jailbreak Jailbreak & Unlock tutorials and FAQ

UPDATE: Apple latest firmware is iOS 5.1.1. Apple has stopped signing all other firmwares, including iOS 5.0.1, iOS 4.3.3 and iOS 4.3.5. This means you can NOT restore to 5.0.1/4.3.3/4.3.5 any more (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys for it.

If you have decided to perform an untethered jailbreak and unlock, you need to get the following information:

  1. What type of device do you have (iPhone 3G/3GS/4, iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPad 1/2, Apple TV)?
  2. Do you need unlock (if your iPhone locked to one carrier and you want to use it with another)?
    The answer is NO, if the device is not iPhone, if it was purchased as factory unlocked and can be used with any cellular carrier (f.e. in Canada, France, etc).
    If the answer is YES, you need to find out your modem version (Setting-General-About-Modem).
  3. What firmware version do you have? Take a look at Setting-General-About-Version. For example it could be iOS 4.3.3.
  4. What operating system do you use on your desktop (Windows, Mac OS)?

iphone activate HowTo activate iPhone without original SIM card

Having problems activating your iPhone? Don’t have original SIM-card? Cannot get passed emergency unlock screen? We have a solution:

If you have iPhone 3G, just use redsn0w to jailbreak and hactivate. If you have iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 follow these instructions:

If you are already Jailbroken:

So you have an iPhone with iOS 4.0, but don’t have the original SIM and stuck on the Emergency Call Screen:

  1. Download ifunbox software (download link)
  2. Run ifunbox software and sync with phone
  3. Go to /private/var/root/Library/, delete original lockdown folder and put this lockdown folder after you extract it from the zip file
  4. Restart phone

If you are not jailbroken

Sherif Hashim discovered that you can activate your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or even iPhone 3G without the original carrier SIM card. You need a “phonebook sim card” or 02 simcard. You can buy these type of sim at radioshack, bestbuy or other mobile electronics store (for example here).

Once you get passed the Emergency Call screen, connect to Wifi, jailbreak using and unlock using ultrasn0w. Once that is complete you should be passed activation and unlocked (able to use any sim). If you get a different simcard error, do the following final step:

  1. Download ifunbox software (download link)
  2. Run ifunbox software and sync with phone
  3. Go to /private/var/root/Library/, delete original lockdown folder and put this lockdown folder after you extract it from the zip file
  4. Restart phone

If you have itunes invalid response problem:

  1. Connect to wifi and ssh to your phone (via winscp, putty, terminal, etc).
  2. Navigate to your lockdown folder (/private/var/root/Library/).
  3. Delete pair_records folder
  4. Reconnect the cable and see that your invalid response problem is gone.

If you bought your iPhone 4 on ebay you will need the official sim (at&t) or a universal sim, like ones you can grab at bestbuy for $10 this will get you passed Emergency Screen.

Jay Freeman, better known as Saurik, the creator of Cydia, was interviewed by the home radio Make It Work. He speaks about the history and the future of the iPhone jailbreak.

saurik interview 400x222 Saurik talks about the iPhone jailbreak

Saurik describes the origins of Jailbreak and Unlock for the very first model of the iPhone. Jay explains that initially there were two important things to do with the iPhone 2G -- to use other carrier than AT&T and to install any application.

He continues discussing the main applications from Cydia. Cycorder was the first to allow video recording, and Winterboard was the only one that allowed users to change the graphical interface of the iPhone. He also speaks about Comex, the hacker who is currently working with the Dev Team for releasing and Unlock for the iPhone 4. According to Saurik the tool is still not ready to be released to the public due to severe bugs in the code. Here the second part:

iphones no att 400x380 Apple now offering iPhones contract free

Today Apple began selling iPhones without AT&T plan. Apple’s new policy is that anyone can walk into an Apple Store and pick up an iPhone 8GB for $499, 16GB for $599 and 32GB for $699. They allow one unit per customer per day, up to 10 iPhones.

The iPhones are still locked to AT&T’s network. Of course, these devices will be sold with the latest baseband which is not yet unlockable; however, you can use RedSn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak.

firmware 312 400x291 Apple released firmware 3.1.2 for iPhone and iPod Touch

Apple has just released a new firmware version 3.1.2 for all the iPhones and iPod Touches. Weights around 300 MB. Here is the changelog:

This update contains bug fixes and improvements including the following:

  • Resolves sporadic issues that may cause iPhone not to wake from sleep
  • Resolves intermittent issue that may interrupt cellular network services until restart
  • Fixes bug that could cause occasional crash during video streaming

Also, the iPhone OS 3.1.2 update for iPhone in U.S. is accompanied by an update to AT&T’s carrier settings file, which brings the settings to version 5.6.

You can download firmware 3.1.2 here or via iTunes. We strongly recommend users who want jailbreak or unlock NOT to upgrade, just wait for new utilities.

Here’s an extremely easy way to enable tethering on your iPhone 3G and 3GS (even on AT&T!) by just visiting a site on your iPhone’s Safari. No jailbreaking needed. Here’s where you go:

Then scroll down to the Tethering & Internet Settings, then choosing your country and provider. This works for both AT&T and T-Mobile, and will let you install the appropriate configuration. Just be careful though, that AT&T doesn’t officially sponsor this and might charge you extra for using tethering while you’re not supposed to.

And if this disables visual voicemail on your phone, just go and reset your network settings, and it should be fixed. If that doesn’t work, try updating your phone with an older version of the AT&T carrier settings.

Many iPhone 3G users would like to use internet on a desktop or notebook through their phone. There were several solutions: iPhoneModem, NetShare, 3Proxy.. they all used SSH and SOCKS proxy. One of the working ones was described here get internet on a desktop or notebook through IPhone 3G.

Couple days ago PdaNet (fullname is PdaNet WiFi Router) was ported to iPhone. Now our life is much much easier.

pdanet Connect desktop or notebook to internet through iPhone 3G

What you need is a jailbreaked iPhone with Cydia installer. Then install PdaNet.

All you need to do is simply to create an ad-hoc WiFi network on the computer and connect your iPhone to it (instructions). Your computer then goes online automatically. There is no need to specify IP (or any other) settings on either end.

Some nice features:

  • You will get FULL Internet access on the computer! (Instead of only applications that support Socks proxy.) In technical terms, all applications make direct TCP/IP connections to the server. Since there is no proxy involved, that also means less problems and less delays.
  • You don’t need to configure anything on the computer end whenever you connect PdaNet. No proxy settings, no extra software installation, no messing with static IP assignment, no switching settings back and forth when going back to your home’s WiFi router.
  • Yes it will connect at 3G speed if your phone has the coverage.
  • Supports PC, MAC, Linux or anything (include other PDA/phones) that connects to a WiFi router.
  • PdaNet runs in the background so you can still use other iPhone features when PdaNet is connected. But when you are done with them, go back to PdaNet to prevent the phone from entering idle and drops your connection.
  • To turn off the phone screen when using PdaNet, just cover the upper part of the phone (or simply flip the phone upside down). This will conserve your battery.
  • It is recommended that you charge the phone at the same time while using PdaNet, because both WiFi and 3G will be put on full speed, both consume a lot of juice.

One last note: over-usage of PdaNet’s tethering is likely to draw the eye and the ire of AT&T (if you use this provider), so use with care!

math1 QuickPwn, PwnageTool and WinPwn

There are so many tools, some for Mac OS, others for Windows, different versions… Complicated. So let’s summerize a little bit.

If you have iPhone 3G, you’ll be able to install 3-rd party non AppStore applications (through separate applications called Cydia and Installer) and run these applications. If you have old iPhone, in addition to that you’ll be able to unlock the device (use with any carrier).

There are two methods: quickpwn and custom firmware method. First one is for quikly pwning and jailbreaking  the device without restore. You should use it if you have unlocked device or an AT&T contract.

If you are Windows user:

  • Go for WinPwn. The current version is (also called 2.5 beta-2). Download here. It supports both iPhone and iPhone 3G, firmwares 2.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2. You can use either quickpwn or custom firmware method.
  • There is a separate QuickPwn tool for Windows. The current version is RC3. Download here. Do you need it? Yes, if you want to quick pwn and you do not like WinPwn (or you had problems with it).

If you’re using Mac OS:

  • Go for PwnageTool. The current version is Download here. Works with 2.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2 firmwares using custom-firmware method.
  • There is a version of QuickPwn tool for MAC OS. The current version is 1.0.0. Download here. It works only with firmware 2.0.2. Do you need it? Yes, if you want to quick pwn.
    QuickPwn is not a replacement for PwnageTool, they are different tools and provide different features, QuickPwn is for quickly pwning a device, whereas PwnageTool is designed to custom build and tailor the ipsw production process, both tools will be actively developed in the future.

    quickpwn03 QuickPwn Beta

    DevTeam created a quick solution for jailbreaking an iPhone. It is called QuickPwn. It is in beta, so be careful. It will allow you to pwn (jailbreak) your device very quickly without restoring!

    Who should use this tool? This is for those that are not planning to restore. It’s not clear what the activation state is after the process therefore, I only recommend this for those that have a contract carrier or an unlocked phone already.

    If you are on a stock device and using AT&T or a contract carrier, this is the perfect jailbreak for you. You will not lose your contacts or have to do any backups. Finally, if you are going to restore anyway, especially if you need to unlock a 2g, you may as well use winpwn or such.

    Currently QuickPwn requires your device to be running version 2.0.1 of the iPhone/iPod firmware. And it runs only on Windows. This requirement will change in a subsequent release.
