Semi-Restore tutorial: How to wipe your iDevice without doing a full restore (iOS 5.0-6.1.2)

Last month we brought you news that there was a new iOS restore tool in the works called Semi-Restore. Semi-Restore is a next-to last resort for iOS issues. If you've done everything you can think of to fix your sluggish firmware to no avail and you have a device which doesn't have SHSH blobs for a jailbreakable firmware or you simply have a device that cannot be downgraded, Semi-Restore will wipe your iOS installation clean without actually doing a full restore.

Semi-Restore is available now as a Windows and OSX GUI tool, there is a Linux version in development and …

No evasi0n jailbreak release tonight, confirmed release date tomorrow February 4th

evad3rs

We have been patiently waiting all week for the release of the new iOS6 Evasi0n jailbreak, but it looks like we are going to have to wait one more day. It all started with a vague tweet from MuscleNerd who asked what the evad3rs team was planning for Super Bowl sunday. Rumors continued when someone noticed that all of the devices on the Evasi0n website had "3" on the calendar app, leading people to believe that today, February 3rd, would be the release date.

Unfortunately, just moments ago, PlanetBeing tweeted that the jailbreak will definitely not be released today, but …

DreamJB Confirmed Fake [Unfortunately]

dreamthumb

We posted earlier today about a skeptical but possible untethered jailbreak for all iOS 6 iDevices, including the iPhone 5, iPad Mini + others. The DreamJB team have uploaded a youtube video (shown below) which has been confirmed fake by many users within the Jailbreak community including MuscleNerd. The video is one of the most, if not THE most, well done fakes we have ever seen, but even the best fake still has some discrepancies. Now, other than the fact that the DreamJB "developer" has already admitted that this was nothing more than a "social experiment," here are some …

Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 coming soon to fix 06.15.00 downgrade issues for some 3Gs users

thumb

Ever since we posted the 06.15.00 iPad baseband downgrade tutorial last week, we have received numerous reports from our readers that the baseband was just not downgrading. The process would go through normally and look like it was working, but in the end the baseband would remain on 06.15.00. Yesterday, @MuscleNerd announced that he has figured out why some 3Gs devices have been "refusing" the baseband downgrade. He says that he will be receiving a device to test it on this Thursday in order to address the issue which is apparently due to variations in the NOR chip.

How to fix crashing and “No Service” after downgrading 06.15.00 baseband

noservice

Several of our users have been reporting issues with the 06.15.00 downgrade method we posted early this morning. Some people have been having issues getting the downgrade to go through(still trying to figure out the cause of this), but others have been successful with the downgrade but have been experiencing crashing or "No Service" errors. For those people with crashes or "No Service" try going into Cydia>Manage>Packages and select MobileSubstrate, then go to modify then click "reinstall" on the next page click "Continue Queuing" and then go back to the packages page and find Ultrasn0w and do the same for …

Downgrade 06.15.00 Baseband to 05.13.04 with Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 (Video Tutorial)

bb1

This is a video tutorial that will walk you through downgrading your iPhone 3G/3Gs from the iPad baseband 06.15.00 to 05.13.04 which is another Ultrasn0w compatible baseband that will allow you to unlock and use your GPS capabilities. It is very important that if you have a 3Gs and it was manufactured on or after the 35th week of 2011 you SHOULD NOT install the iPad baseband. Doing so will permanently brick your cell radio. You can tell when your device was manufactured by looking at the 3rd, 4th and 5th digits of your phone's serial. The 3rd digit is …
