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.

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


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

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.

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 😦
