Jailbreaking or rooting a device is a method used to gain deeper access to and more control over the device. This week we’re interested in hearing about all the way you jailbreak/root and why you do it.
Whether you’ve jailbroken your iPhone, hacked your Kindle, rooted your Android, modded your game console or otherwise broken through the strict (and not so strict) protective measures placed on your devices, we want to hear about it. How did you do it? Did it go smoothly? Why did you do it? What new and awesome things can you do with your liberated device that, shipped from the factory, were unavailable?
Sound off in the comments with your jailbreak stories and then check back on Friday for the What You Said roundup.
