jailbreak

A few minutes ago, we informed you that iOS 6.1.1 has been released for the iPhone4S only. This update was released to solve issues certain users were having with 3G connectivity. The Evad3rs have now released Evasi0n 1.3 which has been updated to support the iOS 6.1.1 firmware. This update will also work for those who are running iOS 6.1.1 tethered jailbreaks on devices other than the 4S. If you are on a tethered jailbreak of a beta 6.1.1 firmware, simply install the updated Evasi0n 6.0-6.1 untether package in Cydia to untether the jailbreak.

Remember that if you plan on …

This morning at the Hack in the Box conference, the Chronic Dev Team unveiled the much anticipated iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak by way of their new tool, Absinthe 2.0. The new tool can perform on untethered jailbreak on just about any device that supports 5.1.1 except for the Apple TV.

Untethered 5.1.1 Jailbreak to be released in a few weeks

pod2g

Well, it turns out the poll on @pod2g's blog paid off as he has announced that the new jailbreak he has been working on will be released in the next few weeks instead of waiting for iOS6 to be released to see if the exploits are still available. There are some oddities in the compatibility of this upcoming jailbreak. Apparently the jailbreak will work on iOS 5.1.1 with most devices, however the iPod3G, iPhone3Gs and AppleTV 3 are currently excluded. However, old bootrom 3Gs users will be able to use this jailbreak, it is only the new bootrom …

redsn0w1

Yesterday in our post on how to downgrade iPhone4S and the iPad2/3, we mentioned that the iPhone-Dev Team had left out compatibility for the 9A406 revision of the 5.0.1 firmware for the iPhone4S. Today they have released Redsn0w 0.9.11b2 which adds support for this firmware. The tutorial is exactly the same only it doesn't matter which version of the 5.0.1 firmware you use(as long as you have an SHSH saved for it).

Fix Error 37 and Jailbreak Failed: Service Wouldn’t Start after downgrading A5/A5X Device

servicewouldntstart

Earlier today we posted a method to downgrade A5 and A5X devices. Since then, we have been hearing of a few errors either with the downgrade method itself, or with jailbreaking after finishing the downgrade process.

The first error happens during the downgrade process, iTunes Error 37. I still have not been able to determine exactly what causes this error, but there are a few tips I can give you to try and solve the issue. First of all, if you are a Windows user, make sure you are running Redsn0w as administrator(you should always do this when running …

How to downgrade iPhone4S iPad2 and The New iPad using Redsn0w 0.9.11b1

downgrade

The new Redsn0w 0.9.11b2 has been released now which will allow A5+ device users who have saved their SHSH blobs previously to be able to downgrade their firmware. This was not previously possible since the previous downgrade method required the limera1n exploit which does not exist on A5+ devices. Remember that you must have saved the SHSH for the firmware you wish to downgrade to while that firmware was being signe for this to work. If you did not save your SHSH this will not work(and no, you cannot use an SHSH from a different device).

Now there is one …

Untethered jailbreak running on The New iPad

pod2g

Some more progress in the upcoming 5.1 untethered jailbreak has been made today. @pod2g has successfully jailbroken the iPad3(The New iPad). This is great news for owners of the new iPad that were concerned about being able to jailbreak in the near future. This is also good news for iPad2 and iPhone4S users since the jailbreak is sure to work on those devices as well(even though pod2g has personally only jailbroken the iPhone4 and iPad3 so far). The only device he is not sure that it will work on is the new Apple TV. He also provided a video …

Today the iPhone-Dev team has announced the release of Redsn0w 0.9.10b7 which finally brings the Corona exploit to Redsn0w so you can now jailbreak the iPad2 and the iPhone4S on 5.0.1 using the new version of the tool.

Besides the addition of A5 jailbreaking capabilities, the new Redsn0w brings some other new features as well. One of the great new features is that if you wish to make a custom firmware with your SHSH blobs stitched directly into the file, Redsn0w can now …

TinyUmbrella 5.10.11 released to save your device’s BBTicket

tinyumbrella

@notcom announced today that he had released an update to TinyUmbrella, the SHSH saving tool used to downgrade various iDevices. The new release includes a feature that will save your BBTicket, a new form of security Apple implemented a while back in order to prevent people from downgrading. It is likely that once there is a method released for downgrading A5+ devices, that you will need your BBTicket in order to downgrade.

The new version, TinyUmbrella 5.10.11 is available now, the BBTicket saving is "silent" so you won't actually see it being saved, but it will automatically …

ih8sn0w discovers an APTicket loophole which allows downgrading iPad2 and iPhone4S from 5.1 to 5.0.1

downgrade

Just a few minutes ago, @ih8sn0w the creator of Sn0wbreeze announced on Twitter that he has found a loophole in Apple's APTicket system which allowed him to downgrade his iPad2 from 5.1 to 5.0.1. He went on to say that the loophole not only works on the iPad2, but also the iPhone4S. Also, he has stated that once a new firmware is released for the iPad3, the loophole will also work to downgrade that device.

At this point, we don't have much information about this loophole or how/when it will be implemented into the the jailbreak tools, but there …

Ever since the release of the 4S, users have been waiting patiently(sometimes not so patiently) for a method to unlock their device to be able to use it on other carriers. There has been news of unlocks(both hardware and software) but no real solutions so far.
