  • iPhone 4 is Jailbroken aka The Return of JailbreakMe.com


    The iPhone 4 jailbreak is released, and with class.

    It was nearly 3 years ago now Apple released the 1.1.1 firmware and the jailbreak community saw it's most memorable jailbreak tool released - JailbreakMe.com. These were the very early days of the Dev Team - the folks involved with the original tweak were hdm/metasploit, rezn, dinopio, drudge, kroo, pumpkin, davidc, dunham, and NerveGas. Some of those guys are still involved in the scene.

    The tool jailbroke your iDevice and installed Installer.app (huh? What's that? Cydia wouldn't even be publicly released for a few more months. Installer.app was released in August of 2007) on your homescreen by doing nothing more on the user's end than visiting a website - JailbreakMe.com.



    For the past few weeks, comex and the iPhone Dev Team have been hard at work creating the iOS4 / iPhone 4's jailbreak. And it is now officially released - all you have to do is visit JailbreakMe.com once again - this time from your iPhone 4. Oh, and it's not just for the iPhone 4. The renewed JailbreakMe.com now supports a TON of devices:
    • iPod 1G on 3.1.2
    • iPod 1G on 3.1.3
    • iPod 2G on 3.1.2
    • iPod 2G on 3.1.3
    • iPod 2G on 4.0
    • iPod 3G on 3.1.2
    • iPod 3G on 3.1.3
    • iPod 3G on 4.0
    • iPad on 3.2
    • iPad on 3.2.1
    • iPhone 3G on 3.1.2
    • iPhone 3G on 3.1.3
    • iPhone 3G on 4.0
    • iPhone 3G on 4.0.1
    • iPhone 3G[S] on 3.1.2
    • iPhone 3G[S] on 3.1.3
    • iPhone 3G[S] on 4.0
    • iPhone 3G[S] on 4.0.1
    • iPhone 4 on 4.0
    • iPhone 4 on 4.0.1

    Much time was put into the development of this jailbreak, and it's smooth as butter - when you visit the website from your iPhone, you're greeted with a slick "Slide to Jailbreak" slider. And... well, that's it. You slide. It jailbreaks your iPhone. Cydia is on your homescreen. No restarting your phone (although when you open Cydia the first time it will do it's normal first-run rearranging of file system and require a restart), no button sequence, just a jailbroken iPhone 4. Or iPhone 3G[S]. Or iPod Touch. Or iPad. You get the picture.

    We expect Pwnage Tool to receive a refresh sometime soon for folks who like the added benefits it offers (root partition sizing, boot images, auto-install packages, non-userland jailbreak, etc), but for now there's no official time on a release for that, and my iPhone 4 is jailbroken. 3 cheers for comex and the Dev Team.

    Mod on, legal customizers.

    Also - we're hosting planetbeing's new iPhone app, Signal. It's available through the Cydia Store now, and works on 3G, 3G[S], and the iPhone 4. Signal maps the cell towers you are connected to and displays detailed cellular information from the baseband. Pretty nifty app which runs $4.99. The Dev Team and planetbeing don't accept donations - but these guys have put a LOT of work into the iPhone and the most recent unlock and jailbreak! Grab that app in Cydia asap to give back to planetbeing - and get a sweet app as well.

      Here's a tip to those hanging on an empty purple screen:
      1. Clear Safarai cache, cookies, history.
      2. Reboot iPhone to flush dns.
      3. Go to jailbreakme.com ...MAKE SURE you are at jailbreakme.com NOT jailbreakme.modmyi.com (the MMI) mirror.

      The "official" site worked for me, the official mirror hosted by MMI didn't work for me.

      If your having problems instead of going through a restore just clear your browsers cookies etc. It worked for me and a couple others that were having issues.

      WOOT!!!! I am now officially jailbroken on my iphone 4. Not sure if it makes a difference, but I hadn't previously upgraded to the lateset firmware, and I couldn't access the jailbreakme site...so I figured since it works for 4.0.1 I'd go ahead and upgrade while waiting for the servers to cool. Went to modmyi on my phone after upgrading, went to the post and clicked on the jailbreakme.com link and BAM...1 min later, I'm in CYDIA...GREAT JOB Dev team.

      For those of you that have tried and got the galaxy wallpaper, go to settings and clear all history and cache etc. Manually close safari and go back in and try again. Make sure your typing in JailbreakMe

      Re-quoting:

      These are the steps that worked.

      ***NOTE***

      As SOON as you slide the Slider to Jailbreak, if nothing happens (ie a spinning wheel on the top status bar) and then a new window that says "Downloading...This may take a while" then it didn't work and it froze. RETRY! It will start immediatley, and if not, it froze.
