Dev Team Offers ‘Baseband Freedom’ with Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 Release

July 7, 2012 — by Seuli B.0


The iPhone Dev Team released Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 that promises to improve the iPad baseband downgrade, besides covering anyone who couldn’t downgrade with 0.9.14b1.

As you might already be knowing that Redsn0w now allows iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users sporting iPad’s 06.15.00 baseband to downgrade back to 05.13.04 baseband with a fully working unlock and GPS. So, if you are one of then who could not downgrade previously; you should be able to do so now with this latest release, provided your iPhone is compatible for the downgrade.

Downgrade Baseband 06.15 to 05.13.04 Using RedSn0w 0.9.14b1

June 19, 2012 — by Simon Ng12


Not long ago, the iPhone Dev team announced an update of its popular jailbreak tool “Redsn0w”. The latest version allows iPhone 3G/3GS user to downgrade the baseband from 06.15 to 05.13.04. By downgrading, users who are originally stuck with the 06.15 baseband, can now use ultrasn0w to unlock their iPhone.

Here is the official release note of Redsn0w 0.9.14b1:

The iPhone Dev Team is happy to announce a baseband downgrade option in redsn0w for those who are using the iPad’s 06.15 baseband on the iPhone3G or iPhone3GS.

Typically you’d have the 06.15 baseband if you unlock with ultrasn0w but updated your iPhone baseband past 05.13.04. With this new capability, you can now downgrade specifically from 06.15 to 05.13.04 (even if you never had 05.13.04 on that device before). This gives you the best of both worlds: ultrasn0w compatibility and a normal iPhone baseband with full GPS and the ability to use stock IPSWs again.

Here are the steps:

Use the “Extras->Select IPSW” button in redsn0w to tell it which firmware version you have installed (new-bootrom 3GS users can usually skip this step but it doesn’t hurt for them to do it too).
Do a controlled shutdown of your iPhone (“slide to power off”). This step is very important to avoid mount problems when the ramdisk is running!
Go back to the first screen and click “Jailbreak”. Enable the “Downgrade from iPad baseband” checkbox, disable Cydia if you already have it installed, and click Next to proceed through the normal DFU ramdisk steps.
After the ramdisk gets launched and you see the Pwnapple running on your iPhone, you’ll eventually get to the “Flashing Baseband” step. THIS STEP TAKES A VERY LONG TIME to complete and there won’t be any feedback while its running. Please just let it be for the next 3-8 minutes! When the ramdisk has done its job it will reboot the phone on its own.

For those who are wondering if you can update your 3G or 3GS to 06.15 solely for the purposes of downgrading to 05.13.04, the answer is “yes” for 3G owners, and “maybe” for 3GS owners. The iPad baseband is not compatible with 3GS units manufactured week 34 of 2011 or later. If you have an iPhone3GS and if digits 3-5 of its Serial Number are 134 or later (xx134…), then you should NOT try to install the 06.15 baseband on your 3GS! It will brick your radio, preventing both the downgrade from working and normal iPhone software from using it as a phone! Be warned!

Guide To Downgrade iOS 5.1.1 To iOS 5.1/5.0.1/5.0 (A4 Only)

June 10, 2012 — by Adeel Qayum23


Downgrading an iOS device is becoming harder than ever. In the old days, it used to be simple. All one had to do is download the older firmware and overwrite it. But now Apple has made it hard but we have the Dev Team on our side and with their redsn0w tool, downgrading to a lower iOS version is easily achievable.

The reason to downgrade is pretty obvious – for jailbreaking. The upcoming tutorial will help you to downgrade if you’ve saved the SHSH+APTicket. If you haven’t done so, then read no further as you’re out of luck.

iOS 5.1 Jailbreak: Redsn0w 0.9.10b6 Released to Jailbreak iPhone 4, 3GS and iPad

March 9, 2012 — by Simon Ng9

redsn0w jailbreaking in processIt’s really fast. Right after the debut of iOS 5.1, the iPhone Dev team released Redsn0w 0.9.10b6, its popular jailbreak tool, to support jailbreaking for the latest version of iOS.

Presently, Redsn0w 0.9.10b6 only supports tethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad (1st generation) and iPod Touch (3G/4G) running on iOS 5.1. Before you go ahead to jailbreak the device, please take some time to read the below note:

  • This jailbreak tool is not for iPhone 4S or iPad 2 users. Therefore, don’t upgrade to iOS 5.1 if you really care about jailbreaking.
  • Except for iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), the tool only supports “tethered” jailbreak on other devices. That means you’ll need to jailbreak again when your device is rebooted or runs out of battery. If you don’t like that, you better wait for the next update of redsn0w.
  • If you rely on ultrasn0w to unlock your device, make sure you use a custom IPSW to get into iOS 5.1. Don’t upgrade directly on iTunes or via OTA software update. The purpose of custom IPSW is to preserve the baseband so that you can still use ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone after the iOS upgrade.
  • This version of redsn0w doesn’t support iBook.

If you understand the limitation of redsn0w 0.9.10b6 and want to jailbreak your iOS 5.1, you can download the tool from the following links:

For your reference, here is the full release note from the iPhone Dev team:

First, please read and re-read the above warnings! With all of that in mind, we realize that some of you non-A5 jailbreakers are itching to get to 5.1, even though there seems to be no compelling new feature there. Because of geohot’s limera1n exploit, those with devices earlier than the iPad2 can test the 5.1 jailbreak waters if they really want to, using redsn0w 0.9.10b6. Here’s what you need to know:

This is a *tethered* 5.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices. You’ll need to use redsn0w to “Just Boot” your device every time it power cycles, otherwise jailbreak apps won’t work (neither will Safari).

If you use ultrasn0w for your carrier unlock, be sure to use a custom IPSW to get to 5.1 first! Don’t ever restore to a stock Apple IPSW! Use redsn0w’s “Custom IPSW” button to create a NO_BB_* version of the 5.1 IPSW and restore to that instead of the stock one. (That option is available only to 3GS and iPhone4-GSM owners.) ultrasn0w itself will be updated for 5.1 in the next few days (same baseband support, not 5.1’s baseband).

If you’re lucky enough to have an old-bootrom 3GS, this jailbreak is actually untethered (redsn0w will figure that part out automatically).

While we were at it, we added @pod2g’s steaks4uce exploit to support MC models of the iPod touch 2G (whose last firmware was 4.2.1). So now redsn0w will auto-detect and jailbreak both MB and MC versions of that older device.

iBooks won’t work until a future update of redsn0w
