For those of you who didn’t know, there is an iOS 7.0.4 tethered Jailbreak for ONLY iPhone 4 (GSM and CDMA). Normally when a new iOS comes out there is almost instantly a tethered Jailbreak for all devices running an Apple A4 chip or below, because of Geohot’s LimeRa1n hardware exploit which takes advantage of bootrom vulnerabilities that are unpatchable. The only way to patch this bootrom exploit is to release new hardware and Apple has obviously already done that.
So why the wait for the tethered iOS 7.0.4 Jailbreak?
Simply due to the fact no one was really working on it because when a Jailbreak is being worked on, it’s developed for all devices at the same time that are compatible with that version of iOS. With the release of iOS 7 things were made a little more complicated since the iPhone 4 is the only iDevice running an A4 chip that is compatible with iOS 7, because of that it is simply not worth the time or effort to only release one working Jailbreak.
Recently though there has been a released version of a tethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4’s running iOS 7.0.4 called RageBreak. Honestly it is a little different than other Jailbreak experiences and it is said to have a few errors when using Cydia, but they shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
The version of Cydia that runs in this particular Jailbreak is modified for compatibility for the iOS version and the Jailbreak. It will approximately take about 20 minutes to fully Jailbreak your iPhone 4. If you have an iPhone 4 and have been waiting for a jailbreak and just cannot wait any longer, then this would probably be worth your time. If you would want a more stable Jailbreak with much more reliability, the I do recommend that you wait for a Jailbreak released from the Evasi0n team.
You can Jailbreak your iPhone 4 running iOS 7.0.4 by following the instructions in the YouTube video shown below.
Here are all the files you will need:
- RageBreak Windows exe for 7.0.4 (iJailbreak Downloads Section)
- Java Development Kit (this is a MUST)
- iOS 7.0.4 IPSW for the iPhone 4 (GSM and CDMA models)
- iTunes and .Net can be found through RageBreak
- Update Zip (see instructions listed below)
Those that want step-by-step instructions can follow the detailed tutorial here.
Update: There is also a Mac version available over at RageMasta.com, along with helpful tips and tricks if you are experiencing issues. Unfortunately the iJailbreak team doesn’t have an iPhone 4 to test this on, so we can’t be of much help. Your best bet is to watch the video and follow EXACTLY what it says, don’t try to wing this one it isn’t as easy to use as other tools.
What about iphone 5
Glenn Lind says
Does this include the 4S?
if it was for anything other than iphone4 why would they say JUST FOR IPHONE4?!?
There is a OS X command line version of this tool as well.
what part of the first sentence “For those of you who didn’t know, there is an iOS 7.0.4 tethered Jailbreak forONLY iPhone 4 (GSM & CDMA). ” do you FUCKNUTS not understand?
If you Fucknut see in the software there are more than one 7.0.4 with diferent firmware. Dont be the smart gay,im sorry guy :)
I get an error at the last step… Please help. It says connection failed. what do i do?
Thanks in advance.
blue- Arlind is a faggot says
YES DUMBFUCK. But you asked for “iPhone 5”, not about the different firmwares for the iPhone 4. If you can’t tell the difference between these two generations, shut the fuck up.
How fucking retarded can you be?
And fix your goddamn English, shit-tard.
I did this jailbreak OK on 7.0.4 bb04.12.09, now looking to carrier unlock iphone 4??? any help ??
Hahaha thnx smartGAY ;)… Now im 100% sure that you’re a Gay.. Piece of shit..
Arlind- the smartGay says
Sorry. I’m a big smartGAY. I’m also 100% that I’m “a” Gay. I believe Gay = God, which is why I capitalize the G. Skin my whole family alive.
last step i got connection failed wondering if i could get any help
… iPhone 4 got A4 chip and iPhone 5 got A6 chip,new bb itd.
WTF? Are you fuckin kidding me? Nobody can be that daft. I’m not a believer of a magical man in the sky or an immaculate conception,(primarily because there’s no way, especially back then, that a married man had never known the touch of his wife) but why go after God like that. As “blue” pointed out, (I’ll admit he was quite rude about it, probably an adolescent judging by the unskilled manner of his cursing) the article clearly states the jailbreak is ONLY for iPhone 4, ONLY. So, it goes without saying that anyone asking if it will work on any other device either did not read the article, doesn’t read the English language very well, or is simply fuckin retarded. That being said, nothing was ever implied regarding anybody’s spiritual beliefs, so I’m a little curious as to why you attack God in such a manner. Are you Muslim? Contrary to popular belief, there is nothing written in the Qur’an and the teachings of Muhammad, peace be upon him, that is much different than the teachings of Christ. And I really don’t think he would be pleased with anybody speaking of God that way for no apparent reason. So, my suggestion is to take your head out of your ass, pay attention, and have some respect. And “Skin my whole family alive”….are you a sick, twisted fuck or what?
when I install Cydia it say connection fail any help?
