    Chevron has what's close to a jailbreak. I personally just paid the developer unlock fee of $99 to Microsoft. You can then "side load" XAP files (the actual programs themselves) through a desktop app from MS as if you were a developer working in your app like they do in iOS. Microsoft actually embraces the indie developer and works with the Chevron Labs. I think the only app I have on the Titan is a screen capturer. I needed it to make better wallpapers and stuff.

    I left the Apple world to avoid the cat/mouse game of jailbreaking so I figured why be official and enjoy the OS as it is. It has everything I needed when I was JBing an iPhone anyway..
    for me at least.

    You do know that jailbreaking was deemed legal by the DMCA.

    Yes, but Apple actively works against it. Opposite of what Microsoft is doing.

    While 'hacking' is legal, if you brick your phone Apple will still void your warranty.

    Oh and to officially answer...yeah I knew it was deemed legal. The cat and mouse game has gotten old for ne though. Apple does everything in its power to maintain control. Think Different is fine as long as it's done the Apple way.

    I wish apple would understand that once the product is bought they have no control over what the user does with it. Yet another reason why I left my iPod touch. And went to WP7.:D

    I gotta say the dev unlock is so worth it. I just side loaded Supreme Shortcuts the other day and now I have nice tiles that direct link me to settings that a few clicks away. Really handy for things like checking battery life and so on. Hopefully a color picker for themes is coming soon.
