Table fixes

After reading the Jailbreak table I found a few fileds, which are (from my point of view) not correct. Please check these changes. If someone disagrees with these changes, please tel me.

iOS 4.0:

iOS 4.0.1:

  • sn0wbreeze supports iPhone3,1
  • sn0wbreeze jailbreaks all iPhone2,1 untethered (software untether from Star)

iOS 4.0.2:

  • sn0wbreeze supports iPhone3,1
  • sn0wbreeze jailbreaks all iPhone2,1 and iPod2,1 untethered (software untether from limera1n, I think)

iOS 4.1:

  • limera1n supports iPhone3,1

iOS 4.3:

  • sn0wbreeze Jailbreak for iPad1,1 & iPhone3,1 are untethered (uses Saffron's software untether)

iOS 4.3.1:

iOS 5.0:

  • sn0wbreeze and redsn0w don't jailbreak iPhone4,1 (maybe redsn0w jailbreaks it, but it is definitely not Tethered)

iOS 5.0.1:

  • the sn0wbreeze jailbreak for iPhone2,1; iPad1,1 and iPod3,1 is untethered

iOS 5.1:

  • sn0wbreeze is able to jailbreak iPhone3,1 (in an old version)

If you're sure these corrections are right, then please change them. — Spydar007 (Talk) 05:48, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Fixed everything listed above. I did not change PwnageTool as I can't check it.--aker 20:57, 23 June 2014 (GMT+2)

8.x table error

So I was looking thru the tables and noticed the iPad Air 2 had a 2 that shows to be a note for the iPad Mini 3... I'm thinking it should be a 1 but idk MWoolweaver (talk) 20:50, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. I've fixed it with how it should have been --iAdam1n (talk) 21:05, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

better clarification between old and new bootrom iPhone 3GS and iPod 2G

I know this isn't very relevant today but I noticed that the links used to explain the differences between old and new bootrom iPhone 3GS's and iPod 2G's don't really lead users to information about how to find if they have an old or new bootrom device. I can think of 2 ways to better show these differences:

1. split these devices ( old bootrom iPod 2G, new bootrom iPod 2G, old bootrom iPhone 3GS, new bootrom iPhone 3GS ) into their own columns to better show them as individual devices instead of them being shown as one device.

2. provide a link to the Old & New bootrom section on the Bootrom page to provide a better explanation off the differences and how to find them since they are not noticeable to the untrained eye.

3. do both of the suggestions above and 1.) add the individual devices to each chart and 2.) provide a note on how to tell them apart from one another

iPod touch 6G not supported?

So, I looked through the 9.x jailbreak list and was surprised to see the iPod touch 6th-generation left out. Even more confusing, it was labeled "N/A" for being jailbreakable on firmwares 9.0-9.0.2. When checking, I found the iPod 6 had links to IPSWs for 9.0-9.0.2 (like I expected)...

Is there a certain reason this happened? It may be a simple misunderstanding but I just want to be sure. --Citrusui (talk) 01:59, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

My jailbroken iPod 6th gen disagrees with that statement. I'm guessing it's a mistake. --Awesomebing1 (talk) 21:39, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
I've fixed it since it was a mistake. --iAdam1n (talk) 22:38, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

split the Jailbreak page into subpages, similar to the firmware pages, and change how the latest version of certain jailbreak tools is displayed.

after updating this page tonight, it took me over an hour to fix and update the details between iOS/iPadOS/tvOS 11.x through 14.x, not only that but because the page is so long and there are so many tables inside the page, it lags like crazy when reloading the page, let alone trying to scroll to the area you edited.

that time adds-up and because of that fact, i think it's time to breakup this page.

thus, the best way i can think-of to tackle this problem is by creating subpages (one page per major firmware)

for example: /Jailbreak/Tools/14.x

i think we also should consider separating the device types as well. /Jailbreak/[DEVICETYPE]/14.x
Replacing [DEVICETYPE] with "iPhone", "iPod", "iPad", "AppleTV", and "AppleWatch"

essentially this is mostly a "copy/paste" task, and it'll significantly shrink down the Jailbreak page, and you only have to edit the subpages.

and as for updating jailbreak tool versions, we can make a template for that.

for example: /Jailbreak/Tools/Latest_versions

we can just update that page whenever a new version of a jailbreak tool comes out, e.g: checkra1n, it'll save time.

i will build a concept inside my sandbox so you can see what i am thinking of, be back soon!

That'd be a great idea! I don't think we should make a page for each device too, but separating by major os version I do like. What we can do on the page is make the table have sections for iPad, Air, Pro, mini, iPhone, iPod touch, TV, etc. That way it'll fit the width better. --iAdam1n (talk) 12:33, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
sounds like a plan, we just need to build it in the sandbox so we know what it'll look like before it actually goes up on the main Jailbreak page. i'll work on it as time allows. -- DanTheMann15 (talk) 00:28, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
