I could be wrong, but I don't call them upgrades when the main things they accomplish are to put chewing gum over all the holes that allow the magic created here to work. I just found out that I never made it any further than 5.3.3 after the last "upgrade" experience. Wi-Fi is on... block being tested... fingers crossed

Well. They just lost a customer.

Bye Bye amazon. You have upset me for the last time.

*Waves*

and for the record, me and my buddies put several thousand pounds thru your company this year alone. Which may seem like small potatoes to you... but, I assure you not one penny will be coming your way from now on.

Dammit why do they even care!!! How many people actually have the skills to even jailbreak. much less install 3rd party programs. Are you guys really done with amazon though? :-(

ORIGINAL POINTS BELOW: (which I will still honour)
Spoiler:
I will serve out my tenure here.

Not gonna abandon those who were kind enough to use the applications I have provided.

but not one penny of my personal money will be hitting amazons coffers ever again.
I'm not even certain that what they are doing is legal in Germany....

I saw no mention of this in their press release. But I digress and IANAL.

either way. I tire of this,

Advertising revenue was being lost thru ad blocking, we put a stop to that.

Tethering was hurting their data bills, we put a stop to that.

There was the possibility of rooting a device remotely and running dangerous code,
we put a stop to that.

I could go on. They should figure out which side their bread is buttered.

Anyways. I'm done with that company.

Next jailbreak should be stay closed-source if it is found in the future; otherwise we keep waiting for a patch on each update. Source could be shared among some trusted members but not publicly. "Trusted members" could mean members who have considerable contribution into hacks. (ie not me )

I assume this means 5.3.9 breaks the jailbreak?! I seriously hate these guys....

@twobob- did they also kill the USE_ALT_FONTS?
