  • 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.

    YOU SHOULD STAY CLEAR OF THIS BETA SOFTWARE IF YOU RELY ON A CARRIER UNLOCK!

    Enjoy!



    EDIT:

    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

      I can't stand people calling 3.1.3 a minor or a stupid or insignificant and uninmportant update anymore. It's been like at least 3 or 4 months since it has been released and a lot of people are stuck on this firmware because they had their phones upgraded during repair of they bought them like that.

      well i'm just glad they are saving the exploits that have been found for 4.0 and ppl might hate the devs for not releasing for 3.1.3 but these guys do all this work for free all they get are donations that very few ppl actually give compared to how many ppl use it and make money off it on a global scale... just wish ppl would stop complaining about 3.1.3! yea sure i know it sucks and you might have bought it like that or gotten a replacement like that but the light at the end of the tunnel shines super bright for the world with the upcoming 4.0 OS so stop complaining and try waiting patiently no matter how many complain and how often they complain its not gonna make a jailbreak or unlock appear out of thin air everyone is tired of the clutter this brings to these great forums just complain in a email and send it to some1 who sympathizes like yourself

      Like my previous post said.. Why is god screwing me around. I bet someone told this before but I will repeat it. Lets take baby steps, let's jailbreak the other one's before moving onto something much bigger.

      I'm perfectly content right now...I'm not going to get excited about any release until I get my hands on the 4th Generation iPhone; then I'll be whining like a baby for the Jailbreak again; but for now...My gritting my teeth with my Unjailbroken 3GS on 3.1.3 that was forced upon me after a replacement was sent to me :-(

      Hey Kickerman , a thought just occured to me,if its an "old exploit" that has been JB , shouldn't that be in the 3.13 OS too ? You are not telling me they fixed it in 3.13 and have undone it in 4.0 ? So why can't all us people stuck on 3.13 have a JB too ?

      Any known vulns/exploits in the iPhone were taken care of with 3.1.3.
      The ones that exist in 4.0 are unknown to Apple and hopefully will stay that way until 4.0 official.

      Notice that this redsn0w is iPhone 3G ONLY. There are no 3G users stuck without a jailbreak on any firmware, and if they are then they have a bit of research to do...
      The people who are "stuck" are 3GS and ipt3G users, which need something new for almost every firmware apple releases...

      So these "old 4.0" exploits are one that were just never released before that I'm guessing will also work on previous OS versions ?

      No. They are ones that have been released before but apple can't patch because it's hardware.
