The Dev-Team has updated their website with info about the newest versions of ultrasn0w (unlock) and redsn0w (jailbreak). Below is a snippet of the info…you can get the full article HERE. [Read more...]
Last night, the Dev-Team released some info about the how to prepare the iPhone 3GS for jailbreaking. However, there wasn’t a guide yet. This morning there is a guide. Below is the info via the Dev-Team. You will want to check out their website for the how-to guide.
"Remember we warned you to stay away from any updates to 3.1 if you want to be able to jailbreak or unlock your 3GS.
Well this is an additional message to all you 3GS owners that would like to jailbreak your device sometime soon, but this advice comes with a warning! A warning that if you accidentally upgrade to 3.1, you will not be able to use Ultransn0w, so please re-read and double check this warning at the bottom of this post before proceeding.
You may have read or heard about techniques to capture files during the iTunes restore process. These will be required to jailbreak your phone in the near future, most of the methods involve icky USB snoops. Well, there is an even better and more reliable method to get your hands on those lovely files.
During the restore process iTunes nicely keeps these oh-so-top-secret-files in a lovely accessible place for us to copy out and backup, that place? /tmp on Mac OS X or %TEMP% on Windows. Thanks Apple — handy!
The downside to this approach is that you actually need to go through the restore process to get these signed files, which has risks if you are anywhere near 3.1 or 3.1 beta :-)
If you are ready to proceed and you know the risks we’ll get down to the nitty-gritty -
So during a usual recovery with iTunes, your signed iBEC is written to /tmp and during a DFU mode restore the signed iBSS is written there also. To be sure, restore in both modes one after another to be able to grab them both. You’ll need to keep an eye on the temp directory and copy it before it is deleted again by iTunes. I’m sure some nice folks will create a tutorial about this, we’ll link to the first person who makes a good one.
Should you choose to accept this mission, act fast, this needs to be done quickly! But again, always, always double check here to see if 3.1 has been released, if is has, then don’t do this.
WARNING!! - DANGER, WILL ROBINSON! - NB! - REMEMBER!
IF YOU CARE ABOUT ULTRASN0W, BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS METHOD! Do not attempt this if you have downloaded the 3.1 beta. You do NOT WANT TO accidentally restore your device to 3.1 beta — you’ll lose ultrasn0w if you do! BE WARNED :-)"
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to unlock an iPhone 3G using ultrasn0w. In order to use ultrasn0w, you must have baseband 04.26.08…which means you need to be on the 3.0 firmware. Your iPhone also must be jailbroke in order to use ultrasn0w.
Note: T-Mobile USA users should disable 3G before using ultrasn0w [Read more...]
Over night, the Dev-Team released ultrasn0w. ultrasn0w can be used to unlock an iPhone 3G on firmware 3.0. Below is what the Dev-Team has to say: [Read more...]
I know many of you are anxiously awaiting the released of ultrasn0w. I have been waiting all day to see if I would have more to report about it but, at least they are making progress. Earlier this morning, MuscleNerd did say that ultrasn0w is compatible with PIN-locked sims. Below are a few tweets, from today, with info about how ultrasn0w is coming along… [Read more...]
It seems the Dev-Team has updated their website to include a Windows jailbreak and 2nd gen iPhone Touch jailbrealk. Both of these use a jailbreak called redsn0w (simular to QuickPwn). Go HERE for the downloads. However, they have also updated some of their info…their 8 points have changed slightly so make sure you read them again. [Read more...]
If you follow MuscleNerd on Twitter (he is a member of the Dev-Team) you may already know this information but, this morning he twittered that the iPhone 3GS is being shipped with baseband 04.26.08. That is the baseband that ultrasn0w can be used on. Meaning, if the iPhone 3GS can be jailbroke, it can be unlocked using ultrasn0w. [Read more...]
It seems the DevTeam is gearing up for tomorrow’s release of firmware 3.0 and Friday’s release of the iPhone 3GS. According to their website, they will be doing a live demo of the 3.0 unlock, yellowsn0w, later tonight just before the release of the 3.0 firmware. In the demo you will see the new yellowsn0w and how the unlock works on all 3G iPhones. For a link to the feed you will need to check @MuscleNerd on Twitter.
Below is what the DevTeam has to say about the firmware 3.0 jailbreak: [Read more...]
The Dev Team updated their blog recently to give us some information about unlocking and jailbreaking the 3.0 firmware. Below is what they have to say.
“With all of the great stuff lined up for us with the 3.0 OS that Apple described today, many 3G owners may find themselves with itchy update fingers. If you find yourself with access to the 3G IPSW for 3.0 via the iPhone Dev Center program, and you are using yellowsn0w, do not update or restore to that official IPSW. You will lose yellowsn0w and find yourself unable to revert the baseband to get it back.
And for those wondering, yes the 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices. It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint and wait for PwnageTool to create a custom IPSW that avoids the baseband update.”
The Dev Team has left yet another cryptic message on their website today. It leads one to believe that we might soon be seeing a jailbreak for the 2nd generation iPod Touch. I know this has been long awaited so, we will have to wait and see what happens. As of now, the only clue we get is an abstract image on redsn0w.com. Below is the message from the Dev Team…to see the image head over to redsn0w.com. We will keep you updated on any changes. [Read more...]
