Jailbreaking your iDevice allows you to install jailbroken / cracked apps on it. This is not the only advantage of jailbreak, you can also run multiple apps simultaneously in background after jailbreaking your iDevice. Inorder to install jailbroken apps, you need AppSync which patches the MobileInstallation file on your iDevice so that you may run cracked / unofficial apps. However inorder to run these apps in parallel, you need to install apps like Multifl0w or Backgrounder.
