  • 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.

      Nope, SBSettings works beautifully. Even the phone toggle works on mine to put it in airplane mode.

      I'm also interested in knowing if ultrasn0w will unlock 4.0.1 on a new bootrom 3GS. Want to upgrade both of my parents phones and wasn't sure.

      I just went thru the jailbreaking and unlocking of my 3gs new bootrom and as far as i can tell everything works. I have not tried another sim card yet to verify the unlock works but it went thru without a hitch. I hope this helps. And of course thanks to everyone who put this j/b together.

      UltraSn0w 0.93 unlocks all 3G and 3GS BB from 04.26.08 up.
      It's only iPhone 4 owners who have to wait a few more hours.

      Anyone have a quick solution for a friend's iPhone 4 I'm trying to jailbreak? My own phone and my wife's worked without a hitch. This one keeps crashing after the file downloads and right when it's about to start processing the JB. I reset network settings, cleared the Safari cache -- still crashing. Thoughts?

      Anyone else notice that your recent web pages in safari reset after a while?

      It's not quick but restore the phone and try it again. That should fix what ever problem you are having.

      Sorry people are having problems. I just wanted to come here and say that I am not having any problems with any standard functions on my iPhone 4 on 4.0.1 firmware with AT&T. MMS works, facetime works....it also works on 3GS network with My3G and I am surprised at how well it works with that.

      Only reason I wanted to post this is because I don't want readers to think it's problem for everyone.

      Yeah, I had resigned myself to doing this. Thanks though!

      I currently have a week 26, modem 5.11.07 3GS on 3.1.2 jailbroke with PwnageTool, with SHSH files on Cydia. I'm on AT&T but want to keep the option to unlock. Do I restore to the official 4.0.1 firmware THEN apply this hack? Or should I stick to PwnageTool and create a custom 4.0 firmware? Thanks!

      Worked fine for me on Iphone 4 v. 4.0.
      Couple of people have mentioned problems with Mobile Terminal- I think the version downloadable from Cydia is not compatible with JB 4.0. There is a beta version you can google for which is supposed to work, or you can wait until its fully debugged when it should appear on Cydia.

      I updated to 4.0.1 and jb my 3GS today with no problem. No hangups. The only thing I did notice was that I lost mms and that my wifi bars were showing 3G instead. Loaded cydia and updated and then restarted. No problems and everything is working well. I'm waiting for winterboard to be updated so I can put the theme I had before back on. I was using elite pro. The home screen looks funny when I loaded the theme so I just disabled it and will just wait for update to winterboard.
