Why Jailbreak my iPhone, iPad or iPod touch?
Jailbreaking gives you an alternate "App store" called Cydia. Where you can download Apps straight to your device. You can still use the original app store in conjunction with Cydia, nothing about how you originally used your device changes just from Jailbreaking.
Sounds cool! so what can I actually do?
-You can add five or more icons in your homescreen dock.
-Use the Bluetooth function to transfer files, just like most phones can!
-Install themes, customize your iPhone and make its UI completely unique to fit you.
-Show information in your lockscreen such as twitter/facebook updates.
This is just a tiny selection of what is possible! I will be updating with a full list of recommend themes and applications soon, including themes I've released on Cydia.
(Many other devices can be Jailbroken too, the Windows phone, Android devices can be "rooted", the PS3 can be Jailbroken, which has been publicized in recent months by the Geohot got sued case)
