  • 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.

      Someone was telling me I should now go use ultrasnow. Now I'm still new to the jailbreak community, but why would you use ultrasnow?

      Isn't jailbreakme.com the jailbreak?

      Somebody please tell me why I would use ultrasnow if I had to and what's the difference between ultrasnow and jailbreakme.com.

      Sorry guys, don't mean to be such a noob! Still trying to learn the ways of the force!

      Thanx

      ultrasn0w is if u wanted to unlock your phone to use on another network. so if you have tmobile u would buy an iphone jailbreak then unlock it so you could use it on tmobile instead of AT&T

      Aight guys, Question for you....

      I have had the original 3g for two years and had it jailbroken and LOVED IT! but over the years it became god-awful slow and i never really realized it until i got the iPhone 4. I really want to jailbreak my 4 solely for the fact of MyWi 4.0 (which i had on the 3g). But i am way to nervous that the jailbreak will slow my new phone down as did the last time. Are yall experiencing any slowing or lagging at all with the new jailbreak?? Any feedback would be great. And if theres anyway to avoid slowing the phone down once jailbroken (besides turning all Spotlight options off).

      you are aware on your 3g that it wasnt built for multitasking on 3.0 because it would slow it down. so if ur 3g was jailbroke on 3.0 the main reason it was slower is because of multitasking which you get the sbsetting addon Removebac i think its called or something like that kills all the apps that run in the background at once thus speeding it up.

      in regards to the iphone 4 it has 512mb of ram compared to i think 64/128 of the 3G so there shouldnt be any slowdown like you experienced on your 3G. I ran as many as 30 apps in the background and havent experienced any slowdown on my iPhone4 at all hope this helps

      I have an Iphone 4 with firmware version 4.0 and baseband 1.59. I ran the jailbreak routine from JailbreakMe, and all seemed fine. Cydia asked me to update essential files. Now the phone is stuck at the Apple logo. Any idea what the remedy for this would be?

      Thanks in advance.

      Thanks for the reply...do you know of any well explained steps for doing this? There is so much information out here about it its very difficult to understand exactly what works for what and what doesn't.....
