    Does anyone on this forum actually know what a jailbreak does to the firmware? I know the results; cydia and customization and access to parts of the ipod apple has closed off. I was just wondering how exactly a jailbroken firmware differs from a regular one? Is it just an attempt by the dev teams to emulate the apple os with their own code, but modified so that it is open? Or are only a few files deleted and modified?

    I'm pretty sure that creates some files and modifies some to enable the features that jailbreak offers
