Can anyone please confirm if this works on iOS 5 or not?

So far i have created a custom ipsw with pwnagetool. then i have created ssh ramdisk.i uploaded ibss via tethredboot. then when i upload kernel cache and ssh ramdisk via itunnel it just says waiting for device. i personally think the problem is with itunnel. i am no newb in ios jailbreaking i have been around since the 1.x days, and i have also performed this ssh ramdisk method countless times. but with ios5 that is different. any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
i have found some info regarding ios5 i will try when i get home README.txt - iphone-dataprotection - iphone data protection tools - Google Project Hosting

Hi Mes, and anyone else
I have a problem with my iPhone 4 (GSM) - just exactly what is described on this threat
i manage to create the necessary ssh file for 4.2.1 and also for 4.3.3
run tetheredboot.exe and it looks to be going ok (see below)
Start iDevice Emergency SSH Boot
ERROR: The process "iTunesHelper.exe" not found.
Waiting for device to enter DFU mode
Found device in DFU mode

Uploading ramdisk 4-2-1\038-0032-002.dmg.ssh to device
Uploading 4-2-1\kernelcache.release.n90 to device
but when i execute : itunnel_mux.exe --iport 22
i get the following message
[INFO] Waiting for new TCP connection on port 22
[INFO] Waiting for device...
And that's it, any one got an idea what is wrong?
Appreciate your help!
(BTW: i am using Windows 7 with sp1, and i am executing all the above with elevated access, and the firewall has been totally disabled!)
itunnel also tested under OSX with the same result!
BTW: I would like to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

First of all would like to thank Mes and MsftGuy for all their hard work, as well as all the others that worked on this. I am trying to fix my iphone 4, 1.59. I do not know exactly which version of ios anywhere between 4.3.1 and 4.3.3, so far I have done everything in parallel for each possible firmware version. I am stuck at apple logo, can enter and exit dfu with tiny umbrella and have access to mac and pc for a short while. I am leaving tomorrow and would like to get this done tonight if at all possible, I can stay up late if I have to. I thank everybody in adavance and am greatful for any guidance anybody could offer.
Is there a way to determine firmware version without access to ios? For example from the apple logo, through a computer?.
Which keys do I copy[step3] (root filesystem [no IV, only VFDecrypt Key, all others Key + IV], update ramdisk [sais it is not encrypted, no key and no IV], restore ramdisk [sais it is not encrypted, no key and no IV], applelogo, batterycharging0... recoverymode)
How do i know which kernelcache.release to use for a different firmware?
Where/how is ssh inclusion determined in the building of the ramdisk? Is it when you build the custom firmware?

Hi, I used your post to create an article translated to our language with some additions, I hope it's ok for you
The article is here http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=300173
I used a link to your article saying it's your work

i have been reading your post about recovering data from an iphone in dfu mode. I have an iphone 3gs with the 4.2.1 firmware. it's jb. i went and downloaded the required programs that you had listed. i found a custom ipsw from iphone rock website for my phone. i'm not sure if i can use this one though because it's not one of the ones you listed. i also went to find the vfdecrypt keys and became confused as to where they are specifically on that site. are the keys you have in your photo of the RecoveryRamdiskBuilder the ones I would use? I extracted everything except the custom ipsw to a folder on my desktop. i named the folder "dfu". After that i went and extracted the four files you listed from the ipsw. i also placed them in the "dfu" folder. When i load the ramdisk builder and load the 038-0082-001.dmg; it creates 2 files after that. yet neither one of them are named 018-0082-001.dmg.ssh. what am I doing wrong? I am running windows vista for my operating system. I have also tried running the tethered boot in cmd.exe (as admin) and it always stops at waiting 2 seconds for device to pop up. then it stops the process. also when you say to load the three files after the tethered boot; how do i do that? i hope i hear back from you. also i am sorry if i come off to you as someone who is clueless. i just have never had to get this far into a phone before. everyone i have spoken to gives me the "it can't be done!!" answer. hope to get a reply back.

i have an iphone 4 with 4.3.1 on a windows laptop, can someone please explain to me requirement 2? im going through the process and on step 2 im assuming my file names will be slightly different due to the 4.3.1. i have 2 choices for file d to put into the new folder but im unsure which one. one is 609,xxx KB and one is only 29,xxx kb. which one do I use? or am i supposed to make a custom or something?
01-30-2012, 08:29 PM #190
still waiting if anyone can help me out please...
01-30-2012, 08:36 PM #191DFU help!!!
i found this alternative to some of the steps in getting the data back. im in the same boat you are so you aren't alone!!! i've emailed a few people and hoopefully i get a reply soon. Mostly iPhone hacking: Automatic SSH ramdisk creation and loading. as soon i get some information on recovering the data i'll pass it on to you. it's frustrating me beyond belief trying to figure out the right steps to do it. im somewhat knowledgeable as far as computers and other things like modding my iphone but this has me stumped. if you need help i'll try my best to help you.
don't give up!!!!!

has anybody got this working for 4.3.3? I see that somebody posted they used the 4.2.1 files for 4.3.3 and it worked. But i've been trying and nothing.
i got to part 6, but no progress bar, just a white screen.
02-03-2012, 11:10 AM #199DFU help!!!
i did get mine to work with the 4.2.1. firmware. im not sure if it would work for you but it's worth a shot. i am making a tutorial on it for the 4.2.1. firmware so you would have to change the firmware at least. look for it either tonight or saturday night. im posting photos of it also to make it easier for those who are confused. i figured it out the hard way i guess but it will be easier for others if photos were included.
02-04-2012, 03:54 PM #200
so that was a yes to 4.3.3 working?
