iOS 5 Jailbreak – Still Worth the Trouble?

Today, Dev-team released Redsn0w zero. 9. 8b1, capable of jailbreaking the latest Apple operating system for mobile devices, iOS 5 (beta).

This is a connected jailbreak which means that you need to hook up your device to a computer and run Redsn0w in order to achieve ‘jailbreak mode’ on it. iOS 10 Jailbreak

With all these improvements added to iOS5, is still worthwhile to jailbreak your device?

I used to jailbreak my iPhone in the past in order to obtain higher customization level for it, get access to adjustments that were not available in the official iOS, tweaks that can improve my iDevice experience after all. 

Many of these ‘improvements’ already are available with iOS 5, still few are missing.

In my view, iOS 5 is a great step forward for Apple, which seems to have learned from the jailbreak community in the benefit for their clients. Want that many companies would do the same (e. g. Sony).

Some of the features that helped Apple obtaining this step forward are:

Unified warns
Phone-to-Phone messaging
Newspaper/Magazine monthly subscriptions
Advanced reminder system
System-wide Twitter integration
Quick-camera gain access to
Photo editing tools
Tabbed browsing
Reader view
Reach text email
PC-free setup/updates
Wi-fi sync
Few of the today’s mobile working systems are coming with so many features making iOS one of the better mobile working system currently available.

Still, the question remains… is the jailbreak still necessary?

Various users will say “YES”, jailbreak is a ‘must have’, probably because they are unaware of what the new iOS can do, some can have favorite applications which can be not available in the new iOS (e. g. BiteSMS), but many will stay away from jailbreak from now on because almost all of the characteristics that they jailbreaked for are now part of the OPERATING-SYSTEM.

Before, jailbreaking was considered illegal, voiding your device warranty.

Few years later it all become legal as long as you are not installing as well as using paid applications for free by using the jailbreak tools.

Today, jailbreak means more allowing non-signed applications to perform on your device (Apple require that every application that works on your iDevice to be signed with a certificate, this way they have an improved control over their device and the applications that runs on it), it became a cult.

We still have to wait until the final version of iOS 5 is released, but if you take a look at the beta version, iOS incorporated features that no other mobile operating-system can be proud of, making iOS 5 one of the better lets out that Apple come away with.
