  • 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.

      a hacker from Amsterdam by the name of Kaatje

      That makes it sound like people don't already know her.

      Judging by the way that some of the (presumably) male members say they want to have sex with her, it appears that some people don't know her.

      The Dev Team certainly do and I am proud to call her a friend.

      She has got as far as
      printf("Hello worldn");
      but knows a little bit about Macs.

      Hers is bigger than yours (disc space, I mean).

      I would have posted this news earlier ( I did mention it in another thread) but just assumed everyone new what she was doing!

      I think jailbreaking betas is a really stupid idea. Apple can fix all the holes before rollig out the GM version and you guys are kind of working or apple for free.

      So I read the whole thread an all I see is "zomg a girl on teh interwebz?!! I want teh secks!!!". Seriously you guys are pathetic. The topic is about jailbreaking and for all we know that chick is probably ugly and you will never see her anyway. Watching nerds getting horny just by that is funny.

      I don't think that anyone who knows Kaatje thinks she's stupid or ugly.

      But she is happily married (and her wife isn't ugly either).

      Apple can't patch what they don't know, it would be stupid of her to release what she has done to anyone except those she trusts, and like I say, she's not stupid.

      As She tweeted earlier:

      Beware of people claiming to have jb's for 4b4 3gs on here. Looking at some of the bundles, they are incomplete and will cause problems
