  • Blacksn0w for 3.1.3 3G/3GS with 05.11.07

    Well folks, the news has begun to spread about a new package for Blacksn0w and 3.1.3 on the 3G/3GS with baseband 05.11.07. This supposed new Blacksn0w package is put together by a user going by msft.guy.

    Here is a link to msft.guy's blog where he discusses the current issues as to why Blacksn0w wont work with 3.1.3.

    This tip comes in from a good friend (PushFix.info) who has gone ahead and packaged it together and gave it a shot on his iPhone 3GS. Here's what he had to say:

    Basically I have made two packages, both require 05.11.07 baseband:

    #1 Blacksn0w RC2 for 3.1.3 (Pwnagetool upgraded)

    msft.guy found the string that needed changing that makes blacksn0w work under 3.1.3. This is impressive in it's own right, but he also fixed a bug in Geohot's code that he identified. Although he didn't seem to know it, that bug was the cause of all the WiFi problems with blacksn0w (almost exclusively with the 3GS). By that I mean the issue where your phone works on one boot, but the next boot, your WiFi doesn't work and you have to reset network settings to get it to work. This is a great find and I don't even think he recognized what he fixed.

    #2 Blacksn0w RC2 for 3.1.2

    So, I applied that fix to regular old blacksn0w RC1 for 3.1.2 and again, it keeps the WiFi from getting broken. I have called it blacksn0w RC2. I have a 3GS that had constant WiFi problems with blacksn0w under 3.1.2. With this patched version of Geohot's unlock, WiFi works perfectly. I have powered off and rebooted more than 10 times and it has worked every single time now.
    It appears that msfit.guy has no intention of publicly releasing the fix and GeoHot is nowhere to be found to comment on the issue.

    The packages put together by PushFix.info have been tested by a handful of people and both appear to work flawlessly at this point.

    There are some issues with making this public as of right now, for example, if you are faking your OS version to be 3.1.3 and you install the 3.1.3 version of blacksn0w RC2 with 3.1.2 CommCenter, you will cause problems! Your cell and WiFi could be unresponsive until you either uninstalled the package again via Cydia or restored the phone.

    Besides the technical issues of current app compatibility, we feel it is appropriate to wait for GeoHot and msft.guy to respond and let us know their intentions.

    Once this package is made available, we will let you know.


    *Note: What we are referring to is a package put together by PushFix.info that contains msft.guy's work and geohot's blacksn0w.

      I'm still awaiting on an untethered for 3GS, it's been a while now and I don't think they even care that the latest iPhone isn't jailbroken

      Either the article is incorrect or all of the above comments did not understand that this new discover does not help at all people that is stuck on 3.1.3
      The article says baseband 05.11.07...Who ever "accident" upgrade to 3.1.3 is on baseband 05.12.07 which does not resolve this JB/Unluck issue.
      Be more careful when ready people!

      if this is for the old BB 05.11.07 then this is useless as most of us need a JB with the new BB 5.12.01. so is the title wrong or is this the case?

      I don't get the relevance. For anyone that is on 3.1.3 with baseband 5.11.07 you are by default unlocked ad jailbroken b/c you can only achieve this with a custom firmware. How does this find benefit anyone?

      Lucky for me, I have an EXTRA 3G that I was able to jailbreak even though it's on the 3.1.3 Firmware with the 5.12.07 BB. Glad the serial starts with MB :P

      For a second I thought a jailbreak was here! I want to jailbreak my 3GS, I hate the stock UI
      Why did I upgrade my 3GS!!
      I have 3.1 or 3.0.1 SHSH on file in Cydia, can I downgrade and then rejailbreak? Not bothered about unlock.

      there is no new exploit it's just a way to get blackra1n to jailbreak 3.1.3 with 05.11.07 as far as I can tell
