The bad ones is that your iPhone and iPad and iPod Touch is at risk. Bad guys can use the same vulnerability to take control of your device and do whatever they want with it.

Apple will fix it in iOS 4.3.4 firmware some day. Fortunately Comex has already released a patch for his JailbreakMe 3.0 exploit to protect already jailbroken devices from any malicious use of the exploit.

The package called 'PDF Patcher 2' can be downloaded and installed from Cydia. To jailbreak please use our step-by-step instructions.

New jailbreak will be released soon on Jailbreakme.com


Comex's jailbreak based on new PDF exploit was unofficially leaked recently. It looks like it will be released quite soon. Currently Jailbreakme.com shows the "coming soon" yellow sticky, that looks like the sticky Apple puts on its store right before new products hit the virtual shelves.

The new jailbreak is mostly for Apple iPad 2 users, because all other devices can be jailbroken with existing tools.

iPad 2 jailbreak has been stolen and published


Comex's jailbreak for the iPad 2 has been stolen from secret website and later published on different sites. The jailbreak uses a PDF exploit similar to how JailbreakMe worked in the past.

User AppReviewerWill even posted a video showing working iPad 2 jailbreak on iOS 4.3. The video is currently unavailable.

This is quite sad, because now Apple is aware of the vulnerability and will probably release the fixed iOS 4.3.4. If now this will be fixed in iOS 5 for sure.

We strongly suggest that you wait for official release by Comex. Now you should just save your SHSH blobs using tinyumbrella utility.

How to upgrade to iOS 5 without developer account


Before you even start thinking about it -

  • you do it at your own risk
  • you will probably loose warranty
  • you cant go back to iOS 4.x once you go to iOS 5
  • Apple will probably fix this soon.

The exploit uses a combination of Voiceover and the pull down notifications to activate the phone. The user that found this exploit says the device continues to work after restarts (so you won’t need to activate it every time you restart). The steps are:

iOS 5 is already jailbroken

ios5-jail-3 ios5-jail-2

MuscleNerd has announced in Twitter that iOS 5 has been successfully jailbroken using old good LimeRa1n exploit. Cydia and SSH is working without any problems.

iOS5 jailbroken on ipt4g: http://is.gd/7GxIcK http://is.gd/BwPvfh via limera1n + tethered boot..not too many surprises :)

Cydia works fine too from quick testing (I installed SSH) http://is.gd/oADWEo

It is currently tethered, that means jailbreak is gone after reboot. Hopefully i0n1c will be able to port his untether to iOS 5. Anyway great news for all jailbreakers!

Untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2 will be available soon


I0n1c has confirmed that his untethered jailbreak exploit is still working for iOS 4.3.2. This is good news for all jailbreakers.

Here are his recent tweets:

Apple has been nice. I just verified that the untether vulnerability is not fixed in iOS 4.3.2 - my Ipad 1 is running untethered jailbroken

Of course the public untether binaries will not work with iOS 4.3.2 - I have to generate new untether binaries with new dyld/kernel offsets

I won't be able to create all the untether binaries before sunday, because I will be on planes, ...

The dev-team cannot produce the untether binaries on their own, because they don't have the source code to the untether exploit.

Well from what I hear lots of the problems people had with 4.3.1 (like wifi, 3g, ...) are gone in 4.3.2

The new version of iOS 4.3.2 jailbreak tools RedSn0w and PwnageTool will be released by the iPhone Dev-Team quite soon.

Untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 is almost ready

Hacker I0nic has given his untether exploit for the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak to the iPhone Dev-Team. They will perform testing and integrate it into their jailbreak utilities - redsn0w and pwnagetool. This untethered jailbreak will probably work for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iPad.

The iphone-dev-team is already beta-testing the untether. So it is up to them to give you your tool of choice.

Please don't bother the dev-team now. The deal is: if the beta test is successfull, they are free to do whatever they want with it.

I0nic recently demonstrated his jailbreak on iPod Touch 4G. I hope to get iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak soon.

iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak news: Apple closed comex kernel exploit

Comex, famous iPhone hacker, tweeted today that the kernel exploit for jailbreak he had found long ago was closed by Apple in recent iOS 4.3.1. This exploit could be used to jailbreak iPad 2.

As noticed by @0naj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.

I try not to be paranoid, but it is really hard to explain this as anything but a leak.

The funny thing is that my "new" kernel exploit is actually the kernel exploit used by JailbreakMe 2.0. It was never properly fixed.

It stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3, but was magically found in time for 4.3.1. well, go go @MuscleNerd and @i0n1c I guess

This is not good news. However we have recently seen working untethered jailbreak video. There are other vulnerabilities in iOS 4.3.1.

Apple disabled jailbreak detection API in iOS 4.2

jailbreak API

Apple has reportedly disabled its jailbreak detection API through iOS 4.2 software update. The API helped third-party mobile device management (MDM) applications to check for unauthorized modifications of system files. Apple's jailbreak detection API provided MDM applications direct access to iOS system information and was able to ask the operating system directly if it had been jailbroken. Jailbreak exploits typically change a number of operating system files, and exploit one or another low-level OS features to let users directly load their own or third-party applications.
