iOS jail breaking is defined as “iOS jailbreaking, or simply jailbreaking, is the process of removing the limitations imposed by Apple on devices running the iOS operating system through use of custom kernels. Such devices include the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and 2nd Gen Apple TV.
Jailbreaking allows users to gain root access to the operating system, allowing iOS users to download additional applications, extensions, and themes that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store. A jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad running iOS can still use the App Store, iTunes, and other normal functions, such as making telephone calls.” (Wikipedia) I believe personally that Apple, has a complete hold on what you can do with your iDevice. Do I feel that people should have the freedom to jailbreak and customize to whatever, whenever they please. Absolutely. However there is one catch. Jailbreaking also allows you to hack and pirate apps.
This is very wrong and not to mention illegal. For the respect of the iOS developers, I will not disclose how to go about getting these pirated apps. Free music and movies protected under copyright law are also found, again I will not disclose how to get these. I think that being able to put tweaks and themes on your device should be completely in your control.
So do I support jailbreaking? Yes, I do. Just don’t do things the FBI don’t want you to do ok? To jailbreak, from 4.3.3 and below, untethered, visit jailbreakme.com on your mobile browser. And again I remind you to don’t do anything illegal.
That is a subject near to my heart cheers
Thanks Joe! But I Was wondering what happens if I connect my phone to the computer and it’s running iTunes. I heard from someone that it’s going to lock all jailbroken iPhones permanently..
Can you please clarify? Is there another way where I can jailbreak but still use iTunes?
You can definitely still use iTunes, just DO NOT allow iTunes to upgrade your iDevice
You will lose the jailbreak
I won’t be able to thank you fully for the articles on your web-site. I know you’d put a lot of time and energy into all of them and hope you know how much I appreciate it. I hope I could do the same for someone else sometime.
