    Hello I just purchased my first ipad 4th generation. My main question is if I jail break woulda be able to download apps from the USA ?
    I currently live in an Asian country and when I try to download apps from USA such as Netflix, magazines, etc. the iTunes section for my country won't allow it. If I do jailbreak, would I be able to download those? Also are they free? Sorry I'm a newbie and new to this.
    Any helpful comments would be appreciated

    You don't need a jailbreak for that. Simply create a second dummy account for iTunes and choose USA as the country. That will allow you to download the free apps from the App Store. If you want to purchase apps, buy US iTunes Gift Cards from eBay and redeem them to your dummy account.

    I have been watching this and just dying for it to happen. I can't wait to JB my i5 and get it back to normal. I have already upgraded my wife to 6.1 so when 6.1.1 drops she wont be stuck on 5.1.1 so I'm ready!
    can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

    I'm still on the fence if I should update to 6.1 and jb once it's available. I have my 4S on 5.1.1 and jb. It runs fine and not really seeing a reason to update.

    Then just make sure you save the 6.1 blobs and carry on

    I am so stoked I can JB my 6.1. I missed it when I upgraded, but the extra features made it a little worthwhile. However, now I can't wait to customize my screens again...

    Yes I've used my sisters USA account but I tried using my bank account from here. It's inconvenient to use her credit card information and make her pay for it. My point is, will jail breaking help me able download apps from USA store even though I'm overseas. Isn't jail breaking , getting free apps the whole point of it?

    Getting free apps (that otherwise cost
    money) is not the point. That's piracy and a verboten topic here.

    So what's the point of jail breaking, I still don't understand. From what I see from other posts, it seems like this is why they jail break, this is just my opinion.

    The point of jail breaking, is to be able to make tweaks to the phone that Apple doesn't allow you to do while stock. That list is too long to go into. Just Google it. Getting paid apps for free after a developer has spent so much time on them is a bit inconsiderate.

    I jailbreak because I like to customize my devices. I add themes, functionality, experimental ideas, helpful tweaks that make my daily tasks easier. Not to pirate apps, that is not ok.

    It's an interesting topic. I've never had a jailbroken phone before but after having a 'rooted' Android phone, I can see the appeal, hence me tearing my hair out in the other thread on here, getting my iPhone 5 ready to be jailbroken when Evasi0n arrives.

    I was always told, and this goes back to the dawn of the iPhone i'll admit, that being jailbroken opens the phone up to malicious external hacking due to a root password that is usually locked down now becoming open for an external third party to exploit. Now of course, I haven't got a clue if this is truth or just complete rubbish but security is definitely the number one reason I have held off jailbreaking so far.

    I was also told (again probably by a source that had no real knowledge himself) that as the apps exclusively available to a jailbroken iPhone were not stringently tested by Apple to make sure there were no exploits, hacks or other dodgy code that would exploit any weaknesses in the phone, that you would be taking pot luck when you installed a third-party app to a jailbroken phone.

    I'm unbothered about the argument regarding getting paid for apps for free by being jailbroken as I have no qualms about paying for an app I want.

    On an Android phone, it is recommended that you install a virus checker and firewall, especially to a 'rooted' phone. Is that the case for an iPhone too please?
