Jailbreak & Unlock tutorials and FAQ





jailbreak

UPDATE: Apple released new iOS versions and has stopped signing all other firmwares, including iOS 6.1.2 and iOS 5.1.1. This means you can NOT restore to 6.1.2/5.1.1/4.3.3 and others any more (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys for it.

If you have decided to perform an untethered jailbreak and unlock, you need to get the following information:

  1. What type of device do you have (iPhone 3G/3GS/4, iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPad 1/2, Apple TV)?
  2. Do you need unlock (if your iPhone locked to one carrier and you want to use it with another)?
    The answer is NO, if the device is not iPhone, if it was purchased as factory unlocked and can be used with any cellular carrier (f.e. in Canada, France, etc).
    If the answer is YES, you need to find out your modem version (Setting-General-About-Modem).
  3. What firmware version do you have? Take a look at Setting-General-About-Version. For example it could be iOS 4.3.3.
  4. What operating system do you use on your desktop (Windows, Mac OS)?

What to do if you need unlock

UPDATE: With the release of iOS 5 Apple has stopped signing iOS 4.3.3/4.3.5 firmware. You can restore to a custom 4.3.3/4.3.5 firmware only if you have saved SHSH keys for it.

1. You have iPhone 4.

iphone-4

1) If your modem (baseband) version is 01.59: you can perform jailbreak and software unlock and end up with iOS 5 using custom firmware.

How to update to custom iOS 4.3.3 (SHSH is needed) is described here (Windows) and here (Mac OS).

Tutorials for creating iOS 5 custom firmwares is available here (Windows).

  • There is official unlock for AT&T customers described here.
  • There is software unlock using SAM: tutorial is here. SAM unlock does not work any more.
  • There is hardware unlock using Gevey SIM here. It works for modems up to 04.10. Hardware unlock is an additional microchip used together with your iPhone sim-card.

2. You have iPhone 3GS.

iphone3gs

0) Here is the easiest way to unlock:

  • There is official unlock for AT&T customers described here.
  • There is software unlock using SAM: tutorial is here. SAM unlock does not work any more.

1) If your modem (baseband) version is 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, 06.15.00: you van perform jailbreak and software unlock and end up with iOS 5 using custom firmware.

How to do this and end up with iOS 4.3.3 (SHSH is needed) is described here (Windows) and here (Mac OS).

This operation is risky and you might loose GPS. Our tutorials will guide you through the process, there are three utilities you can use: redsn0w (mac), redsn0w (windows), sn0wbreeze (windows).

If you have 4.3.5 or 5 firmware you can still update modem version to 06.15: redsn0w (Windows), redsn0w (Mac OS), sn0wbreeze (Windows)

Our tutorials will guide you through the process: redsn0w (windows), redsn0w (mac) or just use the latest version utilities (proffered) following our 3GS guides: redsn0w (mac), redsn0w (windows), sn0wbreeze (windows).
