EtasonJB is a new jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 that works with 32-bit devices. It’s an untethered jailbreak that has been developed by @tihmstar, the same hacker who created the Phoenix jailbreak for iOS 9.3.5.
Unlike the new jailbreaks that we’ve seen recently, EtasonJB is an untethered jailbreak rather than semi-untethered. What this means is that your device will remain jailbroken even after it restarts, unlike semi-untethered jailbreaks which require you to re-jailbreak every time your device restarts.
Installing the EtasonJB jailbreak onto your device is quite simple. You have to use Cydia Impactor to sideload the app onto your device, then run the jailbreak app to begin the jailbreak process. If you’re new to this whole thing or don’t have an idea how to sideload apps, then this tutorial will show you how to do it. Follow the steps below to find out how to jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 on 32-bit devices using EtasonJB.
Before we begin, make sure that you read the following important points:
- This jailbreak supports 32-bit devices only, which include:
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 5c
- iPhone 4s
- iPod touch 5
- iPad 2
- iPad 3
- iPad 4
- iPad mini 1
- 64-bit devices are not supported by this jailbreak. It only works with 32-bit devices.
- You can perform the jailbreak using Mac, Windows, or Linux.
- This is an untethered jailbreak which means that your device will remain jailbroken even if it restarts.
- Before jailbreaking, please take a complete backup of your iOS device using iTunes or iCloud.
How to Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 using EtasonJB Jailbreak on 32-bit Devices
Step 2: Connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your computer, then open Cydia Impactor.
Step 3: Drag and drop the EtasonJB IPA file onto Cydia Impactor, as shown below.
Step 4: You’ll be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password. This information is only sent to Apple to sign the IPA file.
Step 6: Open the profile labeled with your Apple ID. Then press the Trust button.
Step 7: Now go back to the Home screen and open the Etason JB app.
Step 8: To begin the jailbreak, press the Etason JB button.
The jailbreak process will now begin. Do not touch your device until the jailbreak completes successfully. Once it’s done, your device will reboot and the Cydia icon should appear on your Home screen. If the jailbreak fails, then keep on retrying until it works.
Now that you have jailbroken your iOS 8.4.1 device, go ahead and open Cydia to install your favorite jailbreak tweaks. Cydia will take some time to perform the initial setup when you launch it for the first time. After it’s done, you can start using it, but keep in mind that you should only install the compatible tweaks to avoid running into issues.
