Many of you who tried to jailbreak your iPhone using JailbreakMe have encountered this issue where the phone gets stuck on the purple screen and nothing happens. At first we thought JailbreakMe was down or something but the problem actually comes from a cache issue on your iPhone!
The fix is pretty simple:
- Go to Settings > Safari > Clear History, Clear Cookies, Clear Cache
- Reboot your iPhone
- Try JailbreakMe.com again
If it still doesn’t work, go through this cleaning process again but this time use http://jailbreakme.modmyi.com instead of JailbreakMe.com.
It worked great for me and many others. Tell us how it works for you.
