Why Jailbreak?

Jailbreaking enables you to run user-created patches and tweaks at the system level, allowing for dramatic changes and improvements to your iDevice – visit JailbreakMatrix’s 100 reasons to jailbreak to see just how awesome this news is:

Cydia is like the App Store for these tweaks, and creator @Saurik quickly responded that he hadn’t had the proper files to update Cydia and the mobile substrate platform, which means for now many of your favourite tweaks will not yet be working.
