Jailbreak an iPhone or iPad with Spy Phone Review

What do I need to have to jailbreak a device myself?

To jailbreak an iPhone or iPad using the software and guides on this page you will need the following:

  • You will need the device physically in your hand.
  • You will need to turn off Find My iPhone (Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone) and this will mean you must have the Apple ID account password.
  • You will need to know the device passcode if it is locked with a passcode.
  • You will need to put the device in airplane mode (Enable Airplane Mode from inside Control Center).
  • The device must be running a version of iOS that can be jailbroken AND is compatible with FlexiSPY.  This means up to iOS 9.1 but no higher.

You then need to find out the OS version of the iPhone to see that it is running a compatible iOS version and can be jailbroken. You can do this by getting the iPhone in your hand and going to Settings > General > About > Version to see the iOS version installed.

Providing the device is running a compatible iOS version that can be jailbroken you can then download the required jailbreaking tools or watch a video on how to perform the jailbreak process using the links below. The estimated time to jailbreak a TARGET device depends on the person performing the jailbreaking process and their level of technical knowledge and familiarity with iOS devices. However jailbreaking can usually be done within 5 – 10 minutes.

What version of iOS can be jailbroken?

Once you have made sure the iPhone or iPad is running a compatible iOS version which can be jailbroken simply follow our tutorials below to learn how to easily jailbreak the device.

How can I get you to jailbreak the device for me?

Thanks to FlexiSPY’s worry-free Installation Service you can now get your device  jailbroken by a trained technician as well as full installation of FlexiSPY if the device is successfully jailbroken.

Name of Service:

Worry-Free Installation

What is it?

The FlexiSPY approved rooting partner can remotely jailbreak your iPhone, install FlexiSPY and give a brief introduction to your account dashboard.

How much is it?

Service is an optional $39.99, in addition to your FlexiSPY license.

How do I get it?

During checkout, simply click the “Add” button next to “Worry Free Installation Service”.

I already bought FlexiSPY. Can I buy the install service separately? 

You may purchase from the official Install Service web page at http://www.flexispy.com/en/flexispy-remote-installation-service-standalone.htm.

How does it work, what do I do next?

After purchase, an email is sent with a link to open a chat directly with the install team. You’ll need the target phone in your hands for the installation.

    the link you just sent after I downloaded it I hit the green button and it popped up their website I have version 8.0.2 is that why

  • Theresa

    yes it is in Chinese but it says iTunes next to the Chinese word next to the red x

    • Hello Theresa.

      Please uninstall it and install the version in the last comment reply and it should be in English.

  • Theresa

    it says iTune in English next to the Chinese with the red X

    • Hello Theresa.

      Any chance of a picture so we can see the issue? if not, follow the previous comment reply we gave. Uninstall iTunes, and install the latest version and also uninstall and reinstall the jailbreak tool as it sounds like, from what you said, it is not in English? Is that correct?

    when I start the taig app I click the green button and it loads for a second and the green button re appears what does this mean

    • Hello Theresa.

      There is no need to downgrade iTunes for this. Make sure you have turned off Find my iPhone on the device and turned off any passcodes. Please also uninstall the jailbreak tool you installed and download and install the one below (it should be in English),

      http://apt.taig.com/installer/TaiGJBreak_1010.zip

      Run it again and let us know what happens. We would also recommend uninstalling iTunes as well and download the latest version from the Apple website below and trying again.

    my computer will not install the iTunes link you sent me it downloads it but then says an error occurred during the installation I have tried 3 times do you know why it would be doing this

    • Hello Theresa.

      Try jailbreaking just with the iTunes version installed on the PC you are using first. If that works, that is great, if it doesn’t, let us know if the jailbreak software displays any error messages and we can assist you further.

    also do i need a certain iTunes to do this i just downloaded the newest version

  • Theresa

    wow ok thank you for finally giving me the answer i have been looking for have been trying forever through a number of different people

  • Theresa

    could I jailbreak it using another method? or would one of these methods work. because i cant change the version it will only update me to 9.1 and that version isn’t supported by flexispy

    • Hello Theresa.

      The link for iOS 8.1.1 should work for that device. You cannot change the version of iOS as it will update to iOS 9.1 which cannot be jailbroken at this time.

  • Theresa

    I have version 8.0.2 and that version is not listed on the above list what could I do I already bought the software

    • Hello Theresa,

      Use the link given for iOS 8.1.1. This should jailbreak 8.1.1 and below, including iOS 8.0.2.

    Before I buy this software i was told that Jail braking can be reversed, now when I chat they says it can’t be done.
    I reset to factory setting and it is not going back to the factory setting. I have iso 8.4. how can I remove the flexispy software and reverse the jail brake?

    • Hello Jenaka.

      The only way to reverse a jailbreak is to factory restore the device. This will usually also install the latest version of iOS as the update process and the device is restored. This is normal. So, the easiest answer to your question is to restore the device but there is no guarantee that the software will work on iOS 9 at this time, the latest version supported is iOS 8.4.1.

          You need to restore back to iOS 8.4 whilst you still can and then jailbreak it to install the software.

    when installing evasion 7 for ios 7.x, i got the ERROR: failed to retrieve package from the internet. please help¡¡¡

    • Hello Arturo.

      Solving this issue may be a little complex but here goes.

      On your Mac, go to your “Applications” folder.

      Now navigate to the “Utilities” folder.

      Launch “Terminal”.

      Type “sudo nano /etc/hosts” (without quotes) and hit return.

      Enter your password. You won’t see anything change on-screen when you type your password; this is normal.

      Use the down arrow key to scroll to the bottom and enter a new blank line.

      The line should read:

      97.89.129.19 evasi0n.com

      Exit the nano editor by pressing Ctrl+X, followed by Y, and return.

      Close Evasi0n if open, then open Evasi0n. You should be able to jailbreak.

      Once jailbroken, follow the above steps to erase the line you added.

      Windows:

      Click Start, followed by Programs and Accessories.

      Right-click Notepad and choose “Run as Administrator”. On Windows XP, if
      your account is an administrator, you can simply click to open Notepad,
      otherwise you’ll need to choose “Run As…”

      Click “Open” from File menu.

      Browse to C:WindowsSystem32driversetc.

      In the dropdown menu that says “Text Documents (*.txt)”, select All Files.

      Double-click on “hosts”.

      Use the down arrow key to scroll to the bottom and enter a new blank line.

      The line should read:

      97.89.129.19 evasi0n.com

      Click “Save” from the File menu.

      Close Evasi0n if open. Open Evasi0n and jailbreak.

      After jailbreaking, repeat above steps but delete the line you added.

  • Vanessa

    i have noted that once iphone has been jailbroken, some apps such as banking apps do not work anymore, give out messages such as “this app will not work on jailbroken phone” thereby making it evident to the phone owner that the phone is jailbroken and there is spyware on it.

    Is there anyway to “hide” the jailbreaking of the phone or get these apps to still work?

    • Hello Vanessa.

      First of all there are many legitimate reasons for jailbreaking a device. Jailbreaking is not just for installing what you assume to be ‘spyware’. Many legitimate applications also require jailbreaking in order to work. That message means that the device has been jailbroken, nothing more. It does not mean that there is spyware on the device or anything like that.

      These applications simply will not work on a jailbroken device purely because they are for use with financial data which could be compromised because the device has been jailbroken. It is just the application manufacturers way of trying to minimise the chances of banking information being stolen and you cannot get these applications to work any other way except to factory restore the device.

      Doing that means you lose the jailbreak so you can either have a jailbroken device or working banking applications but not both.

    I have a Mac and I want to jailbreak an iPhone 5 with IOS 8.4. There doesn’t seem to be software for that. Can you provide a link if possible?

    • Hello Susan.

      The creators of the jailbreak software (this is not us) have not made a Mac version of the tool. You must either use a PC to perform the jailbreak or install Windows on to your Mac and use that to perform the jailbreak.

    Do you know of guides for jailbreaking an iOS 6.1.4, or tuts/website that produce reliable guides? Is the iphonehacks-d.ot-com a reputable source for good jailbreaking tutorials, such as the one they list for iOS 6.1.4? I know you can’t guarantee or support jailbreaking, but I didn’t know if there’s any guide/website you’d recommend?

    many thanks

    • Hello Daniel.

      If possible, it is easiest to just upgrade the iOS to the latest version and jailbreak that. There are no reliable jailbreaks for iOS 6.1.4.

      For Mac OS X:

      On your Mac, go to your “Applications” folder. Now navigate to the “Utilities” folder. Launch “Terminal”. Type “sudo nano /etc/hosts” (without quotes) and hit return. Enter your password.

    • Hello Aremo.

      How is the device connecting to the internet? Please check that to see if there is internet connectivity (try wifi and GPRS). Also, you may wish to visit the actual evasi0n website to download the latest jailbreak software if they have released a newer version.

      Also, try a different PC as well as that may also be an issue.

    FB messenger update V31.0 was published for IOS only one week after Flexispy new version is released, now Flexispy is no longer compatible and we only had one week of FB messenger monitoring which is not possible by now. FB messenger in itunes page are stating that they “update the app around every two weeks so it continues to work great for you.” Knowing that Flexispy updates usually take longer (In the scale of Weeks) to come to life this means that we may never consider monitoring FB messenger in the future or at best it maybe possible for couples of days not exceeding a week over a long period of time…

    https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/messenger/id454638411?mt=8

    • Hello James.

      Because FlexiSPY captures the most IM chat data it takes a long time to update the software to work with each new IM release.

      We are sure you would prefer not to just get quicker updates to support the latest IM versions at the expense of just capturing only the text from every IM conversation with no captured IM media or formatting.

      The FlexiSPY team is aware of all these updates to every IM version and they are working to make the software compatible which takes time if you want to capture all the IM conversation.

      As soon as the software is compatible you should see an update in your online portal.

      Spy Phone Review.

      • James

        I can understand the technical limitations you are facing with IMs updates. However considering the frequency of IOS FB messenger releases (Officially every one week to two weeks), Flexispy is losing the pace here and we will benefit only for few days from Flexispy updates and the hard work and effort your team invested into getting the IM applications compatible .
        This brings me to suggest to release a preliminary Flexispy update that supports only plain text, then a second one supporting media and formatting? Any other solution from your side is highly appreciated.

        Have you also thought of a tweek to control the automatic updates in IOS, this way amking any update available only if it is compatible with Flexispy?

        Thank you!

        • Hello James.

          Thank you for the suggestions. All we can suggest is that you mention your thoughts to FlexISPY through their support site and maybe they will redesign the software as you are requesting.

    • Hello Im.

      Once the device has been jailbroken it will perform exactly the same as it did before. Nome of the installed programs or settings will be affected by the jailbreak. The process of removing the jailbreak means factory restoring the device which will upgrade the IOS version to 8.3 which cannot be jailbroken and so if you do that then FlexiSPY cannot be used.

    Hello Spyphonereview! I’m trying to jailbreak my husband’s iphone 6 running on iOS 8.2. I know currently there’s no way to jailbreak. Are there any forecasts on when it will be available? Also is there a way to prevent the phone from notifying the user when a new iOS version comes out? I understand that when Apple releases new iOS versions, a red #1 will appear on the settings icon and updating the iOS will undo the Jailbreak. Is there any way to prevent the system from notifying from new iOS releases?

      First of all try another USB port or cable to see if that makes a difference. Also make sure you are using the latest version of Pangu. Updating iTunes to the latest version and then connecting the device and seeing if iTunes itself can recognise it or not is also recommended.

    Hi there,
    I am having trouble opening Pangu because it says my iTunes is older andneeds to be 11.1 or more to do the jailbreak – but Ive backed up my phone to iTunes and it says it’s using the latest version (12) so I don’t know what to do.

    • Hello Julie.

      If you are using a PC right-click the Pangu file and choose Run as Administrator and try again.

      Also verify that your iTunes is up to date. The latest version is 12.1 we believe.

    On an Iphone 6 with IOS 8.1.2
    If the phone is jailbroken and the product is installed, will the jailbroken phone be restored to its original state once the product is uninstalled?
    I am wondering if in the future there was a problem with the phone would it be clear that it had once been jailbroken?

      Windows 8 is fine for jailbreaking so it is not the OS version. When you connect the device to the computer does iTunes recognise it or not? If it doesn’t then Taig won’t see it either. Have you tried a different iPhone USB cable or USB port on your PC?

  • Aren

    The instructions above to jailbreak a phone indicate that the target’s phone cannot have a passcode. The target’s phone has a 4 digit passcode to initiate using the phone. Is that the passcode the phone cannot have? If so, how would I get rid of that passcode and then restore it?

    • Hello Aren.

      You are correct. The passcode would be the 4 digit passcode you mention and it must be turned off in order to be able to jailbreak the device.

      Unfortunately if you do not know what the passcode is then there is no way to remove it and that also means that the device cannot be jailbroken.

    Hello ,
    I am curious and interested in getting flexspy extreme for the iPhone.
    I was wondering, after it is installed on the targets phone and the icons are hidden as they say you can do, is there an any differences/changes that the target will be able to notice about the phone after installing the software, compared to before the phone was jail broken?
    Will there be any noticeable changes in the settings or anywhere else? Because as of now the targets phone has never had a jailbreak and if it the gets jail broken is it in any way obvious through the settings or anything viewable on iTunes?
    Another question I had is, when the listening/recording of the surroundings is taking place is there any noticable change to the phone as in lighting or anything else?
    Would I be able to record the surrounds onto my account if I’m not able to listen live at that moment?
    The last question I have is, if I’m listening to the surroundings and the target picks up the phone to use it, what happens then?
    Thank you for any help you may provide, it is greatly appreciated.

    • Hello.

      Once the software has been installed on to the device and you use the software to hide the icons the phone will continue to function and look as normal. This means the device will look and perform exactly the same. There are no noticeable changes or any extra settings or anything like that.

      For FlexiSPY for iPhone, from what we have been told, you can record the surroundings and they will be uploaded to your online account but you cannot record calls themselves inside your online account. FlexiSPY only offers that for Android devices.

      If you are listening in to the device surroundings using your own phone and the TARGET device is used then you will be immediately disconnected, to protect you from being discovered and the phone won’t have any traces at all that you were ever listening in.

        My question is related to JB and how to set the Passcode settings as Off as its coming as hidden. I have the passcode and physical handset. Please advise asap

        • Hello Abhi.

          When you say hidden do you mean the option is there but you cannot select it to change it? If so then it may mean that the device is connected to a Microsoft Exchange email account and it is these policies that override the default device settings so you cannot turn off the passcode.

          The only way around that is to get the policy turned off which means that the device owners workplace would need to do that or you delete the Microsoft Exchange email account from the phone.

          If that is not the case is there any chance you can give us a picture of what you are seeing so we can understand more clearly what is happening?

    If there is a more specific place I can find details for how to jailbreak iOS 8.0.2 this would be appreciated. I have been told it is not possible to jailbreake iOS 8.0.2 so am reluctant to attempt ambiguous instructions

    • Hello Blessed.

      What you can do (although this may not work for long) is backup the phone to iTunes, download the restore file for iOS 8.1 for your phone model from here and restore the phone to upgrade it to iOS 8.1 so you can jailbreak it using our instructions:

      http://www.iphonehacks.com/download-iphone-ios-firmware

      Before you download anything check your device model number to ensure you are downloading the correct version:

      http://www.iphonehacks.com/iphone-model-firmware-file

      Then connect the device to iTunes, if a PC, hold down the Shift key and click the Restore button and browse to the restore file you downloaded and restore using that and it will also upgrade it to iOS 8.1.

      We have used the following process just recently to upgrade from 7.1.x to 8.1 (NOT the newly release iOS 8.1.1 which kills the jailbreak).

      As ever, backup the device please before proceeding and please understand it will DELETE ALL DATA on the device.

      Unfortunately iOS 8.1.1 stops you from being able to jailbreak your device and so this means FlexiSPY cannot work. The only thing you can do is contact the FlexiSPY support team for a refund.

      If your device is running iOS 8.1.1 then you cannot downgrade to iOS 8.1 to then be able to jailbreak the device because Apple will stop allowing that to happen very soon. Furthermore, with iOS 8.1.1 released nobody knows if or when another jailbreak will arrive.

  • Hello Mike.

    The issue with the videos that you mentioned may be due to your Mac as they play fine on our PC’s here. Are you saying that the Mac you want to use to jailbreak 7.1 using Pangu is running a version of OSX that is too old for the Pangu software to work?

    If that is the case then you can either install Windows on to your Mac using virtualisation software such as Parallels Desktop or VMWare Fusion or you can upgrade the version of OSX for free by downloading an newer version from the Mac App Store for free (such as Lion or Mavericks) and then run the Pangu jailbreak program again and hopefully it should detect the connected iPhone that you wish to jailbreak.

    Can we assume that, when you connect the iPhone you wish to jailbreak, it appears inside iTunes on your Mac and appears on the desktop?

      The iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch is not released yet.

      iOS 8 is not released yet to the public – it is released on September 17th.

      After September 17th the time taken for a jailbreak to appear is unknown. It can be anything from a week to a year, nobody knows and sadly all we can do is wait.

      Stay tuned to the FlexiSPY blog as we are publishing more information about this in the coming days but right now nothing is available and won’t be for a long time so you have to make sure that any iPhone or iPad you wish to install FlexiSPY on to or have already installed FlexiSPY on to is NOT upgraded to iOS 8 in any way because you will lose the jailbreak and FlexiSPY cannot be installed again without that.

      Using the iOS 7 jailbreak video above you can jailbreak that iPhone 4 running iOS 7.0.4. All you need is the iPhone 4 itself and a PC – please review the video for more information. As a word of caution however please make sure that the iPhone 4 is not upgraded to iOS 7.1 in any way. Please keep it at iOS 7.0.4.

      The reason we say this is because iOS 7.1 cannot be jailbroken. There will most likely not be a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 and the next version of iOS that will have a jailbreak (according to our sources) will be the just announced iOS 8 which is due for general release in the Autumn.

    Hello, the Iphone version to jailbreak is 6.1.3, which instructions should I follow?

    • Hello Kimberly.

      Unfortunately there is no way to jailbreak any iPhone running iOS 6.1.3. Furthermore, if you upgrade that phone then you upgrade it to iOS 7.1 and that cannot be jailbroken either. The only thing you can do is try to swap the TARGET device to be a used iPhone running either iOS 6.x – 6.1.2 only or iOS 7.x – 7.0.6 only.

      Any iPhone running an iOS version that is not in either of those two ranges (6.1.4 & 7.1) cannot be jailbroken at this time and there is no way to upgrade or downgrade the iOS to a version that can be jailbroken either as Apple do not allow this.

      If you see any website advertising a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 7.1 then they are scams – please be careful.
