Not a load at all. Removing the feature only fueled the fire. It wasn't long before Geohot released a hacked firmware. You think he would have done that if they never removed the feature?
They should have anticipated this at launch. I mean if you add an OS, especially one that's based on open code and free software, why would you expect the users to not try and expose the under workings of the system?
