There are various reasons why people love to jailbreak their iDevices, however it is also important to know that there's a Tethered Jailbreak and Untethered Jailbreak(tho this is stale coz almost every iPhone users already know what these are all about).


In a short form to explaining what this jailbreaks are(Please note this is for Beginners)



  • A Tethered Jailbroken iPhone is a process whereby you have to power on your iDevice by connecting it to a System(PC or Mac) using a Software e.g Evasion, Geeksn0w and the rest out there. Plus you have to put it in a DFU Mode(meaning Device Firmware Update) Because the moment you jailbreak your iOS and you allow it to turn off, it automatically goes into Recovery Mode. Paralyzing the iPhone until the above compulsory action is done and it could be very frustrating.
See screenshot below....




After the above is successful the screenshot below should be the response from Geeksn0w software, also take note about your iPhone as it flashes on and off.


  • An Untethered Jailbroken iPhone, even without saying a word you should already know that this is the real isshh. I mean no hassle, no stress no nothing! just jailbreak and move on. Turn on and off your iPhone no Probs at all. 



Haven't said that now let's go to the main topic:  Reasons why you shouldn't Jailbreak your iPhone 4 iOS 7.1 Tethered yet.

Today i finally took the risk of Jailbreaking my iPhone 4 running iOS 7.1 the tethered version and i just gotta say i'm not impressed. Basically the jailbreak works fine but the moment i started making some customization to it, it starts malfunctioning...

My iPhone 4 started rebooting and shutting down, i had to go DFU mode like forever! and why was this happening? it's coz most of the apps on Cydia weren't designed for iOS 7.1.

The following apps are currently not working on iPhone 4 iOS 7.1 Tethered Jailbreak.



  1. SBSettings: It installs perfectly but just wont work because it has been designed to work on iOS 7.0.6 and not iOS7.1.
  2. Winterboard: Won't respring after you apply a new theme.
  3. Hiddensettings7: Not working

So my best advice is that you should stick to your Jailbroken iPhone iOS 7.til Untethered version comes because apparently this bugs might persist until an Untethered Jailbreak comes to life on iOS 7.1. On this note Jailbreak your iPhone 4 iOS 7.1 at your own risk.

The only thing i currently love about the jailbreak is the Metro 8.2 themes working with 'Dreamboard. It's sooo cool. A windows 8 mimic brilliantly designed.

Previously there has been an authentic way to jailbreak your iPhone 4 but it's only Tethered version. Well apparently now it seems there's a leak somewhere that the same iPhone 4 now has an Untethered Jailbreak and we seem to have proof. 


Here's a video snippet uploaded on youtube by RMSiPhone displaying an iPhone 4 that has been jailbroken untethered



One of the trending question about the video which even a blind person could notice was that, the video did not show us any Cydia Icon, which makes people think it's still probably on a test run. Let's not forget that the jailbreak works only on devices equipped with Apple's A4 chip for now which includes the iPhone 4, the 4th generation iPod Touch, and the original iPad but leaves out any of their successors.

The picture below shows a jailbroken iPhone 4 powering up in untethered mode.





Another picture below shows that the jailbreak indeed works on an iOS 7.1 



And lastly the picture below shows the user shutting down the fully Untethered iPhone 4 (perhaps because the battery was low lol).






Above all, this Jailbreak hasn't come out yet and we hope by this week iPhone 4 or A4 Chip devices should anticipate for the Jailbreak process. For iPhone 4s,5,5s and Apple A5 chips ya'll can wait till a possible Jailbreak comes out(Atleast i learnt there won't be any jailbreak for them because the hackers and programmers e.g Evaders, iH8snow, Winocom aren't working on it basically coz they said they are keeping an eye on iOS 8 coming out this summer).

Pod2g, a member of the Evad3rs development team behind the Evasi0n jailbreak told iDigitalTimes that “there is a big chance the evad3rs won't focus on [an iOS 7.1 jailbreak] as a team…expect that for iOS 8.”

You read it here. :-)



While we wait for Evasion 7 developers to help create the iOS 7.1 Untethered Jailbreak, here's a Geeksn0w tool that can help you jailbreak your iPhone without much stress.



UPDATE: There's now an Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 Click here for How-To steps

Simply follow this steps...(PS: this procedures are for learned people who know about Jailbreak.

  • Followed by another "Booting With Opensn0w." To its success, GeekSn0w will show "Done!" And your iPhone will reboot
