How to re-enable internet tethering on 3.1.2 firmware?





With internet tethering enabled you can use iPhone internet connection on you desktop or notebook. Here is a quick tutorial for experienced users. For everybody else - just wait for the new version of PwnageTool or some other utility.

Here it is:

A bsdiff patch to apply to CommCenter in 3.1.2 to re-enable tethering is available here for the 3GS and here for the 3G. It's just a 2-byte patch as shown below (and an appropriate readjusting of the mach-o's codesign hash):

USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! Your carrier may end up charging you for unauthorized tethering access.

Update #1 It looks like a lot of people have been looking at CommCenter lately because IRC user CleanAir had a similar tethering patch. Meanwhile over in the 2G CommCenter, WhiteRat and geniusan have patched in native MMS support for that platform. Kudos to CleanAir, WhiteRat, and geniusan for digging into CommCenter and coming up with patches!

Update #2 A few tutorials have started to pop up. Eventually this will be made a part of the normal PwnageTool flow but for now this is best left for the adventurous users out there!

iPhone jailbreak and unlock might end soon



no-jailbreak

Apple has updated the BootROM for the iPhone 3GS to iBoot-359.32. This software upgrade is reportedly not vulnerable to an exploit hackers previously used.

MuscleNerd, a member of the iPhone Dev Team, noted this is the first time ever that Apple has done a BootROM update in the middle of a product line, without a new hardware model. The Dev Team is a group of hackers who release tools used to exploit the iPhone OS. With the new iBoot hackers will not be able to use "24kpwn" exploit.

This means that anyone who will buy an iPhone 3GS these days, will not be able to jailbreak and unlock it, probably for a very long time.

Firmware 3.1 beta 3: what's new?



Here are couple more facts about new firmware 3.1 beta 3:

  • Looks like the limit is 15MB for sending photo and video via emails.
  • Usage now shows separate “Cellular Network Data” and “Tethering Data”. This is on a standard 3.1 beta 3 install, no hacks.

tether-usage

  • iPhone no longer vibrates when going into the edit home screen icon mode.
  • Button 123 is now _123:

button

  • Fixed problems with databases in different applications: Messages, Mail, Address Book etc.
  • In terms of API there are changes in UIKit (UIImagePickerController, UIVideoEditorController) and Audio Toolbox (AudioConverter, AudioSerives, ExternalAudioFile).
  • It still updates the Baseband (modem) to version 05:11:04.
  • Added the translation of labels "original size" and "Save as a new clip" when editing video.
  • Translated the string "ask to join network" in WiFi.
  • Enhance in sending and receiving SMS and MMS: In the previous beta it often returned an error when under conditions of a weak signal. Now everything seems to work in the best possible way.

ultrasn0w 0.9: ideas from GeoHot, implementation from DevTeam



ultrasnow

DevTeam updated ultrasn0w. They removed the daemon and used ideas of GeoHot's purplesn0w, but implemented these ideas in a better safer way. New ultrasn0w 0.9 uses 152 bytes of baseband RAM, which is 6900 timesless than purplesn0w. They also use mobile substrate to patch CommCenter, instead of patching the file itself.

Here is a list of features from DevTeam.

  • Works on both 3G and 3GS.
  • Works on hacktivated devices.
  • Works regardless of how you jailbroke your device.
  • Doesn’t patch any mach-o binary whatsoever.  (Doesn’t require a separate patch as each new firmware comes out).
  • Doesn’t install any additional daemon
  • Has no race conditions, no popups about “Missing SIM”, no network issues
  • Is almost 7000 times smaller than its nearest competition :)
  • Is available now via Cydia.  Source repo is http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com (that last “0” in ultrasn0w is a zero!)

Anyway this new solution is a very good one. It uses good ideas in a good way. We recommend to use ultrasnow.

QuickShottr will automatically upload screenshots to the internet [Cydia]



QuickShottr allows you to automatically upload the screenshots made on iPhone / iPod on ImageShack site.

As you know, both Apple devices can create a screenshot ("pictures" of the screen). User just need to clicking the same time Home + Power buttins. QuickShottr will automatically upload screenshots to ImageShack (in background) and will copy the link to the clipboard.

quickshottr quickshottr1 quickshottr2

So if you want to share a picture with someone just call the copy/paste and click "Paste." You can QuickShottr in any application, f.e. in instant messaging that does not support sending and receiving images. This functionality is also very useful for bloggers or those who must quickly send images.

Current version is 1.1, it has been improved a lot since 1.0. There is also a SBSettings toggle called QuickShottr Toggle, that will allow to activate and deactivate this QuickShottr functionality through a simple click.

QuickShottr can be found in Cydia via the BigBoss repository.

Quake, Quake2 and Quake Arena will be avaliable for iPhone soon



quake

id Software's John Carmack today confirmed to Shacknews that the company plans to bring three of its Quake titles to the iPhone platform, though Carmack himself may not be heavily involved in the projects.  "We will be trying to put some other developers on the future classic titles," said Carmack. "I don't think I'm going to be doing all of the work on Quake, Quake 2 and Quake Arena on there."

The id Software provides an intense activity for the next year, with new projects every 2-3 months. Staremo a vedere. We shall see.

iPhone 3GS is hacked [Photo]



iphone3gs-jailbreak-2 iphone3gs-jailbreak1

These are the first images of a Jailbroken iPhone 3GS. GeoHotz published them in his blog. DevTeam will publish an updated release of the tool only after the release of firmware 3.0.1. The reason is simple: Given that the Firmware 3.0 is full of bugs, it is clear that Apple will release an update soon. If the DevTeam release new tool, Apple will probably be able to block them with the next update. Tomorrow afternoon we will find more details on the official DevTeam blog. By the way firmware 3.0.1 is scheduled to be released in July.

iPhone 3GS jailbreak and unlock soon



hack-iphone3gs

And after the various Key and provocations made by GeoHotz, the DevTeam has decided to write a new article on the official blog with good news for all owners of an iPhone 3GS! The DevTeam has verified that the exploit called 24Kpwn (used for the first time to unlock the iPod Touch 2G) is still valid and it works wonderfully for iPhone 3GS.

It seems the new version of bootrom used by Apple in 3GS dates back in August, a few months before the release of 24Kpwn, so there was no time to solve the problem.

In addition, the new daemon released by the team under the name of ultrasn0w (unlock for iPhone 3G) will work with iPhone 3GS.

New versions of redsn0w (jailbreak) and ultrasn0w (unlock) with iPhone 3GS support will be released soon.

iPhone 3G Baseband Downgrade GUI [Cydia]



3gbbd

WARNING: This tool is NOT a toy. Just use it if you can’t use yellowsn0w on your 2.2.1 iPhone 3G. Otherwise, DO NOT INSTALL IT JUST TO TEST! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

This software is for iPhone 3G users who upgraged to 2.2.1 firmware, but still need yellowsnow unlock. Yellowsnow doesn't work with 2.2.1 firmware's 02.30.03 baseband. So we need to downgrade it to version 02.28.00, that was used in 2.2 firmware. To downgrade it you need this software, that you can install via Cydia. It is very easy to use. Just download it from Cydia (called 3G BaseBand Downgrage), open the app and click Go.

The 3G Baseband Downgrade just works on iPhones 3G with Bootloader 5.8, that can be detected using minicom. If you don’t know how to use minicom, there’s a “simple” way to know if you are 5.8 or 5.9 (but this is not 100% sure). If your iPhone was manufactured before September (2008), you are 5.8. Otherwise, you are 5.9 (that can’t be downgraded).
