Installing iOS7 on your Device


*FIRST AND FOREMOST BACK DA FUCK UP ALL YOUR DATA BEFORE PROCEEDING. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU LOSE YOUR STUFF OR BRICK YOUR DEVICE!!! MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE PROPER IPSW FILE FOR YOUR DEVICE. THIS IS BASICALLY JUST UP BECAUSE MANY OF MY FRIENDS ARE SAYING THEY HAVING PROBLEMS DOWNLOADING THE UPDATE FROM ITUNES. THIS IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY FROM DOWNLOADING THROUGH ITUNES.

IPHONE USERS:

CDMA = MEANS YOU ARE USING SPRINT OR VERIZON SERVICE
GSM = MEANS YOU ARE USING TMOBILE OR AT&T
HERE IS A LINK THAT EXPLAINS IN DETAIL MORE THE DIFFERENCES.
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2407896,00.asp

HERE IS THE LINK FOR THE IPSW DOWNLOADS. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG THAT LINK WILL BE ACTIVE. THESE ARE OFFICIAL APPLE UPDATE FILES.
http://www.iosdownload.net/?iosday

AFTER YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED THE PROPER IPSW FOR YOUR DEVICE WAIT TIL IT FINISHES DOWNLOADING AND REMEMBER WHERE IT IS SAVED ON YOUR COMPUTER BECAUSE YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW.

**YOU CAN ALSO REFER TO THIS PAGE FOR INFO AND PICTURES OF THIS PROCESS**
http://osxdaily.com/2013/09/18/how-to-install-upgrade-ios-7-manually-with-ipsw/

SO BASICALLY HERE IS HOW YOU DO THIS. ITS VERY EASY.

1. UPDATE ITUNES TO THE NEW 11.1 VERSION FOR BOTH WINDOWS AND MAC
2. BACKUP YOUR DEVICE NOW!!!! THIS IS JUST TO BE SAFE YOU WILL NOT LOSE ANYTHING. IT JUST UPDATED MY IPOD AND I LOST NOTHING
3. ONCE THE FILE HAS FINISHED DOWNLOADING GO TO YOUR DEVICE SUMMARY SCREEN IN ITUNES WHERE IT SHOWS ALL YOUR INFO.
4. LOOK BELOW FOR YOUR COMPUTER TYPE

FOR MAC USERS
*PRESS THE OPTION BUTTON AND CLICK CHECK FOR UPDATE.
*A WINDOW POPS UP ASKING YOU TO FIND WHERE YOU HAVE SAVED THE IPSW FILE YOU HAVE JUST DOWNLOADED.
*FIND THAT FILE AND CLICK IT SO THAT IT IS LOADED INTO ITUNES.
*ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THIS A DIALOG BOX POPS UP SAYING ITUNES WILL UPDATE YOUR DEVICE TO IOS7 AND WILL VERIFY THE UPDATE WITH APPLE. CLICK OK

FOR WINDOWS USERS
*PRESS THE SHIFT BUTTON WHILE CLICKING CHECK FOR UPDATE
*A WINDOW POPS UP ASKING YOU TO FIND WHERE YOU HAVE SAVED THE IPSW FILE YOU JUST DOWNLOADED
*FIND THAT FILE AND CLICK IT SO THAT IT IS LOADED INTO ITUNES
*ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THIS A DIALOG BOX POPS UP SAYING ITUNES WILL UPDATE YOUR DEVICE TO IOS7 AND WILL VERIFY THE UPDATE WITH APPLE. CLICK OK

5. FOLLOW ALL THE SCREEN PROMPTS AS ITUNES UPDATES YOUR DEVICE. THIS WILL TAKE PLACE JUST LIKE ANY OTHER UPDATE. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT YOU DOWNLOADED THE FILE AND ARE UPDATING FROM THE FILE RATHER THAN ITUNES DOING ALL THE WORK FOR YOU.
6. THATS IT. REALLY THATS IT. JUST FOLLOW THE PROMPTS AND LET IT DO ITS THANG AND YOUR DEVICE WILL BE UPDATED.

I HAD IOS7 BETA SO FOR ME THERE WASNT MUCH OF A CHANGE. IN FACT IM SURE THERE WAS ONLY BUG FIXES AND SUCH FOR ME BUT IF YOU ARE ON IOS6 THEN YOU WILL NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE IMMEDIATELY!

Steve Jobs 1955-2011


First off many know I am not an Apple fan by any means. Therefore I really can’t say anything about Steve Jobs that will fascinate you. With his death days ago I had to stop all the teasing because it just wasn’t right to do. I still won’t be an Apple fan but I will give my sypathy to his family on his death.

I guess thats why he decided to step down as CEO in order to enjoy what was left of his life. Makes me wonder why a man with all the money couldn’t get treatment for his situation. Then again I guess it was at a point where it was untreatable. I dont know. Im sure others do. Like i say though, I didn’t follow the life of him.

He did create a kick ass Apple IIe computer which I remember creating stupid loop programs and shit back in elementary school. lol. Thats about all I can say. Out of respect for his family and his followers I simply wanted to post this to pay respects to the innovator he was and will continue to be. I can’t see myself paying that much for a laptop but then again I am a PC guy so those that like MACs im sure will continue to enjoy his products. For those that do, thats the biggest tribute to the man they could do.

It is true that many of his ideas were incorporated in the computers we use today. I guess I grew to like computers because of that Apple IIe tan colored big ass computer LOL.

So as I end this, thanx Steve Jobs.

On a humorous note: look at those old pics of Steve when he had long hair, beard and glasses……I swear he resembles Ben Javhari from the Short Circuit movies (played by Fisher Stevens) lol

RIP Steve

I can’t wait for beta testing. i will definitely be testing this fucker out! Basically if you have seen Windows Phone 7 then this is quite similar and I happen to like Windows Phone 7 GUI.

Apple to Release iOS 4.3 This Month/December


If you already have jailbroken your phone and upgraded the bb to 6.15.00 you might wanna know that Apple is once again releasing new firmware. iOS 4.3 is set to come out in the next week or two with App Subscriptions.

You can find info on this release easily just by googling iOS 4.3. If your a jailbreaker/unlocker then you know by now to NOT upgrade your phone. Well, if you upgraded to bb 6.15.00 you wont be able to from my understanding. When you upgraded the bb you pretty much rendered your phone only able to install firmware by using custom IPSWs.

Those using the 3GS will be happy to know that an untethered jailbreak is soon to be available. Its a known issue that the GPS chip has been disabled after the new Ultrasn0w 1.2 unlock. Some have reported that thier GPS is still working. Well I guess your in the lucky few…..somehow! Ive read that the dev team is looking for a fix for that if possible. More info is available on the limera1n website and the iphone dev team blog website.

check em out. oh and down with Steve Jobs and his bullshit OSs. Sorry Steve your phones are being hacked all over the world and you cant stop it!!! BWHAHAHAAHHA!

iPhone 3G/3GS Unlocking w/ Ultrasn0w 1.2 Battery Drainage Fix


if you are experiencing horrid battery usage from your phone AFTER hacktivating it then goto this site and read this article

http://www.limera1n.cc/2010/12/download-redsn0w-096b6-beta-6-to.html

OR

you can use a valid AT&T SIM card to activate the phone. I didnt have this problem when unlocking my friends phone. I had an old AT&T SIM in the phone so as soon as it was done unlocking, rebooting and opening iTunes the phone said activation complete and was done. When the phone doesn’t activate using the SIM it is constantly trying to activate via SIM so its draining your battery. Read the article about this fix.

Sorry, I have not applied this fix so I really can’t help anyone with it. I’d suggest asking the devs or other members from a forum. This is just up to help those looking for the battery fix. The fix is contained in Redsn0w 0.9.6 beta 6. download it free. Link is on the page I listed above.

Jailbreak & Unlock iPhone 3G/3GS by Upgrading to BB 6.15.00


Im in no way an iCrap fan but after the last two weeks of working on a friends iPhone 3G to unlock it and the crap I went through to get it done I thought I would share all the shit I ended up learning on this with others. So read what I have on here and you can goto the two links below for more info and im sure more easy step by step instructions.

Thanx
The Grylls

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO iCrap lovers/whores/fanatics…etc…..YES the latest jailbreak and unlocks do work. I personally did it with ease. IF you follow instructions and have the RIGHT FW and tools you as well can do so! You can post comments asking for assistance and I will try to help you as best I can. Take in mind im just a person that as jailbroken and unlocked. I am not an Apple OS developer/hacker….lol

******iPhone 4 owners please STOP! This process does NOT work for your phone. Please refer to

http://blog.iphone-dev.org
http://www.limera1n.cc/

These sites will give you info on when iPhone4 baseband 2.10.04 will be able to jailbreak and unlock. Devs have already seen exploits that should allow for this soon. Stay tuned to their blogs/sites daily for info. Please dont hound the developers for release times. THey will release when it is 100% known to work.

Many of you have been flooding the internetz with off the wall posts and bitching about HOW TO UNLOCK THE IPHONE. well if you updated your iPhone to iOS 4.1 or 4.2 and your baseband is 5.14.02 or higher then you can easily JAILBREAK AND UNLOCK it. YOU MUST follow the steps though and do everything as said. It really doesn’t take long. In fact the longest time you will spend is downloading the IPSW files you need.

First off you need some tools. If you are using a Windows XP/Vista or Windows 7 system then this is the list of steps you need and the materials you need to get this done right. Before continuing, if you have an iPhone 3GS then you NEED to put your phone on iOS 4.1 firmware. If you are on iOS 4.2.1 already you can unlock with this installed BUT you will ONLY have a tethered jailbreak. Meaning you need to tether each time you boot the phone. If you install iOS 4.1 firmware on your 3GS then the jailbreak will be untethered. I read this on a developer blog. Dont ask me where because ive read enough shit about this already that I didnt save the fucking link! LOL

SOOOO you will need these items and I will provide you with download links to get the firmware and programs.

You Need:

*iPhone 3G/3GS of course
*iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1 IPSW firmware files
*Redsn0w Latest Release 0.9.6 beta 5
*iPhone USB cable

Redsn0w 0.9.6 beta 5
http://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_win_0.9.6b5.zip?attredirects=0

First things first. What firmware is your phone running? 4.1 or 4.2? Before I begin explaining things you have to remember a few tips. If you are running iOS 4.1 on a 3G then you are fine. Same with 4.2. If you are running iOS 4.2.1 on a 3GS then you NEED to install iOS 4.1 on your phone. Reason?!? well on iOS 4.1 you get an untethered jailbreak. With iOS 4.2.1 you get a tethered jailbreak and you will need to tether each time you boot the phone to jailbreak. Its your option but i’d go with iOS 4.1 on your 3GS.

Make sure you update your iTunes to the new 10.1 version. If you need to install a stock FW on your phone do so by connecting your iPhone and turning it on. Once it prompts you to install iOS 4.1 or 4.2 you can do so. When using redsn0w later you will need the IPSW Firmware file for the version your phone is running in order to use redsn0w.

Ok. So before you run Redsn0w on your Windows Vista or Windows 7 machine make sure you do a few things. Right click on the redsn0w file in the folder you unzipped. You will need either WinZip or WinRAR to unzip the folder or you can let Windows use the built-in feature it has.

Before using Redsn0w Do the following: (Win Vista and Win 7 Only)

*Right click on the redsn0w file and goto Properties
*Check the box to run in Windows XP Compatibility Mode
*Check the box to Run in Administrator Mode
*Click OK and your done here.

Now run Redsn0w. You will see the redsn0w program come up Do the following in Redsn0w

*Run Redsn0w
*Click Browse
*Browse and point redsn0w to the IPSW file YOUR iPhone is currently running
(if your phone has iOS 4.1 then select the 4.1 IPSW. if using 4.2 then select that IPSW)
*Once the IPSW is verified successfully click next.
*Make sure Install Cydia and Install iPad Baseband are checked then continue
*Now turn off and connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable
*Be ready to put your iPhone in DFU Mode quickly after the screen tells you to turn off.
*Follow prompts and once your phone is in DFU Mode it will performs tasks then reboot.
*Redsn0w says waiting for reboot. Let phone reboot and finish installation.

Once you are at this stage your phone has now been jailbroken and redsn0w has installed Cydia. If your phone is not already connected to a WIFI network I would suggest doing so or insert a valid AT&T SIM. You will need to have access to a network via WIFI or mobile so that Cydia can download and update packages. I had a T-Mobile unactivated SIM in the phone when I did this. At first the phone would reboot and only show the Emergency Calls Only screen. At this point open iTunes assuming you have installed the new 10.1 version. Your phone will now say Activation in Progress and gives you the option to Dismiss. You should now be able to access the springboard were as before you couldn’t. Just open iTunes!!

On the springboard scroll to the last page of icons and tap Cydia. It will run and then close itself down. Re-open it. You may be prompted to reboot the phone to continue. Once Cydia has been opened again let it finish loading and re-loading data.

Now follow these steps in Cydia to install Ultrasn0w to unlock your phone

*Open Cydia and let it load/re-load data
*Tap on Manage at the bottom of the screen and goto Sources.
*Under Sources you should see http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com repository already in the list. if not add it.
*Select the Ultrasn0w repo and install. It should be Ultrasnow 1.2
*After installation your phone will prompt you to reboot!
*Tap the reboot button and let your iPhone reboot.

At this point after your phone has been jailbroken and you have gone through Cydia and installed Ultrasn0w 1.2 your phone should now be unlocked!!! You can now enter any SIM such as a T-Mobile SIM and enjoy your new unlocked iCrap!

TROUBLESHOOTING AFTER UNLOCKING

Many of you may have done this already and looking for a solution because you are not getting network access with an non-ATT SIM. There solution is pretty simple assuming you have done everything exactly as it should have been done.

If you have jailbroken and unlocked but have NO network access for your SIM then do the following:

Tap on the Settings > General > Network
Under Network the first option you see is Enable 3G. It is most likely set to Enable. Tap it to DISABLE it.

After reading past unlock instructions which informed to disable 3G before unlocking I did so with this unlock before installing Ultrasn0w. Still after doing so 3G service does not appear to be working but EDGE for T-Mobile does. So if your not getting SIM access for your card then disable 3G and your phone should start running on the SIM within a few moments. If not reboot and it should be working assuming you unlocked correctly.

KNOWN ISSUES:

* Many are reporting GPS issues. GPS not working
* Many are reporting lag on the phone after unlocking (I experienced a slight lag myself on iOS 4.1 unlock)
* No SIM network coverage after unlocking (disable 3G in Settings>General>Network)

Redsn0w ISSUES:

* Stuck on Waiting for Reboot (make sure you have the correct FW file loaded that your phone is using)
* Wont Verify IPSW file. (make sure you have downloaded the correct IPSWs for your device!!!)
* Ran Redsn0w but didnt update baseband (make sure you have ran redsn0w in XP Mode and as Administrator)
* Redsn0w taking long time to update baseband files (redsn0w access Apple servers to update to 6.15.00 baseband. The servers are bombarded. Give it some time!)

UPDATE: – FIX FOR 3G/3GS BATTERY DRAIN AND ULTRASN0W OVERHEAT

A) 1st Solution: try to activate the phone using the official sim if u have it (even if the sim itself is old and not working) , or borrow it from a friend if it’s possible, by any means, try to have an access to one and use it
B) 2nd Solution: if A is not feasible, u can install SBsettings from featured cydia packages and turn wifi and data off when u r not using it (shuts down both 3g and edge) , till C is done
C) 3rd Solution: there is a very nice module being worked on by a trusted jailbreak app dev, namely @sbingner , which ll resolve that issue for those having it, the details of which shouldn’t be disclosed until he finishes his awesome work, till then, either use A or B to resolve the issue if it exists for you
