    Step by Step Guidance 

    Almost all iPhone 5 users are fascinated with the idea of jailbreaking their devices. If you are one of these people and if you want to try doing the modification on your own then you have nothing to worry as there are simple ways to have it done. You may follow the steps below in order to manually modify your device.

    Keep in mind that before you can get started you’ll need to download the correct software. Visit: Jailbreak Software

    Steps To Manually Jailbreak iPhone 5

    1. The first thing that you need to do is ensure that you have already created a backup of your device.

    2. Go to the software’s website and then click on the link to download the application. Launch the tool by simply double-clicking on the icon.

    3. Go to the main menu, select “Extras” and then click on “Select IPSW”.  When a window pops up saying “Successfully identified”, choose a firmware and then hit on “Back”.

    4. Click the “Jailbreak” option and once the tool is done processing the firmware, you will see a few options in the screen.

    5. Since Cydia is not yet involved in this modification process, select “Install SSH” option and then the next button.

    6. Put your device in DFU mode to start the modification process. During this time, make sure that the entire process is not interrupted.

    7. Hold the power button down for five seconds and the home button for 10 seconds simultaneously. Keep on holding the Home button for 15 more seconds after releasing the power button.

    8.  Once you are in the tool’s main menu, select the “Extras” option and then “Just boot”.

    9. If the device reboots, it only indicates that it has already been modified. While the device is rebooting, make sure that you are no longer holding down any of the buttons. Also make sure that the process is not interrupted by any means.

    10. The last thing that you should do is to simply install “Cydia” by going to your settings of your device. Once “Cydia” is installed, it only means that your device is completely modified.

    Again, to get started with the above steps, you’ll need the correct software. You can download it here: Jailbreak Software

    You can successfully modify your mobile device with the use of the steps above. However, you can also skip the lengthy part and just do it effortlessly with the use of a powerful software application. This type of tool only requires a few button clicks to get the job done. Once your device is successfully modified, you will feel like you have purchased a new and more updated phone.

    5 Essential Jailbreak Warnings You Must Know 

    There are many jailbreak warnings that you must know of before you start to remove the restrictions of your iDevice. The software that can perform the removal process may come and go. However, Apple continues to tell owners and users about the different disadvantages of hacking their devices. According to said company, it may not be illegal to perform the process and install programs that are not approved by the company but the device’s service warranty will become null and void should the user opt to hack his/her device.

    That said, you should be cautious about installing a program that can hack the iOS. Keep in mind that modifying said operating system is considered a violation of end-user license agreement. The latest iDevices have added jailbreak warnings through their popular Flipboard app. If you hacked your iOS device, you would see a pop up message about some potential issues you might encounter using a hacked device.

    Although hacking your iDevice means opening up to many new possibilities, it can cause a lot of problems and headaches.

    So, here are some things you must consider why you might not want to perform it.

    1. Discard safety and stability

    This is one of the jailbreak warnings you will find when hacking your device. The process may provide you with several options while increasing its functionality. But it can cause various things to work unexpectedly. Some extensions and add-ons will crash. From there, you will be left wondering what is causing the problem.

    The problems you will encounter are no longer simple. They require some knowledge and effort for you to fix them. Although you can find tools that can assist you in troubleshooting, they are not that easy to use, especially if you are a novice.

    Furthermore, hacking your device means opening it up to new vulnerabilities. You can prevent them, however, but it will take a lot of effort that you may not be willing to undergo.

    2. Unable to update sooner

    This is one of the jailbreak warnings you must heed. Hacking prevents you from regularly updating its operating system. Even though you can easily install an app that can make restoring a bit easier, it will not help you perform an actual iOS update.

    When update is released by Apple, you will have to un-hack it and re-hack it. Then, you will need to re-install those hacked apps and extensions you used before the update. Plus, you will have to wait a little longer to continue hacking your device. And yes, this can be frustrating. Thus, if you really want to hack your device, you must strengthen your patience.

    3. Say goodbye to warranty

    One of the jailbreak warnings you should also consider is the fact that the process voids the warranty of your device. The company will not take the responsibility about the problems you are having with your hacked device.

    4. Restore as often as you can imagine

    Yes, this is one of the jailbreak warnings that Apple keeps on repeating. Hacking your phone is easy to do, when it works. However, in some cases, it fails. You will find yourself repeating the entire process until the hacking becomes successful. Doing it over and over again can be really annoying. And sometimes, you will make a full restore of your device more frequently.

    Although restoring your device’s operating system will only take a few minutes, it takes a few hours to restore your photos, videos and music you have saved in your device. Thus, it is recommended that you allot hours of your time if you encounter such problem. If you cannot afford to waste your time, you should think twice of hacking your iDevice.

    5. Brick the device

    Hacking may cause bricking your device. Although it does not always happen, it occurs. And if your device stops working, you will be forever saying goodbye to it as you can never bring back its life no matter what program you install or hardware to use.

    These jailbreak warnings are always given when you purchase your iDevice. Apple is against the entire hacking process. When you sign its end-user license agreement, you are acquiescing that you will not modify its operating system no matter how tempting it is to customize your device and make it work like you want it to be. So, keep these in mind before you start downloading hacking software.
