The iPhone Dev-Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.6b5 for unlockers stuck at the 05.14 or 05.15 basebands.
The new redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 is out. It gives both Windows and OSX users the ability to flash the iPad 06.15 baseband on iPhone3G or iPhone3GS. It fetches the baseband files directly from Apple for now (the only IPSW you ever point it at is the stock IPSW for the FW on your iPhone right now). There may be a long delay while it’s doing this (their servers are currently getting pounded).
You can download the new version of RedSn0w here:
- Download version for Mac OS X:
- Download version for Windows:
Windows 7 and Vista users, please run redsn0w as Administrator in "XP Compatiblity Mode".
We will soon post step-by-step tutorials.

UPDATE: Обязательно (!) думайте перед тем, как что-нибудь сделать. Читайте внимательно и еще раз думайте. Не понятно - читайте снова. Спрашивайте до, а не после.
UPDATE 2: Если у вас 05.13 baseband и ниже - она ломается старыми способами, не надо обновляться до 05.14, 05.15 и 06.15. Хочется перейти на 4.1/4.2 - тогда делайте кастом прошивку с помощью pwnagetool.
Данное пошаговое руководство позволит вам сделать джейлбрейк и анлок iPhone 3G на iOS 4.2.1 с помощью PwnageTool 4.1.3 под Mac OS X. Здесь также будут даны инструкции по обновлению baseband, если это необходимо для анлока (отвязки от оператора сотовой связи).
Для пользователей Windows есть соответствующее пошаговое руководство.
Создайте папку "Pwnage" на десктопе. Скачайте в нее все необходимое:
UPDATE 2: new ultrasn0w 1.2 supports the following basebands:
- iPhone 4: 01.59.00

According to sources close to component makers for Apple’s computers, the company ships around one million MacBooks per month in Q4 2010. Part of the new MacBook Airs is accounted to 20-25% of the volume. In the first three quarters of 2010 Apple sold about 6.88 million units, and its global notebook market share rose from 3.7% in the first quarter to 5.2% in the third. Apple’s market share in the US market surged from 6.7% to 12.6%. So, it looks like 2011 will be an interesting year for Mac users. Moreover, Apple plans to open the Mac App Store, update the MacBook Pro line and launch new OS X Lion.
Finally got ultrasn0w working fully on 4.2.1. Apple inadvertently(!) broke ultrasn0w via aggressive compiler optimization
UPDATE: this is not a reason for update to iOS 4.2.1, wait for utilities.
Early this month we reported that Apple delayed the release of iOS 4.2 due to the Wi-Fi connection issues. Apple even released a second GM build for iPad to address the Wi-Fi issues. Finally, the iOS 4.2.1 went public. But iPad users still report that they experience Wi-Fi problems after upgrading to iOS 4.2.1. Some iPads fail to join a known WiFi network, some connect but connection drops after 5-10 minutes, some don’t drop the connection but are incredibly slow at rendering web pages and, for example, Youtube videos. Though the iOS 4.2.1 offers its users some fixes, including router reboots, resetting the iPad’s network settings and full restore to iOS 4.2.1, they seem not to work. Nevertheless not every an iPad user experiences such problems.
Mic Gadget posted some shots of pretty cute and realistic Steve Job's action figure which is little bit taller than an iPhone 4. Artificial Apple CEO is dressed in his blue Levi jeans and black turtleneck and looks almost like its prototype. I bet it would be a best-seller. Unfortunately, it will never see the light. A law firm representing Apple’s interests sent the following letter to Mic Garden:
Apple has reportedly expanded its Cupertino campus in California with the purchase of a 98 acre former HP campus earlier this summer. The land had been used by HP for twenty years before they decided to sell it in order to consolidate all parts of the company nearby Palo Alto. The deal may have cost Apple as much as $300 million. So, now Apple is the largest landholder in the Cupertino city. They now occupy 57 buildings in the city and the company continues to grow. Apple has not announced any plans for the new land, and has only started to use some of the existing buildings on its former, 50 acre land purchase made in 2006. Apple has been locating in Cupertino since 1977, when Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak set up the new company there.
Apple is rumored to plan to launch an all new MacBook Pro in April 2011 alongside an update to Final Cut Pro. The new design seems to be similar to the 2010 MacBook Air. The new MacBook Pros will have solid state storage and 512GB memory. Apple will remove the optical drive and pushed to market Light Peak optical cable interface. Apple is likely not to replace the traditional 13" MacBook Pro and leave only one legacy 15" design in the lineup. Prices will vary from $1,799 for the traditional model with upgrade options available to $1,999 for the new MacBook Pros and scale up according to configuration.
In iPad OS 4.2 'Orientation Lock' was changed to 'Mute Switch'. If you want to change it back there is an app for that.
NoMute, a jailbreak only application, switches the controversial mute switch from iPad 4.2 into its former (and more useful) orientation lock. The plugin is free and you can get it from the BigBoss repository on Cydia.
By the way you can lock screen orientation without jailbreaking through multitasking panel - just push Home button twice, slide to the left and hit lock icon.
These days NPD issued another "fact sheet" for the holiday consumer electronics buying season, which has some interesting facts on Apple's devices. Here are they:
- Last quarter became the most successful for iPad, as Apple reach a record figure of 4.19 million units sold over this three-month period.
- Those, who already bought an iPad at least two months ago, are using it 18 hours per week on the average.
- 58% of all the iPad buyers have Wi-Fi model, other 42% chose to purchase 3G-enabled model.
