Hi all

I'm not sure if we are allowed to post threads on jailbreaking/unlocking so apologies in advance if I'm out of line.

Just a quick one, I found this site and wondered if anyone knows if it's the real deal or is just a scam? Anyone used it?

Unlock-Jailbreak.net Easy Unlock and Jailbreak iPhone 5,4S,4,3GS iOS 6.1.3/6.1 and 6.0.2/6.0.1 Untethered

Also I'm in the UK and it's a US website so if it is legit would i still be able to use it?

Many thanks
R

Its a scam. The jailbreak is always free do not pay for it. Go and search redsn0w 0.9.15b3 it can do a semi tethered jailbreak on 6.1.3 but only if you have a iphone 4, iphone 3gs or ipod touch 4g. There are plenty of videos on youtube for the jailbreak.

Hi guys, thanks for the replies

Thought that site was too good to be true. Thanks MasterShake

chas_m,

I have a 4S. I want to Jailbreak to install Cydia but am confused as there is so much info on how to do it. I do not know what semi-tethered is??? I want to do it so I can turn it on and off without the jailbreak 'going away' if that makes sense.

I also want to unlock it as my contract is up and want to use a GiffGaff SIM (UK), as I understand unlocking is different to jailbreaking? So do I Jailbreak or Unlock first?

Confused?

Np, I really don't recommend jailbreaking your phone cause there are some issues if you install too many tweaks it could get slow and lagg. Also your phone could crash sometimes if your not careful. It is best to just use it as it is and maybe wait for a untethered jailbreak to get released. If you semi-tethered the iphone then everytime it reboots you have to plug it into the computer and put it into dfu mode and use redsn0w to boot it up. It can be a pain sometimes if your iphone goes dead and you are not near your computer. You wont be able to use your jailbreak stuff. You will only be able to use the basic functions like phone, text, etc. Just no cydia, safari. Hope this helps.

if you are new to jailbreak, do not do tethered jailbreak.

but I do recommend unthether jailbreak for some reasons. there are some great tweaks that make your iphone even better like auxo

Yeah and you can theme your iphone with winterboard make it look unique and add custom sounds. Even change the fonts with bytafont.

Great replies guys, thank you. I'm not gonna bother jailbreaking but I've spoked to my carrier and they charge 15 which is reasonable. I was just interested how to unlock it myself just cos I like messing with stuff :-)

Thanks again

regarding to unlock your iPhone, not it is a bit harder because ultraslow (unlocking method) does not support newer baseband and iphones. but for older devices like 3G and 3GS is easier to do.. but unlocking through carrier is the best and easiest way
