Last Sunday, the Dev-Team released software that will allow you to easily jailbreak any device running iOS4 with jailbreakme.com. It uses a browser-based installation method that is the easiest jailbreak we’ve ever seen. Dev-Team member Comex designed the exploit using an unknown exploit. In order to jailbreak your iDevice, he sends a PDF with a specific corrupted font to your device… that corrupted font actually break through the software and allows access to run executable code. Pretty cool.
Could someone else figure out this exploit and use it for nefarious purposes? Sure… but Apple will surely have a fix in the very near future so nothing like that will happen. That also means that jailbreakme.com’s current methods will no longer work. Comex has said he’ll probably do it via the USB cable for the next one… to make it a little more difficult for Apple to patch it. Perfect.
Anyways, after installing the jailbreak, all you need to do is install Ultrasn0w and you’re all set. The latest version of Ultrasn0w as developed by Dev-Team members PlanetBeing and MuscleNerd. Ultrasn0w version 1.0-1 will unlock any iDevice running iOS4 from the default iPhone software without any additional strings attached. Honestly, this unlock is the best we’ve seen yet and will probably remain the easiest unlock for a long time to come.
If you need someone to jailbreak and unlock your iDevice in Denver, just give us a call. We’ll do it for $20 — that’s half of what we used to charge because the Dev-Team made it much easier. Remember… we’re not selling the software; it’s freely available at jailbreakme.com.
Please, backup your device before you ever attempt any sort of system modification like the jailbreak or unlock. The Dev-Team does a great job at squashing bugs before they release the software, but no one’s perfect… so backup!
