The original PDF (jailbreak file) was previously hosted at www.ipad2jailbreakpdf.weebly.com, however, it has since been removed. For those of you still wanting to unofficially jailbreak your iPad 2 on iOS 4.3, download the PDF below (open it). This is the same PDF that was originally hosted. It is recommended to wait until the official jailbreak is released.
As many of you probably know, today Apple released a new firmware for the iPhone and iPod touch, iOS 4.1. If you are currently jailbroken and would like to keep your jailbreak, do not update! There is currently two known ways to jailbreak this firmware, one way would be through redsn0w, another and much more simplistic way, is through an updated version of jailbreakme.com. Right now we’re just waiting on Comex, creator of jailbreakme, to release the jailbreak(s). Here’s the newest post from the iPhone Dev-Team regarding iOS 4.1:
Quote (via iPhone Dev-Team):
This time of year there are lots of new iPhone owners, and not everybody knows that accepting new iOS updates is the surest way to lose your jailbreak and/or unlock. While those of you who have Cydia or TinyUmbrella backups of your FW hashes will always be able to get back to 4.0.1 if you make this mistake, this doesn’t hold for unlockers. There’s currently no known way to revert your baseband — if you update your baseband you’ll lose the ultrasn0w unlock, possible forever.
Please stay away from this 4.1 release until a safe jailbreak procedure (which also preserves ultrasn0w) is developed and released.
P.S. There are a tiny number of iPhone3G owners who can revert their basebands due to a flaw in very early bootloaders…you will already know if you fit in this category!
As we all know, Apple decided to come out with their own version of multitasking in iOS4. The problem is that it’s not “true” multitasking. In this tutorial, I will explain how to use Apple’s multitasking bar with Backgrounder. This disables Apple’s multitasking and replaces it with Backgrounder’s multitasking.
This is great for older iDevices with 128MB RAM (iPod touch 1G, iPod touch 2G, iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G) because they don’t support Apple’s multitasking but it will still work perfectly using this method.
1. Open Cydia and download Backgrounder
2. Open Backgrounder and go to Global. Make sure “Backgrounder” is checked as ‘Backgrounding Method’ and “Fall Back to Native” is TURNED OFF
3. SSH into the directory: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
4. Locate the N72AP.plist (or N82AP.plist)
5. Backup the .plist file. Edit your .plist in any text editing software and add the following key after <dict> and before </dict>:
6. Copy the newly edited .plist file back to the directory on your iDevice (OR save it if you edited it straight from your SSH client) and REBOOT.
7. Open Cydia and download a package, “Remove Recents”.
8. Respring (or reboot if you don’t know how to respring).
iOS 4.0.2 for iPhone/iPod touch and iOS 3.2.2 for iPad was released yesterday, fixing the security hole that @comex exploited in order to revive JailbreakMe.com. However, for whatever the reason may be, iPhone neglected to release the new firmware for the iPhone 2G and iPod touch 1G. If you’re an owner of either of those two devices, you can easily patch the security hole with Saurik‘s (creator of Cydia) new patch via Cydia (you must be jailbroken). You can also install this patch on all other iDevices (and on all other firmwares from 2.x on up) if you choose not to update to the new firmware and lose your jailbreak.
To install Saurik’s patch, open Cydia and search for the package named ‘PDF Patch’.
JailbreakMe 2.0 has now officially been released. This the new jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 1G, iPod touch 2G, iPod touch 3G, and iPad on iOS 4, iOS 4.0.1, and iPad iOS 3.21 released by trusted member of the iPhone dev-team, Comex.
If you are planning to jailbreak, make sure you sync with iTunes first and create a backup just in case something happens to go wrong. Turn on your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, or iPad and open Safari. Then go to JailbreakMe.com. Slide “Slide to Jailbreak” bar to start the jailbreak process, and you will be given further instructions depending on what firmware your device is on.
This is currently the newest and easiest jailbreak for the iPhone and iPad. Also, many of you will be happy to know that jailbreaking is now 100% legal, but don’t forget that you will lose your warranty. Follow @TechGeec on Twitter for future updates.
