HackMyPhone

Hacking the iPhone, because the iPhone is Unix at its core.

Security

Obviously, jailbreaking opens your device up to security holes, as Apple is not checking the apps you run. First, you should change your root password. I have already written an article on how to do that here. And second, if you have $2 to spare, you should download FirewalliP. FirewalliP is an outbound firewall for your iDevice. Every time an app (except for Cydia) tries to connect to the internet, it will prompt you to allow it to or not. This app can also protect your privacy, as it can prevent apps from collecting information about your device. Also, if you are on an iPhone or an iPad with 3G, you can minimize data costs by denying Internet access to apps when on 3G.
