  • iPhone OS 4.0 Jailbreak is Released

    One week from the day Apple announced OS 4.0, the iPhone Dev Team releases a jailbreak. This jailbreak is for developers to get ahead start on updating their apps for 4.0.

    Details from: redsn0w 0.9.5 BETA [iPhone Dev Team]

    This is a beta release of redsn0w targeted at developers of jailbroken apps.

    Please not that this beta is not meant for the average end-user. There are many things “broken” with jailbroken apps in the 4.0beta1 environment right now, and this beta redsn0w allows the developers behind those jailbroken apps to fix their software before the general public gets iphoneOS 4.0.

    Because it's meant for JB app developers, this beta redsn0w does not perform hactivation. You'll need a properly-registered developer UDID with Apple to get past the activation screen. For similar reasons, there is no Windows version of this beta redsn0w (since apps are developed on MacOSX). Please don't pirate Apple software.

    Anyone other than developers of jailbroken apps porting their software to 4.0beta1 should still be using our previously-released redsn0ws for 3.0 through 3.1.3
    This BETA release supports:
    • iPhone 3G only (for now)
    • Mac OSX only (for now)
    • the 4.0beta1 FW only (for now)

    YOU SHOULD STAY CLEAR OF THIS BETA SOFTWARE IF YOU RELY ON A CARRIER UNLOCK. That's because the beta redsn0w works only if your device has already been upgraded to the stock 4.0beta IPSW from Apple, which contains a baseband update. If you installed that IPSW, you've already lost the carrier unlock until the next planned release of ultrasn0w and blacksn0w.

    Multitasking on your 3G

    Once you are jailbroken, navigate to /System/Library/CoreService/SpringBoard.app/N82AP.plist

    Open the plist and change the multitasking key to = True

    if the multitasking key is not there, add it

      Someone who is JB'd on the 4.0 beta, should post a list of compatible apps. That person may be me if I can find time to upgrade next weekend.

      Realize it. Stop whining.

      We're too close to the release of the new iPhone OS 4.0. Less than 2 months away.

      Whatever your opinions are about revealing exploits immediately or waiting for large upcoming software updates, you bet your *** that Dev-Team and Geohot won't waste an untethered exploit (that works on all iDevices; all iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) on something as useless as fw 3.1.3!

      If you you want be in the jailbreak-game, you'll have to be patient and wait. Only 2 months away.

      ummm....u are 100 percent wrong on this...it will come...just not as fast as people want it to be

      I personally think that a 3.1.3 3SG with the new bootrom and modem baseband can NOT be jailbroken or unlocked. I have yet to see any proof of this and only a lot of fake videos. If your in the market for a new phone and don't need an unlock now is the time to buy because I see some good prices on eBay for new IPhones and I myself have mine on there because I am impatient and can't wait for the 4.0. It does suck because I've paid for some apps in cydia but oh well at least with the android you don't have to worry about all this.

      I jailbreaked my iPhone 3G and i lost all my Stock apps except the Voice Memos.app . every thing else just vanished after cydia did that reorganizing things. even the Phone.app

      I used the redsnow 0.9.5b2 and jailbreaked smoothly , but after i installed SBsettings and restarted my iPhone , the Connect to iTunes screen showed up. Had to restore again

      Links on front page updated
      I can verify that this update fixed my problem with having no cellular data works great now!

      "Ummmm". I am absolutely 100 % right on this. And you should be too.

      There won't be any jailbreak released for new 3.1.3 devices before iPhone OS 4.0 is made public. Ever. EVER.


      However, most certainly there will be jailbreak solutions released when iPhone OS 4.0 is made public. Then you could, theoretically, jailbreak your 3.1.3 device. Or just upgrade to OS 4.0 and jailbreak that instead.

      C'mon. Just forget 3.1.3 and prepare for 4.0.

      Apologies Stealth. I'm still new to this forum posting. Spamming was not my initial intent. Since I work for club FED I can take on the spot corrections pretty well. I'll keep it between the lines bro.

      I call the ********-o-meter. How stupid are you?

      It's roughly two months until iPhone OS 4.0 goes public. I bet my ******* right hand there won't be any 3.1.3 jailbreak released for new 3GS:es or new ipt3g:s before that.

      When iPhone OS 4.0 goes public, sure, there'll probably be some kind of multi-solution á la Blackra1n or Pwnage Tool that works on multiple versions and devices.

      But don't count on anything specifically targeted at 3.1.3 before 4.0 is out.

      Don't be stupid.
