iPhone "jailbreak or not to jailbreak?"
That's the question that haunts many users struggling with the infamous iPhone, to unlock (jailbreak) or not?
What are actually the advantages and disadvantages of this choice?
I do not want to dwell here in explaining what consti operation jailbreak, but I want to list only briefly, from my point of view, the advantages and disadvantages of such a choice.
- Add Cydia (an alternative to the App store)
- Access to the device via SSH (use the iPhone as a hard disk into which to load files via ssh fact)
- SBSettings (Cydia) that sets up quick menu for frequently used functions (on / off services such as wifi, bluetooth, 3G, etc ...)
- Ability to synchronize applications (IPA) downloaded from the internet via iTunes (this is legal, then everyone is choosing to operate more or less legally with your device)
- Clear the blockage of the data transfer via bluetooth to the upcoming release of iBlueNove (ex iBluetooth) of MeDevil
- Insert a firewall (blacklist) for the management of calls / sms / mms incoming
- Add useful features to native applications such as SMS Helper (displays a counter of characters entered in the process of writing a SMS)
- Change the 'APN of your phone provider not to run in unwanted charges on its rechargeable
- For 3Gs with new iBoot, inability to restart the iPhone without having to jailbreak again using blackra1n
- Reduction in battery performance (not high if you use wisely the additional services such as SSH, etc ...)
- I can not think of much more ...
You would add something else to the list?
