Thanks for the tip Pegi

I agree, would not do it also but I know lots of people do just for the sake of installing all sorts of stuff on it. There are some real geeks out there. It is fun to try ....but expensive if you stuff it up.

I've done it before and would do it again except for 2 reasons 1) my current iPhone is a work phone and 2) I haven't seen any jailbreaks for the current version of iOS.

Haven't they cracked iOS 5 yet? Wow I am surprised that the software gurus out there haven't found a loop hole in the system yet.

There is a Jailbreak for 5.1 but it's only a tethered jailbreak. Redsn0w is nearly there in finding an untethered Jailbreak for 5.1.

I know all this because I just Jailbroke a work iPad... It was interesting to do. But I wouldn't do it to my own devices.
