Jailbreakme Not Working: Problems Increase, Alternative Wanted

Yesterday we reported that JailbreakMe 2.0 was not working, and users were reporting a few problems with the iPhone / iPod Touch jailbreak software. Today it seems the problem is bigger than first thought, with user complaints increasing, and some asking for an alternative to JailbreakMe.

Some people are posting their recommendations, which include “NOT” to jailbreak the iPod Touch 2G, saying it will “only make your OS slower”. Over on Phones Review the complaints have increased too.

Some of those trying JailbreakMe have said “I can confirm that the jailbreak is not working”, and the common problem was nothing happening after they slide the bar to jailbreak, one user said “I slide the bar then nothing happens just a pretty picture of the universe”.

Others say they slide the bar and it appears to be downloading the software, but then “the site closes immediately after downloading”. This could be the demand for a download, and they might not be handling the traffic. Some users are not worried about the download, and more interested in what issues they may expect after the iPhone is jailbroken.

The official site at says the JailbreakMe is reversible, and that the software is “legal in the US” thanks to a “DMCA exemption”. Read more on the official site about this and other questions.

Are you still having problems with JailbreakMe?
