The JailbreakMe.com (http://www.jailbreakme.com/) website has returned to offer an entirely browser-based jailbreak tool for iOS devices including (for the first time) the iPad 2.

http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2011/07/jailbreakme.jpg

(http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2011/07/jailbreakme.jpg)
Jailbreaking is a process by which Apple's iOS devices can be opened up to allow for installation of non-Apple-approved applications, customizations and file access. Apple officially disapproves of jailbreaking and has even warned users (http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3743) that these unauthorized modifications can cause "instability, disruption of services, and compromised security." Still, a large jailbreak community has emerged over the years since the iPhone's introduction.

A Dev-Team blog post (http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/7295551750/jailbreakme-times-3) outlines the supported configurations for JailbreakMe:- iPad1: 4.3 through 4.3.3
- iPad2: 4.3.3
- iPhoneGS: 4.3 through 4.3.3
- iPhone4: 4.3 through 4.3.3
- iPhone4-CDMA: 4.2.6 through 4.2.8
- iPod touch 3g: 4.3, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
- iPod touch 4g: 4.3 through 4.3.3The JailbreakMe site is unique in that it allows users to jailbreak their devices entirely using the Safari browser and without downloading any additional software. The site itself also offers a Frequently Asked Questions (http://www.jailbreakme.com/#moreinfo) page reassures users that the jailbreaking process is fully reversible with a simple restore and that there is no risk for any permanent damage. Still, we'd recommend users proceed with caution.

The browser-based jailbreak process again exploits a flaw in Apple's PDF renderer that allows the tool to open up the device. Just like the previous vulnerability (http://www.macrumors.com/2010/08/11/apple-fixes-ios-pdf-security-hole-with-ios-4-0-2-and-3-2-2/), Apple is expected to patch this one shortly. This same vulnerability could be exploited by malicious parties as well. The programmers of JailbreakMe are also providing a patch to close the security hole behind them for jailbroken users. Users of non-jailbroken iOS devices, however, will have to wait until Apple provides a fix.

More information and answers can be found in our respective "Hacks" forums for iPhone (http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=105), iPod touch (http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=115), and iPad (http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=140).

Yes, but does it allow for unlocking of an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.3.3?

Now, there's a dilemma: to wait for Apple to patch the vulnerability, or jailbreak your iDevice so that those nice people at JailbreakMe.com will patch it first.

According to that first post:
- iPhone4: 4.3 through 4.3.3
?

I still have an old iPhone 3G which I'm not really using anymore since upgrading to iOS 4. By jailbreaking my old iPhone, is it possible to make it as snappy as before upgrading from iOS 3 to 4 ? That would really be the only purpose for me to jailbreak one of my iPhones.

Takes me back to the days of iOS 1.x.x, fond memories.

Apple will not like this as it is a genuine security risk. This will be fixed much more quickly than the other tethered types of jailbreak.

I was rocking iOS 4.3.1 on my iPad 2 and this was not working for me. Safari just crashed and nothing else happened. After updating to iOS 4.3.3, everything worked perfectly on the first try; Safari crashed followed by the appearance of the shiny new Cydia icon.

It's not the jailbreaking that slows your phone down, its all the background process that some idiots install. Some tweaks do it too, as well as springboard replacements (pogoplank)

It can do. Jailbreaking in and of itself doesn't do much to slow down your phone. However, it enables you to install system modifications of your choice which can severely slow down an iphone. Especially if you have many of them all running at the same time.

For me with my iphone 3G, it was worth it to make iOS 3 minimally usable (instant access to brightness, sms, and airplane mode) without slowing it down with iOS 4.

No it isn't. It's a document format. Apple's implementation of the PDF viewer apparently sucks, though. AFAIK there are also problems in Preview.app on OS X but at least you can't get root access from there.

The baseband is the ultimate black box. Because breaking into it amounts to throwing everything and the kitchen sink at it and seeing what works, there's no way to tell when progress will be made.

More poor security from Apple. I wonder how long before viruses start using the same security holes.

Out of all the Jailbreaks that have been released over these many years, no viruses have been made other then a "virus" (not really) that hit Jailbroken users who installed OpenSSH and did not change the password. Even then it was limited to only being able to be used if you were connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the person distributing it, so hardly anyone was affected.
So no, don't expect any viruses.

Jailbreak isn't working for me, cydia pops up on my home screen and loads halfway but when it gets to installing, it disappears. I've tried to reboot and everything but it keeps disappearing. What to do...

I'm talking in general here. Although on the other hand Acrobat and Acrobat Reader do suck a lot too (security wise). You think it's just bad coding on 4-5 separate applications?

Yes. PDF is one of the very few formats that gets displayed over the internet which means it is a target.

Charlie Miller reported that Preview.app was vulnerable to a technique known as "Fuzzing" which means you feed the program a PDF file with a few bytes changed randomly and if the program crashes you analyze the crash to find security exploits.

One way to fix this would be for Apple QA to test with fuzzing as well. It seems they don't.

Yes you can upgrade then JB and you won't lose anything. But you likely need a backup app for JB stuff.

Adobe didn't write the PDF support in iOS, Apple did. Why would we blame Adobe ? The security flaw is not the specification for the PDF format, it's in Apple's implementation of that specification.

Please people, try to at least understand stuff beyond vendor names before you try to set blame on someone.

I don't know why people rejoice that a remote website can modify the core operating system on their phones. That to me just sounds really, really wrong.

I have never tried to JB my iPad, but this time I'm considering doing it. the main reason is to be able to browse and manage all my files from one place, regardless of which App has them, and to be able to use the iPad as a Flash drive without having to install a helper App.

I only have some important questions pending:
- Will I be able to continue purchasing and Updating apps from the Tunes App Store?
- Will AirPlay continue to work?
- Will my 3G Service be affected?
- Will I still be able to Sync and Backup using iTunes?
- What functionality will I loose?

Thanks in Advance for any assistance regarding this matter.

I can't believe what a bunch of slackers the folks at Cydia are. They don't support iOS 4.3.3 on the Verizon iPhone? They'd really better step up their game or they'll...


What's that? You're kidding me, still?!


EDIT: This was meant as a joke, not a jab at Cydia. There is no 4.3.3 on Verizon yet! Cydia supports 4.2.8, the latest for Verizon.

That was the point: it's hard for some people to believe Apple still hasn't brought the Verizon and AT&T iPhones to the same release schedule yet for iOS. So the point was:

What's that? Apple still hasn't brought the Verizon iPhone to the same iOS version as the AT&T one, or the iPod touch and iPad for that matter?!? You're kidding me, still?!


Sorry if the joke didn't come through right...

I take it that you leave your doors unlocked all the time when away from home since that is more convenient than dragging your keys along ?

Again, while convenient for anyone wanting to jailbreak (I have no reason to do so on my iPhone), it is not a positive thing to have such a gaping security hole around. Convenience should never trump security in my view when it comes to software.

Actually, I do, but only the backdoor. Losing a key would be unfortunate, and only once did a visitor come in my back door while I was sleeping. She was looking for her friend who lived one floor up. It was quite amusing. And in case you think I live in a safe place, I'm in Baltimore.

Depends. How likely is it that someone would have found and exploited the hole faster than Comex did, and patched immediately thereafter? Apple is also likely to plug it rather quickly now, so it seems only good things came from this hole. I'm pragmatic, so if the consequences are good, so is the hole!

This hole isn't patched, and the consequences of it are not entirely known. You never know who can and will exploit (or has!) this hole. Like your backdoor (I'm guessing you don't leave it unlocked when you're away like you hint you do).

Apple hasn't patched it, anyone who is not jailbroken or has not installed the patch after jailbreaking is not safe from exploits.

Again, this isn't positive. There is no rejoicing to be had here and I find Macrumors as always to be irresponsible to report this as a "Jailbreak easily!" story instead of a "nasty security hole lets remote websites execute code that modifies the core OS!".

Hi All, please advise

I have used jailbreakme to update the original 4.0.1 and have never gone back - jailbreak is great as it allows me to watch sky sports on TV.

Therefore all im loosing is the new features apple have added in 4.3.3 such as facetime to ipad etc which i would find useful.

Whats the easiest way to update to 4.3.3 and then use this jailbreak tool today?

Will there be any chance that apple would push out an update today that would cause me problems when trying to update tonight?

thanks for all

You can still downgrade, just save your shsh with TinyUmbrella (google it if you don't know what that is, I'm not in a position to attach a link). Do that even if you don't want to downgrade now.. Apple is changing the way they prevent downgrades of firmware.

I hope Apple patches this soon.

If the PDF vulnerability can be used to root and given the attackers free rein over the OS, then it can be used to install malware.

Jailbreakers will not be happy, but I don't expect, nor want, Apple to sacrifice the security of millions of phones just so a handful jailbreakers can practice their little hobby.

PS:
I view the hacking of the PS3 the same way.

Jailbreaker/Homebrewers are free to not buy these locked down products, there are open alternatives (Android/Desktop PC) out there for them to use.

I can't believe what a bunch of slackers the folks at Cydia are. They don't support iOS 4.3.3 on the Verizon iPhone? They'd really better step up their game or they'll...
What's that? You're kidding me, still?!

WoW you must have nuts the size of bowling balls to say something like that. How much time have YOU put into Cydia? How much of your day has been taken up with trying to make sure cydia runs on what ever hardware/software out there? What? How much? Yeah thats what I thought. How about you be thankful that cydia is free and will eventually be available for your device.

Some people's misplaced sense of entitlement makes me want to kick them in the junk.

Stop installing crap.

Seriously, I've seen people Jailbreak, then install junk like WinterBoard, a mess of themes, ever lame tweak and addon they can, and then are SURPRISED when their device suddenly doesn't work right. Jailbreaking removes the artificial barrier Apple puts there to "protect" you. Once you remove that barrier, it is up to YOU to know "when to say when".

Jailbreak, then install something like *just* Barrel. You get smooth, 3D animations. Does that slow things down? What about installing Phone GV/SMS GV Extensions for free calls and SMS. Does that slow things down?
What about DataDeposit? A GREAT tool for backing up individual games/apps. It doesn't impact performance at all.

No, a jailbreak doesn't necessarily provide an unlock. And the only way to unlock iOS 5 Beta 2 is to use a Gevey sim (and you need to have a downgraded baseband). PM me for more details.

No it isn't. It's a document format. Apple's implementation of the PDF viewer apparently sucks, though. AFAIK there are also problems in Preview.app on OS X but at least you can't get root access from there.

The problem last time with the PDF viewer was a bug in the FreeType open source font rendering library that Apple uses: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4291.

I wonder if it's FreeType again?

I wasn't able to get this to work on my iPhone 4. I had 4.1 with a previous jailbreak on it and it was fine. I just wanted to try this method out to see it myself. I updated to 4.3.3 today and then tried it. Safari (on jailbreakme.com) would let me hit the install button (on my phone of course) and then safari would close and nothing would happen. I went to a direct link on the jailbreakme.com-forums for my phone and that time it showed the Cydia app installing for a brief moment and quit. I did restarts, cleared cache/history and did a restore but it never worked.

I just decided to go back and use Redsnow and got everything up and running on 4.3.3 as I didn't want to spend any more time playing with it.

very true. the only malware/virus that even came semi-close to getting on an iOS device through any kind of hole was when jailbreakers install openSSH and didn't change the default password. and even that only when you happen to be on the same wifi network as a hacker who is actively distributing said offensive content to iOS devices.

Security holes always exist, and comex had to work extremely hard to make this one do what he wanted it to do. hacking is not easy.

Apparently, it took 10 months to develop Jailbreakme 3.0. Most likely, not all that time was dedicated to the exploit's development but it shows that development is not easy.

As usual, it appears that some of these bugs are not present in OS X so using a derivative of this exploit in malware on a broader scale is not likely to occur before a patch is released by Apple.

very true. the only malware/virus that even came semi-close to getting on an iOS device through any kind of hole was when jailbreakers install openSSH and didn't change the default password. and even that only when you happen to be on the same wifi network as a hacker who is actively distributing said offensive content to iOS devices.

Actually, if the final payload for this exploit was changed from Cydia to something malicious, it would facilitate the install of malware.

This type of jailbreak is an example of a remote exploit being chained together with a local exploit to produce a remote root.

I believe much of the reason this occurs more frequently in iOS is that jailbreaking provides a motive to search for these bugs (most of which do not affect OS X but it somewhat represents a code audit of both iOS and OS X) and because iOS is only 32 bit.

32 bit security mitigations (ASLR and XD in this case) can be bypassed using brute force based methods or ROP (as I believe was used in this example; also works against 64 bit). Many of the security mitigations used in iOS differ from those of OS X.

Local exploits, as used in Jailbreakme, are not common in iOS.

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=apple+ios+gain+privileges

That link shows previous examples of such vulnerabilities; one of which was used in Jailbreakme 2, which also used a Safari based exploitation vector.

1. Close all open apps
2. Do a hard reboot of iPhone by pressing and holding both Home button and Sleep/Wake button simultaneously until the phone reboots (white Apple logo appears)
3. Go to www.jailbreakme.com and download Cydia

Worked great...easiest jailbreak ever.

Don't forget to change your root and mobile root password...the Mobile Terminal app crashes for some reason following 4.3.1, but I found the solution here:

This may seem like a no-brainer to some, but I was dumb enough to have it happen to me, so I thought I'd post it: once you've jailbroken your iPad, be very wary about installing Cydia packages designed for iPhone/iPod touch. There could be compatibility issues of varying seriousness.

I installed Light Bright on my iPad 2 to try it out. That was a mistake. Froze the device solid after a few seconds of use, and once I hard-rebooted it, SpringBoard seemed to think it was running on an iPhone — the whole screen was filled, but all icons (except folder icons) were rendered at their iPhone sizes, spaced way out near the edges at 4x4 instead of the iPad's 5x5. Even the keyboard in Spotlight was an iPhone keyboard, stuck at the far left. Running any app, including Cydia, crashed the thing so hard it rebooted all over again. It's currently stuck most of the way through restoring, with no sign that it intends to finish. (Edit: it just finished...which may or may not have anything to do with the fact that I installed and opened the latest version of TinyUmbrella seconds earlier.)

Don't be a dumbass like me! Be wise. Be safe. Be...aware. :D

I just don't like Jailbreaks, because well I guess I am lazy...
I mean what is it you can do with a jailbreak?
You can install non-apple-approved software, use pirated apps, browse the file system, right?

The non-apple-approved software may or may not be non-approved for a good reason, if it is a good or bad reason, well that is a different topic.
Personally I admit I don't no much about the Cyndia apps, but I don't really care either, some may be good e.g. wifi- sync, but that will come anyway with ios 5 so I just wait.

Second the pirated apps, most of the iphone developers are indie devs or people like you and me, I don't no about you, but I don't like the idea of some small developer losing part of there income, because of a jailbreak. It is just wrong not to pay them for their work!

And last the file browsing capability, while I see the potential in there it isn't just easy enough. You either have to install openssh or use some other software, why do I have to do this, that is not why I bought an apple device.
If I would want software, where I would have/want to adjust anything I would buy android and use windows or linux.

What I like about apple products is they are almost carefree and they are dumped down enough, so I can concentrate on the work itself, not on the device.


But well if you folk want to use the jailbreak go ahead and do so, I won't and this post was a waste of my time...

Don't know why, but I've been trying on and on during the last 30'. Once I click on the "install", the app comes, download starts but immediately appears: "Tehre was a problem downloading the jailbreak files. Invalid checksum". I just eamil Comex as a message came up on the phone following these failures.

Anybody experienced the same? :confused::confused::(:(

I finally succeeded by using the mobile network (3G) rather than my WiFi network... Don't really know why, but it did work immediately. And then spent 1 or 2 hours getting some apps on Cydia.

had already jailbroken my iPad 1.0 (ios 4.3.2) through other means. upgrading to 4.3.3 should not really be necessary (amirite?).

and if ever i upgrade (and using jailbreakme), would all installed cydia apps have to be reinstalled and reconfigured?

Cydia would load but not install! I ended up doing a full restore (to make my 3GS like new), THEN reloaded everything, THEN jailbroke the device. Cydia FINALLY loaded & I am good to go! Took about 1 1/2 hrs total.

Yea, I had to do the same thing. I restored to factory, installed from a previous backup, the installing Cydia worked. Unfortunately for me, like a dummy, I didn't start the process until late and ended up not getting to bed till after 2am!! Ug. Today is going to suck....

WoW you must have nuts the size of bowling balls to say something like that. How much time have YOU put into Cydia? How much of your day has been taken up with trying to make sure cydia runs on what ever hardware/software out there? What? How much? Yeah thats what I thought. How about you be thankful that cydia is free and will eventually be available for your device.

Some people's misplaced sense of entitlement makes me want to kick them in the junk.

Some people's misplaced violent anger over something they are ill-informed about makes me sigh. My post about Cydia not supporting 4.3.3 on Verizon was meant to be a joke.

1) There is no 4.3.3 on Verizon / CDMA's phone.
2) Apple still hasn't brought the Verizon phone up to the same build, which many find frustrating: no iCloud preview, etc.
3) Cydia supports the latest Verizon build released by Apple (4.2.8).
4) I thought people on MacRumors would know this, but I apologize if the allusion wasn't clear.
5) I was not insulting Cydia. I was making light of the fact that Apple still can't get all its i-devices on the same OS.
6) I don't have a Verizon iPhone.
7) I don't feel entitled to anything, except perhaps not having people say they want to kick me in the junk for no reason.

Maybe my humor wasn't good, but was it really something to get that upset about?

FWIW I thought it was kinda funny. But yeah, peeps getting their e-peens all enflamed so easily. Lame.

well thanks for your permission, and your right it was a waste of your time, which obviously you have a little too much of! Your opinion is riddled with idiotic statements.
