Hmm... Somehow this didn't happen in five year with iPhone (and jailbreak programs). People clearly distinguish jailbreak programs from mailware (of course some jailbreak programs contain mailware, too - and, again, there are no confusion: jailbreak is still perceived as good while mailware embedded in it is perceived as bad). The existence of Cydia Store proves this quite clearly. Care to explain why "secure boot" will be treated differently?
I don't even know if you overestimate or underestimate capabilities of Joe Sickpack. "Normal people" can distingush malware (which does something bad with your device) from jailbreak program (which gives you access to something-not-approved-by-Big-Brother), but it their mind these two things are quite separate! The fact that both often use the exact same code flies right over their head!
