iPhone4S baseband bootrom now dumped
Here's a tiny snippet: http://twitpic.com/7mg5hp ...but we'll be digging into the rest of it too!
Earlier this week, it was announced that a very promising iPhone 4S unlock is in the works.
MuscleNerd recently posted on twitter that iPhone 4S unlock is in the works. He also mentioned that this is 4S only, not iPhone 4:
Crazy Thanksgiving weekend! Very promising 4S unlock (http://twitpic.com/7kku4t) is in the works (Not i4, just 4S..that's crazy part)
This is excellent news for iPhone 4S users, but will leave many iPhone 4 owners disappointed.
MuscleNerd has also published the following photo:
Apple has recently released iOS 5.0.1. It is still tethered jailbreakable. However if you want untethered jailbreak or unlock - you should stay away from 5.0.1
Earlier this week pod2g reported that a code signing bug found in iOS 5.0 will make it easier for hackers to develop a full jailbreak for iOS 5 firmware version. That bug might have been closed in iOS 5.0.1. UPDATE: According to pod2g the bug is still present, but harder to exploit because another exploit found by Charlie Miller is fixed in iOS 5.0.1.
Also, MuscleNerd via twitter has warned iOS users that there is no downgrade from iOS 5.0.1 to iOS 5.0 yet and he recommends to wait until downgrade mechanism is available.
Jailbreakers and unlockers should avoid today's 5.0.1 until a flow for downgrading to 5.0 is developed.
Downgrade flow needs to be modified for AP "nonce" http://is.gd/b3G0io ... saved SHSH blobs are not enough to downgrade to 5.0

Famous hacker Pod2g has recently announced that he discovered a bug that can untether the iOS 5 jailbreak! He posted via twitter:
Hey jailbreaking friends, I've found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don't expect a release soon, but I'm gonna work hard in it.
Pod2g has found many vulnerabilities in the past including famous SHAtter.
Apple always cares about its image. Such control spreads even on social networks, especially Facebook. Of course, Apple has its own Facebook pages and Twitter channels to share news, product updates, support documents, etc. But the company seems to control pages of its employees in social networks : Tweet/post/blog negatively about Apple and you’ll get fired.
One of Apple’s employees in the UK left negative comments about Apple on Facebook. He claimed that the post were not public. But he was fired for “gross misconduct”. Apple does warn potential employees in advance to refrain from commenting on the brand. It seems that commentary on Apple products, or critical remarks about the brand are indeed strictly prohibited, because such action could be damaging for Apple’s image and commercial reputation.
In London Apple’s Covent Garden has been robbed early today. A gang of seven thieves on motorbikes has raided this retail store in an attempt to steal Mac notebooks and iOS devices.
According to some facts surfaced a day before Apple’s media event, apart from television shows and movies, you can also rent application for your iPod touch, iPad and iPhone on iTunes.
The first hearing over Samsung’s claims that Apple’s iOS devices violate the Samsung’s wireless patents has already begun in The Hague.The Korean company requested to ban Apple’s devices in The Netherlands.
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:
- Mac OS: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
- Windows: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
You can download RedSn0w 0.9.9b1 here:
Here is the full list of features from DevTeam:
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.
