JailbreakMe 3.0: Comex Fixes ‘Cydia Disappears’ Issue

JailbreakMe 3.0

Comex released JailbreakMe 3.0 last week, which is one of the easiest jailbreaking solutions, as it allows users to jailbreak their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch using Mobile Safari, without needing a computer.

However, some of our readers reported that they were not able to successfully jailbreak and install Cydia on their iOS device. They complained that they briefly noticed Cydia being installed on the home screen and then it just disappeared.

Comex has just tweeted that he has fixed the the issue:

I think I fixed the “Cydia disappears” issue, if anyone wants to try again.

So if you hit this issue and were not able to successfully jailbreak your iOS device then you can try again.

Few things that you should do or know before you proceed:

  • It is always a good idea to take a backup of your iOS device before you hack it, refer to this post for more details.

  • JailbreakMe 3.0 supports the following iOS devices and firmware, so please ensure your iOS device is running the supported iOS firmwares (Settings -> General -> About -> Version):

    • 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
  • Please note that JailbreakMe does not hactivate your iPhone, so your iPhone should be activated via iTunes first.

  • JailbreakMe does not unlock your iPhone. So iPhone unlockers are advised to use tools like PwnageTool or Sn0wbreeze to jailbreak their iPhone.

All you need to do is visit JailbreakMe.com on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad’s Mobile Safari browser and tap on the Free button under Cydia and then tap on the Install button, this should jailbreak your iOS device and install Cydia (as seen in the screnshot below) just like installing an iOS app from the App Store. It is as easy as that.
