Step-By-Step Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 4S Using CLI Tool For Windows


Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Redsn0w

iPhone Dev team just released an CLI tool to jailbreak iPhone 4S and iPad 2 for Windows users.

In this guide, we will take you through the step by step procedure to jailbreak iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5 using Dev team’s CLI tool. It’s only for the technically inclined and this should make it easier.

Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

  • This guide is meant for Windows users only, Mac users are better off using Absinthe, which is a GUI tool released by the iPhone Dev team. You can use the following step-by-step guides for iPhone 4S and this one for iPad 2.
  • This guide is meant for iPhone 4S users. iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users can checkout this guide, iPod touch users can checkout this guide and iPad 1 users can checkout this guide. We’ll publish a guide for iPad 2 users shortly.
  • The CLI tool will perform an untethered jailbreak.
  • Please note that jailbreaking your iPhone may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk.
  • Please do not forget to backup your iPhone before you proceed. You can refer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iPhone.
  • Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version (iTunes 10.5.3).

Step 1: Download the CLI tool from this link and save the zip file on the c: drive or whichever is your root drive.

Step 2: Double click the CLI zip file and extract the contents of the zip file. 

Step 3: Connect your iPhone 4S to the computer.

Step 4: Now go to the command prompt on your Windows computer with administrator privileges.

Step 5: Use the cd command to navigate to the cinject_0.4.3 folder where the required files are extracted.

Step 6: You need to execute the following command from the command prompt:

cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig

Step 7: You should now see a window prompting you to Install Profile on your iPhone. Tap on Install, then on the Install Now button, followed by Next (don’t need to enter any password) and  the Done button.

Step 8: You need to execute the following commands from the command prompt:

cinject.exe -j payloads

Step 9: After the above command is successfully executed and you get the command prompt, execute this command:

cinject.exe -w

If this is successful, you should get the command prompt. If you don’t get the command prompt don’t worry, wait for the scrolling log to stop.

Step 10: Then launch the Settings app.

Step 11: Then tap on General, followed by Network and then tap on VPN.

Step 12: You will get a VPN error (ignore it) and then in less than a minute, your iPhone 4S will reboot and at the same time you will notice errors in the command prompt, which is expected. After your iPhone 4S has rebooted, you should be able to find the Cydia icon on your iPhone 4S’ home screen.

After the jailbreaking process is complete, do not forget to checkout our article on tips to keep your iPhone secure.

If you’re new to the jailbreaking world and wondering what to do after jailbreaking your iPhone, checkout our jailbreak apps category page to find out the apps you can install on your iPhone using the Cydia app. Please note that some of the jailbreak apps and tweaks are still not compatible with iOS 5/iOS 5.0.1 so please be cautious while installing them.

Hope this helped. Please don’t forget to let us know how it goes in the comments and drop us a line if you hit any issues and don’t forget to give a donation to the jailbreak dream team for all their hard work.

    After the cinject -w command I turn on my vpn and I get an error “A configuration error occurred.”

    And nothing happens…

    I’ve tried this many times, with & without admin right, changed the cinject root folder places and still nothing..
    Anyone cares to explain? Maybe I’m too dumb for my cmd?

    • Pavliko

      This is all what’s happening in the console
      http://i40.tinypic.com/33bkft5.jpg

    • lowi

      I got the same configuration error, just click ok and carry on following the instructions, it will jailbreak.

      • Pavliko

        What instructions? It’s step 12, the last step, it doesn’t do anything it doesn’t even reboots…

        • OGT

          Restore your 4S as a “New iPhone” and proceed to jailbreak..!

          • Pavliko

            Wow, it worked..
            Thanks

    • ToyMan

      Same problem here any luck if so what did you do to get it JB
      THX

  • ryan

    cinject.exe -j payloads
    then i get error about FATAL (_LINE_) error any idea pleasae peeps!

    • Pavliko

      Maybe try cinject.exe -j payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig

    • RinosH

      If you’re getting 1266 FATAL error, Go to phone settings-general-reset-erase all content and settings. Of course BACKUP your phone before erasing all content. Then try again.

    • Aj

      I had the same problem mate but did what RinosH said and it worked. run the whole process again after and now i have a Jailbroken iPhone 4s

      • Jon

        But after you jailbreak you phone, and “restore from backup” on itunes, does it get rid of Cydia?

        • asdfasfdasfd

          No.

          Restore from backup (in the menu you get when you right-click your phone in the list in the sidebar) keeps it jailbroken.

          Restore (in the full size property pane) replaces the firmware and un-jailbreaks it.

    • Buuju

      If ur passcode on…
      Turn it off..
      Then u can JB without problem…

  • RinosH

    In step 6 after you enter “cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig” make sure you press “Install” on your phone before issuing “cinject.exe -j payloads” command.

  • Ali

    Everything seems to work smoothly for me, but when I go to turn on VPN on my iphone, i get a VPN Configuration Error, don’t know why. The Command prompt is just constantly logging whatever I do at the same time for some reason

    Any help?

  • Tomtom

    Can anyone confirm whether this works with windows 7 x64? Would appreciate a response, cheers

    • biggiechubbs

      yes it does. I got an error the first tried but did this

      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!

      • Chris

        biggiechubbs, thanks for the advice! Worked perfectly! And thanks for the CLI, iphonedev!

    • Steve

      Yes it does

    • mikey

      yes it does

  • sherwin

    yahooo just jailbreak my 4s success with no error… it take not more than 5min

    • Ali

      Can you please provide us with detailed steps? It seems the steps listed are not complete, many people are getting errors

      • You may want to check it out now, we have added more details and works for most readers.

  • wolverinemarky

    ok im stuck on step 5 guys what does that exactly mean guess im not as technical as i thought

    • Trizzcuitt

      Ok you will click on start on your computer…then search for cmd.exe you need to right click it and run as administrator …..then you will get to our command prompt and type cd… cd… to cd to your c:/
      after than type cd and where ever you folder is located..

      I hope that helps.

    • Steve

      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

      • Steve

        Do exactly that

        • OsriUzna

          The system cannot find the path specified…
          I am blurrrrrrr

        • michael

          true i did it like that and had my iphone 4s hacked in 2min

      • suthan

        as soon as i executed step 3, it prompted me on the phone to install the jailbreak profile on my phone, should i do that on the phone first or execute the rest of the commands?

      • wolverinemarky

        i get ‘cinject.exe’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

        • Steve

          Go to your folder on desktop open it and take the folder inside(same name) and drag it to desktop and replace the old one and try again. I had same issue

          • wolverinemarky

            thanks that fixed it, its working now

        • It means you’re not in the directory which has the files. Try to do a cd cinject_0.4.3 again and then run it.

      • nate

        that worked perfect as i dont understand the command promt thingy. thank you!

      • Angel

        when i get to step 3 is stays “cinject.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.”

    • rpbartle

      Hi,
      You have to change directories to the one that you unzipped cinject too. Use the change directory dos command “cd” as follows. If you saved cinject to the root on drive c under directory “cinject” the command you would type is “cd cinject” without the quotes. Then type “dir” and you should see a listing of the cinject directory.
      If the CMD window opens in another directory, just type “cd..” until you get back to the root and continue from there.
      Any further questions just let me know.

      • Angel

        It opened with the cinject directory and i typed in “cd” now what?

  • OsriUzna

    I am confused…

  • Steve

    How much do the steps for iPad 2 differ from this? I just did my 4s with no issues. Can confirm no issue with windows 7 64bit

    • Trizzcuitt

      I need help…..so after the cinject.exe -w on step 9 do you wait for that to finish or do you go right to the vpn

      • Steve

        I went rit to VPN, I’m not sure if you are meant to wait but mine worked fine, maybe wait a little if you feel safer. When your phone reboots and Cydia is there. You are done

        • asdfasfdasfd

          All cinject -w does is monitor the system log.

          It’s not going to finish unless you turn your phone off.

  • Bill

    Did it 2 hours or so ago on iPad2. Juz saw this thread, here to let u know guys that it’s working perfectly, no issues or whatsoever here

    • Steve

      Is it the same steps as the 4s?

      • Bill

        Yup. Juz that I switched VPN on right after cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig. And everything was done.

  • Mark

    i clicked Ok on vpn error but my phone wont reboot any help?

  • pepsi

    is there a password vpn account pod2g?

    • No, just tap on Next and then Done button as mentioned in the instructions.

    • Steve

      No just hit next

      • markii

        I don’t have a Next or Done button- just the “cancel” button on the passcode screen. any help?

        • iphone5

          Enter your iPhone lock screen passcode

  • dan

    Here’s the deal. I performed all the instructions, and got fatal errors.

    What I did, was remove everything, settings > reset > Erase all content and Settings.

    I then reperformed all the steps, and it took about 5 minutes from start to finish with the above steps, and i’m now jailbroken.

    How it helps.

    • Trizzcuitt

      Did you restore everything before …..or after the jailbreak

      • dan

        i’m restoring now…. after the jailbreak

        • Trizzcuitt

          ok so just set it up as a new phone then

    • p to the izzle

      This worked for me too. I was stuck at the point that it should reboot. Erasing all setting and content allowed me to jailbreak. I set it up as a new phone. Once I went back to CMD everything went very fast. Cydia is up and running and I will restore from the backup I made just prior to starting the JB. Kudos.

  • RinosH

    Works perfectly…………….just donated to the DREAM TEAM

  • Trizzcuitt

    Ok so i toggled on the VPN and i get the Configuration Error Occurred and nothing happens from there.

    • superam

      same here, did not reboot after toggling VPN. any help from those who succeed?

      • RinosH

        Read my previous post regarding FATAL error and try again.

  • Ivan

    Managed to get Cydia loading in my home screen… but unfortunately, the Cydia doesn’t seem to load and just wink when I try to press it, any help? Thanks!

  • thanks to everyone who helped develop the jailbreak, i got it working. if your not to technical, check out this video,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwl9FPHOw6o
    thanks.

  • JJ

    Just jailbroke my iphone 4s and everything worked out fine expect for when it rebooted, my Reminders icon was blank and white. It still works, however. Anyone know how I can fix that?

    • JJ

      Never mind fixed it 🙂

      • OGT

        How did you fix it?

  • DSF

    Does this work on ipad 2?

  • Helllp

    Hi iPhone hacks,

    I am pretty stupid when it comes to this stuff… I get cannot follow specified path after step..
    Either way im LOST will an easier method be released??? Past jailbreaks have been simple.

    • No worries, wait for Chronic Dev to release Absinthe for Windows. It should be easier.

      • Nick

        Thanks, any eta on chronic, (pun intended) 😉

  • wolverinemarky

    ok i did all the steps up to where u do the vpn part after it stopped scrolling as soon as i touched the home button to go do the VPN step it started scrolling again and didnt reboot once the VPN errored

    • Steve

      Eras all content and settings and try again. Worked for me

      • wolverinemarky

        ok gonna try this

    • Steve

      I did this fine on my 4s, on my iPad 2 my settings icon is showing up blank. Tried restoring from back up with no joy. Any ideas?

      • OGT

        Same problem here. Message and Wheater Blank icon! iPhoneHacks How to Fix it???

        • Steve

          I’m going to try and restore my iPhone to fresh 5.0.1 and then repeat the jailbreak process.

      • Steve

        Resorting sorts this out

  • Ninjafisk

    Hey

    after i entered cinject.exe -j payloads and started running it, it came down to “creating backup” and have been there for 10minutes now, what shall i do? Quit cmd, start it and go to the next step?

    • wolverinemarky

      it should have ended pretty fast as soon as u do the -w step activate the VPN and ur good

      • Ninjafisk

        Thanks, ill try that!

    • asdfasfdasfd

      What to do is wait.

      It is backing up your entire phone (just like iTunes), and it has more to do when it finishes. This is the step the actually performs the jailbreak. Don’t cancel it.

      If cinject crashes after making a backup, back the phone up in iTunes, transfer purchases, put it in DFU mode and restore, jailbreak it once it’s restored, and then “restore from backup” your data back on.

      All cinject -w does is watch the system log. You don’t need to run it at all, but you should so you can see what’s happening.

  • Wint

    THanks very much, works a treat, first time.

  • courtney

    i need help please!
    i saved the file to my C drive and open the cmd box
    i type CD c:\cinject_0.4.3
    then i type
    c:\cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig and then it says
    ‘cinject/exe’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file
    it does this every time…ive tried re downloading the file and everything
    PLEASE HELP!

    • Trizzcuitt

      Did you run cmd as administrator?

      • courtney

        i believe so, im the only used on this computer and i am the administrator. is there anything else special i need to do to run as admin?

        • Steve

          You need to just go to desktop and open the cinject_o.4.3 folder, inside is another folder named the same. Drag that folder to desktop and replace the old 1. Now it will work

          • courtney

            that worked!! thanks so much!!

          • louis

            the folder inside cinject_0.4.3 folder is named “cinject”….

  • Trizzcuitt

    OK well i just got it jailbroken…..lost all my pictures though….no loss on that.

  • chris

    Send 1: Result too large. ahhhhhhhh

    • markii

      what worked for me: unplug and plug back in the usb cable

  • daniel

    mine is still stuck on creating back up does it take a while?

  • Steve

    Can anyone shed light on the blank icons issue some of us are having?

    • Rick

      Restart seem to fix the problem

  • steepanddeep

    Awesome…I’ve been patiently waiting for this for a long time. Thanks for all the hard work.
    Only issue I had was that I too got the 1266 error and had to reset settings. After that, no problems. Woo hoo

  • ikey

    how do you run the file in cmd? i tried and it trys looking for a program to open it online??

    • ikey

      pls help….

  • i8worm

    Worked like a charm. Thanks

  • i8worm

    Command line would look like this

    c:\cinject_0.4.3\cinject_0.4.3

    Then run the commands there

    • ikey

      how do you run? it tries opening but cant find a program to do so…

      • i8worm

        Need to change the directory twice as I have shown

        • i8worm

          There is a directory inside of the directory

          • i8worm

            They did not explain that in the instructions…..

          • ikey

            i have done that – i’m here

            :c:\cinject_0.4.3\cinject_0.4.3

            but i do not know how to run the files?…

          • i8worm

            Run command line as administrator and copy and past commands one at a time. after your at the

            c:\cinject_0.4.3\cinject_0.4.3cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig

          • i8worm

            Make sure your folder is on the root drive C:\

          • ikey

            now i get fatal line error 1029 – i have erased all contents etc and still get this message – thanks for your help and any ideas?

          • asdfasfdasfd

            Don’t run as administrator (it’s completely unnecessary), run as whatever user you normally run iTunes as.

  • i8worm

    cinject.exe -w

    this one took a while. So grab a beer or coffee and wait it out

  • Juice

    Just a tip, the command prompt did not come back for me. If the same happens to you, wait a good 3 minutes to make sure it’s done. Then go to the VPN step. FIRST time I did the vpn it said no connection…I just tapped it again after that, and it worked.

    • i8worm

      This is true. after waiting for a while just turn VPN back on and reboot time.

      • kibo

        this works the same for me. dont wait too long.

  • Alex

    This works on win 7 64 bit, I did it, run as admin helps, but this jailbreak burns through my battery super fast before my eyes, I stopped background tasks from running but it’s so bad!

  • So.. I keep getting “FATAL(___LINE___)

  • Alex

    Also people are reporting of apple apps such as the camera icon on the home screen for me going blank until you reset your iPhone, others include the reminders app.

  • fingers21

    Doesn’t work for me when i run as administrator. Works perfectly if I don’t, just waiting for it to restore now.

  • kai

    how long should I wait for step 9 to finish? Already waited more then 10minutes 😮

    • If you’re getting a message in the command prompt that it’s rescheduling a backup, you can go ahead and proceed.

  • darrenbyrne

    I have been on creating backup for more than an hour and my iphone is nearly full of space, its a 16gb. Is this normal? any idea’s or tips, please thanks.

  • edjuk8r-212

    For those still struggling, I documented a possible missed step in the next article’s comments:

    Before executing the cinject-w command, delete your wifi profile. Also disable 3G, but leave wifi on (not connected to anything). I believe this will stop the ipad from contacting apple for executable signature verification.

  • OsriUzna

    At the end.. I managed it…

  • fingers21

    Ok, can’t restore after jailbreak and ‘erase all content and settings’ and i have no service, it is just permanently searching.

  • ikey

    still creating backup for -j payloads (phone was erased beforehand) any news on timing? think it is stuck…

  • Jon

    I followed the instructions, toggled the VPN, and then my device restarted, but I don’t see a Cydia app on my screen anywhere!

  • Renee

    I got to step 9 and it’s been 10 minutes. Should the command prompt have come back up by now?

  • kai

    it still doing something…. more then 30 minutes

  • tomtom

    when typing in the cinject -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig i then come accros an error – cinject.exe – entry point not found. The procedure entry point xmlTextReaderConstName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxml2.dll.. ANY IDEAS!?!? Thanks in advance

  • X

    cinject.exe -w

    How long did this step take for you guys? It’s been about 20 min now and the log is still scrolling.

    • If the scrolling pauses for a while then it’s good enough to move to step 10.

  • dust

    what to do at step 5????

  • ALi

    i’ve erased all data and setting, I’ve got to the point where i toggle VPN on and it reboot’s but it looks at if the command prompt has hung, is this expected?

  • ALi

    shouldnt the last entry in cmd be Jan 21 08:44:46 iPhone jailbreak[195]: Installing filemover… i have to restore my phone again.

    Keep getting “Bad file descriptor Assertion failed (1266)” on step 8. It creates the backup but when it says restoring i get that error. Any solutions??

  • ALi

    i’ve tried to jailbreak again,

    the last entry on cmd after reboot is “mDNSResponder[47] : D2DTerminate succeeded” Cydia has installed does

  • Eric

    I installed it from windows computer, and now have the brown cydia icon on my phone. When I click on it, there is a brief flash as a web page starts to load then i’m back to the icon screen on my phone. If I double click the home button, cydia is running, but I can’t get it to open for me. Anyone had this issue?

    • ALi

      i had same issue earlier, try restarting the phone. that fixed it for me.

    If anyone comes accross the SQLite3.dll problem, all you have to do is copy the SQLite3.dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\ into the same folder that has cinject.exe

  • darksideme

    SQLite3.dll error
    need help

  • yus00

    Finally JB my iphone 4s.

    Hopefully a fool proof guide.
    1)Before you start, reset all setting and erase data.
    2) After this is done create a new iphone in itunes (do not restore from back up)
    3) Extract CINJECT_0.4.3 to c:\cinject_0.4.3
    4) Open CMD
    5) Type cd \
    6) Then type cd cinject_0.4.3 and press enter
    7) Execute the command: cinject.exe -i payloads/jailbreak.mobileconfig
    8) On your iphone you should get a window prompting you to Install Profile on your iPhone. Tap on Install, then on the Install Now button, followed by Next (don’t need to enter any password) and then the Done button
    9) Execute the command: cinject.exe -j payloads (provided you did not do a restore this step should be quick)
    10) execute the command: cinject.exe -w
    If this step takes a long time (more than 30 mins – Then go to next step)
    11) Toggle the VPN switch in settings on your iphone
    12) Restore from Back Up
    13) Enjoy

  • kartman666

    Worked a treat…. Thanks To the dream team for all their hard work…… Everything worked first time… Very easy to do…..

  • xDimitrii

    Woohoow it worked perfectly on my iPhone 4S!
    It only failed the first time, but then I deleted all settings & content and set it up as a new iPhone and it worked like a charm!

  • t@r1k

    Thanks a lot dream team!
    If you get a FATAL error just erase all content and settings and do the steps again (don’t forget to backup!) then restore from your backup and all is fine!
    Where can I donate?

  • Sahid

    when the scrolling takes too long i turn on vpn connection and cancel it after and it speeds up the process.

  • billy g

    so after step 8 (typing cinject.exe -j payloads) it didnt work but i moved on to step 9 (and typed in cinject.exe -w) and the command prompt was scrolling and doing its thing and i gave it time like everyone suggested before going and toggling the VPN on and I keep getting the message “VPN Connection A Configuration error ocurred” and the Cydia icon hasnt popped up on my screen. I’ve also restored my iphones settings twice and started it as a new iphone. i dont know what to do to get it to reboot and show the Cydia icon.
    any suggestions? ><
