There’s a new jailbreak in town and its name is JailbreakMe. Jailbreak me will jailbreak your iPad running iOS 3.2.1 or lower in less time than it takes to say it.

JailbreakMe is what we call a browser-based userland jailbreak. It can be done directly from your iPad and doesn’t require a restore or anything like that. This tutorial will show you how to jailbreak your iPad 3.1.2 using JailbreakMe.

Step 1: Make sure that you have backed up your iPad in iTunes. If something goes wrong, you can always restore.

Step 2: On your iPad, go to

Step 3: Slide the “Slide to Jailbreak” thinggy and let JailbreakMe work its magic.

Step 4: After a minute or so, you will get a pop up saying that Cydia was installed on your iPad.

Step 5: Reboot. Done!

Wasn’t that easy?

    I just tried this on my iPad that I freshly restored from iTunes and all it does is freak out the screen and reboot. It doesn’t say anything after the reboot or there’s no Cydia icon. Can someone help?

  • Hey Thien

    I just tried JailbreakMe again an couldn’t get it to work. I think they might be working on updating it or something. Try again later or tomorrow.

  • Charlotte

    When i get to the purple screen it’s saying I need to upgrade on iTunes before using jailbreak but there’s no upgrades and I don’t know how to do it?!! It’s saying I need 4.0.1??

  • Hey Charlotte,

    Strange. There is no 4.0.1 for iPad. What is your firmware version on your iPad. You can find out by going to Settings > General > About.


  • OptimusGREEN

    Yeah It says that with my iPad too, must update via iTunes although I know that Im on the latest which I’ve found out since that this isn’t jailbreakable (3.2.2) so instead of it saying this it acts as if it’s an out of date iPhone lol. Anyway, is it true that I can downgrade to 3.2.1?

    • You can downgrade if you have your SHSH blobs on file.

  • Ben Parkinson

    done everything right but then when your on Cydia where do you go to download apps??? my itouch is technically half jailbroken but nothing on it

    thank s

    • Open Cydia, and either search for apps or go to “Changes” where it will show the latest applications or mods added to Cydia.
