  • 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.

      Installed SBSettings ok but there was a message that something wouldn't open, I forget what. Anyway, SB works ok but I don't have the toggle phone to airplane mode...
      Wifi, data, 3G etc no problem.
      Any idea how to change/update this?

      Edit: I added the phone toggle in settings, all seems well

      Update: I tested this and found that I can switch on and off my phone service, but when it's off I just get a 'no signal' indicator, instead of the airplane icon. Not a problem, at least it works

      Mobile Terminal that works is over at xsellize. Can't link to it on this site, but it's under 4.x Software.

      I like that
      Regarding themes on ios4JB, are there any concerns/caution points?
      When I was at 3.1.2 blackra1n JB, I often changed themes, quite a good selection available.
      Now with ios4 JB, I'm using folders, which I prefer to categories.
      Are themes compatible with ios4 in general? Do they need to be updated like most things on cydia? Is winterboard OK?

      Any recommendations on how to approach the theme issue would be appreciated

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!
      I'd stick with pwnage tool

      Went to jailbreakme.com today and "slid the bar", let me just say that it worked smooth as silk. No issues, no problems whatsoever. Love Cydia, and MyWi is the bomb. Getting 30mB down speed. Worth the $10 for sure. Comex deserves a medal for this. I will definitely show the love through donation$. Now I wanna find out if ATT can determine if I'm tethered or not. Anybody know where people are talking about that?

      Are you guys having issues with sbsettings or anything set to slide up down left or right using activator when you are on cydia? I noticed that it doesn't recognize those gestures at all when I have cydia opened. Sbsettings does not pop up when sliding at the status bar

      I can't get SBSettings to work when cydia or Rock are open. Other apps are OK, although not tried them all

      Same with me. I tried to reinstall sbsettings and same thing. I also have other apps controlled by activator using status bar gestures and they do not work when cydia is opened. But when other apps are open they work fine.

      Why not? SBSettings controls quite a few items, cydia is an app.... just like the rest. Works with Apple appstore open

      Yes, it's normal-ish.
      I got used to it, I'm sure it'll disappear sometime
