JailbreakMe.com. the web-based jailbreak tool for (almost all) iOS devices, is back online once more after a long hiatus.

The process is simple and pain-free. Just visit the website in the Safari browser and click the FREE button to begin the process. It uses a PDF exploit to carry out the hack and it's very fast - and there's no need to connect your iOS device up to a PC or Mac to do it.

Because the hack relies on a know known PDF exploit, the developers of the hack recommend installing "PDF Patcher 2" in Cydia once you've jailbroken the device.

The following devices are supported:

  • iPad1: 4.3 through 4.3.3
  • iPad2: 4.3.3
  • iPhone3GS: 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 4.3.3

The only iOS devices that aren't supported are the 1st and 2nd generation iPhones.

    I've got a few iOS devices I'm not really using anymore. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

      @Aerowind ... and why not, seems to work fine!

    So no 3G?

      @ReconMarine1 - Nope. That would be the iPhone 2.

    And here you go. A browser based arbitrary code execution exploit. <br><br>Adrian: I think you should stress what a browser based exploit implies. It doesn't simply imply a social engineering vulnerability because of the fact that XSS is so rampant. If someone can root an iPhone through your web browser to jail break it, they can use this to put malware on it... And in combination with an XSS attack can get you to go to the malware infested site with no social engineering.

    Why is it that when IE has a vulnerability we slam it, and when Safari mobile has one we celebrate a new jailbreak?

    Worked like a charm on my iPad 2. But, it's not working on my iPhone 3GS (4.3.3). It goes to "loading" and then the Cydia icon goes away when it hits "installing".

    My reply is not meant to be a jab at the author, however this is clear documentation of a vulnerability in iOS and Safari that is being called something else.

    What's the quote from Shakespeare? "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet". I'll bet the Apple fanboys don't see it this way!
