JailbreakMe Used to Jailbreak iPhone 4 20,000 Feet Above Ground

By , Jul 14, 2011

If you haven’t heard of JailbreakMe by now, you may be living under a rock. One thing you’re definitely not doing is flying in a plane, because a video has surfaced that shows an iPhone 4 being jailbroken with JailbreakMe.com from 20,000 up in the air.

The cool thing about JailbreakMe is that it allows you to jailbreak an iDevice in Safari on the device itself. All you need is an internet connection and a few seconds to let Cydia install. And thanks to the availability of internet access on most commercial airlines, we bring you JailbreakMe on a plane…

TheVexenonuploaded a video to his YouTube account of him jailbreaking his iPhone 4 with JailbreakMe 3.0. As you can see in the video, the process is very simple and straightforward, and TheVexenon’s iPhone 4 has jailbroken in under 30 seconds.

Comex must be proud when he sees video demonstrations like this of his jailbreak tool. JailbreakMe is definitely the easiest method for jailbreaking there is, and it’s neat to see people jailbreaking from the sky!

We’re going to make a challenge: Record yourself jailbreaking with JailbreakMe in creative and interesting places like this video. Then send us a link to that video on either our Twitter account or alex [at] iphonedownloadblog [dot] com. We want to see where you’re jailbreaking! Make sure it’s something creative! If it’s good enough, we may post it on the site.

        Went on a 90 min flight to Colorado I was using VWallpaper and the person behind me asked how. I told him what to do using Redsn0w and all but he said he didn’t know how to do any of this type of stuff so I told him to try Jailbreakme. So he asked me to do it for him. So I took his iPhone logged onto the planes wifi.

        Here is the fun part. I ran Jailbreakme… DUN DUN DUUUUNNNNN!

        Added the Xsellize repo and added VWallpaper for him and he was happy.
        The End no lie there.

    Thought there was no Internet access on airplanes. In Australia we get told to put our mobiles on flight mode with no data.
