Jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 on iPad 2, iPhone, and iPod touch with JailbreakMe 3.0

Jul 6, 2011 - 37 Comments

Jailbreakme 3

JailbreakMe 3.0 is out finally and if you’re interested in jailbreaking this is what you’ve been waiting for; it is entirely computer free, there is no DFU mode, there is no restoring firmware and IPSW files, nothing complicated at all, just load the jailbreakme.com website from your compatible iOS device and the jailbreak installs.

This is the easiest jailbreak in existence and it’s the first official iPad 2 jailbreak available, but also works on all other hardware capable of running iOS 4.3.3, including iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 3rd gen, iPod touch 4th gen.

How to Jailbreak iPad 2, iPhone, & iPod touch with iOS 4.3.3 and JailbreakMe

  • Visit JailbreakMe.com from your compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
  • Tap on the “Free” button and then tap on “Install”
  • Safari will quit and you will see the brown Cydia icon loading on your home screen
  • When Cydia is done downloading, your jailbreak is complete

That’s all there is to it. It’s probably a good idea to reboot the iOS device once it’s finished so everything works as intended. If you ever get sick of it, you can unjailbreak just by restoring the iOS device from iTunes.

Optionally, after the jailbreak is finished you may want to search for and download “PDF Patcher 2” from the Cydia store so you can patch the exploitable PDF hole that allows the jailbreak to install in the first place.

The simple installation process is identical on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Happy jailbreaking.

    Didn’t work for me. Quit half way through install, and icon disappeared :(

    • M says:

      Try to clear your cache and cookies in Safari, remove all apps from multitasking, and reboot the iOS device.

      • Joccoj says:

        cleared cache, cookies, no apps multitasking (that i can see anyway), rebooted iphone – but still same problem. any more suggestions?

      • Matt says:

        Bingo for me – initial visit to the site had no “Free” button to press, but clearing cache and cookies, eliminating all apps from the multitasking “shelf”, and rebooting did the trick and Cydia now installed and running. Now if only the tethering app didn’t cost $20…

    My iPhone 4 will not jailbreak :S It says invalid checksum -.-

  10. Matt says:

    “There was a problem downloading the jailbreak files. Invalid Checksum

    Cancel Try Again”

    I’m close but no cigar…i’m hoping it’s just the traffic to the site that’s keeping it from downloading and installing, will update if/when it’s successful

    does jailbreakme only work on mac or does it work on windows?

    • jc says:

      jailbreaking is for the phone, not the computer. this JB is only for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. What OS you’re running on your computer has as much to do with this JB as what brand of oil is in your car.
