    Hey guys,


    I was just wondering if any of you has jailbreaked their iPhone and what are the advantages? Are there risks?

    Also, how did you do it? Did you follow a tutorial on YouTube or did someone else do it for you? Is it complicated if you have no idea of how technology works?

    I was thinking of jailbreaking mine but when I read online there are so many comments saying that they regret it but at the same time others say its fantastic and stuff... :-/

    I've had several iPhones since they first came out, and they've all be jailbroken....AND BEST OF ALL.....I've never had to use the vile, evil, Tea Party funding AT&T! Not to mention, I save about 40 bucks a month on my bill by not using AT&T.

    Disadvantages? ZERO

    No point in jailbreaking unless you want to remove the SIM lock and take your phone to another carrier. Or unless you want to run another app store.

    Risks are your phone will run like an Android does normally.

    It may crash, bug out, suffer blank screen, and otherwise not function at the most unfortunate times icon_cool.gif

    When my Android hangs, I take out the battery and replace it. Less than a minute later (start-up) it's back to normal functionality, and I resume normal use.

    That's what I wanna do. The phone company I'm with won't unlock my phone until our "deal" is over which is a 3 year plan I took... So basically in 2015.

    The only risk is your phone not working. Also once you jailbreak it your warranty broken. A lot of people seem to over exaggerate the benefit of it.
    I think this is a site people use, if you access it on your iPhone it should tell you how to do so. I think its a simple swipe.

    I'm not sure if it supports iPhone 4S and later.

    You can jailbreak your phone and have next to no problems. My iPhone 4S was jailbroken for a year and I barely had any problems and when the headphone jack broke all I did was reset it to factory settings and took it back to At&T lol

    Done it a few times with a variety of model iphones.
    Ultimately, I don't think it's worth it.

    It's always far more stable and has a less laggy uptime without the jailbreak.
    Plus the advantages of jailbreaking aren't that great anyway, seeing you also have to pay for the best jailbroken apps and if you download itunes app illegally, it's always a long process to finally get it on the phone and then you can never update it anyway.

    Again....I have had MANY jailbroken iPhone over the years and never had a single problem. I think there are a lot of people out there jailbreaking who have no idea what the fuck they're doing, so then everyone runs around screaming how it will ruin your phone.

    Fact #1 - Jailbreaking works great if done correctly
    Fact #2 - If you don't know what you're doing, you will fuck it up

    Ahh, what are you talking about??

    Jailbreaking your iPhone is exactly that. Taking your iPhone out of jail. You aren't bound by Apple's restrictions. It's 100% worth it:

    1) Im running a different theme (OS X lion Ultimatum) - check it.
    2) You use repo sites on Cydia to dl the best apps and utilities (they have been cracked)
    3) I use Installous, which has enabled me to dl about 100.00 in apps, yes for free in 5 minutes
    4) Customize your phone with no limits (Eg. Adding a status bar, removing and/or changing the lock etc.
    5) Takes literally 2 minutes to jailbreak untethered using an application. Impossible to mess up.

    Let's just say if I didn't jailbreak my iPhone, I would have bought the Samsung Galaxy S3. Apple use to be the first in innovation and now they are introducing features in new versions of their phones, which have already been available long ago in the Android world and ages ago in the jailbroken world.

    Yea it takes the cake on the saying, "Once you go black, you won't go back".
