Advantages and Disadvantages of Jailbreak

Advantages and Disadvantages of Jailbreak

The benefits are obvious. A jailbroken iPhone is able to provide much more functionality than the standard one. Here are some of the jailbreak benefits:

  • The ability to unlock the network;
  • The possibility of modifying the system files;
  • The ability to install applications rejected by Apple and other applications developed by third-party companies via Cydia;
  • Able to install any software for free;
  • Possible customization for a device that have installed previous versions of iOS;
  • Bluetooth transfer between iPhone and other devices (iPhone, iPod, PC, … any device that has Bluetooth)



Disadvantages are little. The jailbreak process is completely reversible by a simple restore in iTunes. The only real disadvantage can occur when you jailbreak your iPhone, the process crashes and sometimes you are forced to resume it or do a restore.

  • The possibility of losing the warranty. However, by a simple restore process in iTunes, bring the phone to its original shape;
  • Impairing the functionality, for many applications installed on Cydia. Applies when you abuse the installing software;
