  • 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."

      Nice job! I know it's only been out for a few minutes, but I'd be interested to hear about battery life on IP4 GSM. I had to get a new one on 4.3.3 and battery life was atrocious with redsn0w (b18) and only moderately better with sn0breeze (2.7.3). TIA!

      Holy Sh*t that is insane. Two seconds and my iPad 2 is complete again. You guys are way too fricken smart. I will definitely be sending a donation. Every person who uses this should throw some money to him. I know enough about coding to be dangerous and know how complicated this thing must have been to build. Show the guy some love...

      Thanks!

      Doesn't work for me on my iPhone 4 on 4.3.3 as a lot of other ppl.

      As of now I tried many combinations of clear all Safari and hard resets without any luck. I even tried to reset all settings (settings/general/reset/reset all settings) but still not working.

      Cydia in downloading but it disappears once it reaches installing. I'm guessing that's a bug in jailbreakme.com 3.0 itself but if anybody worked around this issue, let us know!
