An Iphone 3g Jailbreak - What Is It?

So what is the iPhone 3g jailbreak? Basically what that does is remove that restrictions as set by Apple at the time the phone is made. So let's get into the pros and cons of the 3g jailbreak process.

Now the iPhone has virtually revolutionized the mobile industry. With it's touch screen technology and WiFi capabilities, the iPhone has been the leader since its inception. The one downfall that people found with the iPhone is being restricted to only the applications Apple allows (which of course is usually there apps!). With the iPhone 3g jailbreak, those restrictions are removed allowing you to install 3rd party applications (apps) that Apple would normally not allow. It also should allow you the ability to use the iPhone with other carriers (once the phone is jailbroken, then it's unlocked - that's how you can use it with other carriers....that's another article!).

One of the biggest questions out there though is whether or not the warranty is still intact if you decide to use the iPhone 3g jailbreak process. There's some gray area here, but as I understand it, it works like this -

  • If there is an issue with the firmware (this is what's changed during the jailbreak process), software or any other part of the "technical guts" of the phone, then yes the warranty will usually NOT be honored by Apple.
  • However if there is some physical problem with your phone (say it gets run over by a 20 ton truck), then the warranty should still be intact. The issue wasn't because of an application or a change in the firmware, it was because the phone was destroyed!

The other biggest question is just how difficult jailbreaking your iPhone can be. Well in the beginning you needed to by a few SAT points short of a genius! But now there's an application that you can run (it's small) that actually does the work for you. Basically you run it from your iPhone 3g and the jailbreak process will begin automatically. The hardest part? In my opinion is trying to find a good program that actually works!!

There is on tip that I want to give you. Actually it's the BIGGEST t tip that I can give you. When you want to use the iPhone 3g jailbreak, just make sure to BACK UP your phone! Whatever you want to save - pictures, videos, phone numbers, etc. You have to remember that we are still dealing with technology and anything can happen. As I always say -- better safe than sorry!

The bottom line is that the iPhone 3g jailbreak is now a pretty simple and safe process that iPhone owners can use to unlock the full capability of their iPhones. I will leave you with this... you OWN your phone, right? Take control of it!

There's not a whole lot to it! The iPhone3g Jailbreak is safe and easy! And most of all, you can start using the FULL potential of your iPhone!!
