    How to root Iphone 4

    Hi there. I'm very new to the iPhone I've had it for 2 months now and am interested in seeing what else I can do with it. I used to have an android phone and it was extremely easy to root it. I'm having trouble figuring the iPhone out. I am running iOS 4.2.8 and it's through Verizon. They won't allow the new update, thus why I don't have it. Please help me out!! Also I want to make sure the rooting will be reversible. Just in case something happens to it.
    Thanks
    Kayla!

    You mean jailbreak. You can do this by downloading the latest version of Snowbreeze and the 4.2.8 ispw file. Do not upgrade to 4.2.9 or 4.2.10 you won't be able to do a untethered jailbreak. Tethered sucks bc you're going to have to plug your phone into your computer everyone you reboot

    You also just go to jailbreakme.com using your iPhone's safari and jailbreak it from there. It's easy.

    Are there any special features going to be available after I jailbreak and is it going to be reversible? Thanks for your help btw. =)

    You'll have a new app store on your phone called cydia. There's a lot of neat things you can download from there. Themes, tweaks, apps. It pretty much unleashes the full potential of your phone. Yes the process can be reversed by doing a factory restore. Before you jailbreak, it'd be wise to do a backup of your data through iTunes.

    I meant I didn't backup my iPhone before a jailbreak and the jailbreak didn't work. So I had to do a factory restore and I lost a few dozen paid apps. I had to contact apple customer service and email them my iTunes receipts (which I'm sure they could look it up on their end idk why they made me do that). Not to mention photos and contacts. So now I backup my phone every night lmao.
