Is there anywhere I can ship or take my iPhone to have it professionally jailbroken?

    I don't have the skill or time to try and do it myself and I want it done. It seems like I'm missing out on so much without it.

    It's really not THAT hard. Because even if you get someone else to do it, you will still not have that knowledge when the next update comes out, so will have to get someone else to help you again...

    Why exactly do you want to jailbreak the phone? theming, ssh access, something else?

    There are people on Craigslist that can do it for you.

    in about 2 minutes of reading instruction plus the five minutes it takes to jailbreak I dont think it is worth it to pay someone to do it for you

    no offense meant by this man, but if you cant follow a program like quickpwn which tells you what to do, mayb you shouldnt be using anything tech related at all.

    What city do you live in? Surely there's a MacRumors user in your city that is willing to unnecessarily take your money to "professionally" jailbreak your phone.

    I call first dibs if he lives near Bakersfield, CA.

    1. I haven't tried. 2. I don't intend to waste my time doing so.


    Thank you to all the people who replied with decent answers.

    If you did "try" youd be done in 10 minutes. Hardly a waste by pretty much anyones standards.

    Atleast download the programme first before you believe that you need a professional to do it, it's almost as easy as installing itunes.

    What's wrong mate? Are you too stubborn to do it or something?

    also, there is no such thing as a professional jailbreak, its 100% homebrew

    Well with QuickPwn you don't need to! It's all on screen instructions that tells you what to do, when it needs to be done!

    Yeah, it takes less time to jailbreak, than to sync your music, and backup..

    So let me get this straight, you don't have the time to do a jailbreak that takes less than 10 minutes, but you have time to post a thread on this forum and reply to the posts? Riiiiiiggggghhhhttt.

    I didn't/don't find replying in this forum to be a waste of time. I don't know how long that will last with some of you...

    Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.

    seriously. u'd rather spend time and money (gas) to have some stranger (no offense to the good ones) jailbreak your phone?

    honestly, it's ridiculously easy. it TELLS U STEP BY STEP. u don't even really need to read anything outside of where to find the download. that's the beauty of the program. i'm never responding to ridiculous posts like this again....;)

    iDanielle I like you thought that jailbreaking my iphone was way over my head but trust me its not. Go here:

    http://sleepers.net/news/2008/08/29/quickpwn-osx-guide/

    and follow the directions. Its real easy. I jailbroke both my first gen and my 3G over the weekend and its great.

    PS Guide is for windows if your on a MAC you will have download version 1.1 of quickpwn for it to work.
