This timeline was written from my perspective about notable events I remember. Feel free to edit and add

I think theres some stuff here that isn't important enough. Like QuickPwn and dual-boot. ~geohot

Define 'timeline' !? ;-) -caique2001-


Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but from my recollection, the concept of dual-booting (as a possible exploit) pretty much naturally arose in the dev channel and cannot be attributed to a single person. However, we were only able to work around the check_for_suspicious_partitions routine in restored with some brilliant work by bgm, who solved the problem half an hour after I introduced him to it. We were then able to jailbreak 1.1.3, although we probably never released that particular method publicly since we believed that the soft-upgrade was sufficient. --Planetbeing 06:33, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Revisions needed

references to iAsign, iNdependence, sam+daeken bruteforce. Software 3.9 NORdump. TA_Mobile 4.6 NORdump. 4.6 GPIO block unlock.


QuickPwn has more to it than you may think. For instance, it is the first public tool to not require iBoot / iBEC / iBSS / and friends to have .patch files, it will automatically do a byte search and take care of it all.


Should they really be on the timeline? They shouldn't be treated as main event, but could include leaks in the actual articles of what was leaked. Just a thought. --JakeAnthraX 23:54, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

We have no differentiation between "main" and "other" events; it's a pure timeline. If you think this page should only list the "main" events, then a lot other things should go away as well. I think this page should list everything, just from a timeline view and without judging its importance. Other opinions? --http 00:03, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
No, I was just wondering. Usually leaks aren't documented very much. --JakeAnthraX 00:09, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
I am open to remove that if it bothers you and many other people. --http 00:17, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Later same day

Adam: Why did you undo my change? Was that an edit problem or intentionally? If you see a change someone intentionally made and you don't like it, then discuss. The wiki is not a wild-west place. Please clarify here why you would want to remove the "same day" part. --http (talk) 12:52, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

I didnt revert your changes. Must have opened the edit page before you clicked submit. All I did was add the [[]] to iOS --iAdam1n (talk) 16:18, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
No intention then. But actually you get an error page asking to merge the changes if two people edit on same page. But as your change was an hour later, maybe you unintentionally opened an old version and edited that? Then you get no warning afaik. Please just look at the recent changes after your edits, there you also see what changed and you discover any problems. No problem for now. And sorry I included the link change with the rollback (rollback doesn't allow partial edits). --http (talk) 18:14, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
No problem. I did not intent to revert your edits. TBH I didnt see you had edited it. --iAdam1n (talk) 18:38, 13 February 2013 (UTC)


Geeksn0w is now becoming a popular jailbreak. Although it only supports iPhone 4 due to the limera1n exploit, it is now becoming a semi-tethered jailbreak. I think we should include the dates of Geeksn0w releases on this timeline. What do you guys think? — Spydar007 (Talk) 15:57, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

I personally don't mind either way. --iAdam1n (talk) 16:51, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
