Redsn0w 0.8 with iPhone 3GS

July 12, 2009 Leave a comment

redsn0wThe iPhone Dev Team released version 0.8 of Redsn0w recently, adding compatibility with the latest iPhone 3GS hardware running firmware 3.0. I had previously jailbroken my 3GS using purplera1n but couldn’t pass an opportunity to play with the latest method. Below is a video for anyone thinking of trying the jailbreak but unsure of what is involved. It’s fairly straightforward, the only bit that requires manual intervention is putting the iPhone into recovery mode and even that is guided by the app. Another top tool from the iPhone Dev Team, many thanks for their continued work.

iPhone/iPod 2.2 Jailbreak now available

November 23, 2008 1 comment

The iPhone Dev Team have updates their QuickPwn tool for Windows/Mac and Pwnage tool for Mac to support the latest 2.2 firmware. Full details and bittorrent download links are available from their blog, the software is also showing up on several other bittorrent sites. Before charging in I would recommend reading the post at the iPhone Dev Team site as there is a lengthy guide to which version you should use for each iDevice. Both versions have just arrived at Basshead Towers so I’ll be trying them out and posting some screenshots as soon as I finish typing.

Once again thanks to the iPhone Dev Team for their continued support of the jailbreak community, and hopefully certain news web sites will be a bit more positive this time around.

PwnageTool 2.1 and QuickPwn 1.1 for Mac released

September 13, 2008 3 comments

Both of the iPhone and iPod Touch jailbreaking apps have been updated this afternoon, and are available for now only as bittorrent downloads (until demand subsides) from the iPhone Dev Team site. Which app you use depends on how you want to jailbreak your device. PwnageTool will create a new restore IPSW file that iTunes can use, and QuickPwn will jailbreak a device without using iTunes. I had previously updated to firmware 2.1 on my iPod Touch so QuickPwn was the best choice. Read more…

QuickPwn for Mac released

August 29, 2008 Leave a comment

Following the release of QuickPwn for Windows and updates to PwnageTool for the Mac, QuickPwn has finally been released for Mac. Details from the iPhone Dev Team blog indicate the Mac version of QuickPwn is only compatible with firmware 2.0.2 at the moment, and until demand settles down it will only be available as a Bittorrent download. No problem there, it only took a couple of minutes to complete when I just tried it so there’s plenty of seeders out there. I’ll give it a try in the morning, and post screenshots if anything looks different to the previous QuickPwn for Windows.

QuickPwn tested, screenshots

The iPhone Dev Team today released an update to their beta QuickPwn tool complete with GUI by poorlad. It’s now compatible with iPhone and iPod 2.0.2 firmware, so for those brave enough to try beta software and running Windows it’s great. This is a bit of a turnaround to previous tools the Dev Team have released which always seemed to see Mac versions first. Fortunately I have a hard drive with Windows installed in my hackintosh for occasions such as this. Read more…

PwnageTool 2.0.2 released with Installer 4 beta

August 9, 2008 Leave a comment

Version 2.0.2 with support for firmware 2.0.1 is now out, and the iPhone Dev Team has a couple of other sources on their blog to help the struggling upgrade servers. I’ve updated my iPod Touch using PwnageTool 2.0.2 and everything appears to be working well. Cydia and Installer are both installed by default, which seems to me like a strange idea. No disrespect to the people writing these apps, but what’s the difference? Do we really need two apps for installing software?

Here’s a gallery of screenshots from PwnageTool 2.0.2

iPhone/iPod Firmware 2.0.1 released

August 5, 2008 Leave a comment

Available now through iTunes, the iPhone and iPod Touch 2.0.1 Firmware lists ‘bug fixes’ as its only improvement over the 2.0 initial release. Early reviews say the new firmware feels slightly more responsive. Upgrading a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch will at the very least remove access to the apps installed either manually or through Cydia. The new software is also reported to update the iPhone 3G baseband, which makes things more complicated for those waiting for a 3G unlock.

I’ve only recently got access again to my favourite iPod ebook reader, textReader, so I’m not willing to upgrade and lose it again. Hopefully the iPhone Dev Team will have their PwnageTool updated soon to cope with 2.0.1.
