  • JailbreakMe.com 3.0 - Safari-based Jailbreak Returns (iPad 2 Supported!)


    @comex has triumphed once again over iOS.



    JailbreakMe 3.0 (jailbreakme.com) is once again live, supporting the iPad 2 now (as well as all current devices). Here's the full list of supported devices and firmwares:

    • iPad1: 4.3 through 4.3.3
    • iPad2: 4.3.3
    • iPhone3GS: 4.3 through 4.3.3
    • iPhone4: 4.3 through 4.3.3
    • iPhone4-CDMA: 4.2.6 through 4.2.8
    • iPod touch 3g: 4.3, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
    • iPod touch 4g: 4.3 through 4.3.3


    The Dev Team's article about the release does warn this jailbreak uses a .pdf exploit which could put your device at risk - and recommends you install PDF Patcher 2 from Cydia immediately after jailbreaking to secure your iDevice.

    Jailbreaking straight from Safari is by far the easiest jailbreak, and a great time to introduce your friends to jailbreaking. @comex first released jailbreakme.com for the 1.1.1 firmware in October of 2007, releasing the 2nd installment in August of last year as the first iPhone 4 jailbreak. JailbreakMe 3.0 marks the 3rd installment, and the first iPad 2 jailbreak.

    Unlike the iPhone Dev Team, @comex does accept donations. I recommend you go over to jailbreakme.com/#moreinfo and toss the guy some bucks for his time!

    Oh, and while the Dev Team notes this exploit IS in iOS 5, they also state it's fairly sure Apple will close it by release. "However because the iPad2 had no public jailbreak yet, it probably wasn’t worth waiting until the fall to use them. If history repeats itself though, there will be more holes and exploits."

      I wouldn't just because I haven't seen anyone that has successfully jail broken their device after it has previously been jailbroken. Matter of fact I think a few posts up someone said they did what you want to do and now It's not working.

      My iPhone 4 was jailbroken on iOS 4.0.1 since last year. I just restored to 4.3.3 and then re-jailbroke at jailbreakme.com. I'm reinstalling my jailbreak apps right now.

      The only trouble I encountered was installing 4.3.3. I kept getting error messages. Eventually google told me I needed to escape my hosts file.

      Yeah I'd stay where you are. Though, I'm trying a full restore before trying to jailbreak again now to see if that works... It's just taking an hour to restore my backup...

      4.3.1
      Bug Fix Release
      Fixed graphics glitches on iPod Touch 4
      Baseband updates for the 3GS and iPad (original)
      Fixed memory hang that results in memory corruption when reading large files from USIM filesystem
      Fixed problem with NTLM authentication in apps and on websites
      Fixed issue with the Springboard and 3rd party apps not recognizing the gyroscope on the iPad 2
      Resolves bugs related to activating and connecting to some cellular networks
      Fixes image flicker when using Apple Digital AV Adapter with some TVs

      4.3.2
      Bug Fix Release
      Fixed issue with blank or frozen video during (or before) a FaceTime call
      Fixed issue with connectivity to 3G networks on iPad 3G + WiFi

      4.3.3
      Bug Fix Release
      This update contains changes to the iOS crowd-sourced location database cache
      Reduced size of the iOS crowd-sourced location database cache
      No longer backs that cache up to iTunes
      Deletes that cache entirely when Location Services turned off
      No longer allows user to remove apps that have not been completely downloaded


      It would be best if you were on the latest version but as other people advised at this point there's a great chance you won't be able to jailbreak again (with jailbreakme at least). I'd wait a couple of days I'm sure @comex will be able to fix it or somebody will find a workaround.

      Just an FYI for those who have problems. Even Saurik says to wait a week. Twitter

      (In fact, @comex is in /such/ a hurry that his new jailbreak will have a poorly tested kernel driver in it. I'd wait a week to use it...)

      So I purchased an iPad 2 32GB Wifi. It came with 4.3.3 so I activated it in iTunes and did the jailbreak straight away. Took 10 seconds and Cydia was installed. Great.

      But I seem to have a problem. Whenever I open Appstore and try to install anything, I get this message: "Verification required- before you can make purchases, you must tap continue to sign in, then verify your payment info."

      It then opens Appstore and a window pops up for a split second and then it quits to the springboard, never letting me enter my info. I have tried turning off and on, to no avail. Anyone got any ideas?

      Incredible! I was dreading jailbreaking my friend's iPhone/ iPad - it usually takes a bunch of research. This made my life a lot easier. Sending Comex $5

      Finally! lol many people have been waiting for an iPad jailbreak. I'm just glad that comex made an easier jailbreak for inexperienced jailbreakers who don't want to or are afraid to go through the more complex steps of redsnow or pwnage tool

      Not excited about this. Cydia is gonna be down for a while. Ive been great on 4.3.3 iPhone 4 untethered for a month or two. This is kinda a nail gun to the nuts
