Jailbreak iPhone 4.1: Why do you Jailbreak?

By Daniel Chubb - Sep 25, 2010

Some iPhone 4 owners really want an iOS 4.1 jailbreak, and this can be for many reasons including Cydia apps and using Game Center on the iPhone 3G with Redsn0w 0.9.6, but being able to jailbreak your iPhone can be tricky.

Recently we have seen some users go for the Sn0wBreeze 2.0.1 download, and risks have been highlighted with the GreenPois0n download that was said to be a fake, with this in mind and the risks that can be involved, why do you jailbreak?

Some countries allow jailbreaking legally, and others still have an illegal stance on the matter but there are ethical reasons about jailbreaking Apple iOS devices. Are you worried about the risks and do you think you have a right to jailbreak?

While I have owned every generation of iPhone and respect everyone’s choice, I have never found a need to jailbreak my iPhone 1G, 2G, 3G, or now 4G device. There are useful things that can be done with a jailbroken device, which opens up options Apple decided not to allow. On Apple TV this could be using the USB port for storage, which was not possible if the device was not unlocked.

    is there a real way to unlock 3g 4.1 or jailbreak

  • Kav

    there was never an iphone 1G but I agree, SBsettings is a good reason.
    unlocking for other networks maybe another,
    I dont agree with cracked (stealing) software but its a good way to test an app before purchasing them although it's more hassle than its worth considering the price.
    you can also customise your phone, also don't agree with phone companies charging for tethering, they are already charging you for data so why charge you again for the same data? especially if they are your broadband provider too.

    yep sb settings i like, its faster to switch wifi, cellurar data, thetering and the rest just with a swipe and youre on the customizable switch board.
    I can also use blacklist if im with some girl to block others or just block unwanted contacts. why do I have to be woken up at night by some jerk or put the iphone off? I can also hide apps with sb settings even the sms, calls, mail, photos and any other apple app, then switch to it trough spotlight. there is also call counter and sms counter and also call clear which lets you delete any call and not all of the list. and some other handy apps too which apple do not put on iphone. if these things where on iphone i wouldnt have the need to jailbreak.

    SBSettings, RandomRing, iFile, Cycontact and few others utilities. This is why I am waiting for JB.

    I think if u own a smartphone like apple products or any other like milia or so on, everyone has the choice and ones you purchased a phone you have rights to do with it all you want, even break it if that’s the matter goes towards , but if u on contract that could be a problem for jailbreaking or unlocking as it voids the warranty , I currently own an 3GS and Im unlocked due to my network provider , going on holidays, and I’m not looking for a jailbreak , had problems before with jailbreak on previous firmwares, so end of the day I would and I wouldn’t jailbreak, it’s a Choice so Choose carefully.

    What do you mean do I think I have the right to jailbreak? It’s my iPhone and I do with her as I please, geez. Even if the software is “licensed” big fucking deal.

  • WuseOne
