How to install Danael M9 Lockscreen and fix the slider error

In Apple device on 05/05/2011 at 12:12 PM

Damn, it has been a long time since i create a new post. Today topic is: iPhone 4 lock screen modding. I would like to introduce you to one of the best lock screens for iPhone 4:”Danael M9 Lockscreen” This lock screen is simply what i need: simple elegant and give me space to show off my own wall paper. Here is the screen shots from official site:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What i need ?

  • Jailbreak iPhone4, don’t know what jailbreak is ? Well you missing something big, pal 🙂
  • Software to access the root folder. SSH(guide available in cydia) or if you don’t want hassle i rekon DiskAid (Google is your friend)
  • Winterboard which can be install through Cydia.
  • Simple Danael M9 Lockscreen package which can be download from his page here in Mactheme
  • OR if you dig the weather addon please download it from Mardok link which you can find in page 6 of the thread here

Done ! How to install it ?

Unzip Danael lock screen package. Now you will need to customize the lock screen to your liking:

  • To fix the wall paper error/change wall paper, simply copy your favorite wallpaper (1.jpeg for example) into “Danael M9 Lockscreen.theme” folder (same level with style.css, background.png…). Then open “LockBackground.html” with notepad (i recommend Notepad++ which is free but better then the default). Find these sentences:
<img src="/User/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg"
width="320" height="480"></img>

and change it to

<img src="Name of your wallpaper(1.jpg for example)"
width="320" height="480"></img>
  • For other who download the Mardok (weather version) please edit configureMe.js by notepad and change the code to your liking. For example

if you live in Melbourne change locale to                          var locale = “Melbourne, AU”

if you want the weather update every 3 hours change    var updateInterval = 180

if you want Celsius change                                                    var isCelsius  = true

  • For those update to 4.3.1 or onward the bad new is Apple change the name of all UI image so Damael slider may not appear correctly. Appreantly Apple tried their best to prevent theme modding 😦 You can fix that by simply change the name of the slider components respectively:

bottombarbkgndlock@2x.png    to     WellLock@2x.png

bottombarknobgray@2x.png      to      BarBottomLock@2x.png

Or vice-versa, i also believe that this simply rename can also fix all other slider errors in other theme as well so if it worked, please report back so other know 😉

SSH or DiskAid to you iphone and copy the whole folder: “Danael M9 Lockscreen.theme” to this location: Root\var\stash\Theme or ThemeXXX.

And that’s about it now you can enjoy this new lock screen. Show off to your friends ! Here are some example of this lock screen:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

FAQ:

  • I only see black screen—>you have not install your wallpaper please refer to the install guide
  • Weather information still loading—>There is a bug in Mardok script, just unlock your device and be sure your phone connect to the internet then relock it. It will happen every time you respring
  • My original slider still appear—>Change the name of png files please refer to install guide
  • Are there any addon to make this cooler ?—> Yes it is ! There are MBEx (change the style of music control in lock screen) and Danael complete theme which you can find in his thread here or Cydia
  • I included screenshots showed common errors when installing Danael lock screen below here. If familiar to you, refer to my install guide to fix it. Have fun !

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&#8221;
  • 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.

You are done ! Want to unlock your iPhone 3G and old 3GS module ? Follow this post

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 !

What you need ?

Guide (copy from Redmond Pie)

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

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

GreenPois0n is now available to jailbreak iPhone/iPod/iPad

In Apple device on 13/10/2010 at 1:57 PM

Just a couple of days after GeoHot released Limera1n, Chronic Dev Team quickly adapted Limera1n boot room exploit to their tool. Why ? To save the Shatter exploit for the next iOS 5.0 and new iPad/iPhone generation. So the good new is we “the newbie” will not need to wait a long time to pawn the next Apple iGen devices 🙂

Caution:

  • If you are using unlock (ie: ultrasnow) please do not update otherwise your iPhone will be upgrade to the newest baseband which is impossible to unlock !
  • Once again, GreenPois0n is Jailbreak tool NOT unlock tool
  • If you still want to update to 4.1 without upgrading baseband please follow this instruction to run TiniUmbrella to preserve your old baseband !

How can i do it ?

  • Go to GreenPois0n website and click on GreenPois0n editions you wish to download
  • When finished just run the application and follow the instruction. They are all clear so you should jailbreak iDevice easily

Guide copy from RedmondPie:

Step 1: Download GreenPois0n from the link given above.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone via USB to your computer and click on “Prepare to Jailbreak (DFU)” as seen in the screenshot below.

Step 3: Now follow the following onscreen instructions:

  • Press and hold the sleep button for 2 seconds

  • Continue holding sleep; press and hold home for 10 seconds.

  • Release sleep button; continue holding home for 15 seconds.

Step 4: Your device is now ready for jailbreak. Click on “Jailbreak” to inject the exploit.

Step 5: Your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch should now be successfully jailbroken on iOS 4.1 !

Step 6: Now start “Loader” found on the homescreen and install Cydia:

This is it! You are done !

How to Jailbreak iPhone/iPad/iPod with LimeRa1n

In Apple device on 10/10/2010 at 1:01 AM

Update: Limerain might not support iPhone 3G and 2G. BEWARE !

That’s it, folks ! GeoHot came back with awesome jailbreak tools for all iOS device current version. And the best part is he used different boot-room exploits than the Shatter exploit (chronicdev team). Now some of you may say GeoHot should save it for the next release iOS 5 or iPhone 5…but in my opinion the release of Limera1n could only strengthen the healthy competition between jailbreak/unlock teams and individual hackers. It is alway better to have two or more providers than one, eh ?

Warning:

  • If you rely on unlock (ultrasnow), stay away ! Cuz Limera1n is ONLY jailbreak tool and available only for Windows
  • Limera1n is JAilbreak tool only and beta version so you may experience some glitches. Here is the copy from Limera1n website:
  • known bugs
  • 3GS new bootrom is broken, fix pending. Need to restart to get the Cydia icon to show up after installing. Some people still don’t have windowsbeta iOS versions aren’t supported. Uninstall in limera1n app doesn’t work, you can just delete the blackra1n.app directory”
  • Allow the instructions in the box, sadly limera1n isn’t one click. That’s the price of unpatchability, as usual, donations appreciated but not required still in beta, pardon my ragged edges.
  • AppleTV is technically supported, but theres no apps yet
  • zero pictures of my face

How can i do it ?

  • Go to limera1n website and download the software
  • Extract and follow Limerain’s instruction to jailbreak your iphone

Guides from Redmond Pie :

Limera1n has been released for all iOS devices including: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G / 3G, iPad running iOS 4.1, and iOS 3.2.2 respectively. Limera1n is currently available for Windows only, however a Mac and Linux version will be available soon.

The following instructions will help you jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS using Limera1n.

NOTE: If you rely on an unlock, do not update to iOS 4.1 yet as doing so will upgrade your baseband, making it impossible for now to unlock. Either use TinyUmbrella to update to iOS 4.1 without update baseband (instructions here), or wait for PwnageTool which will help you cook custom firmware files for iOS 4.1 without the upgraded baseband.

Step 1: Download Limera1n from here.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone via USB to your computer and click on “make it ra1n” as seen in the screenshot below.

Step 3: Now follow the following steps in this order:

  • Now wait for the device to enter recovery mode:

  • Now hold “Home” + “Power” buttons:

  • Release the “Power” button:

  • now wait for the device to enter DFU mode:

Step 4: Once you are done with this, you will have the limera1n logo on your iPhone’s screen. Limera1n will now inject the bootrom exploit to pwn your device forever!

Step 5: Jailbreak is done!

 

Step 6: Now start Limera1n app from your iPhone, and install Cydia as shown in the screenshots below.

Step 7: Now simply restart your device and enjoy the jailbreak!

You can also alternatively follow the step by step guide for jailbreaking iOS 4.1 using Limera1n in the video embedded below.

Unlock for iOS 4.1 (Old Baseband)
There is currently no way to unlock your iPhone on the latest 05.14.02 baseband. If you have managed to preserve your baseband while upgrading to iOS 4.1 using TinyUmbrella, you can use the existing version of Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone on iOS 4.1. Step by step instructions for unlocking can be found here.

Download Limera1n for Windows
Download iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4 and 3GS

UPDATE 1: Follow the step by step instructions posted here to jailbreak iPod touch 4G / 3G on iOS 4.1 using Limera1n.

After the installation is done, iPhone will restart automatically and you should now have a fully jailbroken iPhone running on iOS 4.1.
