    Hi,

    As a new boy to this I have seen many references to Jailbreak, but nothing that actually explains what it is or what it does.

    Also if I use it would it invalidate the guarantee on my iphone.

    Thanks.

    I know you are new, but you really should search a bit, and take notice of the forum stickies. Have a look here

    Jailbreaking your iPhone will void your Guarantee/Warranty, but a simple restore will reverse this.

    Thank you, very informative although perhaps a little complex for a novice.

    Is there somewhere where I can find a definative list of things gomes etc you can put on itouch/iphone when Jailbreak is installed.

    Many thanks

    Jailbreak = allowing you using the maximum capabilities of your iDevice.

    Jailbreak is more of a verb than a noun
