Comex just gave us all a heads up that the initial launch of JailbreakMe 3.0 will only support the latest version of iOS, 4.3.3. If your iDevice is currently jailbroken or hasn’t been updated past 4.3.1 or 4.3.2, you should go ahead and do that now.

It’s expected that Comex will unveil JailbreakMe 3.0 sometime today, and he has dropped initial support for older iOS firmware versions due to time constraints.

He did say that he’ll add support for firmware all the way down to 4.2.1, but 4.3.3 will be it for the launch. If you check JailbreakMe.com, the “We’ll be back soon” note displays.

Now would also be a good time to save your SHSH blobs in case you need to downgrade iOS at a later time.

Comex is obviously working very fast to make sure that JailbreakMe 3.0’s launch goes smoothly, and we thank him for all his hard work.

Any more questions?

  • Chris

    Would it make since to upgrade to 4.3.3 and uninstall my jailbreak and jailbreak again with this?

    • Revvxz

      Yes, you should always jailbreak the latest firmware. I do anyway

    • If you’re happy with your jailbreak, then don’t worry about it. But it is wise to jailbreak the latest firmware if possible.

    • Ayden72

      It would make sense if you could spell “sense” right

    • Actually I was the first to break the news about the 4.3.3 support idb forgot to clarify that..

  • Revvxz

    FINALLY! AN OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE! D:
    Thanks Comex! I hope it was worth it though
    iOS 4.3.4 <_<

  • DarkPunz

    This will also work on 4.3.0 btw…If you’re already on 4.3.0 you just need to save your SHSH blobs.

    No need to upgrade to 4.3.3 if you don’t need to.

    • Jacob

      No it wont…?

      • ray

        it should.

  • Niceguy2010

    So just say i have Ipad 2 current on iOS 4.3.2 should i go ahead and update to iOS 4.3.3? again this is Ipad 2 not iphone alright?

    thanks

    • Revvxz

      Do it! You have nothing to lose!

      • Niceguy2010

        so i just open itune and click on UPDATE or Restore? and because the way @comex stated make me confuses he didn’t mention iphone or ipad. So just ask to make sure…

        thanks Revvxz

    • Revvxz

      Yep, just click update, but you might want to save your SHSH if you know how to.

  • Can`t wait….

  • Mick

    Perhaps a stupid question but I don’t own an iPad and I haven’t seen anything to suggest this would jailbreak any other devices so can some1 confirm or deny whether this will jailbreak any iDevice on 4.3.3 or is it purely for iPad 2.

    • Revvxz

      Purely iPad 2. This is a hardware thing.

      • Niceguy2010

        yeah i already save my shsh for 4.3.3 thanks Revvxz
        will update now…

      • Mick

        Thanks for the reply !

      • Joe

        The article clearly says ‘iDevices’ he also said he’ll be adding support in the future for 4.2.1. The iPad shipped day 1 with 4.3 so clearly this will work on other devices

      • Revvxz

        You sure? Comex said iPad 2…

      • themachomidget

        You are completely wrong, this is a pdj injection that allows filesystem access…
        There is no exploit of the A5 hardware, just a PDF bug in the software that allows filesystem access.
        If he changes the paths and such, it can be adapted to other devices and maybe even ios5 if apple has not patched it in their second beta.

    • Joe

      No. Lol. Clearly it will work for iPad 2 but it also looks like it will work for other devices. I can’t confirm it other than the evidence I put before. The strongest case being iPad 2 launched w 4.3 so the 4.2.1 support has to be for some other device

      • Mick

        If I had an iPad I might have know that lol but as I don’t I tend to mainly stick to keeping up on iPhone news, I must admit, I would be happy to try this on my iPhone 4 when I need to redo it rather than all the physical button pressing that comes with Redsnow (I just know 1 day the home button will break lol)

  • Ethan

    This news make me refresh jailbreakme.com every 2 mins now. Thanks a million @Comex

  • shan

    The old jbm site is back up..guess it’s a matter of time 🙂

  • Moonoodle

    IPad ready and waiting, it already came with 4.3.3 can’t wait to tweak it how I want it. Cheers COMEX…… XD

  • Nico

    What about iOS 4.2.7 or 4.2.8

  • Fietzy

    So nothing for 4.3 great!! It’s been doin my head waiting for this only to just now find out no support for 4.3!!! F@$k!! Thanks for the build up! Wot a let down..

    • Mick

      Can you not just update to 4.3.3, is that such a problem? There were bug fixes from 4.3 up anyway that, for once, actually warranted updating lol

      • Fietzy

        Yes it is a problem or I would have!! My computer won’t let me! Any suggestions??

      • Fietzy

        Na I can’t mate, computer not let’n me! Any suggestions?

    • rdqronos

      Check your hosts file… otherwise, I don’t see any reason your computer wouldn’t let you update.

  • lalu

    Cant wait till this comes out so i don’t have to do the DFU things i am just going to use my itunes to restore the phone it gets faster and jailbreak it again haha this is great 🙂

    DID YOU GUYS KNOW YOU CAN USE IPHONE 3GS ON AT&T WITHOUT A DATA PLAN
    I AM DOING IT FROM LIKE 3 MONTHS NOW HAHA 🙂

  • Coach

    Why arent people you using redsn0w to jailbreak 4.3.3 iphones?

    • Joe

      I personally never liked redsn0w or any of the tools put out by the dev team. I always liked the releases by geohot and the chronic dev team. Comex really seems to have his stuff together and that’s why I’m waiting for jailbreakme before upgrading from 4.2.1

      • Coach

        Oh well I guess I was impatient for the jailbreaks and I wanted new features from the updates. I never had any problems so I was just curious.

  • Andres

    Should I upgrade to 4.3.3 from 4.2.1? What´s the difference? I think I´m happy with my jailbreak now but I have some time to kill.

    • rdqronos

      4.3 really was a huge improvement. At this point, there really isn’t any reason you shouldn’t update. There are (now) several jailbreaks for 4.3.3, so really, the only question is if you actually give a damn to upgrade…

  • beakhand

    trying to upgrade but have a problem the ipad could not be updated this device isn’t eligible for the requested build someone please help i am on a ipad 2 4.3.2

    • Revvxz

      You sure its an iPad 2? You added some thing you shouldnt of, Or maybe your iPads from somewhere else. We need more info.

      • beakhand

        Figured it out , needed to put a # before the numbers in the hosts file worked like a charm
        Must of happened when I saved my shsh to tiny umbrella

      • Revvxz

        Oh its because you have ‘Get shsh or something from cydia’ checked. Its trying to GetCall cydia but its not permitted.

  • Sin

    So this Jailbreak will work on the iPhone 4 running 4.3.3?

    • Binary-Stalker

      It should.

  • rho

    wait my itouch 4g just says 4.3 (8F190)
    will it work too? or no?

    • Binary-Stalker

      No. Just update to 4.3.3.

  • Felipe

    Anyone type http://www.jailbreakme.com/star.
    What is this?

    • Tom

      That was from the previous jailbreak after the iPhone 4 was released in 2010. Unless you are trying to jailbreak iOS 4.01, it is of no use.

  • Roger

    One question. My iPhone is jailbroken on 4.2.1 right now, say I wanna upgrade to 4.3.3 and jailbreak again is there a way to save everything I have so that when I re-jailbreak I will have everything the way it was before? Thanks.

    • Binary-Stalker

      Get PkgBackup.

      It can be cracked as well, but find the source yourself.

  • AMB

    Any idea on whether or not this works with older devices? Like the iTouch 2G?

    • Binary-Stalker

      iPod 2G is capped at 4.2.1, so it should, but not initially.

  • Binary-Stalker

    20 Minutes until the day is over, 20 minutes to release it today. Almost here, guys!

  • green_comet

    I can’t see it happening, at least not this week.

    • Erick

      I hope it comes out today plz comex put the jailbreak today at 12:00 pm plz

  • SuNcHe

    Where is it??? noooo!!!!

  • SuNcHe

    may be Sunday is Funday?

  • Kuipo

    Ok people, just go to bed and get a good nights sleep and check back tomorrow! It won’t kill you if you just wait a few extra hours would it??

  • Ungka

  • Ballas

    Site back up, but unable to download file error

    • Tom

      I installed successfully on 2 iPad 2’s (ATT 3G). If you have a problem now, it could be due to server overload now that the word is out.

  • Garbage

    Just like I thought, doesn’t work at all. Lovely

    • Tom

      Worked fine for me on 2 iPad 2’s (ATT 3G on iOS 4.3.3). Servers may be overloaded now. Be patient! 🙂

  • Ballas

    This should work on a IPAD 2 – 4.3.3 WiFi, right?

  • Ballas

    When trying to Jailbreak, I get a Wrong Connection type error on my IPAD 2 – 4.3.3 WiFi, this only for 3 G devices???

  • Ballas

    Restart fixed it 😉

  • monkers

    all working on IPad 2 4.3.3, installs Cydia np. I have a jailbroken device. HURRAH

  • ian

    How about iPhone 3G Firmware 4.2.1 ? is there any possibility that comex would add iPhone 3G on the lists?

  • Rocky

    How do you upgrade to 4.3.3 ? I’m currently on 4.2.1 Wanting to jailbreak

  • Steven
