It was developed by Jay Freeman
Jay Freeman estimates that over 10% of all iPhones are jailbroken http://www.whattheyplay.com/media/images/features/iphone-gaming-9-things-parents-should-know-216/spotart/Cydia.jpg iPhone Dev Team : iPhone Dev Team The iPhone Dev Team is a group of engineers in the iOS community who have developed many jailbreaking and unlocking applications not authorized by Apple Inc for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices, with the ability to sidestep the limitations placed on devices by the manufacturer. http://thegadgets.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/iphone-jailbreak.jpg Slide 5: http://i.i.com.com/cnwk.1d/i/tim//2010/08/01/jailbreak4_270x405.PNG On August 1, 2010, Comex released the first publicly available jailbreak for the iPhone 4 called JailbreakMe. The jailbreak is downloaded and activated by visiting a web page (JailbreakMe.com) on the device's web browser. The jailbreak is applied onto the iOS device right from within the Safari browser. It is able to jailbreak firmware versions 3.1.2 to 4.0.1. Benefits of Jailbreaking iPhone4 : Benefits of Jailbreaking iPhone4 http://www.iphone4jailbreak.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/iphone_4_photo.jpg 1. Wi-Fi Hotspot : 1. Wi-Fi Hotspot Using the iPhone as a Wi-Fi hotspot is still the number one reason to jailbreak the iPhone.
MyWi is the app to get it.
There's a new version of MyWi for the iPhone 4 OS, which you'll need to grab from Cydia. The app is called, simply, MyWi 4.0. 2. FaceTime (and More!) over 3G : 2. FaceTime (and More!) over 3G Another paid app worth checking out is My3G. This jailbreak app lets you do more things over 3G than you can on an un-jailbroken phone, including using FaceTime, which Apple restricts to Wi-Fi only. My3G users can also download TV shows and podcasts from iTunes over 3G or watch HD YouTube videos. 3. Unlocking the Phone : 3. Unlocking the Phone http://iphonefreakz.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/jailbreak.png Unlocking is not the same thing as jailbreaking. Jailbreaking allows you to install unapproved third party applications on your iPhone, but unlocking allows you to run the iPhone on a different carrier than its default. (For example, T-Mobile instead of AT&T in the U.S.) A carrier unlock for the iPhone 4 OS is now available. 4. Block Calls and Texts : 4. Block Calls and Texts Want to block calls, SMS or MMS messages from someone? The iBlacklist app makes that possible. Now iPhone 4/iOS 4 compatible, the app lets you select who to block and also offers parental controls for outgoing calls. http://www.webcredible.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/iphone1-300x221.jpg 5. More Settings, More Customization : 5. More Settings, More Customization iPhone owners who want to drill down deeper into their settings or further customize their devices beyond wallpaper backgrounds have no choice but to jailbreak. Yet once they do, there are options aplenty. A perennial favorite is SBSetttings, an app that puts quick toggles for the most heavily used features right at your fingertips. http://www.product-reviews.net/wp-content/userimages/2008/07/apple-iphone-firmware-20-jailbreak.jpg Slide 12: Although iOS 4 allows for homescreen backgrounds, Winterboard lets you customize even more options, like the battery indicator and the icons on the lock screen. Other apps, like LockInfo, for example, let you customize your phone's lockscreen to provide info like email and SMS notifications, missed calls, calendar events and more. More plugins are available to add things like weather, Twitter or RSS feeds, and more. http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/iphone-ios-4-jailbreak.jpg Slide 13: Jailbreaking an iPod or iPhone in the United States is legal and does not violate copyright laws defined by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
While the U.S. Copyright Office has declared the software legal, Apple discourages users from loading the bypass, reminding them that doing so will void their device's warranty. http://www.cellularforensics.com/images/court_approved_logo_1ene.jpg Slide 14: On August 11, 2010, Apple released iOS 4.0.2 for the iPhone/iPod Touch and iOS 3.2.2 for the iPad. These upgrades add no new features, but close the PDF Exploit which disables the users ability to "slide to jailbreak," and renders JailbreakMe useless. http://www.pqdvd.com/blog/iphone/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/iphone-113-hack.jpg Slide 15: Tweet from a member of the iPhone Dev Team , only after which the iOS update was released Slide 16: Jailbreak is made legal in US, so it has become tough for apple to keep up with the hackers.. http://creativebits.org/files/sad-apple-logo.png References : References http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/why_you_have_to_jailbreak_the_iphone_4_or_ios_4.php
