What is Jailbreaking?
Jailbreaking is the process of removing restrictions in iOS, and allow root access to the iOS file system so that it can run software that has not been approved by Apple. It allows users to install jailbreak apps, tweaks and themes from Cydia to customize the look and feel of their device, and also enhance the functionality.
Over the last few years, the jailbreak community has released a number of jailbreak tools to jailbreak the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for each iOS firmware file.
This page has the most up-to-date information on the latest jailbreak tools that should be used to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch depending on the version of iOS running on it.
To ensure that you use the correct jailbreak tool, please check the current iOS version running on your iOS device (Settings –> General –> About –> Version).
