Untethered Jailbreak is the preferred jailbreak method because it requires no connection to your computer except for the 1st time that you jailbreak your device. You can reboot your device as many times as you like and your device will stay jailbroken. Even if your device loses power and you have to recharge it and turn it back on again, you will still have Cydia and your jailbreak status will stay active, without having to do any extra steps.
The new jailbreak software supports Windows, Mac, and Linux and it requires the following items:
- A few minutes of your time.
- A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64)
- Any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch
- A USB cable to connect the device to the computer
What is Jailbreak? Jailbreak is the process that allows iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users to gain root access to the command line of the iOS system, which will naturally remove any limitations imposed by Apple, and it will install Cydia application on the device.
In simpler terms jail breaking your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch enable you to download additional applications, extensions, and themes that are unavailable through the official App Store, but at the same time with your jailbroken device running iOS you can still use the App Store, iTunes, and other normal functions, such as making telephone calls and sending messages. Jailbreaking iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is safe, legal in the United States, and 100% reversible.
