1) Install third-party applications via Cydia: Install all those applications that you can find on Cydia are:

Video Recorder- You can capture video on your iPhone.

Nemussync- One can sync iPhone calendar with Google calendar.

MxTube- Download large number of things from You Tube and save them on your device.

Iphone Modem- You can use your iPhone as modem and can provide Internet connection to your laptop or PC.

2) Video Recording- Apple has blessed us with such an awesome device but still there are some applications that are not provided by them. Video recording facility is not available in iPhone. If you jailbreak iPhone you can turn iPhone camera into video camera for video recording by using Cycorder.

3) Changing looks of iPhone- If you are bored with the standard icons of your device then don't worry you can change icons and looks of your device. If your device is jailbroken, you can use Winterboard to apply as a theme on your iPhone and change its look better than before.

4) Full control on Your device- If you want to have full control on your device, you need to jailbreak your device. You know that inner-part of iPhone is a trim down version of Mac OS X. It is a Unix core and you must be thinking whether you can install Unix applications like Apache web server then, answer is yes. Most of the jailbreak users are using SSH daemon. With SSH you can connect your device remotely and can transfer any file from it. Its pretty cool, right?

5) Unlock iPhone- The most common reason that people jailbreak their device to unlock it. Remember You can't unlock your device until it is not jailbreak.

Unlocking Benefits: If your iPhone is unlocked you will be able to use cheap local SIM cards in your iPhone or you cam make calls at cheaper rates. One can use different SIM cards on his/her device. We know that Apple has supported only one network AT&T network, which means that you can't use other networks. But after jailbreaking you can use any networks anywhere in the world. It do not make any changes in your device , it just allows your device to accept any Sim card.

Other benefits of unlocking your device is the addition of Cydia. Cydia allows you to add thousands of applications in your iPhone. You can have themes, wallpapers, videos and many more.

Disadvantages of jailbreaking:

Bricking device: Sometimes when we jailbreak our device, it bricks the device. It does not always happened but may be it can occur during jailbreaking process. And if your device bricks it will stop working forever.

Voids warranty: It is important to know that when your device is jailbroken it voids the warranty of your device. And, Apple will not take the responsibility of this as it is never supported by them. But don't worry as you can get back your warranty after setting the restore factory.

More chances of viruses: Always try to download reliable and well used software in order to avoid the spams and viruses.

So, from this article we can know that besides benefits of jailbreaking , it has also disadvantages.
