How to jailbreak your iPhone 4 (iOS 4.0 and 4.0.1) without any application using JailbreakMe 2.0

A new way of jailbreaking your beloved iPhone appeared and it is easier than ever. So easy in fact, that it is enough to visit a website and you’ll jaibreak your iPhone without using a PC or MAC. I just jailbreak my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0.1 while sitting at the pool watching my son. It took less than 5 minutes and I had Cydia installed (and SBSettings and dTunes) Actually SBSettings is one of the main reasons I still want to jailbreak my iPhone 4…that and the fact I can used it for tethering.

OK, so let’s see how you can do it: All you need is to visit this website (Jailbreakme.com) and follow the instructions on the screen which are self explanatory. I included some screenshots to see how I did it. You’ll also see that it is an iPhone 4 from the amount of memory displayed in SBSettings.

The website is fairly hammered right now so you might need to try several times until you get through. Alternatively, you might try this alternative website as well, although chances are it will be hammered as well for a while. I got through from only three tries though. Again, you will need to visit the above mentioned websites from Safari and with your iPhone.

After everything is finished, Cydia should be available on your desktop. It took a while though to updated all the sources/packages so SBSettings was available about an hour after I had my iPhone 4 jailbroken. Got the 5 icon dock as well, of course.

Warning: There is a slim chance your iPhone will be bricked. A standard restore in iTunes should fix that and you can try again. Check after the break for screenshots. Read More…
