iOS 9.3 Jailbreak
Today, Dev-team released Redsn0w 0.9.8b1, able to jailbreaking the latest Apple operating system for mobile devices, iOS 5 (beta).
This is a tethered jailbreak which means that you will have to connect your device into a computer and run Redsn0w to get 'jailbreak mode' on it.
With all these improvements combined with iOS5, is still worth to jailbreak your device?
I did before jailbreak my iPhone in the past in order to obtain higher customization level for this, gain access to settings that have been not available in the official iOS, tweaks that may improve my iDevice experience all things considered.
Many of these 'improvements' are already obtainable with iOS 5, still people are not missing.
In my opinion, iOS 5 is a superb step forward for Apple, which seems to have learned from the jailbreak community from the benefit of their clients. Wish that many companies would carry out the same (e.g. Sony).
Jailbreak iOS 9.3
Many of the features that helped Apple achieving this step forward are:
Advanced reminder system
System-wide Twitter integration
Photo editing tools
Reach text email
Very few of the today's mobile systems are coming with so many features making iOS one of the best mobile operating system currently available.
Still, the question remains...may be the jailbreak still a necessity?
Many users will say "YES", jailbreak can be a 'must have', probably because they are unacquainted with what the new iOS can do, some still may have favorite applications who are not available in the new iOS (e.g. BiteSMS), but a majority of will stay away from jailbreak from now on because most of the features that they jailbreaked for are now the main OS.
In the past, jailbreaking was considered illegal, voiding your device warranty.
Several years later it all become legal if you are not installing / using paid applications at no cost by using the jailbreak tools.
Today, jailbreak means not only allowing non-signed applications to run on your device (Apple require that many application that runs using your iDevice to be signed having a certificate, this way they've got a better control over their device and the applications that is run on it), it had been a cult.
We still need to wait until the final version of iOS 5 is released, but through a look at the beta version, iOS incorporated features that no other mobile operating system may be proud of, making iOS 5 one of the best releases that Apple come out with.
