Not Sure Which Jailbreak Tool You Need?

July 30, 2010

If you've ever tried to jailbreak your iPhone handset before, you'll know it's not always that easy. Aside from the fact that your jailbreak tool has to relate to your iPhone (2G, 3G, 3GS, 4) and iOS, words like "baseband" and "boot loader" are thrown around like Frisbees - leaving those unfamiliar with the art (like me) more than a little confused. However, the guys over at Jailbreak Matrix have a solution. They've posted a table for each generation of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, detailing the jailbreak tool required for your firmware, baseband, and bootloader. Additionally, Jailbreak Matrix also gives a recommended version of iTunes, and the relevant unlock software.

So, if you're thinking of jailbreaking your iDevice following America's recent change in attitude, be sure to take a look at Jailbreak Matrix and find out which jailbreak tool is right for you. And thanks to lifehacker for spotting this!
