    All the good ones cost! Sorry, not worth it for me. Although I do with Apple would incorporate some of the features.

    I only see a couple of things I would use so I don’t really see the point.

    Just from the screenshot of the video – I’m not gonna watch it… you can’t even spell “to” correctly?

    dang so it can do all the things android phones do out of the box

  • kultofmedia

    In the end she says 100% Safe, 100% Legal, and 100% Free but fails to mention that it 100% breaks your warranty.

    Actually it does not exactly break it, it kind of suspends it. If you bring in a jailbroken device they wont service it. If you go home, reset it to normal and come in they will service it.

    All I can say is this about Jailbreaking. Why bother? Why did you buy a iPhone? To have a stable, clean smooth experience with a organized app store? Or maybe to waste about the first 3 hours figuring out how to jailbreak (I have done it myself it takes 5-10 minutes but with all the tinkering come on). I bought it to do as I said before. Not to waste my time. Its a tool, not a toy.

    If you want all this go get a android phone, you will get the slow, bogged down worthless piece of junk there. I prefer my zipping fast iPad 2 with all the native stuff. If there is something we want so badly apple always seems to do it, but only better.

    Yup you can get the same old slow experience that makes you want to smash your head against the wall. “Hugs my Native iPad 2″

    No, I don’t think so. I much rather not have my iPhone or iPad exposed to the wide world of badly written Apps and malicious code.

    Only really interesting thing would be Personal hotspot (without paying extra to my provider).
    Rest are mostly cosmetics and that’s not important (for me).

    the facial recognition is damn cool. other than that i dont see any worth of jailbreaking for me. the default are just fine.

  • Brent Davis

    I jailbroke my iPhone 4 a couple of months ago and got rid of it and restored my phone back to the way it was. Sure the extra features and tweaks are cool, but it drains your battery hardcore! Also it made the phone pretty unstable. Just wait for iOS 6, that will be awesome :)

    … What?

    From time to time I jailbreak my iPhone/iPad, use it for a couple of days then restore it back. Jailbreak tweaks are tempting sometimes but they aren’t really worth having a buggy device.

    I don’t do anything Apple doesn’t want me to do.

    I think I’ve seen her in some porn.
