  • 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.

      You can jailbreak the old bootloader just fine on 3.1.3 3GS. Are you referring to the new bootloader?

      As shown in my "Device + Firmware" next to my forum name
      I have an MC model, from what i can findout, it can not be JB'd with any release yet.
      Also, apparently mine was made in the 43 week so could be either old/new bootloader. I would like to try f0recast to findout for sure, but alas any link i had found is broken/not working

      f0recast is lame. It just estimates based off your serial number. It doesn't do any definitive checks. You van check it without being jailbroken. Follow these instructions. How to check your iBoot version in Windows (or Mac) - Mac Forums

      05.12.01 will not be unlocked. It was only released to flush out exploits. Unless they don't change the BB for the next FW update the next unlock will be for the next FW.

      Why on earth would you want to 'upgrade' to 3.13? If you're on 3.12 just stay there!

      Well, the good thing is that under original blacksn0w, your phone might have been boot looped. If RC2 Final doesn't unlock it, at least the device still boots.

      I'm not sure what the problem may be. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to personally figure out why it's not working for individual users. It works for almost everyone and that's the best I can do right now.

      Ive here a 3GS with the sn0wbreeze custom 3.1.3 Firmware and of course the 5.11.07 ...but after ive installed the RC2 Final Version its been stuck at the unlockscreen and its slow as hell. Wireless Signal also lost.
      Seems to be buggy and did not work with every 3GS 5.11.07 .

      Any hints ..thanks

      I have a 3GS and it was 3.1.2 and jailbroken/unlocked then accidently updated to 3.1.3. I have no idea what baseband or even how to find that. Also I dont have a backup on cydia. So my question is, is there every going to be a jailbreak or unlock? Because I have read on some websites that there won't be one...Im going crazy!

      How do you accidentally upggrade??? There will we a jailbreak/unlock. They've already crashed the 5.12 baseband. Patience grasshopper. You'll have to wait until the next OS comes out.

      Great fix for the endless boot issue and wifi settings being greyed out after each reboot. But I'm still having the random signal drops WHEREVER i'm at. I can confirm this as I have a 3g unlocked using Ultrasn0w (BB 4.26.08), using identical Tmobile Sim Cards and being in an area where anyone with Tmobile gets FULL bars without any drops. Definitely a 5.11.07 issue whenever unlocked using Blacksn0w Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate the fix for the endless boot and wifi issues though, which has plagued my 3gs since I've purchased it last October. Definitely can't wait for the more stable (and less buggy) Dev Team unlock.

      I can't help but laugh at the same 3.1.3 jailbreak questions... Look people, if you are on 3.1.3 either by "accident"/mistake/unknown, or you bought it that way, it's very simple to understand. They will show the jailbreak to prove that it's possible to do so, they WILL NOT, however release it to the public until 4.0 is released, and I'm not talking about beta. They will not let Apple fill the holes used to gain access to our beloved jailbreak!!! Please, stop asking when it will be released. It will only be released AFTER everthing is available for sale to the public.

      Uhhh...your post doesn't make a whole lot of sense in this particular thread.
