Although much of the developing and modding is made as simple as possible for those not particularly adept to the ins and outs of iOS, issues can often arise, and what is often a smooth process can sometimes be a little tricky with a hurdle or two in the way.
Many of you would have rejoiced when Comex released JailbreakMe 3.0. Not only did it bring what will always be considered the easiest jailbreak possible, but it finally brought an untethered jailbreak to the iPad 2, which had proved a very tough nut to crack.
JailbreakMe 3.0 has received an "essential upgrade" via Cydia today, allegedly fixing previous issues that caused Apple's Camera Connection Kit accessory, BiteSMS, and sometimes Cydia (disappearing problem) to stop working altogether. Every iOS user who has jailbroken their device with JailbreakMe 3.0 is encouraged to apply this update via Cydia as soon as possible.
JailbreakMe 3.0 continues its steady growth with 2 million jailbreaks already applied since the tool came out (officially) last week. The news was delivered by Grant Paul (also known as @chpwn) via his Twitter account.
There are several ways to jailbreak iOS devices, but most of them are time-consuming as they require you to connect your device to your computer for the jailbreak to complete. Thankfully, JailbreakMe 3.0, just like previous versions, allows easy jailbreaks by simply visiting the JailbreakMe.com website, thanks to a PDF exploit in Safari.
Famed iPhone hacker Comex today announced on his Twitter account that he is working on speeding up the jailbreaking process for his upcoming iPad 2 jailbreak.
Just like how it was when iOS 4.3.2 was released, it seems like some iPhone users are having trouble when restoring their device to either stock, or custom iOS 4.3.3 firmware.
After all the furore surrounding the revelation that iOS devices have been keeping tabs on where they've been and saving the information to various log files both on the device and the computer they're synced to, Apple released iOS 4.3.3 to rectify the issue. But did it do the job? According to PCMag, it did indeed.
Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 has been released today to make the unlock compatible with iOS 4.3.3 on iPhone 4 and 3GS, running on the old baseband.
The iPhone Dev Team has released updated version of both Redsn0w and PwnageTool to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 untethered using i0n1c’s untethered exploit.
