quote: In our system we have the ability to deny mobile devices that have been jailbroken. Once your on the environment if the user jail breaks the device its then blocked from all communication. Not sure how the system is able to determine it but its in there for both iPhone and Android devices.
quote: These execs should learn that Jailbreak is not the end of the world but generally spurs sales of the product. Im not saying rim should turn a blind eye but should take a hard look at how many devices sold before and after the jailbreak then decide how soon they want to fix the issue. I know the Playbook has been one of the worst selling devices and a jailbreak might just get the device out there. I know a lot of people who wont buy the device until its jailbroken. Just saying.
