    It's a frequent asked question for me.It's hard to explain cause everybody is like "Huh?"I usually try to explain it but never get a success usually.

    I'll just be like "It let's you install cool stuff like themes and cool system mods"

    Jailbreaking is defined as "opening up the file system to allow unsupported code to run". In plain English, it "it's a hack that allows you to install cool tweaks, themes, and apps that Apple would not let 'fly' with the iPhone/iPod".

    No use of the word firmware anywhere.
    They better know what a hack is by now.
    If the understand the first definition they are very technical.

    If needed replace the word tweak with something else (I'm 99% sure the know what a tweak is).
