  • Kaatje Jailbreaks OS 4.0 Beta 4 on iPhone 3GS


    It appears that a hacker from Amsterdam by the name of Kaatje, has managed to create a custom firmware that allows iPhone 3GS users to jailbreak the newest iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4.

    The iPhone Dev team released Redsn0w 0.9.5 to jailbreak iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4, however it was only compatible with the iPhone 3G. With Kaatje's work, we now have reports of a jailbroken 3GS running 4.0 Beta 4. And to top it off, she has managed to do so without upgrading the baseband, thus preserving the ability to unlock on blacksn0w if you wish to go back or stay on the safe side.

    The method she describes requires a custom firmware using a patched PwnageTool. The patch will not work with the iPhone 3G, but thats what the current redsn0w release is for.

    “I accomplished this by patching asr, lockdownd, LLB, iBEC, IBSS, iBoot, kernelcache, MobileSafari, Services.plist, and fstab. The binaries were patched with IDA Pro and OxED and were then diffed against the original pwned files with bsdiff to create patch files. I then took the diff files and built a firmware bundle that I dropped into Pwnagetool and updated the cydia tree within Pwnagetool as well. Once this was done, I created a custom ipsw with Pwnagetool, unzipped it, applied a pwned LLB from a pwnagetool generated 3.1.3 ipsw, zipped it back up and restored to my device.”
    Although it's great news and fun for us users on 4.0, not all apps will be compatible of course. Cydia still has some issues loading and many applications install but fail to load and end up crashing, Those of you wanting to use apps such as mobileterminal, sbsettings, five icon dock will be out of luck for now.

    Note: She will NOT be releasing this custom firmware at this point due to prior agreements with the dev teams and of course for legal reasons and because they gave her many parts of the jailbreak.

      What is she known for? Being an OP on irc? Come on don't put her on a pedestal. posixninja did all the heavy lifting on this jailbreak. Everything else is well known how to do.


      This does not use any new exploits, so its safe for release. =P

      EDIT: you can upload your bundle but not pwnagetool

      What waves has she made? The jailbreak was made by posixninja. She just followed his instructions and posted it on her blog and on twitter.


      The ignorance of people is annoying. Its like when my cousin runs blackra1n and then calls himself a hacker.

      Just because you don't know what else she's done doesn't mean others don't.

      Releasing pirated rubbish and posting links is not good.

      It has come to my attention that a firmware bundle is floating around that is not of my work and I urge you NOT to use it!

      There is this PwnageTool for iPhone 3GS OS 4 (Bundle) going around. So, guy please don't put your iPhone 3GS at risk. (Please RT. Very Imp)

      @iH8sn0w hah the bigger problem is people risking their baseband with this rogue pirated PT from @4n0nym0u5DEV (which doesn't even work!)

      The pwnagetool is not perfect but it does indeed jailbreak the device.

      As far as she is concerned, I'm not trying to smear her but don't be ridiculous on her accomplishments. The article on this site doesn't even include the part of her blog where she mentioned posixninja! Considering he did it, he should get credit.

      Why do you think she didnt want it released (even tho its been leaked apparently)? She had to agree to the terms given to her by the people that made it. She verified that on her blog.

      4n0nym0u5 is a hater must be a **** beater knocking the work of others and chicks of all creatures. So if I spend weeks on creating something got help and found images and other downloads on the net then released it to the world I must be a biter or not worthy of praise for the work I've done. If this how you think then your a Hater hating on anyone or anything anyone dose is evil and Hating and faulse judging.

      Guys, I can't talk my friend Jordan out of being an idiot... he's gonna use this pwnagetool on his 3GS and I'm afraid he'll lose his unlock. Does anyone know if this preserves the old baseband and shouldhe select "activate iphone" or not with the 4.0 beta. He IS registered with his UDID, I think. Lol. So, assuming he is... what should he do? I'm just trying to save him from his own stupidity.

      Just tell him not to whine if he loses his unlock.
      Why is he doing it?

      Cause he wants 40, I keep telling him it's nothing special and that he's being dumb but he won't listen. I just hope someone who knows something about this will answer my questions so I can at least make sure he does this safely. >_<

      If he absolutely needs to do it, tell him to do this:

      Preventing baseband update as a last-ditch effort [iPhone Dev Team]

      If the restore doesn't work, then he needs to do the same thing to 3.1.3 firmware to keep his unlock. If he doesn't do it to one or the other, he's going to lose his unlock and have no phone.

      That was a lame comment. But now I know what kind of person you are.....or aren't.

      My comment is lame? You know what kind of a person am I?
      Well- that is lame my friend.
      Where is your spirit?
      My comment was my way of saying bravo Kaatje. I really didn't have any idea about penetration or any other vagina or penis related idea.
      You my friend, and people like you just need to drink something before you try to judge "lame comments". Maybe than you will realize that point of "Kaatje, I want to have sex with you!" ... and smiley ( :-) ) at the end is something that is normal in some countries. So many different people here my friend...
      One more thing:
      Next time, please, ask people "is that a joke?" or something similar before you judge them. By the way- no hard feelings here. I just hate when people judge before they know all story.

      So again - modified version:

      Kaatje, I want to have sex with you and have children with you and do everything you want me to do to you or for you...
      translation:
      Kaatje, I admire your work and you so much that I really can't find normal words do describe quantity of my admiration!

      All the best
