  • 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.

      It's not even a matter of people doing it "right" or "wrong", it is the fact that a lot of people acquired an iPhone after a certain time or purchased it off of someone with a AT&T contract who does not pay attention to the JB community.

      I personally have not came across many that are stuck on 05.11.07.

      Thats because we are not "stuck" on 5.11.07. We're there by choice, an waiting for an unlock if it becomes available.
      Holl0 is correct in the fact that most that are on 5.12.01 did not research anything. They just wanted "the latest and greatest". How many posts are here every day asking the same questions that have been asked have a thousand times? what was the old saying, look before you leap. Well read before you upgrade and you wont be "stuck".

      ummm ^^^yea what he said ^^^ seams pointless to me. I mean come on if you were smart enough to preserve your baseband to 5.11.07 by upgrading with a custom ipsw then you should be smart enough to realize you can downgrade to 3.1.2 with a custom ipsw as well. Why is there a fix for something that is unnecessary to begin with?

      This also fixes the WiFi bug that countless users have been experiencing.

      Sheesh. Read before you post crap, please.

      Ok I read it and yet again its pointless! The wifi fix Blacksn0w RC2 for 3.1.2 has been on cydia for a while. That is not what I was addressing. I was addressing Blacksn0w RC2 for 3.1.3 (Pwnagetool upgraded). If you would have read the entire thread that is what everyone is replying to. Not the wifi fix that is completely different release and nothing more than an accidental byproduct of trying to release a pointless update. Sheesh. Read before you post crap, please.

      harrison 0550. Its never pointless. Just because it doesnt benefit you. There are those out there that dont know how, or get 1600 errors when downgrading to 3.1.2.
      At least the guy did something that will benefit some. You dont have to agree with it, but dont knock it. That same guy might decide next time not ot do anything because someone like you doesnt understand the reason behind it.

      yes its a very good release. there are number of people stuck in recovery mode in firmware 3.12. they can safely now upgrade to custom firmware 3.1.3 keeping there baseband at 5.11.07 then unlock it with this tool. thanks for the release.

      It is not pointless you understand anything about jailbreaking. There are those who were unable to downgrade back to 3.1.2 and are stuck on 3.1.3 but did use a custom fw to upgrade to 3.1.3 to preserve their baseband. And as most know blacksn0w DOES NOT work with 3.1.3 even if you have baseband 5.11. So this find helps those that are in that situation. It's for anyone who has 3.1.3 with 5.11 baseband which there are many. And even it is a byproduct the find can still help the many. So it's not pointless just because you find no use of it.

      Can someone tell me WHERE I can get this custom 3.1.3 firmware that keeps your bb at 5.11.07, so I can use this unlock?
      Or perhaps a 3.1.2 that will work with iTunes??

      I have a 3G that still had 3.0.1 on it, and I used the "clear media and settings" function in the settings app to clear the calendar, contacts, etc so I can SELL the phone.
      In doing so, the stupid POS put itself in the endless boot-loop of death. iTunes wont let me restore with anything but 3.1.3, which I know better than to do.

      I need to restore to anything 3.0.1 or newer and unlock... help!

      Hi, Pushfix,

      Don't know if you can see this post.

      This might not related to the WIFI fix. Cause when you have your
      Blacksn0w RC1 newly installed, it Probably make no problems to wifi. It only shows problem after several reboots, what's exactly caused that is unknown, maybe you set your cell network APN, maybe other debs installed. But it must have some relations for blacksn0w. Because when you delete it, all going fine.

      So your feeling of wifi fix may only because you just newly installed the blacksn0w, whether RC1 or RC2 is not the point.
      But this is only a guess, if you can prove it wrong, that's great!

      up at the top click on downloads and then under categories click on firmware and that's where they are!
