We all want this to be finished ASAP, we’re getting tired!”

Create Custom iOS Settings With Preference Folders [Cydia Apps]

Another Jailbreak tweak on offer for iPhone users is the “Preference Folders“. As the name suggests the app lets iOS users create folders inside the Settings app. They can then populate these folders with whatever settings they like, creating a selection of most used settings or perhaps one that contains everything they never use, and just don’t want to see all the time.

If you happen to be the kind of person who is constantly scanning through his setting app in the search of one particular setting then, this app can be of great use to you.

Download Redsnow 0.9.9b6 to Jailbreak iOS 5 on Windows

The iPhone Dev Team has finally released an update to Redsn0w which adds support for Windows users. The previous version released a week back lacked support for Jailbreaking iOS5 final on Windows.

This update also fixes the aGPS issues with iPhone 3GS.

From the iPhone Dev-Team:

We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode.

It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked).  If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).

Download:

Redsn0w 0.9.9b6 for Windows
Redsn0w 0.9.9b6 for Mac

Follow this Guide in case you’re not already familiar with using Redsn0w.

UltraSn0w updated to Unlock iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 on iOS5

iPhone Dev Team has updated their famous Ultrasn0w software, which will unlock your 3GS & iPhone 4 under iOS 5.

UltraSn0w 1.2.4 is now available, which supports iPhone 3GS and 4G basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, and 06.15.00. now you want to unlock then only baseband is available is 01.59.00.

To getting things done quickly, user first needs to jailbreak their iPhone, so the only way to get iOS 5 on these devices while preserving the baseband is to use a custom IPSW for upgrade. Ultrasn0w is so far the easiest way to unlock iPhone. All user need is to just install a package on user jailbroken device.

The most important thing is, Ultrasn0w supports only few basebands so be sure that your version is supported & then you are good to go for unlocking your iPhone. Also note that all current iOS 5 Jailbreaks are tethered. Which means you’ll have to re-Jailbreak everytime you restart your device.

To Install it, open up Cydia and Search for “ultrasn0w”.

[How to] Jailbreak iOS 5 – iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch

iOS 5 brings in a ton of new features for which everyone is very eager to update and get a feel of the new OS. iOS 5 BETA was launched for Developers in order for them to create and test their existing apps. But a lot of consumers who were eager to use iOS 5 too have gone ahead and installed it on their iDevices with the help of their Developer friends.

Just today a Jailbreak was released for iOS5. This is a tethered jailbreak which means everytime you restart you device and want to use the jailbroken apps you will need to run Redsn0w again.

This jailbreak works on the following devices:

  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad 1
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

The following applications provided by  Jailbreaking  are currently absent :

  • MobileSubstrate
  • Springtomize
  • PhotoMail
  • ActionMenu
  • Celeste
  • BiteSMS
  • WinterBoard

 

Things you’ll require:

Jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad 4.3.1 using Redsnow – Untethered [Guide]

The iPhone Dev Team has just released the tools to a Untethered Jailbreak for the latest iOS v4.3.1.

The device support list is as follows:

  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1
  • AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)

The iPad 2 is not supported cause it uses a newer bootrom version that still needs to be patched.

Both pwnagetool and redsnow can be used to perform this jailbreak. I’d suggest you go with Redsnow as its more easier to use and simpler.

Download RedSn0w 0.9.6rc9 :

Redsnow for Windows : Click Here

Redsnow for Mac : Click Here

PwnageTool_4.3.dmg : PwnageTool_4.3.dmg.6293151.TPB.torrent

 

The reason I highly recommend Redsnow is cause you don’t need to wipe any data i.e. you can simply click the Update button to get to 4.3.1 and retain all your Songs, Music, Apps and everything without the need for a complete re-sync as in PwnageTool.

Update to 4.3.1 using the Update button via iTunes. (iPhone 4 AtnT Locked users should NOT try this. Read the note at the end of the page for more info.)

Follow these Steps to Jailbreak your iDevice running 4.3.1 using RedSnow:

1.Open Redsnow

2. Click on Browse and select the IPSW firmware file for 4.3.1.

For Mac the Location is : Your Name > Library > iTunes > iPad Software Updates

For Windows the location is : C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

3. Once the IPSW is successfully identified, click on Next. Now you will get the following screen to prepare you to boot into DFU Mode inorder to load the exploit.

4. Click Next and you will get the steps to enter DFU Mode. If you’re still finding it difficult to enter DFU mode, follow this nice video tutorial which explains the procedure nicely.

5. Once you correctly enter DFU, you will see the following screen :

6. Your device will go start the Jailbreak Process. Wait for it to be finished and you will have an Untethered Device with 4.3.1.

 

Note for Factory Locked iPhone 4 Users:

For those using an iPhone unlocked with ultrasn0w do not update to 4.3.1 using the official method. If you already have, then tough luck. The iPhone 4 baseband is very difficult to hack and would take a while to get patched.

For others with iPhone 4 on older firmware and unlocked with ultrasn0w, please stay where you are until ultrasn0w is updated for 4.3.1. Once ultrasn0w is updated to support 4.3.1 you will have to use pwnagetool to create a custom IPSW and then update. Updated ultrasnow is said to be released today on Cydia.
Another sureshot way to make sure your carrier locked devices stay unlocked even after an upgrade of iOS versions you can purchase SIM Unlock tools. Some of these tools even provide iPhone 5 SIM unlocking!

iPad Jailbreak sooner than expected

iPad has just been launched a couple of days back and news of it being jailbreaked are already spreading fast!

A well known iPhone Hacker ‘MuscleNerd‘ found the exploit and implemented it within 24rs of iPads launch! An exploit being found so soon means that an automated Jailbreak solution will be out very soon.

Most of us are familiar with the process of Jailbreaking and the things it offers. Custom Themes, Widgets and many other 3rd Party applications which are denied from the App Store. iPad will offer much more in terms of customizations after jailbreaking than whats possible on the iPhone due to its screen size.

A lot of real estate is been wasted and it will be very exciting on how the Homebrew community  makes use of that.

The exploit seems to be Browser driven and grants you Root access and ability to run unsigned applications.
