Apple IPad is a device that gadget freaks and especially bloggers love to buy one for its simple, easy to use touch navigation and performance. You can read the specifications and pricing of apple ipad here. Even i have an idea to buy one in next 6 months :). I am waiting for some upgrade in hardware expected to be done with Apple IPad next version. Right now i have IPod Touch and simply love the apple products. So let me tell you what is jail breaking an IPad, IPhone or IPOD Touch. lets start with the spirit jailbreak review.
Jail Breaking means ?
It is a process that allows iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users to run any code on their devices, as opposed to only that code authorized by Apple. Once jailbroken, iPhone users are able to download many applications previously unavailable through the App Store via unofficial installers such as Cydia, as well as illegally pirated apps. A jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch is still able to use and update apps downloaded and purchased from Apple’s official App Store.
Jailbreaking is distinct from SIM unlocking, which, once completed, means that the mobile phone will accept any SIM without restriction on, for example, the country or network operator of origin. Jailbreaking, according to Apple, voids Apple’s warranty on the device, although this is quickly remedied by restoring the device in iTunes.
Cydia founder Jay Freeman estimates that 8.5% of all iPods and iPhones are jailbroken.
One of the important feature that many people prefer to go for jail breaking is its multi tasking feature, which apple is yet to add it in its device.
