iPhone Jailbreak Matrix

When jailbreaking an iPhone there’s quite a lot to take in to consideration such as which iPhone you have, what baseband it runs, what OS it currently runs, what boot loader it has etc… When you figure out exactly what model of phone you have along with the other information you then need to match it up to the right jailbreak and unlock to make sure it works as needed.

The Jailbreakmatrix website helps make things a lot easier by showing all versions of the iPhone along with various boot loaders and basebands to let you know what you need to do to jailbreak and unlock it.

It’s a very handy chart to keep bookmarked in your browser and well worth referencing if you want to jailbreak an iPhone.

Just to show you what sort of things it points out. If you have an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.0.1 (the latest version from Apple [AAPL]), there are two possible boot loaders installed. Both can be jailbroke, but the latter of the two boot loaders cannot yet be unlocked.

You can find the chart here.
