    idk how things are in usa but in eu if you bought the device you have full right to mess with software. iOS jailbreaking is legal, hackintoshes are legal no matter what licence agreement says. You can also put CFW(custom firmware) on ps3 if you dont play pirated games. You only put free software on your hardware.

    Well, tech companies don’t even have control of their own tech at this point because apple’s iPhone, the most private and hard to crack phone on the market, was hacked into by the government to get some terrorists information even after they asked apple and said no. So at this point I could be watched or listened to by any electronic appliance that is remotely smart.

    Let's be honest - if you knew any of these and still purchased one of those devices (and agreed to those license terms), you have no right to complain. Why? Because you literally agreed to it, and you voted with your wallet. You showed the vendor that what they're did was right, and they should continue to follow that course. So, no bitching, ok?

    Now, what you SHOULD have done, is NOT buy this piece of technology, and without customers, the vendors would be forced to change their policy to more reasonable ones. So, is this vendor's fault? No. Is this your fault? Absolutely.

    And if you DIDN'T knew any of this when you signed that contract with the devil... well... you should be smarter than this.

    A federal court ruling determined it to be unlawful to void a product warranty for 3rd party repairs in the United States. If you live in the U.S., the "void if removed" sticker is meaningless.
