This site/forum seems to be a very decent site filled with decent members. I am a member on HackForums, where I have helped hundred of members and thousands of topics.

Though we appreciate any help on the site, we do not allow discussion on how to jailbreak iDevices here at BleepingComputer.com.

Otherwise, thanks for offering to help with iDevice related issues.

That's absurd! Jail breaking iPods are not against the law and only by breaking the OS sandbox are you thoroughly able to analyze the machine. It can be used as a whitehat method and I do not understand why it's against the rule. All my services are free so there is no need to worry about bad transactions. I offer jail breaking because I also happen to look up to the developers who spend days without sleep to exploit a vulnerability for us. It's called respect for the developers. 

 
Also, jail breaking can actually secure your device if you have skill. I wish to talk to whoever set this rule in place. 
 
There does not seem to be a logical or consistent reason as to why jail breaking is forbidden.

Though I do not agree with all of your reasons, I do personally think that you should be able to access whatever you want on a device you own.

Unfortunately, my personal beliefs do not matter as it is currently illegal in the US to jailbreak an iPod, iTouch, or iPad. You can legally jailbreak an iPhone purchased before 2013, but newer phones are illegal to do so. Trying to enforce this rule and determine when a phone was purchased is to much of pita.

It is for these reasons that we do not allow jailbreaking on the site.

Two small details.
1.) Unlocking 2013 devices are illegal. Jailbreaking the file system is an entirely different course of action.
http://www.cultofmac.com/213144/unlocking-a-new-iphone-is-now-illegal-but-jailbreaking-is-still-safe-what-it-all-means-for-you/
2.) Thw bill for jailbreaking was not renewed, but it is not illegal, either. It seems to lie in the grey zone, and I assume that it would be permitted under the circumstances that it is not used for malicious purposes.

Apple has yet to declare a specific detest towards jailbreaking and they did mention the Evad3rs name as thanking them to find vulnerabilities.

You may view such information the the Apple site with their firmware change logs.

I appreciate your replies.

I multiple questions, but I'll start with one.

 

Device: iPod touch 4th gen

Problem: It's quite unstable.

Firmware: 6.1.3 semi-tethered using iOS 6.0

 

So recently I decided that my os was too outdated, games were preventing me from playing since I was on 5.0.1. I know you can get around the blocks, but it was time to upgrade. Poor me decided not to check the status of the 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak, but I lucked out with the semi-tethered jailbreak. The first thing I did was get OpenBackup and restore my all cydia tweaks and whatnots. Obviously some would be incompatible, so I stripped them down to my basics. Flux, sbsettings, and adblock are my main tweaks. However, my iPod is still just overall slow. It crashes apps WAY more than it did on ios 5. Also, iAPcracker seems to be broken. 

 

Any advice? I have quite a bit of experience myself, but definitely not as much as yourself.

Semi tethered exploits are sometimes incompatible with apps.
Another issue may be it's an iPod. I can't help with iAP cracker as that is piracy, but Adblock is very systematic for the iOS so that seems to be the heavy tweak.

I recommend you get NCSettings over SBS.

I'll try. I used NCSettings a while back on my iPod 3rd gen and it was ridiculously unstable, but I'll try it again.

Perhaps you could give BatteryDoctor Pro, a shot.

Those type of apps seem like snake oil. Do they really work? I've never believed.

It's more than you think.

It offers toggle control, and this one is free and lightweight. It works.

So by doing that you lose access to the app store, but you gain access to the android store? And I'm assuming this is reversible?

 

EDIT: Could you point me in the right direction? I can't seem to find any active, stable projects. iDroid was all I could find.

iDroid is potentially the only existing Android OS that was developed for the iOS.
