    I'm against jailbrake, but after reading your thoughts I'm having my doubts now.

    Nice. So, suggesting a tweak known to facilitate piracy (Appsync) is the way you wish to go here?

    There's a better and legitimate way and it's called AppAdmin

    You will note that AppAdmin does not have a reputation for piracy.

    Nice. Which iPhone models and OS versions does this work on without issues?

    Hi
    I want to jailbreak my iPhone 6 plus.
    i can't find for 10.2.1 a stable jailbreak. Is it possible to downgrade? or it is better to update to 10.3? or should i wait for untethered jailbreak?
    Is it so that certificate will expire every 7 days, why?
    Many thanks

    At the time I wrote this there were no semi-untethered jailbreaks yet.

    That said, to answer your questions.

    1. Step 2 is not strictly necessary, but it does eliminate complications. In the past, I have been unable to jailbreak in my current stock condition. Restoring as new enabled me to jailbreak because I started with a clean, stock device.

    2. Disabling the other stuff is simply a precautionary measure. At the time you didn't want your phone locking during the jailbreak process and the JB process needed simple access to the device. Disabling all the security features and setting the screen to be on while jailbreaking ensures all that.

    4. Not understanding. All I am saying here is to have iTunes running in the background while you execute the JB app. Since 99% of jailbreak apps leverage the iTunes sync connection with a device, having iTunes running in the background may facilitate things. It certainly won't hurt.

    Again, please keep in mind that all this stuff was written before the 9.2 jailbreak where things changed. With the newer jailbreaks you jailbreak on the phone now.

    No jb for 10.2.1, you'll have to wait for 10.3.1, stay on your current firmware, yes you will have to resign after every week.

    hello katagrafo i have a ipad 4 which i cannot access because its asking me to be updated when i try to restore it on itunes
    i found it in a store a few months ago and as i tryed to give it back they told me it did not belong to them
    then i let a friend borrow it and he disabled it after so many trys
    and now it only ask me to be connected to itunes but unfortunately does not show up only when i try to restore it
    is there any jailbreak out there that i can do from my computer without access to the ipad?

    I used to be a regular jailbreaker, but I haven't bothered for a while now, so I wanted to hear how many of you are still into it?

    I have an iPhone on iOS 10.3.1 and my iPad's on 11.1.1. I'm not keen on tethered jailbreaks, so what are my options these days?

    Is it even still worth jailbreaking anymore?

    Thanks! :)

    Like anything, jailbreaking is worth what you want to get out of it.

    I've had one phone since late September 2015 and that's been my 6s+. It got updated to iOS 9.0.2 in October 2015 and then the second to last fully untethered jailbreak dropped and I jailbroke it.

    Fast forward to now and the phone is still on 9.0.2 and still jailbroken. I have over 200 tweaks installed. So, jailbreaking is worth it to me.

    I have an iPhone 5 on 10.3.3 jailbroken. That's semi-untethered. It's let me add some of the same stuff I have on my 6s+. But this is a secondary phone so I am not using it too much.

    But, if you can't find a reason to jailbreak (I can find multiple reasons for me) then don't bother. Semi-untethered isn't worth the hassle for no reason or no significant reason.

    This is my last jailbreak on my primary phone however. My next primary phone will not be an iPhone. Apple is going in a different direction than I am.

    Hi, yea, I always jailbroke when it was more of a regular thing. I've had to replace my 6s last year so the then-current OS is what I remain on. Sure glad I've escaped iOS 11 though. haha...

    So I am on 10.3.1 on a 6s and am wondering what my options are. And what does semi-untethered entail in this case?

    Semi-untethered means the following.

    • You boot in an unjailbroken state. You must run the app on the phone to rejailbreak.
    • The app that jailbreaks the phone must be resigned every seven days if you are using the free Apple developer account. Once a year if using a paid account. There are a few ways around that, but I don't know the particulars. If you don't reboot often you don't have to resign until the next boot.

    • If you are like a lot of others and simply upgrade to remove a jailbreak, the potential of that biting you in the ass at a later date seems to be good. Stories of Cydia being deleted, but tweaks still working, or being unable to delete Cydia (because upgrading left it and other pieces behind), etc, etc.

    • Difficulty of getting into Non-Mobile Subtrate mode (Safe Mode). No more holding Volume Up on boot (you boot unjailbroken so that does not work).

    • Sometimes it takes repeated attempts before the JB app rejailbreaks the phone.

    Just a lot of quirks and minor issues that won't bother most people who jailbreak for a specific reason. But for others, they just don't want to deal with that.

    Oh boy, sounds like iOS has gotten harder to beat. I mainly used it for features that are now part of iOS and tethering. Tethering would be my no. 1 reason to attempt to jailbreak, although for some reason, the Hotspot feature (same thing, Hotspot and tethering as you likely know) is active on my phone and apparently account, so I'm good on that front.

    So in other words, I'd be tied to a computer to some extent (some would consider it to a be great extent) and the whole thing would be fairly unstable, until you got everything running exactly the way you want and know which add-on plays nice with which extension, etc.?

    The jailbreak community must have shrunk significantly. Are there any numbers available on that? It used to be such a fun thing every year. :D
