[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.

[Tutorial] How To Root Galaxy Nexus GT-I9250 on Android 4.1 Jellybean

NoteYou need to have your bootloader unlocked and fastboot setup on your computer to make this work.And ofcourse,you need to be on android 4.1 Jellybean.

We at T101 finally managed to find a solution that worked, and the familiar root permission prompt finally popped up. If you lost root access after upgrading to Jellybean or maybe you wanna root your new Galaxy Nexus running JellyBean,then continue reading (this was tested on a GSM Galaxy Nexus I9250, but should work on other variants as well.We are not responsible if ‘you’ screw things up).

Here’s a guide that’ll work for sure.

  1. Download your favorite recovery, say ClockworkMod Touch.
  2. Download JB-SuperSU.zip from this link.
  3. While booted into Android, push JB-SuperSU.zip to your Galaxy Nexus’s /sdcard using your computer, or download it straight from the device.You could also use adb to push the file (ADVANCED USERS ONLY)
  4. Reboot into the bootloader buy powering down and booting up while holding both volume buttons and power until the bootloader comes up.It’ll look like this .
  5. Flash the custom recovery by issuing this command from your computer:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.0.2-maguro.img (or whatever the recovery name is that you downloaded in step 1)Note: For some reason I can’t get the recovery to stick anymore – upon reboot, the Nexus reverts back to its stock recovery. If someone knows how to fix this, please leave a comment in this post.
    Renaming /system/recovery-from-boot.p after obtaining root did the trick – you have to remount /system as rw first, of course.
  6. Now that you have the custom recovery installed, scroll down to Recovery mode in the bootloader menu using the volume down button and press the Power button to enter it.
  7. Select Install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard, select JB-SuperSU.zip that you pushed in step 3.
  8. Reboot your phone.
  9. Dance around the room.

[Tutorial] How to Install Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich On A PC

After the preliminary work here (which I recommend you read through), the porting of Ice Cream Sandwich to PC has advanced a lot further, and we now have a starting installation guide (the first available). There is now a furthered port to 4.0.3 ICS, which you can see a demonstration of here:


There has also been an installation tutorial released which you can use to install Android on your own system, which you can see below:

Step 1. First of all, you need to download one of the required installation images from here.

Step 2. Burn the image to a disc or flash it to a USB, then reboot your machine and boot from your selected media.

Step 3. You’ll be greeted with a boot menu, and at this point you can hit install if you’re ready.

Step 4. Once the installer appears, you’ll be asked where to install Android to. Select the partition or drive you wish to install to and press Enter.

Step 5. You’ll then be asked if you wish to format the partition, and given different options of formatting. Choose the partition format you wish to use, if any.

Step 6. Once the partition has been formatted, you’re given the option to install a bootloader. Press yes to install one.

Step 7. You can then choose whether to make the /system directory writeable. Press yes, as long as you don’t mind a slightly longer installation time.

Step 8. Now you need to install a fake SD card. What this does is create a separate image which is recognised as the SD card inserted into your Android device. Select this option and press Enter.

Step 9. You can then select the amount of memory you wish to give to your SD card. Press Enter and your SD card will begin to install. This may take a little while.

Step 10. Once the SD card is installed, just reboot your system and boot from the drive/partition/usb you installed Android to and your Android system should be up and running!

[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 !

[Tutorial] How to Install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich On Nexus S

GOOD NEWS for Google Nexus S owners,there is a team of developers out there working on getting a port of the new Android OS over to your device. If you’re one of the brave, let’s get you started on getting this thing set up!

Be aware that this isn’t an official release, in fact it is an SDK port, so it is bound to have some problems. The following are a list of bugs:

  • 3G(for some)
  • Data
  • NFC
  • Panorama Mode
  • Camera will force close for the 1st time
Procedure :

Step 1: Backup everything on the storage (SD card) of your phone. Plug it in to your computer and mount it as a drive. Copy everything off into a folder on your computer. You will lose everything during the next step.

Step 2: For those of you new (and even old) to rooting your phone, I am going to choose the simplest way for you to go about this. The good guys over at XDA Developers Forums have created a a batch file, which is a file that executes a list of commands, that will handle rooting your phone. Its simple, but it requires Windows XP/Vista/7.

  • Download the current stable version here.
  • Extract the files to a folder on your desktop.
  • Connect your phone to your PC and install one of the two supplied drivers.
  • You will choose either 32-bit or 64-bit and that depends on what your PC is. If you are unsure, choose the 64-bit installer first.
  • Make sure you have USB debugging turned off.
  • Execute the run.bat file as Administrator and follow the instructions.

One you are finished and you had no errors, your phone will have the following:

  • Your phone will now have an unlocked bootloader.
  • Your phone will now have Clockwork Mod Recovery installed (this is most important).
  • Your phone will now be rooted.

Step 3:

  • Now you will want to download the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM from here.
  • Copy the .ZIP to the root of your internal space on the phone.
  • Reboot into recovery mode by powering off your device completely then hold Power + Volume Up at the same time while powering back up.
  • One inside Clockwork Mod Recovery, choose ‘wipe data/factory reset’.
  • Then choose ‘install zip from sdcard’.
  • Select ‘choose zip from sdcard’.
  • Toggle down to the zip file and hit your power button.
  • You’ll confirm the install and let it do its thing.

Step 4: Enjoy your new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered Nexus S

Here’s a video demonstrating ICS on the Nexus S :
