Apple released iTunes 8.2 just in time for a probable iPhone 3.0 release at WWDC ’09. While iTunes 8.2 adds support for iPhone 3.0 goodness, it strips iPhone off of all the Jailbreak excitement! If you upgrade to the latest version of iTunes, you will no longer be able to Jailbreak the iPhone nor use SSH over USB. Apple changed some protocols in MobileDevice framework which resulted in panic-mode amongst the jailbreak community! The added security implemented some serious checks on the device hardware/software (security epoch, chipid, security domain, production …

The much sought after firmware iPhone 3.0 Beta 2 firmware with a snappier touch over the Beta 1 is finally jailbroken (only a day after it was released!). Thanks to the Russian hackers @ iPhoneApps.ru
It is more or less a patched version of QuickPwn not endorsed by the Dev Team though. You get icy (from installer guys) on your iPhone and from there on you can put Cydia via SSH on your iPhone once you install openSSH.
I repeat, this jailbreak is intended only to those enrolled in the developer program. …

For a change, I published 3 videos which definitely enables a total noob to unlock his/her iPhone without much difficulty. Latest Firmware via iTunes (2.2), QuickPwn (Jailbreak) and yellowsn0w via Cydia/installer (Unlock) hold the three key steps for a successful unlock.
Before proceeding further, make sure you are equipped with the following :
1) Strictly iPhone 3G Updated to 2.2 firmware via iTunes (2G iPhones have a different process – BootNeuter from Cydia).
2) Intel Mac (10.5.6 s/w update) or Windows machine. [Mac users, make sure DFU mode is enabled (10.5.6 s.w update …

Update : Dev Team confirmed the release date for Software Unlock. Please steer away from x-sim unlock techniques. 2.11.07 is the best baseband for now. 2.28 baseband users : solution pending.

Apple’s iPhone 2.2 Firmware certainly sports some cool new features but is it worth taking the risk and¬†updating given the fact that it disrupts the ONLY available unlocking technique ( Sim Unlock ) ?

I have some iPhone 3G’s (bought from Canada) at my disposal and I first updated one of my iPhone 3Gs directly to firmware version 2.2 since I …

DOWNLOAD THE COMMON FILE
I am working on a video as well as detailed Pwnage 2.0.1 guide for the noobs. Pwnage is rock solid but some surprises here and there surface every now and then.

I am forced to write an article on this issue given the number of occurrences. You might as well bargain for a 3G iPhone in return!
The following write-up applies to an iPhone which has mal/dis-functioning home button, iPhone sync/charging USB pin and some other similar situations.
Hey, hardware failures are taken care of by Apple, why do I care? What if you jailbroke your iPhone and you are now unable to get rid of the most favorite installer.app icon which Apple Geniuses are fond of since they can deny service outright …
