So jailbreaking will not harm your iphone? I don't want to jailbreak my iPhone4 because I'm afraid that it might damage my phone.

If you have no idea what you're doing, sometimes it's best not to do it. I have heard of cases where people have run into issues (like bricking their iPhone). But some people have no problems.

Jailbreaking would not be as popular as it is if it were simply a way to damage your phone. :rolleyes:

Maybe you should do a little more research before you take the plunge.

What firmware are you on? If you're on the new 4.3.4 I would stay away because the JB is tethered and a newbie doesn't want to mess with that. However, if you're on 4.3.3 or below, you can enjoy a jailbreak untethered. :)

The best part is, if you don't like the JB, you can get rid of it by restoring with iTunes.

Don't jailbreak until you've done research on it, PLEEEAAASSSSEE?

You'll be back her in a half hour asking us what you did wrong and thinking you bricked your phone.

It's just best that beginners at it make sure that they positively know what they are doing before they do it.

I have absolutely no idea what you're saying in the first half of your post. The iPhone is available on many carriers around the world and not just ATT/Verizon. I am in Canada on the Telus network.

Actually you should have said there are other countries in the world too.. Lol


Anyways to op. There is no way to harm ur iPhone. Also ppl talking about a brick. It's impossible to brick an iPhone technically. Restore is always the solution.

Personally I dont opt to jailbreak as currently my iphone 4 does everything I want and more.

I have done my homework on jail breaking and am confident I could jailbreak my handset, and know of remedies if something glitched.

Some say apple just should allow the user open access.

Well here's a word of caution to those posters.

Nokia did try this type of open source phone with the Nokia n900.
The owner had three repositories to download programmers from.

One safe and tested.
One with stable'ish.
One for developers.

Well you can imagine what the maemo.org forums community boards were littered with............. yup....... 'help me'....... threads.

Its down to choice and thats the beauty of these forums when something goes wrong or you need advice............some experienced forum members with a wealth of knowledge and patience !

There should have at least been a developer program in place so that newbies couldn't ruin their phones by accident. Not necessarily a paid dev program like Apple but something where you at least have to go through the trouble of registering to access the dev content.
