The well-known iPhone hacker and community member of jailbreak tihmstar has followed up on previous teaser videos with the release of JailbreakMe 4.0 in full. Described as "a fun project," the solution should, "theoretically" allow someone to run a 32-bit device with iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.3.4 installed on an easy jailbreak device.
Like all "JailbreakMe" solutions that have preceded this, tmmstar uses a bug inside Apple Mobile's Safari Mobile to build a solution that is viewed and run through the same browser in jailbreak.me.
Users with compatible devices running a compatible iOS platform version are invited to go to that website via Mobile Safari on the device and simply hit the "jailbreak me!" Button. The rest of this process is then executed directly on the device and must leave it in a liberated position. Simple, easy, and fun to watch. Of course, this is a modern jailbreaking, so it will not be true and true without a solution that comes with some pretty important usage warnings. First of all, as expected, tihmstar determined that "this is a fun project" and is now "released without support at all". The last bit is very important to remember. Usually, jailbreak developers and researchers spend long hours working to produce something that is beneficial to the whole community and going through repetitive releases to get rid of insects and make sure they are stable as they once were.
That will not happen here, which means that the new JailbreakMe 4.0 solution is offered with no support at all and absolutely no guarantee that this device will work jailbreak. tihmstar also recommends using existing HomeDepot or Phoenix jailbreaks for the same device running the same iOS version if this solution does not work. After all, this is just a hobby project with no real value considering the supported iOS version can already be solved by using other jailbreak tools.
However, this is another exciting development in the jailbreak community that shows that there is still a talent to connect and still experimenting with what might actually happen. When you put this release together with the exploits of IOS 11.1.2 from Ian Beer that could potentially lead us to the first public jailbreak on iOS 11 and iPhone X, you'll know that jailbreaking is far from dead as it was made by many people.
