All software used is untethered unless otherwise stated. An untethered jailbreak means the user is able to reboot their Apple iOS device without the need to connect to a computer and re-run the jailbreak tool to power up the device in question.

The devices are classified into two categories below, the 'discontinued' devices being those for which Apple no longer releases software updates, while the 'current' devices are those for which Apple is still releasing updates. The iPod touches are split into MB model numbers (old bootrom) and MC model numbers (new bootrom). The iPhone 3GS also uses MB and MC model numbers, but while an MB indicates an old bootrom, some MC models have the old bootrom and the others have the new.[1]

Discontinued devicesEdit

Devices that Apple has ceased to update now all have permanently untethered jailbreaks. Apple could, theoretically, update these devices in the future; however, they have stopped updating the devices, so this is unlikely.
