In these modern times mobile devices are part of the everyday life of each individual. These devices contain a major part of each user information in comparison to their personal computers. On a mobile device people can access their bank account and make transactions with ease and eliminating lines in the bank as the mobile devices are always connected to a network. By having compute power and ease of transport in a person’s pocket these devices are becoming the primary computing device of people. In this paper there are the two sides of vulnerabilities that are the use of these to implement code that allows modifications called Jailbreak and Rooting. The other side would be the patching and security that developers go through to prevent unauthorized access and strengthen end user security. Mentioning their update cycle and vulnerabilities database overview. Key Terms - Jailbreak and Rooting, Mobile Security Features, Third Party Modifications, Update Cycle.
