Redsn0w 0.9.9b9d Released To Fix Untethered Jailbreak On iPhone 3GS (Old Bootrom)

by Daudi - on Dec 24th 2011 - No Comments

Few days back the Dev-Team released an update to their tool called Redsn0w with some major improvement made and they added the support for custom IPSW for windows. The previous seemed to have some problems due to which they released another update with 0.9.9bc which tended to fix some issues with Redsn0w 0.9.9b.  The previous version got some launch errors due to which they released this new update of 0.9.9c.

Redsn0w 0.9.9b9d Untethered Jailbreak

The previous version of Redsn0w 0.9.9c might have fixed the Windows issue but it got some other issues which were face by 3GS users on Old Bootrom. This is the fix for old bootrom 3GS users only.

Update #17d: iPhone3GS owners in our comments section below noticed a problem with the untethered jailbreak available for the old-bootrom 3GS. We’ve corrected that problem in 0.9.9b9d. If you have an old-bootrom 3GS and have already used last night’s redsn0w on it, you can re-run it again without losing anything. Just use this new version, go to Extras->IPSW and manually select the 5.0.1 IPSW, then go back and Jailbreak it again (but you can uncheck Cydia because it’s already installed).

This is still a tethered jailbreak for all except old-bootrom 3GS users.

If you own an old bootrom iPhone 3GS and are already Jailbroken previously, You only need to uncheck Cydia and run the Jailbreak again to get Untethered on iPhone 3GS (Old Bootrom).

You can download Redsn0w 0.9.9b9c for:

This update was for iPhone 3GS (old Bootrom) users so far.

Now for the people owning iPhone 4 and below idevices should get ready for the prime time. The Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 4 users and below is ready. The only wait is for Prime Time. The prime can be 25th of December. So stay tuned with us.

For people owning A5 iDevices are not far away from the jailbreak. The work is in progress. Pod2g is working hard to work on the A5 iDevices.

Get Official SIRI On Your iPhone 4, 3GS, And iPod 4 (How To)

by Daudi - on Nov 23rd 2011 - No Comments

This a great news and a post for those who were waiting for SIRI to come on iPhone 4 and below. This is not any official release by Hackers who ported SIRI to the iPhone 4 but this is the perfect port of SIRI done on iPhone 4 by Iris Dev Team. The Iris Dev Team is made of some French Developers who ported SIRI to older iDevices. The compatibility so far is for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod 4.

This is a perfect port of SIRI and no words have been said on the activation of SIRI. This means that you can get SIRI on your iDevice but you cannot connect to Apple’s server. The activation of SIRI is in progress and it said to be released soon.

After reading the above statement, follow the steps below:

Step#1:

  1. Your iDevice must be on iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1
  2. The Device must be Jailbroken
  3. You must have some knowledge about SSH or how to use iFunbox (WINDOWS) or Cyber Duck for (MAC)

If you are on the above stated things, so you can proceed further.

Step#2:

Download iFunbox or Cybder Duck on your PC or MAC. Then install iFile from Cydia.

Step#3:

After you have downloaded the above files, now download the original SIRI file from here.

Step#4:

Once you are done with Downloading, now get ready for some real work. Before you proceed, make sure that you are near any PC or MAC.

Now open iFunbox or CyberDuck and connect your iDevice. Once the iDevice is connected, it will show you a menu like this:

Now navigate to Raw File System

Ste#5:

When you are in Raw File system you will see the above folders. Now navigate to VAR folder or stay on the Root. All you have to do is place the Downloaded file in one of the locations. We would suggest you to place the file on the ROOT.

Step#6:

Now go into your iPhone and open iFile. Once iFile is opened find the file you putted from iFunbox into iPhone.

Like we have saved the file in VAR. We would reccomend you to save the file on Root. It would be easy to find.

Step#7:

Press and hold the file. Now it will give you some options. From all of those select installer and give your iPhone a minute or so to install the file on your iPhone. Once the installation is done, Done will appear on your upper left corner in blue,. Press that and you are not done yet.

Step#8:

The last step is to boot tethered. When the iPhone boots up. Voila! you are done now and you will have SIRI on your iPhone 4.

To sue SIRI, go into Settings and it will be there.

Now simply go into SIRI and turn it on and enjoy the demo of SIRI.

Once again SIRI wont work properly because it is not yet activated. Means that is not yet connected to Apple’s server, So SIRI will say that it is having trouble while connecting to the network.

Special thanks to Tottiz for helping us in making the tutorial possible.

Known Issues:

Till now an issues with Wi-Fi has been found by the user. After installing SIRI he couldn’t connect to WIFI and couldn’t use the Keyboard for the WIFI password. So try this method at you own risk.

This method was found here.

AT&T has reportedly raised the price of subsidized Apple’s cheapest iPhone from free to $0.99. Apple has made its iPhone 3GS for free on the launch of iPhone 4S. Apple deals with its carrier partners to sell its iPhone 3GS for free with two-year contract. In October, while announcing the iPhone 4S Apple has clearly mentioned in the press releases that iPhone 3GS 8GB on carrier contract would be available for free.

AT&T CEO also mentions in his notes to investors that besides the iPhone 4S successful launch, the iPhone 3GS tremendous demand getting them a large number of customers around the nation and the demand of iPhone 3GS brings them newer subscriber than any other device available on their desk.

It’s not clear at the time, why AT&T rise the price of a fully free subsidized iPhone to $0.99, but still we think is affordable price for the Apple’s era rocking iPhone 3GS, which also supports that latest iOS updates and iMessages. iPhone 3GS only offered free for a month and a half on carrier contract, particularly given the fact that both Apple PR and AT&T Mobility’s CEO had specifically touted the free nature of the device. In response to a request for comment on the price increase, AT&T declined to offer a specific reason:
