    Think of jailbreaking as taking down any walls or protections on your iphone. When you jailbreak it you are basically limitless as to what you can do with your phone. I have seen jailbroken ipods and the guy i knew that did it had games like pokemon and supermario that were from the gameboy. Also, he had motion wallpapers and creative icons that would never be seen on a restricted iphone.

    I am not sure as to what the legality of it is, but I feel as if there must be some consequences to it as there are apps that are free on a jailbroken iphone that are  not normally free through the itunes store.

    Here is some alternative info on jailbreaking http://cellphones.about.com/od/glossary … ak_faq.htm

    Okay, all Jailbreaking is, is installing an app called cydia onto your iDevice. Now, what cydia does is opens up all of your possibilities that apple restrain from you. For example, cydia can let you have more than four icons in the dock (the apps at the bottom of the screen of an iphone) or let you scroll them. It can let you have more than four apps in a row or five columns of apps in the springboard. Another one is letting you have more than 12 apps in a folder. Imagine everything you always wanted but apple wouldn't put on their system: that's in cydia
