    If these rotten apple geeks damage our iphones without our consent then we got them.

    We can collect the needed contact information for everyong welling to join. We Look for a firm who will do it for the exposure (free) and we nail them.
    Maximus, that’s a really great idea!

    I'm sure that any lawyer would be happy to pick this case up. Not because he/she thought that they had a chance, but rather, because he/she was interested in your money and knew that this was an open and closed case that wouldn't hurt their record too much, but would certainly pay all of his Xmas gifts.

    It's really simple Maximus, have a quick look at the terms and conditions that came with your iPhone as well as the addendum. Once you’re finished, have a look at Apple’s software/hard frame contract on their website. If you still have questions, and wish to insight the forum into filing a class action suit against Apple before anything has even been released, you’re on your own here since you’ll lose and, what’s more, Apple’s lawyers will make you, me and everyone else in this Forum seem like a bunch of lowly hackers.

    Sorry to single you out, Maximus, since you are far from the only one who thinks this way, but 1) if you have installed non Apple applications on your iPhone via means that are not authorized, and 2) if you are using your iPhone with a operator that is not AT&T, etc., etc., etc., then as far as Apple and the courts are concerned, you are using their device contrary to its intended use and if said device is immobilized as the result of normal updates/service patches because said updates/patches interfere with what you’ve done to your iPhone, how is that grounds for a Class Action Suit against Apple?

    If anyone’s wrong, it’s you, me and everyone else out there that have modified their phones. You might not like it and you might not agree with what Apple is forcinwhatg upon you, but no one forced you to buy an iPhone. What’s more no one is forcing you to upgrade.

    Sorry if I seem hard, but I’m just trying to be voice of reason here and protect those of us – like me – who see the iPhone as a science project of sorts and who enjoy taking the iPhone to heights that not even Apple thought possible. Whether this is done with FM 1.0.2 or FM X.Y.Z., it doesn’t really matter to me.

    oh come on.

    "your property" includes licensed software, a license that you agreed to when you opened the box and one that you have violated in "hacking the phone" with the tools provided in this group. If apple does something in a new version that causes that to not work, but it has no impact on those who did not violate their license agreement, there is no basis for any kind of action against apple. (except of course in the idiotic court system here in the US where people who spill hot coffee in their laps win, but let's not go there)


    The rational path forward is for anyone here to wait until the update is out, see what the experts find and then update/upgrade based on everything you learn here.

    In the mean time, relax and make some phone calls!

    Just as an aside, the McDonalds hot coffee case was actually legit. While it sounded stupid from a headline, actually reading through what happened revealed that McDonald's really did heat up coffee well past a safe temperature. (and admitted to, and explained why doing so saved them money too)

    But yeah, class action against Apple for a phone where the plaintiff voided the warrenty is a no go.

    No way.

    I am not going to feed the lawyers.

    The lawyers are going to get millions. What do you expect to get, like $5 store credit?

    Just send your iPhone back to apple
    and get another one
    After getting to much return they will learn their lesson
