    Read this first!
    This will be a comprehensive guide on how to jailbreak all iDevices regardless of Device, Computer OS, and FW Version. I will try to keep this updated as newer software is released,but if I forget something or something is wrong just post it in this thread and I will. Feel free to post while I add in the remaining info. I am aware that there are other tools for jailbreaking besides the ones posted here and will probably update the thread at some point to show there methods as well, but in the meantime I will be posting as few different tools at once for the sake of convenience. Also as of now this entire guide assumes that you have no need of an unlock. It may be updated later to accommodate for unlocking but as of now it is important to do additional research if you really on the unlock.

    Terminology:

    Jailbreak: A process that allows iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users to install homebrew applications on their devices by unlocking the operating system and allowing the user root access. Once jailbroken, iPhone users are able to download many extensions and themes previously unavailable through the App Store via unofficial installers such as Cydia. A jailbroken iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch is still able to use the App Store and iTunes. In short it removes all restrictions from your iDevice.

    Firmware: The software that runs on your iDevice (iOS, previously known as iPhone OS); sometimes abbreviated to FW. The guide will cover jailbreaking iOS 3.0-4.1.

    Unlocking Unlocking lets you place calls with any GSM carrier by inserting different Subscriber Identity Modules (SIMs) into the phone. Normally these SIMs from unapproved carriers won't work. When your iPhone is unlocked, just buy a local GSM-compatible SIM, place it in your phone, and make your calls. You'll be able to use your iPhone around the globe without paying exorbitant roaming fees. This guide will not cover how to unlock your iPhone. It will ,however, detail how to jailbreak and upgrade your iPhone without losing the ability to unlock.

    Exploit: The vulnerability in the iPod that is used to jailbreak. There are mainly 3 different types of exploits:
    • iBoot: This type of exploit allows filesystem and iBoot access. It can be patched in a FW update. Ex. blackra1n
    • Bootrom: This type of exploit allows filesystem, iBoot, and NOR access and allows custom boot logos. It cannot be patched by a FW update can only be fixed in a hardware revision. If a device has a Bootrom jailbreak then it can ALWAYS be jailbroken. Ex. Pwnage
    • Userland: This type of jailbreak allows only filesystem access and can be patched in a software update. Ex. JailbreakMe

    iOS 3.1 Trust me on this. Save yourself the headache of tethered jailbreaks and new BootROM/old BootROM and just update to ANY other firmware.

    • Congratulations! Your jailbroken. You'll find Cydia on your homescreen.

    iOS 4.0.2 & 4.1 Note: As of now, this is Windows only. If you really need to jailbreak and don't have a PC, borrow a friends computer, run a Virtual Machine, or create a Boot Camp Partition.
    1. Download limera1n from here
    2. Connect you iPhone to the computer and click "make it ra1n"
