jailbreaking the iPhone


I am curious about this.

From what I read this is a reasonably simple and low risk thing.

I have no super-tech-geek needs. Just want to deal with a couple of super-annoying aspects of the phone (like unwanted update notifications to disappear and to remove some apps the iceholes refuse to let me get rid of).

I know it sounds a bit OCD for such relatively minor things but they really do bug the **** out of me.

Any experience with this? Worth doing? Risk of bricking?

Not much risk of bricking as it's software, not firmware. I've JB'd every one I've had for the past 6 years. Follow the guide for your particular model.

Only issue is to make sure you turn off automatic updates from your carrier. It will un-jailbreak your phone.
