How JailbreakMe 4.0 works
A lot of you jailbreak veterans are already familiar with JailbreakMe. Just like older tools, JailbreakMe 4.0 is yet another remote jailbreak for iOS 9.1-9.3.4.
It is developed by German hacker Tihmstar, who specializes in 32-bit security research.
Needless to say, this tool also works exclusively for 32-bit devices and you are out of luck if you own a 64-bit device.
It brings nothing new to the table as you can use Home Depot to jailbreak 32-bit Apple devices. However, an online tool is still better than an IPA that you must sideload on your device.
Moreover, you can use it from pretty much anywhere without a computer. You just need to have a working internet connection. That’s it!
The device and firmware-specific compatibility remain the same as in Home Depot.

How to jailbreak iOS 9.1-9.3.4 with JailbreakMe 4.0
Step 1 Open Safari web browser.
Step 2 Go to this URL – jailbreak.me
Step 3 Press the big jailbreak me! button to initiate the jailbreak process.
Step 4 The jailbreak process consists of five stages –
- Downloading Resources
- Downloading Cydia
- Running Stage 2 exploit (injects kernel exploit)
Step 5 Once this process is over, your device will respring.
Step 6 Cydia will now be present on your home screen.
Making it Untethered
Just like Home Depot, this jailbreak is semi-untethered. This means you will need to repeat the jailbreak process each time your reboot your device.
While this is not a hassle with online tools, repeating everything again can still be a hassle to some.
To fix this issue, you can install the UntetherHomeDepot package to make this jailbreak fully untethered. Here’s all you need to do –
- Go to Cydia.
- Add Tihmstar’s repository – repo.tihmstar.net
- Install Community Offsets package from his repo.
That’s all there’s to it! Your jailbreak will now persist even if you restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
Although I feel it’s a bit too late for such a tool, a lot of users will hopefully find it useful. It’s still one more tool for the jailbreak community after all.
