    I have jailbroken my iPod Touch, iPhone4 and 3GS(unlocked & jailbroken), and iPad 1st gen! And have never had one single problem with them. I don't know if they can get a virus but I doubt it.

    I wouldn't have it any other way! :) And I've never had a virus on my phone while jailbroken.

    Thread moved to the iPhone Jailbreak section.

    Jailbreaking your device does not give it a virus. I've not heard of a virus getting itself onto an iDevice. The only thing I can think of is somebody installing OpenSSH on their device and not changing the default password from alpine, thus allowing idiots access to their stuff for malicious purposes.
