After a long wait, Comex released JailbreakMe 3.0. And now a huge number of iOS devices have already utilised the hack.
The jailbreaking method, which simply requires a user visit a website and press a button, is aimed at jaibreaking iOS devices running version 4.3.3, as well as being the first jailbreak available for Apple’s iPad 2.
With experts warning that the same method Comex uses could also be used in a malicious context, it was only a matter of time until Apple looked to plug the PDF exploit that the jailbreak relies on….
JailbreakMe 3.0 has garnered some serious attention over the last 48 hours. The last report we heard was that the site had been visited over a million times, and the PDF exploit had been downloaded over 500,000 times.
The exploit must have also grabbed the attention of Germany’s Information Security team, because the group just issued a country-wide warning for all iOS products. The Mobile Safari vulnerability exposed by Comex in his new jailbreak tool has really made some folks nervous…
Today, a lot of people on Twitter were reaching out to Comex because, after using JailbreakMe 3.0, their Camera Connection Kit for their iPad no longer worked. Comex addressed this issue by saying “Okay, there is a known issue with the Camera Connection Kit and JailbreakMe.”.
A minute later he also said “…It makes me feel bad to ignore peoples’ emails, but last night I was sort of flooded with them.” About 5 hours later, Comex also tweeted that the reason it didn’t work is because he broke “Invalid Checksum”…
With over 500,000 iDevices jailbroken with JailbreakMe Saffron since last night, can you imagine if Comex made $1 for each of these devices? Yes, he’d probably be flying first class to some Caribbean island by now.
But let’s be realistic, not everyone would want to pay for a jailbreak, even if it was as low as one dollar. Truth is, most people probably don’t even know they can donate to Comex, which is why we thought it was our duty to let everyone know that they can…
Talk about a hit! iOS jailbreak developer Chpwn just tweeted that JailbreakMe, which was released about 10 hours ago, has already been used to jailbreak 500,000 devices, including iPhones, iPads, and iPods. Also according to Chpwn, the website www.JailbreakMe.com has seen over 1,000,000 visitors in its short time online since Saffron was released.
I knew people had been waiting for JailbreakMe 3.0 to be released for a while, but the success of this jailbreak really shatters my expectations, and probably Comex’s as well…
JailbreakMe 3.0 recently went live for all iDevices on iOS 4.3.3, and Comex’s PDF exploit is the first to successfully jailbreak the iPad 2.
Although the process of jailbreaking with JailbreakMe is incredibly easy, many of you probably still have questions concerning the userland jailbreak. The iPhone Dev Team has put together a helpful FAQ outlining the details behind JailbreakMe 3.0…
Now that you are finally able to hack Apple’s latest tablet with JailbreakMe 3.0, what’s your next move? For starters, you may want to consider closing that hole that Comex’s exploit used to break into your iDevice. Think about this:
JailbreakMe 3.0 is extremely easy to use. You simply navigate to a website on your iDevice, and within a few screen taps you’re jailbroken. But if Comex can design web software that can gain root-level access to your iDevice so easily, why couldn’t someone else?
After weeks of anticipation, the long awaited JailbreakMe jailbreak by Comex is now out and available for everyone to use. As always, JailbreakMe is dead simple to use and doesn’t even require a tutorial but we’ll do it anyway for those that are new to jailbreaking and need to be reassured.
As noted before, JailbreakMe Saffron (its code name) will only be compatible with iOS 4.3 devices and newer, including the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPad 2, and iPod Touch. Support for older firmwares will come later.
In this guide, we will show you how to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using JailbreakMe…
It’s finally here, folks! Comex has released the highly anticipated JailbreakMe 3.0, code named Saffron. The web-based jailbreak works on all iDevices, including the iPad 2, on iOS 4.3.3, and iOS 4.3.3 only for the time being.
This userland jailbreak is super easy to perform straight on your iDevice, and Comex’s PDF exploit will give you an untethered jailbreak for the iPad 2 via Mobile Safari.
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.
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!
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.
The JailbreakMe website just got updated again, this time to show a sign stating “We’ll be back soon,” similar to the message Apple shows when the Online Apple Store is being updated…
