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.
As we await the release of Comex’s JailbreakMe 3.0, a roundabout method has been uncovered for jailbreaking the iPad 2 on the latest version of iOS.
Comex’s jailbreak got briefly leaked online over the holiday weekend, and a hacker named Ryan Vanniekerk has put together a complex tutorial on how to use the JailbreakMe 3.0 files to set up your own web-based exploit for all iDevices running iOS 4.3.3 and below! Read More
The tension is getting harder and harder for the release of JailbreakMe. After being leaked to everyone over the weekend, we found out that JailbreakMe was officially going to be released to the public today or tomorrow.
iOS 4.3.4 is expected to be released soon because of the JailbreakMe 3.0 leak, and a lot of people are wondering if this will block the Gevey SIM from working. As we have posted previously, Apple has blocked the use of the Gevey SIM unlock in iOS 5 Beta 2.
This block also comes after Apple released an unlocked iPhone 4 in the U.S. for use on any carrier (mostly T-Mobile)… Read More
It’s been a seemingly endless saga as Comex prepares his upcoming jailbreak tool for the iPad 2. JailbreakMe 3.0 has been expected to drop any day now for the past few weeks, but several speed bumps and unexpected turns have kept the userland jailbreak from getting released.
This past weekend, JailbreakMe 3.0′s exploit was leaked online in an attempt to hurry up Comex’s official release. Some people were able to get to the download links in time (before they were pulled) and successfully jailbreak the iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.
Thanks to a string of alleged emails between Comex and MultiMediaWill (the guy that leaked JailbreakMe 3.0), the latest rumor pegs JailbreakMe’s relaunch for tomorrow… Read More
If you go to GoDaddy.com right now and do a search for the JailbreakMe.com domain name, you will get a message telling you that this domain is up for sale in an auction opened to anyone to bid on.
It shows that the site has been appraised at $316 but the current auction price is $2,500. The auction, scheduled to end on July 16, will probably go much higher than that considering the value of this domain name.
But why is JailbreakMe.com for sale, and who is selling it? Read More
Most of you know by now that Comex’s long-awaited iPad 2 jailbreak was leaked yesterday. As the hacker was putting the finishing touches on JailbreakMe 3.0, the PDF exploit was leaked to the world. Someone publicly posted the new JailbreakMe files, and the links spread around the web like wildfire.
The original story iDB heard was that a trusted beta tester leaked the files. That would have meant Comex was betrayed by someone he trusted, adding insult to injury. We have since learned that this is not what actually happened. Here’s the real story behind the iPad 2 jailbreak leak… Read More
The jailbreak scene has been extremely talkative since Comex’s iPad 2 jailbreak was leaked earlier today. Some folks jumped at the chance to install the beta version of the exploit, while others continue bashing the ones responsible for the leak.
It seems the individual(s) responsible for the leak claim they did so to encourage Comex to hurry up and release a final version. But it looks like all the leak did was create more work for the jailbreak community… Read More
After weeks of anticipation, we knew that the release of JailbreakMe was imminent. The clues and hints that Comex had left behind were just too obvious. What we didn’t expect, though, was that one of the beta testers for JailbreakMe would leak it out to the world.
Links starting popping up on several websites this morning, and by simply opening a PDF document from your device (yes, including the iPad 2), you were able to install Cydia, much like you install an app from the App Store… Read More
We know JailbreakMe is right around the corner. Comex keeps dropping hints at an imminent release but unfortunately there always seems to be bumps in the road. This time though, it appears that Comex is almost done ironing out the kinks of JailbreakMe.
If you haven’t been following the progress of the iPad 2 jailbreak, let me give you a brief history. Within days of the device launching, iDevice specialists like Comex and other members of the Dev and Chronic Dev teams had their iPad 2s hacked.
The actual jailbreak part of the process was never really an issue. It was trying to bundle the exploit into a stable, legal package that would be easy enough for the general public to use… Read More
If you go to JailbreakMe.com right now you will be greeted with a bunch of data that appears to be some logs of some sort. I have absolutely no idea what all this mean but I am hoping one of you will figure it out.
Comex, the creator of the userland jailbreak known as JailbreakMe, has developed a method for a much faster install time in his upcoming jailbreak. He has managed to get rid of Cydia’s “Reorganizing Filesystem” message by abandoning the current ‘stashing’ filesystem approach.
The advancements made in Comex’s jailbreak are expected to drastically reduce the time it takes to actually jailbreak an iDevice. Read More
We apologize if you got excited about the return of JailbreakMe today. A rumor got started this morning that claimed Comex was releasing his iPad 2 jailbreak through JailbreakMe.com this afternoon.
As it turns out, the teaser image (reportedly from Comex’s Twitter account) that started this rumor has been proved fake, and we’re back to the drawing board in terms of an iPad 2 jailbreak ETA. Read More
