iPhone Dev Team Releases CLI Jailbreaking Tool

As expected, the iPhone Dev Team has released their “Cinject” command line interface (CLI) tool for jailbreaking the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

This alternative jailbreaking tool is much more complex than the Chronic Dev Team’s Absinthe, and its advanced options are recommended for experienced users only. The related FAQ and official description from the team can be found after the break…

[The CLI will] help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow.  Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors.  The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single “jailbreak” option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.

When the iPhone Dev Team believes that the untethered jailbreak for A5-powered devices is as stable and bug-free as possible, they will release an updated version of redsn0w for Mac and Windows.
