By Cody Lee on May 12, 2012

Yesterday, the Dev Team released one of the biggest updates to their RedSn0w utility in recent memory. The new version included a feature that allows A5 device owners to downgrade their firmware to one that is jailbreakable.

But those with an iPhone 4S who only had SHSH blobs saved from iOS 5.0.1 (build 9A406) haven’t been able to use the new feature to downgrade. Until now. RedSn0w 0.9.11b2 brings support for the forgotten firmware… Read More

Should hackers wait for iOS 6 to release the next jailbreak?

By Cody Lee on Apr 26, 2012

Pod2g has just put up quite the interesting poll on his personal blog. The infamous hacker, who is responsible for a majority of the recent exploits found in iOS, is asking folks to vote on the following question: “Shall we hold off the jailbreak for iOS 6?”

The question comes just a few days after we heard that hackers were finally making some progress on the iOS 5.1 jailbreak. Of course, if it’s released before iOS 6 comes out, the exploits will almost certainly be patched up in the new software… Read More

How to install iPhoto and iMovie on iOS 5.0.1

By Jeff Benjamin on Mar 13, 2012

iPhoto was the big new app release that Apple touted at its new iPad media event, but the bad news is that it requires iOS 5.1.

For those of us with jailbroken iPhone 4S’ and iPad 2′s, this places us in an interesting predicament.

Since there is no way to jailbreak iOS 5.1 on these devices, updating now would not only prevent us from jailbreaking, but it would also prevent us from downgrading back to iOS 5.0.1 now that Apple has closed the signing window for that firmware.

So, what to do? Fortunately, there’s an easy workaround to this problem, and we’re going to walk you through the process on video… Read More

How to unlock the iPhone 4S using the R-SIM interposer

By Jeff Benjamin on Mar 5, 2012

I’ll admit that I’ve never used a Gevey SIM interposer, or anything like it in the past, but I figured I’d give it a shot with the iPhone 4S.

The iPhone 4S has its own special SIM interposer called the R-SIM II Ultra S, which was recently released.

I’m happy to report that this is by far the easiest method for “unlocking” your iPhone 4S, and using it with T-Mobile or virtually any other GSM carrier. And guess what, no jailbreak is required.
