JailbreakMe 2.0 lets you install unapproved iPhone apps

The latest endeavour in facilitating iPhone owners to jailbreak their precious smartphone has arrived.

Comex, a hacker from the iPhone Dev Team has developed ‘JailbreakMe 2.0’, a completely browser-based solution to jailbreaking.

It requires users to point their iPhone browser to the site JailbreakMe.com, which provides detailed step-by-step instructions on how to bring Apple’s prized gadget to its knees.

There currently some minor issues with this jailbreak, with FaceTime and MMS functionality being reportedly disabled, but these are being ironed out.

Last week, US legislatures made it legal for users to unlock their smartphones for the purpose of installing unapproved apps and switching carriers.

It is however unlikely the law’s jurisdiction extends to the UK. Jailbreaking itself carries a small risk of bricking your device. As such, users are adviced to tread carefully.
