[Guide] How To Fix Missing keys.plist error while jailbreaking iOS 6/6.0.1

The iPhone Dev-Team have just updated Redsn0w, adding full support for final public release of iOS 6/6.0.1 on select devices with official version of Cydia, along with tons of new features which are detailed after the jump.

Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 for both Windows and Mac not only adds support for tethered jailbreak of iOS 6/6.0.1 on A4 based devices, but also for re-restoring and downgrading of select devices from iOS 6/6.0.1 to an older firmware, or in case of re-restoring, from iOS 5.x to iOS 5.x.

Supported devices:

First and foremost, it is important to note this is a tethered jailbreak and is only meant for devices boasting an A4 processor (or below), namely: the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the 4th-gen iPod touch. Devices with A5 (iPhone 4S, iPad 2), A5X (iPad 3) and A6 (iPhone 5) processors are not supported at this point. Hacktivation + baseband preservation support has also been added for iPhone 4 and 3GS.

People updated their iDevices to iOS 6.0.1 after its official release on 1st November.

Jailbreaking it was still a headache for people as an error was shown – “Missing keys.plist” when the device was put into DFU mode and the device was being read.

We at Technologic101 have found a solution to this problem.

The procedure is very simple.

All You Need is iOS 6.0.1 IPSW file on your computer.(For iPhone 3GS and 4 users, BaseBand version should be 06.15.00 or any other compatible BaseBand version)

  1. Upgrade to 6.0.1 via iTunes .
  2. List item
  3. Get Redsn0w version 0.9.15b3
  4. Download iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw
  5. Follow the jailbreak procedure.
  6. Don’t do the “Just Boot” thing yet (this is where we kept getting the missing keys bullshit)
  7. Jailbreak the phone again using the same procedure listed before, but uncheck the “install Cydia” box and check the “install iPad Base Band” box and say you’re sure. AGAIN, verify this is what you want to do! If you have a late model 3GS, DO NOT TRY THIS! IT WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE!
  8. Do not try to “Just Boot” the phone yet.
  9. After the 2nd jailbreak, your phone will be on. Go into the Cydia app and install Ultrasn0w. There are plenty of articles written on this.
  10. Go into Cydia app again and install Untrasn0w Fixer 6.0 NOT 6.0.1! Note: If you’re planning on using the iphone with T-Mobile, you need to turn off 3G in the settings on the phone. This goes for any network without 3G service.
  11. Go back into Redsn0w and follow the “Just Boot” procedure.
  12. The iPhone should reboot with a pwnapple logo.

You Have Successfully jailbroken your iDevice. Have Fun!

[Tutorial] How To Jailbreak A4 Devices On iOS 6.

 

The iPhone dev team have updated Redsn0w, adding full support for final public release of iOS 6 on select devices with official version of Cydia, along with tons of new features which are detailed after the jump.

Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 for both Windows and Mac not only adds support for tethered jailbreak of iOS 6 on A4 based devices, but also for re-restoring and downgrading of select devices from iOS 6 to an older firmware, or in case of re-restoring, from iOS 5.x to iOS 5.x.

Supported devices:

First and foremost, it is important to note this is a tethered jailbreak and is only meant for devices boasting an A4 Processor (or below), namely: the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the 4th-gen iPod Touch. Devices with A5 (iPhone 4S, iPad 2), A5X (iPad 3) and A6 (iPhone 5) processors are not supported at this point. Hacktivation + baseband preservation support has also been added for iPhone 4 and 3GS.

This latest version of Redsn0w does not require the user to go through the trouble of downloading and pointing the app to the iOS 6 IPSW for the jailbreak (the older version of Redsn0w, as mentioned in our previous jailbreak iOS 6 guide, required manual IPSW selection). Instead, the latest Redsn0w recognizes the firmware already installed on your device, downloads the required files and proceeds with the jailbreak. It’s that simple. Cydia, as mentioned above, is now also included as part of this Redsn0w’s release.

Jailbreaking is done in the same way as it is done with iOS 5.

Note for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS Ultrasn0w unlockers: You will first need to preserve your older baseband to be eligible for unlock. Click on “Extras” option and then select “Custom IPSW” option. Select the required iOS 6 IPSW file for your device, and let Redsn0w make the custom firmware for you. Once done, enter Pwned DFU mode by selecting “Pwned DFU” from Redsn0w’s Extras option, and then restore to this custom firmware.

How to boot your device tethered on iOS 6:

Since this is a tethered iOS 6 jailbreak, you will need to boot your device in a tethered mode every time the device is turned off and back on. Booting in tethered mode is easy, and can be achieved using Redsn0w: click on the “Extras” from the main screen and then simply click on “Just Boot” option. Follow the on-screen instructions. Once done, you will be rebooted back into tethered-jailbreak mode.

What’s new in Redsn0w 0.9.15b2?

New re-restore features have also been introduced in this version of Redsn0w. It now allows third-gen iPad and iPhone 4S users to RE-restore to any version of iOS 5.x even if Apple is currently not signing the software, provided that your SHSH blobs are saved for iOS 5.x, and the device is currently running iOS 5.x (not iOS 6) that too updated via iTunes, not OTA. iPad 2 users will also be able to downgrade if they have blobs for both 4.x and 5.x saved – even from iOS 6. The A4 based iPhone 4, 3GS and 4th-gen iPod Touch users can of course always downgrade to an older firmware for untethered jailbreak provided that they have SHSH blobs saved for the firmware they want to downgrade on.

If you want to install Cydia on iOS6,refer to this article.

[Direct Links] Absinthe 2.0 iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Now Available For Download!

Absinthe logo

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, we have hit that time once again  in the jailbreak cycle when we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief and raise a glass to the jailbreak producers while we overload their servers attempting to download the new and shiny utility that will provide our devices with freedom. Yes, that is right, I am indeed talking about downloading Absinthe 2.0, the latest version of the Chronic Dev Team tool that brings an untethered jailbreak to the majority of our iOS 5.1.1 devices.

We have found ourselves in an all too familiar situation over the last couple of months, stuck in limbo between wanting to update to the latest official firmware, but not knowing when or indeed if a functional jailbreak would be released. Keeping history in mind, we should be able to rest easy in the fact that researchers such as Pod2g have always managed to escape the securities put in place by Apple to bring a jailbreak to the masses, but there will always remain a small part within us that has doubts each time Apple pushes a new version of iOS.

With work on the iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak being finished and satisfactorily tested, the team involved have included the files and exploits in a new version of the Chronic Dev Team’s Absinthe tool that was introduced to us as a jailbreak solution for iOS 5.0.1. One of the main benefits of the tool is the extreme simplicity of the interface, with user guidance being provided all the way through and only involving a few clicks to get the job done.

As confirmed by iPhone Dev Team leader MuscleNerd, the 5.1.1 jailbreak will also be available through the use of the tried and tested Redsn0w tool as well as an updated version of the command line interface cinject binary. We already know that a large number of users prefer the familiar interface that the Redsn0w tool offers, but for those who aren’t stuck on familiarity and want to go down the route of using Absinthe for its rather cool and edgy sounding name as well as the simple and intuitive interface, then it is officially available to download now!

Compatible devices for iOS 5.1.1 untether:

  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPad (3rd Gen) [Doesn’t work for iPad 2,4 yet]
  • iPad 2
  • iPad 1
  • iPod touch 3G/4G
  • Apple TV (2nd Gen)

[News & Tutorial] Jailbreak for A5 Devices (iPad2 & iPhone4S) is here

Friends, lovers and fellow jailbreakers, the wait is over, the jailbreaks here for Mac owners (Windows and Linux versions to follow in the near future).

The chronicdev team has released a new tool called Absinthe that can be used to jailbreak the A5 device that are- iPhone 4s and iPad 2.

Tutorial:

NOTE: It is always advisable to have a complete backup before jailbreaking your device. Also, make sure you use iFaith to save your device’s SSH, so that if something goes wrong, you can always come back to 5.0.1 and have another go at it 😃

1) Download absinthe and install on your Mac,PC or Linux Machine

2)Connect your iDevice and launch Absinthe. Once detected by absinthe hit the jailbreak button and get yourself some chips, because it’ll take a while 😜.

3) Once finished, you should see an absinthe icon. Open it and it should take you to the GreenP0ision website, and it’ll reboot in a minute. After the reboot is finished, the aforementioned absinthe icon will be replaced by the Cydia icon, mmmm…..

[TUTORIAL] How to Jailbreak iPod,iPad, and iPhone on iOS 4.3.x and iOS 5 with Redsn0w 0.9.9b1

Redsn0w, one of the best jailbreaking tools in the scene was today updated to version Just and has some great changes in it which were very much required.
In the latest version, the IPSW files are no longer required except for the iOS 5 Betas as these are not available to the public at the moment (except to Developers).

Here’s the full changelog :

Changelog : 

Uses DFU mode to try to automatically determine which device and FW you have

Fetches pieces of public IPSWs from Apple (once).

Non-public IPSWs must be provided manually (once). It then caches those pieces for future use.

“Just boot” is a tethered boot.

Uses whatever “Preferences” you’ve set for boot logo and kernel boot-args

“Pwned DFU” puts your device in a pwned DFU state for some of the iTunes stuff detailed below “Recovery fix” gets past 1015 types of errors (when baseband portion of restore fails). Should work on iOS5 beta too

“Select IPSW” is for picking non-public IPSWs, or overriding auto-detection “SHSH blobs” has a bunch of options…

“Fetch” – fetch current PARTIAL blobs on device. Should complete in under 10 or 15 seconds. Puts the set of PARTIAL of blobs on your computer as a plist.

Checks if Cydia already has a full set for this device and build. If not, it submits this PARTIAL set and returns Cydia’s acknowledgement or rejection

“Verify” – cryptographically verifies existing blob files from either redsn0w, TinyUmbrella, or Cydia server.

You can select a whole bunch of blobs to verify at once if you want (like the TinyUmbrella directory) “Submit” – both verifies and submits one or more blob files to Cydia. This lets you copy your entire TinyUmbrella cache of blobs up to the Cydia server

“Query” – queries the Cydia server for all available FULL or PARTIAL blobs for a given set of ECIDs “Stitch” – stitches either FULL or PARTIAL blobs to a STOCK or CUSTOM IPSW

Other updates : 

1. FULL blobs stitched to a STOCK IPSW gives you a completely self-contained signed IPSW that iTunes will accept without any tricks (no need to go into pwned DFU mode, no need to start TinyUmbrella TSS server, no need to redirect to Cydia server for blobs)

2. PARTIAL blobs stitched to any IPSW requires you to go into pwned DFU mode before running iTunes. No need to start TU or use Cydia though.

3. stitching either FULL or PARTIAL blobs to a CUSTOM IPSW also requires a pwned DFU start before iTunes restores. No need to start TU or use Cydia though.

4. stitching is NOT yet supported on iPhones (well, at least not tested). Need to work out the baseband part of the restore process.

5. will eventually support fetching the blobs directly from Cydia instead of a file on your computer

Just Follow the instructions Properly and You’ll be Fine =D

Steps (for Mac and PC users):

1. Download Redsn0w from the download section below and run it.

If you’re on Windows Vista or Windows 7 then you should right click Redsn0w and set compatibility to Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and then run it as the Administrator.

2. Hit Jailbreak and enter DFU mode by following these steps:

a. Hold down the power button for 3 seconds
b. Continue holding the power button and start holding the home button and continue HOLDING BOTH for 10 seconds
c. Let go of power and continue holding home button for 20 seconds (even after it skips to the next screen! YOU MUST COUNT TO 20 ON YOUR OWN)

3. Select install Cydia and any other options you want – however, don’t select “Install custom bundles”

4. Wait for it to finish and reboot.

5. Power off your iDevice while its plugged in and then open Redsn0w again

6. Hit “Extras” and then select “Just boot” and enter DFU mode by following the instructions in step 2.

You are now Jailbroken on iOS 4.3.5 so ENJOY =D

NOTE: you WILL need to follow steps 4 and 5 every time you need to reboot your iDevice!

1. Open up iTunes, select your device and while holding down the Shift (Windows) or Option (Mac) key, click on Restore.

2. Now, select the iOS 4.3.5 firmware you downloaded above and let it update your device.

3. Once done, open up the Redsn0w application that we just downloaded.

4. Click on the browse button and select the iOS 4.3.4 firmware you downloaded for your iDevice from above.

5. Once verified, click me, the and you’ll see a list of options. Make sure that Install Cydia is selected.

6. Click next and now, plug your iPhone into the computer and make sure its OFF then click the Next button.

8. Once this is complete, you will be notified that RedSn0w is done. Click the Finish button. When your iPhone finishes rebooting (5 minutes or so) it will be jailbroken with the Cydia icon on the SpringBoard.

How to boot tethered :
Once RedSn0w has finished jailbreaking your device, you will need to boot it tethered.
Again, open RedSn0w and this time select Just boot tethered right now from the list of options instead of installing Cydia.
Your iDevice will reboot and you’ll be presented with a jailbroken iOS 4.3.5. :)
