by Hamza Tariq - on Apr 22nd 2012 - 3 Comments

So far, the iPhone unlock are one of the biggest problems and pain for the iPhone users, and as well as for the iPhone baseband hackers who work hard in discovering the exploits and baseband tricks to bring unlock on the new and older iPhone devices. The iPhone 4S is already completely unlocked with hardware unlock, but the iPhone 4 is still locked on some baseband due to negligence of hackers, and focus on new-generation devices.

It is reported that someone in the community has just discovered another exploit in the jailbroken iPhone devices that allow users to unlock their iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S using a SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) package. It appears that the tweak will work like an Ultrasn0w to unlock the devices, and the current highlighted method is also verified from the iPhone DevTeam’s key member MuscleNerd. The MuscleNerd has commented on his profile that he is able to Unlock iPhone 4S using SAM, and successfully able to run it on T-Mobile’s network.

Undoubtedly, it is really good news for the iPhone users who was struggling with a locked iPhone baseband, especially the iPhone 4 “04.11.08” baseband users. The iOS iPhone hacking community is pretty active on the new iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S unlock to exploit, as it allows users to unlock iPhone devices using an existence jailbreak tweak, and allows to spoof the iTunes network completely and make it to think that you are using a legit device, and as well as the exploit work as on iOS 5.1 but tethered only, as the iOS 5.1 is the only tethered jailbreak.

Unlock iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S Using SAM

Step 1: Step one: Install Sam Bingner’s SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) package. I recommend that you get it from repo.bingner.com since older versions have a different interface and may not work for this purpose.

Step 2: Enter SAM by either going through the settings menu or find the SAMPrefs icon on your springboard. You will need to have the SIM card you intend to use in your phone.

Step 3: Go to utilities and select “De-Activate iPhone”, your ActivationState under “More Information” should now be “Unactivated”

Step 4: With SAM enabled, choose “By Country and Carrier” in “Method”; find your carrier, for some carriers operating more than one Carrier ID you may need to select “SIM ID”; if you pick the wrong one this won’t work.

Step 5: Go to More Information”, copy or write down the IMSI in “SAM Details”, then tap “Spoof Real SIM to SAM”.

Step 6: Go back to the main SAM screen and change your “Method” to manual. Paste or enter the IMSI string we saved in Step 5.

Step 7: Connect your iPhone to your computer and allow iTunes to activate it, double click “Phone Number” parameter at the main device screen and make sure that the ICCID matches that of your SIM card. If not you need to start over from Step 1.

Step 8: Unplug your phone, close iTunes.

Step 9: Disable SAM. The source article says to uninstall SAM and delete your lockdownd profiles; it’s unnecessary.

Step 10: Connect your phone to iTunes again, you should get an error saying that your phone cannot be activated. This is normal. Just close iTunes and open it again.

Step 11: You should see signal bars in a short time, congratulations.

Step 12: Push notifications may stop working after this procedure but can be easily restored by “clear push” utility in SAM followed by connecting to iTunes.

The SAM package can be downloaded by adding the following source to Cydia:repo.bingner.com

 

Note:  According to the iPhone unlock trick, you can only use the SIM on your iPhone and can switch between the original SIM, which you used at the time of unlock your iPhone. It is an iPhone unlock trick, but still comes with some sort of limitations.

Jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2 With Redsn0w 0.9.10b7

by Hamza Tariq - on Apr 21st 2012 - No Comments

Sometime ago, the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak was released in the public for the iOS 5.0.1, but the tool was releases by the Chronic Dev-Team aka DreamTeam, and the iPhone-DevTeam helped them in testing and completely over-rooting the devices with exploits, but after a couple of months. The iPhone DevTeam has just released an update to its Redsn0w jailbreak tool with the couple of new features and the support for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S Untethered Jailbreak On iOS 5.0.1. However, they already released the initial tool in public, but if you remember that was the CLI version of the jailbreak tool that simply loads the whole Corona and other exploits on iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.

Redsn0w 0.9.10b7 is just released in the public by iPhone DevTeam with a support to jailbreak the iPhone 4S , iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1, with an extra ability to save the SHSH blobs and other APTickets while patching the kernels for the Corona 5.0.1 jailbreak exploit. The new Redsn0w features don’t end here, as they now carry more features such as automatically acquiring blobs, and stitch them while creating custom IPSW. The acquired SHSH blobs will be also uploaded to Cydia Servers for the future usage.

 

Jailbreak iPhone 4S / iPad 2 With Redsn0w

It is surely a great update for the users with old-generation devices, and as well as for the new-generation devices, especially makes the jailbreak process more user-friendly and less confusing for the beginner users who are new to the jailbreak scene with Redsn0w. I guess most of the current iOS users are not aware of the PwnageTool aka stone age tool, which requires more details from third-party developers for jailbreaking a single iOS device. However, now we have new tools like the Redsn0w with updated UI, and options for the users. The Redsn0w 0.9.10b7 is available to download for both Windows & Mac OS, and can easily jailbreak your device without updating its firmware version.

On the other hand, the Chronic DevTeam member, Pod2g claims on the Twitter that he has finally discovered the complete exploits to make another untethered jailbreak for an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices on the latest released iOS 5.1. The iOS 5.1 was released along with the new iPad, and the new iPad appears to be similar to iPad 2 in processor level, and the iPhone hackers claimed that the device could be also the jailbreak with the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S level exploits. The new Pod2g exploit is said to be work on all current and next-generation devices on the iOS 5.1 with maximum compatibility over their processors.

Siri Can Now Speak Hindi With A Little Help Of New Hack

by Hamza Tariq - on Apr 11th 2012 - 1 Comment

Apple has recently seeded the new iOS 5.1 firmware version in the public, along with the announcement of the iPad 3 in public. The update includes the number of new features, security patches, new challenges for the developers, and a complete new support for the Japanese in Siri for the iPhone 4S users. With the iOS 5.1, Apple’s intelligent virtual assistant learned a new language to speak all over the world with similar ancient users.  But what if Siri doesn’t currently support your language? No problem, there is already a developer out there with having a successful prototype in its hand running with a Hindi language, which is currently not supported by Apple’s official Siri service.

The project is initialized by iOS developer Kunal Kaul, who claims to develop a Siri Project that enables it to speak a Hindi language with the help of its own managed Siri Proxy server. He has demoed a video showing up its iPhone 4S Siri able to speak Hindi with a little help of its own configured Siri Proxy server integrated with Google Translate API, which is capable of translating English into Hindi.

iPhone 4S Siri Speaks Hindi

However, the process of using a proxy server to enhance the Siri’s capabilities has been a pretty popular these days, as a little program and user can easily configure its own proxy server on local network, and with a little how now of programming can enable different things in the Siri, like controlling lights, TV and other appliances. The developer behind the Hindi Speaking project of Siri, Kunal Kaul, has commented that there is still “lots of work to be done” before launching the feature in public.
