Untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak for non-A5 devices is now up. I’ll be putting a How to tutorial soon.

Many of you have already been following @pod2g’s blog where he’s been keeping everyone up to date on his progress.  A few days ago, @pod2g gave the untether to both the iPhone devteam and the chronic devteam.  The teams put it into redsn0w 0.9.10 and PwnageTool, and the chronic devteam put it into a Cydia package (the same set of exploits is in all three).

Here are the basic steps for how to get it:
  • The untether is for iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone3GS, iPhone4, iPhone4-CDMA, iPad1, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G
  • If you have one of those devices and are not on 5.0.1 yet, update now!  The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1  If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW!  Once you’re at 5.0.1, use the latest redsn0w 0.9.10 to both jailbreak and untether.
  • If you’re already at 5.0.1 with a tethered jailbreak, you have two choices: either run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that), or install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam.  The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.
  • Some of you are using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration.  If so, do not attempt to install this untether over that setup!  You will most likely get into a reboot cycle.  Do a sync and fresh restore to 5.0.1 then install the jailbreak + untether.

@pod2g is now looking for a way to extend this to A5 devices.  Because those devices cannot use geohot’s limera1n exploit to inject the untether, they require exploits above and beyond those used for this release.  Keep following pod2g on twitter or his blog for any progress reports!

Spire: First Legal Siri Port for All Jailbroken iOS 5 Devices Available Now

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Cydia, Hack, How To, iPad, iPhone, Jailbreak

Siri

Grant Paul a.k.a chpwn and Ryan Petrich have released a legal working Siri port for older jailbroken iOS devices. The tool known as “Spire” and can be installed freely via Cydia. Its not the first and not prefect but all you need is to get access to an iPhone 4S and your own proxy to get the port working. Is been a month since the first Siri protocol cracked and put in the public.

Grant Paul said on his blog:

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.

Spire legal and free but you still need an iPhone 4S authentication key to enter into Spire’s proxy server address. Using SiriProxy, Siri will function in full capacity on all non-4S hardware. A tutorial on how to install your own SiriProxy can be found here.

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. By using this (ancient) SiriProxy fork, you can setup a proxy using your own iPhone 4S to insert the needed information reasonably easily. Other solutions for proxying Siri will be listed here as they are developed — perhaps that sort of proxy might be included in the main SiriProxy repository.

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.

Download Spire via this link if you are on a jailbroken iOS 5 devices.

iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak is Imminent

French hacker pod2g released a video showing off the Untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 5 and 5.0.1. , which appears to be almost complete and ready for prime time.

The highly sought after Untethered jailbreak does not require that the device be connected to a computer each time it needs to be booted. The hacker tweeted:

🙂 iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak demo : http://youtu.be/kp_Mz6rs9fc
And whether the new jailbreak will work on iOS 5.0.1, he tweeted

Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.

First indication of a possible untethered iOS jailbreak came in pod2g’s tweet last month:

Hey jailbreaking friends, I’ve found a bug that can untether iOS 5. Don’t expect a release soon, but I’m gonna work hard in it.

Install Siri Dictation on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4G

Siri Dictation

Since the debut of Siri virtual assistance alongside the iPhone 4S, hackers have been trying hardly to port the feature to older iDevices. There are no hardware limitations but the only concern still that the service needs to connect to Apple servers to get it working.

Siri’s dictation feature has now been made publicly available in Cydia for the iPhone 4, 3GS, Touch 4G and it actually works. Developer Eric Day has released a jailbreak tweak called Siri0us.

“Siri dictation for your iOS 5 devices. No iPhone 4S keys/files required.”

The tweak actually works but sadly with some Ads around.

Add the source http://apt.if0rce.com on Cydia to get the tweak
