Installing EtasonJB

For support in English, ask for help on the r/Jailbreak Discord Server.

EtasonJB is capable of jailbreaking 32bit iOS devices on firmware version 8.4.1.

Unlike most modern jailbreaks, EtasonJB is persistent after a reboot (this is also referred to as an "untethered" jailbreak). This means that after you reboot the device, the device will stay jailbroken and you won't have to run the exploit again.

We will use the Sideloadly tool to install the EtasonJB jailbreak application to your iOS device for use in the next step.

Installing the application

  1. Open Sideloadly
  2. Plug your iOS device into your computer
    • Make sure your computer is trusted and allowed to view the contents of your device
  3. Drag and drop the EtasonJB .ipa file into Sideloadly
  4. Enter in your Apple ID
  5. Enter in your password
    • Sideloadly must make a request to its servers in order to work with free developer accounts. If you are not OK with this, you may use an alternate Apple ID.

The app will now install to your iOS device.

Trusting the application

  1. Go to Settings -> General -> Device Management -> <Your Apple ID>
    • Depending on your usage, Device Management may be labeled Profiles and Device Management
  2. Tap Trust "<Your Apple ID>"

The EtasonJB application can now be opened from home screen.

Running EtasonJB

  1. Open the EtasonJB application from your home screen
  2. Tap Etason JB!


If your device crashes or restarts unexpectedly and the jailbreak isn't installed, simply try running the exploit again until it does work.

You should now be jailbroken with Cydia installed on your home screen. You can use Cydia to install tweaks, themes and more.
