If you have a 32-bit iOS device on iOS 9.1 – iOS 9.3.4, then we have some great news for you. iPhone hacker tihmstar has released JailbreakMe 4.0 for iOS 9.1 – iOS 9.3.4.
If you’re new to jailbreaking, then the original browser-based JailbreakMe jailbreak developed by Comex was one of the easiest jailbreaks to be released as it allows you to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using just mobile Safari. It seems almost unbelievable given the complexities of jailbreaking these days.
But tihmstar has achieved the impossible by releasing JailbreakMe 4.0 to jailbreak iOS 9.1 – iOS 9.3.4. JailbreakMe 4.0 supports the following iOS devices:
- iPhone 4, iPhone 4S
- iPad 2, iPad 3rd generation, iPad mini
- iPod touch 5G
If you have one of the compatible iOS devices on iOS 9.1 – iOS 9.3.4, then all you need to do is visit the JailbreakMe 4.0 website in Safari and tap on the “jailbreak me!” button to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
You can see the video below to see JailbreakMe 4.0 in action:
After you have jailbroken your iOS device, then you can untether the jailbreak by adding tihmstar’s repository (Repo URL: http://repo.tihmstar.net/) to your Cydia app and install the Community Offsets and UntetherHomeDepot packages.
Since it is limited to only 32-bit devices, JailbreakMe 4.0 is quite limited, but it is finally great to see the action in the world of jailbreaking.Kudos to tihmstar for releasing one of the easiest jailbreaks for 32-bit iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Earlier in the week, Ian Beer, a security researcher at Google, released the tfp0 exploit for iOS 11.1.2 – iOS 11 which could be used to develop an iOS 11 jailbreak.
