Wondering What’s Jailbreak, and How it can be Done? you heard a lot about Jailbreaking and it seems like a dangerous process, Here’s a guide for What you need about Jailbreaking any Device ..

Why Jailbreak?
When you buy a new Device from Apple, you’re accepting that its fate will be dictated by Apple. They have the full control for what kind of apps you can install on your Device and Which carrier you use on your iDevice and if you want to install an app that Apple hasn’t explicitly approved? Sorry you can’t. Want to Record a Video? Nah Sorry. Want to Change Device Looks, Themes, and Backgrounds? Nope.

Note: Follow this guide at your own peril, know that there’s risk and be careful. Consult elsewhere if you’re nervous, or worry that I’ve missed something.

How to Jailbreak with Spirit:
Step 1: You have to Save SHSH Blob for Mac and Windows from Here.
Step 2: Download Spirit Jailbreak for Mac or Windows.
Step 3: You will need iTunes 9.x (Latest confirmed working version: iTunes 9.1.1)
Step 4: Connect your Device
Step 5: Open the Spirit Jailbreak tool. It will open in a small window, and should display a message like “iPad (3.2) Connected.” If not, disconnect and reconnect your device, and open the tool again.

Step 6: Click “Jailbreak”
Step 7: You should see a screen on the device that says “Restore Complete.” The device will restart, display a spinning pinwheel icon, and open up a colorful screen like this, with a progress bar :

Step 8: It will take up to 30 seconds, then it will boot up to your homescreen, as it was before with the same background, apps and settings. Now you’re jailbroken.
Step 9: Now after restarting your device, you’ll see a new icon on your homescreen, called Cydia. Open it up. This is your new App Store. Don’t worry, the regular App Store still works. you’ve just got another one:

Unlocking is opening your phone to use with different carriers and that what everyone who got an iDevice needs, But unlocking has become more difficult with later firmwares, the tools have grown apart. Spirit doesn’t unlock. If you want to unlock, though, there may be hope.

But if you haven’t upgraded to iPhone to firmware 3.1.3, or you can downgrade to earlier build. then you can use the Pwnage Tool, located here. The process is self-guided and quite similar to using Spirit. Unlocking is a comparatively narrow concern, and can get much more complicated, so I’ll leave it at that.

If you had already jailbroken your device and didn’t like this style, you can switch back and un-jailbreak your device easily

Note: This guide only applies to software versions 3.1.3 for the iPhone and iPod Touch, and 3.2 for the iPad.

Step 1: You need is your device’s latest firmware file that can be got from here.
Step 2: Plug your device in, and open iTunes
Step 3: Shift-click (Windows) or Option-click the “Restore” button in your iTunes device summary page. Navigate to the firmware you’ve downloaded, and restore.
Step 4: Now iTunes should ask you if you want to set up your device as a new device, or from a previously stored backup. If your goal is to return to a life before jailbreak, you’re probably going to want to restore.
