As usual, there is an inherent risk in jailbreaking your ipod. Things could go wrong, possibly leaving your ipod/phone "bricked" (non-functional
). Please be aware of this fact, as neither I, nor the jailbreak teams are responsible for any damage done to your phone.
This jailbreak is (I think) in BETA stage.
ALSO know that this hack WILL VOID
your warranty with Apple. Please use this
if you want to check your support coverage (or ETA until warranty expires)
This is also a TETHERED hack. A description from wikipedia- ". A tethered jailbreak requires that the device be connected to a computer each time it needs to be booted; an untethered jailbreak allows the device to be powered without computer assistance. " If you are using an iPhone 3GS, however, an UNTETHERED jailbreak is available.
There is a Cydia app that allows a "semi-tethered
" jailbreak for iOS5, allowing your ipod to reboot without a computer, but all jailbroken apps and tweaks will NOT
function if phone is restarted.
ALSO from wikipedia, "Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, jailbreaking Apple devices is legal in the United States, although Apple has announced that the practice "can void the warranty"."
Also, just to put this out there: This instructable is meant for educational purposes, not for illegal activities. Please do not use these hacks for illegal purposes.
