Convert iOS 5.1.1 Thethered Jailbreak to Untethered Using Rocky Racoon 5.1.1

Convert iOS 5.1.1 Thethered Jailbreak to Untethered Using Rocky Racoon 5.1.1

All jailbreakers in the world breathed a sigh of relief as Absinthe 2.0 update brought untethered jailbreak for almost all iOS 5.1.1 devices, including the A5 iPhone 4S and iPad 2, and A5X new iPad 3. However some devices including A4 devices already had a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1. Chronic Dev Team has released the Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether package in Cydia to convert a tethered into untethered jailbreak right away. You can check our tutorial on how to use Absinthe 2.0 here

Similar to Corona package that followed Absinthe back for iOS 5.0.1, Rocky Racoon will convert your existing tethered jailbreak to an untethered one without requiring any obstacles or even wiping your content.

To install the package, launch Cydia on your tethered jailbroken iPhone 4, iPad or iPod touch, search for Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether. Install the package.

If you are currently operating an A4 device which has a tethered jailbreak you can use this menthod to update to full untethered jailbreak for iOS version 5.0.1 and for all supported A4 (& lower) devices!

You can quickly access, download & install Corona 5.0.1 Untether via Cydia store for your iPhone 4, iPhone 4 (CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G & iPod Touch 3G provided that iOS 5.0.1 being installed already by following the steps below:

  • Open the Cydia app on your tethered jailbroken device
  • Search for “Corona
  • Hit the “Install” button.

This package will allow your 5.0.1 device to install the untethered exploits and reboot without requiring an external tool like redsn0w, and without having to restore your device, so you get to keep all your apps, contacts, etc.

if you do not currently have access to the Cydia store on your 5.0.1 device, you can use the redsn0w 0.9.10 tool developed by the iPhone Dev team. It is exactly the same set of files as our Cydia package, but bundled with redsn0w for new jailbreak users and/or those who are not already running a tethered jailbreak.

If you have one of the A4 devices listed above and are not using iOS 5.0.1 yet, you can update your iOS version now (though you should not update to 5.0.2 when it is released, or you will lose your jailbreak) or you can wait a few days max for our Corona 5.0 Untether package, which will be available in the Cydia store upon release.

Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak Finally Released

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.
