    In order to do what?

    You can already do anything on a MBP.

    Apple's computers are "free roaming" machines as far as software goes. As far as I know there isn't anything you can do to "jailbreak" the machine. :confused:

    If one does not understand the concept of jailbreaking, one should not do it.

    jailbreaking means that you can now install whatever you want on a closed system. In essence you have root access where you're not supposed to have it. A Mac is just a computer, you have full permission to do anything on it, so there's no need to jailbreak it... duh.

    the closest thing to "jailbreaking" would be to use the sudo command... so just go get a book and learn how to use sudo.

    although I would prefer it if the under educated would be B&.
