Big news folks! The dev-team (thanks to Comex) has released a free jailbreak method for iPhone iOS 4 / 4.0.1 users. Its been only a few hours since JailbreakME.com 2.0 website went live that jailbreaks your iPhone without any software installation.
JailbreakMe.com works on all of the iDevices and jailbreaking can be achieved by simply visiting the website http://JailbreakMe.com from your iPhone/ iPod/ iPad’s Safari browser.
Wait! Don’t get excited just yet. There are some things you have to bare in mind before visiting JailbreakMe.com
- With iTunes, backup all your contacts, videos, music, apps and everything you need before visiting JailbreakMe.com
- Make sure you’re running the latest iOS 4 / iOS 4.0.1 (not the beta) firmware on your iPhone — and iPad on iOS 3.2.1.
- Get connected to an Wi-Fi network for visiting the JailbreakMe website.
Read this before you Jailbreak your iPhone, iPad:
- JailbreakMe.com will not work with iOS 4.1 Beta release
- Facetime and MMS will no Longer Work after you Jailbreak.
- You need to have an original supported SIM card to activate your iPhone with iTunes.
