MB-Wizard August 2, 2010, 5:39 am


alan5354 August 2, 2010, 5:47 am

This is very cool..

I manage to jailbreak it and it takes about 5 minutes only.


maqrlon August 2, 2010, 5:48 am

i love this new jailbreak thank you so mach ……

Ordinary_guyz August 2, 2010, 6:14 am

How come when I slide to jailbreak.it keeps crashing?

RHabib August 2, 2010, 6:28 am

Reports have said that the servers have been crashing and you have to try a few times. That’s what engadget said.

fatboy August 3, 2010, 1:40 am

turn off your wifi

Brewski August 2, 2010, 6:16 am

Stupid question, I got the jailbreak, I got cydia running, where exactly do i go to carrier unlock

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 7:18 am

for iPhone 4.. wait a bit more..
for 3GS, 3G install UltraSn0w 0.93

RHabib August 2, 2010, 6:27 am

This may be repetitive question but I am on 3gs 3.1.3 with a Spirit Jailbreak using it on TMobile USA. If I update the phone to 4.0.1 and jailbreak it using the unlockme.com and add ultrasn0w will it unlock the phone? Or is their an update still needed? That’s the only way my phone works on TMobile still as you all know so I just want to make sure if I update it I am not screwed.

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 7:20 am

ur iPhone must be activated to jailbreak
you can unlock with UltraSn0w.. iPhone 4 unlock is in final testing phase

RHabib August 2, 2010, 8:36 am

Thank you so much guys for all the advice. Big props!

naz August 2, 2010, 7:00 am

Done jailbreaking my ipod touch 2nd Gen MC model (8gb) it works fine..maybe juz a weeny tiny lag here and there..i tried the themes and its working fine..only cant get the wallpaper up and running even wallpaper on custom themes aint working..but then again..its finally jailbroken! so..lets hope someone here can enlighten us more with the new “jailbreakme”


JazzytheMudkip August 2, 2010, 7:02 am

Worked great! Just finished it’s process right now!
It added Cydia to my homescreen. Thanks a bunch for the link!

Even though I just started on this;
Is there a way to enable the background wallpaper and multitasking on there once it has been jailbroken this way? I’m running on 4.0 firmware, iPod touch.
Thanks in advance.

JazzytheMudkip August 2, 2010, 7:24 am

Nevermind! I figured out how to do it through Cydia! Thanks, though! This is the easiest jailbreak I’ve done!
The custom firmwares didn’t even work for me.

Kyle August 2, 2010, 7:21 am

I get this error message when trying to jailbreak:

A server with the specified hostname could not be found.

Any ideas?

fatboy August 3, 2010, 1:42 am

go to wifi settings and turn it off. this stopped me downloading it also

mikeallmighty August 2, 2010, 7:24 am

Keeps Saying Server with specified host name could not be found .

Vijovame August 2, 2010, 7:25 am

I will kiss you comex, works perfect!!!!!!

zholy August 2, 2010, 7:58 am

Need a Mac version for the jailbreak!
My phone is NOT activated!

didithu August 2, 2010, 8:00 am

It may sound repetitive but What if i want to upgrade to 4.0.1 from 4.0 how we proceed using this method?

Newbie August 2, 2010, 8:21 am

So all I need to upgrade my 3gs to 4.0.1?It doesn’t matter if my bootrom upgrade to the new one?

cymistry August 2, 2010, 8:27 am

Is anyone having issues jailbreaking iPad on 3.2.1?

Jeihsin August 2, 2010, 8:40 am

Ive read in forums that the 3G models reboot after starter.

cymistry August 2, 2010, 8:50 am

Ok. I have wifi so I’ll give it a try. Thanks a lot.

julian99 August 2, 2010, 8:50 am

same here, the site crashes everytime I try to load it in Safari for my iPad 3.2.1

cymistry August 2, 2010, 9:29 am

Do you have a 3g iPad?

julian99 August 2, 2010, 10:42 am

yes mine’s 3G. I’ve tried using Wifi – same result. either crashes or hangs at the purple screen

TarekElmalah August 2, 2010, 10:54 am

Comex the maker of the jailbreak has stated he has noticed people are having problems with the ipad jailbreak so to wait til tomorrow when he can fix everything u can also follow Comex on twitter

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 11:08 am

stuck at the purple screen >> refresh and try again

HawaiianRyan August 2, 2010, 8:46 am

Stupid question. If I am running 3.1.2 with 05.11.07 firmware and I’m using a tethered jailbreak. Can I just shut my phone off then reboot and use this new jailbreak to have an untethered jailbreak?

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 8:49 am

nope… restore and jailbreak (your device MUST be activated)

jailbreak_woes August 2, 2010, 9:03 am

I am trying to jailbreak my iphone 3gs running iOS 4.0. After visiting jailbreakme.com from my iphone, I slide the slider, slider disappears, and I see an empty screen(with OSX default background). I waited for several minutes but receive no feedback. Am I supposed to wait longer, or do I consider it crashed and retry(I retried several times actually)?

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 9:27 am

cause: Server load.. keep trying

jailbreak_woes August 2, 2010, 9:39 am

Was indeed server load. I retried with the second URL and it worked like a charm. yay! great work by dev team!!

kuto August 2, 2010, 9:05 am

TarekElmalah August 2, 2010, 10:35 am

Comex the maker of the jailbreak has notice some people are having problems and he will have it fixed and ready tomorrow , so just wait til then id suggest !

sean1234 August 2, 2010, 9:07 am

snow August 2, 2010, 9:18 am

hey, was wondering..my iphone 3gs 3.1.3 05.12 was jailbroken using spirit.So if i want to update to 4.0.1, will my applications all gone?

TarekElmalah August 2, 2010, 10:34 am

you should just back up your data via itunes, u can still use itunes updates and restores for now, untill apple comes out with a new firmware !

snow August 2, 2010, 10:47 am

so does this means that i wont lost the apps that i downloaded frm installous ?all i need is to sync it back to the os4.0.1 after i jailbroken it?or restore?

TarekElmalah August 2, 2010, 10:52 am

u will not loose anything , just install the jailbreak and then unlock and everything u have on ur iphone will be there, but as long as u have it saved on ur itunes anyways it is you will always have it no matter what !

snow August 2, 2010, 12:14 pm

ok..i’ll try..so i dun need to save my shsh?just upgrade my firmware n baseband?thx alot!

snow August 5, 2010, 8:37 am

mastereye August 2, 2010, 2:48 pm

mmh. i must get the background of the jailbrake after sliding to start it. What shall I do? It worked 6 hours ago. Does the website work at all? I had to restore because springboard kept crashing.

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 8:54 pm

Servers are flooded with Download requests so be patient

scottphillips88 August 2, 2010, 2:49 pm

Ok, I jailbroke my iphone 4 running 4.0 and it worked great the first time! Then I decided I wanted to update to 4.0.1 I updated and of course the jailbreak was gone. I then tried to jailbreak again and it download and then crashes on the hold tight every singe time. I have done it 100 times. I just grabbed my wifes iphone on 4.0 and it again work the frist time perfects. Suggestions?

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 8:55 pm

restore and keep trying.. Servers are overloaded ATM

Tex August 3, 2010, 10:58 am

I got the same problem, you need to :
– backup your iPhone
– retore your iPhone to manufacturer config by using DFU mode (google is your friend)
– restore your backup
– synchro your iPhone to get back your music and applications
– open http://www.jailbreakme.com on your iPhone with safari

samsuth1 August 2, 2010, 3:11 pm

ive got a 64gb wifi + 3G iPad running 3.2, should I jailbreak, im running on vodafone new zealand, thanks in advance!

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 8:56 pm

it’s your choice 🙂
Simply follow the instructions if you want to.

vodanhz August 2, 2010, 6:41 pm

hi, i accidently installed winterboard without categories. and it hidden my icons 🙁 including cydia, now i can’t uninstall winterboard,
any chance i can unhide the icons ???

Ordinary_guyz August 2, 2010, 6:45 pm

Hey there.. Try to install sbsettings… And then once u restard springboard, swipe on the time from left to right or right to left then there should be something slide down… Then click on more and follow the instruction…

vodanhz August 2, 2010, 6:55 pm

problem is, cydia is also one of the hidden.

that’s my problem, otherwise it’s easy to just uninstall winterboard.

Ordinary_guyz August 2, 2010, 7:53 pm

Dude.. Search cydia at spotlight. If the icon is hidden but the spotlight will appear

vodanhz August 3, 2010, 10:44 am

yeah, i didn’t think it work,
i found this program call Cyder II for installing packages without WIFI on the phone.
but realise i had categories hidden too. so i went to spotlight did a search. woot, it came up, so happy, restore my icons and removed categories

thanks anyhow

Ordinary_guyz August 3, 2010, 11:26 am

Yeah..don’t mention it. But now I have the problem with my iPhone 4. It won’t go to home screen.. I try the phonebook.. I try everything… ;( I hope comex or dev team or geohot can jailbreak the phone without activate the phone.

chrispey August 2, 2010, 11:13 pm

I’m also getting the “Oops… A server with the specified hostname could not be found” with the option to Quit or Retry. Anyone found a solution that doesn’t involving tapping my screen hundreds of times until it hopefully works?

iPhoneHeat August 2, 2010, 11:43 pm

Server is DOWN!

chrispey August 2, 2010, 11:47 pm

Thought that might be it. Damn popularity of jailbreaking. I’ll keep trying. Thanks.

fatboy August 3, 2010, 1:47 am

I have used this tool it’s amazing, however winterboard is not activating tweaks like the blue wifi logo, or the live clock omega or rolex. Any ideas?

vodanhz August 3, 2010, 11:08 am

those are themes?
just browse the themes, also “optimize” in the bottom of winterboard.

phatweese August 3, 2010, 5:07 am

I’m trying to JB an iphone 4 running 4.0.1. It downloads the package fine, but then it crashes safari and I’m back at the Home screen. I tried hard resetting after each crash, and also my wifi is off. Doesn’t seem like it would be caused by server overload. What else can I do?

Ive been trying to jailbreak my phone for a couple hours now. I slide the slider to start the install but when i get to the part where it says sit tight, it crashes to the homescreen.

I have tried a bunch of different things like clearing safari caches and history, closing background applications, rebooting the phone, turing off the wifi. I’ve searched many forums on this issue and haven’t found a solution that works for me. Please help me!

Iphone 3GS, iOS 4.0.1

ecliastee August 5, 2010, 11:49 am

Im having trouble doing this on my iPhone 3g 5.11.07 3.1.2

it downloads, and when its installing or whatever ( it says sit tight) it goes to about 1/3 and craps out on me. Sometimes it says “cydia has been added to your home screen!” but still stays on 3.1.2

any suggestions?

hi i have iphone 3gs ver 4.0.1 i have tried to use jailbreakme and when i try to slide to jailbreak its stuck any ideas?

Himal August 9, 2010, 9:53 am

Was having 4.0.1m worked like a charm for me.. cool.. Thanks!!!!

David August 12, 2010, 8:50 am

I believe JailbreakMe does not do the update from lower OS like 3.1.2, 3.1.3 to the latest OS.

By releasing version 2.0 here, I believe it means it can be used to JB 3.1.2 & 3 at their current OS version (just like the predecessor Spirit).. sort of backward compatability thingy

I am also a ‘hoper’ 🙂 Waiting for a complete jailbreak tool that does 3.1.x to 4x in 1 go. Guess its too much to ask at this moment. JailbreakMe is already quite ahead of the game.

now to upgrade to 4.1 and see what happens..

Hope this helps
