Government Declares iPhone Jailbreaking and Unlocking Legal Government Declares iPhone Jailbreaking and Unlocking Legal(1)

The Library of Congress has deemed that jailbreaking your iPhone in order to install applications not approved by Apple and/or to unlock is legal under new rules announced today.

According to the Associated Press, the decision to allow the practice commonly known as “jailbreaking” is one of a handful of new exemptions from a federal law that prohibits the circumvention of technical measures that control access to copyrighted works.

The hack will work on any devices manufactured prior to September 2008 with the 5.8 bootloader, though iPhones with the 5.9 bootloader cannot be downgraded.

In case you’re not sure when yours was made, you can find out by checking the serial number on the back of the device. The third, fourth and fifth digits of teh serial number show the date. If they are 8 followed by a 36 or lower (xx836xxxxxx), you should be fine. Users with the 5.9 bootloader shouldn’t have any adverse effects from running the downgrade; it should just not work for you.
