Do I need to jailbreak the device first to install FlexiSPY?
Yes. This is required. Jailbreaking is the process of allowing the TARGET iPhone or iPad to be modified in more ways than Apple originally intended. On a jailbroken device you can modify the software to perform additional functions or get additional features that would otherwise not be available on a device that has not been jailbroken.
This includes making the phone operating system look or act differently to being able to install software such as FlexiSPY. Jailbreaking a device will not void the warranty that comes with the device and you can simply restore the device in iTunes (losing the jailbreak) to regain the warranty status and Apple would never know it had been jailbroken.
Can I install FlexiSPY and jailbreak later?
Unfortunately not. To install the software, you need to jailbreak first and then install FlexiSPY.
What important information do I need to know about jailbreaking before I do it?
FlexiSPY works on the following devices which meet the iOS requirements below. Before you begin jailbreaking please understand the following points.
- These guides are provided by FlexiSPY and are accurate at the time of writing.
- Jailbreaking is legal in some countries but not others – please check this before you attempt jailbreaking.
- Always remember to follow the jailbreaking videos exactly.
- Spy Phone Review is not responsible for any damages that may incur from incorrect jailbreaking of an iPhone or iPad and you perform jailbreaking at your own risk.
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 11.1.2 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.
