Jailbreak - not just for the young

I have a number of iDevices. Most are kept in the Apple Walled Garden, but I had to jailbreak one device just to run a Wi-Fi sniffer, which Apple, in their infinite wisdom, have decided We Shall Not Have. (How we are meant to deal with increasingly crowded and complex wireless networks with the limited tools available to ordinary users, I cannot imagine.) I am not particularly "tech savvy," as Mondo put it - not in El Reg terms; equally, though, I am not young. Thanks to Pangu and TAIG, jailbreaking is not rocket science - you just have to pick your moment and follow instructions. Upgrade one step too far, and it's back to waiting for the next exploit from the really clever boys and girls. pxd
