Advantages and Disadvantages

There are advantages and disadvantages of iPhone Jailbreaking.

Advantages

  • Customize your iPhone’s icons, wallpaper, and even volume controls after jailbreaking it. This allows the user to completely customize their iPhone.
  • Install unauthorized third-party apps from various websites. In general, third-party apps have more features than App store stock apps.
  • Jailbreaking opens up the iOS file system to apps. Jailbroken iPhones can use SSH clients to remotely access their devices in order to repair corrupted files or install third-party applications.
  • Install new features without updating the firmware version

Disadvantages

  • Jailbreak void your iPhone warranty – Apple does not accept unauthorized modification on iPhone and your device’s warranty will be voided if you jailbreak it. Apple may also refuse to repair your iOS device.

Solution – You can restore your iPhone to the latest iOS version.

  • Slowness – Third-party apps are untrustworthy. Installing a faulty unauthorized app may cause system instability and reduce the overall smoothness of the iOS UI.

Solution – Don’t use so many tweaks and themes, if you need to test more uninstall previously installed themes. Only install themes from official repos such as bigboss repo, Dynastic repo and Packix repo. If you use, repo extraction method, it doesn’t slow your device / no system access.

  • Some banking and security apps may not work – Banking apps, some online videogames (Pokemon Go, Mario Kart Tour), and other privacy-focused apps that rely on security will include algorithms that detect and prevent jailbroken users from accessing the app.

Solution – Use Jailbreak detection bypass tweak

  • Security issues – Potential security flaws, bugs, or third-party applications could compromise your device or jeopardize your data. A jailbroken device’s lack of security updates is also a risk, as your device becomes vulnerable to malicious exploits used by nefarious hackers.

Solution – Only install themes, tweaks apps from trusted repos such as BigBoss Repo, Karen’s Repo, ModMyi Repo, iForce Repo to your iPhone

  • Battery drain issues / reducing battery life – The more tweaks you install that run in the background (most of them do), the faster your battery will drain. Also, there are poorly programmed tweaks and pirated tweaks that can cause your phone’s battery to drain much faster than usual.

Solution – Install battery-centric jailbreak tweaks that boost performance, improve the user interface, and make battery monitoring easier. EnableBatteryPercent, LPM Enabler, DrainCheck are some of them.

Unlock your Sim

Normally, your iPhone is locked to your carrier. The process of removing network restrictions from an iPhone is known as unlocking. That means once you unlock your Sim, you can use any SIM card. 

Unlocking an iPhone requires a jailbreak. In the early days, popular unlock jailbreak tools included UltraSn0w and BlackSn0w for older iPhones. Unfortunately, these tools do not work with the most recent iOS versions or device models.

Ultrasn0w

Ultrasn0w is a free unlocking utility. Only jailbroken iPhones with Cydia can use Ultrasn0w SIM unlock. Unfortunately, it does not provide a permanent unlock, but it will suffice when other unlock options are unavailable. Ultrasn0w can effectively unlock all iPhone 3GS and 3G models, as well as relevant iOS firmware and basebands. This method is still available for older iPhone models, up to and including the iPhone 4.

BlackSn0w
