100 Reasons to Jailbreak iPhone [Video]


Ever since the iPhone was hacked back in 2007, there have been 1000s of jailbreak apps and tweaks that allow you to unlock the true potential of your iOS device.

While Apple continues to add new features with every iOS software update, some of which have been inspired by the jailbreak apps / tweaks, iOS hackers and developers have continued to release new tweaks and apps that makes it much better and fun to use an iOS device.

It is so addictive that users don’t update their iOS device to the latest software update until the jailbreak tools have been updated for the new iOS firmware.

    My first reason for jailbreaking: Activator allows me to skip to the next track while biking, by holding the home button, the only button I can easily press through my pocket, and this makes a huge difference, since I don’t have custom iphone headphones, and taking my iphone out while riding my bike is a bad idea.

    • Paul

      To know you can skip to the next rack by double clicking the headphone where the mic is. The new ones can also adjust the volume up and down. FYI.

      • Paul…..The headphone that come with the iPhone are terrible. They are uncomfortable. They don’t sit in the ear properly and just fall out all the time. They just plain suck….. so who cares about the could clicking or the volume adjusting…

      Gillian, Unless you’re riding out in the middle of nowhere, with zero traffic, wearing headphones while riding your bike is not a good idea at all.

    First of all I want to say that I like the idea about a commercial for JB. But I don’t think the video was very good. It was way to fast with all the information. Sometimes less is more. By nice girl in the video :o)

    I agree. This is an excellent video especially for people that have no knowledge of the benifits of jailbreaking but it needs to be just a bit slower

    • Johan

      Yeap…agree with you…a little bit slower.

    • Well, people won’t watch a long video…thats what the pause button is for

  • jb

    what is the app that boost wifi range? i want to get that tweak!

  • Frank

    Yes needs to be slowed a bit

  • Thanks to jb’ing I can replicate the home button functionality (mine’s become unresponsive) through activator.

    Main reason i jailbroke, was because Jail is not a nice place and now, i can use my iphone as a car, and ride around in style. I use it as a plate to eat food from. I smoke it after dinner like a cigar. I use it as a frizby when playing with my dog. I use it to start a fire when i am cold. I use it as a knife to cut cheese and steak. I even use it to store water for drinking. but best of all, if i stand on it, i can use it as a hoverboard.
    Oh and lets not forget, by owning an iphone, my every step is mapped on a massive apple server.
