You need to jailbreak your iphone to transfer files to your phone from your computer because apple forces you to install that bloated itunes, android can do that straight out of the box.

Can recover from jailbreak easy.

Some droids cannot recover from root.. or rollback to stock.. Might get hard brick ... very risky business in android to load another rom.

As for the comparison in customisations between iOS jail broken and stock jelly bean, i think you'll find that a rooted android is far more customisable than a jail broken iPhone ;o)

Poor blind android believers! There is absolutely no risk of bricking ios device with this jailbreak. Its fun to do. Does not void guaranty as you can always go back to the stock os. And whats most important, as many developers and hackers arround the world said. When ios device is jailbroken even Jelly Bean is faar behind when it comes to customization! Perfect!

It's sad to see your lack of understanding on how to use English, first off "looser" is spelt "loser". Secondly wanting to jailbreak is not only for free apps like many "righteous" people like you believe; for example i've been putting off my iPad mini purchase because without jailbreak i can't use the screen to choose music once i've connected to my car's headunit. Now there are people who just jailbreak because then they can get free apps, but Installous is now SHUT DOWN. So it becomes much harder to find such a wide variety of free apps.

Most people jailbreak iphones not to customise but to get paid apps for free. Like android users still need to root to get the same for free.

cant understand why ios or android jailbreak / root..

Just use your phone normally and wait for updates patiently.

All phones can call/sms/social/gaming out of the box.. why need so much customisation and risk breaking your phones?!

apple's iOS is very restrictive and imposes limitations but I still love it. We all have our preferences and others MIGHT just want to respect. 'Am here to say that I love my iOS device but I also like Androids open platform. These two,well for me,are the two main contemporaries when it comes to mobile OS. They have their own strengths and vulnerabilities. The other is very fluid and aesthetically more pleasing to the eyes when it comes to icons while the other is the users are pleased with its open ecosystem and offers high customization(with every phone maker,I presume)and plethora of phones to choose from...
