Jailbreak iPhone 4.0 beta 1

Jailbreak iPhone 4.0 beta 1

We already know that you can jailbreak iPhone 4.0, and the iPhone Dev Team has just released a jailbreak for iPhone 4.0 beta 1. If you have a Mac, and an iPhone 3G then you can jailbreak iPhone 4.0 beta 1 using the redsn0w 0.9.5 software to do so. Note that it is pointless jailbreaking your iPhone 4.0 beta 1 right now because the beta is buggy and there will be a lot more beta releases until the final iPhone 4.0 firmware is released.

To jailbreak iPhone 4.0 beta 1, follow these steps:

1. Download iPhone toolbar, click Downloads and then click the download redsn0w 0.9.5 link.

2. Open redsn0w 0.9.5 and browse for your iPhone1,2_4.0_8A230m_Restore.ipsw IPSW file.

3. Select the "Install Cydia" option, click next.

4. Put your iPhone in DFU mode.

5. Cydia will be a blank white icon when you turn on your iPhone. Open Cydia, and add the following source: http://apt.saurik.com/cydia-3.7. The normal Cydia icon and all Cydia apps will show up once you're done doing that.

Just the 3g noting about the 3gs

April 15, 2010 at 2:52 PM

Phreaking hypocrates. They won't release a jailbreak for the current 3gs yet, due to being afraid apple will patch it. Yet they release a jailbreak for an OS that is not final yet giving apple the full alert on what to patch. So when 4.0 is released all holes will be patched. What morons!

Should have released the new bootrom 3.1.3 jailbreak. Stupid hackers.

April 15, 2010 at 3:13 PM

You don't understand, the iPhone 3G can always be jailbroken so Apple can't "permanently patch" any jailbreak for the iPhone 3G. The other devices like the 3GS use a different exploit, which the hackers did not release yet. No harm is done here! :)

The 3G can not be fixed, because of the nature of the exploit. It's a hardware based exploit that allows all future iphone updates to be broken. The 3GS had a hardware revision to cripple the old bootrom exploit but other flaws in it were discovered to allow a jailbreak. Apple patches these flaws where they can once they understand how the exploit works. The 3GS is sort of the 'golden child' of the iphone world because when someone figures out a way to break in, it becomes very valuable, and it's a short time after that apple releases a small update that doesn't affect much but contains the fixed code. That and the fact that newbies don't know what backing up SHSH files is for. The issue is that all these dudes working on exploits are afraid to release their work because it would be for nothing if apple patched it by the next update. By waiting, they are giving apple a chance to release a milestone update so that we can guarantee the life of the exploit. Geohot already has two exploits on the burner. One will get released soon for 3.1.3 and then another major one for 4.0 once it gets released to the public. That is if it isn't fixed by Apple before then. Hope that helps!

That's not a guarantee. George has been considering releasing the 3.1.3 exploit early because of whiners. Also, theres no reason for Apple to delay the release of the 3G iPad simply because of a working jailbreak. I haven't heard for sure if it's also a baseband unlocker or not though. If it is, then I guess that's why we've been waiting so long. The details are pretty skimpy right now and the exploit was discovered working since late march. That's why I think the exploit will just release early to satisfy people.

@geofag what a whopper did you update foolish person its your own fault it can not be updated by accident stop chatting bubbles geohotz is a legend and he knows when time is rite why realise now so apple can patch lets wait for the 4.0 then we can have a working jb otherwise were goner be back here again stop being so selfish and shut up trolling on open forums and chatting stuff you do not know abount ie updating and then complaing and then demanding stuff geo and all other devs do this stuff for free and you get selfish foolish 1 s like your self demanding and calling do your rip mate do your no jailbreak ha ha ha put dat in de pipe and smoke it foolish 1 do your 3.13 update i do feel sorry for new stock owners or noobs but research first iam sure there will be a jb very soon

April 16, 2010 at 11:46 AM

how long unlock bb 05.12.01

April 16, 2010 at 4:32 PM

I got a 3gs a week ago, when I plugged in to activate, it automatically updated to 3.1.3, it was not my fault either. I do understand that, Geohot iz a lagend, but i really want him to release the unlock/jailbreak of the latest firmware 3.1.3 with the baseband 05.12.01. Is there a predication, when they gonna release it?

April 16, 2010 at 4:37 PM

I can't be sure cuz I am not Geohot :D Words got out that it'll be sometimes in June of this year, as Apple releases the iPhone OS 4.0.

April 16, 2010 at 6:48 PM

yeah? tell that to my locked 3G.

April 16, 2010 at 8:09 PM

Will the unlock be lost if updated to the 4.0 beta 1?

April 17, 2010 at 5:34 AM

thumbs up to u rick

April 17, 2010 at 8:20 AM

It updated automatically? You mean, and without even permission, it downloaded the entire update and patched it without giving you a moment to cancel it?

Wasting a hack on 3.1.3 is a waste of time, resources and a perfectly good exploit. If there's an abundance of exploits then sure, waste one on 3.1.3. If there are only a couple, then come on! There are a few people complaining about 3.1.3 now, but if there's no hack for 4.1 when it comes out because there are no exploits left, there will be a whole lot more people bitching.

April 18, 2010 at 12:16 AM

Why are you being rude because somebody else didn't or hasn't come up with a way to jailbreak this yet. Learn to do it yourself. Be useful not hateful.!!!

April 18, 2010 at 2:52 PM

not really sure what is going on here but I have a jailbroken 3g, thanks to the I guess DEV team" the only problem that I have found is like they said it can not be unlocked"
I would rather the phone to be unlocked than Jailbroken, the point is to be able to use MY PHONE not ATT's with the carrier that I choose

April 18, 2010 at 11:13 PM

they take out a jailbreak for 4.0 beta but they can take out a baseband 5.12.1 unlock that is crazy
