All the "jailbreak" does is install a custom update key to make it easy to install developer-signed updates. The K4 is already pretty open (through diagnostics SSH) and using other methods (data.tar.gz), so installing it is less important than on a K3 or earlier, where jailbreaking was about the only way to install custom apps.
