“Jailbreaking” or just “Jailbreak” is a pop culture term that basically means that you can remove the restrictions that apple has put on the devices OS (operating system). It does not involve hardware hacking, and is relatively simple.
The most important thing to do first is to BACK UP YOUR iPAD! If something goes wrong you will have wished you did. Remember hindsight is 2020 right?
OK in order to JailBreak your device you need some software. From waht we’ve seen with our friends, and what we’ve read the best application for the job is Spirit. Spirit works on the iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. (be sure to check requirements of versions on their website http://spiritjb.com/) The software is available for Windows, Mac, & even Linux. The software is free, but if you are happy be sure to make a donation so they will continue to make changes to the software.
OK so now that we know how, lets look at why? Why would you want to JailBreak your iPad? By far the worst feature of the iPad or iPhone is it’s inability to multitask. Multitasking is the act of running one or more application at the same time. An example of multitasking would be browsing the web while listening to music. I can’t beleive that you can do this, to me that is just insane. Many people feel the same way, and that’s why they run this “hack” or “modification”.
This same thing can be done if you have an iPhone, just a note.
Thanks for reading, and happy hacking.
