simplysaru: @MuscleNerd thanks.. how long would the wait be for 4.2 any approximate time

MuscleNerd: @simplysaru if you’re on 3G or 3GS, just a day or 2 at most after 4.2 is public (just enough time to verify stuff)

How To Jailbreak Your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G Using PwnageTool (iOS 4.1

 hacks, iphone, iphone 4, iPhone 4G, iphone os, jailbreak, News  Comments Off on How To Jailbreak Your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G Using PwnageTool (iOS 4.1
Oct 242010
 

iPhone Dev Team has released PwnageTool 4.1.2 to allow iPhone users to create and update their iPhone with a custom pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1.

This guide will provide iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G users with step-by-step instructions to update and jailbreak their iPhone with iOS 4.1.

Some important points before we proceed:

Please note that jailbreaking your iPhone may void its warranty so proceed with caution.
Don’t forget to backup your iPhone before you proceed. You can refer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iPhone.
Please ensure that your iPhone has enough charge.
This guide is only for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G users.
PwnageTool is only supported on Mac OS X and is not supported on Microsoft Windows. Windows users should wait for Sn0wbreeze that is expected to be released shortly.
Users who want to unlock their iPhone:
PwnageTool does not unlock your iPhone.
You can use Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone after you have successfully updated and jailbroken your iPhone with iOS 4.1.
But there is a catch. Ultrasn0w 1.1-1 can only unlock the following basebands (you can check the baseband by going to Settings –> General –> About –> Modem Firmware):
iPhone 4 baseband – 01.59.00
iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS basebands – 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04
So if your iPhone is currently on iOS 4.0.2 or lower then PwnageTool 4.1.x will allow you to create a custom pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1 and preserve the baseband so that you can unlock your iPhone using Ultrasn0w 1.1-1.
If you accidentally upgraded your iPhone 4 with iOS 4.1 then its baseband would have got upgraded to 02.10.04. Unfortunately, 02.10.04 baseband shipped with iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4 cannot be unlocked nor can it be downgraded.
Similarly, if you accidentally upgraded your iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS with iOS 4.1 then its baseband would have got upgraded to 05.14.02. Unfortunately, 05.14.02 baseband shipped with iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G cannot be unlocked nor can it be downgraded.
Please read the instructions carefully especially the ones highlighted in bold.
If you meet the requirements mentioned above then you can proceed with the step-by-step instructions to jailbreak your iPhone using PwnageTool. Continue reading »

MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has reconfirmed that it will be possible to unlock the new baseband (05.13.04) that is included in iOS 4 Golden Master and that it might be possible to also unlock iPhone 4.

Two weeks back iPhone Dev Team had confirmed that they will release tools to unlock iPhone OS 3.1.3 and iPhone OS 4.0 now renamed as iOS 4.

The Golden Master version means that it is the shipping version of the software that developers must use to develop and submit iPhone apps that are compatible with iOS 4.0.

When MuscleNerd was asked a question about unlocking iPhone OS 3.1.3 and baseband 05.12.01 that’s included in it, he responded with the following tweet:

yep…the final 4.0 next week will be an even later version and is confirmed unlockable (possibly iPhone4 too)

iPhone Dev Team had discovered two exploits in iPhone OS 3.1.3 baseband (05.12.01) few months back but had decided to wait until a major version of iOS such as iOS 4 to release their unlocking tools. Continue reading »
