  • 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.

      The two lines are just the jailbreak doing it's stuff. Nothing to worry about. If you want to get rid of them just restore - you'll lose your JB but the lines won't be there...

      it works as normal after the full charge, but at some point later, it goes back to the dashes.

      Cant seem to get into the App Store or iTunes mobile store on 3G anymore with my iPhone 4, just sits on loading for a few minutes then says cannot connect. Works fine over wifi. Not sure if this is an issue with the jailbreak, installing my3G (tried uninstalling but still no go) or some other reason. Anyone else experiencing this?

      Dude....in Cydia...there is a huge 4.0 disclaimer (assuming of course your at 4.0.1) saying that an activator bug prevents the sbsetting window from appearing in some apps so use the short hold on the home button (for example)...

      Make sure Edge & 3G are turned on in SBSettings if you are on AT&T

      I have never had any issues with App Store or itunes on 3G before. They have the max mb limit but they still work (normally) for songs and small apps.

      If it doesn't work, restore (not new software, just from backup) using iTunes and try again. If that doesn't work, back up everything and then do a Full Restore (new software) and then manually re-sync everything, and then try again.

      And, yes, the newest iTunes works fine.
