To be honest, your going to have to try it and see for yourself. Take your time and read everything and go from there. I use google and search and look for the answers I need. I'm not a pro, but I follow directions very well. Not sure of the risk you speak of, but I've had some fun playing with mine. Most things are pretty easy, just try it. If you don't like restore back to normal and then you can go from there. Again, read everything careful and follow directions, you should be good. Have fun..
Risks? If you don't know anything you could mess up your phone.
Really? I find the iPhone much more slippery when jailbroken and easily pops out of pockets and hands because of it. Even with a tighter grip.1. There aren't any risks.
2. No one but you can determine the benefits.
You have already received answers, i.e., there are no risks and YOU are the only person who can determine the benefits. Asking what the benefits of jailbreaking are, is like asking what the benefits of installing an app on your phone are. jailbreaking allows you to install apps on your phone that are not available in the Apple App Store.I thought a forum was for answers not insults?
