But why Jailbreaks are prohibited for tablets now? According to the decision may laptops, gaming devices, e-books and tablets not sufficiently distinguish from each other. Neither the form factor or the functionality could be defined sufficiently to add it as an exception to the DMCA list.

The screening process of the DMCA was found, however, once again: "[we] did not demonstrate any significant relationship between jailbreaking and piracy". There was no direct relationship between jailbreak and piracy can be found.
But what does this mean for the jailbreak community?The DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) works naturally in the U.S. only. The proliferation of iOS jailbreak for iOS tablets and unlocks in the U.S. are thus now in a legal gray area. This does not mean that they are also illegal. They are simply no longer protected by a legislative exception.
Accordingly, it is therefore currently still jailbreak iOS give for Tablets and Unlocks for iPhone 5. Currently we do not have to worry that these two actions are actually prohibited.
