Download Sn0wbreeze 2.9.14 to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 and Preserve Baseband


Those who haven't heard yet that Sn0wbreeze 2.9.14 can do many useful things better download it here. You will be able to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3, try to downgrade if you have SHSH blobs saved by iFaith.

Downgrade is very important now because there is no untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 but there is evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6.1.2 and lower.

Also you can try to preserve iPhone baseband while updating or jailbreaking to unlock iPhone using Ultrasn0w or Gevey or any other solution that depends on baseband.


This latest version of sn0wbreeze also supports APTicket validation, in light of the recent issues with APTickets. If you’re aWindows user (sn0wbreeze is for Windows only), and are looking for a way to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 on your pre-A5 device with a tethered jailbreak, then this latest version of sn0wbreeze is your ticket to freedom.

You can download the latest version of sn0wbreeze 2.9.14 here and launch it on Windows. This tool is not supported on Mac computers so don't forget about this.

As usual, though most people rely on factory unlocks these days, sn0wbreeze is great for preserving your baseband on devices used with UltraSn0w to unlock your device. Again, just to reiterate, this is a tethered jailbreak only. Head over to our downloads page to download sn0wbreeze version 2.9.14 right now if you’re at all interested.

How to Unlock iPhone 4S With X-Sim running iOS 6.x.x


The days of SIM interposer unlock are not yet over! X-SIM (not R-Sim Pro)  is the “new boy” in town to unlock iPhone 4S running on iOS 6, and this time they have beaten the Gevey Team.


I must admit that the iPhone unlocking scene wasn’t as exciting as before. The software unlock ‘ultrasn0w’ was the ultimate solution to unlock iPhones, and it constantly giving Apple headaches to patch exploits discovered by hackers every time a new iOS update was released. iPhone 4′s baseband 1.59.00 was the last baseband version exploitable by hackers and ever since then, Apple had pretty much closed all the holes.

That’s how SIM interposer started to flood the markets – a tiny device which you ‘interpose’ together with your SIM card. Gevey was very successful in producing this type of unlock. It was a practical solution and many were able to unlock their iPhones, but as usual it wasn’t too long before Apple started patching all the exploits used by this device.

Enough introduction for the newbies out there – let’s return to the original topic – X-SIM is the new “Gevey SIM” by becoming the first SIM interposer to unlock iPhone 4S running on iOS 6 with baseband 3.0.04.
Some of the features mentioned on their website:
  • Supports all iPhone 4S baseband
  • Real plug-n-play, no dialing of 112, no jailbreaking, no additional software needed
  • No need to trim your SIM card
  • Supports 3G, EDGE and MMS
Well… All the usual stuff. They have just released version 4.08 yesterday which fixed some bugs and added some features. This is a great solution for those with iPhone 4S which can’t be factory unlocked yet. Just FYI, AT&T iPhone 3G/3GS/4/4S/5 can now be officially unlocked. We’ve also recently added more worldwide mobile networks that support factory unlocking.

You can expect Apple to find ways to block the X-SIM on the next iOS update – so if you depend on an unlock, never update your iPhone blindly, well, not unless if it’s already factory unlocked.

How to Unlock iPhone 3G For Free Using Baseband Exploits

The iPhone world has been clamoring for this one for awhile. And what better way to start the new year then by playing around with the Dev Team's newest creation--an official unlock for the iPhone 3G. We'll run through the basics of this wonderful little tool and show you exactly how you can jailbreak and unlock your phone. You'll be able to run as many third-party applications as you want on your device. And more importantly, you'll be able to use your iPhone on any cell phone carrier you want.
What's an Unlock?
Unlocking your phone allows you to use it on any carrier you want, not just AT&T. You'll pop out your AT&T SIM card and insert the SIM card of a different carrier. The iPhone doesn't allow you to do this normally, so a little bit of hacking is involved.
Is it safe? Will I break my iPhone?
Possibly. There's always the worry that the unlocking process will royally screw up your phone--but the only way to deal with that is to read the situations of others who have attempted the procedure before you. As long as you follow the instructions closely, you will greatly reduce your chances of bricking (screwing up) your iPhone. Beyond that, once you've unlocked your iPhone, you'll want to approach new iPhone updates with suspicion. Don't just click "update" in iTunes--wait for the various iPhone hackers to release (and safely test) new tools that will allow you to redo the same procedure on the new firmware.
Is it easy to do? Hacking an iPhone sounds difficult!
It is. It used to be difficult, but a number of one-button (or two-button) programs have emerged that greatly simplify the process of doing evil things to your iPhone. Don't worry. Even a cat could unlock an iPhone at this point.
How do I do it?
1) Upgrade your iPhone to the 2.2 Firmware
This one's easy. Fire up iTunes and update your phone to the latest update, 2.2. If you've already done this, then you are one step ahead of the game. If not, you accomplish this task by clicking the "Update" button. Magic! Be sure to backup/sync your phone prior to doing so, and write down any note, programs, or settings you want to keep!
2) Pwn your Phone
Download Quickpwn. This is the application you'll use to jailbreak your phone prior to unlocking.
Connect your iPhone to your PC all USB-style and fire up Quickpwn. The program is as self-explanatory as a jailbreaking application could be. Select your phone. Select your phone's firmware. Install Cydia or Installer (we prefer the former). Follow the directions. Enjoy a hot cup of tea while you wait.
3) Install the application repositories
If you opted to install Cydia, fire up the application on your newly jailbroken iPhone and add the following application repository: http://apt9.yellowsn0w.com/
If you went for Installer, add this repository: http://i.yellowsn0w.com/
If you have no idea how to add a repository, fiddle around in each application's settings and options menus. It'll be there, trust us.
4) Install yellowsn0w
Use either Cydia or Installer to install yellowsn0w. Once the server finally lets you do so (it's getting hammered right now), run the application. Then turn off your iPhone. Slap in the SIM card from the new carrier you want to use. Turn on your iPhone. If the carrier doesn't pop up after a bit of a wait, repeat the process to remove the SIM and try doing it again.
5) Crazy Troubleshooting
Switching to T-Mobile? Turn off 3G on your iPhone settings (under Networking) before switching SIM cards.
Turn off any PINs on your SIM card before making the switch.
Make sure you're using the latest version of yellowsn0w. It should update in the Cydia/Installer menus automatically, but you can always make sure that the available version matches the newly released version by hitting up the official Dev Team blog.
We'll be monitoring the 3G unlock all day, and we'll let you know if we come across anything else! And you can always leave comments about the success / destruction of your iPhone 3G below.

iPhone 5S Home Button Will Not Be A Fingerprint Scanner?

Some photos originally shared by Sonny Dickson showing alleged parts for Apple's upcoming iPhone 5S. While most of the parts have been seen several times in the past, the new fairly high-quality photos provide a continuing look at the parts, which include the nano-SIM tray and speaker button, as well as flex cables for the home button, charger connector, WiFi component, and speaker.

Home button flex cable

Perhaps most notably, the home button flex cable continues to show no signs of a fingerprint scanner. Evidence surfacing in the iOS 7 Beta 4 code earlier this week showed references to a tutorial instructing iPhone users how to use a fingerprint scanner, apparently located on the device's home button.

The parts that we are happy to pass along to you are said to include the Apple iPhone 5S card holder, the charger connector flex for the device, the front camera flex, the Home button flex, speaker button, vibrator flex, Wi-Fi flex, On-Off flex cable and the Speaker flex. According to the latest word we have, Apple will introduce the Apple iPhone 5C and the Apple iPhone 5S on September 28th with a launch on the 27th of the same month.
One complication with part leaks this year is Apple's apparent plans to launch both an iPhone 5S and a new lower-cost plastic iPhone. Suppliers and other sources may in some cases be confusing which parts are from which device.

Earlier this year, French website Nowhereelse also posted photos of alleged iPhone 5S parts, including the home button, vibrator, and volume/mute flex cables, with no apparent evidence of a fingerprint scanner. The iPhone 5S is expected to launch sometime in the fall alongside the heavily rumored low-cost iPhone, potentially named the iPhone 5C.

Here are more photos of iPhone 5S parts:
