So thats the first part done but theres a few things you have to be aware here. You’re going to be installing apps which use enterprise certificates and you have no idea who, or where they are being issued from. Basically this means you’re trusting some company, somewhere to install apps onto your phone which haven’t gone through the Apple App store vetting process.
iOS for the main part remains virus and malware free however if you have the slightest doubt about installing software from a foreign source don’t, or at the VERY LEAST, make a backup.

Free movies, tv shows and the rest of it available on your iOS device. Just remember to keep your phone on wifi whilst using unless you have unlimited data.
There’s also a handy FAQ just in case you try streaming but get the dreaded black screen when trying to stream a movie. Simply change your wifi DNS to 126.96.36.199 if your iSP allows it. The DNS change means you use googles service instead of your ISP which is probably going to block popular torrent sites which PlayBox uses.
