  • blacksn0w coming soon! Will unlock 05.11.07!



    geohot has come through once again for the iPhone community. Earlier this morning he posted a video of blacksn0w:

    blacksn0w will unlock both the 3GS and 3G iPhones running 05.11.07 to use on any gsm carrier. blacksn0w will be bundled into a new blackra1n that will be available on November 4th. So if you accidentally updated or restored to 3.1.2 and lost your unlock, you are in luck!

    And of course you can find detailed instructions here on MMi on how to do it when the new blackra1n and blacksn0w are released!

    Enjoy!

      This is my first JB attempt and I am on ATT with 3gs.
      Model is MC135LL <-- heard before "C" was a problem
      Modem Firmware 05.11.07

      I don't want to have to tether everytime I reboot just to restart my phone and I want to be able to set everything back to factory when time comes.

      I do not think I need to unlock, right?

      My main desire is for tethering for internet access for my laptop from time to time.

      Last Q... can I do that tethering from Ubuntu?

      Thanx for help!!!

      So this app will do both UNLOCK and Jailbreak in a single application ?
      This is what you both are looking for:

      Good luck and enjoy using your phone again..

      for those with WIFI problems - do the network reset

      settings -> general -> reset -> reset network settings

      this solved my problems on my 3gs..

      my upgrade path is this...

      3.1 OOB -> 3.1.2 PWNAGE -> blackrain -> blacksnow -> restore/sync -> wifi problems -> network reset.

      hope this helps.

      Thanx!

      I will try tonight!

      But I see this in the instructions...
      "For those with a new iPhone 3GS (updated Bootrom), BlackRa1n only supports a tethered jailbreak. This means that once jailbroken you should not let your battery die. If it does die you will need to reconnect it to the computer and use BlackRa1n to boot it."

      So, has that been overcome? Or am I creating a problem for myself by JBing?

      Thanx for the replies!

      ...and....
      If I am on ATT and plan to stay, I do not need to use Sn0w, right? No need to unlock?

      Or must I unlock to do tethering and to use cydia apps?

      Thanx!

      Then you probably don't have the new iboot and you won't have to worry about that jailbreaking problem. And no need to use any sn0w software if you don't need to unlock since you're on ATT

      Everything seems to have worked GREAT!

      Although MiFi tethering through Rock leaves a blue header on every screen that says I am still tethering... even though I turned it off!

      This is all great folks! Thanx for the help.

      BTW, if things go wrong how do I get back to factory?
      Also, what should I NOT do?... Like, I noticed iTunes wants to update again. Should I never do those things any more? or do them a certain way?

      THIS IS GREAT!

      Thanx!

      Things seems to go wrong alot and pretty often if you go around with jailbreak. If the phone messes up (white apple SOD). You can always restore back to 3.1.2 custom or official. But DON'T go any further. Well actually best stay away from any official firmware at all. I learned my lesson the hard way. Also make sure you have a ECID for 3.1 with Cydia. In case you want to clean install with a official firmware and then blackra1n it. Since Apple is probably not going to let you restore to 3.1 with the next update.

      Best is... Don't update anything official Apple throughs at you.

      You should not update your FW beyond 3.12 but carrier updates are fine - MiWi is now not necessary as you can use the inbuilt tethering just by installing an ipcc that supports it - although if you do install a custom ipcc then you should avoid carrier updates as well.
      The number of people that have problems with JB is miniscule compared to the numbers using it.

      BlackSn0w is only for 3G/3GS not the 2G
      For the 2G you need BootNeuter

      I'm so happy, after 1 month using a crappy phone and my iPhone as an iPod, I was just jailbreaking a friends' brand new iPhone with 3.1.2 (05.07.11) and I saw Blacksnow in the options I installed it and after that I saw the T----- yeah!

      visit blackweather for more

      Thanks so ******* much GEOHOT!

      Working well. No obvious side-effects.
      Although I have not used any new features, either.

      I did it so I could get internet through MiFi for me and a co-worker, when the need arises. I tested it once and it worked but wouldn't shut off!

      I rebooted the iPhone and it was off so that is the only hiccup I have seen.

      Are there things I should be loading for better productivity now that it is JBen?

      Here's an update that may or may not help people - or wondering 'will it work'???

      -original iphone is OOB 3.1/AT&T
      -PWNAGE -> 3.1.2
      -Blackrain/snow
      -use tmob / non 3g mode

      so i recently am on a trip to TOKYO, and was wondering 'will it work in 3G?' - I know there's no real reason for it NOT to, but you never know right???

      so anyway turned on the 3G and didn't get anything at first..... but as I rebooted the device - I was able to get the local carriers DOCOMO and SOFTBANK.

      WiFi was a bit fussy too, so i did the 'reset network settings' and all was good.

      (gonna try to steal a SIM off one of the local guys to see if it will work)
