Many among you might have heard about the process called “Jailbreaking”. It has been around for quite some time and is being used on most of Apple’s iOS devices. Basically, it is the process where one roots the device to give free access to its firmware. This then allows users to apply any modifications or tweaks and to get access to the famous “Cydia” app. Which allows users to download thousands of apps for free.
To get started right away, you’ll firstly need to download the correct tools. Visit: Jailbreak Tools
(These tools will work for all iPhones, Apple TVs, iPods and iPads!)
Before making any connection between computer and handset you should first download the jailbreak tools above. To make the download faster the file comes in a format that is compressed and therefore not usable until it has been unpacked. It is like going on holiday and wanting to change your outfit without first opening the baggage.
To have the file in a format that is usable you only have to right click the icon on your desktop and choose ‘extract all’. This take up very little time, so you can easily move to the next step which is to click twice on the extracted icon to make it run.
Checking If You Have The Correct Download
If you are using windows XP or 7 be sure to run as an administrator by using the right mouse button and choosing that option instead of having to click twice. You will shortly be asked to connect the handset so that you can continue with the process, you should do as requested. Once you have done so the next step is to put the device into a mode known as DFU. This allows the program access what would have otherwise been ignored or denied.
You will of course be familiar with the power button which you should now press and continue to do so for three seconds, before adding another finger to the button for home. After 10 seconds you can release the power button only. You can remove pressure altogether from your devices home button once you see that the computer is preparing to open your device.
From the options you are asked to choose from include Cydia as one of the things you wish to be installed at the same time. This is the application that will give you the access you want to further providers of alternative applications. Once the next button has been pressed the computer will finish up on its own once it has rebooted after around just five minutes.
Once the reboot has taken place the handset is ready to use so all that is left for you to do is browse and choose from all your new options in Cydia.
