    Actually from what is being said (not ready to test it myself yet) it doesn’t only effect unsigned applications. Part of the process of creating the .ipk file is to package it and sign it.

    I disagree with trying to make that academic distinction. Self-signing is code not signed by any certifying authority and thus is “unsigned” as considered in the industry.

    If Apple let anyone self-sign a .app, the word “jailbreak” wouldn’t have entered the 3G lexicon.

    Self-signing is still unsigned code in the OHA’s view, Apple’s view, and in the view of I suspect Palm would agree with such statements if asked.
