Welcome to JailbreakStation’s ultimate jailbreak guides, tutorials and free jailbreak downloads. There have been hundreds thousands of new smart phones and tablet users emerging daily in the mobile phone community. If we talk about smart phones like iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, BlackBerry, Sony Xperia etc in most cases people are buying these smart phones and tablets under an annual contract from different carriers. The phones purchased on contracts are mostly carrier locked means you can not use another SIM cards on these phones, so there comes the question of phone unlock and jailbreak iOS and Android devices.
Many people also think these are same terms but there is difference between jailbreak and unlock, by unlocking your phone you can use it for any carrier and there are many unlock solutions available in the market that even does not require jailbreaking.
In order to give brief ideas about the different terms and phrases used in smart phones community I decided to write this article, and I hope you shall get very useful information after reading the rest of this page until you find last section on how to jailbreak.
What Is Jailbreaking?
Jailbreaking is process of installing some exploits on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, that gives you access to the root drive of your iDevice and gives you liberty to install any apps that are developed for iOS devices, especially the apps or games that are not allowed on Apple app store due to any reason.
When you jailbreak your device an app called Cydia is installed on your idevice which works like an app store where you can search, download and purchase hundreds of jailbreak apps, tweaks and themes etc.
Equivalent to the jailbreaking is the term Rooting which is used for Android devices. Rooting also gives the access to root of the Android devices so that you can install the apps you want and manipulate the system files of Android mobile phones and tablets.
Jailbreaking does not affect the warranty of an idevice because if you restore your device by using the iTunes it becomes similar to the state when it was activated initially.
Tethered vs Semi tethered vs Untethered Jailbreak
A tethered jailbreak is normally an initial version of jailbreak, in which, after jailbreak if you need to reboot your device due to any reason you must connect it to a computer and reboot using jailbreak software like RedSn0w or Absinthe, otherwise it may not boot properly. In case of semi tethered jailbreak you can reboot your device without using computer but your Safari and Cydia will not work. Untethered jailbreak means your device once jailbroken will work normal even if you reboot when you need.
There can be many reason a person may need to jailbreak, some of which are:
- You want to unlock your device free using unlock software like Ultrasn0w etc.
- You need variety of free themes to be used for your idevice
- You want to install jailbreak apps that are available on Cydia
- You may need to get paid apps for free using some apps like Installous
- You want five column springboard.
- You want animated app icons
- You want to use different icons then the existing ones
- You want to change your carrier logo
- You want to change your battery icon
How To Jailbreak?
There are very few choices if you want to jailbreak free of cost i.e. Absinthe to jailbreak 5.1.1 and RedSn0w to jailbreak on older versions of iOS i.e. jailbreak 5.0.1, 5.1, 5.0, jailbreak 4.3, jailbreak itouch, iPhone 4, 3gs, and iPad1. Also you can jailbreak Appletv using the specific appletv jailbreak tools.
I have posted many tutorials on how to jailbreak 6.0 and other iOS versions using RedSn0w and Absinthe latest versions. I suggest to visit our free jailbreak 6.0 downloads and tutorials.

Welcome to our free jailbreak download area, there are very few famous jailbreak websites that provide jailbreak for free. The best jailbreak software which I found working well is RedSn0w jailbreak by iPhone dev team. You can find many other jailbreak programs as well like Absinthe jailbreak, and Corona jailbreak.
What is Jailbreak?
Jailbreaking is a process of releasing your iPhone, iPod or iPad from the restrictions imposed by the Apple for running certain programs and jailbreak apps. In most cases after jailbreaking you are able to unlock your iPhone to use another SIM card other than the original the first one.
Few days back the new version of RedSn0w 0.9.11b1 was released with new features of downgrading A5 devices and restoring your device without iTunes. After first update i.e. beta 1 iPhone dev team is continuously updating the Redsn0w by including new features. The latest update came yesterday, as mentioned on official blog of iphone dev team:
Version 0.9.11b4 completes the tethered JB support for 5.1.1 on A4 devices and earlier, including proper “Stitching” and “Custom” creation of NO_BB IPSWs
In the previous update i.e. 0.9.11b3 a problem of “Restore Failed” was fixed i.e. some people were facing the error of Restore Failed while restoring.
If you want to jailbreak 5.1.1 you can follow my tutorial on How to jailbreak iOS 5.1 using RedSn0w jailbreak tool.
