Will do. Thanks! Which jailbreak should I use? I believe it's two out right now. I'm just learning about all of this so thanks for your help.
I know I can't unlock my phone right now. I was just asking whether I should jailbreak and wait on the unlock, or should I jailbreak it once the unlock is out.
iOS 4.2.1 update for iPhone 3G is useless. None of the updates work!
I sure do hope so.. Im most def gonnatry it...
What about if you already have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS using GreenpoisOn? Would you have to jailbreak your phone again once updated to iOS 4.2.1 with new jailbreaking tools? Or will GreenpoisOn still work? Any advice or information will be greatly appreciated, Thanks, Ed
Once a device has been jail broken with the ability to install new software, why not use iTunes to backup a means of jail breaking again after an iOS change?
Simple solution: write an app that takes any existing app from the AppStore large enough to be a "wrapper" for the Cydia app and places the Cydia executable inside of it. The app would appear to be normal (even the checksum can be fudged) and would be backed up by iTunes. Running that app would just run Cydia. Afterall, we are just looking for a means to copy new apps to the phone.
This is how we use to do things with other platforms, what am I missing here?
Not that I'm an expert at this or anything but I think there's a tad bit more involved in jailbreaking than just getting Cydia installed...
apple ships phones with the latest OS... like instantly... so if you don't have it in the next day or so... your SOL.
would never work... apps installed by itunes are run in a sandbox... they have no access to anything but specific API's outside of themselves... they would never be able to have the needed root access to the phone to install other apps, change files, create directories, etc etc etc
you are over simplifying and ignoring the fact that apple has many security features in place.
If I've already jailbroken my iPhone 4 using Limera1n for iOS 4.1, and a new one is later released for iOS 4.2, how would I go about upgrading that jailbreak?Would I have to restore my phone, install 4.2, then jailbreak and THEN reload all the apps I had previously?
Thank you so much!
Pwnage Tools 4.1.2 or SnowBreeze 2.1
If you have already jailbroken your iPhone 4, you just have to wait for PwnageTool 4.2, cook your custom iOS 4.2 firmware (using PwnageTool) and restore (use alt key) with iTunes.
If you update your iPhone 4 with official iOS 4.2 firmware your baseband will be update and unlock will not be possible.
Finally we have some hope of converting ipod 4 to iphone 4
i often found so many mature and philosopher like personalities here.
so iphonehacks.com soon will be turn into iphilosophyhacks.com
I have upgraded my 3G iphone to iOS 4.1 (8B117). The baseband is 05.14.02. can some one please help me with the following doubts? 1. Can i jailbreak it using redsn0w? 2. Is redsn0w available for windows users as well? 3. I need to do the unlock as well. Can some one please tell me when is the ultrasn0w release expected to unlock 05.14.02 baseband?
i have an i phone 3g withe ios 4.1 and Modem firmware 05.14.02 how can i unlock it please any one can help
Yes, I did over simplify the process for the sake of boring some, but it is certainly possible. Here is how....
Let's say iOS 4.3 is released. We (the various dev teams) figure out the changes to the new version iOS and we would then know exactly what is required to patch it (jail break so we can access everything). So, now as a user (*before* updating to iOS 4.3) you would download from Cyida the special app that converts an existing AppStore app into our jail break app, call it "FauxRa1n". This is the app we created that will patch the OS and install Cydia. We run FauxRa1n it prompts you for a legit AppStore app (big enough to contain the patching code and Cydia). The app is modfied. Backup your phone with iTunes and the app will be backed up. Now, we update the phone to iOS 4.3 and then restore our backed up files. We then run the modified app that was restored and suddenly iOS 4.3 is jail broken and the Cydia icon appears. From here we can get PkgBackup and do a restore.
This process completely eliminates the need for a PC or MAC. Of course, this only works if a phone has been previously jailbroken.
Cming from an older JB iPhone4 OS 4.1, how do u save/restore all your dwnloaded apps and like still manage to have it in ur latest upgraded version (say like 4.2.1)?? Anyone pls enlighten me with this? Tnx!
One more thing, if u have factory unlock unit that was already JB, would there be hazards involved by just upgrading latest iOS version via iTunes & just pick appropriate JB tool to JB again??
"would never work... apps installed by itunes are run in a sandbox... they have no access to anything but specific API's outside..."
The sandbox can be washed away with an exploit.
You can also backup your SHSH blobs independently of jailbreaking (including before you jailbreak) by using the program TinyUmbrella (formerly known as The Firmware Umbrella).
This will make a backup of your SHSH blobs to your computer, and by default, it will save an online backup with Cydia as well. I recommend doing this TinyUmbrella SHSH backup now, whether you jailbreak now or later or never.
There's more to jailbreaking and whether you can or can't unlock - just don't update iOS until you know exactly what you want to do *and* how to do it.
I await your release of this jailbreak method.

What about if you already have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS using GreenpoisOn? Would you have to jailbreak your phone again once updated to iOS 4.2.1 with new jailbreaking tools? Or will GreenpoisOn still work? Any advice or information will
