New Unlock works for all iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, all 5.x firmwares, all basebands

unlock1 unlock1

A new unlock has been discovered that works for all iPhones and all 5.x firmware versions, all basebands are supported.

The method discovered by Loktar_Sun appears to exploit a logical bug in Apple's server and can be performed on any jailbroken iOS device. His procedure involves using Sam Bingner's SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) package to perform a series of steps that unlocks your phone to use a specific SIM.

It has been confirmed working by iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd who notes an update may be coming to SAM from @sbingner to make the procedure simpler.

We will post detailed step by step unlock instructions soon.

UPDATE: Tutorial is ready! You can find it here.

One more step towards untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak


Pod2g has bypassed ASLR at bootup, making progress towards the public release of an iOS 5.1 jailbreak. ASLR is a security method that randomly arranges important data areas. This is one more step toward untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak for all devices including iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and new iPad 3.

ASLR seems bypassed! Weird machines FTW. Time to ROP the payload.

Earlier this week pod2g revealed that the Chronic Dev-Team now has all the exploits required to release a userland jailbreak of iOS 5.1. It takes time to put them together in a public ready tool.

RedSn0w updated to support iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1


The iPhone Dev-Team has updated RedSn0w to jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1.

Version 0.9.10b7 of redsn0w adds a collection of useful features: It finally implements the corona-A5 jailbreak for iPhone4S and iPad2 devices still at 5.0.1. It can also re-install that jailbreak for those who accidentally uninstalled the untether. When stitching an IPSW, it can now grab your blobs directly from Cydia. It now shows a lot more info about your device (for instance, whether your iPhone3G has the vulnerable baseband boot loader, or whether your iPhone3GS has the old exploitable bootrom. (And the next new feature to be added will be built-in restore support, to provide an alternative to iTunes restores.)

Previously you needed to use Absinthe to jailbreak the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.

You can download the new version of RedSn0w from here.

We will update our tutorials soon.

Apple's next iPhone expected to launch in October with Qualcomm LTE chip


Analyst Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray expects that Apple plans to launch its sixth-generation iPhone before October of this year and with LTE 4G connectivity. Last year's iPhone 4S launch was uncharacteristic for Apple, which had previously introduced new handsets at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

"It is more likely the phone launches in October given Qualcomm commentary around 28nm chip supply," he said. "We believe Apple will include LTE in the iPhone 5 as an important feature in the product update."

Pod2g now has all exploits to release iOS 5.1 jailbreak


Famous hacker pod2g has announced that the Chronic Dev-Team now has all the exploits required to release a userland jailbreak for iOS 5.1.

News: we have all exploits required to do a new jailbreak. I'm working on bypassing ASLR at bootup.

Last month Pod2g said that the team only had a few pieces of a userland jailbreak. Now that the team has them all, it will still take some time to put them together in a public ready tool.

Since this is a userland jailbreak, it will be the first publicly available jailbreak of the iPad 3. I0n1c has demonstrated a jailbreak of the new device, however, he's said he will not release his jailbreak to the public.

Apple Testing A5X Variant in Next-Generation iPhone Prototype


Apple is reportedly testing a prototype of next-generation iPhone hidden under the iPhone 4 casing. The next iPhone is said to not include the iPhone 4/4s form factor, and Apple is testing the prototype in older casing in order to throw off leaks. The prototype iPhone is used to test a variation of A5X processor in an iPhone. The A5X system-on-a-chip in the iPad 3 was specifically designed to run the new Retina Display, so that adding this chip in the next iPhone wouldn’t make much sense.

Apple may soon begin selling iPad 2 units built in Brazil


According to a tipster who spoke with MacRumors, Apple may start selling the Brazilian-built iPad 2 soon, because the locally assembled 16-gigabyte iPad 2, which sells for $399 in the U.S., has received the proper certification to go on sale in Brazil.

The Brazil-built iPad 2 units are expected to be available alongside regular units built in China, also by Foxconn. Apple's new third-generation Retina display iPad has apparently not yet received approval for sale, whether assembled in Brazil or China.

Step-by-step Tutorial: How to (Un)Tether Jailbreak and Unlock iPhone 3GS Using Sn0wBreeze 2.9.3 (Windows) [iOS 5.1]


UPDATE: Apple released iOS 5.1.1 and has stopped signing iOS 5.1, so you can NOT restore to 5.1 any more (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys for 5.0.1. If you are on 5.1 you can jailbreak with redsn0w. iOS is also tethered jailbreakable with redsn0w.

Using this tutorial you will be able to create a custom firmware, tether jailbreak and unlock iOS 5.1 running on iPhone 3GS. This tutorial uses Sn0wBreeze 2.9.3 for Windows.

If you have iPhone 3GS with an old bootrom version 359.3, the jailbreak is untethered. If your device has bootrom version 359.3.2 and higher, jailbreak will be tethered. You can detect your bootrom version using this tutorial.

Tethered jailbreak means that each time you restart your device you will need to connect it to a computer and run iBooty.

Sn0wBreeze will also preserve baseband version if you need carrier unlock. It can also update your modem version to 06.15 if you need unlock and stuck with 05.14 or higher baseband. If you have new iPhone 3GS that was made after 28 week of 2011 upgrading modem will not help to unlock.

One-Third of U.S. High School Students Now Own an iPhone


Piper Jaffray’ latest semi-annual survey of 5,600 U.S. high school students show that 34% of surveyed students now own an iPhone, and 40% of surveyed students indicated that they intend to purchase an iPhone within the next six months.

Such boom seems to be driven by low-cost options from Apple. Apple and AT&T dropped the price of the iPhone 3GS to free on-contract with the introduction of the iPhone 4S late last year.

In our most recent survey the percentage of teens that own an iPhone came in at 34%, up from 23% in the Fall and 17% last Spring. We believe the meaningful uptick in iPhone ownership among teens may be driven by the cheaper $49 iPhone 3GS (in some cases free). Interest in purchasing an iPhone in the next 6 months rose to 40% (another all-time high vs. our previous surveys). Purchase intent was at 38% in our last survey in the Fall.
