Introduction: Why You Might Want to Jailbreak Your iPhone

Jailbreaking your iPhone can give you the freedom to customize your device in ways that Apple doesn’t allow. It opens up a whole new world of apps and tweaks that can make your iPhone even more awesome than it already is.

But jailbreaking is not for everyone. It can be a complicated process, and it can void your warranty. Before you jailbreak, it’s important to understand what you’re doing and why you want to do it.

This guide will walk you through the pros and cons of jailbreaking, as well as the different ways you can do it. By the end, you should have a good idea of whether or not jailbreaking is right for you.

Step One: Back Up Your iPhone

Jailbreaking your iPhone is a great way to customize and improve your experience with the device. However, before you jailbreak your iPhone, it’s important to back up your data in case anything goes wrong during the process.

There are two ways to back up your iPhone: through iTunes or iCloud. If you have a Mac, backing up through iTunes is easy – just plug in your phone and open up iTunes. If you don’t have a Mac, you can still back up through iTunes by following these instructions.

To back up through iCloud, go to Settings > iCloud > Backup & Storage. Make sure that “iCloud Backup” is turned on, and then tap “Back Up Now.”

Step Two: Download the Jailbreaking Software

Now that you’ve confirmed that your iPhone is compatible with the jailbreaking software, it’s time to download the software. Head to the jailbreaking website of your choice and look for a “Download” button. Once you’ve found it, click on it and wait for the file to download.

Once the file has downloaded, double-click on it to open it up. You should see a window that looks like this:

Click on the “Jailbreak” button in the middle of the window and wait for the software to do its thing. Once it’s done, you should see a message that says “Jailbreak complete!” Congratulations, your iPhone is now jailbroken!

Step Three: Connect Your iPhone to Your Computer

Now that you have your software downloaded and extracted, it’s time to connect your iPhone to your computer. Doing this is simple: just use the USB cable that came with your iPhone, and plug it into your computer’s USB port. Once the connection is made, open up the software you downloaded earlier.

Step Four: Run the Jailbreaking Software

Now that you have your iPhone all set up and ready to go, it’s time to run the jailbreaking software. This is a relatively simple process, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, make sure that you have the latest version of the software. There are always new versions being released, so it’s important to stay up to date. Second, make sure that you have enough free space on your iPhone. The jailbreaking process can take up a lot of space, so you’ll need to have at least a few gigabytes free. Finally, make sure that you have a good internet connection. The jailbreaking process can take awhile, and you don’t want it to be interrupted by a bad connection.

Once you’ve checked all of those things off your list, it’s time to run the software. Simply open it up and follow the instructions. The software will do most of the work for you, but it’s important to pay attention to what it’s doing. Once the process is done, your iPhone will be jailbroken!

Step Five: Wait for the Jailbreak to Complete

After you enter the command to jailbreak your iPhone, all you have to do is wait for it to complete. Depending on the speed of your computer and iPhone, this can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Once it’s done, your iPhone will reboot and you’ll see the Cydia app on your home screen!

Step Six: Install Cydia

Now that your iPhone is jailbroken, it’s time to install Cydia. This is the installer application that will let you add new applications to your jailbroken iPhone.

There are two ways to install Cydia: through SSH or through Installer.app. If you want to use Installer.app, you’ll first need to download and install the program onto your computer.

Once Installer.app is installed, open it and click on the “Sources” section. Add the following source: “http://cydia.hackulo.us/”. This will add the Hackulous repository to Installer.app.

Once the Hackulous repository has been added, click on it and then select the “Applications” tab. Browse through the applications and find “Cydia”. Install Cydia onto your iPhone and then exit Installer.app.

Step Seven: Customize Your iPhone

Now that your iPhone is jailbroken, you can customize it to better suit your needs. You can change the look of your home screen by downloading custom themes and wallpapers. You can also add new features to your device by installing jailbreak tweaks. If you’re not sure where to start, check out our list of the best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 10.

Step Eight: Stay Up to Date

Now that you have your iPhone jailbroken, it’s important to stay up to date on the latest software releases. New versions of iOS are often released with patched security vulnerabilities, so it’s important to keep your device up to date to ensure that it remains secure.

To stay up to date, simply launch the Cydia app and check for updates regularly. Cydia will automatically notify you when new updates are available, and all you need to do is tap “Install” to install the update. Once the update is installed, your device will be jailbroken on the newest version of iOS!
