5 It Can Be Technical (and Difficult)
The internet makes it easy to learn a new skill — and this includes jailbreaking. However, that’s not to say that jailbreaking is a walk in the park: Apple has made it more and more difficult to jailbreak iOS with each release. If you are not tech-savvy or familiar with administrator privileges, then jailbreaking might be a challenging process for you.
There are three different types of jailbreaking: tethered, semi-tethered, and untethered. Tethered requires connecting your device to a computer and using software to jailbreak it. However, if you power off the device, it will wipe the jailbreak. Semi-tethered means re-running the jailbreak after restarting your iPhone, whereas untethered means that the jailbreak remains as your new OS regardless of when or how you power off your device.
