The Development Team of iPhone now offers the latest jailbreak tool for iOS 6 applicable to your iPhone 4, iPod Touch, and iPhone 3GS. The tool also automatically installs the Cydia app store. This is a faster, reliable and easier jailbreak tool for iOS 6.
Few days after the release of the iOS 6 of Apple, the iPhone Development Team also released the iOS jailbreak for the A4 devices. There was another update released wherein the process had been made simpler.
Although there had been a delay with the iOS jailbreak intended for iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, users can still use older jailbreaking devices that can be upgraded to iOS 6 to jailbreak these devices minus the need for a terminal or even a command line for Cydia installation. This process is still a tethered jailbreak wherein users are restricted from restarting their iPhone when it is not connected to a computer.
Jailbreaking an iPod Touch or an iPhone lets its users run apps or even tweaks that are not available in the Apple App Store. There are also apps that were not approved by Apple and are thus marketed by Cydia. Jailbreaking also makes it possible to customize the look of an iPhone and run apps that are not exclusively provided by Apple. Also, you can run your phone minus the restriction from your carrier provider.
Generally, jailbreaking is legal although the warranty will be voided when changing the original features and settings of the phone from how Apple designed it. This is not actually an issue to most users since the process is completely reversible and you can simply restore the settings after you decided that you are no longer happy with the features offered from jailbreaking your phone.
