I've never jailbroken any of my iPhones at all. is it a hard process? It looks complicated. I guess you can do similar things with a jailbroken iPhone as you can with an rooted Android device, is that about right?
(sorry, complete noob at this).

It's not difficult... Alli K. here on iMore will have full details and instructions when it's ready for prime-time. And it does allow for things similar to rooting a droid.Keith - iMore Moderator - The Mobile Nations/iMore Forum Rules

And no it's not hard at all. I jailbroke my iPhone 4 literally with one click using absinthe

Seriously though, thanks all for the replies. Rooting an Android is reasonably simple; i've done it for Mrs HRD's Galaxy S2 on a number of occasions.
On an Android device, once you root it you get a yellow warning triangle upon boot to show it's been rooted (although this can be removed if you're careful). Are there similar signs that an iOS device has been jailbroken or does it look 'stock' unless tweaked please?
I seem to remember that waaaay back in my iPhone 2 or 3 days that you needed to change some kind of system password once you jailbroke an iPhone as there was a universal password that could be used to gain unauthorised entry to the device from an outside source otherwise. Is that the case or have I been woefully misinformed please?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the questions.

im sorry but you guys are foolish
when the devs, chpwn and musclenerd and iconic say that they are jailbroken, they literally mean that they (each individual one) are jailbroken... not ios6 or the iphone 5, or the a6 chip or whatever.
its just these people injecting cydia into thier devices because they have developer accounts.
in terms of a jailbreak it means LESS THAN NOTHING when mr grant paul announces that he is jailbroken.
so seriously, eveyone needs to chill out with the iphone 5 being jailbroken.....
also i hate grant paul

I went to the Apple store recently to replace a cable, and I didn't want to unjailbreak, so I had to turn off or hide the more obvious tweaks, like the animated wallpaper, 5-icon dock, custom carrier name, SBSettings, etc. Not that it should matter when it's a cable, but they did check the numbers in settings and I didn't want any problems with the warranty.iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 2
