Dev Team To Release Ultrasn0w For iOS 5 Tomorrow [Unlock iPhone]

October 13th, 2011 10:21 admin View Comments

Ultrasn0w

MuscleNerd, member of the iPhone Dev team has just announced that they will release Ultrasn0w for iOS 5 after an update for MobileSubstrate is released tomorrow.

Dev team has already released Redsn0w for iOS 5 for Mac, which includes the PwnageTool functionality and iH8sn0w had released Snowbreeze for Windows that allows users to preserve iPhone’s baseband while upgrading to iOS 5.

MuscleNerd tweeted few minutes back:

will coordinate ultrasn0w iOS5 compatibility update to come out *after* a planned MobileSubstrate update tomorrow

Please note that we’re assuming that Dev team will release it as soon as MobileSubstrate is released, but it is possible that it is released a little later.

Ultrasn0w currently supports the following basebands  01.59.00 (iPhone 4), baseband 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00 (iPhone 3GS). We don’t expect it to support latest basebands such as 04.11.08 (iPhone 4) or baseband 05.16.05 (iPhone 3GS) that comes bundled with iOS 5 that was released yesterday. Note: You can find your iPhone’s baseband by going to Settings –> About –> Modem Firmware

So Ultrasn0w for iOS 5 will be useful only for users who have iPhones with the older basebands mentioned above, unless Dev team has a surprise for us.

As always, we’ll keep you posted, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

Dev Team: Not Possible To Port Siri On Other iOS Devices Without Piracy; To Add PwnageTool Functionality To Redsn0w For iOS 5

October 12th, 2011 10:47 admin View Comments

Redsn0w

With just few minutes to go for iOS 5 launch, MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team has revealed that they plan to bundle the ability to create custom iOS firmware file to preserve the iPhone baseband in Redsn0w – their popular tool instead of launching the PwnageTool for iOS 5.

If you were hoping that the jailbreak community will figure out a way to enable Siri – Apple’s revolutionary new intelligent personal assistant, which is exclusively available only on the iPhone 4S, to other iOS devices then we have some bad news. MuscleNerd has revealed that based on initial analysis it doesn’t seem possible to port Siri to the iOS devices:

(only way to extract Siri files from iPhone4S filesystem without pirating is to have the main FS keys, requiring low-level exploit)

Anyone hoping for a “port” of Siri from iPhone4S: pending a very low-level A5 exploit, it likely can’t be done without piracy :(

Here’s MuscleNerd’s tweet about bundling the PwnageTool functionality in Redsn0w:

We’re adding most popular PwnageTool usage into redsn0w (for Windows+Mac). First up: removing BB update

MuscleNerd has also tweeted the following screenshot of the updated Reds0w with the “Custom IPSW” feature.

We’ll keep you posted if there are any further updates.

JailbreakMe.com Transferred To Saurik – Cydia Founder; Safe For Jailbreaking Again

JailbreakMe 3.0

When we writing the post about JailbreakMe.com being sold to an unknown entity, we wondered why Jay Freeman a.k.a saurik – founder of Cydia hadn’t bought the domain.

As it turns out, we were quite late in reporting the news as saurik is indeed the new owner of the JailbreakMe.com domain, as the person who had initially bought it from ConceitedApps was kind enough to transfer it to Saurik.

Minutes before we published the post warning you to avoid using JailbreakMe.com, Freeman announced the news on Twitter:

Yesterday, we learned that jailbreakme.com was sold in July; today, I talked with the new owner: he is actually very likable and awesome. ;P

…and tonight, jailbreakme.com was transferred to me (convenient, as I host the site ;P); so, going forward, we no longer need to worry! :D

Saurik or the iPhone Dev team were the ideal folks to own or control the domain, so this is good news as there were concerns that the domain could be used to host iPhone malware.

So JailbreakMe 3.0 can be safely be used again to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for iOS 4.3.3 or lower. You can checkout this post for more details on how to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 4.3.3 or lower.

Thanks Mgrove03 and HusAli for the tip!

JailbreakMe 3.0

MuscleNerd, member of the iPhone Dev Team has tweeted that the domain – JailbreakMe.com, which was used to host JailbreakMe – an extremely popular jailbreak tool has been “underhandedly” sold.

This news comes after Comex – developer of the popular jailbreak tool joined Apple as an intern recently.

MuscleNerd has warned users to avoid using JailbreakMe.com as the identity of the new owner is not known and could be potentially used to host iPhone malwares:

It’s sad @ConceitedApps sold out http://jailbreakme.com for $$. Luckily we have http://jailbreaks.me and won’t ever sell out, said MuscleNerd.

the new owner of jailbreakme.com is absolutely unknown, untrusted, and unsafe..in perfect place for iPhone malware everything jailbreakme.com used to host will soon be on jailbreaks.me. Don’t trust jailbreakme.com anymore (seriously) it’s the worst kind of sellout by @ConceitedApps. They didn’t even give us a chance to migrate actual jailbreakers

The good news is that JailbreakMe will now get a new home at Jailbreaks.me that is owned by iPhone Dev Team.

Before quiting the jailbreak scene as a developer to join Apple, Comex had released JailbreakMe 3.0, which was one of the easiest solutions to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for iOS 4.3.3 or lower.

Meanwhile, person behind ConceitedApps, who owned the JailbreakMe.com domain has responded:

“he is lucky i even let them use it for years after they “kicked” me out. i owe them nothing”

Currently, the JailbreakMe.com website seems to continue to host JailbreakMe, but as Dev Team has advised, we would recommend users to avoid it for the time being. We’ll let you know as soon as the Dev team has Jailbreaks.me up and running, hosting JailbreakMe, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

Redsn0w To Get a Major Update; Will Allow Users To Jailbreak iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch Without iOS Firmware File

September 17th, 2011 09:45 admin View Comments

Redsn0w

MuscleNerd, member of the iPhone Dev team has revealed that he plans to release a major update for Redsn0w – their popular jailbreaking tool.

Redsn0w can currently jailbreak the beta versions of iOS 5 available to developers and also the latest iOS firmware update iOS 4.3.5 and iOS 4.2.10 that is available to users.

MuscleNerd announced the news on Twitter with the following tweets:

Will be pushing out a major redsn0w feature upgrade before my trip to Korea: http://is.gd/PMAdT1 (and look, no IPSW selection button!)

If you’ve jailbroken your iOS device with Redsn0w, you probably know that it needs the relevant iOS firmware file. MuscleNerd has explained that with the new version, you’ll no longer need the full version of the firmware file. The latest version of Redsn0w will automatically download the files required for the jailbreak directly from Apple’s servers.

it automatically fetches the important pieces directly from Apple (and caches them so that it never needs to re-fetch them again)

It will then figure out, which version of iOS firmware is installed on your device and accordingly apply a tethered or untethered jailbreak depending on what kind of jailbreak the device supports.

right, it’ll do the appropriate thing (which isn’t always untethered) for the current (auto-detected) firmware on the device

That’s pretty cool. MuscleNerd has also clarified that though the latest version of Redsn0w is compatible with iOS 5 betas, the feature mentioned above won’t work with iOS 5 betas as they’re not available to the public. Users will have to provide the relevant iOS firmware file.

yep, partialzip. Also to clarify: it won’t auto-fetch the betas (since they’re not public). You need to provide them (once).

He has also published the following screenshots of the latest version of Redsn0w:

MuscleNerd plans to release the major update for Redsn0w on Monday. We’ll let you know as soon as it is available, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

Chronic Dev Team Actively Working On Untethered Jailbreak For iOS 5

September 15th, 2011 09:17 admin View Comments

iOS 5

As you may know, while jailbreak tools like Redsn0w released by the iPhone Dev team and Sn0wbreeze by iH8sn0w can jailbreak the beta versions of iOS 5, they only support a tethered jailbreak. This means means that you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot, which is not very convenient.

The good news is that Chronic Dev team are actively working to on an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. Chronic Dev team had released greenpois0n to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1. 

In the last few days, pod2g – member of the Chronic Dev team has tweeted:

yeah, the whole chronic-dev team is still alive and actively working on iOS 5 !

Nearly everything in my life except my job changed… Also, I worked on some exploit that took me lot of time.

That would be a great mistake to give info about iOS 5 jailbreak.

there won’t be untethered jailbreaks for iOS 5 betas. It would give too much intel to Apple to fix.

We may be reading too much between the lines but lets hope that the jailbreaking community has figured out to support an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. We’re also quite sure that iPhone Dev team is also working on it.

It will be also interesting to see if Apple fixes the exploit that allows the tethered jailbreak in the next beta version of iOS 5, which may be the final beta version before Apple releases iOS 5 golden master and then releases it to the public.

According to a recent report, Apple will seed iOS 5 beta 8 to developers tomorrow, September 16th and will release iOS 5 golden master version on or around September 23rd. The report also claimed that Apple’s iPhone carrier partners are expected to give approval for iOS 5 by October 5th, which means that Apple is likely to launch iPhone 5 in the first-half of October.

One thing we’re quite sure about, the cat and mouse game between Apple and the jailbreaking community will continue.

How To Jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS Using Redsn0w For iOS 4.3.5 [Windows / Mac]

July 31st, 2011 07:45 admin View Comments

Jailbreak iPod Touch On iOS 4.2.1 Redsn0w

Apple released iOS 4.3.5 earlier in the week to fix the security vulnerability with certification validation. The good news is that Redsn0w 0.9.8b4 released by the iPhone Dev team, which allows iPhone 4 and iPhone  3GS users to jailbreak iOS 4.3.4, also works for iOS 4.3.5.

In this guide, we will take you through the step by step procedure to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.3.5 using Redsn0w.

Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

  • This guide is meant for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users only. This guide is not meant for iPod Touch and iPad users. iPad 1 users can checkout this step by step guide, while iPod Touch users can checkout this step-by-step guide.
  • Redsn0w 0.9.8b4 only supports a tethered jailbreak, which means that you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot.
  • If you are on iOS 4.3.3 then you can use JailbreakMe 3.0, which is one of the easiest tools to jailbreak iPad, which supports a untethered jailbreak. You can checkout this postfor instructions.
  • If you want to unlock your iPhone then please don’t use this guide as Redsn0w doesn’t preserve baseband. You should wait for PwnageTool for Mac or use Snowbreeze for Windows.
  • Please note that jailbreaking your iPhone may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk.
  • Please do not forget to backup your iPhone before you proceed. You can refer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iPhone.
  • If you’ve jailbroken your iPhone then you can use jailbreak apps such as AptBackup, PkgBackup or xBackup from Cydia to take a backup of all the jailbreak apps and tweaks so you can reinstall them easily after successfully jailbreaking your iPhone rather then installing them individually.
  • After the jailbreaking process is complete, do not forget to checkout our article on tips to keep your iPhone secure.
  • Please ensure you are running latest version of iTunes i.e. iTunes 10.2 or later.

You can follow these step-by-step instructions to jailbreak your iPhone and if you don’t care about unlocking your iPhone:

Step 1: Download Redsn0w 0.9.8b4 (Mac and Windows) and save the application in a folder named “Redsn0w” on your desktop.

Step 6: Navigate to the Redsn0w folder on the desktop and select the downloaded iOS 4.3.5 firmware file (iPhone 4 users: iPhone3,1_4.3.5_8L1_Restore.ipsw, iPhone 3GS users: iPhone2,1_4.3.5_8L1_Restore.ipsw). Click on the ‘Choose‘ button to let iTunes update your iPhone with the required firmware. You will be asked to setup your iPhone either from a previous backup or setup as a new iPhone, select the backup you want for your device (ideally should be the most recent one). Wait for iTunes to finish.

Step 7: Navigate back to the Redsn0w folder and launch the Redsn0w application. Windows 7 users should run the exe in Windows XP compatibility mode (right-click on the Redsn0w exe and select Properties, then select the Compatibility tab and select Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP). Windows XP and Windows 7 users should run Redsn0w as ‘Administrator’ (right-click on the Redsn0w exe and select ‘Run as an Administrator’).

(a) Hold the Power button on iPhone down for 3 seconds:

(b) Now simultaneously hold the iPhone and keep the two buttons pressed for 10 seconds:

(c) Now release the Power button while keeping the Home button pressed until Redsn0w identifies the device:

Step 14: Your iPhone should reboot now. Please remember to release the Home button.

Step 15: Redsn0w will now begin uploading the new RAM disk and kernel.

Step 16: You will now be notified once the jailbreaking process is complete. Click on the ‘Finish‘ button to exit the application.

Step 17: Your iPhone will reboot once again (which could take approximately 5 minutes). After it has rebooted, your iPhone should be successfully jailbroken. You should find Cydia jailbreak app on your iPhone’s home screen. If you’ve problems with Cydia, try to reboot your iPhone to resolve the issue.

Note: Once Redsn0w has finished jailbreaking your iPad, you will need to boot it tethered. All you need to do is rerun Redsn0w and this time select Just boot tethered right now from the list of options instead of installing Cydia.
