Official: iPhone 4 Jailbreak Released By iPhone Dev Team
Just this past week, the Library of Congress made it legal, @comex and @MuscleNerd showed that the jailbreak was successful, and just earlier today comex told us it was ready to be released in an interview. Now, Comex and company have finally delivered the much anticipated jailbreak to the fourth iteration of the iPhone. According to their new page which is, JailbreakMe, the hack works right on your iDevice (that includes iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G, iPad, iPod Touch) by utilizing the handset’s Safari browser to reportedly break into most iOS devices. The servers as of right now are currently getting overloaded pretty badly and only some people have reported the jailbreak process going through but rest assured it will get your iDevice jailbroken!
All you have to do is to go to the website http://jailbreakme.com on your iOS device and follow the instructions. Let the file download and do it’s thing and once it is finished with its process, you should be jailbroken. 9to5mac also clarified “We can verify that this jailbreak is meant to run on all iOS devices including iPad and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0 and 4.01. It will not work on iOS devices running iOS 4.1 beta,” so if you are running iOS 4.1 beta, go ahead and downgrade to stock if you want to be jailbroken.
As mentioned before, the servers are experiencing a high amount of traffic and many users are experiencing purple screen freezes and other issues. We would recommend waiting to jailbreak your iDevice because you have to realize that this process CAN brick your device if not done properly. Engadget made a video showing some of the issues they were having while trying to jailbreak their iPhone 4. You can check this video out below:
Either way though, the long haul is over and the jailbreak is still released. Although we recommend waiting we know some of you are already waiting for the process to finish on your iDevice hoping that your iDevice doesn’t freeze. Let us know if you have successfully jailbroken your iDevice or just tell us about your experience in general with the process in the comments below. We will post an update when the issues have cleared up and we have gotten a chance to jailbreak our own iDevices so don’t forget to follow us onTwitter and/or subscribe to our RSS feed for more news and info on the topic.
