 05:18:47 pm »
I know a lot of people feel personally hostile towards illegally adding new software to easily hackable devices like tablets and Nintendo devices (including myself) but what about you guys?

I'm not a mod of this thread, but I just wanna post a reminder not to endorse any illegal activities. I think this is okay to leave unlocked for now, because discussion can be taken a variety of directions, but no one can really express and opinion in favor of illegal methods, since it would be, well, illegal  :fox-:P:


Thanks!

EDIT: Thread has been locked

EDITx2: Unlocked again since those technically just void warranties, but just don't mention anything against the rules, like before. My bad, friends!

Specifically, please avoid talking about using jailbreak/rooting/homebrew to pirate apps and other things that ARE illegal.

jailbreaking itself just voids warranties
you can get illegal software and stuff i know but i havent done that

the only thing i have done is on the nintendo 3ds tried to connect it to flipnote 3d server which didnt work then my sd card went weird i bought a new one, but it did use a homebrew application

I personally like Homebrew/jailbreaking/rooting, I usually root every Android phone I have and get some custom android roms (if supported) so I can overclock my phones GPU and CPU or i get custom roms to increase the lifespan of my device so I can sell it/donate so people can get as much use as I did. If I end up getting another 3DS I think I might try homebrew on that though since my last 3DS broke.

If I were to use an iPhone I'd have to jailbreak as I hate how locked down that OS is. I wouldn't do much but make it customizable like my Moto Z Force.

Despite popular opinion, on most devices this is not illegal. In fact I'm sort of for it, but not for using it illegally. I had to root my android for my computer programming.
