  • How to Jailbreak Using JailbreakMe.com


    This OS X and Windows guide will teach you how to jailbreak various devices using JailbreakMe.com. Note this is an UNTETHERED JAILBREAK, meaning your device will be able to restart and operate just like an unjailbroken phone.

    This guide should be used with the following device/firmware combination (if you're not sure, here's how to find your iOS firmware version and how to find your iOS device type):

    • iPad 2 | 4.3.3
    • iPad 1 | 4.3 - 4.3.3
    • iPhone 3GS | 4.3 - 4.3.3
    • iPhone 4 | 4.3 - 4.3.3
    • iPhone 4 (CDMA) | 4.2.6 - 4.2.7
    • iPod touch 4G | 4.3 - 4.3.3
    • iPod touch 3G | 4.3, iOS 4.3.2, iOS 4.3.3 (not iOS 4.3.1)


    This is by far the easiest jailbreak ever. Open Safari on your device and visit jailbreakme.com. Tap FREE underneath the Cydia icon, and tap again to install.



    Cydia will begin to install on your device, just as if you'd downloaded it through the AppStore.



    That's it! You're now holding a jailbroken device. Not too bad, eh?

      Seriously mate, you don't know if you have an iPhone 4 or 4s? Did you find your phone or something?

      Easiest method is seeing how many black band separators are on the outer antenna. iPhone 4 has 3. iPhone 4S has 4.

      No. This just jailbreaks it.

      I would leave it as is if i were you. I spent the last couple of days trying to get ios 5.0.1 to work but there are too many bugs and the jailbreak is pretty unstable (quarter screen bug anyone?). Plus a lot of the core tweaks i use (backgrounder, activator, winterboard, folderenhancer) either break things or don't work. In the end i decided to downgrade back to 4.3. But it all comes down to personal preference i guess, i just didn't like not being able to do most of the stuff i used to do.

      If you want more functions (and ironically less), go ahead and update it. iOS 5.0.1 has "improvements and other bug fixes including:
      Fixes bugs affecting battery life
      Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
      Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
      Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation"

      I don't know what kind of iPhone you have. All the iPhones (except iPhone 4S) can be jailbroken and unlocked untethered as of 5.0.1 (thanks to Chronic Dev Team. Currently, pod2g is working on the iOS 5 (not specified of version) for the A5 devices, which are this iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. I can't help you with your decision, mostly because you never specified your iPhone.iPhone 3GS? I wouldn't because it's probably going to be slow (if you jailbreak and add tweaks), otherwise go ahead. iPhone 4? I recommend it (if you are going to jailbreak).

      I don't recommend it if you are upgrading to iOS 5.0.1 for jailbreaking (and adding tweaks) and having iOS 5 functions if you want to balance it with speed. Speed is the crucial factor. iOS 5 looks like the last supported firmware for iPhone 3GS (based on what Apple did with every iPhone since the first one), which may suggest sluggishness on your iPhone 3GS when combining it with tweaks and iOS 5 functions.

      Of course it slows your iPhone down if you jailbreak it, and have extra functions from iOS 5. The exact same thing happens with computers as well. When you have a clean install, everything is quick and fluid (relating to iOS 3). When you install applications, fill up your storage space (locally), and add more start-up processes, than you computer will behave slower. You don't need to be curious, it is obvious that iOS 5 will slow it down.

      iOS 5.0 is stable on all iPhones 3GS and up. Just download the stock iOS. iOS 5.0 would only crash if these conditions are meet:

      1. The iOS 5.0 is corrupted.

      2. You created a custom firmware version of iOS 5.0 incorrectly.

      I have an iPhone 4 (CDMA, 4.2.8) and an iPad 1 (GSM, 4.3.3). Both were jailbroken using jailbreak me.com, but now I want to upgrade to iOS 5.x.x. What's the best way to upgrade/UNjailbreak? I'm pretty sure I have the SHSH blobs saved using tiny umbrella. will i need these? any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
