  • 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.

      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

      um. k

      She isn't of age to have children with you nor would she want to

      BTW the amount of ignorant people with the "I'm better than you" attitude in this thread is ridiculous.
      Posixninja does deserve recognition but this was Kaatje's work. He simply set the foundation for her. That's like saying all the great minds we learn about and honor shouldn't receive credit for their works because it was their TEACHERS from grade school that taught them how to read, without which they could never have gone on to do greater things, so their grade school teachers, who we don't learn about, should be who we read about in school rather than names like "Einstein", "Newton", etc.

      Just because you guys don't know what Kaatje has done doesn't mean she hasn't done them. She has been a big part of this community and is well-known throughout the dev teams.

      I LOLed when I realize that :-)

      However- I still admire her work no matter her sexual orientation - I still (!A JOKE!>>) "want to have sex with her" (<

      No disrespect to her but I kind of agree (not fully) with the creepy dev guy . She is well known on irc, but not for jailbreaking. She is just a regular on irc, so everyone knows her. It's a huge overstatement to say she is a big part of this community IMHO.

      Ok- thanks for telling me...

      I will stop commenting. You people just want to see my comment in a bad context no matter I explained what I meant actually. Ah democracy...

      Kaatje, I hope that you understand that I was not trying to offend you. If you don't- please forgive my sense of humor.
      Sincerely.

      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.
      For starters, p0snixninja helped me with beta 3, showing me the methods used to find the offsets and how to go about patching. Beta 4 was completely on my own, a lesson if you will, to see if I was able to grasp what I was shown with beta 3. So the work is indeed mine. If you read my blog entry to the end, you will see that p0sixninja received quite a bit of credit. I will paste it here as well:

      Many thanks to @p0sixninja for many hours patiently showing me the tricks and tips of jailbreaking 4.0b3 and then setting me out on my own to do beta 4. Without his tutelage, this would not have been possible

      As for not releasing it, it is beta software, which is under NDA by Apple. I gave my word to MuscleNerd, p0sixninja and chronic that I would not release it because we did not want noobs to install it, find out that a lot of things do not work yet with 4.0 and then go running to #iphone for support. The only people who should be running jb betas is developers to get their apps working with 4.0. It is not for general consumption. Some of us still have integrity.

      Could you please tell us what she has actually done?

      I'm not trying to be an *** or anything, but there's multiple posts on this page referring to her being such a big contributor to the jailbreak community, yet none of you actually show anything she's done. I consider myself to be a rather "in the know" person when it comes to jailbreaking and this is still my first time of hearing about her (granted, I rarely go on IRC), but some of you make it seem as if she's a female Geohot, M_N, comex, p0six, ih8t, etc.


      That being said, it is still a pretty neat accomplishment to have done.

      lol, I'm starting to think I should have just used kaatje's name in the description and not the title. lol This is one funny thread though.

      If you keep up with the community, then you know who the main contributors are of this. Kaatje did some finishing touches to it all, and that should be respected. There is no need for all of us to go haywire about this. It's simple a progress report... take it as you will... lol, lets love and not hate.

      As usual thanks goes out to the dev-team for initially making this possible.

      Not really. There's a lot of stuff that goes on behind the scenes. She has been helping the Dev Team for a while - but her name hasn't always been Kaatje.

      Trust me, the Dev Team know her, posix took time to help her. She has been arround and helping for a while.

      When you have to ask this question you probably aren't someone who needs to know.

      yah man, everyone's being a little girl about this ..... the fact of the matter is, it doesnt matter what her biography is- where she was born, where she lives, what she eats doesnt matter - she contributed to JB OS4b4, and we should be thankful for it

      so thanks kaatje

      I might get flamed for this, but that I took pawnagetool from @4n0nym0u5DEV, and I replaced the Cydia from Redsn0w for 4.0 Beta 4, and added the firmware to the supported firmwares for cydia, and created a custom IPSW file. Installed it, and fired up cydia and added http://apt.saurik.com/cydia-3.7 as the repo.

      The jailbreak worked, and I was able to install lots of things. seems Mobile substrate doesn't work on it, so things like sbsettings didn't work.

      I have my UUID registered, so there is nothing wrong with me doing this, apart from Apples dislike of jailbreaking

      As it sits, it is nowhere near prime time.. Unless there is a Mobile Substrate, and other things already made, and not released to the public, it would probably be best to stay at 3.1.x for a while after the real 4.0 is out. It was fun to play with.

      All the crazyness about not getting this out there because it could hurt the community like what was said on twitter is silly. This isn't any different than the Redsnow for the 3g. It also doesn't give anything away to apple for them to plug the hole, as it uses the existing exploits.

      In fact, it might even help the community, so they can test their apps on a 3gs, and not just a 3g. Especially if they only have a 3gs.

      This is in no way ready for general release and should not be used by anyone who values their phone.

      If any developer needs the JB they can get it but will be warned of the risks.

      KaatjeNL

      Any developers who need the jb for 3gs please email musclenerd and cc me. dm for our addresses. this is per musclenerd
      It is not released to the public for a reason.
