  • 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.

      I restored my phone, allowed iTunes to activate it, went to safari, went to "jailbreakme.com" NOT "jailbreakme.modmyi.com" and voila: it works.

      Same thing worked for me. After several failures, I updated to 4.01 which did a restore on my phone. I then tried again and it worked. So it looks as though a restore on the phone will solve the problem.

      For the people who have JB so far, how does Cydia and its apps work? I heard Cydia is faster now.

      I did the jailbreak and I instantly lost service completely. I'm in the US and on AT&T.

      I am on AT&T in the states. MMS is gone for me. No option to send a picture inside the Messages app or when I go into the Photos app, no option to send photo as a MMS.

      Haven't tried FaceTime yet.

      Finally got in! I did a clean restore first. It should say downloading, this may take a while and then it says jailbreaking, sit tight. Then it takes you to the comex donation page and a popup says cydia is on your homescreen. Its even simpler than spirit! Thnx comex!!!!

      Jailbreak was finally successful.

      Cydia is so fast.

      I'm on AT&T and my MMS still works.

      Too happy.
