Do you have an iPhone or an iPod touch that you’ve been wanting to jailbreak but are worried it’s too complicated or fear you’ll perform the process incorrectly and ruin your device? Fear not, Comex’s new jailbreak method, JailbreakMe 2.0, will jailbreak all iDevices (iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches) on Apple firmware 4.0.1 and below in just a few very simple steps and requires absolutely no technical knowledge. This method doesn’t require your iDevice to be connected to a PC or Mac and will even work on the newly released iPhone 4!
How it’s done
To jailbreak your device, simply open Mobile Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and and type “Jailbreakme.com” into the address bar. This will take you to the mobile version of the JailbreakMe website. Congratulations, you’ve just completed the most difficult step in the process. Once on the JailbreakMe page, all you have to do is slide the “slide to jailbreak” bar to the right and JailbreakMe will automatically Jailbreak your device. A progress screen should pop up informing you that the web application is downloading. Shortly after, the screen should say “Jailbreaking…” When the process is complete, you’ll see the following message: “Cydia has been added to the home screen. Have fun!”
That’s it. You’re done. You should now have the Cydia app on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad’s home screen. Open this app to browse all kinds of Jailbreak apps and tweaks. If you encountered any problems while performing this jailbreak or the JailbreakMe page wouldn’t load, simply restart your device and try again in a few minutes.
Is this legal?
Yes! Thanks to a new DMCA exemption which was recently approved, jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or any other mobile device is perfectly legal! However, please be aware that Apple will still continue to release firmwares designed to prevent jailbreaking your device. Also, modifying your iDevice will still void any Apple warranty, although you can restore with itunes in order to undo any software modification.
