  • 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.

      If you slide the Slider and nothing happens, then retry because it's frozen. You DON'T wait for it to start. It should start IMMEDIATELY. Soon as you slide the Slider the little spinning wheel next to your wifi signal bar should start and immediately you should see a new window that says "Downloading..This may take a while" with a progress bar. I had to try many times, but got it to work on the original site.

Besides, i've got my ipad and it is jailbroken, so who really cares. I'm not complaining, i'm pointing out a flaw in decision making on the part of the people that decided a web based jailbreak was best. Anyone with a brain would have known that after all of the ignorant actions/comments from people who beg for jailbreaks on a daily basis, that the servers would be down within minutes of this being announced. Now i'm sure that you have a brain that has not fully developed yet and you do not understand anything other than "black" and "white" in your sad little world but the rest of us know there is a gray area. I'm in that area by using my right to speak freely and share my thoughts on the "release" of this jailbreak. So please, take the time to try and defend yourself here with more school yard comments and inane little insults but at the end of the day, you couldn't keep up with me on a bad day in life and probably never will judging from your absurd "insulting response". Have a great and stay the hell out of mine you little waste of space.

      So easy! iPad 3.2.1 is free! Thanks! Used official site. Took 20 some tries and 20 minutes. Not too bad. Just keep tryin people.

      Really like the return of jailbreakme! Imagine how big a turd apple just dropped in their trousers! This is gonna be impossible for them to keep even the dumbest of users from being able to do.

      Awesome choice of distribution! Especially coming off the recent ruling regarding jailbreaking

      I was getting the problem with nothing happening after sliding the slider, so reset the safari cache, history and cookies and then it worked, might be coincidence but might be worth a try
