Jailbreak iPhone 3G/3GS with PwnageTool 4.1.3 for iOS 4.2.1/4.1 with 06.15.00 baseband

In Apple device on 29/11/2010 at 3:22 AM

Warning: make sure to read my earlier post for fully understanding the risks 🙂

Update: Some users reported GPS problem when upgrading their iPhone to iPad baseband 06.15.00. So be caution if you value your GPS function. Please wait for the next update from Dev-Team !

Step 4: Start PwnageTool 4.1.3 and point it to iOS 4.2.1 / 4.1 firmware file.

Step 5: You will now be prompted to update your baseband to 06.15.00 so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w 1.2.

Step 6: Now point PwnageTool 4.1.3 to iOS 3.2.2 for iPad. PwnageTool will now fetch the exploitable 06.15.00 baseband from 3.2.2 firmware and will replace it the baseband in iOS 4.2.1 / 4.1.

Step 7: Click the next arrow now to allow PwnageTool to create this custom ipsw file for you.

Step 8: Now follow the following steps to enter DFU mode:

  • Hold Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds
  • Now release the Power button but continue holding the Home button for 10 more seconds
  • You device should now be in DFU mode

Step 9: You will now have to restore your iPhone to this custom firmware 4.2.1 / 4.1 file. Start iTunes, click on your device icon from the sidebar in iTunes. Now press and hold left “alt” button (“Shift” button on Windows) on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update” or “Check for Update”) button in the iTunes and then release the “Shift” button.

This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your custom firmware 4.2.1 / 4.1 file. Select the required custom .ipsw file and click on “Open”.

Step 10: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps. Be patient at this stage and don’t do anything silly. Just wait while iTunes installs the new firmware 4.2.1 / 4.1 on your iPhone 3GS or 3G. Your iOS device screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, your iPhone will restart automatically and you should now have a fully jailbroken iPhone 3GS or 3G with 06.15.00 baseband.

Step 11: Please go to next post to unlock your iPhone using Ultrsn0w


Unlock for iPhone 3G/3Gs in iOS 4.2.1 (Mac version) have arrived !

In Apple device on 29/11/2010 at 2:48 AM

Thanks to Dev-Team, iPhone 3G and 3Gs can now safely upgrade to 4.2.1 along with unlock 🙂 Here are the whole article i copied from Dev-Team blog. You can find my summary and how to below and in separate new posts followed up.

Today we’re pleased to announce our free carrier unlock for iPhone3G/3GS owners with a baseband later than 05.13.04.  The unlock for that baseband exploited the AT+XAPP command, thanks to a crash initially discovered by @sherif_hashim (@Oranav also found this crash).  So what hole are we exploiting today, since Apple closed that AT+XAPP hole?  Well, we’re exploiting the exact same hole!

It turns out that the very first iPad firmware 3.2.2 has baseband version 06.15.00 still vulnerable to AT+XAPP. The iPad baseband is built for the exact same baseband chip as the iPhone3G/3GS — they’re fully compatible! Some of us have been running 06.15 for weeks now on our iPhones in preparation for this release.

SIMPLIFIED VERSION:

  1. Read and fully understand the warning below.
  2. If you have an old-bootrom 3GS and are already unlockable but want to get to 4.2.1, please wait til we release an “unofficial” bundle for you.  Read no further.
  3. Read update #1 for an updated 3GS bundle.
  4. Download this IPSW
  5. Run PwnageTool to create a custom 4.1 IPSW.  Tell it you want to use the iPad baseband you just downloaded.  Restore to this custom IPSW.
  6. Install ultrasn0w through Cydia
  7. Enjoy!
  8. If you don’t have a Mac, redsn0w will be released within a few hours to handle this.

FULL VERSION:

Since 06.15 is a higher version than 05.14 or 05.15 (where AT+XAPP is gone), anyone stuck at those versions can simply upgrade to 06.15 to unlock again!  Luckily for us, Apple *still* provides the iPad FW 3.2.2 with this vulnerable baseband right from their own servers. (Grab it now, before they take it down!)

We’ve been busy updating both PwnageTool and redsn0w to make the baseband update as seamless as possible.

  1. First up is “PwnageTool 4.1.3 Unlock Edition”.  It has a special dialog box which will ask you if you want to update to the iPad baseband.  You must already have the iPad 3.2.2 IPSW on your computer (see the above link)….so just point PwnageTool at it (or let it find it on its own if you’re in “simple” mode).
  2. Directly after PwnageTool 4.1.3 is available, the official ultrasn0w repo http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com will be updated with ultrasn0w 1.2, which covers iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00 and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and now 06.15.00.
  3. Finally, we’ll release an update to redsn0w today for those without Macs and can’t run PwnageTool.  The new redsn0w will give you the option to update your baseband to 06.15 too.

WARNING — YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!  PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF UPDATING TO 06.15.

  1. There is no way to come back down from 06.15, and there’s no hiding the baseband version from Apple.  You’ll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way.
  2. If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won’t be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn’t update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway).
  3. Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won’t ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail).  You’ll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you’re unlocker you should already be doing that).

Certainly don’t update to 06.15 if you don’t need to!  Only do this if you need the unlock and you’re stuck on 05.14 or 05.15, and you’re willing to assume the above risks.

This PwnageTool also contains a 4.2.1 bundle for iPhone3G owners…for all else, it’s still only 4.1.  If you have an iPhone3GS with an old bootrom, the new redsn0w will handle 4.2.1 for you (in fact it covers 4.2.1 for all devices, even though some of them are still tethered at 4.2.1 until @comex can work some untethering magic).  iPhone3GS users with old bootroms who want to go to 4.2.1 should not use this PwnageTool! Update to stock 4.2.1 first, then use the upcoming redsn0w to update your baseband.

Speak in English, please !

  • Instead of finding new exploit in iPhone baseband, Dev-Team will replace it with iPad baseband 06.15.00 which served 2 purposes: give your iPhone new baseband but same old exploit (hack-able). That reminds me of this sentence: “Old wine, new vase”
  • Once update to 06.15.00 baseband, you will not be able to restore to stock firmware until Apple release new firmware with higher baseband than 06.15.00 (Ex:06.35.05 or 07.00.05…), which also means that you will void your warranty 😦
  • If you want a simplify/smooth unlocking experience and own iPhone 3GS, wait a little more for updated PwnageTool, or the OSX version of redsn0w. Patience is the key 🙂
  • You will need to download both iPad firmware 3.2.2 and iPhone 4.2.1 to be able to start the unlocking process. Then jailbreak with PwnageTool 4.1.3 and unlock with Ultrasn0w 1.2

Restore Orientation Lock button in iPad iOS 4.2.1

In Apple device on 26/11/2010 at 2:21 AM

Missing the good’ol lock button in iPad ? Thanks to Nicolas Haunold, you can change the function of the mute volume back to lock orientation button. All you have to do is run Cydia, wait for its update and search for “NoMute” under BigBoss repository then install it (FREE)

Update: Please remember to run “Tether boot” option to be able to boot into your jailbreak iPad as this install might require reboot. Follow this post from step 8 to know HOW 🙂

Jailbreak iPad

Jailbreak iPad, iPod and iPhone 4.2.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.6b4

In Apple device on 25/11/2010 at 2:36 AM

Caution: If you rely on unlock, please stay away from this update. Honestly, i only think that this update is good for iPad but your call anyway 🙂 Up to now, new iDevices such as iPhone 4G, iPad, iPod Touch 4G…can only be applied “tethered” jailbreak. Here are explanation i copied from Dev_Team blog:

  1. If you’re on an iPhone3G, old-bootrom iPhone3GS, or non-MC ipt2g, life is easy. redsn0w installed an untethered jailbreak and so nothing below applies.
  2. “Tethered” does not mean you cannot boot at all without PC/Mac assistance.  If you have not installed any tweaks that hook into important programs like SpringBoard or CommCenter, your device will actually boot. However, jailbreak programs like Cydia won’t work (and Cydia may still have a white icon).  Also, certain built-in apps that had to be moved by Cydia will fail (Safari being the most noticeable example).
  3. If you’ve installed MobileSubstrate tweaks that hook into SpringBoard or other important programs, your boot will actually fail (you’ll get stuck at the Apple logo).  You need to use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered right now”

For short, anytime your iDevices reboot or turn off, you will need to connect it to a Mac or PC then run RedSn0w, select “Just boot tethered right now” and follow the instruction to have yours working again (about 1 minute). This is quite troublesome if you need to make emergency phone call and your shinny new iPhone stuck at Apple logo 😦

What you need ?

Guide:

  1. Back up your iDevices and connect it to iTunes 10.1
  2. Hold Shift+Click Restore (Windows) or Option+Click Restore (Mac) then select your respective 4.2.1 firmware
  3. Wait for the upgrade finish and your device start up with nice Apple wallpaper. You can restore back up if you want
  4. Run RedSn0w then select 4.2.1 firmware you had just downloaded.
  5. Next,wait,continue…
  6. Turn off your devices then follow the prompt to boot into DFU mode and wait
  7. Finish ! You device will restart with Cydia not working 😦 Do NOT panic !
  8. Turn off your device and run RedSn0w ONCE MORE TIME
  9. Follow the same steps except in the selection screen: Deselect “Install Cydia” and select “Just boot tethered right now” 
  10. Continue, wait…Your device will boot up with “Pineapple” logo. Done !
  11. Everytime, your device restart or turn off repeat step 8 to 10
