Almost 1 Million iPhone 4S And iPad 2 Jailbroken in Three Days

The jailbreak dream team released the Absinthe jailbreak late last week – the first jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. They’ve just shared the number of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users who have jailbroken their iOS device since the launch.

iPhone dream team have shared the following numbers:

  • 491,325 new iPhone4,1 devices
  • 308,967 new iPad2 devices
  • 152,940 previously jailbroken (at 4.x) iPad2 devices

Total: 953,232 new A5 jailbreaks in a little over 3 days

The data is based on the query that is sent to saurik’s servers when Cydia is launched to get the list of available SHSH blobs for that iOS device.

If you’ve jailbroken your iOS device then jailbreak dream has provided the following advice:

Remember the cardinal rule of jailbreaking: never update your firmware until a new jailbreak is available.  This is especially true for A5 owners, who currently have no way of restoring to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 SHSH blob signing window is closed.

With awesome jailbreak tweaks like SiriToggles and Hands-Free Control adding new functionality to iPhone 4S, we expect this number to go up as the word spreads.

Have you jailbroken your iPhone 4S or iPad 2? Let us know in the comments.
