What is Jailbreaking?

Technical Definition of Jailbreak:
The iPhone, iPod touch, iPad & Apple TV hack that allow users to gain access to the entire Unix filesystem. In Unix terms, this refers to changing the root of the directory tree to /.


Understandable Definition of Jailbreak:
A hack that gains access to areas of the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad that users aren’t supposed to mess with. Typically, this is an immediate prelude to either installing cool programs, unlocking the handset for use with another cellular network, or both.

Through jailbreaking, you are able to add additional applications to your iDevice. It allows you to do so by adding an application called Cydia to your iDevice. It also allows modding (changing) of your iDevice application icons, wallpaper, dock, status bar, chat bubbles, weather backgrounds, keyboard….etc. Wondering why you would want to jailbreak your iDevice? Visit our Why Jailbreak page.

For more information on the Cydia or Installer applications, see our f.a.q page.

For instructions on how to jailbreak your iDevice, see our jailbreak page.
