Advantages of Jailbreaking an iPhone

Jailbreaking of iPhone is very popular since Apple has launched iPhone devices, a mass community of iPhone Dev Team is putting their effort in Jailbreaking of iPhone with every new iOS releases by apple. Do you know the advantages of Jailbreaking an iPhone? if not then you must have to read this post and know the advantage of jailbreaking iPhone.

iOS jailbreaking, or simply jailbreaking, is the process of removing the limitations imposed by Apple on devices running on the iOS operating system through use of custom kernels. Such devices include the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Apple TV 2G. Jailbreaking allows users to gain full access (or 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, via installers such as Cydia. You can refer my post about Jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.3(8J2) using redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc17.

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. Unlike rooting an Android device, jailbreaking is necessary if the user intends to run software not authorized by Apple.

At its core, jailbreaking an Apple iOS device gives access to its root filesystem, allowing modification and installing third-party software components. This gives the user more control over the device and may enable features that were previously unavailable. In many cases, jailbreaking also voids the device’s warranty.

Advantages Of Jailbreaking an iPhone:
  • Under the DMCA of 2010, jailbreaking Apple iDevices is legal in the United States, although Apple has announced that the practice “can void the warranty.
  • Cracked iPhone Games and Apps Installation – Jailbreaking is necessary if the user intends to run software not authorized by Apple.
  • Gain deeper customization of device (e.g. theming, redesigned user interfaces and customize lock screens.)
  • Jailbreaking also allows users to use paid apps from the App Store for free.
  • It’s Fast and Easy – One of the best thing about jailbreaking an iPhone is you can easily jailbreak it within few minutes.
  • Video chat over 3G Network – FaceTime video chat is a new feature of the iPhone 4, but it only works over a Wi-Fi network, which may be difficult to find in many situations. Jailbreaking the iPhone 4 allows for FaceTime video chat over a 3G connection.

So these are the advantages of Jailbreaking iPhone you should be aware of.
