Jailbreaking:The pro’s and con’s

So you may be wondering what does jailbreaking do? I have written this blog to help show some features of jailbreaking. First jailbreaking lets you customize to your hearts content. You can have themes on your iPhone/iPod touch. Themes aren’t merely pictures but a whole idea that is used throughout the iPhone interface. Jailbreaking has lots of tweaks that make your iPhone more user friendly and fun!  Jailbreak also provides lots of goodies for those who like hacking. There are scripts and useful tools to aid your hacking needs. Then there are repositories(websites that offer more themes, tweaks and mods)  which can be added through Cydia. Cydia is the jailbreak store. It has been greatly updated, but still needs a little help in the loading(refreshing) category. The repositories are helpful because let you add other people’s products.
