Hey guys

There has been a sharp rise in the number of people who want to jailbreak their iPhone 5, 5c or 5s and I have been getting a lot of messages regarding the process. For newcomers to jailbreaking it can seem very overwhelming and I want toprovide some basic information that really helped me in the beginning.

Something that I really need to emphasize though is that, under no circumstances, should you try to jailbreaking your iPhone 5 series yourself. You can find many guides online about doing this yourself however, as someone who has tried it, it is not recommended. I was lucky with my attempt and I didn’t ‘brick’ my iPhone however I did cause damage to the iOS and needed a professional to fix it for me. Jailbreaking by yourself is risky and just not worth the effort.

That is why I am going to outline some trusted jailbreaking services that will do the process for you. I have listed 3 here that are my top choices and I have used all of them at one time or another. Jailbreaking does not take long to complete if you are experienced in doing it however this doesn’t mean that you should take on the risk yourself and try and jailbreak your iPhone 5 series.

Here are my top sites:

Number 1 – iJailbreak Pro

iJailbreak Pro is actually relatively new to me however my experience with them so far has propelled the service to the top of my list. The jailbreak itself takes about 5 minutes to complete and I have never had any issues with them at all.

A fantastic addition to their service is that, with the jailbreak, you also get your iPhone unlocked. This means that you can use your iPhone 5 series on any network which you have access to and this comes included in the price so there is no extra charge. Unlocking and jailbreaking often get mixed up with one another however they both have something in common and that is that they shouldn’t be attempted without professional help so getting this service included is a real bonus.

On top of that you also get a 30 day guarantee with iJailbreak Pro so if you are not happy with the jailbreak for whatever reason you can get your iPhone 5, 5c or 5s restored to its default settings. In fact, you also gain a lifetime membership so if any updates come out for the iPhone that require another jailbreak you get this service automatically with your initial fee.

Lastly I want to mention their customer support. Even though the process is a quick and simple one for the jailbreakers I still had my doubts especially after trying to do it myself. However, their customer support team were fantastic and answered all my questions no matter how simple or silly some of them were. iJailbreak Pro definitely lead the way when it comes to customer service.

I can’t recommend these guys highly enough and they are a full 10/10 in my book. You can check them out here.

Number 2 – Apple Unlocker

My second choice for having an iPhone 5 series jailbroken. They are actually a very good company and I used their service several times before I discovered iJailbreak Pro. The actual process itself does take a little longer however you will have your iPhone 5, 5c or 5s jailbroken in under half an hour (usually around 20 minutes).

The reason I went with iJailbreak Pro rather than Apple Unlocker as my top choice was because the former offers much more for your money. Apple Unlocker offer a working jailbreaking service that doesn’t come with many of the added extras and their customer service is not as good. You need to wait for around 24 hours or so to get a reply to an email which is a long time for a process such as this.

I rate them at 7/10 as they offer a working jailbreaking service even if it does have a few drawbacks. You can find more information here.

Number 3 – iJailbreak Tool

Finally we have iJailbreak Tool. The reason that I am including it on my list is that it works and is a much better option than either doing the process yourself or falling for some of the jailbreaking scams out there.

However, compared to the other two options, iJailbreak Pro in particular, it pales in comparison.

Their customer service team could use a real revamp. It is all very well being based on India however if you are trying to appeal to English speaking customers then you need to make sure that your staff speak fluent English – unlike iJailbreak Pro, iJailbreak Tool’s team does not. You can phone them however communication is a problem and they take a while to respond to emails and you can tell that they haven’t been written by a native English speaker.

The instructions aren’t clear either and this was a problem for me given how apprehensive I was about the whole process in the beginning.

The bottom line is that this service works and is better than trying to do it yourself however I would only use them if my other two choices were unavailable.

In Summary

The services that I have listed above work and are a far better and safer option that trying to follow an online jailbreaking guide and doing it yourself.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend iJailbreak Pro as my first choice based on the reasons that I have already mentioned. They really are a superior service in every way and offer great value. The other two certainly work and I would use them if iJailbreak Pro was not available.

The iPhone 5, 5c and 5s are great devices that have a lot of power and potential however you can gain access to many great new features by jailbreaking them. It is fast, easy and cheap to do so with a professional service and my advice to is to unleash the full potential of your iPhone 5 series.

Thanks for reading.

ayeris-2WinterBoard is still one of the most popular ways of changing the theme on your iPhone but to get it you must have a valid jailbreak on your device.  With iOS 8 now released, many of the theme tweaks will likely be updated in due course but all of the following should work perfectly well.

Zanilla 2.1

When you jailbreak iPhone 5 you could do so much worse than to install this beautiful theme.  A lot of other theme apps require you to install custom icons this one has a number of very nice ones included and these are being added to all the time.

Zanilla 2 icons have drop shadows on them with a very good color scheme.  You will not find this on any default repository on Cydia; instead, you will need to download it here. Then you have to place the theme file into the WinterBoard directory called /Library/Themes. You can use iFile, iFunBox or another similar tool to do this.  Get it now before it hits Cydia as a paid theme!

Soft Remix for iOS 7

If you have ever used the theme called Suave HD, you will probably recognize this one. It’s a new take on that theme, one that makes the icons on your home screen a little smaller and more like square circles or “squircles”.

You get a number of custom icons included, some for apps you wouldn’t expect, such BlackBerry Messenger, SoundCloud and iMDB. Those third party apps that don’t have a custom icon don’t look out of place as they do in some themes and more are being added almost daily anyway.

You can get SoftRemix free from the BigBoss repository when you jailbreak iPhone 5S.

UltraFlat for iOS 7

Some themes are designed to make your home screen pop but this one has the opposite effect. All it does is flattens down the stock icons. Each icon has been crafted individually and uses colors from the stock iOS 7 palette.

It’s consistent and complements the rest of the user interface perfectly and the icons that are not themed do not stand out as if they don’t belong.

When you install the iPhone 5 jailbreak head over to the ModMyi repository on Cydia and download UltraFlat for free.

Ayeris

Ayeris is one of the more sophisticated themes, not one that throws itself off the screen at you!  It has more than 200 different app icons included, all themed. Every single stock icon has been themed to match the overall look and feel of Ayeris and some of the more popular third party app icons have been given a makeover as well.

When you have installed your iPhone 5S jailbreak, go to the BigBoss default repository where you can buy Ayeris for $3.99.

M’flat

This theme contains dozens of different custom icons, some for the stock apps and others for third party apps.  It looks more like a nature-themed tweak with its outdoorsy color theme of blues, greens, grays and outdoor looking icons.

More icons are being added as we speak and, for those who choose to jailbreak iPhone 5C, this is a good place to start from in theming.

Again, this is not yet available on Cydia so you need to add it manually to WinterBoard, in the same way as you did Zanilla.

Clarity

Clarity is simple yet sophisticated at the same time. There are more than 150 different glyphs for both stock and third party app icons. The only problem with this theme, although it may not be an issue to you, is that icons that don’t have themes do stand out like a very sore thumb. Unfortunately, this can make the whole thing look somewhat unfinished.

However, if you have the iPhone 5C jailbreak that isn’t a problem – simply rearrange your icons so the unthemed ones are on a later home page – you can do that sort of thing when you jailbreak!

Clarity is free to download from the ModMyi repository on Cydia

7ransparency

When iOS 7 was designed, it was given a much simpler, flatter look and that seems to be the theme for many tweaks. Transparency was a big thing as well and this tweak follows that line. Looking somewhat similar to Clarity, again, the third party icons that ate not themed tend to stand out but more icons are being made available on a regular basis.

7Transparency has no less than 7 different hues and is free to download from the BigBoss repository.

Next week, we will continue with the final 7 of the top 14 WinterBoard themes for iOS 7 so don’t forget to join us.

Capture-d’écran-2014-01-05-à-14.11.03iOS 8 will be with us in the next week but, if you can’t wait or you can’t make your mind up if you want to upgrade or not, there is a way to find out very easily.  iOS 8 comes complete with a number of features such as interactive notifications and support for third party keyboards.

If you jailbreak iPhone 5 you can easily find out what iOS 8 will look like without having to wait for it.  Here’s how:

Interactive Notifications

The iPhone 5 jailbreak gives you access to jailbreak tweaks such as Auki.  This gives you the Quick Reply feature that iOS 8 has and, to be honest, it is difficult to tell the difference between the two. Auki does only work within the Message app though, unlike the new iOS 8 feature, which works from anywhere.

However, Auki has one advantage – it gives you Quick Compose so that you can write your messages from anywhere.  That is not available in iOS 8 but what is, is the ability to action any kind of notification from the lock screen.  There isn’t a tweak that does that but LockInfo does let you do a certain amount.

Widgets

Apple has finally allowed the addition of Widgets in the Notification Center but that has been available for some time.  With the iPhone 5C jailbreak, you can download a tweak called iWidget, which enables widgets to be added to the Home Screen, and that is something iOS 8 definitely doesn’t do.

QuickType

iOS 8 adds in a QuickType keyboard, which allows for easier tying by way of contextual words.  It learns how you communicate and gets to know the phrases you use.  A neat iPhone 5S jailbreak tweak called PredictiveKeyboard brings the same functions as well as adding in an extra row of keys.

Third-Party Keyboards

This is something that has been available in jailbreaking for a long time and is, indeed, one of the reasons why people installed the jailbreak.  iOS 8 now includes that ability, allowing users to download third party keyboards from the app store.  If you jailbreak iPhone 5C you can download tweaks such as AltKeyboard and SwipeSelection. Or you could try Fleksy or HipJot.

Touch ID and Third-Party Integration

Touch ID was introduced last year and immediately resulted in a few very nice jailbreak apps appearing. iOS 8 adds more function to Touch ID in the way of security and using it to access apps so, if you want this, jailbreak iPhone 5S and install tweaks such as iTouchSecure, Asphaleia, BioProtect, and BioLockdown.

Hey, Siri

Siri has a new function in iOS 8 – you can call it up hands free with Hey Siri.  OKSiri does the same thing for a jailbroken iOS device.

Rename Message Conversations

iOS 8 will allow you to rename your conversations in Messages. Again, that has been available in jailbreaking for some time and you can get the feature by downloading MessageRenamer – and it works better than what iOS 8 offers.

Brightness Slider

Now in iOS 8, when you change your screen brightness it actually shows you real-time changes, instead of just showing it in the Control Panel. Download CC Brightness Slider on your jailbroken iPhone 5 to get the same feature.

While some jailbreak tweaks may not be quite as polished as what iOS 8 offers, in some cases they actually give you more features and enhance the functions that are already there. No doubt when the iOS 8 jailbreak is released, we will see a lot of fine tweaks and apps based on what Apple has provided in their latest firmware.

jbip5Do you find yourself getting irritated by ads on your iPhone screen? They take up much needed space, space that is at a premium on the small screen of the iPhone.  There is an answer to it and that answer is to jailbreak iPhone 5.

Jailbreaking gives you access to so many different apps and tweaks that you won’t know where to start.  Choose from tweaks that add function to stock apps, apps that give you extra functions and themes that make your iPhone look cool.

Ads are a part of virtually every app that you download these days and you probably couldn’t remember how many times you’ve tapped on one by accident. Let’s face it, when they take up a third of your screen you can’t help but tap on them and, even if you don’t they are a distraction you neither want nor need.

To make your iOS experience much nicer, here are four jailbreak tweaks that will get rid of annoying apps:

StreamEnhancer

This one targets video streaming apps. Video streaming apps are likely to come with a load of restrictions that get in the way of your enjoyment. Restrictions such as ads all over the place, age limits, no HD without having to pay an extortionate sum for it, StreamEnhancer is the iPhone 5 jailbreak app to fix them all.

It works with YouTube, Hulu Plus, Twitch, and a number of other popular streaming apps as well as TV streaming such as Comedy Central and NBC.  Depending on which app you are using, StreamEnhancer will remove age restrictions or ads. You can also use it to bypass restrictions set by cable providers so you can watch their content.  Think about YouTube – with StreamEnhancer installed you can watch your videos without needing a Wi-Fi connection, view in HD, get rid of ads and watch age restricted content.

AdBlocker

Ad blockers are not exactly a new concept, even on jailbreaking.  AdBlocker is one the more downloaded iPhone 5S jailbreak tweaks with full support for iOS 7.  It works by blocking all ads that appear in your mobile browsers, whether you use Safari, Chrome, or another one. It also blocks the ads that appease in ad-supported free apps.

What it won’t block is AdMob or iAds so you need to download an extension to make that work. You can get one of those on Cydia though and it’s called AdBlockerNetwork. It is free to download on the iPhone 5C jailbreak but you will need to add a new repository into Cydia though. That’s a simple job:

Once you have added it, search for the tweak in the repo and download it.

NoRedirect2AppStore

This tweak doesn’t necessarily target ads but it can get shot of an annoying redirect problem you may have.  When you jailbreak iPhone 5S download the tweak and then, whenever you click a link in your browser, instead of being directed straight to the app store you get a pop up that asks if you want to go to their.

NoSocialAds

This is a tweak that many people jailbreak iPhone 5C.  If you are fed up of seeing tweets or posts in social networks sites that are clearly promoted or sponsored posts, this tweak will get rid of them for you.

It is a work in progress and Facebook isn’t yet fully supported and, for many, that is the worst social network for promoted posts. However, the developer does update his tweaks and apps on a regular basis and is currently working on one that will make the tweak work on Facebook posts.

So, there you have 4 very good reasons to jailbreak any iPhone 5 model you may have. Jailbreaking is a simple process, taking no more than a couple of minutes and is perfectly safe and legal to do.

If you have an iPhone 5, 5s or 5c then it is likely that you have heard of jailbreaking. Even people who wouldn’t class themselves as ‘tech savvy’ or know too much about mobile technology beside taking a few photos, making calls and downloading some popular apps generally know what jailbreaking is. Even if they don’t actually jailbreak their device they will know what a jailbreak iPhone 5, 5s or 5c results in.

However people are jailbreaking their iPhone 5, 5s or 5c for a variety of reasons however we want to look at one of the main ones here – Winterboard.

Apple Can Be Very Restrictive 

We aren’t denying that the Apple iPhone 5, 5s or 5c is not a great range of devices. They are and they wouldn’t have the popularity and sales that they do if they weren’t – even with the Apple brand name. However they can be very restrictive. This does not just mean in the apps that are available for the device but also in the way that it looks and feels. While other operating systems for mobile devices allows a certain degree of customization, this is not always possible with Apple products such as the iPhone.

What Is Winterboard?

Just about everyone – whether they are an Apple iPhone user or not – will know what the icons and iPhone home screen looks like. However with just the default and straight out of the box device then it is not possible to alter this significantly. It might not be the biggest deal in regards to the iPhone 5, 5s or 5c and jailbreaking but for people who like control over their iPhone then it can make a big difference. Winterboard essentially allows for the customization of the home screens on your iPhone and creates alternative icons and designs. You can even download full themes as well for the device.

It Has Practical Advantages Too

A lot of people thing of Winterboard as just an added benefit of the iPhone 5, 5s or 5c. Whereas jailbreaking offers a lot of other practical measures such as being able to download better apps from the Cydia store, Winterboard is also very practical. It means you can customize your iPhone 5, 5s or 5c in a way in which it makes it easier to use for yourself. This means handy app shortcuts, a better design and generally making the device more efficient as a whole.

Jailbreaking for the iPhone 5, 5s or 5c is quick, easy and most of all it is a process that is designed to better the device. We think that the iPhone 5 range is one of the best about at the minute however that doesn’t mean that it can’t be improved by such a simple task. Jailbreaking the iPhone 5, 5s or 5c will not cost much nor will it take up much time to do so. The fact is that even the most inexperienced of technology users can benefit from a jailbreak and in just 10 minutes you can have a device that is fully customizable and enhanced.
