My child is asking me about Jail Break, which is a new thing with iPod, which I know nothing about. I heard of this for the first time today. As a concerned parent, I am just wondering what JailBreak is. What I heard is that it is illegal in Japan, not illegal in the United States, and Apple does not want people to use it. There is some worry that it could damage the iPod, but it adds functionality to the iPod, in fact so much functionality that one is able to download applications for free that are not intended to be free.
So I am wondering, is this illegal or not?
Is it safe to get on an iPod?
