  • 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.

      Well, I'm sitting on my iPad at 5am playing with Cydia apps. Dropped 2% in about 15 minutes. Or do you mean your phone is just sitting there doing nothing, all apps off (no crazy Apple background stuff)?

      You guys gotta help me out here. Right after the jailbreak I tried to restart my phone but it doesn't get pass the apple logo. It will drain the battery out and when I plug it back in it will stay in the apple logo. Dont know what to do and I dont want to take it to att cuz theyll probably void the warranty.

      Okay, just a really quick question, if I may. I'm currently running 3.1.2 on a 3GS (jailbroken via blackrain). I never bothered upgrading to 4.0, since I was waiting for a jailbreak and now that it's here, I'm raring to go. I know I have to first upgrade to 4.0 before I can use this new jailbreak, but I'm a little worried about the upgrade process. Does this new jailbreak require JUST 4.0, or can I go ahead and upgrade to the absolute latest firmware? I think it's 4.0.2 or something at this point? I'm getting conflicting reports at various sites about this, so I thought I'd just check. Does this jailbreak need to see a certain version of 4.0 to work, or can I just go ahead and upgrade to the latest thing out there? Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated, believe me.

      Unplug the iPhone and turn it off by holding Power + Home. Once off, hold Home and plug it back in. Keep holding Home until "connect to iTunes" shows. From there you can restore it.

      Side question: has anyone been able to change their dialer?

      4.0.1 is current firmware and yes this jailbreak is compatible.

      Do a hard reset. Plug iTunes and click on restore.

      Second post, can usually find my answers by doing a search and reading. Being as the jailbreak was just released I have not seen this mentioned yet.

      I just ordered my iPhone4 this past Thursday so it's still on backorder another week. What are the odds that this exploit for jb will either delay current orders even further while the patch is made or be shipped with a completely different ipsw altogether?

      Secondly, can anyone confirm that the pixelation is restored after factory restore? Also been reports of cydia still being on the phone after a restore through iTunes. Is this on all phones as well or random happenings. Be kind of hard to get warranties honored with this if needed.

      Thanks for the responses.

      Plug it into iTunes and see if it is recognized. If it is, have iTune do a Restore on it. Then just re-jailbreak it.

      Haha, I think I've spent dozens of hours jailbreaking, re-jailbreaking, ******* things up, and doing it all over again in the last 3 years. I'd hope I'd have some idea by now
