iOS 4 Custom Firmware (w/iBooks Fix)

June 23, 2010

Yesterday I provided you with Custom Firmware Restore files for all the iDevices that support the new update and can be jailbroken. This morning the Dev-Team released an update as it had the same issue as redsn0w to cause a problem with iBooks. Obviously if you don’t intend on using iBooks you don’t need to re-download it but I will be re-uploading the firmwares (without custom boot logos) with the fix for iBooks.

Please read this Dev-Team article before using any of the custom restore files.

iPhone iOS 4 Custom Firmware

June 22, 2010

Today PwnageTool 4 was released for the Mac and seeing as now I have a MacBook I thought I’d create some custom firmware for all you Windows users who don’t have an official tool as of yet.

Below are the links to the files, I will update them as I upload them and feel free to share this post with others.

Please read this Dev-Team article before using any of the custom restore files.

Details: Only non-hacktivated firmwares without Multitasking Enabled come with custom boot logos, root size is shown in brackets next to the device (I just used the default setting.)  Also baseband update is not enabled.

Dev-Team Confirm No Need For New Jailbreak Tools For 3.0.1

August 1, 2009

The iPhone Dev-Team have confirmed that there is no need for them to release new tools for Jailbrakejailbreaking the latest firmware 3.0.1.

They released this information:

The 3.0.1 release is a “branch” from 3.0 that occurs (code-wise) before all the 3.1 betas. The programs redsn0w needs to change for the jailbreak are identical when you compare the 3.0 and 3.0.1 versions. It seems pretty much the only changes Apple made were for the SMS bug, which affects programs that redsn0w doesn’t touch. That’s why you can re-use redsn0w 0.8 on 3.0.1 even though it was written for 3.0.

And since 3.0.1 doesn’t touch the baseband either, ultrasn0w 0.9 works for those needing the soft unlock. Just install it from the repo666.ultrasn0w.com repository using Cydia as usual.

We’ll at some point fix redsn0w to recognize both 3.0 and 3.0.1 IPSW’s, but really that’s the only change that would be made to it. Everything else would be identical, so there’s no need to wait for the “proper” version that recognizes the 3.0.1 IPSW as valid.

So to jailbreak the new firmware just use the old tools and you should have no problems.


Apple Releases iPhone OS 3.0.1

July 31, 2009

Apple earlier today released the latest iPhone OS, version 3.0.1. This update fixes the major SMS security issue that theyiphone_os_3 have finally fixed.

There hasn’t been many changes in the latest firmware release that have been found other than the SMS fix, feel free to email them in if you find any.

If you want to jailbreak your device it has been reported that in most cases it works fine but maybe wait a while until everything gets checked out.

  • Works on both 3G and 3GS
  • Works on hacktivated devices

Geohot Releases His Own Soft Unlock For iPhone 3GS

July 15, 2009

Geohot has released his own unlocking software, like ultrasn0w, for the iPhone 3GS. Playing off the Dev-Team’s namingiPhone 3GS Logo scheme he called it Purplesn0w. The user is required to have a jailbroken device so that the unlock can be downloaded through Cydia, like the Dev-Teams unlock.

Geohot also claims that his unlock is superior to the Dev-Teams unlock:

Wifi fails? Battery fails? Unlock fails? You need purplesn0w, the geohot 3GS unlock solution. Now I know you here a lot about different colors of sn0w, but I’m here to tell you why purplesn0w is the best. First off, what is purplesn0w? It’s a soft unlock for your 3GS that I’d actually use day to day. It’s not a daemon that takes any resources, and it doesn’t add a task to your baseband. It’s very close to a true unlock. All it does is patch three files, CommCenter, lockdownd, and your wildcard activation plist(which you need, activate w at&t sim first, no hacktivation support yet). That’s it, no other files are installed. Props to Oranav for the at+xlog exploit!
A full explanation is coming soon, but I think you clever reversers out there will see what it does, and see why it’s so pristine 🙂 The payload is radically different from other varieties of sn0w. beta as usual, back up first.

Be sure to have legit activated 3GS
Disable 3G if you don’t have it(like T-Mobile).
Add apt.geohot.com to Cydia
Install com.geohot.purplesn0w
Watch for success output in Cydia
Reboot, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone

ultrasn0w 0.8 Released

July 7, 2009

ultrasn0w 0.8 has been released today and is now fully working on the 3Gs.Jailbrake

The main 3GS ultrasn0w glitch on hacktivated devices is: need to do Settings->General->Reset->Reset Network settings once.

They have said that stability should be drastically improved for unltrasn0w on the 3GS, for some people however it may take up to 75 seconds after reboot.

To get ultrasn0w 0.8 add http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com/ to your sources.
