...About Jailbreaking

So you want to jailbreak your iDevice? If you don't know what jailbreaking is, then you probably don't need it. I'm not going to explain what it is, there's google, go use it. I am here to talk about how you can do your own jailbreaking without spending any mullah.

In today's wonderful world of the world wide web and youtube, you can get info on almost anything. Youtube taught me how to be a jail breaker.

Basically what you need to have/do/download/ascertain is....
1. Ascertain your device's generation and iOS
2. Ascertain if there's a jailbreak software avail for your device and current iOS.
3. Download jailbreak software, iOS, back up iDevice
4. Check out Youtube for videos on how to jailbreak your particular device, build up your confidence.
5. Jailbreak away.

The state that your device goes into while jailbreaking can be scary, but that's supposed to happen. Here's what the process looks like on an iPod Touch...

You would be freaking out at this stage if you didn't watch a 'how-to' video before jailbreaking. Matrix much?
So, have you broken the jail on your iDevice?
