Jailbreak Legal & Ready for iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch

JailbreakMe 2.0 has just been released and allows you to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch straight from the built-in Safari browser. No need to download any software or anything. All you have to do is visit www.jailbreakme.com from your iDevice (or alternatively, www.jailbreakme.modmyi.com).

Before you go ahead with the jailbreak, make sure to have a backup of your iDevice through iTunes – just in case something goes wrong.

This jailbreak works by exploiting a security hole in Safari when it comes to displaying PDF files. In theory, malicious websites could do something similar and get access to your iPhone – but how much access they can get and what data they have access to, I’m not sure of. It’s likely that Apple will release a software update to patch this hole in the near future, so this jailbreak will probably not work on future software versions of iOS.

iPhone 4 and iOS 4.0.1 is not yet unlock’able but Dev Team are said to release their iPhone 4 unlock within the next few days once they complete a private beta.

Here’s how JailbreakMe 2.0 works:
