Here at Blorge, we usually talk about tools that help jailbreak iOS devices as well as updates from the jailbreaking community. However, it’s also important to consider that not all iOS users have the desire to jailbreak their device. This isn’t really surprising since the jailbreaking process does have its downsides: it can void the warranty of iPhones and iPads, brick these devices, and even expose them to security threats.
Fortunately, if you don’t want to jailbreak your device but want to get out of Apple’s walled garden, there’s a solution you can explore: zJailbreak. It’s actually one of the many non-root jailbreaking alternatives out there, but it stands out from the crowd since 1) it doesn’t require a computer or laptop and 2) it’s easy to use even if you’re not so tech-savvy.
One of the best things about zJailbreak is that it doesn’t need kernel privileges, which means that your iOS device stays relatively safer than when you use actual jailbreaking tools. You also don’t need to restore your device to its original state since it doesn’t really leave its original state: you’re just simply making a small, non-threatening tweak to it.
Of course, the great thing about zJailbreak is that you’ll have access to a wider range of apps than what the Apple App Store offers. These include banned apps as well as those that don’t get Apple’s approval to appear on the official app store. You’ll also get to enjoy a massive range of emulator apps (which allow your device’s interface to mimic a Game Boy or any other gadget) as well as tweaks (which let you change fonts and other elements).
zJailbreak even allows you to install the iOS 11 Beta into your device! This means there’s no need to shell out a hundred dollars to open an Apple developer account to get your hands on the beta version of iOS 11.
To get zJailbreak, simply go to zjailbreak.com, install the tool, and start downloading the apps, games, and tweaks you want. Just take note: zJailbreak is for iOS 10 devices only so, if you’re on iOS 9 and below, you’ll want to upgrade your device first.
