    Default Apple's Denial of Service attack?

    Isn't this basically what amounts to a mass denial of service attack if Apple did it on purpose? An individual doing it would go to prison.

    Lol, what makes this constitute a DoS? I don't like this dirty game apple is playing but I it is legal, for the most part Probably not in the confines of AT&T not able to give unlock codes though.

    Denial of service is a premeditated action to deny people (or some organization) of service. Simple as that! If it was an unintended consequence, that's different. Who says as DoS attack has to come in the form of a message bomb?

    It is the right term if you are able to convince a judge and jury. That's exactly what case law is. The law is changing everyday because people successfully make arguments like this.

    Say you're an IT contractor and you develop something for Apple, a portal or something. You have an agreement with Apple that you are the only person who can work on that portal, but Apple ignores that agreement and hires someone else to work on it. You are not happy so you decide to sabotage the work you did.

    What do you think will happen to you?

    It's apples product, and they decided they don't want people installing 3rd party software on their devices, it's ridiculous I know, but no one forces 1.1.1 on you.

    guys, this isn't apple's fault. they had built this firmware with no intentions of bricking phones.
    what's happening is that the new firmware sees invalid values in the seczone (caused by iunlock and anysim) and puts the phone in a diagnostic power state (0049..). it seems that sam & co. are working to utilize this state to re-activate the phone.
    in any case, this explains why ipsf phones aren't bricked - their method hits the eeprom and still leaves a valid seczone
    hopefully the dev team finishes the patch of the seczone to return to normal so any unlocked phone wishing to return to virgin can

    That's like trying to call banning someone from a forum or from an IRC channel "Denial of Service"

    So Ford should reimburse you if you put an after market turbo in a mustang, because it's yours and they're denying you service?
