JailbreakMe: Browser-Based Jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch Released

A week after the Library of Congress’ DMCA ruling officially legalized jailbreaking, the iPhone Dev Team has released JailbreakMe, a free, browser-based jailbreak for Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Note that while the Feds won’t bust down your door if you jailbreak your iDevice, Apple has cautioned that doing so voids your warranty.

JailBreakMe is easy to install: Just go to on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and follow the simple instructions. Should you want to get rid of it, you can reverse it by connecting your device to your computer, syncing, and hitting ‘Restore’ in iTunes. Note that the JB works for iOS 4 and iOS 4.0.1, but does not presently work on the iOS 4.1 beta; iPad users may want to hold off presently as well, as there have reportedly been some glitches associated with the iPad jailbreak which may or may not have been fixed with the latest update. is reportedly being hit with heavy traffic, so you can also go to its mirror site,, for the same result.

Happy huntin’.
