"Every article you'll see about jailbreaking an iPhone or iPad generally revolves around a program in Windows or OS X. If you're a Linux user, you'll probably feel left out. By the end of this article by Delan Azabani, you will be able to jailbreak your iPad with ease, and without Windows or OS X.

"What is jailbreaking?

"Jailbreaking an iPhone or iPad allows you to run unsigned code by unlocking the root account on the device.

Jailbreaking voids the Apple-supplied warranty, but if you need to return the device to Apple, simply uninstall the jailbreak."
