  • Dev Team Update - Unlock, Apple TV, Pwnage


    MuscleNerd shot out a few Tweets this morning letting folks know the status on various aspects of jailbreakland. I'll rehash the points:
    • There is an unlock on the horizon for both new jailbreakers and old, possibly not released until 4.2 though.
    • A new Pwnage Tool should be out by "Funday/Sunday" with support for the Apple TV 2G (the recent release), although most apps won't work yet.

    Developers will have to begin working on creating new apps/tweaks for Apple TV, and updating their current apps to support Apple TV if it makes sense per package. The Apple TV jailbreak situation is a new frontier here - it's not a touch screen device, so the entire JB experience may have to be starting fresh at least from a UI standpoint. Exciting.

      Jailbreak comes before the unlock. If there's no jailbreak then there's no unlock. That plus not everyone needs an unlock.

      Same thing happend to me as well regarding signal. I used to get servive everywhere. Since I upgraded to 4.0.1 I have no service or one bar which makes my calls all broken up.

      I misspoke, meant to say "jailbreak", I'm well aware all iPads are already unlocked. I do want to say that I believe I remember jailbreaking some iPod Touch beta firmware back in the 2.x days perhaps, so .

      But please understand my frustration with waiting for 4.x firmware for so long.

      I think it's all psychological. They didn't change the phones ability to get signal. They changed how the software reports it.

      because you need to jailbreak a phone first before you can unlock it

      I hope someone will be willing to help me out!
      I have an iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) from Rogers in Canada. I was using it in Kenya on iOS 4.0 jailbroken and unlocked on a Kenyan sim. My friend accidentally updated it but I stopped the update in time and therefore had to "restore" due to interrupting the update. I used my stored SHSH from Cydia to restore it to iOS 4 and then tried to use Greenp0ison to jailbreak it but it failed 4 times. Then I tried Limera1n and it says on the software that it is jailbroken however I am stuck at the "Emergency calls only" section (I am assuming that it needs to be hactivated too?). I do not have access to a Rogers SIM in Kenya and nor do I have access to what they call "Universal" sims. Would someone please help me out? I am sure there are answers to this posted somewhere but my internet connection is too slow for me to efficiently search for it! I hope someone will guide me to get back at iOS 4.0 or even 4.0.1.
      As long as I can bypass that "Emergency calls only" screen, I will access WIFI and then unlock it from Cydia using Ultrasn0w.
      Thank you (:
