Questions tagged [jailbreak]

Jailbreaking an iOS device is the process of taking away the restrictions Apple places on their devices giving the user root access, access to the raw file-system, and the ability to run software not signed by Apple. Most jailbreaks include Cydia, which is the jailbreak equivalent of the App Store.
