Jailbreak iOS 9.2

Today, Dev-team released Redsn0w 0.9.8b1, capable of jailbreaking the latest Apple operating-system for mobile devices, iOS 5 (beta).

It is a tethered jailbreak which means that you'll need to connect your device to some computer and run Redsn0w to get 'jailbreak mode' on it.

With all these improvements combined with iOS5, is still worth to jailbreak your device?

I used to jailbreak my iPhone during the past in order to obtain higher customization level for it, gain access to settings which were not available in the official iOS, tweaks that can improve my iDevice experience all things considered.

Many of these 'improvements' are already available with iOS 5, still few are missing.

Jailbreak iOS 9.3

In my opinion, iOS 5 is a great step forward for Apple, which seems to have learned from the jailbreak community in the benefit of their clients. Wish a large number of companies would perform same (e.g. Sony).

A few of the features that helped Apple accomplishing this step forward are:

Unified notifications
Phone-to-Phone messaging
Newspaper/Magazine subscriptions
Advanced reminder system
System-wide Twitter integration
Quick-camera access
Photo editing tools
Tabbed browsing
Reader view
Reach text email
PC-free setup/updates
Wi-fi sync
Not many of the today's mobile os's are coming with the amount of features making iOS one of the better mobile operating system on the market today.

Still, the question remains...will be the jailbreak still a necessity?

Many users will say "YES", jailbreak is a 'must have', probably because they are unaware of what the new iOS can do, some still may have favorite applications which are not available in the new iOS (e.g. BiteSMS), but some will stay away from jailbreak down the road because most of the features that they jailbreaked for are now section of the OS.

In the past, jailbreaking was considered illegal, voiding your device warranty.

Couple of years later it all become legal so long as you are not installing / using paid applications totally free by using the jailbreak tools.

Today, jailbreak means not just allowing non-signed applications to own on your device (Apple require that all application that runs on your iDevice to be signed which has a certificate, this way they've got a better control over their device and the applications that is run on it), it had been a cult.

We still need to wait until the final form of iOS 5 is released, but by subtracting a look at the beta version, iOS incorporated features that not one other mobile operating system may be proud of, making iOS 5 the most effective releases that Apple come out with.
