DevTeam releases ultrasn0w unlock for iOS 5



ultrasn0w-124

The iPhone Dev-Team has released an update to their UltraSn0w unlock bringing support for iOS 5. Remember that NO new basebands are supported in this release. It only adds support for iOS 5 with old basebands.

Here is the list of supported basebands:

  • iPhone 4: 01.59.00
  • iPhone 3G/3GS: 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, 06.15.00.

If have one of the above baseband version and need unlock you can upgrade to iOS 5 without updating your baseband using RedSn0w 0.9.9b5 or Sn0wBreeze 2.8b8.

Ultrasn0w 1.2.4 is available in Cydia.

iOS 5 jailbreak is ready (RedSn0w 0.9.9b5)



redsn0w-099b5-mac1 redsn0w-099b5-mac2

The iPhone Dev-Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.9b5 - an official tethered jailbreak for iOS 5. Users don't have to point to downloaded iOS 5 ipws any more. Just run and jailbreak.

Currently only the Mac version has been made available. Windows version is coming soon. However Windows users can still jailbreak iOS 5 with Redsn0w 0.9.9.b4, - just go to "Extras" -> "Select IPWS" and select your iOS 5 ipsw file (can download here).

Good news for users who need carrier unlock (ultrasn0w or Gevey Sim). With RedSn0w 0.9.9b5 you can update to iOS 5 and preserve the baseband (modem) version for unlock:

The new "Custom IPSW" button on the Extras screen will create a custom IPSW without the baseband update for 4.3.3 or 5.0gm (iPhone3GS and iPhone4 only, for now). Remember not to accidentally restore to the stock IPSW after you create the custom one! The custom one begins with NO_BB_ (for "no baseband").

You must enter "Pwned DFU" mode before trying to use the NO_BB_ IPSW with iTunes (and your hosts file cannot be pointing to Cydia's servers due to the new blob nonce mechanism they're using in iOS5).

We will update our step-by-step tutorials soon.

You can download RedSn0w 0.9.9b5 (Mac) and RedSn0w 0.9.9b4 (Windows) here.

PS: RedSn0w 0.9.9 is a bit different from 0.9.8 version. You can learn more about other new redsn0w 0.9.9 features here.

UPDATE: Windwos users can use sn0wbreeze 2.8b8 to preserve baseband.

UPDATE: redsn0w 0.9.9b6 released, download here

RedSn0w 0.9.9b1: Major Update to Jailbreak Utility



redsn0w-099b1 redsn0w-099b1-extra

MuscleNerd has announced via Twitter that jailbreak utility RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 is released with major update and numerous new features:

Major improvements and features added to redsn0w 0.9.9b1! See update #9 at http://is.gd/6eek4Y Feedback: @redsn0w_testers

Indeed the list of new features is quite high. There are two main ones:

  • There is no need to download firmware any more. There is no need to push Browse IPWS button any more (but you still can).
  • Developers added lots of functionality to work with SHSH keys (extract, submit, download, verify, stitch etc)

However this new version does not bring features like untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.5 or iOS 5.

Due to some possible bugs we still recommend to use the old RedSn0w 0.9.8b7b, but the new 0.9.9b1 is worth seeing and playing with.

Here are links to our RedSn0w 0.9.8b7b iOS 4.3.5 jailbreak tutorials:

You can download RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 here:

Here is the full list of features from DevTeam:

RedSn0w jailbreak utility will have a major update soon



MuscleNerd, hacker from DevTeam, has announced via Twitter that a major update to RedSn0w is coming soon.

There will be no need to select an IPSW. Rather than requiring ipsw selection, RedSn0w will now automatically fetch the important pieces directly from Apple (and caches them so that it never needs to re-fetch them again). New version also brings the ability to save and submit SHSH Blobs to Cydia.

Will be pushing out a major redsn0w feature upgrade before my trip to Korea: http://is.gd/PMAdT1 (and look, no IPSW selection button!)

The new version of RedSn0w is expected to be released on Monday.

Check out the screenshots below:

If you are on older iOS you can jailbreak with redsn0w.

Cydia Tweak Brings WebOS-like Task Switching To iOS



iOS task switcher that is activated when you double-click the home button is obviously not the best solution for task switching on handsets.More user-friendly solution is implemented in webOS devices. It is based on metaphor of card switching and allows you to easily manage running tasks on the screen.
