The iPhone Dev Team releases the first jailbreak for the iPhone 4

It was just last week that jailbreaking was made legal by the Library of Congress. Apple was quick to make it thoughts known on the development. "We know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience," said Apple in a statement. "As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably."

Well, the folks at iPhone Dev Team obviously don't care about Apple's warnings and have delivered the first jailbreak for iPhone 4 smartphones running iOS 4 and iOS 4.01. In addition, the latest jailbreak -- which works via Mobile Safari -- also works on iPads.

According to, all users need to do is head on over to in order to initiate the jailbreak.

A word of warning to early adopters though -- there are some early reports that the server are currently overloaded (obviously) and some phones are being bricked by the jailbreak.

Hey guys, if you keep getting stuck at the nebulae wallpaper after sliding the unlock button, I just found out from one of the comments in these excellent steps on finishing the jailbreak:
1. Reset all settings on your phone.
2. Fire up Safari mini, hook up to any internet connection, and open up
3. Sit back and relax as it jailbreaks your phone.
Hope this helps!
