How to Unlock Any Jailbroken iPhone on Any Firmware and Baseband Using SAM

Unlocking the iPhone 4S, and the iPhone 4 has just got easy using a new unlock which been discovered that actually works for all iPhones and all firmware versions.

The method can be performed on any jailbroken iOS device using SAM package unlock. Here is a full tutorial that shows how to unlock any iPhone on iOS 5 or higher (running any baseband) using the SAM jailbreak package:

Step 1: Add the following repo to your Cydia sources: repo.bingner.com and then install SAM.

Step 2: Open SAM, go to Utilities, and tap Deactivate.

Step 3: Go back to the SAM main menu, and tap More Information. Under SIM Details copy your IMSI number.

Step 4: Remove your SIM, and replace it with the SIM you wish to use.

Step 5: With SAM enabled, tap Method, and select By Country and Carrier. Go back a menu, and select the correct country and then the correct carrier for your SIM card.

Step 6: Go back to More Information, and tap Spoof Real SIM to SAM. Next under SAM Details, delete the current IMSI number, and replace it with the one you copied in step 3.

Step 7: On the SAM main menu go to Utilities, and tap Attempt Activation. Your device should respring if done correctly.

Step 8: Open SAM and disable SAM. Close SAM.

Step 9: Open iTunes and plug in your device to your computer. You may have to unplug it and plug it in a few times. Be patient. You should receive a message stating that it failed to activate your device, but that’s a good thing, click ok. Be patient, and eventually you will see the carrier logo for your new SIM.

Note: From here on out you can freely switch between your original SIM and your new SIM. All you need to do is plug in the device and repeat step 9 to activate your desired SIM.

It’s recommended saving your Activation Ticket for each SIM that you use, as they might come in handy in the future. These can be found at: /var/Root/ibrary/Lockdown and you can access this easily with iFile or via SSH.

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.

iBooks Crashes On Jailbroken iOS Device Fixed [Updated]

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Jailbreak, News

The well-known iPhone hacker Comex and the guy behind Spirit and JailbreakMe, has just find a way to fix iBooks crash which occurs after jailbreaking you iOS device, if you saw this message “There is a problem with the configuration of your iOS Device. Please restore with iTunes and reinstall iBooks“ so your iOS device has been infected.

Comex has announced about this via his twitter by some techy words, anyway it’s expected that Comex will embed some new patches on the upcoming jailbreak tools to fix these crashes.

@Comex: It seems that before opening a DRMed book, iBooks drops an improperly signed binary, tries to execute it, and if it works concludes that the device is jailbroken and refuses to open the book. This is what the binary does: int main() { return 42; }
Later, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team also confirmed the fix:

Update:

The Fix is now availabe on Cydia
  • Add http://repo.insanelyi.com repository in Cydia
  • Install “iBooks Fix”. you are done!
