What is Jailbreaking?.. Jailbreaking is the process by which Apple s mobile operating system, iOS, is modified to run unsigned code in order to gain access to files that Apple wouldn’t normally let you access.. Jailbreaking adds unofficial application installers to your iOS device, such as Cydia, which let you download many 3rd-party applications,.. tweaks.. , and extensions that are unavailable through the App Store.. These packages open up endless possibilities to do things on your iOS device that a non-jailbroken iOS device would never be able to do.. You can install extensions that give you instant access to your system settings from anywhere on your iOS device, bypass certain restrictions set in place by Apple and the carriers, and find packages that give you more control over your iOS experience.. Jailbreaking is about freeing your iOS device from Apple s restrictions to let you install anything you want.. What are the Benefits of Jailbreaking?.. The main reason why you d want to jailbreak is to have the ability to install third party applications and tweaks that Apple doesn t or wouldn t approve in the App Store.. There are tons of applications that don t meet Apple standards and do things that Apple doesn t want you to do on your iOS device for various reasons.. For example, Apple doesn t allow you to customize your iPhone by changing app icons or the general user interface of your device.. Thanks to the jailbreak community, there are several ways to completely change the way your iPhone looks,.. WinterBoard.. being the most popular one.. Besides applications, jailbreaking also gives you access to tweaks, mods, and extensions.. These not exactly considered applications.. They bring subtle improvements to the way your iOS device operates.. For instance, Five Icon Switcher is a tweak that lets you have 5 icons in the iPhone app switcher at once, instead of the default 4.. A lot of people jailbreak their iOS device in order to unlock it to work on a different carrier.. When you want to unlock your iPhone, the first step is to jailbreak it to then run and run software that will let you have other carriers work on your iPhone.. For more information about unlocking, visit our.. dedicated unlock page.. Is Jailbreaking Legal?.. Jailbreaking is completely legal, at least here in the US.. For a long time, jailbreaking was considered illegal by the US government based on copyright litigation.. In July of 2010, the US government passed a rule that made.. jailbreaking legal.. There is nothing to worry about.. Even if you don t live in the US, there s a very slim chance that Apple would sue you because you jailbroke your iPhone.. It hasn t happened yet, and people all over the world have been jailbreaking since 2007.. Does Jailbreaking Void my Warranty?.. Yes and no.. Yes, because if you go to the Apple store and show your jailbroken iPhone to an Apple employee, you will be told that you can t receive customer support because you voided your warranty the minute you jailbroke.. Apple of course acknowledges the US government s DMCA exception ruling that makes jailbreak legal, but that doesn t mean that Apple has to allow jailbreak in its customer agreement.. From Apple s.. support article.. on jailbreaking:.. Apple strongly cautions against  ...   the different types of jailbreaks?.. The are 3 types of jailbreaks: tethered, semi tethered, and untethered.. Read this article.. to learn more about the differences between these kinds of jailbreak.. Can jailbreaking allow me to get App Store applications for free?.. Yes, but we do not recommend installing pirated apps on your jailbroken device.. Not only are you doing something illegal, but you re also stealing money from hard working developers.. We do not help troubleshoot or give support on app piracy.. Is jailbreaking easy?.. These days, jailbreaking is very easy.. Usually, you just need to.. download a piece of software.. , plug your iOS device into your computer, and run the software.. There is no specific knowledge or skills required.. You will find some very useful tutorials on how to jailbreak at the bottom of this page.. If you don t feel completely comfortable jailbreaking your iOS device, make sure to have a look at our tutorials, they will guide you through the process with step-by-step instructions and illustrations.. What is the best jailbreak tool?.. There isn t a best jailbreak tool, as tools are constantly being updated and replaced with new and improved methods.. Performing an actual jailbreak can be a very different experience depending on your iOS device and software version.. What tool you use is also determined by if you use a Mac or Windows computer.. Does it cost anything to jailbreak?.. No.. You should.. never pay for a jailbreak.. Hackers that develop jailbreaks do it for free, sometimes (rarely) asking for donations.. Some people may charge you to jailbreak your iOS device for you.. If it makes you feel better to pay someone, you can do that, but why pay when you can do it yourself for free?..

That s not to discount the fantastic work that developers put into creating jailbreak tweaks.. There are just as many good tweaks as there are less impressive ones..

But when someone takes a screenshot of a snap, the sender is provided with a notification alongside the number of screenshots taken.. As you might expect, there are more than a few ways to take a screenshot of Snapchat in secret.. A myriad of apps are available on the App Store for saving Snapchat photos and videos, plus two options for jailbroken users..

  • Title: Jailbreakme
    Descriptive info: Does Apple really hate jailbreakers?.. on Mar 21, 2013.. 133 Comments.. The cat and mouse between Apple and the jailbreak community has been going on for about 6 years now.. Every time a new jailbreak tool is released, taking advantage of some holes in Apple s tight mobile operating system, you can bet your shirt that Apple will be quick at patching those holes with a software update.. Sometimes those software updates are released faster than others.. For example, it took Apple 43 days to patch a series of vulnerabilities that allowed iOS 6 users to jailbreak their devices using evasi0n.. In comparison, it took Apple only nine days to fix the bugs that were exploited by.. JailbreakMe 3.. The time difference can be easily explained by the fact that exploits like those used by JailbreakMe represent a much a higher security threat to iOS users than those used in evasi0n.. Remember, JailbreakMe could be run directly from the device s browser, thus exposing virtually every single iOS 4.. 3 user at the time to security risks.. In comparison, evasi0n requires you to plug the device to a computer via USB.. Clearly, the security threats is much lower with.. evasi0n.. This being said, every time Apple releases a software update that patches vulnerabilities used in a jailbreak, some enthusiastic jailbreakers are always quick at calling Apple names and accusing the company to actively fight the jailbreak community.. Apple hates jailbreakers.. They just released a software update to kill the jailbreak.. , you can often read every time an iOS update that patches a jailbreak is released.. But is that really the truth? Does Apple really hate the jailbreak community or is it trying to protect the safety of its most popular operating system?..

Last August, Comex broke the news that sent shockwaves through the jailbreak community, announcing that.. he would be joining the very company.. whose security he d successfully undermined more than once.. Is it possible that Comex might pick up where he left off in the jailbreak community?.. US Government would’ve paid Comex $250,000 for exclusive use of JailbreakMe.. on Mar 23, 2012.. community owes.. a lot.. to adept hackers who find and exploit weaknesses in the design of iOS mobile operating system, thus allowing Apple s mobile gadgets to run unsanctioned software.. It s more often than not a neverending cat-and-mouse game between Apple and hackers that at the end benefits jailbreakers the most.. Say you re an expert hacker who just figured an exploit in one of Apple s products.. You could report your findings directly to Apple and help them plug those holes with a software update.. But did you know you could also hand over this valuable information to an exploit broker who will sell it to a government agency and net you a decent profit, minus the broker s commission? A U.. S.. government agency, to be precise.. Blutrol Jailbreak Tweak Makes iCade Infinitely More Useful.. on Jan 9, 2012.. 10 Comments..

Advanced RedSn0w User Preferences.. ECIDs.. Boot args.. Boot logo.. Backup.. Restoring SAM unlock Activation Tickets.. To date, RedSn0w can be used to jailbreak the following iOS devices:.. none.. iPhone 4S:.. 1, iOS 5.. iPhone 4:.. 1, , iOS 6, iOS 5.. 1, iOS 5, 4.. 5, 4.. 4, 4.. 3, 4.. 2, 4.. 1, 4.. 6, 4.. 0, 3.. iPhone 3GS:.. 1, iOS 6, iOS 5.. iPhone 3G:.. iPad 1:.. iOS 6, iOS 5.. 1, 3.. iPod Touch 4G:.. iPod Touch 3G:.. iPod Touch 2G:.. This list will be updated as new versions of RedSn0w are released.. Because RedSn0w used to require you to update your device to a newer version of iOS in order to jailbreak it, we used to strongly suggest that those of you who.. unlock the iPhone.. stay away from RedSn0w, as it might cause you to lose your ability to unlock.. That s no longer the case.. If you rely on an unlock for your iPhone and still want to run and jailbreak the latest iOS version available, you can use RedSn0w,.. PwnageTool or.. All three tools will allow you to update to a newer firmware and jailbreak it while preserving your baseband, which is the key to your unlock.. RedSn0w is a very light utility that can be downloaded in just a few seconds.. As mentioned above, RedSn0w will work with both Mac and Windows.. You can download RedSn0w from our.. downloads section.. You will see that there are several versions available there, but we suggest you always use the latest version available.. RedSn0w usually is compatible with older iPhone firmwares, so even if you want to jailbreak iOS 4.. 2 for example, you might still want to download the newer version of RedSn0w.. RedSn0w has the ability to perform both tethered and untethered jailbreaks depending on the device and the firmware version the device is running.. An untethered jailbreak is the most desirable because it allows you to reboot your device at will without needing to perform a tethered boot with the aid of a computer.. A tethered jailbreak, on the other hand, means that if you re out and about and your device reboots, it will be unusable until you can perform a tethered boot with the aid of a computer.. The chances of this happening are slim, but it is a definite annoyance if it happens to occur while you re away from your computer.. Some strides have been made to.. lessen the impact of tethered jailbreaks.. by using a so-called semitethered boot.. The semitether, is a package that allows you to reboot the device and maintain limited functionality for phone calls and such until you can get back to your computer to perform the tethered boot.. For more information on the different types of jailbreaks, see the following video explanation:.. Learning how to reliably place your iDevice into DFU mode is a step that you must learn if you want to be an effective jailbreaker.. DFU mode stands for Device Firmware Upgrade mode and differs from the restore mode with the iTunes logo that you may be used to.. DFU mode differs from recovery mode because it does not load the boot loader, hence you will see a solid black screen instead of the more friendly connect to iTunes logo.. Getting into DFU mode is super easy, but it does require some practice.. We generally recommend putting your  ...   how to use the Recovery Fix option when downgrading iOS 5 back to iOS 4.. Starting with RedSn0w 0.. 14b2, you can now restore your device and force it into DFU mode using the DFU IPSW option in the Extras Even more options.. By pointing to a stock firmware file, you can create a firmware that will place your device into DFU mode after a restore with iTunes.. Please.. view our full written tutorial.. , and the video walkthrough below for more info.. The official public version of RedSn0w supporting iOS 6 was released, and with it comes Cydia support as well.. You no longer need to install Cydia manually, as we explain in.. our full tutorial.. You can now jailbreak ioS 6.. 1 using RedSn0w using our jailbreak tutorial.. found here.. Also, check our video walkthrough below for a step-by-step visual tutorial.. If you re a developer using the iOS 6.. 1 beta, it is possible to jailbreak iOS 6.. 1 beta using the latest version of RedSn0w.. In order to do so, you must select the iOS 6.. 0 public IPSW as we explain in our.. tutorial here.. Be sure to watch our video below as well.. Fetch:.. Submits your SHSH blobs to Cydia.. Requires DFU mode.. Verify:.. A method to verify what SHSH blobs are available.. Submit:.. Submits blobs residing on your Mac or PC directly to Cydia for caching.. No DFU mode required.. Query:.. Queries the Cydia server about all blobs for a device.. Uses the ECID to accomplish this, no DFU mode required.. Stitch:.. Stitching is a feature that allows you to create an all encompassing IPSW firmware file that can always be used regardless of whether or not Apple is still signing that particular firmware.. Stitching combines both the firmware file with the SHSH blob for that device to allow you to downgrade at anytime.. This is a highly recommended procedure to do every time a new Firmware version is released.. It will ensure that you can always easily go back to a previous firmware with minimum steps.. Please see the following video tutorial to learn more about stitching.. Note:.. Stitching is not yet compatible with iPhones.. ECIDs:.. This will list all of the ECIDs for all devices used by RedSn0w.. Boot args:.. Boot arguments give you the ability to execute advanced commands while running RedSn0w.. These are generally reserved for the accompanying boot-ipt4g command line tool, but can be executed in GUI mode as well.. Please refer to boot-ipt4g.. command for valid boot args.. Boot logo:.. Allows you to designate a specific boot logo to replace the standard Pwnapple boot logo.. Should be PNG format.. Backup:.. 10b8, you can now back up arbitrary files.. The purpose of this was initially intended to backup activation tickets for the.. SAM unlock procedure.. The SAM unlock no longer works, but if you were able to generate an activation ticket with SAM before Apple fixed the issue with their activation server, it s a good idea to use RedSn0w s new backup feature to.. save off your activation ticket.. By doing this, you will be able to.. restore your activation ticket.. , and unlock your iPhone to work with that SIM, even if you ve restored your iPhone.. You can also use the Backup option to backup any other files you have stored on your device.. All you need to do is input the specific path that you want to backup.. Your device will need afc2 installed to use this, but that generally comes prepackaged with most jailbreaks, including RedSn0w.. Restore:.. 12b1, you can now easily restore SAM unlock activation tickets.. RedSn0w gives you the option to restore an indivudual plist file that you backed up manually, or restore a full Lockdown.. zip file that you created using the backup feature above.. See our full.. SAM unlock activation ticket restore tutorial.. for more details.. Downgrade:.. Starting with.. RedSn0w 0.. 11b1.. , you can downgrade to iOS 5.. 1 from higher firmware on an A5 device (iPad 2 or iPhone 4S only).. This downgrade option only works when you have SHSH blobs saved for iOS 5.. 1 either locally or on Cydia.. The ability to downgrade is something that can be fixed with a future firmware upgrade by Apple, but for some reason they decided not to fix it with iOS 5.. For that reason you are able to downgrade iOS 5.. 1 and iOS 5.. 1 to iOS 5.. 1 if you have your SHSH blobs saved for 5.. Please see our video walkthrough, and.. tutorial on downgrading with RedSn0w.. for a step-by-step guide on the entire downgrade process.. We also have a dedicated.. Windows tutorial for downgrading with RedSn0w..

  • Title: How to Save SHSH Blobs and Downgrade With iFaith
    Descriptive info: How to Save SHSH Blobs and Downgrade With iFaith.. Backing up your SHSH blobs is an integral part of the jailbreaking philosophy.. Without them, it s a sure bet that you won t be able to downgrade your firmware in the future when Apple releases updated firmware and stops signing the old.. Fortunately, there is a way to downgrade regardless of whether or not Apple is signing the firmware.. To do that, though, you ll need your SHSH blobs from that firmware.. The latest version of iFaith is.. iFaith, like the more famous TinyUmbrella utility, is a tool that allows you to save your SHSH blobs for later use.. But that s pretty much where the similarities end.. While TinyUmbrella fetches the SHSH blobs from Apple s server, iFaith will extract them directly from your device.. Unlike TinyUmbrella, iFaith features the ability to create custom firmware (IPSW files) that are stitched together with your SHSH blobs.. In theory, this allows you to downgrade firmware in the future using a standalone firmware file.. iFaith also differs from TinyUmbrella because it ties into its own caching server, while TinyUmbrella relies on Cydia s server for retrieving SHSH blobs.. Lastly, iFaith features the ability to boot into PwnedDFU mode, which is a special type of recovery mode that s necessary for iTunes to recognize and restore to custom created firmware.. For simplicity s sake, just think of iFaith as  ...   if Apple is no longer signing that firmware.. The actual SHSH blob backup portion does not make any modifications to your device.. All it does is save your SHSH blobs to a file on your desktop and/or create custom firmware.. iFaith in itself cannot make any modifications to your device.. You must use iTunes or some other tool to make the modifications.. e.. g.. restoring to custom firmware.. Will iFaith s Signed IPSW s Preserve my Baseband?.. Yes,.. this has been confirmed.. by the developer of iFaith, iH8sn0w.. Download iFaith.. You can.. download the latest version of iFaith.. in our downloads section.. The original version of iFaith debuted on June 2nd, 2011.. iFaith was most recently updated.. on December 4th, bringing with it support for iOS 5 and APTicket backup.. This latest update is significant because, if done as a preventive measure now, it will allow iOS 5 users to create signed firmwares that they will be able to use to.. downgrade in the future.. This was not possible with any previous tool.. Save Your SHSH Blobs and Create Custom Firmware with iFaith.. Use iFaith s Caching Server to Retrieve Saved SHSH Blobs.. And that, folks, is iFaith.. It s a great tool for Windows users, and a life saver for those of you who may want to downgrade your iPhone firmware in the future.. Let us know what you think about iFaith.. in our forums..
