How To Jailbreak Iphone Without Computer?
Apple has always been very protective of its devices and software. They don’t want us to tinker with their operating system or hardware. The only way to get access to the hidden features of your device is through jailbreaking.
Jailbreaking allows you to install apps from outside the App Store, customize the look and feel of your phone, and even run unsigned code. If you’ve ever wanted to try out some of those cool new apps, then you’ll want to check out this tutorial.
Before we dive into how to jailbreak iPhones, it’s important that you know why doing so can be detrimental to your device:
1. Apple will revoke your warranty if you change anything about the iOS on your device.
2. You may void all of your data if you jailbreak and later decide not to restore the device.
3. All unauthorized apps are immediately deleted once they’re removed from the iTunes App Store.
4. Your iDevice could become a target for hackers who would like to take control of your device.
5. There isn’t much insecurity when running unverified apps.
6. If your device gets bricked (crashes repeatedly) after jailbreaking, Apple does not provide any support. They give no guarantee of any kind.
So before you begin, make sure you have full knowledge of what will happen on your device before you continue. This includes understanding how to back up everything you need to get the most out of your phone.
Also, you might want to do a bit more research online. Please read our article on the pros and cons of jailbreaking an iPhone. Then read reviews by other people who have done it. We suggest reading at least three different tutorials to see which one works best for you.
The first step towards jailbreaking your phone involves unlocking the bootloader. A bootloader is a small program that loads the main operating system for a particular device. It usually opens the application programming interface, allowing third-party developers to create custom applications.
This process can vary depending on your model number. Here’s what to expect from each of the following models:
Unlock the bootloader using DFU mode:
Connect your phone via the USB cable while the screen remains off.
Press and hold the volume down button until the Apple logo appears onscreen.
Keep holding the buttons as prompted.
Unlock the bootloader using DFUI mode:
Restart your device, connect it via USB cable, and turn off the power.
Press and hold the Home button and Volume Down button simultaneously for 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears and turns green.
Release both buttons and release the power switch.
Unlock bootloader using DFU Mode: Turn off the device, connect it via micro USB cable, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together till the Apple logo flashes twice. After the second flash, let go of the Home button and wait for it to restart.
For this method to work properly, you must have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer. You can download iTunes from here. Once downloaded, open iTunes and navigate to your device. From there, choose Restore. Choose “Restore from Backup” or “Check For Update”.
In addition, ensure that you have an internet connection and battery life. The jailbroken phones don’t always save their Wi-Fi passwords, so you’ll have to reenter them every time you reboot. You should be able to stay connected to Wi-Fi throughout the whole process. However, still battery life may suffer slightly because several components are being powered up for longer periods.
After the restoration is complete, you will need to connect the phone to iTunes. On the Summary tab, check the box next to the word Use for Backup and sync. Click Apply.
Now, we recommend you disable iCloud Backup. Do scroll down to Find My iPhone and tap Manage. Toggle off iCloud Backup. While the Phone app is closed, disconnect your device from iTunes and reconnect it to your PC. Open the Finder and locate ~/Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/. Delete this folder (make sure you don’t delete all files in it).
Now, back up everything important on your device using iTunes. If you ever run into problems afterwards, you can easily restore anything lost during the jailbreak.
If you’ve done all of these steps correctly, you’re ready to start the actual jailbreaking process.
Step 1: Select JB Menu
Open Safari on your device browser, type in “jbmenu”, hit enter, and click on the link provided. When the site opens, scroll down till you see the list of available methods to install Cydia (the one which says “Open Cydia”). Tap on Install. This will begin to download an “Installer. app” onto your device.
Step 2: Download RedSn0w 0.9 beta 4
Once the file has finished downloading, launch iDownloader (you should already be familiar with this tool). If not, click on the red button at the bottom right corner of the window to download it. Now, drag the installer.app file to the top left side of the dealer window and select Drag to Files List. Wait, and shortly after, it will ask you what to do with the file. Highlight the Installer. App and tap the arrow button at the bottom left corner of the dealer. Then, when prompted, tap Yes to confirm the action.
Once the installation is completed, open the Cydia Store and search for Pangu. Next, click on the icon which shows you that the jailbreak is currently active. From there, tap on the icon which says “Reinstall Cydia”. It will automatically find your device and remove any previous installations.

Step 3: Check Your Device Is Jailbroken
Head over the version number that doesn’t match the one listed above; tap on Restore to factory defaults. Once this is complete, you should now be able to use Cydia or AppSync within the stock iOS 6 operating system without a problem!
I tried a few things, but they didn’t work. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Jailbreaking – no computer, no USB cable
I have tried most of the methods posted here and a lot more. When none of them worked, I was about to give up until someone suggested trying to jb from an iPod touch. So, I did that, and it worked perfectly.
