User Reviews 3.0

Update: 3.0 is the latest and greatest in the one stop jailbreak website’s releases, this time allowing iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users to hack iOS 4.3.3 versions. As before the hackers behind the site include “comex” and Grant Paul (chpwn), and this time with help from the creator of Cydia himself Jay Freeman (saurik). Apple is already preparing a patch for the jailbreak as it poses a security risk. Using the new 3.0 version of JailBreakMe is seriously simple. Just visit the website from your iOS device and hit the “free” button then tap “install” (yes it looks identical to the App Store layout). A Cydia icon appears on your device while it is installed.

Issues: If the hack started then suddenly went away you might have a newer version of the iOS firmware than is supported by jailbreakme.
JailBreakMe 3.0

Previous Versions

Jailbreaking for the masses is here! Jailbreakme 3.0 by comex (et al.) is a one step, free, web based iPhone/iPod/iPad jailbreak. “Slide to jailbreak” That’s how easy it is to jailbreak your i device now days. Just open Safari and enter the URL on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This is brand new and in response to the recently approved DMCA exemption by Library of Congress that specifically allows jailbreaking. The process takes about 2 1/2 minutes and is easily reversible, just make sure you backup your iPhone in iTunes first.

The first time we did this the installer crashed, meaning after we did the “slide to jailbreak” step it hung and only showed us the website’s wallpaper. This even froze Safari. Luckily though after a quick restart, opening the website a second time gave us a message saying it had noticed a failed attempt. “oops… it looks like the installer crashed last time you tried to jailbreak. it might work if you try again.” So then we then started a second time, and amazingly enough this time it worked. The entire process takes about 2:30 minutes and here is a video that demonstrates the process. We did this on an iPhone 4, which worked flawlessly and placed the Cydia icon on the home screen. From there you can add sources and install Rock.

Updates: As initially reported today by some news sources, the method used in JailbreakMe 2.0 is not a PDF-based vulnerability in OS X but in a component for displaying PDF files. The site uses a number of tricks to identify what device is requesting to be jailbroken and then loads an appropriate PDF file into it. If you are unable to get to the original site, you can visit an alternative site created as well.
If you have already upgraded to version 4.01, or plan to upgrade, won’t work for you. Apple has patched the PDF hole in Safari that allowed the installation.

About the developer

Nicholas Allegra is the 19-year old Brown University student from Chappaqua, NY who goes by the name Comex. As stated in a tweet, Comex is going to be joining Apple as an intern in the fall of 2011.

Warning Use at your own risk! Backup your iPhone to iTunes before jailbreaking.

    The idea you have to Jailbreak the iPhone and make it so incredibly easy for anyone to do, is fantastic! You cant make it any easier than that! You all rule!
    Now….. When will you be able to JB 4.1 os? I would pay good money to get that done on my phone.
    Please man! Upgrade soon!

    mvh pepijo

  15. Bypassing the Overlord
    To this end, I have constructed a server that duplicates the functionality exposed by Apple’s signature server, except using “on file” results rather than live requests.
    All we need, then, is to make iTunes use it. Luckily, most operating systems also have the ability to locally define bypasses on specific hostnames through a file called hosts. Using this, we can redirect requests to Apple’s signature server to Cydia.
    So, open the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X) and add the following entry to the bottom of the file.
    Now, when iTunes thinks it is talking to Apple, it is talking to Cydia instead. Doing this will allow iTunes to access signatures already stored by Cydia’s “on file” feature.
