So, they’ve finally done it. It’s not automated, because it’s a tethered jailbreak: ie. every time you reboot, you have to go through this whole process again, but it’s a jailbreak. Dev Team is still working on unlocking the bootrom. When they do that, they’ll automate the process.

It is not easy, but it is possible. I still recommend waiting for some program from The Dev Team.
We take no responsibility. Read everything before start doing something.


Firmware 2.1.111
Firmware 2.2.112
Boot helper15
Rslite16 %u2013 when you extract it, install the application libusb (it is in iRecovery folder) on this folder. In case of something happen, restart the PC in Safe Mode and uninstall libusb.
