Ultrasn0w 0.9.3 is available in Cydia stores using the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com. To add a repo go to the Cydia store and add it as a new repository. Read instructions to learn how to add a new repo to Cydia.
However, according to @iH8sn0w, who is the developer behind sn0wbreeze, sn0wbreeze 1.8 will be able to jailbreak iOS 4.1 Beta on iPhone 3GS, however, you will require to have a pre-jailbroken phone running iOS 4. Though the date of the sn0wbreeze 1.8 iPhone jailbreak is not yet know, it should definitely be out in the next few days.
Here is some good news from the Dev Team, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G (non-MC model) users who have upgraded to the latest iOS 4.1 beta can jailbreak their devices using redsn0w 0.9.5 beta 5. The process to jailbreak will remain the same, however, users will have to point redsn0w to use the 4.0 IPSW (the public one, not the developer GM one) instead of iOS 4.1 IPSW.
Apple released the beta for iOS 4.1 earlier today and there have been some rumors that Apple may display a watermark on the phone that it is jailbroken, just like Windows shows a “Not Genuine” alert for PCs.
Also, iOS 4.1 has new encryption technology, that will constantly check if iPhone or iPod touch, have been jailbroken. This is done by digital watermark that appears when iOS is jailbroken, and this watermark cannot be removed, even if reverted to unjailbroken status. Apple store employees will check for the watermark during iPhone service.
However, @MuscleNerd from Dev Team has said that just like earlier rumors about the AT&T OTA jailbreak detector, this “Watermark” encryption is just rumor. This comes from a guy who has been working on jailbreaking the iPhone for quite sometime now.
So rest assured, the Watermark encryption should be not be a problem, and even if it does you can be rest assured that the Dev team will take care of it.
If you have a jailbroken iPhone, you might want to backup your SHSH Blobs to Cydia. SHSH blobs are required for older OS so that you can jailbreak newer versions of iOS. If you are already using iOS 4, it is highly recommended by the Dev Team to backup your SHSH Blobs locally or on Cydia.
If you want to backup iOS 4 SHSH blobs locally, you can use a tool called TinyUmbrella to backup your iOS 4 SHSH blobs so that you can use it to jailbreak when you upgrade to iOS 4.1. To backup your SHSH blobs download TinyUmbrella and run it, connect your iPhone or iPod Touch to the computer and click on the “Save My SHSH” button to start the backup process.
TinyUmbrella is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The update is a one click process, so do it before iOS 4.1 hits the street to be on the safer side. You can download TinyUmbrella for Windows from here, Mac OS X from here and Linux from here. More download links can be found at the official site here.
Right now there is not concrete news from the Dev Team or other iPhone jailbreak developers as to whether they are working on updating the software to work with iOS 4.1. Nevertheless, it is a bit early to say anything since this is still beta software and Apple may go through several iterations before they release iOS 4.1 to public.
We will keep an eye on new developments regarding Jailbreaking iOS 4.1 and Unlocking iOS 4.1 and post the news as we come across them. Till then keep your fingers crosses and subscribe to our Mobile News to keep an eye on updates.
Earlier today, few pictures of iPhone 4 unlock had been posted by the Dev Team, the unlock was achieved by a Dev Team member @planetbeing. He had promised a video of the iPhone 4 unlock and it has now been uploaded to YouTube.
In the video, planetbeing shows off the iPhone 4 soft-unlock and also him being able to use iPhone 4 on another carrier, specifically Rogers Canada. So the upcoming iPhone 4 unlock will allow you to change your carriers with ease. The Dev Team has not announced when the new iPhone 4 Carrier unlock will be available, however, it might hit the internet in the next couple of weeks or so.
Here is some good news for all of you who have been waiting for a unlock for iPhone 4. A Canadian Dev Team user has been able to software unlock the iPhone 4 and has posted pictures online showing off the software unlock.
A soft-unlock is a quickest and swiftest way to unlock an iPhone and can be done through software without having to fiddle with the SIM tray or other parts of the phone.
The unlock which was accomplished by @planetbeing from the Dev Team and will give a lot of hope to users who have been patiently waiting for an unlock for the iPhone 4. Here are some of the pictures of the unlocked iPhone 4, videos will be uploaded shortly, once it is done we will add it here. Yesterday, GeoHot said that he will not be working on a jailbreak for iPhone, so this news will definitely cheer a lot of people.
We will post information about the unlock and availability of the unlock once more details become available, till then you can at-least be happy that a iPhone 4 unlock is on its way.
It was just a couple of days ago we told you that Geohot had managed to jailbreak his iPhone 4 on the day he got it. Sadly, he was in no mood to make the jailbreak public. Now, Geohot has updated his last blog post to say that he has taken a sort of temporary retirement from the iPhone jailbreak and unlocking scene.
Sorry, this post was probably a bad idea. Next time I won’t say anything. I miss when this blog was actually about technical things(I’ve been reacting too much to the feedback, which led it to the place it’s in now). I didn’t fully realize most of the current scene don’t care unless they are getting something. Now I do. It’s late tonight, I’ll think about what to do about this in the morning.
The real reason behind no release isn’t technical. It’s just that it will never stop, after blackra1n, people demand unlock, after blacksn0w, people demand untethered. I miss the days when jailbreaking and unlocking were difficult, it attracted a much higher caliber crowd. Also, to the haters, the picture is quite obviously fake
Quite a strange move from Geohot here. He was the first guy to unlock the original iPhone way back in 2007. Now the hope of all owners depends on Comex and iH8sn0w to release a jailbreak for the new iPhone 4.
