How to easily jailbreak and customize your iPhone iPad

This is going to be a really simple and easy tutorial on jailbreaking your iPhone iPad along with easy customization. After having my iPhone 4 for 2 years I finally convinced myself to jailbreak my iPhone 4. I thought why not jailbreak my iPhone 4 as I will be upgrading likely to the iPhone5 or the Samsung Galaxy s3 depending on what the new iPhone is like. Regretfully I wished that I had done it sooner as my iPhone 4 now feels like a completely new phone that I enjoy a lot more and find myself spending more time on.

This how to that I will be showing you will be absolutely simple and easy to follow for beginner or intermediate iPhone / iPod / iPad user. I have broken this tutorial up into videos that I have found across YouTube that are simple, provide the relevant information and walk you through the steps. OK lets get started.

Step 1: Jailbreak your iPhone / iPod.

This video from CNET is so simple and easy to follow, it will show you how to jailbreak your iPhone / iPod / iPad in just a few minutes. This is the video I used and followed and worked like a charm.

Step 2: Set up Cydia on iPhone / iPod

Once you have jailbroken your iPhone / iPod you will now be able to customize to your hearts content. This is done through an app called Cydia which comes pre installed when you jailbreak your iPhone / iPod / iPad. Once you watch this video you will have a very good understanding on how to set up everything to start customizing your iPhone / iPod. The sources in this video you will find below.

Step 3: Customize your iPhone / iPod

After Cydia is set up you will now be able to customize your iPhone / iPod / iPad. That includes short cuts from the lock screen, your own customized pull down notification centre, apps you cant get on apple app store, add extra apps to home screen, shrink apps, change default browser, change your theme and the list goes on and on. Below there are 2 videos on lock screen themes and top Cydia apps and tweaks that will get you started.

Hopefully you have a good feel of how jailbreaking works and that you can now customize your iPhone / iPod / iPad to your own style and feel. Below I have some screen shots of how my jailbroken iPhone after I followed these steps. If you have any questions on the themes, tweaks, short cuts or if your are having any difficulties comment below.
