A few weeks back I covered how to jailbreak your iDevice, but now there’s a new, easier way to do it, one that also doesn’t require the use of a computer to complete. Oh, and it adds supports for iOS 4.0 and 4.0.1!
Now this jailbreak works on the device itself and uses a PDF exploit that Apple says it already has a fix for, so jump on the bandwagon and make sure not to install iOS 4.0.2 when it drops next week as it will likely break this exploit.
Ready? Here we go.
Apple may have added multitasking into iOS 4, but it isn’t true multitasking. What if you want something a little more versatile? Or hey, maybe like me, you’re running older hardware which according to Apple “doesn’t support multitasking”, or even an iPad which doesn’t have iOS 4 yet. At any rate, I would highly recommend you check out Backgrounder.
Here’s how to install and configure Backgrounder.
This week I’m going to walk you through jailbreaking your iDevice, this used to be a lot more in depth process, but thanks to programs like QuickPwn and Spirit things are easier than ever.
Disclaimer: This tutorial is only for iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch running firmware 3.1.2, 3.1.3, or 3.2 and users running any version of iTunes 9 except 9.2. This does NOT work with iOS 4 or the new iPhone 4.
Looking for a jailbreak for the newly released 3.2.1 firmware for the iPad? Sadly you’ll have to wait a little while longer, but rest assured we’ll be posting information on any new jailbreaks that are released.
