iPhone 4S Jailbreak Possibilities, Everything You Need To Know!

by Ahmed Omar on October 5, 2011

You must be aware that Apple has announced the iPhone 4S earlier today in its Let’s Talk iPhone event. In case you’re an iPhone fanboy, you might want to discuss the possibilities of iPhone 4S jailbreak on iOS 5 untethered or tethered. In this post, we’re going to show you the possibility of an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S.

Jailbreak iPhone 4S iOS 5 Untethered

In case you were watching the iPhone 4S keynote event live or heard the news, you would know that iOS 5 GM released today and iOS 5 public launch is coming on October 12th for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch customers.

The iPhone 4S comes with A5 dual-core processor which is already jailbroken on the iPad 2 using Comex’s JailbreakMe 3.0 userland tool. The A5  devices can be only jailbroken till iOS 4.3.3, the iPad 2 for example, since the Limera1n bootrom exploit can’t do anything to A5 devices.

You may ask yourself then why JailbreakMe 3.0 doesn’t jailbreak firmwares higher than iOS 4.3.3. That’s a good point. The reason behind that is that JailbreakMe is a userland jailbreak which can be patched by Apple in next iOS firmwares so it jailbreaks the recent iOS only then we forget it in next software updates.

It looks like that will happen with next A5 devices jailbreak. The Chronic Dev Team has announced that the team has 5 userland jailbreak exploits which means they’ll be available for iOS 5 and the following 4 software updates.

Well, that’s not the only possibility for iPhone 4S jailbreak. We’ve previously heard that the popular iPhone hacker George Hotz, better known as Geohot, has his own bootrom exploit which he saved for newer iPhones. In that case, we may not need to userland jailbreaks as we’ll get iPhone 4S jailbreak forever.

The 5 userland exploits of the Chronic Dev Team are all untethered jailbreaks so that gives you untethered jailbreak on iOS 5 on all devices including iPad 2 and iPhone 4S once they arrive.

We’d wait now to see what happens. Let us know your thoughts below.

    There is an Redsn0w 0.9.9b3 for iOS 5 GM !!!

  • Eddie

    So once the official iOS 5 is released next week we’ll see these userland jailbreaks for the ipad 2? I certainly hope so, I’ve been patiently waiting for some time now. I’m sure I’m not the only iPad 2 user waiting for a jailbreak that isn’t jailbreakme 3.0.

  • Jason

    im a little bit confused, when the ios5 jail breaks all come out will we get itouch 4.3.4/4.3.5 UNtethered jailbreaks? i don’t expect it from jailbreak me but with programs such as redsn0w?

  • Pzharyuk

    What’s wrong with jailbreak me? I have it and it works great I don’t see why you would have an issue with something that works perfectly fine

  • http://twitter.com/ipodguy79 ipod guy

    @eric that is the stupidest thing i ever herd … your ipad 2 with a cinder block straight through it still makes it better then a droid tablet

  • Lolomen3

    this is useless

  • Dino

    What about unlock?

  • Markus

    @ipod guy: You obviously have never seen an android tablet, hence your comment @eric. Android clan feel pity for you…

  • Yeah I said it.

    Obvious troll, is obvious. Go pack to your herd of droids’. Just like troll’s your obnoxious and rearing your big fat ugly head in other people’s fun.

    Hell yeah to the iphone hacking community. Hell yeah to the Iphone’s and Ipad’s. Hell yeah to the Greatness that was and still is steve jobs.

  • Duder

    Unlock for previous iPhones will come shortly after the first jailbreak. Sn0wbreeze will have to be updated to chop off the portion of iOS that updates the baseband & ultrasn0w will have to be updated to work with the new iOS 5. I am not an expert but that is my understanding.

    Who knows when the unlock will be available for for the 4S? It will be exciting to get it though, especially if it allows you to switch to the CDMA carriers. This will make my 4S irresistible to a larger market of people who don’t want to sign a 2 year contract when I sell my iPhone 4S to upgrade to the iPhone 5 next year. Muahahaha!

  • John Dhananjay

    can anyone provide me iphone 4 unlocked in delhi within 15k..

  • ORDY8991

    ALL of the other companies are copying of apple. NO-one can beat apple.

  • Fuck09

    Google it

  • Mattsasa

    it only works on 4.3.3 or earlier

  • _CL1CK_

    15k whats that ?(is it 15000?!) @John Dhananjay

  • Qwerty

    I agree Eric, dosent play flash, unresponsive keyboard, “can’t do this and can’t do that” errors/restrictions. Can’t download even PDF files from the inter web. But it does look great IMHO.

  • Julius

    Whats the dif with tethered or untethered?

  • Boobby

    no, 15 kilometers

  • W12345zhao

    for tethered, whever you turn off your device, you need to plug your device into the computer to boot it by “re-jailbreaking” while when you have an untethered jailbreak, you can just boot it up or turn it off whever you want XD.

  • Boudewijn Pleij

    so this text sais there are already untethered jailbreaks for ios 5 but not out yet?

  • Is_it-late-to-love

    Will the new one be available for Ipad 2 Wifi + 3g running on ios 4.3.5 ?
    DO i update to ios5 or w8 ??????????

  • Salamanderg3

    Will the jailbreak for iOS 5 unlock the carrier so will not have to put the gevey on?

  • Rey347

    i know its bad to ask when would it be available ,but what could be an APPROXIMATION for the release of the jailbreak for the ios5 specially for the iphone 4s? I dont attent to offend or rush anyone.

  • Lcornelius3401

    I’m right their with you bro…I have the iphone 4S and can’t wait for a jailbreak to be released…(not rushing or pushing anyone either lol) but i know how you feel dude.

  • Zhuhang

    i have ipad 1 with 4.3.5, if ios 5 jb released, i can upgrade my 4.3.5

  • Apples-or-cider?

    Na man, pls rush for a iOS 5 jailbreak. Then my iPad 2 will be as versatile as a droid tablet?
    Some people say apple products are designed for the masses. Ie, not very techi minded people. I think that’s a bad thing for me. I want a mouse wiv 2 buttons. I want to be able to download content to my device from sources other than iTunes (and iTunes=$$$). And most of all, I want to be able to do what I want with my tablet, not the tablet telling me what I am allowed to do.

  • Aaa

    Ahmad – 1 question – Are you a jihadi?

  • C14rulesall

    i am islam you racist bastard

  • Jonnyflyspeed

    can i install 3.3.5 so i can have that jailbroken on my 4s

  • Matmotor

    Without Jailbreaks Apple phone r nothing n once Untethered is dead I’m not sure anyone will buying next iPad 3 or iPhone 5 lol

  • Pako

    Can anyone provide a link where I can follow the progress of the jailbreak for the 4s? I’m not hearing any information at all. I would like to be updated.

  • Damon310

    There seems to be very little on when the 4s jailbreak will be released. I have looked very hard and found a lot of info that sounds like its not going to be a problem and it could be at any time but that being said I have no idea.

  • thevoiceofreason

    lol apple sold 4 billion in iphone 4s in the first couple of days, and theres no untether yet. as for that any jailbreak at all for those phones. So will anyone be buying it lol? i think your answer lies behind a little research and not just posting shit you have no idea what your talking about.

    only thing i can agree with you on is the phones are very annoying without a jailbreak. but people will always buy apples new products, some people( a lot of people) are just die hard apple fans.

    Plus apple is expanding its business into china where theres only 2 stores.
    Both stores produce more revenue for apple than any other stores in the world.

    Think before you post people.

  • thevoiceofreason

    I anticipate upon release of any jailbreak they will aim to make it useable on all devices. Just depends on what exploit they discover and how they can use it. ipod touches seeing as how theyve been jailbreakable/untethered in the past will most likley be included in that bunch. Seeing as how the 4s has a new processor and likley hardware upgrades to close the limerain exploit, the ETA on those is truly unknown. hopefully soon! were all waiting yo

  • thevoiceofreason

    iphone dev team they will update once any valid jailbreak is out. as for status updates i think pod2g is the one working on it now, or musclenerd, comex, i0n1c, check them all out on twitter and maybe youll find something out. its all very hush hush until everything is ready for the public.

  • thevoiceofreason

    first of all, rushing is pointless. it just annoys the developers and distracts them with drama rather than the real work that needs to be done which is jailbreak our devices.

    Some people just dont realize the significance of these exploits these developers find and make to get our phones working. ever heard of “a needle in a haystack” will the haystack has ASLR. Adress space layout randomization.

    So if you guys want to sit and whine about how your devices are so shitty because theyre not jailbroken then try and do it Yourself! Or wait, and be thankful that we even have people like that that are willing to spend endless hours helping us out for FREE when they could very well be making millions of theyre jailbreaks.

    Comex was so ahead of his time, apple had to hire him.

  • Hheelloo

    kiss ass

  • Skprods2

    I’m pretty sure it was 4 million, not billion…with that being said the rest of your statements are agreeable imo.

    As far as the sales, nothing is going to stop them, they make quality products and the jailbreak is like icing on the cake.

    Also the statement of “all other companies are copying of apple” (direct quote @ordy8991) is complete BS, while Apple reigns, they’re definitely not innovators per se. They didn’t invent the wheel, they just made things better with a clean spin.

  • thevoiceofreason

    what I meant was 4 million in the first weekend. Your right, I don’t think companies are copying apple. I think apple layed a lot of the ground work for great minds to build on. Even Steve parted from apple. Although devestated, he persevered started NeXT then pixar then apple again. I think resilience, style, simplicity, and the craving for something newer and better is what apple is all about.

    Not to mention they now have a stake in everything. Music industry with itunes, video with apple tv, being the only phone manufacturer to get subsidies from phone contracts. No matter how much some people hate apple, what eludes them is they are too big to fail.

    And I’m a PC guy.

  • Aerotangoo

    yeah right, keep trying to call attention.

  • thevoiceofreason

    “Jack” I think it’s safe to say, your a douchebag.

    Please don’t mislead people because you are so much of a square you need to post false claims for attention.

    If ANY verified jailbreak is release for 4s or iOS5 untethered (spell it right next time if you want people to believe you) IPHONE DEV TEAM Will Post it on their blog.

    Again, this will most likely not be for a few more weeks people

  • plorncho

    Can I please know when 4s can be jailbraked

  • Your Worst Nightmare

    Who ever replied to Jack is an absolute DICK, 1′ Penis!

  • http://twitter.com/alessandrawrig alessandra wright

    i have used unlockiphone-4s net to jailbreak it

  • RushingRiot

    does that work?

  • Anonymous

    no. it’s a scam

  • Gtmort

    dev team just jailbroke 4s it will be a few days for it to arive

  • Hheelloo

    the voice of reason is an annoying voice (see below), like bad karaoke. the point she is trying to make is rite tho. genrelly apple products look nice, but are really designed for thick people. they allow u do far less cool stuff than their counterpart products eg. blackberry phones allow much more flexibility. and the ipad dosent really support bluetooth, well not for non-apple prods.

    anyway, show me the jailbreak, so i can use this crypad2 as I want to.

    NOTE: Developers, please be hasty with jailbreak. the public are getting tired of the drama. i dont have shsh plops. (i know, its blobs.)

  • Anthony M Perez

    I have to get this off my chest:

    1. Most if not all of you on here, are morons that cannot read. Your answers to all of your repeated (ad-nauseum) questions are in the article. If there is any progress, I’m sure an update will be provided forthwith.

    2. Don’t “tell” these guys to ‘hurry up’ and get this done. Who in the hell are you to make demands? Are you paying for this service? When it’s done and and they are certain it’s ready for public consumption, then it’s their call – meantime STFU and be patient. And if you really need to bitch and moan, make a donation and add to the effort, instead of acting like a spoiled little bitch. God, you fu#kers make me sick.

  • Hheelloo

    where is the prison break for ipad2 latest formwhere? its crap, i get it as a present, so im stuck with this, i hear prison breaking itis good, but bricking itis not so good. i hearsome good people are prison bricking them for freedownload. and it will be unleashed, so i do not have to connect it to the macbook pro each time the screen turns off. Dual core is a gimmic, laptops have been dual core for 6 years, nobody made such a fuss. now the have 8 cores, still nobody shouts about it. i have 64gb memory on my KEYRING, i dont make lots of noise.

    ive nearly saved up enough dollars to buy a andiroid tablet, its been so long ive been waiting for ipad2 jailbreak. apperently, i can teather this ipad to my non-iphone phone and use my data plan on ipad. ofcourse if there is ever a jailbreak for this that is. i wish id listened to the people in the know, and bought a google powered device. could have tethered from day one then.
    Why didnt i just get a 3g ipad2?because the sim from my mobile will not fit into the ipad2 and pay as u go data is a rip off, when i will only need it occationally. even the touch screen sucks on this. i mean, which device dosent play flash these days, except apples?? at leaset give me the option of running flash, it the batt runs out after 2hrs, thats my problem, mr apple.

  • Cillout

    in some parts of europe they call it prison breaking i think, i guess its the same as jailbreaking, not so sure about the unleashed part tho. anyways. peace.

  • Mohite Sangram

    Is it necessary to unlock an iPhone 4S if its a unlocked piece itself (bought that way) after jailbreak???

  • Mohite Sangram

    I want to know if I buy an unlocked iPhone 4S from Apple itself and then jailbreak it then is it necessary to unlock it again?…I mean does it get locked or something if you jailbreak??
    Please reply..!!
