A “walled garden” is a closed platform in which the supplier, in this case, Apple, chooses to impose tight control over apps, content, and media. People who wish to be free of the constraints they feel Apple has imposed, from the default applications that come with iOS to the fact that the operating system’s basic structure cannot be customised by individual programmers, third-party developers, or even consumers themselves are opting to jailbreak.
How is it performed? You must link your iPhone or iPad to a computer in order to jailbreak it. Then you should use your computer to install jailbreaking software. You will quickly jailbreak your Apple smartphone if you follow the methods provided.
However, the risk is still high. If you are using your phone for work purposes… Unfortunately, amateur hackers and individuals looking to make quick cash on your behalf can offer these services, and also put viruses on your phone. There’s a strong possibility you’re getting ripped off if you try to buy a gadget that’s already been jailbroken or have it done to one that you already possess.
