HOW TO: Temporary Fix Battery Drain & iPhone overheat After Installing Ultrasn0w On Baseband 6.15

iPhone battery HOW TO: Temporary Fix Battery Drain After Installing Ultrasn0w On Baseband 6.15

If you are experiencing battery drain after installing ultrasn0w on baseband 6.15, here is a note from sherif hashim on the issue:

On a very important side note, before anyone starts to complain about battery drainage issues after installing the new ultrasn0w on the 6.15.00 updated BB, the culprit here is not ultrasn0w, it’s the hacktivation process (activating the phone by pwnage tool or redsn0w rather than using an official carrier sim to do so) that u mostly did while jailbreaking.

The 4.1 and 4.2.1 ipsws unlike their old ancestors, seem to keep looking for valid push certificates all the time, either thru your wifi, or thru your cellular data network (which u only have after installing ultrasn0w and hence u accuse it) , this can be seen clearly if u have a cellular working data plan for 3g or edge and you watched the settings > general > usage > cellular network data (sent & received are continuously increasing even without using any internet traffics on the phone) , this will also render the phone going hot even in stand by mode and also very rapid battery drainage occurs plus consuming ur data if you were not on an unlimited plan.

So to resolve this, you either:
A) try to activate the phone using the official sim if u have it (even if the sim itself is old and not working) , or borrow it from a friend if it’s possible, by any means, try to have an access to one and use it

B) if A is not feasible, u can install SBsettings from featured cydia packages and turn wifi and data off when u r not using it (shuts down both 3g and edge) , till C is done

C) there is a very nice module being worked on by a trusted jailbreak app dev, namely @sbingner, which will resolve that issue for those having it, the details of which shouldn’t be disclosed until he finishes his awesome work, till then, either use A or B to resolve the issue if it exists for you

How to Use AirPrint with Any Printer

With iOS 4.2.1, Apple introduced the brilliant AirPrint. Unfortunately, you need to spend money on a few specific printer models if you want to enjoy AirPrint. Not anymore, thanks to a very simple hack that lets you use AirPrint on any printer, including printers that are not even wifi capabale.
If you’re on a Mac, you can use the hack called AirPrint Hacktivator, which like its name suggests, will enable printing via AirPrint in a matter of seconds…
1. Download the latest version of AirPrint Hacktivator
2. Unzip the AirPrint Hacktivator to your desktop or Applications folder, then run it
3. Slide the toggle switch in the app to ON, then enter your administrator password when prompted
4. Click OK to confirm
5. Now, go to System Preferences -> Print & Fax
6. Click the minus symbol to remove your printer, then add it back and check the box share it on your network (see video below for instructions)

Nice hack, isn’t it?

HOW TO: Create A Custom Firmware and Jailbreak An iPhone 4 Running On iOS 4.2.1 Using An Unofficial PwngeTool Bundle

As always, we don’t recommend you to use unofficial bundles. You should wait on the iPhone DevTeam to drop an official tool. Here’s the story: this is not just a random bundle found on the internet. We made this bundle with our own two hands – and we used them to pull out all of our hair.
It’s still a tethered jailbreak, and you will need a way to boot into the jailbreaking kernel – redsn0w will not help you in this case.
NOTE: if you don’t like to mess with your iPhone – and even if you do – we don’t recommend you to use this bundle. We are not aware all ALL its bugs, so anything could go wrong at any time. We are not responsible for your mess-up. Wait on the iPhone DevTeam to drop an official release.
Requirments:
HOW TO Create A Custom Firmware:
1. Download everything on your desktop and extract archives
2. Right click on PwnageTool.app and ‘Show Package Contents’
3. Browse to Contents>Resources>Firmware Bundles> and copy the iOS 4.2.1 bundle you downloaded
4. Now close the window, load PwnageTool and create your custom firmware ( MAKE SURE you install OpenSSH in the process )
5. Once you have the custom firmware , load iTunes and click alt+restore ( hold the alt/option key and click on restore )
6. Browse for the custom firmware, select it, and wait for your iPhone to be restored
7. That’s it. Now you have a jailbroken iPhone 4 running on iOS 4.2.1 – except your iPhone won’t boot in the jailbreaking kernel and now the fun begins…
HOW TO Boot Into The Jailbreaking Kernel:
1. Download and install MacPorts
2. Install libUSB. Open terminal
sudo port install libusb
3. Duplicate your custom firmware and create a folder on your desktop called ‘ Tethereboot’ ( or whatever you want to call it – doesn’t matter )
4. Download the Thetherboot utility and put it in the Tethereboot folder
5. Take the duplicate custom firmware, change the extension from .ipsw to .zip and unarchive
6. Inside there’s two files that you need:
  • iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu
  • kernelcache.release.n90
Take them out and put them in the Tetherboot folder along side the tethereboot utility you just downloaded
tetheredboot HOW TO: Jailbreak An iPhone 4 Running On iOS 4.2.1 Using An Unofficial PwngeTool Bundle
7. Open Terminal , put your iPhone in DFU mode and type:
cd /User/Desktop/Tetherboot/
./tetheredboot iBSS.n90ap.RELEASE.dfu kernelcache.release.n90
tetheredboot 2 HOW TO: Jailbreak An iPhone 4 Running On iOS 4.2.1 Using An Unofficial PwngeTool Bundle
8. Ok, that’s it. Your iPhone will boot into the jailbreaking kernel.
9. Now you will have to SSH in and add Cydia by following this tutorial.
NOTE: again, if you don’t know what you’re doing DON’T DO THIS. Wait for the iPhone DevTeam to drop an official release

Dev-Team Releases Unofficial PwnageTool Bundle for iPhone 3GS

Update #3:  For those Mac users with an old-bootrom 3GS who really know what they’re doing, here’s a minimal 3GS 4.2.1 bundle that will get you to 4.2.1 without updating your baseband.  Be sure to uncheck “Activate the iPhone” using Expert mode.  To actually jailbreak after you’ve restored with the help of that bundle, please use redsn0w.  If you don’t know how to drop a bundle into PwnageTool.app, please hold off on 4.2.1 until it’s untethered for everyone

HOW TO: Update / Unlock iPhone 3GS / 3G Baseband 06.15.00 with Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 on iOS 4.2.1 / 4.1 [Windows & Mac]

The new redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 is out. It gives both Windows and OSX users the ability to flash the iPad 06.15 baseband on iPhone3G or iPhone3GS. It fetches the baseband files directly from Apple for now (the only IPSW you ever point it at is the stock IPSW for the FW on your iPhone right now). There may be a long delay while it’s doing this (their servers are currently getting pounded).

WARNING — YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!  PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF UPDATING TO 06.15.00
  1. There is no way to come back down from 06.15, and there’s no hiding the baseband version from Apple. You’ll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way.
  2. If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won’t be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn’t update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway).
  3. Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won’t ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail).  You’ll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you’re unlocker you should already be doing that).
********************************************
Unlockers have been reporting mixed results about GPS functionality at 06.15.00

Update #5: Unlockers have been reporting mixed results about GPS functionality at 06.15.00. Until we can track down what differentiates those who retain GPS vs. those who lose it, be conservative and assume you’ll lose GPS at 06.15.00. As we work on finding the cause (and possibly a fix), please report your personal findings in our comments section. (Update: early indications are that while 06.15.00 is capable of GPS, it will require some further hacks. But please still be conservative and assume you will lose GPS at 06.15, in case the hacks don’t work).

Old School Cool...

A really good friend of mine had me tattoo this wicked badass traditional reaper on his forearm. I love this tattoo, and the more I look at it, it becomes one of my favorite tattoos I've ever done. Thanks for getting this buddy, I think I might like it more than you!

St. Michael Tattoo...

Mike, who's a really nice kid, came in for his second tattoo by me. He recently joined the Army, and his first tattoo was a skull wearing a beret with crossed M4s. He was being shipped off to war in a few days, and decided to get St. Michael, the Angel of Protection, inked on his forearm. He was very happy with the finished piece as was I. By the time of this post, he would of been sent to the war all ready. So, God be with you, good luck, and keep your head down bro!

"Live, Laugh, Love" Tattoo...

This girl came in for a variation of a popular tattoo on her side. She wanted her favorite flowers to be mixed in with her favorite quote, and she wanted it BIG! I had all ready done one small tattoo on her, so this was a huge step up in size and pain factor! She sat great, and the final product reflects what happens when you combine a good idea, with talent, and someone who is willing to endure a good bit of pain for something they really desire.
And this woman wanted to reproduce an image from a Christmas greeting card she was fond of. Its of a hound hunting a stuffed animal, and is one of the more un-ordinary tattoos that I've done in a while!

Fighter Tattoos...

I recently had some fellas come in the shop who like to fight. The kid above is a mixed martial arts fighter, and wanted the seven deadly sins tattooed down his back. We did it in one sitting, which is a testament to his pain tolerance, because the only other tattoo he had was a relatively small one on his arm. It's always fun getting the opportunity to tattoo someone who has a really interesting job or hobby, and I enjoyed hearing fight stories for most of the session. He was a really, really nice kid too!
My man pictured above is training to be a boxer, and came in for his second tattoo from me. The first was a tribute to the city of Philadelphia. Also a really great guy, and I always enjoy talking to him. If I were to become a boxer, I'd want to do it in Philly too...home of Rocky, right?!

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Original DEV-TEAM BLOG


Ultra-recycle 
Today we’re pleased to announce our free carrier unlock for iPhone3G/3GS owners with a baseband later than 05.13.04.  The unlock for that baseband exploited the AT+XAPP command, thanks to a crash initially discovered by @sherif_hashim (@Oranav also found this crash).  So what hole are we exploiting today, since Apple closed that AT+XAPP hole?  Well, we’re exploiting the exact same hole!

It turns out that the very first iPad firmware 3.2.2 has baseband version 06.15.00 still vulnerable to AT+XAPP. The iPad baseband is built for the exact same baseband chip as the iPhone3G/3GS — they’re fully compatible!  Some of us have been running 06.15 for weeks now on our iPhones in preparation for this release.


Since 06.15 is a higher version than 05.14 or 05.15 (where AT+XAPP is gone), anyone stuck at those versions can simply upgrade to 06.15 to unlock again!  Luckily for us, Apple *still* provides the iPad FW 3.2.2 with this vulnerable baseband right from their own servers. (Grab it now, before they take it down!)
We’ve been busy updating both PwnageTool and redsn0w to make the baseband update as seamless as possible.
  1. First up is “PwnageTool 4.1.3 Unlock Edition”.  It has a special dialog box which will ask you if you want to update to the iPad baseband.  You must already have the iPad 3.2.2 IPSW on your computer (see the above link)….so just point PwnageTool at it (or let it find it on its own if you’re in “simple” mode).
  2. Directly after PwnageTool 4.1.3 is available, the official ultrasn0w repo http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com/ will be updated with ultrasn0w 1.2, which covers iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00 and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and now 06.15.00.
  3. Finally, we’ll release an update to redsn0w today for those without Macs and can’t run PwnageTool.  The new redsn0w will give you the option to update your baseband to 06.15 too.
WARNING — YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!  PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF UPDATING TO 06.15.
  1. There is no way to come back down from 06.15, and there’s no hiding the baseband version from Apple.  You’ll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way.
  2. If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won’t be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn’t update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway).
  3. Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won’t ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail).  You’ll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you’re unlocker you should already be doing that).
Certainly don’t update to 06.15 if you don’t need to!  Only do this if you need the unlock and you’re stuck on 05.14 or 05.15, and you’re willing to assume the above risks.


This PwnageTool also contains a 4.2.1 bundle for iPhone3G owners…for all else, it’s still only 4.1.  If you have an iPhone3GS with an old bootrom, the new redsn0w will handle 4.2.1 for you (in fact it covers 4.2.1 for all devices, even though some of them are still tethered at 4.2.1 until @comex can work some untethering magic).  iPhone3GS users with old bootroms who want to go to 4.2.1 should not use this PwnageTool!  


Update to stock 4.2.1 first, then use the upcoming redsn0w to update your baseband.

Download AirPrint Activator for Windows

We all enjoyed iOS 4.2.1 on our iOS devices: it brings multitasking for iPad, folder, AirPlay (sort of) and wirelessly iOS printing which is called AirPrint. But AirPrint is currently on Mac OS X only and works with some HP-printers. Mac users can use Printopia to enable AirPrint for non-compatible printers. Windows users can do the same now!

For Windows users who want AirPrint to work with their computer there is a new tool works on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows called ‘AirPrint Activator.’

Click here to enlarge

After downloading the tool from the link below, install and activate AirPrint for Windows. Then you have to have the printer in System Preferences (printer properties) to share. Already, all printers under Windows 32-bit or Windows 64-bit for iOS 4.2.1 and AirPrint available. Please note that AirPrint.exe must be enabled in Windows Firewall. [via 9to5mac]

Digitimes: iPad 2 Will Have USB, FaceTime, New Display

Apple will add 5 new features to the iPad 2: video phone, better mobility, USB port, new display technology and 3-axis gyroscopes.
 and now a Digitimes is reporting what to
FaceTime’s a given, of course. “Better mobility” probably just means a thinner design, which might be a touch trick, given the addition of at least one camera: it could also mean that a 7-inch model is forthcoming, but given how dismissive Steve Jobs was of the form factor, I don’t consider that likely.
The 3-Axis gyroscope is a pretty obvious new addition, given its presence in the iPhone 4. I don’t think a USB port is likely at all. As for a new display, I’m skeptical that Apple can afford a 9.7 inch retina display at the iPad’s current price, but perhaps we’ll be surprised.

Windows Phone 7 unlocker released !!!

Ten years ago the idea of rooting or jailbreaking a phone was nonexistent. Today, if you truly want to harness the entire power of your mobile device; it's an evil, but required step. The newest platform from Microsoft has now been unlocked



and the ability to sideload apps is now possible.
According to the ChevronWP7 blog, WP7 has been unlocked and the operating system is now exposed to the homebrew community.
Today we have an exciting breakthrough for the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community - the ability for anyone to unlock a WP7 device without a Marketplace developer account. Unlocking allows the sideloading of experimental applications that would otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs.
The ability to unlock an OS is a crucial step for any platform. Despite the circumvention, the jailbreaking community can be credited with helping to propel the iPhone into the mainstream by allowing new features and programs to the platform long before Apple made them available.
As with any platform unlocking, you are are cautioned to do so at your own risk. There is always a risk of bricking your device that may void your warranty.

Windows Phone 7 unlocker released

Today we have an exciting breakthrough for the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community - the ability for anyone to unlock a WP7 device without a Marketplace developer account.
Unlocking allows the sideloading of experimental applications that would otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs.
We’ve taken the pain out of the process involved and put together a super simple executable that will allow anyone to unlock any WP7 device on the market using a USB cable and just a couple clicks.
This tool is completely safe and reversible for the phone. (The app even allows you to relock the phone.)
