Jailbreaking your iPhone or iPod touch couldn’t be easier thanks to geohot. This jailbreak will work for iPhone 3G, 3GS, iPod Touch 1st 2nd & 3rd Gen. If your SIM Card is not legit, (ie. unlocked) do not attempt this.
I’m using an iPhone 3G for this guide so the steps depicted herein will be iPhone 3G.
“Jailbreaking is a process that allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to run unofficial code on their devices bypassing Apple‘s official distribution mechanism, the App Store. Once jailbroken, iPhone users are able to download many applications previously unavailable through the App Store via unofficial installers such as Cydia, Rock App, Icy, and Installer. Cydia is popular with users whilst Rock App has a small catalog of mainly paid apps. Icy and Installer are officially unsupported by their developers and rarely used. Cydia founder Jay Freeman estimates that 8.5% of all iPods and iPhones are jailbroken. A jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch is still able touse and update apps downloaded and purchased from Apple’s official App Store.”
