JailbreakMe now available, jailbreak the iPad 2, iPad, iPhone and iPod touch on iOS 4.3.3

That’s right folks, the waiting is now over -- JailbreakMe has now gone officially live, and the iPad 2 jailbreak we've been waiting for since March is finally here. Even better, JailbreakMe also supports the iPhone, original iPad, and the iPod touch runinng iOS 4.3.3. (And yes, it will also work on the Verizon iPhone running iOS 4.2.6 to 4.2.8.)

JailbreakMe is the easiest way to free your device. Experience iOS as it could be, fully customizable, themeable, and with every tweak you could possibly imagine. Safe and completely reversible (just restore in iTunes), jailbreaking gives you control over the device you own. It only takes a minute or two, and as always, it's completely free. Please make an iTunes backup before jailbreaking.

There are a few caveats, however, as the Dev-Team Blog points out:

Will I permanently lose the jailbreak if I need to restore my device? For all except the iPad2, saving your SHSH blobs should let you always restore your device to iOS versions where this jailbreak works. The iPad2 is a little more complicated. If you have a wifi-only iPad2 and saved SHSH blobs, you’re in good shape. But if you have the GSM or CDMA iPad2, you won’t be able to restore to 4.3.3 or lower once Apple stops signing its baseband. There are a few ideas that might work to get around this limitation, but for now it’s best to assume there’s no going back to 4.3.3 once 4.3.4 is out for iPad2 GSM or CDMA owners.

I heard this new unionfs stuff is dangerous? Define dangerous :) Seriously though, although unionfs is a huge improvement to the install time of the jailbreak, it is brand new code and there is the possibility something will go wrong. Just keep regular backups of your media and content and you should be fine. If there are any problems, they should appear within the first few days, so hold off and let “everyone else” test the waters if you’d like.

If you're new to Jailbreak, check out our Jailbreak starter guide and if you need extra help, head on over to our Jailbreak forums.

Now excuse me while I run off and Jailbreak my iPad 2...

JailbreakMe now available, jailbreak the iPad 2, iPad, iPhone and iPod touch on iOS 4.3.3


Is only for iOS devices running 4.3.3, or iOS devices upto 4.3.3? Essentially asking if I can jailbreak my Verizon iPhone 4 running 4.2.8....

I went to the site before I read this post and went through with the jailbreak. I have a Verizon iPhone on 4.2.7. When I go into cydia and click on something such as featured, it does not pull anything up. The only options are home and reload and the reload does nothing.
It does the same thing on frequently asked questions. Not sure If I did something wrong here

Woo Hoo!!! can hardly wait t get home to jb my new iPad 2. Can someone please tell me, in order to use MyWi (on my phone) to take advantage of my phone's 3G for my iPad do I need to have a sim in my iPad?

No you dont but unfortunately I cant get MyWi from Cydia for some reason on my iPhone 4 jailbroken with jailbreakme.

Thanks! I've read all the instructions but want to be sure: do I need to keep my iPad plugged into iTunes while I do the JB or is that strictly for backup? My "closet" (office) does not get wifi so I have to go to another area to get onto safari - I cannot wait until I get home to jb my iPad I HAVE to do it now!! ;-)

JBing my iPad took all of 10 seconds! Wow! You are amazing! Now I just have to wait for an SMS app (please please please make biteSMS work on the iPad - it's the best SMS app!!!). Unfortunaltey not many Cydia apps are compatible with iPad yet but it's early, hopefully they'll catch up soon!

I tried it and Cydia starts installing then disappears from my screen. I am running 4.3.3 and I have baseband 4.10.1

I have a jail broken iPad and everything was fine but, I must have done something wrong because when I try to open Cydia the screen starts to load and then closes and won't let me access Cydia. Can anyone help? Do I need an update or.....
