How to jailbreak and hacktivate iOS 4.2.1 using Redsn0w 0.9.6b6&SAM

In Apple device on 07/12/2010 at 10:23 AM

As promised from the Dev-Team, Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 for both Mac and Windows had been released quickly for our “zombreaker” 🙂 According to Dev-Team blog, they successfully handled “7700 comments over just the first 12 hours (10 per minute for half a day)” Damn ! Wish my blog was like that 🙂 Another good news is from developer @sbingner, “His tool, “Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM)” tricks your iPhone and iTunes into creating legitimate activation tickets even though you’re unlocked with ultrasn0w.  This means you get the full benefit of push applications, and your battery life increases substantially” Self-explanation, eh ? In short SAM will help your iOS look like this:

And now some WARNING signs before moving on:

  • Unlocker should restrain from upgrading to 4.2.1
  • Again, new iDevices will be jailbreak as semi-tethered (required redsn0w every time your devices reboot)

I recommend you should visit Dev-Team blog, SAM website to fully understand the procedure !

What i need ?

  • Your (fully charged) iDevices with computer and iTunes 10.1
  • RedSn0w 0.9.6b6 for Windows or Mac. Or you can visit Dev-Team blog to find the links 😉
  • Your iOS 4.2.1 respective firmware from Felixbruns or you can update/restore straight from iTunes 10.1

Guide: (Source from Redmond Pie and SAM)

  • Jailbreak using RedSn0w 0.9.6b6 basically the same as 0.6.6b4. Please visit my old post:”Jailbreak iPad, iPod and iPhone 4.2.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.6b4″ to successfully jailbreak your iDevices.
  • I need to remind you that every time your iDevice reboot or stuck at Apple logo (4.2.1 jailbreak), please repeat step 8 to 10 from my guide to be able to run your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.
  • Once your iPhone boot up, run Cydia and add new repohttp://repo.bingner.com”
  • Wait for the reloading and install “SAM” and “SAMPrefs”
  • Run RedSn0w again, select “Deactivate”, next…
  • Navigate to Settings > SAM and click “De-Activate iPhone”
  • Start iTunes, connect your iPhone, wait for  the activation.

Note: If iTunes says invalid SIM, you will need to manually select the appropriate carrier under one of the methods besides “Automatic” and click on a SIMID.

Other ways to unlock/jailbreak iPhone 3G firmware 3.1.3 baseband 05.12.01 Bootloader 5.8

In Apple device on 03/05/2010 at 2:51 AM

Update:

  • Bad news folks, some of the guys pointed out this iPhone has bootloader 5.8. That is why this method worked 😦
  • So to make sure you can UNLOCK the device, you need to download “f0recast” software from ih8sn0w.com.
  • Run this software, it will tell if you are able to downgrade your baseband and unlock !
  • If yes, run Cydia and search for “Fuzzyband Downgrader”  install and run. And Then let it Sn0w !

Intro:

Yes you read it right, folks ! I am able to install blackrain into my friend iPhone 3G firmware 3.1.3 baseband 05.12.01 sucessfully. And after having blackra1n appear in my friend home screen, the rest is just deadly simple: install Cydia and Unlock phone are 2 fingers away 🙂 The phone specs before the unlock is: Firmware 3.1.3 (Update through iTunes) baseband: 05.12.01 and after the unlock: Firmware 3.1.2 (7D11) baseband: 05.12.01

How can i do it ?

I guess it was my lucky day 🙂 You will need:

  1. iPhone 3G firmware 3.1.2
  2. Blackra1n from Geohotz website
  3. Patience and time cuz you will need to restore the device 3 or 4 times

Ok enough typing here they are:

  1. Connect your phone to iTunes and do normally downgrade to firmware 3.1.2 (Shift click restore)
  2. Ok and when you nearly finish, iTunes will display some stupid errors: 16xx or 2…. It is normal !
  3. Now your iPhone should stuck in Recovery mode like this picture:
  4. iPhone recover mode
  5. That is a good sign. Now next is very long process: What i basically do is run Blackra1n again and again until you can see GeoHotz picture appear in your screen. And then your iphone will have his wonderful application ! Remember that if the iPhone appears black screen for 10mins after you press Make It Ra1n, just reboot it by holding the 2 buttons and run blackra1n again !
  6. Based on my friend phone, it normally took me about 2 times to get GeoHotz screen.( I did the downgrade process 5,6 times to make sure and they were all sucess 🙂 It seems to me that Apple fix is not good enough to 100% block GeoHotz exploit

I did it. How about yours?

  1. I need someone to confirm that this method work on every iPhone accidentally upgrade to 3.1.3. So please if you are successful please post your result
  2. Also i want to confirm that the solder joint i did to my friend’s phone has nothing to do with this downgrade. (My skill at solder is terrible so i am not willingly unsolder and solder the joint myself 😦
