Jailbreaking an iPhone or another iOS device used to be a hassle and and a field where many people tread with fear of bricking their iDevices. Jailbreaking has come a long way and now it is perfectly legal to jailbreak your phone, be it iPhone or any other smartphone (The Library of Congress approved a DMCA exemption in 2010 for jailbreaking cell phones).
"Along with the jailbreak, I am releasing a patch for the main vulnerability which anyone especially security conscious can install to render themselves immune; due to the nature of iOS, this patch can only be installed on a jailbroken device. Until Apple releases an update, jailbreaking will ironically be the best way to remain secure."JailbreakMe is doing a great job of freeing iPhones, iPods and iPads. JailbreakMe automatically includes Cydia, a package management interface that serves as an alternative to the iTunes Appstore.
Recently released JailbreakMe 3.0 is capable of freeing most of the iOS devices. Freeing means, that you are able to install apps from other than from iTunes, like Cydia, the way your iPhone should be. JailbreakMe 3.0 has been able to free closer to 2 million iPhones, iPods and iPads from Steve Jobs clutches, er I meant Tim Cook.
It is much easier than the way we did our initial jailbreaks using more common paths, such as Blackra1n and redsn0w.
The big boys of jailbreaking were responsible for the JailbreakMe, and brought to you by comex, with the help of Grant Paul (chpwn), Jay Freeman (saurik), MuscleNerd, and many others.
To quote JailbreakMe and Comex;
