  1. Hi,
    i was wondering if this also works with itouch 3g mc with 3.1.3….? Or is 3.1.2 neccesary?

  2. I really does work, this is very great, have search in weeks for a jailbreak to my IOS4 Ipod 3g, and this … this is beautiful !

  3. THis worked immaculately. I typed in the address, sat down to have a cold one, came back, 4 minutes later, and it was all to the good. Just so you all know that im not a bot….google the armored car heist in STL, MO and see how one of the dummies was riding around with 1.5 million dollars and got pulled over and he left it in the car fleeing the scene…lol WHat IZ it!!!?!?!?!

  4. just done on a ipod touch 2G MC model with 4.0 firmware and it worked perfectly, i had just followed the guide
    thank you comex!!

  5. no go to cydia manage ,sources,edit,add and add appsync 4.0 and your done dont forget to backup

  6. Is this jailbreak thetterd or unthettered.well it worked for me smoothly. Greta work !!!!!!! easiest jailbreak ever made.

  7. Worked amazingly! I swear to god, the amount of time i spent, trying to find a program to do it, then trying to downgrade my ipod to 3.1.2, and failing. Slightly annoyed that i wasted so much time when it was really this easy, thankyou very much!

  8. [X] Did Work
    [ ] Did Not Work

    BEST JAILBREAK EVER!!!!!!!!! I’ve been a huge fan of BlackRa1n but after being retarded and not realizing I had to have the SHSH backed up BEFORE i upgraded to 4.0 I have been spending the last 4 hours (since around 3 am to 7 am now) trying to find a work around. Even editing the hosts file to try and revert to the remotely backed up shsh on saurik’s site didn’t work! Figured heck, nothing to lose, then BAM this baby cracks my 3G right out of jail no problem!! And to be able to do it via a website…..GENIUS!!!!!! :) :) :)

    Oh and the added bonus? ITS UNTETHERED SO I NO LONGER NEED TO FEAR THE DEAD BATTERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. It didnt work… now i can not use my ipod internet browser… my ipod is a 3G 32Gb MC model.


  11. whoa it worked!!!!! man that was easy! i’m a tech noob, so can you plug it into your computer? will it still work? thanks?

  12. Hmmm…it does not change even a bit!!! i have tried for many many timessS..m usin’ iPod Touch 2gen Mc Model..i wonder if i can multitask on it?? n how can i do it??? m so bad with technology(esp Jailbreakin’)…i hope any1 can help..

  13. worked great i have a ipod touch 3g 32g mc model running on 4.0 firmware. EXCELLENT JAILBREAK

  14. so bloody easy works for ipod touch 3rd gen 32GB iOS4.0 so simple and easy … works people .. im no bot .. i live in australia … loved this jailbreak :) thumbs up to the people whom have created jailbreakme :)

  15. to nathaniel and others …. this works for any ipod version .. but considering the 2nd gen … it doesnt support multitasking .. and once you jailbreak it cydia is added to the screen … from there you have to add a repository which is once added you can select the packages from that repo … which are appsync 4.0 then install0us which is the cracked version of the app store … once again this jailbreak is tested on a 3g 32gb MC ipod touch and is working on 4.0 jailbroken … for those of you who need further information you can write me on here be specific on what information you need then i will be able to asist you all :) god bless!!

  16. Hello, can i do this jailbreak on iPod touch 3g iOS 4? (I bought it one week ago, so i dont know anything))

  17. i have problem: it says: “file received was invalid”, i tried it many times, but it always wrote this. :( can i do something with it???

  18. just to let you all know … works for all iphones and ipod touches …. you must be running 4.0 or 4.01 only … do not update to 4.02 as apple has fixed the patch already and you will have a downfall .. this is confirmed working … you must do a clean restore … do not restore via itunes .. use and select the proper version of 4.0 for your device .. then hold shift while clicking on restore in itunes and select that firmware file … let it do its job … when you are on the home screen you can unplug your device from the computer and just navigate to the jailbreak with your safari browser on your idevice slide to jailbreak and wait 5 min .. you will have a surprise saying its completed and cydia is added to your screen .. press the home button and you will notice you have a new page slide your finger across and presto CYDIA … if you need further assistance you guys let me know .. it will not damage your device if you follow what i said … :) cheers!!

  19. jailbreak worked for me…now what? how jailbreak can be useful… i see some apps under cydia..can somebody tell me other features of jailbreaking…

  20. I just did this and Cydia seems to have installed alright. I Installed OpenSSH and Terminal, but I can’t seem to connect from my computer, and terminal crashes.

    I have an iPod 3G MC model (8Gb) running 4.0. Am I doing something wrong, or is this not complete for my ipod?

  21. i jailbreak mine and it work but when i back up my ipod all the stuff that i downloaded from cydia got deleted and now i try to download it again but it said that i need to downgrade to 4.0.1/3.2.1 so please help me

  22. I thought everything went well, It said jailbreak was complete and Cydia was added… But Im still not able to set a picture on my home screen, and I’m still not able to multi-task. When I went back to Safari, it said the installer crashed. What can I do? Please help!

  23. (sigh) Nevermind… Just realized that I have a 2nd generation!! :( But what an awesome jailbreak though!! Two thumbs up!!

  32. seems to be realistic!
    however, i’m on 4.0.2, therefore unable to jailbreak it.

  34. girlwhoaccidentallyuppto4.0


  35. I did this on itouch 3g 4.0 and my boot screen had a fucked up pattern. upgraded to apple ios 4.1 to remove jailbreak and it worked. limera1n here we come.

  36. How long does it take once you slide the slide to jailbreak bar? becuase I do it and the screen just stays on a blank safari page with the purple star thing background…is it just downloading the files?

  37. With WiFi:
    1. Open Cydia.
    2. Press to select the Manage tab at the bottom of the screen.
    3. Press to select the large Sources button.
    4. Press the Edit button at the top right of the screen.
    5. Enter the source URL:
