Looking for a reason to jailbreak your iPhone? Here are five fantastic apps--apps that will rapidly become "must have" apps--that you can download and install onto your newly jailbroken iDevice.
A team of iOS programmers called Evasi0n have jailbroken that latest iPhone/iPod/iPad operating system, iOS 7.0.4. Jailbreaking allows uses to install home-brew software and run unapproved apps from the Cydia software repository.
The jailbreak takes “5 minutes” and works on Windows and OS X.
Original iPhone hardware hacker, George Hotz or “Geohot”, has beaten the iPhone Dev Team to an iOS 4.1 jailbreak called Limera1n, giving users to wish to jailbreak their iPad (on iOS 3.2.2), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4th Gen or the iPod Touch 3rd Gen that ability again, after iOS 4.1 initially took it away, with Geohot promising the jailbreak should work with the upcoming iOS 4.2 and future
With the launch of the 2012 iPhone 5 still at least six to nine months away, all of the attention is on the unjailbreakable iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but as of very late 2011, the iPhone 4, iPad and iPod Touch with A4 processors, those who’ve waited for a jailbreak can finally get it.
The wait for an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 is finally over, with French hacker Pod2G and the Dev Team hackers releasing a jailbreak tool called “Absinthe”, which is indeed a form of “greenpois0n”.
