Is Jailbreaking Legal And What Are The Benefits Of Jailbreaking

Why Should I Jailbreak My iPhone-iPod-iPad And Is It Legel - What Are The Benefits Of Jailbreaking

jailbreaking with cydia

The most asked question every where on the internet is about jailbreaking iPhone. New iPhone owners ask various questions concerning the legal issues of jailbreak and unlock and the after jailbreak performance issues. Most commonly asked question is there any reason to jailbreak an iPhone. We have tried to gather as much as information we could to make the new iPhone owners relax that jailbreaking an iPhone magnifies the iPhone experience that people had earlier.

Q) What do you mean by jailbreak ?
A) Jailbreaking is a method of gaining root level/supreme access to your Apple device so that you can run custom 3rd party applications which are not approved by Apple. Jailbreaking is similar to rooting of Android but is much more complex and dynamic in nature. There are many benefits of jailbreaking iPhone iPad and iPod so that you may use various tweaks and applications and themes that changes the entire UI experience of using an Apple product.


There are two types of jailbreak

  1. Tethered Jailbreak :   A tethered jailbreak requires that the device be connected to a computer each time it needs to be booted. A tethered jailbreak is one which requires you to connect your iPhone, iPod, iPad to the computer every time your device is restarted/rebooted/battery drained and not booting up after pluggin in your device to the power. A tethered jailbreak is usually done immediately after a new software update is done on apple device. Tethered jailbreak is for the time being and can be fixed once untethered jailbreak is released. This usually takes some time and that's the reason why people for a tethered jailbreak as its hard to stay away from jailbreak tools.

    So if your device is on tethered jailbreak, it won't start and boot automatically, instead it will get stuck in apple boot logo and spinning wheel. This is Normal and is supposed to happen in tethered jailbreak. 

  2. Untethered Jailbreak :  An untethered jailbreak allows the device to be powered without computer assistance. It usually takes more time for an untethered jailbreak to release.


Q) Is Jailbreaking Legal ?
A) Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, jailbreaking iPhones is legal. According to Prof.Tim Wu of Columbia Law School "Jailbreaking is legal, ethical and just plain fun." So, yeah Jailbreaking is absolutely legel :)

Q) Is Jailbreaking Safe ?
A) Jailbreaking is method by which the users gain root level access to their iOS devices. Jailbreaking tools like redsn0w, sn0wbreeze, limera1n, Blackra1n, greenp0ison, absinthe and corona are completely safe tools created by well reputed developers. Jailbreaking is safe until and unless the user himself modifies the files at root level. Apart from the jailbreak tools that developers make, they involve themselves in immense research to makes sure the users are safe from any kind of danger. Bottom line is, jailbreaking is safe if you are using tools from trusted source.

Q) Is Jailbreaking Free ?
A) Yes Jailbreaking is absolutely free. You should always rely on trusted jailbreak tools like



Q) How Can I jailbreak ?
A) Yet another most asked question. A new iOS device user gets confused with the tools and firmwares available.

Apple Says The New iPad's Continuous Charging Is Normal

Michael Tchao Explains The Design Of The New iPad's Battery

apple the new ipad3 continuous charging problem


Last week we discussed about the New iPad's continuous charging problem. Many iPad 3 owners observed that the new iPad's battery goes on charging and shows incorrect battery levels when charging. Things got serious when Display Mate president Dr. Raymond confirmed after performing some tests on The New iPad that it take another full hour to get fully charged. 

ios 5.1 battery issues

Michael Tchao, Vice President of iPad product marketing spoke with AllThingsD and clarified the iPad's  continuous charging issue. Here is what he said:
"Apple does in fact display the iPad (and iPhone and iPod Touch) as 100 percent charged just before a device reaches a completely charged state. At that point, it will continue charging to 100 percent, then discharge a bit and charge back up to 100 percent, repeating that process until the device is unplugged. Doing so allows devices to maintain an optimum charge. That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like. It’s a great feature that’s always been in iOS.”
According to Tchao, regardless of when you unplug the iPad during the charge- discharge cycle, the new iPad 3 will still give a full 10hours backup as promised by Apple. Apple's battery percentage display is simplified so that users are not confused by the constant cycle of charging and discharging while a device is plugged in. But Apple's approach allows all of its iOS devices to maximize their potential battery life.

The New iPad 3 Shows Incorrect battery Levels While Charging

The New iPad Continues Charging Even After It Hits 100 %

the new ipad battery issues

This report comes from the President of DisplayMate, Dr. Raymond Soneira. According to Dr. Raymond, he conducted some tests on the revolutionary new iPad to check the retina display. His tests provided a comparison of the new iPad's display with the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4.

apple new ipad 3 battery problem


While running some tests on the new iPad's battery, Soneira observed that batteries do not actually reach full charge when 100% is shown, and takes up to an extra hour of charging is required before reaching full capacity.  Soneira found that the iPad continued to draw 10 watts of electricity for two hours after indicating 100% charge, then began to reduce power for an additional ten minutes until a precipitous decline in power draw signaled the termination of the charging cycle.

Following is the explanation Dr. Soneira gave for The New iPad's Battery Issue :

The charge indicator on all mobile devices is based on a mathematical model of the charge rates, discharge rates, and recent discharge history of the battery. It uses this information to estimate how much running time is left. It’s actually rather difficult to do because most batteries degrade slowly as they discharge and then tend to surprise with a precipitous decline near the end.
So there is something wrong with the battery charge mathematical model on the iPad. It should not say 100% until it stops recharging and goes from the full recharging rate of about 10 watts to a trickle charging rate of about 1 watt. Otherwise the user will not get the maximum running time that the iPad is capable of delivering, which is listed in my article.
Ray Soneira
President of DisplayMate Technologies Corporation
There has not been any official announcement from Apple regarding the battery issues yet but hopefully it will be fixed with a software upgrade.

Apple Launched the new iPad on March 16 and sold over 3 million units in 3 days. This according to Apple was the strongest iPad launch ever.
