Can I jailbreak iPhone 4S with the current jailbreak tool?

To answer this question you have to know that developers who work on jailbreak separates Apple devices in to two categories based on its processor. The first category includes single-core devices (iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G and 1st gen iPad). The second category includes devices with dual-core processor (iPhone 4S and iPad 2).

The first category devices with iOS5 can be jailbroken easily the Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze. The devices listed in second category (iPad 2 and iPhone 4S) currently are not possible to jailbreak with traditional jailbreak methods. So far developers have managed to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 installed on dual-core Apple devices. This patch really fast got caught by Apple and they managed to patch this vulnerability in less than two weeks.  As iPhone 4S comes preinstalled with iOS5 there is no jailbreak options at this point.

This isn’t end of the story and we have good news for you, as the hackers have on their hands more than 5 bootrom exploits to jailbreak A5 processor powered devices, the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

Who are involved in creating jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2?

Currently there are 3 different teams that have revealed to public that they are working on jailbreak for iPhone 4S on iOS 5 as well as the iPad 2:

Chronic Dev Team:

Chronic Dev Team is a great and talented team who are behind the well-known jailbreak tool, Greenpois0n. Joshua Hill Also known as P0sixninja has announced that he has five bootrom exploits on the Apple A5 chip. For who don’t know the bootrom exploit are low-level bootrom exploit and Apple won’t be able to patch them with simple iOS update, instead Apple should make hardware update to patch those bootrom exploits.

Jailbreak iPhone 4S with JailbreakMe

Jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2 untethered iOS 5 will be user friendly jailbreak which means that you will be able to jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2 on iOS 5 via Safari browser just like it was possible with JailbreakMe 3.0 for iPhone 4. P0sixninja confirmed that Chronic dev-team are working on this jailbreak and it will remain really simple for everyone.

iPhone Dev Team:

iPhone Dev Team have been behind many previous generation jailbreak and unlocks for devices bases on iOS, including iPad, iPhone, and iPod. They are one of the most famous people on iPhone jailbreak and unlock scene. Many trusted sources claim that iPhone Dev Team is working on releasing new version of JailbreakMe, the famous tool that was used to jailbreak iPad and previous generation iPhone. This tool will allow to jailbreak iPhone 4s by visiting single website.


There are plenty of rumors about Geohot and if he is working on jailbreak or not. Many sources claims that he has un-released bootrom exploit to jailbreak the A5 dual-core iDevices. There’s no official word from Geohot at this point, but probably he is afraid of releasing new jailbreak and unlocking tools because he got sued by Sony for unlocking popular PS3 game console.

When iPhone 4s jailbreak will be released?

Jailbreak iPhone 4S release date is not confirmed yet. All my mentioned developers are working hard to create a proper jailbreak for iPhone 4S but they haven’t confirmed official date when the tool will be available for public. iPhone Dev Team and Chronic dev-team don’t tend to release half backed and buggy tools, so probably they are working on final touches for jailbreak tool.

Apple dual-core devices (iPhone 4S and iPad 2) users soon will be able to jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2. Keep fallowing our blog to get further information on iPhone 4S jailbreak development.
