The long-awaited relaunch of the JailbreakMe exploit from Comex finally went live yesterday, and in one day alone, the service hacked a staggering 1,000,000 devices.
It’s no wonder the jailbreak has been popular. It is undoubtedly the easiest method of breaking into your iOS device, with no need for a computer or any real technical prowess. Users simply have to navigate to the JailbreakMe website within Safari on their device and start the process, which performs its magic incredibly quickly.
One iPhone Dev-Team member announced on Twitter less than a day after the service went live that over 1,000,000 devices had already been jailbroken.
It’s an impressive figure, and indicates the service has already been utilized by over one fifth of the iOS jailbreaking community. Estimates suggest that around three to five percent of the total iOS market have hacked their devices, and with 1,000,000 devices already jailbroken by JailbreakMe 3.0, the service has reached one percent of the market.
