Why JailbreakMe is Worth Your Time

Why JailbreakMe is Worth Your Time
 
Buy JailbreakMe from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Earlier today we reported on a revolutionary new way to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or other iOS 4.0.1 device. JailbreakMe is the world's first browser-based jailbreaking utility. No messing around with complicated downloads or long, involved processes. You just visit the website and let it take things from there. (Please note that the JailbreakMe servers are taking a pounding right now.) No fuss, no muss.

So why should you invest in jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad? For one thing, you'll gain access to the Cydia app market, which is loaded with all manner of awesome apps that you can't get on the App Store. For example, there's dTunes, a torrenting app that allows you to download on the go, even over 3G. Then there is Cylay, a security app that allows you to keep your phone safe even without MobileMe.

One of the most useful Cydia apps is SBSettings, which is essentially a widget that gives you direct, on-screen control of settings like brightneess, WiFi, 3G, etc. For simple elegance, QuickLock can't be beat. It allows you to make your gadget sleep with one touch.

If you want to take the plunge and jailbreak your iGadget, visit the JailbreakMe website. This is fully reversible, but it does void the warranty.

Update:
You also can now use FaceTime over 3G on your jailbroken iPhone 4.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
