It's not dangerous as long as you follow the given instructions on jailbreaking the phone. If you follow them the phone will be fine.

Jailbreaking is safe as long as you follow some guidelines. You should understand you are making it possible to run unsigned code on your device. If you do it make sure you use Mobileterminal to change the root and wireless passwords from the default value "alpine". Also only use reputable default repositories until you learn about certain developers beta repos. Honestly though the guide is a bit out of date. Explaining DFU mode is a waste of time and makes it sound complicated...

My 2 cents...

Not all potential jailbreakers are on 6.0. As such, they may need the dfu explanation.

I guess that's true if they have an old device. Maybe it would be better just to point them to other sites that separate out the instructions based on the device and iOS version.

Your solution to a non-issue is to offer free advertisements to other sites rather than offer the help here?

You complain it confuses users, yet one of the first things you do is mention things they don't need to know. Without opening up ssh, the password change "is a waste of time and makes it sound complicated."
