jailbreaking commonly is the the equivalent for (IOS) i.e Rooting for (Android)-is the process of replacing the manufacturer’s factory-installed operating system with a custom kernel. It can be used to bypass the Digital Rights Management (DRM) and share copyrighted media, or to access file system, user interface, or network capabilities that are otherwise locked down by Apple. For example lets say i wanna install FIFA 14 on my ipad. The application costs $4.99 on Itunes, If my device is Jailbroken i can download an IPA (equivalent of an APK on Android) and install the app without paying a cent. Whereas if my device isn't jailbroken i cant do that cause of the digital signing that Apple does on their software.....

Once you have done that, will you be able to restore your phone as it was before?

Jailbreaking[1] is a process that allows iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users to gain root access to the command line of the iOS operating system, thereby removing usage and access limitations imposed by Apple. Once jailbroken,[1] iPhone users are able to download extensions and themes that are unavailable through the App Store (via installers such as Cydia) and perform other tasks that are not possible on store-bought devices, including installing non-Apple operating systems such as Linux.[2] A jailbroken iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch running iOS can still use the App Store and iTunes and other normal functions, such as making telephone calls.

Jailbreaking is different from SIM unlocking,[3] which, once completed, means that the mobile phone will accept any SIM without restriction on, for example, the country or network operator of the owners choice. Jailbreaking, according to Apple, can void Apple's warranty on the device.[4] Under the DMCA of 2010, jailbreaking is perfectly legal in the United States, although Apple may claim it to void your warranty. It is also legal in many other countries including the EU. The jailbreaking process can be quickly and easily reversed by restoring the device in iTunes.
