jailbreakme-appJailbreaking iPhones is nothing new but now that the U.S. Government has said that iPhone owners are allowed to ‘jailbreak’ their phones, it gives hackers an open field to do what they do best. Recently a well-known hacker has posted the very first jailbroken iPhone 4 online. You knew it was coming regardless of what the courts had to say about jailbreaking.

The hack for jailbreaking your iPhone 4 is now available at jailbreakme.com. From their, an application is installed (Cydia) that lets iPhone 4 owners and others purchase apps from other stores to run unlicensed or unapproved by Apple apps. That opens up the iPhone to all types of content. You thought the Apple App store had a lot of apps, wait until you see what developers, who do not have to go through Apple’s strict approval process, come out with now. I am sure AT&T will start seeing some traffic increases on the iPhone 4 now that people will be tethering them behind AT&T’s back via apps designed to run on jailbroken iPhones. Not to mention, new apps that utilize the front-facing camera to perform video chats over 3G.

Below is a video from CNN showing how just what jailbreaking does for your iPhone 4.

If you are an iPhone 4 owner, will you jailbreak it? Have you already done it?
