    Apple block the device to do only what they want us to do in the iPhone. I think is you jailbreak it only for install things that you can't, or install apps from cydia, it's OK. but if you jailbreak it for install cracked apps, you are doing illegal things.

    But that is all to you,

    It's not illegal, it just voids your warranty.

    It is NOT illegal to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad or Android. It's illegal to distribute or download apps without paying for them. Sharing a jailbreak method is NOT illegal.

    Apple has been squawking about jailbreaking for years, mainly because they don't have control, once a device is jailbroken. Jailbreaking however, is NOT against Apple's TOS, mainly because they can't stop you from doing whatever you want with a device you paid for. They will continue to blah,blah, yadda, yadda, and "strongly advise against" jailbreaking but the bottom line is that it isn't illegal and it isn't against their TOS. The only thing they could do, is to void their warranty if a produce was jailbroken.

    Jailbreaking is NOT illegal.
    But it may be against the TOS of your Carrier/service provider ,if there is clause in the contract.
