Dev-Team Blog – Close the stable door

pwnagetoolPwnageTool and QuickPwn updated, compatible with 2.2.1, Yesterday the iPhone Dev-Team announced the availability of the latest release of PwnageTool and QuickPwn. The newest version offers the ability to jailbreak the latest iPhoen firmwear (2.2.1). Be sure to head over to the Dev-Team’s Blog. when you get a chance as they allso offer information regarding Fixing DFU mode on 10.5.6 (My solution was to not upgrade) for now its a temporary fix invloving installing a developer debug package of the USB kernel extension. but I’m just holding off upgrading to 10.5.6 untill a bit more stable fix is found.

The ‘baseband’ is the generic name given to the internal components of the iPhone that handle the phone calls and Internet access. This ‘baseband’ is a tiny and unique independent computer system that runs inside your iPhone, it is separate to the main system that handles the applications (such as email and google maps) and it talks to the main part of the phone over an internal communications network. Think of it like a cable modem or other peripheral that is attached to your home PC that needs occasional updates. When a software update is released and presented to you within iTunes the baseband is sometimes updated (to fix bugs or add new features). The 2.2.1 update for the iPhone 3G contains such an update, so running the vanilla updater straight away with iTunes will reprogram and update the baseband. This could be bad for certain people, depending on your ultimate aim.

Restoring your iPhone after a jailbreak

There is a few reasons you may want to do this, and this is the main reason most people do not jailbreak there phones, last time I headed up north to spend some time with my family I arived pretty early as I took off work early to head up to Hanford (I arrived at about 7AM). My sister usually gets up around 11 to noon so I snuck in her room and snagged her iPhone off her desk and jailbroke it before she woke up. She was surprised to find her Springboard with new app icons and a background behind the icons.

Just so some of her friends wouldn’t mess with it I removed installer.app after I finished so they could not install anything else on the phone. All my sister was interested in was the styled icons anyway.

We’ll this goes to show you how easy it is to restore the phone, a few weeks later her screen went out and stopped accepting any input it would display things fine but would not accept any input. before I even found out about it she had restored the phone back to default settings, Still nothing. Turns out her screen went bad she took it to the apple store and they replaced it with a new unit on the spot.

All you have to do is toss it in iTunes and select “Restore” from the main iPhone page. it will even back up your phone book, contacts, even your text messages, mail and call log. You’ll end up with a stock iPhone with no data lost, other than for any custom applications that is.

So yes technically Jailbreaking your phone will void the warranty, but after a simple restore, Apple wont know. =)

Its a Jailbreak!

So I was browsing TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog) the other day and noticed a post about iNdependence 1.4 beta, This version of iNdependence has been updated to work with the latest firmware (1.1.4 as of this writing).

Having never attempted a Jailbreak I decided to give it a shot and was incredibly surprised at how easy the process really was.

In case you’re not aware, iNdependence is an open source application destined to “Jailbreak” the iPhone or iPod Touch.

First head over to the iNdependence Google code page for the latest version (please note for version the iPhone firmware version 1.1.4 you need the Beta v1.4 version of iNdependence.) You will have to drag the application over to the /Applications directory. If you try to run it from the disk image you will receive an error.

The next step is pretty straight forward. Simply launch iNdependence and under the “Jailbreak” tab click the button to Jailbreak your phone. Next go to the SSH tab and install SSH and SCP. This is a simple click of a button, you will be asked to restart your phone about 3 times. Do this by holding the sleep wake button and sliding the slider to confirm a power off. Turn the phone back on with the sleep wake button each time.

You now have a Jail-broken phone that you can SSH to with your terminal application. The next step is to download the latest version of installer.app from the apptapp.com page. This application will allow you to install additional applications.

Once you have installer.app you can either use iNdependence to upload it to your phone or filezilla. I used Filezilla because I did this on lunch break at work during this part of the process. Simply connect using SCP over SSH2 to your phones IP address. You can locate your phones IP address by going to Settings > Wi-Fi – then click the little > next to the network you’re currently connected to. Now you want to upload the installer.app folder to /Applications

Next you need to set the proper permissions. You can either do this from Filezilla or you can SSH into the phone and run the following commands:

  • chmod 777 /Applications
  • chmod 777 /Applications/Installer.app
  • chmod 777 /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

Once this has finished, restart your phone once more. You should have a new Icon on your home screen named Installer. The first step I would go about from here is to install the community sources package. You can do this by launching Installer. Next touch the install button near the bottom. Now scroll down to “Sources” and select the Community Sources package. Now touch the install button in the top right corner of the screen to install the package.

That’s it!

Feel free to browse all the applications and install the ones you wish. Another thing to note is after 1.1.3 applications are executed as the mobile user not the root user. Because of this older applications may not function properly until the developers update their applications.

If you have any questions regarding the above process please feel free to email me and I’ll answer your questions or help you find the answers if I don’t know.
