I did switch, in fact i do every two years or so, point is Android isn't ready for prime-time still, glitch junk pros can't use.

Right but then why use a glitch junk OS with less functionality like iOS? It's like saying "if I'm going to shaft myself, I wanna make sure it hurts".

Wow. This is bad. Lots of people that use iPhones get them jail broken to enable more features being that iPhones don't have too many features to begin with. Not taking a shot against the iPhone, just stating a fact.

There are one of two options here that iOS fans can do:

Either don't jailbreak your iPhone(thats rather obvious).

Buy the most secure device in mobile(read: a BlackBerry).

The 64 bits aren't at risk.

Well months of us commenters telling him he was full of it didn't phase him until one of the authors here (Michael I think it was) wrote an article about how he was full of it. Then he disappeared and only rarely pokes his head out. iOS and Apple talking point fans lost a hero that day.

The thing is that once you jailbreak or root, you're always under threat.

What?? Malware on iOS? Impossible!!!! Hogwash!!!

Just like with Android tho....side loading is nice at times. I guess the key word is untrusted people.

The developer for TelsaLED...you can get the apps from their website or the Play Store. I guess if it isnt a forum like XDA or whatever forum Apple devs hang out in..be careful.

i checked with iFile, i'm clean! I can't image what sketchy software you would have to install that this would be attached to it.
