iPhone Dev Team Release CLI Corona A5 iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak For Windows [Updated]

Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Redsn0w

greenpois0n Absinthe by the Chronic Dev team to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 and the CLI tool by iPhone Dev team was only available for the Mac.

We’ve some good news for Windows users. iPhone Dev team has just released a new version of their command line tool 0.4.3 that adds support for Windows. The CLI tool is for the technically inclined and should help in troubleshooting issues.

iPhone Dev team had provided the following details of their command line tool:

iPhone Dev have also incorporated the exact same flow into an alternative command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow.  Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors.  The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.

iPhone Dev team has provided the following details about the latest version of their command line tool:

The OS X version of the CLI mentioned in the post can be downloaded here.  It’s primarily to help us debug specific issues, but tinkerers might like to play around with some of its advanced options!  More info is here.

  • Version 0.4.3 adds support for Windows users.  It also makes the “-j” jailbreak option much more functional :)

You can download CLI using this link and check out this readme.txt file, which includes more details about how to use it.

Please remember to take a backup of your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 before proceeding.

Update: 

If you need help in jailbreaking, you can checkout our step-by-step guides:

As always, let us know how it goes.

  • Micrinko

    So can I somehow jailbreak my 4S with this through Windows ??? Or this is not the actual jailbreak

    • Sarcasme

      Yes you can.

      • Micrinko

        how omg i DL it and its just some random files

        • you’re-over-your-head

          It amazes me that people who need instructions to turn on their computer would even attempt a CLI tool. Now really, DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT A COMMAND LINE IS??

      • you’re-over-your-head

        Is Sarcasme Padme’s brother?

    • omega

      EVERYONE!, I THINK ITS BETTER TO JUST WAIT FOR THE ABSINTHE VERSION, CUZ THIS LOOKS KINDA COMPLICATED RIGHT?

      • KillerPubes

        Wrong

        • omega

          but don’t deny that absinthe is better :(

          • Wiilt

            no… you’re stupid.

          • Lol guy

            Or a fur cut

        • you’re-over-your-head

          GET A HAIR CUT

    • Daniyar

      Pleaseeeee heeeeelp we I cant run CLI in windows 7 it opens for few milliseconds and then close HEEEEEELP

      • twofifths

        You need to run the CLI jailbreak through your cmd.exe program. Don’t just double-click on the cinject.exe program

        • http://tarellsuggs@yahoo.com Tarell

          whats next because mines is doing the samething

  • Tomtom

    *and i jizzed in my pants!*

  • Rogan

    I need tissue… Allot of tissue!

    • PW

      How do I get the tissue to you?????

  • Micrinko

    can someone actually answer my question or u gonna wank about it

    • Axe

      Ya we gonna wank about it.

    • Antwat

      Yes, do it…

    • GoHome&ReThink

      If, you would learn to read and answer your own questions, you would find answers w/o having to poll the ‘wankers’. This site alone answers all of your questions. The reason people are pulling your chain is that you are letting everyone know you are ignorant to the facts by not reading them; this article alone answers your question. Help comes to those that help themselves. If, you were to ask intelligent (& informed) questions you would receive the same in kind.

  • Phebar

    Can anyone make a guide to JB on windows

  • Kartman66

    Yes it looks like you can but it’s very complicated… I would wait for the absinthe program..

    • Wiilt

      wow. if you cant use a command line. WHY THE HELL DO YOU WANT TO JAILBREAK A PHONE!

  • Comic

    I got my jailbreak sorted last night.. Big big donations going out across the board.

    Effing love it !!!

  • marmyth

    Is there any tutorial how to jailbreak it?? Sorry for English – from Czech Republic …

  • r0ni

    Omg!!! I’m soooo happy today, after few months waiting finally….

  • Wilfred & Roofey

    Version 0.4.3 adds support for Windows users. It also makes the “-j” jailbreak option much more functional

    Usage:
    1. open CMD.exe
    2. cd to the cinject.exe
    3. execute the command: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig
    4. execute the command: cinject.exe -j payloads
    5. execute the command: cinject.exe -w
    6. toggle the VPN switch in settings
    7. Wait for reboot

    • Joseph

      What the hell are you on about how do you do this

      • Wiilt

        If you can’t use Command Line, DON’T DO THIS. THIS STUFF IS NOT SOME PROGRAMMING SH*T. IF YOU CAN’T DO IT, DON’T JAILBREAK!

        I am surprised you windows users can’t user command line. Now, you are being such f*cks about it.

    • WAIT

      For those who dont know, cd is change directory, if you encounter errors then try switching usb ports, if you are asked for password just press enter..

      • Joseph

        Can someone do a tutorial please I don’t under stand whats going on

    • marmyth

      Can you tell us a little bit easier, please?!

    • rogan

      every time i type
      cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig
      i get a message saying ‘ send 1: result to large’
      what is going wrong?

      • sherwin

        me too evertime i got message send 1: result too large WTF

      • twofifths

        try plugging your device directly into your computer, bypassing any USB hubs you may be using.

    • Alan

      i have zero experiance using cmd, and i can follow these instructions, good post.

    • ma

      after toggling VPN i got cydia on my iphone but CMD last line is
      “installing filemover…”
      it’s been like that for a few minutes now.
      is that normal? can i reboot?

    • TASOS

      How toggle the VPN switch in settings??
      In which function has to be my iphone 4s to do that??

      • ma

        VPN toggle will be in settings (main settings) after you use cinject.exe -w

    • jack

      when i use command -i payloads\jailbreak.mobileconfig
      it never work!!!

    • OGT

      the iPhone must to be on DFU or normal????

    • Farcorfe

      Thank you for a clear and straight forward summery!

    • mihir

      after i execute “3. execute the command: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig” it shows “INSTALL PROFILE ” SCREEN ON MY IPHONE SHALL I INSTALL AND THEN MOVE FURTHER?

    • Look@theWoodwork

      W&R you are tutoring donkeys. It seems to me that you may have omitted a few steps…
      1. turn on your computer
      2. if your screen is still dark after 2 minutes you need to press the power button on the tower as well as the monitor.
      3. if you need to ask what CD refers to proceed to step 4
      4. turn off your computer

    • mihir

      got my ip4s jailbroken but on my ipad 2 everytime it stops at server connection error and then nothing wat shall i do

    • DERRICK

      Why does mine say 1 result too large?

  • Chris

    Some people are just plain retarded, how hard is it to read a text file or use google once in a while? everyone just expects to be spoon fed.

    • Houck

      Agreed!

    • Look@theWoodwork

      smartest comment I have read on this thread!

  • Ben

    Mine won’t reboot afterward. :/ Help?

  • Joseph

    Well why is the Mac jailbreak easier and the windows one is just gibberish

  • Jefferson County

    If you having to ask how to jailbreak, instead of reading the instructions provided with the download, then you shouldn’t be trying to jailbreak. Go back to your window and continuing licking.

  • AJ

    I get this after running cinject.exe -j payloads….

    Adding custom com.apple.ipsec.plist to backup
    Restoring...
    recv: Bad file descriptor
    FATAL(__LINE__): Assertion failed (1266): got == sizeof(size)
    1266

    • Alan

      try again, only this time make sure your Compad disk drive is open

      • AJ

        What is my “Compad disk”? My CDROM drive? What does that have to do with the jailbreak?

        Also, when I try to start the VPN server, it won’t start. “A configuration error occured.”

    • IDAN

      I have exactly the same error on Ipad 2.
      Whatever I do, I can’t overcome this.
      P.S. I’m not new to DOS, and did all I could think of to fight this error.

    • the best

      If your windows is 64 bit, it cant be helped cus its not compatible we’re just going to have to wait for the gui version son

      • Dan

        Works just fine on win 7 64bit for me and many others….check dev team blog

  • CommandLine!

    tssst,

    All tose younglings, the all should have a few lessons MS-DOS, then the will know what command line means and how it works on windows!

    (Almost) Everybody now can work with windows, but when it comes to the cmd command, most are clueless what to do, lolz, i have no mercy, you’re all on your own or the goodwill of others :p

    Enjoying his jailbroken iPad2 3G, done on windows7 :p

    • Smokey

      Haha, agreed, its nice to see a hark back to the good ol’ days of the command line

  • Shazaam

    Any one having trouble there’s already a YouTube video check it out

    • OGT

      Do a clean restore! as a “NEW PHONE” aftre jailbreak restore as normal!

  • el

    Charming !! Good work people.

  • Hacker

    Just to let you guys know, I don’t think 64 bit/x64 systems are compatible, and you don’t leave your cd-rom/dvd drive “out” lol!

  • roy

    got a link to the video we need. there are tons of them that are junk

  • AJ

    I’m on a 32 bit system and I still get error 1266.

  • el

    To all concern folks, as you can read way at the top, this is for Technically Inclined people. Not to be done if you do not know how to and do not ask how to do it. ONLY FOR TECHNICALLY INCLINED jail-breakers please.

  • sherwin

    watch on yuotube to make your life easier lol iPhone 4s Jailbreak Windows [easy]

  • AJ

    One of the youtube videos says:
    FAQ:
    Q: Getting error 1266, What do I do?
    A: Restore your iDevice into a clean install using iTunes.

    I’m trying it now.

  • Bruno

    BRILLIANT!! I’m jailbroken baby!!! No issues whatsoever.. worked first time! You guys ROCK!!

  • Red_Death

    If you’re needing to ask how to then this version of the jailbreak is not for you!

    Nuff said!

  • Hacker

    OPEN CMD
    TYPE:CD DESKTOP
    CD CINJECT_0.4.3
    THEN…
    3. execute the command: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig
    4. execute the command: cinject.exe -j payloads
    5. execute the command: cinject.exe -w
    6.toggle the VPN switch in settings

    FOR THE LESS “TECHNICALLY” INCLINED. CD means change directory and make sure you extract the folder to the desktop.

    • TASOS

      pls help
      How toggle the VPN switch in settings?? – i can’t understand
      In which function has to be my iphone 4s to do that??

      • pisnac

        just go in to settings on your iphone then go to vpn and then toggle the on switch and it will give error,but dont worry just wait a few seconds and your iphone will reboot , and then you will see cydia installed voila your iphone 4S is jailbroken

    • http://aol.com Sheri

      Thank you it was really easy. THANK YOU!!!!!

  • jayhoww

    Just got mine working.. Thumbs up! Took me a minute to jailbreak it.. Thanks @Wilfred & Roofey

    AWESOME !!!!!!!
    Now enjoying my Jailbroken iPad 2 done via Windows 7 ;)

    • joncrup

      how?

    • omega

      REALLY? i have windows 7, can you please give me the instructions on how to use it? :D

  • benthediabetic

    I don’t know why some people are being such smarmy assholes when others are seeking guidance. We all have to learn from somewhere

    • Roger

      Agreed Benthediabetic , how else will people learn that don’t know unless people give a helping hand at explaining, those smarmy assholes just want to think they are smart because they figured it out.
      Personally after reading the txt file it was quite easy for me to understand but i am still getting a bad file error

  • Hacker

    amen brother @benthediabetic

  • Hacker

    tell me about it..that’s why i put technically in inverted commas. Sharing is caring but some of these people just plain selfish!

  • CMD NOOB

    Can anyone tell me the command to cd to cinject.exe plz 8)… and sorry for the sad question

  • Jap

    Usage:
    1. open CMD.exe – start- program’s- Accessories- command prompt

    2. cd to the cinject.exe – type “cd\” then the directory where you keep cinject.exe in the open box at the c:\ bit

    3. execute the command: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig – type ” cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig”

    4. execute the command: conjecture.exe -j payloads – type”conjecture.exe -j payloads”

    5. execute the command: cinject.exe -w – type “cinject.exe -w”

    6. toggle the VPN switch in settings – go on phone, then in settings

    7. Wait for reboot

    • nima

      every time i hit the enter after typing command this error apears: Send 1: resault too larg
      what’s my problem?!

    • middle east

      thank you

    • Symph

      These steps worked good, but i think you have a typo here…,

      in Step 4 conjecture.exe should really be “cinject.exe”.

      also there is a part ( dont remember if it was step 3 or 4)… but you have to go to your phone and install a profile…, for the VPN it asks for a password, just leave this blank and press next.

      For me after doing step 5…, the command dos window seemed to be hanging on “Installing FileMover”(or something like that) but cydia was installed so i just closed the window and restored through iTunes. And everything seems to be working fine.

      Though the VPN things is kinda of worrying me a bit. What was that all about? Did any of my info get sent to this pod2g guy?

  • lightfader

    i need a password??????????
    to download it

    • IDAN

      just click “Next”

      • lightfader

        there are no next:(
        im doing it on ipad 2

        • Wiilt

          why are you….

  • AJ

    If anyone is getting error 1266, you must do a full phone reset. (do not restore a backup from iTunes, it won’t work)

  • lightfader

    there are no next:(
    im doing it on ipad 2

  • Alvin

    Guys, for those who encountered the 1266 error:

    1. Do a backup in itunes
    2. Go to phone settings-general-reset-erase all content and settings
    3. After reboot/config done, exe the cinject commands.
    4. After Jb, restore your contents from itunes again.
    This will solve the 1266 error. Have fun!

    • TeeOhDoubleDee

      Thanks Alvin… This fixed my 1266 error as well :)
      Cheers!

      • mandar

  • jeff

    cinject.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command wtf is this

    • Doobs

      When that happenened to me it was because cinject was in a folder inside a folder, from unzipping. Check that out.

  • LAnce

    OMFG Can you not read the 4, that’s a huge total of FOUR steps already posted in these comments? That’s all you need to know.

    Getting the 1266 error??? Why not post and ask about it instead of reading the comments and finding the fix is already posted???

    My god some of you are brain dead.

    Thanks to those of you kind enough to help out the smacktards, pity they are too ‘special’ to see it.

    • Roger

      Actually i’ve just done a full reset and i’m still getting the 1266, answer that or are you too brain dead?

      • KillerPubes

        You’ve done something wrong then, full reset, go through the first steps on the phone and set it as a new phone. Once you see all the icons again run the jailbreak stuff before restoring your phone.

        Duh!

      • Dan

        Just wait for redsn0w if your having problems this is a more “tech” version! Don’t get mad at people for not helping because you are having problems….contact the dev team then on there blog!

      Sherwin – Have you located the directory where cinject is located? if you start with c: and the directory with cinject is in the root of c: you would need to type cd cinject_0.4.3 and press return and you can then run the commands from inside that

    camera icon blank. Tried restoring from backup still blank how do I get the icon colorful again.

  • Bill S.

    I think it worked. I’m going to include instructions below. Please note, I’m using Win XP SP-3, iTunes 10.5.3 and iPad 2 running 5.0.1. Here’s how I did it.

    Version 0.4.3 adds support for Windows users. It also makes the “-j” jailbreak option much more functional
    Usage:
    1. open CMD.exe
    2. cd to the cinject.exe
    3. execute the command: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig
    4. execute the command: cinject.exe -j payloads
    5. execute the command: cinject.exe -w
    6. toggle the VPN switch in settings
    7. Wait for reboot

    If you encountered the 1266 error:
    1. Do a backup in itunes
    2. Go to phone settings-general-reset-erase all content and settings
    3. After reboot/config done, exe the cinject commands.
    4. After Jb, restore your contents from itunes again.
    This will solve the 1266 error. Have fun!

    • Bill S.

      Yes, it worked! I did encounter error 1266 but did the steps I mentioned. I’m now doing a restore and Cydia is there. So yes I can confirmed this worked.

    • Jozef

      Thanksssssss, that’s what I needed ;)

  • hjacked

    I have just done jailbreaking my IPAD 2 iOS 5.0.1, bunch of thanks for the dream team!!! :)
    1. Restore your device with iTunes (i use the latest 10.5.3.3)
    2. Download and extract “cinject_0.4.3″ (Absinthe CLI for windows)
    3. Hold shift and right click the folder of cinject_0.4.3 and select “open command window here”.
    4. Execute the command: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig
    5. Execute the command: cinject.exe -j payloads.
    6. Execute the command: cinject.exe -w (I didn’t use this to watch the system log, cause I see no error executing cinject.exe -j payloads)
    7. Toggle the VPN switch in settings, wait for reboot and your free!!!
    DREAM TEAM ROCKS!

    waiting at “installing filemover” for about 20 minutes? any cure?

    • hjacked

      did you restore before jailbreaking?

      • stefan

        YES! Cydia appears to be on the phone so what now?

        • winpc

          then try to run cydia, it should run and update, your jailbreaking process is done…

    1. Simply backup and reset phone.

    2. Jailbreak again.

    3. And restore.

  • chandra

    how about my error is
    FATAL(__LINE__): Assertion failed (718).. how solve it?
    WTF!!

  • middle east

    stuck on backing files up for half an hour

  • buuju

    it work.. for win7..
    Run CMD as administrator..
    just follw the usage..

  • buuju

    don’t forget tu turn on VPN…

    • Reza

      Hi Buuju, should I do this as the script is running? I don’t see much scrolling of the syst log right now but it looks like its thinking. Don’t want to mess this up, do I turn on the VPN now?

  • Reza

    Quick question: after I type the -W command, the script runs and i can see the log scrolling for a few seconds then it stops but it is not back to the prompt; when do I need to switch the VPN on? It seems like its still working. Thanks

    • ToyMan

      I keep getting a config error when I switch the VPN switch on any ideas?
      THX

      • Reza

        hmm…no idea, but I can tell you what worked for me. I backed up my iPhone with iTunes. Then started the process with -J command which prompted me to run an -I command first. I did then I ran the -J command again. once that finished i typed the -W command which took a while and seem to be stuck at which point I enabled the VPN. also when you install VPN don’t put any password. Hope that helps.

  • buuju

    yup…
    turn VPN on

  • buuju

    turn on VPN one it stop..
    after that, it will continew..

    Okay ladies and mostly gentlemen, here is how to do this and it is not very difficult. I have tried below to be as easy as possible, so that everybody can do it. Carefully follow the instructions and you will be able to do it even if you are a basic user of iPhone.

    :P – Importantly, when you type commands, you must ignore the apostrophe. For example, if the instruction says – type “cinject.exe -j”, then you have to type cinject.exe (without the apostrophe – ‘ ” ‘). I know this is crazy but for some, it would make sense!

    1) First, download the file “cinject_0.4.3.zip”, extract the contents and copy the top folder “cinject_0.4.3″ to your C:\
    (I am assuming that there is another folder inside this folder named “cinject_0.4.3″.)
    2) Now, on your PC, click start menu and in the text box type “Run” and press on PC
    3) Now the “Run” dialog box will appear. Here, type “cmd” and press on PC
    4) Now type “CD C:\cinject_0.4.3\cinject_0.4.3″
    5) Now type “cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig” and press key on PC
    a) Now, on your iPhone, press “Install”
    b) Now, you will see a password prompt. Just press on “Next” on top-right on your iPhone
    (This will install the “jailbreak” VPN profile on your iPhone)
    6). Now, come back to your PC and on the DOS window, type “cinject.exe -j payloads” and press key on PC
    7). After it finishes, type “cinject.exe -w” and press key on PC
    8). Now, on your iPhone screen, you have to turn “VPN” ON. If you don’t know how to do it, refer to the instruction below. If you can turn “VPN” ON you your on, you are done!
    a) If you see “General” on top-left, press it. Now click on “Settings” on top-left. Now scroll up and just below “Wi-Fi” option, you would see “VPN”. Now press on the greyed out “OFF” to turn it “ON” and the phone will reboot.
    b) If you did not see “General” on top-left of your iPhone, then just keep pressing the keys, which take you back… You have to go to “Settings”, then select “General” and then press on “VPN” option below “Wi-Fi” option.
    9) Wait for reboot
    10) After the phone reboots, go to the second-right screen of iPhone and press “Cydia” and continue. After Cycia installs, it would reboot your iPhone and you are done!

    All the best guys!

    To those who deride the newbies, you’re probably a newbie yourself. Please understand that not all computer configurations are the same. If you don’t want to help, just keep quiet. Remember, you were once a newbie to too.
    Btw, I am an Android user, and I’ve never seen this kind of derisive comments to newbies.
    Chill out.

    • http://None Mind Rich

      Whatever happened to light sense of humor! :) Anyway lady, let me try to explain – Except for 64-bit versions of Windows, which this release of “cinject” is not compatible with, regardless of the computer configuration, the instructions WILL work for majority of windows PCs and where there are exceptions, they ARE EXCEPTIONS.

      DOS environment for all Windows PCs are the same.

      Anyway, my objective was to keep it as simple as possible. If you scroll up and read, lot of users were not able to do even basic stuff and hence the detailing. The “deride” part was just to add some fun. You chill too :)

    • They are idiots – why else?

      Danny I’m with you. Although not with you on Android :-). But yes, if you don’t want to help just STFU and stop insulting people. Mostly those that ‘behave’ like this are either 13 and under or are probably abused by other kids/adults at school/work.

    • Reza

      Hey, there are quite a bit of comments onthis pagepointing to your issue and how to resolve it. The way to fix this is you need to first backup your iphone with iTunes. Then simply go to settings and reset & erase your phone. once you’ve rebooted and gone through the initial setup stuff on your iphone, then go back to your computer and try the jailbreak process again. That should fix this problem. good luck.

  • Grime

    For guys having trouble with the cli jailbreak, there’s a tutorial on youtube that’s excellent. A nice clear step by step visual that should have you up in running in five minutes or less. Not sure about giving out links on this site, just search for “Easy How To Jailbreak iPhone 4S & iPad 2 On 5.0.1 With WINDOWS CLI”. Hope I helped, have a nice day. Give thanks to the guy that took the time to make the tutorial.
