  • Jailbreaks On JailbreakMe Surpass One Million


    Yesterday, comex (@comex) (with some help from Grant Paul (@chpwn) and Jay Freeman (@saurik)) released JailbreakMe 3.0 to support devices running 4.3+ including the iPad 2. The full list is below:

    • iPad 1: 4.3 through 4.3.3
    • iPad 2: 4.3.3
    • iPhone 3GS: 4.3 through 4.3.3
    • iPhone 4: 4.3 through 4.3.3
    • iPhone 4-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


    JailbreakMe has been reported to work phenomenally and has had a ton of positive reception. For this reason, it has been a hit for all iDevices, however most popular with the iPad 2.

    chpwn tweeted about an hour ago saying that JailbreakMe has surpassed 1,000,000 jailbreaks. That is a pretty impressive feat. Apple, due to the leak of JailbreakMe earlier this week, has been tipped and is most likely aiming to patch it in a new version of iOS 4 (4.3.4).



    If you haven't jailbroken your iPad 2 (or other device), give JailbreakMe a shot. It's available at the following link on your iDevice:

    www.jailbreakme.com

    Make sure to save your SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella or some other tool to ensure that you are safe when 4.3.4 releases. Also, to patch the PDF exploit hole, download PDF Patcher 2 from Cydia.

      question, im still on 3.1.2 (3GS) and unlocked with ultrasnow.

      can i now just update to 4.3 then use jailbreakme and just install utlrasnow? or do i need to update with a cooked rom (preserve baseband )instead?

      Safer to use a Custom IPSW in your situation. Don't ever 'just upgrade' if you need an unlock. Good luck!

      Hey can anyone help me out?
      I have an iPhone 4 on 4.0.1 with base band 1.59.00 and unlocked with ultrasnow. Will I lose my base band if I use jailbreakme to jailbreak it again? Thanks!

      You are safer using sn0wbreeze then unlock with ultrasn0w from cydia repo. You will need to add repo666.ultrasn0w.com. Of course you should use something like pkgbackup to save all your programs. I save them to dropbox which i have found more reliable than saving them in outlook.

      Can I use pwnagetool instead?

      sn0wbreeze is the only one that i know does not change the baseband. I believe pwnagetool and redsn0w both may.

      Correct...pwnagetool is the O-riginal....sn0wbreeze is the follower.

      Sn0wbreeze used to be a very poor windows wrapper round xpwn but ih8sn0w has learned a lot and, with help from Comex for the patches, it's evolved into something I no longer tell people to steer clear of. Pwnage is Mac only and Sn0wbreeze is Windows only.

      Pwnage is, of course, from the Dev Team and will only ever be released when it is perfect whereas ih8Sn0w let's people who do not understand what a 'beta' is try it....

      Decided to do a test run on my iPhone 3GS before doing it on my iPhone4. I did a fresh install of 4.3.3 via iTunes. Ran the jailbreak (if you can call it that, cause it's so easy lol), everything seems to be working properly, except randomly the loading bar (circular one in the middle of the screen) pops up on top of whatever screen I am on. Then after about 20 seconds the phones resets. Rather strange.

      Edit: the phone does not always reset, sometimes the loader bar just goes away.

      I too suffered the endless boot after doing a respring; which followed me editing the carrier name through iFunbox. I was weirdly able to back up my device while it kept trying to reboot/respring, so I finally was able to restore it and rejailbreak it...I'll avoid what I was trying to do till the fixes come out. Thanks again Comex...YOU DA MAN!!!

      Sorry if this is a stupid question, but my phone is jailbroken for iOS 4.3.3 (iPhone 4) using redsn0w. Is the jailbreak for redsn0w a different exploit than jailbreakme? Does the PDF exploit that affect jailbreakme also affect redsn0w users?

      Yes. different exploit.

      Does the PDF exploit that affect jailbreakme also affect redsn0w users?
      Yes, your phone is vulnerable to a major security misfeature.
      Install the Cydia package: pdfpatch2 to fix it.

      Everyone should do this.
      IMPORTANT: All Who Are Jailbroken Should Install PDF Patcher 2 Now! | iJailbreak.com - Apple | Jailbreak | Unlock | Cydia | Tweaks | Guides

      It's still an issue (specifically for the Verizon iPhone 4). A fix is in the works so hopefully it will be updated soon.
