JailbreakMe.com is here. Jailbreak iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G on iOS 4 / iOS 4.0.1 and iPad on iOS 3.2.1

By Sidharth | Apple

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.
  • Also, Safari crashes sometimes and this is because of the server overload as thousands of users are hitting the website every hour. You have to re-try to access JailbreakME. Consider yourself lucky if it works at the first shot 😉

Use JailBreakME.com if you have any of the devices mentioned in the list

iPod 1G on 3.1.2, iPod 1G on 3.1.3, iPod 2G on 3.1.2, iPod 2G on 3.1.3, iPod 2G on 4.0, iPod 3G on 3.1.2, iPod 3G on 3.1.3, iPod 3G on 4.0, iPad on 3.2, iPad on 3.2.1, iPhone 3G on 3.1.2, iPhone 3G on 3.1.3, iPhone 3G on 4.0, iPhone 3G on 4.0.1, iPhone 3G[S] on 3.1.2, iPhone 3G[S] on 3.1.3, iPhone 3G[S] on 4.0, iPhone 3G[S] on 4.0.1, iPhone 4 on 4.0, iPhone 4 on 4.0.1

Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G on iOS 4 / 4.0.1 and iPad on iOS 3.2.1

Open safari browser and navigate to http://jailbreakme.com, now the next process will be displayed on the screen i.e., slide to jailbreak.

Wait for the jailbreak tool to download the required files and just don’t do anything silly at this point. Wait for the process to complete and once done – you’ll be greeted with an message: “Cydia has been added to the home screen. Have fun!”

Congrats! Cydia is now installed on your iOS 4/ iOS 4.0.1 device 😉 Pretty easy eh?

can i still text if i jailbreak my iphone?

    Sidharth January 4, 2011

    Yes, you can, given the firmware is as said above.

Will this harm my iPod touch 3g on ios 3.1.3 at all? I very cautious about this jailbreaking stuff…

    Sidharth December 31, 2010

    I have iPod touch 3G as well, it came with the 3.1.3 version. So here’s what I did: downloaded Snowbreeze, downloaded the iOS 4.1 and patched the iOS with the Snowbreeze, then sync the iOS file onto my iPod touch with iTunes.

    You can’t use Jailbreakme for 3.1.3 firmware version, you can either upgrade to 4 and give a shot at jailbreakme.

Baronm November 29, 2010

Well I have a 8gb 3.1.3 iPod touch and everytime I try to jailbreak it it either exits me out of sarfari or it will restart me and I don’t know what to do. Also I tried restarting it myself, clearing sarfari history, cookies, and cache. And lastly my computer is broken so please help me!!

john November 11, 2010

hay bro,i have 4.0.1/3.2.1 ipod which has got face time.when i tried to jailbreak my ipod it says that,Version too new.you need to downgrade to 4.0.1/3.2.1 or earlier before you can use this site.
Do you guys have any idea how to jailbreak my ipod.i have been trying this for a month.

    Sidharth January 4, 2011

    Perhaps you used jailbreakme? There are different tools available now, like Limera1n, Greenpois0n, etc.
    Check your firmware version and give it a thorough research. Or, let me know, I will what I can do. 🙂

I’m confused.. can I use this if I’m running 3.1.2 on my 3GS, or do I have to update to 4.0.1 first? Looks like it says you can, but also, looks like you need 4.0.1… help me! Thanks

Jailbreakme.com has saved me from smashing my iPhone! Thank you thank you!!! I really appreciate it! Was completely lost without my phone, I don’t remember my friends numbers, there just names on the phone to me. I’m no iphone literate knowing SHSH blobs or whatever, this was quick and easy kind of like blackra1n. Anyways, thanks I’ll make sure to donate to the website (jbme.com is a helleva lot cheaper than getting it fixed at a cellphone store).

It worked on my iPhone G running iOS 4.0.1!

Edwina August 6, 2010

I currently am running a jailbroken iPhone 3G on 3.1.2, is it wise for me to use jailbreakme to update my phone to 4.0.1 while keeping it jailbroken?

Shyam August 4, 2010

I had tough time trying to get jailbreakme running on my iPhone 3gs with iOS 4 (never jailbroken before). everytime i open jailbreakme.com on iphone and slide to jailbreak, safari simply crashes. i tried with modmyi mirror too. i also tried all the other methods like opening the pdf and mailing the same. etc. and cleared safari cache, history. all… nothing worked. ATLAST. i got the solution, simply upgrade the iOS to iOS 4.0.1 and factory reset. then jailbreakme.com worked charm. no issues. and unlock was very quick also appsync for cracked IPA apps. all well now.

    Meg August 5, 2010

    I had this same problem and cant fix it 🙁 I did jail break my phone. It’s a 3GS as well. I updated it last night to put all my previous music on it and get my old contacts, which it restored the phone to original settings. Now I am trying to re-jailbreak it and I cant. I have tried resetting the phone, deleting the cookies, caches, and history. Any suggestions??

    DARENIUM August 7, 2010

    thanks Shyam – i followed ur advice and it worked thanks thanks

    Siddharth August 8, 2010

    Hey Shyam,
    Thanks a lot for the tip. I was facing the same problem and tried your solution but safari still crashes. The funny thing is, I was one iOS4.0 and successfully jail-broke it, then decided to update to 4.0.1, and had to re do the jailbreak because the update made cydia disappear.

    Now everytime I go to jailbreakme.com it crashes as soon as the download finishes. Any ideas? anyone?

vincent August 2, 2010

can you re jailbreak with this? if its possible .. then how? o-o

    Luis August 2, 2010

    I tried that, it actually said it might be harmfull to re-jailbreak.

    So my advice… dont try it =P
