Should You Jailbreak Your iPhone Or Root Your Android?
Jailbreaking and rooting gadgets might seem like a harmless way to get more control of your device, but it could actually do a lot of damage.By Leah Becerra | September 2, 2015
Here’s a question: Should I jailbreak my iPhone or root my Android?
Your phone is built to perform at its best. Although some believe rooting an Android or jailbreaking an iOS device makes it better — that’s not necessarily true.
When you jailbreak one of Apple’s phones or tablets — or even an Apple Watch — you’re forcing the gadget to give you special permissions and options that aren’t normally available. You might want to do this to get an app that Apple hasn’t OK’d. Usually these non-Apple certified apps can be installed only after jailbreaking, through Cydia. Think of Cydia as the app store for jailbroken devices.
