This question has been on various websites, people asking whether to jailbreak or not. Is it worth it though? I really want to jailbreak my iPhone 4, I need the software now!
The iPhone 4 has nearly everything you want categories (storing over 2000 apps), multi-tasking (do more than 1 task), facetime (video calling), HD Video Recording and so on. Apple has added so many improvements to the software it is not required to jailbreak your iPhone 4. Unless you want to customize the theme, add third-party apps, plugins, tweaks, cracked apps (which I do not approve).
- Add third-party apps
- Theme Customization
- Add Plugins, Tweaks
- Access root, files, modify
- Install cracked apps
- Most apps do not work properly with your iPhone/firmware
- New iTunes software, cannot sync
- Sync is disallowed in iTunes
- If jailbreak messes up your iPhone, you got to restore everything on your iPhone. You can restore back to 3.1.3 or 4.0 if you have saved your SHSH blobs.
- Awaiting new jailbreak software
Once I receive my iPhone 4 I won’t jailbreak it, keep it original. I’ll keep posting jailbreaking tips using my iPod Touch 3G.
UnlockIphoneUsa.com is a website providing unlocks and jailbreaks to your iPhone, can unlock your iPhone even you have the latest firmware. They are selling $24.99 for the software to unlock our iPhones plus jailbreaking it. Everyone thinks these kind of sites are trusted and worth to buy, I don’t think so. I already experienced their service before and to be honest with you, it is very poor.
I paid them via PayPal, they sent me a link to view the unlocks and the jailbreaking methods. The page displays the current unlocks/jailbreaks including Blackra1n which is free to use, no need to pay unless you want to donate to the creator of the software. UnlockIphoneUsa.com is just redistributing their software and resell it for cash, that is a hoax. Why would you pay for a jailbreak when you can use it for free??? I am telling you to avoid all of these unlocking and jailbreaking websites, you shouldn’t be browsing them at all.
Few hours later that day I emailed their support and they did not reply to my emails, so I opened a dispute to get my funds back. First they asked me why did I opened a dispute, then onto “We provide good unlocks and jailbreaks, we won’t disappoint you.” I told them I want an immediate refund as the description on their site is not accurate enough, they are reselling the creators’ software without permission.
People behind these sites must be immature, they think they can get a way with this. But in the end customers will start complaining about their service and support, lacking of unlocks and jailbreaks.
If you are like me then you are doing the right thing. Open a dispute and get your money back. Never trust them.
