    Check the list of fakes below of untrustworthy sites for jailbreak information and such.

    Any and all devices, on any and all iOS's from iOS 1.0 through 8.1 can be jailbroken.



    If you are currently jailbroken, please install Apple Conduit File 2 (AFC2add by Saurik), MobileTerminal, OpenSSH and ILEX RAT. iFile is not required, but highly recommended, even if it's just the free shareware version, NOT a pirated copy. We DO NOT condone piracy of any kind at any level on iPhoneForums, iPadForums and AppleForums.

    Even if you do not find any conventinoal use of AFC, MobileTerminal or OpenSSH, it is HIGHLY recommended that you still install and keep the packages on your device for troubleshooting purposes.

    You can view a list of common scams below.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Dev-Team works hard and on their own leisure to bring us their jailbreaks. When they come, only they can tell us. If there's no ETA on it, chances are it'll probably be later, and later and later. This is dedicated to telling you what devices can be jailbroken using which method on what iOS and is updated whenever news comes in such as Tweets about ETAs, etc. Any major news will be plastered right below this briefing and above "Latest Released Firmware on Your Device". Check this out before posting the same questions on "Can I jailbreak my iPhone X on iOS X.X.X" This is your one stop shop for that.


    News on Latest Jailbreak:

    10.22.14

    PanGu8 has been released for iOS 8.0 through 8.1.X support. At this time, it's strictly for developmental purposes until Saurik updates Cydia and substrate for iOS 8 support.

    06.23.14

    PanGu has been released, and it jailbreaks iOS 7.1, 7.1.1, and 7.1.2 when released on 06/27. Most likely support for this jailbreak will end with iOS 8's GM release if not by 7.1.3 if we make it that far down the road on iOS 7.

    04.22.14

    Apple has released iOS 7.1.1 which patches a remaining vulnerability used on Evasi0n7. With that vulnerability patched, it will be more difficult to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 as opposed to 7.1 assuming there are no "alternatives" at hand. This, however, DOES NOT mean that a 7.1/7.1.1 jailbreak will be released any time soon for A5+ devices.

    03.10.14

    iOS 7.1 has been released. iOS 7.0.6 has stopped signing completely. The iPhone 4S and above, the iPad 2 and above, and the iPod Touch 5th Generation CANNOT downgrade back to a jailbreakable version of any iOS unless your iPad 2 has both iOS 4 and iOS 5 blobs where you can downgrade back to iOS 5 ONLY. No other device has this capability. iOS 7.1 as stated above, is NOT jailbreakable, and will most likely not be jailbreakable unless you're on the iPhone 4.

    12.22.13

    iOS 7.0 - 7.0.5 jailbreak has been released in the form of Evasi0n7

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Be wary of
    fake Jailbreaks

    Remember that jailbreaks are ALWAYS FREE. Never pay for a jailbreak application nor jailbreaking service. Jailbreaks are very easily performed and are made free to everyone. You NEVER have to fill out a SURVEY. The Dev Teams will have the download links in their respective blogs/sites (and of course this sticky will have it too), and will NOT ask for surveys or payments. Your most trustworthy source would be here on iPhoneForums, where we check for the legitimacy before we post it up. ANY SITES REQUESTING PAYMENT IN RETURN FOR JAILBREAKING SERVICES AND PROMISES ARE FAKES. The download links for the major jailbreaking utilities will be provided below. These are the trusted and as direct as possible links to them. No surveys, no payment, nothing. 100% free. If the site/domain is trying way too hard to show that they're "legit", it's guaranteed a fake.

    • Any site that attempts to look like Evasi0n.com that is NOT evasi0n.com exactly. There are MANY sites that attempt to copy the CSS/HTML format of the evasi0n website. ALL FAKES.
    • Any website that includes pangu in the name, but is NOT specifically en.pangu.io or pangu.io
    • Any website that includes iOS and a number in any way, shape or form are FAKES.

    ETA of Next Official Jailbreak

    iOS 8.0 - 8.1.X - Released 10.22.14

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Types of Jailbreaks:
    • Tethered Jailbreak: Requires a PC when rebooting iPhone (respringing doesn't count). If you don't boot tether, you'll be walled with a Recovery Mode screen until you boot tether. No access to the phone's springboard whatsoever. You'll need to boot tethered using RedSn0w and such.
    • Semi-tethered Jailbreak: Requires a PC to get jailbroken apps working. With this type of jailbreak, you will have access to the Springboard. You can use stock apps like Phone, Message, Notes, Contacts, etc. But, your iPhone cannot use/start jailbroken apps/tweaks. It's kind of like safe mode in a way. To get the jailbroken tweaks/apps working again, you'll need to boot tethered using RedSn0w and such.
    • Untethered Jailbreak: Does not require a PC for anything except restoring if you want to wipe the jailbreak. You can reboot as many times as you like, whenever you like, and you won't need a PC to make stuff work again.

    FAQ
    Q: Can I Jailbreak my iPhone 3G/3GS/4/4S/5/iPad1/iPad2/iPad3/iPad4/iPad Mini on X.X.X iOS?


    A: Read above.....


    Q: Can I upgrade my phone to iOS X.X.X and jailbreak?

    A: As long as the iOS is listed above, and your device is there as well, and it says either tethered or untethered jailbreak available, then yes


    Q: Can I jailbreak my device even though it's not the latest iOS?

    A: Yes. You can ALWAYS jailbreak a device. It's independent of what iOS is signing. Example would be iOS 5.1.1. As long as iOS 5.1.1 is ON YOUR DEVICE, you can jailbreak it whenever. If your device is on iOS 4, you can still jailbreak, iOS 3 yes, iOS 2 yes, etc.


    Q: Can I upgrade/downgrade/re-restore my iOS on my iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch?

    two things, please:
    1) if we're on iP5 6.0.1 should we stay put - or okay to go to 6.0.2 if we want greatest possibility of jailbreak when available?

    2) if we want to buy an new iP5 - would places like Best Buy be the most likely place to get one with 6.0.1 pre-installed instead of 6.0.2?

    thankyou

    1) Stay on iOS 6.0.1. iOS 6.0.2 and 6.1 beefed up their security protocols and made some obsolete, making it much harder to jailbreak..

    2) That would depend on when it was manufacteured. If we're talking about the initial several hundred million iPhone 5s, then those would most likely be on iOS 6.0 or 6.0.1. If we're talking about a more recent batch that were manufacteured after or during the release of iOS 6.0.2, then those iPhones will most likely be on iOS 6.0.2.

    thank so much for your info. this is the first time i've waited to get the next phone because i just need my jailbreak for the way I use my phone. but it occurred to me recently that the timing of buying your new phone at or near a new jailbreak of a new ios is critical. buy too late and it will come with an unjailbreakable ios. so where would i most likely find a source of new iP5s with only 6.0.1? or is it just a crapshoot at this point? i just bought an ipad 3rd gen for my motherinlaw for christmas from MicroCenter that was still on 5.1.1 if you can believe that.

    The iPad 3 isn't exactly a new iPad since there is the "New iPad" which is termed basically iPad 4, so the iPad 3s that you would find on the shelves are basically an older batch. The last batch of the iPad 3s before they're discontinued will most likely be on iOS 6 or iOS 7 if that comes out relatively soon. Check the serial number and you should be able to tell based on the 3rd, 4th and 5th digits on the box.

    I'm referring to the iOS 5.1.1 iPad 3 you purchased and how it came with iOS 5.1.1 because it's an older machine from an older batch. iOS 6.0.2 came out on the 18th of December 2012, which translates to the the 50th week of the year 2012. On the serial, the 3rd, 4th and 5th digit should read 250 or lower, meaning 249, 248, 247 etc etc are what you'd be looking for.

    Thanks, Willerz. I wonder if the Best Buy store will let me pick one with the serial I want. I know the Apple Stores will not. Maybe MicroCenter. thanks again.
