iPad 2 iOS 4.3.1 Untethered Jailbreak Imminent

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, iPad, Jailbreak, Rants & Raves

We have some huge expectation from Chronic Dev when it comes to the iPad 2 jailbreak. It seems they are too active to do it for us. iPad 2 users are too curious to get 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak.

Chronic Dev Team key member Joshua Hill aka @p0sixninja seems optimistic enough about untethered iPad 2 jailbreak. That is what he has tweeted:

A lot of progress has been made in the past few days, but we’re still working on dumping iPad2 BootROM. No ETA. Timelines are unpredictable when your working with new and unknown hardware

Its a great news that they have made a lot of progress. But let us mention that we are not creating any hype. Its just to tell that iPad 2 jailbreak is imminent and sooner or later you will get it. So be patient.

Untethered iOS 4.3.1 exploit for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad1 and iPod Touch3G and 4G is developed by Stefan Esser (@i0n1c) who is a security expert. If you unaware, the hacker jumped to the iPhone jailbreaking scene for the very first time. He found a vulnerability, developed an exploit and handed it to the iPhone Dev Team. After that, the Dev Team tested it and used it behind their tools and released Redsn0w 0.9.6PwnageTool 4.3Sn0wbreeze 2.5 also uses the same exploit released by iH8sn0w for Windows users. So its clear that Stefan Esser’s exploit do not work on iPad 2 thats why we are waiting for Greenpois0n RC7 by Chronic Dev Team.

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Download, How To, iPhone, Jailbreak

iPhone Dev Team has released Ultrasn0w 1.2.1 unlock for iOS 4.3.1. The unlock tool can be used with iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. Its not a new unlock, it can only unlock lower basebands whose unlock was already possible but broken on iOS 4.3.1. Ultrsn0w 1.2.1 WILL NOT unlock higher basebands whose unlock is not possible right now.

If you have upgraded to iOS 4.3.1 firmware and jailbroken you device with PwnageTool 4.3 or Sn0wbreeze 2.5 and requires an unlock then you can use Ultrasn0w 1.2.1.

Compatible basebands with Ultrasn0w 1.2.1:
iPhone 4: 01.59.00 iPhone 3GS: 04.26.08 / 05.11.07 / 05.12.01 / 05.13.04 / 06.15.00
DO NOT USE WITH the following basebands:
iPhone 4: 02.10.04 / 03.10.01 / 04.10.01 iPhone 3GS: 05.14.02 / 05.15.04 / 05.15.04 / 05.16.01 / 05.16.02
Remember you need to have a jailbroken device with PwnageTool 4.3 and Sn0wbreeze 2.5.

How to Enable Multi-Touch Gestures in iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone 4 Using Cydia Hack

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

We have previously showed you a way to enable multitouch gestures in iOS 4.3.1 using a manual method to SSH through the device but thanks to Cydia Hacks that can fix the issue and do all the dirty work on behalves of you. All you need is a jailbroken iPhone and make sure, currently the tweak only works with iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G.

Step 1: Search for MT Gestures via ModMyi repo Step 2: Install / respring and its done You can now do the following three gestures using four or five fingers:
  • Pinch to home screen
  • Swipe up for Multitasking bar
  • Swipe left/right to switch apps.

How to Enable Multi-Touch Gestures in iOS 4.3.1 for iPhone 4, iPod Touch and iPad

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

Remember the four and five finger multi-touch gestures shown off by Apple in the iOS 4.3 Beta for iPad. However, these features were only meant for the developers and never made it to the final public release of iOS 4.3.

Now, there is a way to enable multitouch gestures in iOS 4.3.1. All you need is a jailbroken iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch or iPad running iOS 4.3.1 and some tweaking.

We will be editing some plist files in this tutorial. Windows users can use plist editor while Mac users can use TextWrangler. If you have Xcode installed then no need for an additional application. I’ll be using iFile app which is available on Cydia.

There is a simple tweak available in Cydia which you can simply search for and run check it out here

Instructions:

Step 1: Navigate to Root > var > mobile > Library > Preferences > com.apple.springboard.plist Copy this file to your computer and add the following two lines of code:
<key>SBUseSystemGestures</key>
<true/>
Step 2: Navigate to Root > System > Library > CoreServices > SpringBoard.app > N90AP.plist

Update: N90AP.plist exists on iPhone 4 only. The corresponding file for iPhone 3GS is N88AP.plist, iPod Touch is N81AP.plist and for iPad K48AP.plist. Usually, there’s just one of this file’s kind in the specified folder, so it should not be very difficult to identify.

Add the following two lines:
<key>multitasking-gestures</key>
<true/>

That’s it. We’re done. After you have saved these edit files put them back in their locations and restart or respring your iOS device for the changes to take effect.

You can now do the following three gestures using four fingers, though in my opinion the iPhone or iPod Touch screens are too small for these many fingers.

  • Pinch to home screen
  • Swipe up for Multitasking bar
  • Swipe left/right to switch apps.
