[News] iOS 6 Rumoured Jailbreak Release

20121221-185232.jpg
At a time when millions of iOS 6 users have been eagerly waiting for an untethered jailbreak for months now, an unknown hacker by the name of “Dream JB” has created a buzz among the jailbreak community by claiming that he will release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 Dec. 22. The self-proclaimed hacker has even said that his untethered exploit will be compatible with newer iOS devices such as iPhone 5, iPad Mini, iPad 4 and the new iPod touch.

On 17th December 2012, the Dream JB (Dream Jailbreak) website was updated with a post outlining the progress of the claimed iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5. The hacker said that he would upload a video Wednesday, proving that the untethered jailbreak he created was real. Here’s what the post said:
“Proof will be posted both here and on my Twitter account on Wednesday. As far as the video that will be uploaded, it will be a single-take shot of the entire jailbreak process, including a restart and usage of the device to prove it is untethered. It will be uploaded as raw video straight from my camera to YouTube. So no edits in any form. Thank you all for your patience and support. Also, with the extremely high volume of tweets and over 4500 emails, I will try to address the public as I can. I ask that you read the FAQ before contacting me by email. I will update the FAQ for you all tomorrow morning. I’ve also moved past website updates to the bottom of the page. Goodnight everyone!

I should note that all announcements are made in EST time zone. As of now it’s 8:11 PM EST, proof should be out before 8 PM EST tomorrow.”

According to the hacker, the new iOS 6 and 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak will support devices including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (2nd generation and beyond), iPad Mini and iPod touch (4th generation and beyond).

As per the FAQ page provided by the Dream JB website, the jailbreak will be a one-click process and will differ from the previous jailbreak methods using “Webkit exploit” and “userland exploit.” The hacker clearly stated that “any device that normally supports iOS 6.0/6.0.1 is supported by the jailbreak,” meaning A6 devices are included.

Meanwhile, Dream JB’s claims regarding the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak have raised a lot of skepticisms around the tech world, with prominent jailbreak developers of the iPhone Dev Team and the Chronic Dev Team denouncing it as yet another elaborate gambit of a hoaxer.

While well-known iOS hacker MuscleNerd has put Dream Jailbreak on his list of “fake” jailbreaks, another renowned jailbreak developer Joshua Hill aka @p0sixninja criticized it saying “they’re all fake.”

No matter how many times we say “They’re all fake” no one ever listens….. *sigh*

iOS hacker iH8sn0w, on the other hand, too to his Twitter account saying: “Never trust anyone who has never released anything credible in the past.”

He further urged the users to be very careful about fake jailbreak websites. “Don’t get your hopes up,” he tweeted, “But also don’t just download anything.. it seems like a very smart thing to do to distribute a new virus.”

Jeff Benjamin of iDownloadBlog said in a post Tuesday that any claim about an iOS jailbreak that lacked word from respectable members of the Chronic Dev Team or the iPhone Dev Team was “almost always fake.”

“Suppose an iPhone 5 jailbreak does drop on the 22nd, and it does work? If so, I will happily apologize to the man behind the Dream JB, and create a post outlining how wrong I was for lumping his project in with all of the other fakes that we’ve seen over the years,” Benjamin wrote.

“This guy claims that he’s a ‘one man army,’ which is fine. But explain to me why it took a literal Dream Team of talented hackers to orchestrate the last Absinthe jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1?” he added.

Dream JB describes himself:

“My identity will remain an obscurity. I am not affiliated with any known dev team. This project is individual and solely run by me alone. I am here to show the world that the source of an exploit or jailbreak can be from outside the norm.”

According to him, he is a university student, currently in the middle of writing his final exams. However, he says although he has his priorities, he does his best “to keep you all in the loop with the timeline of events and the release.”

[Tutorial] How To Install Cydia On A Jailbroken iPhone,iPad or iPod Touch Running iOS 6.

iOS 6 has been out for quite some time now and jailbreak devs are working really hard to make a user-friendly jailbreak for the masses.But until then there is a work around one can use to install Cydia on A4 devices.

Before you proceed,please note that your A4 device is already jailbroken with Redsn0w.You can read about the procedure here before you try it out.

Guide for people using a Mac

Step 1: On your iOS device, go to Settings >Wi-Fi > and click the arrow next to your connected Wi-Fi router. Find your IP address for your Wi-Fi connection. In my example, my IP is 192.168.1.100

Step 2: On a computer connected to the same Wi-Fi network, open the Terminal app.

Step 3: In terminal type: ssh root@192.168.1.100 (be sure to change the IP address to match your iOS device’s IP)

Step 4: After a few seconds, it should connect, and prompt you for your iOS device’s password. The password is alpine

Step 5: Once connected, paste the following into the terminal:

wget -q -O /tmp/cyinstall.sh http://downloads.kr1sis.net/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 /tmp/cyinstall.sh && /tmp/cyinstall.sh

Step 6: After a minute or so of scrolling prompts, your iOS device should reboot, and Cydia will be installed. If you get any permission errors on the terminal, just ignore them.

Guide for people using Windows

Step 1 :Download putty

Step 2 : You need to be connected to a WiFi network. Go To Settings > WiFi > Tap the blue arrow next to your WiFi network and see your IP address.

Step 3 : Open putty in your computer (your computer and iDevice should be connected to the same wifi network) and enter your IP address as the username.

Step 4 : Putty will ask if you want to connect. Type ‘yes’ and it’ll ask for a password. Type alpine.

Step 5 : Type

wget -q -O /tmp/cyinstall.sh http://downloads.kr1sis.net/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 /tmp/cyinstall.sh && /tmp/cyinstall.sh

[Tutorial] How To Install Siri on iPhone 3GS/4 & iPod Touch 4 running iOS 5

On December 23, 2011, Hacker chpwn posted,

“Spire is my (along with Ryan Petrich) new tool for installing Siri on previously unsupported, but jailbroken, devices. Spire is a small download, but while installing it will download Siri itself (directly from Apple). Spire is available in Cydia right now — go get it! This will use about 100 MB of data, so please connect to Wi-Fi before installing.”

However, Spire is not a complete solution. Apple still requires authorization to use Siri, so information from an iPhone 4S is still required. To insert this information, Spire allows you to enter your own proxy server address. I’ve put up a list of my ideas on how you might get access to a proxy; hopefully you can figure something out.

Spire uses a new method to obtain the files necessary for Siri, so it doesn’t have the copyright issues encountered by previous attempts. Similarly, rather than directing all traffic through a specific proxy server (and the associated privacy issues), Spire allows you to specify your own proxy server.”

This was considered to be very easy… but it wasn’t.

All of you must have headed down to google and search”What to write in Spire Proxy Address?”

chpwn’s blog says –

  • Own an iPhone 4S too: Maybe you already own an iPhone 4S, and just want Siri on another device of yours. This is simple; you can just use the above proxy yourself.
  • Find a friend: Maybe your friend has an iPhone 4S and will let you use their authentication tokens (maybe in exchange for some cool SiriProxy plugins). Then, you can share the authentication. Or, maybe you gave your relative your old iPhone when you got your iPhone 4S: now you can share your token and give them Siri.
  • Pay up: It’s very likely that soon we will see for-pay services online to rent you some space on a Siri proxy, attached to one of their iPhone 4S devices. I haven’t seen anything like this yet, but I’ll keep my eye out, and I would encourage anyone who is interested to set something like this up.
  • And now for something completely different: As I suggested earlier, you might be able to replace Siri entirely. A simple method might be to use Google Chrome’s speech “API” hooked up to some code to decode the Siri requests and parse Google’s result. Or, someone could hook it up to some logic backends like many of the clones available on Android: the possibilities are endless.

The facts are:

  1. Owning an iPhone 4S is a dumb suggestion considering that many of us forget our iPods when we get our hands on an iPhone.
  2. Find A Friend: What the hell is an authentication token?
  3. Nobody wants to pay.

A better way to install Siri on your iPod 4 or iPhone 4 is to:

  1. Head over to cydia and add the repo: repo.siriport.ru
  2. Download it.(95-100 MB). For ipad download ipad version.
  3. Open settings and head over to siriport.ru.
  4. There will be an option install certificate.
  5. Safari will open and then install certificate.
  6. Reboot Device and then go to settings and general and siri.
  7. Switch it on.

Congratulations you’ve installed Siri. (It will take a minimum of 15 minutes to a maximum of 8 hours to work).

If it still doesnt work, Open ifile and delete com.apple.assistant.plist from var/mobile/library/preferences.After deleting, Siri should work immediately.

Stay tuned for more such posts.

[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)

[Tutorial] How To Install Siri (GUI Only) On iPhone 4 And iPod touch Running iOS 5

Siri has finally been ported over to other iOS Devices and, unlike last time, there is a way you can install it right now,Though we DO NOT RECOMMEND IT.We suggest that you wait until @chpwn releases it.

How To Install Siri GUI On iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G

Step 1: You should already be Jailbroken on iOS5.If you’re a beginner just leave a comment in the comment section.

Step 2: Download files required for the Siri port to iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G. You will have to find these files yourself as we wont be able to share these files with you.

Step 3: Using a file explorer for your iOS device, copy over the AssistantServices.frameworkfolder you downloaded in Step 2 to Root > System > Library > PrivateFrameworks after plugging in your device to your computer via USB.

Step 4: Transfer all files from the Springboard folder in Step 2 to Root > System > Library > CoreServices > Springboard.app on your iOS device.

Step 5: Using iFile (you can get it from Cydia), open the .plist file for your iOS device fromSystem > Library > CoreServices > Springboard.app. It will be named N81AP for iPod touch 4G and N9x for iPhone 4 (where x may be 0, 1, 2).

Step 6: Add a new property list named assistant to the .plist file and set its class as Booleanwhile setting its value as YES.

Step 7: Add the following to the .plist file:

assistant

Step 8: Respring your iOS device.

If you followed the steps correctly, Siri’s GUI will be installed on your iOS device. You can hold the Home button to activate it. Once again, we remind you that voice commands don’t work yet since Apple’s servers don’t accept voice command input from iPhone 4 or iPod touch 4G.

ENJOY !
