  • 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.

    THIS IS NOT A NEW EXPLOIT! IT IS ESSENTIALLY AN PACKAGE PUT TOGETHER THAT UPDATES BLACKSN0W TO WORK WITH 3.1.3 on 05.11.07

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

      This will be good for people who have iphones that hung on a reboot after using blackra1n then had no choice but to put it into dfu or restore mode and upgrade to a custom 3.1.3 firmware to preserve the 5.11.0 baseband and their jailbreak. I have a friend who falls into this category and I'm glad I preserved his baseband instead of just doing a stock apple restore. Hopefully this will encourage geohot to put something together soon for the tethered 3gs' but I'm not holding my breath.

      They have no reason to release till 4.0. With the iPad almost here, and iPhone 4G to follow shortly after, I'm sure the dev's don't wanna show their cards yet. Think about it... Then they'd have to start all over.

      That's why I kept my 04.26.08 BB and I'm on 3.1.2. Stick with what works and use a little patience.

      I have 3.1 or 3.0.1 SHSH on file in Cydia, can I downgrade and then rejailbreak? Not bothered about unlock.

      I have a 3GS on 3.1.2 and when it just recently crashed, i downgraded back to 3.1.2 again instead of upgrading to 3.1.3. After the restore was complete i just ran blackra1n again and everything was fine... other than i lost all of the data i previously stored on it, as i don't ever use itunes. I had 3.1, 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 SHSH on file in Cydia. I reccon it might be possible to go back, only i'm not too sure if you need to be already jailbroken or not?? I'd say give it a shot though and let me know. First dl a clean copy of 3.1 or 3.0.1 firmware to your pc. You need to edit your host file to connect to Saurik's server instead of Apples, to sign the 3.x.x? firmware you wish to use, when you restore. You can do that by following this guide here...

      Hope this helps :-s

      That's not entirely true. Yes, if you're on 3.1.3 with 5.11.07 you are already jailbroken, but not unlocked. Blacksn0w hasn't worked on 3.1.3 until now.

      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
      bang on! no new exploit, just an update to blacksn0w essentially that allows it to work with 3.1.3.

      you need to downgrade to 3.1.2 to JB , THE YOU CAN JB 3.1.3 with Pwnage. to exploit the iphone you need to downgrade first. then you can upgrade to custom ipsw. If you have ssh on file through cydia. should be pretty easy. you need to alter you mac or pc s host file first. Its not hard search for one of many tutorials

      This article needs to be more clear for the nubs. Why was this not formatted with the usual 12-bullet list of disclaimers?

      Sounds like we had some of these guys upgrading thinking this was a new jailbreak. To clarify:

      THIS IS NOT A JAILBREAK FOR 3.1.3!
      This is simply a way to get a CARRIER UNLOCK working on the new 05.11.07 baseband if you are already somehow jailbroken on 3.1.3 with an updated baseband.

      This is only for those who were dumb enough to update, and it's still retarded to update at all. There is no benefit.

      I agree. It's not always an easy thing to convey to another person that after their beloved iphone has been broken free of apples constraints, that not only do you get to enjoy the benefits of all of the modifications, you also need to take heed to apples continuous attempts to control what they consider "theirs".... even though you bought it, which makes it your's and you should be able to do whatever you want with what you have purchased. I have jailbroken multiple iPhones for friends, and i can't help but seem like a broken record every time i do so in saying "NEVER UPDATE", "NEVER UPDATE","NEVER UPDATE", until you have read on Cydia/Saurik's homepage in the section in reference "Upgrading to 3.x.x? Read this" says it's o.k, and how to do so if you wish.

      Please people, remember this! What has Apple actually given to us in these updates??? Nothing but attempts to keep us from releasing "OUR" phones to it's true potential. What have they given us since 3.1? Cut copy & paste, Landscape keyboard, MMS, which most of us have had for about a year before this release because of jailbreaking.

      NEVER UPDATE, NEVER UPDATE, NEVER UPDATE..........

      nobody needs to jailbreak at 3.1.3 unless you accidently updated. no need.

      correction to my terminology: this is an unlock/update. NOT a jailbreak

      Agreed! Just because Apple comes up with an update doesn't mean you should automatically update. Especially if you are jailbroken or unlocked. Do the research first.

      BlackSn0w does not work with 3.13
      Anyone stupid enough to use Sn0wBreeze while relying on BlackSn0w has not been able to unlock.

      The fix does also make it even more likely that 3.13 was only released to stop JB/unlocking - it's a very poor effort by Apple as msftguy says:
      Apple too lazy to break things properly
