Those looking to jailbreak their iOS device, you now have an easy Safari-based option. JailbreakMe is a Web-based jailbreak exploit that will unlock the protections of iOS. Once jailbroken, users will be able to run apps and tweaks currently not permitted by Apple.
The Website looks pretty slick that actually seems a throwback to the original iPhone days. Users just need to point Safari to jailbreakme.com and you’re on your way. Note, however, you’ll want to backup your iOS device, just in case you wish to revert.
Version 2.0 appears to work on iPhone and iPod Touch running up to iOS 4.0.1, but the latest 4.1 beta is not supported. The iPad is also supported but it appears only up to version 3.2. The newest 3.2.1 update that was released a few weeks back along with 4.0.1 is not supported. A couple other things to note, it appears the process messes up MMS and FaceTime features.
