Why Jailbreak?

Jailbreaking essentially means that you are quashing the restrictions imposed by Apple, together with that of your carrier. In order to jailbreak your device, you will have to install a special software on your computer which will then connect itself with your device breaking the file system open so that you can make any changes you like on your own.

Now, the question is why would anyone want to jailbreak his terminal. Apple does not permit a wide range of titles and software to be accessed or uploaded on its devices, and are therefore not available on the App Store altogether either. Therefore, by jailbreak, you can customize the settings of your iPhone by downloading applications by third party developers and also customized ring tones. If you are willing to take another step forward beyond this point, then you can use jailbreak to unlock your phone which would allow you to switch over to another cellular network from the carrier you purchased your iPhone from. But at the same time, jailbreaking has its own set of disadvantages and there are reasons why you would not want to perform this procedure.

Once jailbreak-ed, you will get access to a wide range of apps which have not been allowed by Apple to appear on the App Store. Most of these apps tend to be quite useful while others can be really fun, and overall, the experience is quite cool. While the App Store already features a number of great apps, but after you jail break, you get access to even more apps which are currently unauthorized.

There are two methods available for jailbreaking the iPhone which are namely tethered and untethered. However, you should not confuse these terminologies with internet tethering in which you basically convert your handset into a cellular modem.

Tethered jailbreak has been used by jail breakers since many years now and involves connecting your iPhone or any other Apple device directly to the computer in which the software has been installed. However, tethered jailbreak can be very frustrating considering the fact every time the battery of your device runs out, you will have to link it with the computer again so that the jailbreak application can reboot the hardware. So if you want to jailbreak your iPhone through tethered jailbreak, the first thing you will have to do is to connect your device with the computer and relaunch the software. After this, you will have to select the boot tethered option and your iPhone will boot. When you are done, you can continue to use your iPhone as usual but keep in mind that you will have to connect it and repeat the process again in case the battery dies.

On the other hand, untethered jailbreak does not require you to connect your device again and again to your computer after you have performed the process initially. You do not have to worry about the battery of your iPhone getting completely drained anymore after you have installed the software. After you have recharged your iPhone, it will continue working in the same manner. There is no need to reconnect and boot the hardware again and again as is the case with tethered jailbreak. This is the reason why a large number of people undertake untethered jailbreak for their iPhone since it is a rather trouble free process and you do not have to repeat the procedure again and again.

Untethered jailbreak is obviously a preferred option considering the fact that it is generally free of any hassle. In case a untethered jailbreak software is not available for the latest iOS, then a recommended option would be to be patient till the time it is released.
