How to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 Beta on iPod touch 3G / 2G


With Sn0wbreeze 1.8 for Windows, you can now create custom firmware files of iOS 4.1 Beta for iPod touches which are already jailbroken on iOS 4.x. Currently, only iPhone 3GS (old bootrom pwned on iOS 4.x, and new bootrom pwned on 3.1.2 or with 3.1.2 SHSH blobs), iPod touch 2G (non-MC model, and already jailbroken on iOS 4.x), and iPod touch 3G and 2G (MC model) pwned on 3.1.2 or with 3.1.2 SHSH blobs are supported. So if you qualify any of these requirements, then you are good to go for a iOS 4.1 Beta jailbreak with sn0wbreeze 1.8. iPhone 3G users will have to jailbreak using Redsn0w, guide for which is posted here.

Unlock iOS 4.0.1 with Ultrasn0w [How to Guide]


iOS 4.0.1 was released earlier today for iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G. Fortunately for all iPhone unlockers, the baseband wasn’t upgraded from 05.13.04, which means you can unlock your iPhone even on the latest iOS 4.0.1 firmware. Since currently there is no jailbreak tool available for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), and the current jailbreak tools for iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) are not compatible with iOS 4.0.1, so the only device which can currently be jailbroken and unlocked on iOS 4.0.1 is iPhone 3G.
How to: Jailbreak iPhone 3G on iOS 4.0.1:
Step 1: 
Follow the complete guide posted here to jailbreak your iPhone 3G using Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 on iOS 4.0.1.

  • Now touch on “Sources” as seen in the screenshot below:

Downgrade iOS 4.1 iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G and iPod touch to iOS 4 / iPhone 3.1.3 / 3.1.2 [How to Guide]


iOS 4.1 Beta was seeded to developers yesterday. Since the iOS 4.1 is currently onlyjailbreakable on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (non-MC model), you may want to downgrade your other iOS based devices from iOS 4.1 so that you can jailbreak them on iOS 4, or iOS 3.1.3 / 3.1.2 (formerly iPhone 3.1.3 or 3.1.2).
The following step by step guide will help you rollback / downgrade to iOS 4, iPhone 3.1.3 and 3.1.2 from iOS 4.1 Beta as long as you have SHSH blobs saved for the respective firmwares for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod touches.

Downgrade iOS 4.1
Step 1: Download the required old ipsw firmware files. (Download links: iOS 43.1.3,3.1.2)
Step 2: Put your device into DFU mode (not recovery mode).
  • Connect your iPhone to your computer.
  • Turn iPhone off.
  • Start iTunes.
  • Hold Power and Home buttons together for 10 seconds or so.
  • Release Power button but keep holding the Home button until your computer recognizes a new USB device.
  • iTunes will now recognize your iPhone.
Note: Your iPhone screen at this time should be blank (black in color), if not, then you are most likely in Recovery Mode, not DFU mode.
(Step 3 is for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users only. If you are on iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2G (non-MC model), skip Step 3 and continue from Step 4)
Step 3: This step is applicable to iPhone 4iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G and iPod touch 2G(MC model) which have their SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) saved on Cydia for the firmware you downgrading on. If you don’t have your SHSH files saved, you cannot downgrade the mentioned devices.
So what we will do is to trick iTunes into thinking that it is watching Apple servers, while in real, we are going to change the address to Saurik’s server.
  • Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ and locate “hosts” file.
Hosts file in Windows
Mac users can get to “/etc/” directory by going through “Go –> Go to Folder” from Finder.
Hosts file in OS X
  • Open this “hosts” file in Notepad (for Windows) or TextEdit (for Mac OS X) and add this
74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
line as shown in the screenshot below:
21
Now simply save this file and you are good to go!
NOTE for Windows 7 and Vista: Start “Notepad” with Administrator privileges by right clicking on “Notepad” app, and click on “Run as Administrator“ option.
Step 4: You will now have to restore your iPhone or iPod touch to the firmware you downloaded in Step 1. Click on your phone icon from the sidebar in iTunes. Now press and hold left “alt” (option) button on Mac (Left “Shift” button on Windows) on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update” or “Check for Update”) button in the iTunes and then release this button.
iTunes
This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your downloaded firmware file. Select that ipsw file and click on “Open”.
Step 5: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps. Be patient at this stage and don’t do anything silly. Just wait while iTunes installs firmware on your iPhone or iPod touch. Your iPhone screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. Now at some point, iTunes will throw 1011, 1013 or 1015 error at you. This is normal, just ignore this error as the firmware has already been successfully installed on the device.
Step 6: Now you will need to exit your device from Recovery Mode. To do this, download a program called RecBoot (Windows / Mac). Run it and the click on “Exit Recovery Mode” button. Your device will now restart normally.
RecBoot
This is it, you should now be able to jailbreak your device on this older OS.  For iPhone 3.1.2 firmware, you can use blackra1nPwnageToolredsn0wsn0wbreezeultrasn0wand blacksn0w to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone and iPod touch. For iPhone 3.1.3 firmware for iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS and iPod touch 1G/2G, you can use redsn0w 0.9.3,redsn0w 0.9.4sn0wbreezePwnageTool 3.1.5. Unlocking can be done using ultrasn0w orblacksn0w. iPhone 3.1.3 (on devices with new bootrom and baseband) can use Spirit to jailbreak iPhone 3GS/3G and iPod touch 3G/2G.

Jailbreak iOS 4 on iPod touch 3G and iPod touch 2G MC Model


Sn0wbreeze 1.7 for 4.0 has been released. Just like PwnageTool 4.0 / 4.01 for Macs, you can now create custom pwned / jailbroken ipsw files on Windows too which can now jailbreak all iOS devices (except iPhone 4) on iOS 4, including iPhone 3GS (new bootrom),iPod touch 2G (MC models) and iPod touch 3G. But there is a catch to it! You will need to have their SHSH blobs saved for iOS 3.1.2 in order to successfully jailbreak these devices on iOS 4. Also the jailbreak for iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPod touch 2G (MC models) and iPod touch 3G on iOS 4 will be tethered, which means whenever you turn off your phone, you will need to re-connect it to a computer to be able to turn it back on.

Sn0wbreeze 1.7
The step by step guide to jailbreak these devices is almost exactly similar to the last release. Simply follow the guide posted here to jailbreak your iPod touch on iOS 4 using Sn0wbreeze 1.7. Once you have created a custom firmware file, you can simply restore to it via iTunes 9.2. If there are any changes, we will redo the guide and post it again here.
Sn0wbreeze 1.7 (3)
If you don’t have your 3.1.2 (NOT 3.1.3SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) files saved, you will have to then wait for the next version of Spirit which is likely to be released as soon as Apple releases the next firmware update i.e. iOS 4.0.1 / 4.1 and it will support all iOS devices including iPhone 4.

Jailbreak iOS 4 on iPhone 3GS (New Bootrom) with SHSH Blobs [How to Guide]


iH8sn0w – the developer behind popular iPhone jailbreak tools such as sn0wbreeze for iPhone 3.1.3 / 4.0f0recast and BlackBreeze has just written a detailed tutorial on how to jailbreak iPhone 3GS (with new bootrom) on iOS 4. But as I mentioned earlier, there is a little catch to it.
1) it is a tethered jailbreak (whenever you turn off your phone, you will need to re-connect it to a computer to be able to turn it back on) and
2) it will only work for those devices which have their SHSH blobs (ECID SHSH) files for3.1.2 (NOT 3.1.3) saved on Cydia.

Jailbreak iPhone 3GS New Bootrom
If you meet all the requirements, and have lots of patience, you can follow the guide posted below to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS (with new bootrom) on iOS 4.
Warning Note: All the standard warnings apply. This is for advanced users only. Only proceed if you think you know your iPhone inside out.
Pwning 4.0 on New Bootrom 3G[S] w/3.1.2 SHSH Blobs
I wrote this all on the road with my iPad, so sorry if there is any major Grammar errors. If anyone points out any errors, I’ll fix it up. Anyways…
——-
I figured making a tool would take a bit too long. So, i’m going to write up this tutorial. It isn’t recommended for regular users.
**BEFORE PROCEEDING, ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE YOUR PHONE BACKED UP!**
——-
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
* An iPhone 3G[S] — new bootrom
* 3.1.2 SHSH blobs.
* difrnt’s iBSS grabber (http://bit.ly/3QLb5S)
* Payload Pwner for the 3GS. (http://www.mediafire.com/?jy0wzomw2jk)
sn0wbreeze V1.6.2
* iBooty (http://www.mediafire.com/?qwzzjhziwz0)
* LibUSB (64-Bit users read carefully!!!)
* 3.1.2/4.0 3GS firmware downloaded. [Download iPhone 3.1.2 / DownloadiOS 4.0]
——-
STEP A : Grabbing your 3.1.2 iBSS file.
Pointing your hosts :
I : If you have your shsh blobs saved on Cydia/Saurik’s server then follow this tutorial. — http://saurik.com/id/12
II : If you have it saved with TinyUmbrella, then download the GUI here. — http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/
——-
Restoring to grab the iBSS file.
I : Place your device in DFU.
II : Start up the iBSS/iBEC grabber.
III : Put the save folder on a new folder on your desktop.
IV : Hit "Start Monitoring".
V : Now go back to iTunes and do SHIFT + Restore. Then browse for your 3.1.2 IPSW. You will need to restore
to 3.1.2 in order to pwn 4.0.
——-
Saving your iBSS
I : After Restoring, Go to the folder that you have specified to save your iBSS file.
II : You will see folders like (Per**.tmp). Go into one of them, and you’ll see a folder called "Firmware". Go there. Then go to the folder "dfu".
III : Copy the iBSS file to a safe place, then you can remove the folder created by the iBSS Grabber.
——
STEP B : Creating custom 4.0 firmware.
I : Download sn0wbreeze from http://ih8sn0w.com and create your custom 4.0 ipsw. [How to Guide]
*Ignore the warnings after browsing for the ipsw.*
——
STEP C : Installing LibUSB for iRecovery
Run this mini tool to detect your O/S + Arch. — Windows + Arch. Detector  (http://www.mediafire.com/?imyzm2t3zam)
*********
WARNING : IF LIBUSB IS NOT INSTALLED PROPERLY, YOUR USB MIGHT NO LONGER WORK!
*********
Windows XP Users download this installer — LibUSB Installer (http://www.mediafire.com/?zyy0mjthhij)
*********
Windows Vista/7 users RUNNING 32-Bit:
* Download the installer (http://www.mediafire.com/?zyy0mjthhij) and run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP.
*********
If you are a 64-Bit user, follow this tutorial – (http://bit.ly/9N423f)
*********
Once LibUSB is installed iRecovery should be able to function now.
——-
STEP D : Pwning iBSS + iBoot
I : Download this easy tool here — Payload Pwner for 3GS // It will help you create the payloads.
**SAVE THE PAYLOADS WHERE iBooty is.**
——-
STEP E: iBooty Prep.
Most of you know of the utility "iBooty" that I made for Aki_nG.
It will work as long as you place all of the correct files there.
I : Download iBooty GUI here — iBooty for 3GS (http://www.mediafire.com/?qwzzjhziwz0) and Extract it.
II : Extract your Custom IPSW created by sn0wbreeze with 7-Zip or another un-archiver.
III : Grab the kernelcache and bring it into the same folder as ibooty.
Also grab the iBEC from the folder "Firmware\dfu\iBEC.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu"
IV :
* Rename your iBSS 3.1.2 signed to "ibss312.dfu"
* Rename your Kernel 4.0-Custom to "kernel.40"
* Rename your iBEC 4.0-Custom to "ibec40.dfu"
======
Your folder should look like this :
- iboot.payload <– Created with Payload Pwner.
- exploitibss312 <– Created with Payload Pwner.
- ibec40.dfu <– Grabbed from Custom IPSW made by sn0wbreeze.
- irecovery.exe <– Comes with iBooty.
- readline5.dll <– Comes with iBooty.
- iBooty.exe <– Comes with iBooty.
- ibss312.dfu <– THIS NEEDS TO BE YOUR iBSS from the restore!
- kernel.40 <– Grab from Custom IPSW made by sn0wbreeze.
- sn0w.img3 <– Comes with iBooty.
======
——-
STEP F: Restoring to 4.0 + Booting
——-
*MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON 3.1.2 WHEN DOING THIS*
I : Run iBooty and Select "Prepare Device for Custom Firmware". Run the Process and if you see a snow flake, you can proceed!
II : Now open iTunes and restore to the custom ipsw.
***WHEN DONE, YOUR DEVICE WILL HAVE A BLACK SCREEN AND NOT BOOT! ITS IN A DFU LOOP [THIS IS NORMAL!]***
——-
STEP G : Booting
I : Just Re-Run iBooty and select "Boot It". If all goes well it will boot!
——-
Enjoy!
——-
Once you have jailbroken your phone, you can unlock it using ultrasn0w 0.93 (on anybaseband), guide for which is posted here.
Again, this is currently for iPhone 3GS with new bootrom only. Apparently, a similar guide for iPod touch (MC models) and iPod touch 3G is also in works. Oh and a tool to automate all this procedure will be released (no ETA) some time later. Stay tuned for more!
