While the release of JailbreakMe 3.0 has resulted in jubilation amongst most users, it has curiously prompted a national panic in Germany, where a country-wide warning for all iOS products has been issued by Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security.
Just a day after the much-anticipated JailbreakMe 3.0 website went live and over 1,000,000 iOS devices took advantage of the web-based hack, Apple has confirmed it will kill the exploit in an upcoming software update.
After months of waiting, Comex and the iPhone Dev Team have finally released JailbreakMe v3, allowing any iOS device running iOS 4.3.3 to be jailbroken just by visiting a simple web page.
Even though this is as simple as jailbreaks get, though, there’s still stuff that can go wrong, so we’ve put together this handy guide for any would-be jailbreakers. Here’s how to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch… the right way.
While the release of JailbreakMe 3.0 is expected to be imminent, those of you struggling to wait any longer can now set up your own web-based jailbreak for all devices running iOS 4.3.3 and below. Here’s how!
JailbreakMe, undoubtedly the easiest method of jailbreaking an iOS device, is set to return imminently with version 3.0 — the all-purpose jailbreak for any device, including the iPad 2, running iOS 4.3.3 and below. Comex has updated the site for the second time in the past week, leading some to speculate the relaunch of the new service will be today.
For a few minutes this morning, a working version of Comex’s much anticipated Jailbreakme 3.0 hack was leaked to the web, allowing users who visited a special site on MobileSafari to jailbreak their iPad 2s running iOS 4.3.3.
The leak’s since been taken down, but it was confirmed to work by multiple users to be a working jailbreak, and Cydia is now working on multiple iPad 2s through the userland exploit.
Undoubtedly the most simple jailbreak solution to ever be available for the iPhone is the JailbreakMe online exploit from Comex. Apple quickly patched this hack shortly after its release, but Comex has updated the JailbreakMe page with a teaser its upcoming relaunch… reminding people that this was a jailbreak a LONG time in the making.
Jailbreak artist Comex has been hinting at plans to dust off Jailbreakme.com for a while now, allowing users on compatible iOS devices to jailbreak their systems just by loading the page in Mobile Safari. But what devices will be supported?
All of them running iOS 4.2.1 to iOS 4.3.3, for one. The iPad 2 for another. Hoorah!
