Jailbreak iOS 4.1 iPhone

How to Jailbreak iOS 4.1

Apple has just released a beta of the iOS 4.1 download to iPhone Developers in the Dev Center. We’re getting a flood of e-mails with people asking if it’s possible to jailbreak iOS 4.1.

Yes, it’s possible to jailbreak iOS 4.1, but don’t expect an iOS 4.1 jailbreak just yet. Right now iOS 4.1 is in beta, Apple will release a certain amount of betas of it to test it first before dropping the iOS 4.1 update to public. After Apple has released the final iOS 4.1 update, you can expect a jailbreak. Remember, if you want to unlock iOS 4.1 don’t update until we know the iOS 4.1 update doesn’t patch any exploit.

The best way to stay up to date with the latest jailbreak iOS 4.1 information is to follow @QuickPWN on Twitter. As far as I know, the following jailbreaks may be released when iOS 4.1 is out:

  • Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with redsn0w – redsn0w is no doubt THE best jailbreak out there. It’s created by the famous Dev Team who makes reliable jailbreaks. It will definitely be updated to support iOS 4.1
  • Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with SpiritSpirit is the easiest jailbreak out here. It’s created by comex. There may be a Spirit Jailbreak for iOS 4.1, but don’t count on it as Apple could easily patch that.
  • Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with limera1nGeohot was going to release a limera1n jailbreak for iOS 4.1, but it looks like he has left the jailbreak scene for now. He did state that someone else may take on his work before he closed his blog and Twitter account.

Update: You can jailbreak iOS 4.1 beta 1 with redsn0w 0.9.5 beta 5. Download it for Mac here, or Windows here. If you don’t know what this is pleased don’t download and just wait until the final iOS 4.1 download is out.
