    I mean we've been in the grey area until Apple declared it as such. Until a few days ago, jailbreaking was just considered "not in-warranty" situation.

    So, in short. Yes and No. Just depends how you look at it.

    I agree it's a grey area

    But in my mind once I've purchased an iPhone, paid all the duty owed to apple to own the product, what I then do with it is up 2 me.

    And I real find it hard to imagine any court of law ruling I couldn't do that

    Is this only for the 3G iPhone? Because I don't recall signing any agreement when I bought my 2G phone.

    iPhone 3GS / 3.1.2 JB (PwnageTool) / 04.26.08 carrier-locked, Carrier Logo Fixer / Cydia / 1000 posts on Hackint0sh

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Well, thats the thing. Usage of the product constitutes as agreeing to the Agreement. And thats not from me. Open up a new Macbook Pro software package or an Apple CD package.

    The other thing is that now with the 3G they make sure you agree to the Terms and Agreements, including warranty. Which is another reason why you NEED to sign up for a contract once you purchase a phone.

    This is only true for countries where exclusive contracts exist. In others you can run down to your local mobile store, put your bucks on the table, get your phone and run back home again. You don't sign anything. The 3G contract thing in the US and other countries is only there cause in the 2G era, insane amounts of phones were gray exported or just unlocked and used with other carries and AT&T was pissed about it. Well understandable, they failed to think about it before signing the multi million $$ contract with apple.

    I see what you mean. There's probably a warning on the packaging somewhere, that using it means you agree to something. In the package I found the "Important Product Information Guide". It says on page 15:

    There you can download the iPhone Terms and Conditions, which say:

    This means that a user agrees to not reverse the firmware -- but the question remains whether such a restriction is legally allowed. I think that's what the debate between Apple (supported by record companies) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (supported by Mozilla and others) is really about. And as the OP says, the courts seem to favour "us" the jailbreakers, at least in the USA. That would mean that jailbreaking is legal, simply because Apple has no right to make us agree not to do it.

    yea there is no way in hell that they can get away with saying "decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, decrypt, modify, or create derivative works of the iPhone Software"

    i mean... doesnt that kinda turn them into a monopoly again if they try and lock out ANY change the user can make

    Which again leads to the problems:

    1.) is a post sale restriction legal?
    2.) how strong is a EULA in court anyhow
    3.) Anyone can download the IPSW i.e. which does not demand agreeing a EULA for it, so you would have firmware to reverse engineer without EULA limitations

    There is more than one justristical trap, other than that, how far goes fair use?

    Also DMCA allowed up til today phone unlocking specificly, so reverse engineering the device and jailbreaking can just be declared part of the unlock process and would be legal even in terms of DMCA again.

    I think you can turn it up side down and back, there is not really much which can be done to clear it up really.
