Prankster jailbreaks Apple Store display iPhone

A prankster has snuck into his local Apple temple of consumerism and footled with one of the display models.

Just days after the US Copyright Office announced that jailbreaking you iPhone is legal, Ethan Zachary Andrew filmed himself installing the latest web-based crack for the Holy Handset under the noses of Apple employees - the whole process taking just a couple of minutes.

We're sure Apple will cotton onto the the mischief pretty quickly and block access to on all display devices in short order, but it's pretty hilarious that the company didn't act before the video got out into the wild.
