The act of jail-breaking does...?
When you jailbreak your iPhone, what actually are you doing to the phone in the process? I.e. What does (for example) Spirit actually do to your iPhone OS apart from copying Cydia onto your iPhone? It obviously does something to the file system that lets you SSH into it, so what exactly is going on?

All the process of jailbreaking does is open up that ability to access the root of the operating system. Remember Apple keeps a closed environment - this opens it up. Kinda like when you go to the fair and they sell those sealed ecologies with a single plant and a brine shrimp...it will last forever, but it gets boring. That's Apple. Jailbreak puts in a port so that you can add a goldfish, without losing your plant or brine shrimp - or any water.
