    If you didn't know why to jailbreak, then why did you?
    Anyways, a jailbreak:
    It is a way to get custom themes
    It is a way to get tweaks that Apple does not allow (Backgrounder)
    It gives you access to Cydia, and Rock
    You can download apps not allowed by Apple
    You can run emulators
