Saffron (also known as JailbreakMe 3.0) is a userland untethered jailbreak from comex that utilizes, yet again. It was the first jailbreak made available to the public for the iPad 2 running iOS 4.3.3. In June 2011, comex began to put up teasers on JailbreakMe. On 2 July 2011, someone found a prerelease version of "Saffron," the third incarnation of JailbreakMe, through Google dorking on comex's website. Subsequently, this version leaked publicly. On 6 July 2011, "Saffron" made its official debut on JailbreakMe.

This jailbreak was patched on 15 July 2011 with the releases of iOS 4.2.9 (iPhone 4 CDMA model) and 4.3.4 (all other devices).

Domain owner problem

On 7 October 2011, MuscleNerd announced that the domain was sold and that the new owner was unknown, creating a danger of the site hosting malware.[1][2] The new owner sold it the next day to saurik, who hosted the site anyway, resolving the concern.[3]

Certificate problem

Starting early December 2015, the domain started to display a blank homepage. In addition, JailbreakMe began to redirect traffic to HTTPS; however, the TLS certificate it was using was invalid. Turns out comex moved the files to his personal domain.
