Jailbreaking your iPhone is not illegal

Yes! you can freely jailbreak your iPhone. EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) won a landmark case in the U.S.

"In its reasoning in favor of EFF's jailbreaking exemption, the Copyright Office rejected Apple's claim that copyright law prevents people from installing unapproved programs on iPhones: "When one jailbreaks a smartphone in order to make the operating system on that phone interoperable with an independently created application that has not been approved by the maker of the smartphone or the maker of its operating system, the modifications that are made purely for the purpose of such interoperability are fair uses.""
