  • How to Jailbreak your iDevice


    It's difficult to figure out how to jailbreak your device sometimes. There's currently TWELVE devices that have been released running iOS, and there's hundreds of firmware, carrier, and operating system combinations running around that have resulted in a hundred guides on every site on how to jailbreak your iDevice. It's confusing.

    We spent the last few weeks building a database of devices, carriers, firmwares, and jailbreak tools so we could build a clean, all-in-one-place tool which will allow to you find the correct guide for YOU to jailbreak YOUR iDevice.

    modmyi.com/jailbreak is our new jailbreak assistant. Simply click your iDevice, and follow the few prompts to let us know a little more about your device. We'll then give you a link to the correct guide you need!

    This should be the answer to a TON of people's questions on what they need to do - and an easy place to send your friends or use when you're trying to jailbreak a friend's device. We've also updated the top "I want to jailbreak my..." links to point to that tool (yah, they've been out of date for a while).

    We'll be keeping the jailbreak assistant up to date with every new firmware and jailbreak tool, so you can count on it to always have correct, up to the minute information.

    NOTE: The jailbreak assistant currently supports jailbreak only (no unlock), iOS 4+, and all iDevices except Apple TVs. We'll be adding support for Apple TV next week or sooner, and support for unlock in the next few weeks. It's just being released now, so there may be small bugs - please let us know so we can address them quickly!

      Kyle explained that here:

      Awesome idea! It's already been done in other places, but having it here in our beloved MMi is totally awesome!

      We will be adding preserve baseband support in the upcoming updates (i.e. how to jailbreak with PwnageTool/sn0wbreeze). This is first release - it took an exuberant amount of time to build this so we wanted it out as soon as we had it populated enough. It's a work in progress.

      Great work MMI. This site is such a resource and I'm pretty sure my 3GS wouldn't work without this site.

      It looks great. Look forward to seeing the updated releases.

      Not really. It was bought by Saurik (you can check, they did a posting on it a couple weeks ago). It's still very safe and convenient if you have a supported OS

      For folks seeing a blank area where the jailbreak assistant should be, it's a Firefox issue. Use another browser and it will work fine (we're working on a fix for Firefox which should be live tomorrow).

      Saurik has jailbreakme.com back so it's 100% safe.

      Fantastic!! I spent a few hours trying to find a jailbreak/unlock for a friends 4 running 4.2.1 the other day..... problem was it had baseband 03.10.01 and I wanted to unlock that. What info I didn't have was if I upgraded to 4.3.? would it update my baseband and would there be a unlock available for the new baseband as 03.10.01 was never unlocked. Would it be possible to have a baseband unlock guide as well? It would mean you go straight in, look at the iOS version along with the baseband and know instantly if it can be jailbroken and unlocked as well.

      It was purchased by someone, and then Jay Saurik (the man responsible for Cydia) purchased it from them. Jailbreakme.com is still a very safe way to jailbreak and there is nothing to be concerned about.

      Now if you can just integrate the JB Assistant with Siri, I think we're set.
