[citation][nom]montezuma[/nom]That guy must have done that before the site that is hosting the jailbreak went all FUBAR. I have been trying since yesterday night and I still cannot get the damn jailbreak to work. Resetting every setting, deleting all apps, and going so far as to totally recover the device has not gotten this jailbreak to work for me.I am going to keep trying, but this has not been the best executed idea.[/citation]


their site really was overloaded though. i finally got on around 3am or so last night and jailbroke my iphone 4. thousands upon thousands of users+ per hour, plus tons of page refreshes for each user per hour... modmyi also has a link up too for this since theyre also hosting it, might work better there if jailbreakme is still swamped.

but, changing settings isnt necessary. again, theyre just overburdoned is all.

it looks to me like he took his iphone and then took a picture over an empty display. Those devices are normally connected to security of some sort.

I was able to get through last night. This was the best and easiest jailbreak ever. I just emailed it to all my co-workers. I want to do every iPhone in a store, then play dumb and ask a sales rep what this "Cydia" icon is for. God I'd love to catch the reaction on video.

Who is this guy mentioned in the title? The article only mentions that one MIGHT be able jailbreak in an apple store. Does anyone else think Tom's headlines are becoming increasingly misleading?

Excuse me, but everybody is entitled to an opinion around here. I think it is funny that you use the same freedom "free commenting" to deny him his freedom.

Is the yellow writeband on so he can slip it over the iPhone 4 to fix the antenna issue? Lol. He's prepared. Must be a boyscout.

If you look you can see the security cord around the botton left side of the photo connecting to the phone. It looks pretty much like the store displays her ein the DFW area.

Maybe I don't understand how the break works but it seems to me that the fact this can be done by just visiting a website indicates the presence of a huge security flaw in the phone.
