Posted on July 7, 2011

Yes you can. Detailed step by step instructions are found here ( More info on jailbreaking here.

Most people do this so they can customise the screensaver (to remove the famous authors / personalities and put their own pics in). The jailbreak also lets you do a number of other hacks to the device.

In summary, if you want USB networking, new screensavers or new fonts, this may be for you, otherwise don’t really bother.
