JailbreakMe.com is Dead

By , Oct 7, 2011

JailbreakMe, the wildly popular web-based jailbreak tool created by comex, is no more. Comex recently announced that he had been hired by Apple, and the JailbreakMe.com domain has been owned by a third party for quite some time.

MuscleNerd, frontman for the Dev Team, has warned jailbreakers to stay clear of JailbreakMe.com from now on…

The owner of the JailbreakMe.com, ConceitedApps, has sold the domain in an attempt to make some quick cash. If you visit the site right now, you’ll notice that a tribute for Steve Jobs is displayed. Comex and MuscleNerd have both cautioned that JailbreakMe could potentially be used for malicious purposes.

Instead, Jailbreaks.me will become the new home for jailbreakers online.

JailbreakMe 3.0 was the first tool capable of jailbreaking the iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3. Comex’s jailbreak will soon be obsolete when iOS 5 is released to the public. The Chronic Dev Team is working on an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and all other iDevices on iOS 5. We’ll keep you updated on their findings as more develops.

It’s currently unclear if comex’s untethered jailbreak will be ported to Jailbreaks.me.

RIP JailbreakMe.

  • Eddie

    First they announce the 4s, then steve jobs dies, now the easiest way to jailbreak is gone. Really bad week for iPhone owners

    • TC

      How is the announcement of the 4S bad?

    • tc

      Why even comment on this blog at all with comments such as this?

    • David

      I don’t think you fully understand jailbreaking and the community behind it, now do you?

  • http://www.idownloadblog.com Sebastien

    Fixed. Sorry about that.

    • Justin

      No need to be sorry, just trying to help. Now that it’s fixed, wish I could delete my post. If only there was someone that had power to do that….

  • Vince

    I wonder if apple is the third party that bought the domain. It would make fence to buy it and an easy way of shutting it down

    • Vince

      Sence not fence

      • Vance

        Vince,

        Try again and this time use a dictionary, to help you spell “sense” ;-)

    Is it REALLY necessary to jailbreak? I’ve used my iPhone for the last 2 years with absolutely no need to jailbreak it. Why fucking bother? You guys are pathetic.

    • Alex

      Trollololol, trollolol, trollol, trollololololol!

    • Adam

      Wow, you honestly used a standard iPhone for TWO years?!
      How boring, I’m sorry to hear that.

      haha this kid is so lame

    • Silva

      That’s what I used to think as well, before I eventually ended up jailbreaking due to boredom & curiosity. Once I did, I had a browse through all tweaks/themes/addons/etc. & never looked back. I guess I was just as naive as u are at this time.

    Ok..Im Conffused.. When Will Jailbreakme Be Back Too Download.?

  • Kjeldor

    off topic: I always get error 1 when restoring to stock firmware 4.3.5 or 4.3.3. Why? I did everything on google.

    Does my baseband revert back coming from ios5 gm? im trying to install 4.3.3 stock or 4.3.5 from apple.

    I read somewhere that apple can restore the firmware back coming from the beta…

    I use GEVEY sim so I need to revert back my modem firmware… I got too excited and installed the ios5 gm without using snowbreeze to preserve my baseband

    • Kjeldor

      it worked! now my baseband is back! thanks guys!

  • Osmar Reis

    I think it will not take long to put another version of jailbreakme.com

  • babe

    just copy jailbreakme.com/saffron/_ files. And create http server on local computer using apache. Put all jailbreakme files on public_html folder, use the wifi to get ip address.
    Now you can open the pdf on http local computer for open it.

    …and tonight, jailbreakme.com was transferred to me (convenient, as I host the site ;P); so, going forward, we no longer need to worry! :D
