I wonder why Apple customers don't sue for such things
I mean when you buy something, it's your right to use it in any way you want. The things you do with it may be illegal, but just because you install an alternative firmware it doesn't mean you are going to do illegal things.
Particularly in times like these where mobile phones track you and TV-sets track you and play adds to you, it is important to take your right to "integrity and secrecy of information processing equipment" and demand free (as in speech) firmware.
Apple consumers sue or petition Apple for such much, like their favourite app not making it, or the antenna being badly designed, why don't they do it for the important stuff?
