I had someone email me this week about jailbreaking their iphone to have some cute fonts, and then a few days later I saw this pic from @laurenk611 on instagram ( great job @laurenk611 ! I love all the pics you have been posting!) and everyone was commenting wanting to know how she did this:
Her answer was jailbreaking and I know most of you don't really understand that concept. A few things to know:
- It is risky. I am always hesitant to encourage people to do it because I am not sure they will have the knowledge to get themselves out of any bind that might occur, and I don't want to be blamed for anything that goes wrong.
- It does void the Apple Warranty.
- I have done it several times, and my overall opinion is that yes it is fun, and yes it does take some work/time/maintenance, which is why I am not jailbroken now. I do not think I have the time to dedicate to fixing it should something go wrong, but I do have an old iphone that I plan to jailbreak when I get the chance.
So why Jailbreak?
The answer would be different for everyone, but for me the number one reason I would do it, is because I want an app that will close down all open apps for me at once, so that I don't have to double click the home key and close them out one by one.
Other reasons might be to change the look like you see above.
