Edited by Maria
If you have at least an iPod, iPad, iPhone or an Apple TV, then you may have heard the word "jailbreak" or "jailbreaking". This is not what you literally think it is, because for Apple products, jailbreaking is a process of eliminating Apple's restrictions on their iOS operating system in order to take advantage of privileged access. A jailbroken iOS device can still use the App Store, iTunes and other functions normally. It allows users to fully customize the way the Apple device functions, how it looks and a whole lot more.
Disclaimer: Jailbreaking voids your Apple warranty. The company will not be responsible anymore if you break it. Jailbreaking can also cause performance issues on the device, depending on the situation.
If you have already decided to jailbreak your Apple device, follow the steps below. We will be using a software called Evasi0n as our example.
Before we proceed, please be reminded of the following:
- 1If you have iTunes installed on your computer, back up your Apple device.You may use Apple's iCloud service to easily do so.Advertisement
- 2Disable your device's pass-code temporarily.Advertisement
- 3Do not use iTunes or your Apple device while Evasi0n is running.
- 2Download the Evasi0n software at http://evasi0n.com.Run it and click "Jailbreak".
- 3Jailbreaking will take about five minutes to finish.In the middle of said process, it will request that you unlock the device and hit the Jailbreak shortcut on your device's screen.
- 6This process will take a while, so sit back and relax.

User should also avoid all kinds of tasks that are related to iTunes and iOS, until the evasion has finished the jailbreak process. In an event that the procedure has been stuck at a certain point, user could restart the program, as well as reboot the gadget (to do this, user could hold down the Home and Power options until the device shuts down), and then rerun the procedure. In case there is an error on the OS X 10.8 implying that the evasion can't be unlocked, what the user has to do is right-click or control-click the app and then on the context menu, user should select the option 'Open'. On the succeeding dialogue box, user must also select the option 'Open'. To know the jailbreak process, iOS users could search and watch tutorial videos.
