JailbreakMe is Safe Again

By , Oct 8, 2011


Yesterday the news broke that JailbreakMe.com had been sold to an unknown person, creating a bit of panic in the jailbreak community after a few prominent iOS hackers had suggested not to use the site anymore for security reasons.

As it turns out, JailbreakMe.com is now a safe place again, thanks to saurik, who apparently purchased the domain name from the previous owner…

In a series of tweets, Saurik explains:

Yesterday, we learned that jailbreakme.com was sold in July; today, I talked with the new owner: he is actually very likable and awesome. ;P

…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

Everything is back to normal. It is completely safe to use JailbreakMe to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad on iOS 4.3.3.

Now we’re just hoping for a userland exploit for iOS 5!

WTF???? this is the most upseting thing i heard since the passing of mr jobs.

    • BLTKOR

      btw for those who do not know thes asshole crash the funerals of dead american soldiers and shout you will go to hell and god hates america. i cant belive tht these kind of things are allowed in the us. verry upsetting

      • Masters

        They had his funeral yesterday.

      • Masters

        I don’t like those people for those words either but I think the funeral was yesterday.

      • BLTKOR

        yesterday ?? in the uk they its on the news that his funeral will be private this was only 1 hour ago.. also i think those west bro asshole said that they will picket the public event so all is ok i guess.

        Just wanted to point out we have free speech and ability to do whatever we want at a funeral (a certain distance away of course) in the USA. Not saying it’s right, but the USA doesn’t have a right to ban free speech.

        And they can scream people are going to hell all they want, God doesn’t exactly consider that a kind deed… plus it benefits literally no one, since the dude’s dead. Even in religion logic has a place, but apparently these people have no use for such a “satanic” principles such as logic.

      • BLTKOR

        well ok but im sure if anyone got infront of the president and shouted i hate blacks of niggers then that will be stooped not allowed. freedom of speech is one thing but insults and racism is another. in my opinion anyway as in the uk racism is not allowed you cannot have a i hate niggers protest in the street.

      • BIG

        your saying got a fallacy, there is nothing related with racism and the right of free speech.

    If only if I knew how to downgrade my iPad 2… :(

  • Jon

    Thanks Saurik! Your a life saver!!!

  • Terry

    I need to know how to downgrade my iPad to 4.3.3 I have 4.3.5 Ruoght now.

    • rdqronos

      Can’t.
      The iPad 2 isn’t exploitable with limera1n, thus, you can’t get kicked out of recovery mode by tinyumbrella when you error out.

  • Joel

    You know seems like saurik has never really spent much time with himself. I mean whenever we hang out I think he’s alright, but awesome I dunno…

    • The Reaper

      I’m sorry. What?

  • 2035 A.D

    Saurik is the king! He does all this stuff to benefit iPhone users and make people happy, when really, he doesn’t have to.
    Keep it up dude!

  • Xavier

    Can we expect an untethered jailbreak for ipad2 this time round?

  • http://idownloadblog.com/ The iOS guy

    Saurik should be invited to his funeral, he made (and makes) apple millions (exept for installous which I don’t use)

  • Howard Ellacott

    How come it shows up as a dangerous red site on McAfee SiteAdvisor?

  • Nick Dapolito

    Hopefully the iOS jailbreak will be compatible with iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1
