    How secure is Jailcell? Can I really trust it? Will no one be able to gain root access? Thanks.

    it is very secure. no one can gain root access with a jailshell. almost all the binaries to gain a root access do not run here; so it is safe.

    Go on, have a guess
    If only that were true. A chrooted environment is safer that one that isn't. That's as much as you can say. It is possible to break out of such an environment and gain root access if a vulnerability exists, so you can never ever say that it is "safe". It's just "safer" than a non-chroot.

    correct, nothing is totally secure, it just helps prevent, or bides time so that someone cant bust root.

    It does help to stop malicious users but isnt a total solution, just basically adds a piece of mind that you will be a little more secure.
