No major software complications, no major hardware protections, and no… as simple as blocking access to these servers so that no one can access the massive downloads from your terminal. And although in the UK the rates are a real wonder, they are also quite restrictive.
In reality, however, it is all due to human error, as the company has already stated that it was not its intention to block access to these software servers. This same company also includes blocking for many streaming or even erotic-pornographic content pages.
A good solution? Of course, if Apple wanted to actively fight piracy
and the jailbreak seems to be a much simpler solution than continuing to avoid the jailbreak by using complicated hardware and software techniques.
Update : To avoid misunderstandings, we want to clarify that this entry only mentions the fact that (apparently by mistake) Cydia has been blocked on several servers and this has led to the debate that, at the wrong time (at the very wrong time) Apple could ask to shut down servers, but all this is just lucubration and opinions, which have nothing to do with defending any position on our part. The only measure against Jailbreak would be this solution killing flies with guns, but for this to happen first Jailbreak should be declared illegal (which it is not) and second it should be backed by a judge, which is quite unlikely.
In any case, the position and our opinion as a blog is that no type of censorship is good, and much less the one mentioned in the article, which attacks neutrality on the net head on. We are sorry for any misunderstandings that may have arisen.
