Will Sunday be funday for the iOS 6.1 jailbreak?

ios6

This Sunday, is the highly anticipated Super Bowl between the 49ers and Ravens, but for those of you iOS device users, you might be happy to hear that the release of the jailbreak for iOS 6.1, the new iOS firmware released earlier today, may also be released on Sunday as well. In the past, the jailbreak developers have had a tradition of releasing jailbreaks on Sunday and it appears as though the new jailbreak may follow the same day of release. In a recent tweet, MuscleNerd asks what people have planned for Sunday with a mention of the evad3rs dev

evad3rs jailbreak dev team is the new “Dream Team”

evad3rs

Throughout the years, we have seen a number of various dev teams, the members typically stay the same, but every so often they form under a new alias. Yesterday, pod2g took to Twitter to announce the formation of “the evad3rs,” a team consisting of respected iPhone developers @pimskeks, @planetbeing, @MuscleNerd and of course, pod2g himself. With this much talent collaborating, it can’t be long before we see an iOS6 jailbreak!

We’re not sure why they have chosen to make this announcement at this time, but it looks like these are going to be they …

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.

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 …

MuscleNerd’s evolution of the iPhone baseband and unlocks discussion at HITB

musclenerd

As 3G/3Gs users patiently await the 06.15.00 basedband downgrade, a new video from this year’s Hack in the Box conference has been making it’s rounds on the internet. This is a discussion by @MuscleNerd on the evolution of the iPhone baseband and the subsequent unlocking tools that were developed by the iPhone-Dev team. It’s a long video, but it really gives you some great insight into what goes into unlocking the iPhone baseband and also why it is so difficult to create new unlocks for new basebands.

06.15.00 baseband downgrade to possibly be released this sunday!

bb

Earlier this week, we reported that MuscleNerd had made great progress on his 06.15.00 baseband downgrade that has been mentioned and speculated pretty much since the release of the iPad baseband unlock method. Those with a 3G/3Gs who have updated to the 06.15.00 baseband in order to unlock with ultrasn0w have been dealing with GPS issues ever since. Finally MuscleNerd has everything in place for a downgrade that will let you downgrade your 06.15.00 baseband to any other earlier iPhone baseband. Today, MuscleNerd tweeted that he is aiming for a release this Sunday(funday), but as always, release dates are tentative …

Those waiting for Absinthe 2.0 are free to update to 5.1.1 (sans unlockers)

absinthe20

@pod2g has recently given the ok, to iOS device users waiting for the upcoming Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak, to update their devices to 5.1.1. Currently, there is a tethered jailbreak available for A4 and lower devices and within the next few days, an untethered jailbreak will be released for all devices except for the Apple Tv 3, 1. Below is a “quick info sheet” which contains a more descriptive list of the features of the upcoming jailbreak.

Keep in mind that if you do update, you will only be able to perform a tethered jailbreak for now(A4 and lower …

Redsn0w 0.9.11 to include A5 and A5X Downgrading capabilities

downgrade

When iOS 5.1.1 was released, @musclenerd tweeted that there was an SHSH downgrade method for A5+ devices that Apple knew about but had not patched in 5.1.1. Today, some great news was released by musclenerd, an upcoming Redsn0w release will include the ability to downgrade iPhone4S, iPad2 and iPad3 from 5.1.1 to 5.1 or 5.0.1 provided you had saved your SHSH blobs while Apple was still signing those firmwares.

Redsn0w 0.9.11 is still in beta, but it shouldn’t be long before we see a public release and A5+ users who were forced to, or “accidentally,” updated their devices …

Apple working on patching SAM unlock method

apple

Well, it has been a few days since the, now infamous, SAM Unlock method was released to the masses. As expected, Apple wasn’t going to let this loophole fly for long. According to a Twitter post made my @musclenerd a few minutes ago, it seems as though Apple has already begun closing this loophole. For now, some users are still having success, but over the next few hours(presumably), less and less people will be able to unlock with this method until eventually it will be completely closed. If you have not yet unlocked your phone with this method and …

So, we heard a few hours ago that Stefan Esser (@i0n1c) Jailbroke the iPad 2 on 5.1, then @MuscleNerd Jailbroke the new iPad, now Stefan Esser has come out with a video demonstrating an untethered jailbreak on the new iPad .

Note: Stefan Esser covers the bottom corner of Cydia because it shows his UUID.

No ETA as to when this is going to be released to the public, but it’s definitely a huge step in the right direction.…
