    Guys, I got email from some developer from the apple store starting with this: "Dear jail broken user..." and I was "what?! how the hell this guy knows that my phone is jail broken?!? Not to mention that the email he wrote me to was the same one I gave to my apple store account.

    isnt cydia open source? whoever is scared or cares can just grab the source on the official site and look at why it calls that site...

    most probably though, it is just a coincidence and something from the appstore push...

    i see what you mean but i tried other apps from the actual store and they dont use those sites except for the app store. mail/stocks/weather/aim/aol radio/ netnewswire dont show the apple.com sites that i logged. and i tried it 4 times and every time it shows that when ever you do something

    But i figured out why so no alarm. Every time cydia installs something it does some kind of respring that doesnt show so of course it restarts and tells push to activate. thats why.

    No False alarm sorry guys
