JailbreakMe 2.0: Jailbreak Bricking the iPhone 4

By Peter Chubb - Aug 2, 2010

There are a number of jailbreak solutions out there now, but the most recent is Jailbreakme 2.0. iPhone Dev Team hacker Comex was the one responsible for coming up with this latest version, it looks as though it will work with the iPhone 4, and all other models except the original 2G model.

Mark from Phones Review points out that the latest version of Jailbreakme also works on the Apple iPad, but just remember that you install it as your own risk. We have to point this out as Engadget discovered this the hard way and found that it had bricked their iPhone 4.

I4U has a step-by-step guide in what you have to do in order to get Jailbreakme 2.0 running on your device, we just hope that you have success and that you will not have to do a complete restore.

The new jailbreak software has now managed to solve a few issues that the original version suffered from – one of which was FaceTime. We can expect to see more jailbreak solutions becoming available over the coming weeks after the Library of Congress has now ruled that jailbreaking is no longer illegal.

    It only bricked mine while trying to do a restore… Tried everything, the restore got stuck at about 95% and never finished … It stayed in recovery mode, I went se the geniuses and the were successful at restoring it on th e first try.

    I agree with Wishboneboy's comment, used Jailbreakme for 12 hours and so far work smoothly. I've download heaps of free apps using Installous too. No stalling of bricked experience thus far.

    I used Jailbreakme.com a few hours ago. Works well and there is no evidence of my phone running slower. Ip4. The other thing I noticed was when I turn my phone on or restart the apple logo appears, but at the top it looks like a cracked white line(s). If I experience any problems I’ll update! W.

    I am currently restoring my iPod since Spirit does not work with iTunes 9.2 . Once Jailbroken, I'll write a post on jailbreaking today!

  • For those who are hoping to do this on their iPod Touch 2G — please don't. It will only make your OS slower. The best platform there is is still the 3.1.3.

    I have upgraded my iPod Touch 2G to iOS 4 and I was disappointed. I upgraded it to iOS 4.1 and the feeling is still the same. iPhone 4 JailBreak Latest News
